Cataclysm Level 85 Tanking Gems

As you can see from this list, there are a few crossovers, like the meta gem and a lot more options for the threat set compared to the survivability set.

Just keep in mind that this early in the expansion content, you’re going to want to stick primarily to the survivability style of gemming as you’ll be getting hit extremely hard and often until we get a few more dungeons into the expansion.

If you do choose to gem a little bit for threat or to shore up your hit and expertise caps, just keep in mind that when you do so, you’re largely going to make it harder for healers to keep you alive so keep that in mind before you dip your toe too far into those waters.

    Nice list but what about the mastery gem?
