If I go Shield Spec, should I focus on Anticipation, Toughness or Parry?

Goal is to be able tank 5 man stuff and get some self-sustain.

Anticipation, Parry and Toughness are highly suggested.

Hello! Thank you for the awesome and detailed guide!
I was wondering if it is easy for you for the talents, since they updated them, to upload a screenshot of them using the Turtle WoW link . https://talents.turtle-wow.org/
Thank you again!

Generally, you're looking to tank a dungeon 2levels above its suggested minimum level.

If you have more questions, please let me know :)

Ok, that is an interesting way of looking at it.

So, can I start tanking RFC at 17 or w/e, or do I need to wait until like mid-game dungeons?

I am asking because you cite several abilities (in the repertoire) that come a bit later in the game.

You can start tanking right away, with the 2 level above range as suggested. Shamans have a good threat once earth shock and rockbiter weapon is available. From level 40 and below most tanks need two things, threat and hit points. Going for high armor and Hp at lowers levels will help.

Obviously there are parts of those guide for max level, though generally it is good for leveling as well.

A note though, some elementals are immune or resistant to earth shock so be careful on pulls and let the dps know you will need a little time to hold aggro.

Most of the time just making sure Rockbiter weapon is active, Frost Shock and placing target icon markers will be enough.

To OP, in order to make shaman tanking a thing, first you need to unlock 100%

Watch this video about moonkin tanking:

It's quite funny/ironic that compared to a warrior tank, moonkin tank is in fact more intellectually demanding.

I would go as far as to say, Moonkin
tank, priest tank, etc.. have the hardest rotations in WoW.

Being 2-3 levels higher is suggested, if you're playing with friends and communicating you can get away with tanking on level.
