That is me, I seem to be wiping on the pillar transition phase/decapitate phase. Though both me and the other tank are new to the raid team and to Lei Shen himself. So there is a learning curve.
Is there anything I can tighten up about my Character though?

well while your gear level might be lower then one prefers on lei shen, it should be enough.
what's causing the wipes for you guys?
is it you and the other tank failing on certain mechanics? or just in general that people mess things up.
transition phases should be the easiest on tanks, since they aint targetted by many of the spells (we had our 2 tanks take a platform toghter on normal while rest was spread out around the other 3 in 10man). this had them only deal with Bouncing Bolt
(and prehaps Diffusion Chain
not sure never paid attention if they got hit by it).
this should make phase transitions super simple for tanks, but the rest of the team should pay more attention too what's happening. also the tanks wont require healing during this since they hardly be taking any damage.
as for decapitate, that only happens during P1 and my only experience with it is on LFR where it hardly deals damage. but you must make sure you properly run away when he uses it or it will one shot you.
some practice is required on it. took our tanks a few tries too get the hang of it. but they just do it now as if is a second nature during this encounter.

Don't see your gear as a problem. http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/ragnaros/Dedraterx/simple
Is my gear, we were wiping last night tho but that was cause of the lack of focus and lack of healing in our raid grp, had no issues at all with the decapitates and transition. My friend was better geared then me tho so i taunted 5-7 seconds before decapitate, and started to swap platform, then when decapitate came i just heroic leaped the heck outta there. What is killing you really? Is it the decapitate dmg or the mess of things going on?
