If you're looking for defensive stats, this belt is an upgrade from the t3 belt. You lose strength, but you gain on armor, stamina, defense, block rating, and block value.
I find that if I can get pure defensive items like this, it's great. If I want some more offensive/threat stats, I just swap in some dps pieces. IMO more flexible than having gear with strength and defensive stats.
Amazing tanking waist piece compared to Tier 3 Dreadnaught Waistguard (
Relatively easy quest line if you have a great guild and can form solid instance groups.
This is an excellent belt for any tank, and could quite possibly be the best pre-raid tanking belt in the game currently... for protection warriors.
As far as Paladin Tanking goes, this is still a good belt. One might not look at it due to the fact that it has no +Spell Dmg on it, however the +Block Rating helps out a ton whenever Redoubt and Holy Shield are procced.
Considering that the only +Defense/+Spell Dmg tanking belt that Paladins are using is the
with appropriate socketed gems, there's not many choices.
Thus, for a Tankadin, this too is an excellent tanking belt. By the time this belt even becomes available, the Tankadin should have hit the 490 soft-cap, and should be instead working on +Spell Dmg / +Block Rating gear.
If you wanted to, you could get this belt in 1 day of playing. Everything leading up to the 2 dungeon runs are easy thanks to
. I was using some random DPS belt before and this bad boy was a huge improvement. Every tank should get this belt. It's relatively easy to get, and the stats are exactly what a tank needs.
If you are a prot paladin, you may want to make every effort to get this belt ASAP. Very very nice for instances as well as solo grinding. Very few plate items have Block Rating, Block Value, AND Defense Rating all rolled into one.
I'd also like to mention that this belt is best for paladin tanks, however drakkanor mentioned there is only one paladin tanking belt prior to this one. I'd like to refute that; I am scryer and I use
until I can get this belt, and if you are aldor there is also
If you're farming heroics for the hundreds of badges you need post-2.3, you definitely want to maximize your Block Value.
This one of the best +Block Value items you can get, pre-Zul'Aman and 25-man raids.

*3/3 Shield Spec'd: 732 Block Value
732 damage off each hit is massive. Turn on the Auto-blocker and you take 992 off each block. 8 Holy Shield blocks and that's a whopping 7,932 damage mitigated -- nothing to laugh at.
Note that generally choosing block value itemization will lower your overall avoidance. Make sure you fill up your other item slots/sockets with enough to reach uncrittable/uncrushable.
