This is a guide aimed for plate classes wanting to tank at lvl80. Unlike a spellcasting dpser tanks have defense rating as their main priority. An able tank should have these minimum stats
25000hp unbuffed
540 defense(that is 689 defense rating)
20% dodge, parry and block

By going by those basics you can then start making your gear build for tanking naxx. And also focus your aim when looking for gear so it go faster and easier. Althou after looking up every nice drop for a tank i figured that there arent exactly much to choose from. Wyrmrest seem to be a good faction to rep grind with for starters and Utgarde/Nexus Seem to b the main instances for you to run. If you have any suggestions on things i could add to this topic feel free to reply.

Main hand:
Infantry Assault Blade Drops in Utgarde Keep Heroic

Bulwark of the Noble Protector Drops in Nexus Heroic
Titansteel Shield Wall Made by blacksmiths
Crygil's Discarded Plate Panel Bought by badges

Cloak of Peaceful Resolutions Requires honored with wyrmrest
Cloak of the Enemy Drops in Nexus Heroic
Tattered Castle Drape Drops in Utgarde Keep Heroic(trash mobs, BOE)
Tattered Castle Drape World drop(check ah)

Breastplate of the Solemn Council Requires revered with Wyrmrest
Sun-Emblazoned Chestplate Drops in Halls of Stone Heroic
T7 from badge vendor

Tempered Titansteel Treads Blacksmithing
Sabatons of Draconic Vigor Requires revered with wyrmrest
Toxin-Tempered Sabatons Requires honored with Ebon blade

Fireproven Gauntlets Requires Exalted with Kirin Tor
Daunting Handguards Blacksmithing(cheap as hell but not rly that good)
T7 from badge Vendor

Tempered Titansteel Helm Blacksmithing
Arcane-Shielded Helm Drops in Nexus heroic
Engineer head

Staggering Legplates Drops in Utgarde Keep Heroic

Iron Dwarf Smith Pauldrons Drops in Halls of Lightning Heroic

Waistguard of Living Iron Bought with Emblems
The General's Steel Girdle Drops in Halls of Lightning(not that great)

Vengeance Bindings Blacksmithing
Well you can pretty much go with what you want here, since there are no good ones available outside naxx

Chained Military Gorget Bought with emblems
Titanium Earthguard Chain Jewelcrafting

Titanium Earthguard Ring Jewelcrafting
Unsmashable Heavy Band Drops in Utgarde Keep Heroic

Well trinkets are completely up to what u want(again)
The Darkmoon card trinkets are nice but costly
Seal of the Pantheon is nice if u get it to drop in Halls of Lightning normal
Valor Medal of the First War Is nice if u lack dodge and can be bought with emblems
Sphere of Red Dragon's Blood Drops in Nexus heroic and is nice if you lack threat or hit rating.
