I tanked through most of the 1-60 grind or so in pretty much just heirloom pieces. I had the WG shoulders, whose resilience and stamina were a reasonable help, but the Valor chest and the Venerable Mass of McGowan mace as my MH. The Mace is just a flat better weapon for most of its lifetime, with as much AP as the sword, plus a whole mess of agility (dodge!) It's a bit more expensive, but totally worth it.I did have to surf the AH (or wowhead for quest rewards) to keep my shield reasonably up-to-date, but that was it for the most part.The real truth is that the 1-60 dungeons are pretty easy to tank, and with three pieces of heirloom gear being the equivalent of an at-level blue item, you're already plenty geared.I'd have killed for an heirloom shield, though.
