Please note - Some items are not yet available with current content, but this is still BiS (best in slot before raid gear)
I also only posted 3 items for BiS, there is more, but I wanted to limit the amount of items added.  Some item wont be added till later. Here is a list of alternative items that can also be used for tanking at 60.

Updated the gear guide, Unfortunately, the BBCode for color is not working for me, So I had to manually remove every little color code I had, and I also updated the Talent builds in the first post.
