Heirloom items are designed to Power you through the old world content before you get bored of doing it all over again... so ofcorse their only going to make a DPS set

"Heirloom items are designed to Power you through the old world content before you get bored of doing it all over again... so ofcorse their only going to make a DPS set"I understand the logic, but it's annoying logic.I'd like the shoulders for my alts, not so that I can blitz them up to Endgame as fast as is humanly possible, but so that I can pick and choose my questing better, and access some of the more interesting old-world dungeons sooner.I'd personally love to be able to level an alt quickly to - say - 30 in order to run the SM again, or to 45 to have another shot at Mara.

What exactly is awesome tanking gear? Crap plate with spirit on it? Because that's pretty much what I was wearing when I tanked everything from deadmines to strath. I'm not sure what kind of awesome pieces you were wearing, but there certainly weren't a lot in classic WoW. BC changed that, but Wrath again doesn't particularly require a complete tank set. Or you can just pick up cobalt pieces at 70. If you run an instance and you honestly think that a tanking chest is better, then just roll on it.

@zappoI really agree with this. Back in vanilla, I played a warrior (my 2nd toon ever) up through the levels, I was spec'd Arms and using whatever gear I got from quests or drops, with the occasional crafted item from my smithing. I had no trouble tanking anything I wanted to, sub-60.Now I happen to be leveling a warrior again (I changed servers at one point in the interim), I'm prot this time, with enough time, knowledge, and disposable income to be geared in anything I want. I can still tank anything I've hit (lvl 44 as of now), but I feel comparatively OP'd doing it now. It really wasn't hard back in the day, and it's a helluva lot easier now.So, for Cyanea, I realize I'm saying something you already know here, but maybe solo with heirlooms and switch out pieces for tanking gear specifically when you're doing dungeons, and only swap the pieces that you actually have a tanking upgrade for. When I leveled a feral druid, I always maintained a set of healing gear, so that I could get groups more easily. Even if you don't, you can tank in the heirlooms alright anyway.
