So my guild finally downed Sha of Fear but i really feel that i have no survivability as a tank. I don't know if that's just how the fight is or if i am somehow reforged/gemmed wrong but I had to use every CD i had pretty much whenever they were off cooldown and for a good portion of the fight i was almost dead lol. Obviously this is only when I'm currently tanking. The other tank is a bear and it really didn't look like she was having the survivability issues that i seem to be having. I'll post up my armory and also the WOL of tonights raid. If anyone has any advice, feel free to let me know.

While typically you'll want as much mastery as possible, Sha does a Thrash attack which you'll need all the EH you can get. Unglyph VB
, use a stam flask instead of elixirs, and try to save a Death Strike or two when you see his Thrash buff go up.
Try to use IBF so it'll last through two Thrashes, VB whenever you're not confident, and obviously Bone Shield and DRW whenever. ERW and spam DS in emergencies. Get the Purgatory talent if you don't already.

Other than what was already said, you may want to use one or two stam trinkets over avoidance/mastery ones if you got some (the shado-pan one is nice).
Also Army of the Dead
can also be used as emergency mitigation cd.
You did the links wrong, the tags are fine if you want to mask the links, but there is empty space between the tags which makes them not show up, ill fix them for you:armoryWOL
What i dont understand is your balance of parry and dodge. Dodge is no longer equal to parry, it has far worse DR, we want to reforge out of dodge as much as you can while saving parry, while you reforged mainly parry. I am also reluctant to the exp/hit style since than Death strike change in cata (missed/parried/dodged ones dont do damage but they still provide the healing and the shield). Only reason to reforge to these stats is dps, but since you got survival problems you may want to reverse that.
Plug yourself into reforge lite, avoidance/mastery blood (and lower the weight of dodge from 1 to like 0.7) and it should get fixed with 2 clicks.
PS2: Check if you got 1500 jpgs to upgrade those blue legs of yours.
