"For starters, having recently leveled a druid, a rogue, a shaman and a hunter past level 20 (the druid is level 77, the shaman max level, the rogue level 32 and the hunter level 19)"With regards to your Hunter, this sentence seems contradictory ^^My prot warr is currently level 77, has taken me months and about 16 days /played, but am so looking forward to tanking raids on it :)Quick question though, should I avoid pugging raids until I reach a relatively high gear level? I only have 1 85 currently (a Holy Paladin), and I can play it well enough to pug while lacking the same level gear as possibly the average pug healer.I just wondered if I should be wary doing this as tank, on the basis that the lack of gear makes it hard for the healers, not myself.

As long as you're geared and specc'd right, there's no reason to sit around grinding for a few extra drops to push you further over the required ilvl for raiding. It's quite easy to get the few rep epics and maybe some ZG/ZA pieces if you like but they're far from necessary for raiding. You will probably find it tougher to pug a raid, though, as people in general perfer overgeared tanks and healers for content.
