My WAR just hit lvl 63 and I've been asked to co-tank with another war. Any suggestion on good tanking gear?

Your DD gear.

War doesn't really swap gear for tanking.

You can macro any haste gear you may have for Utsusemi and Enmity gear for Provoke and Warcry, but as the above poster mentioned, your DD gear is what allows you to hold hate in the first place.

What he said: DD gear first then worry about enmity gear on hate job abilitys. Its also worth noting that at 63 eruca are going to be on the menu, macroing in Lorica & your (i asume you have these from WS set) Str rings when you see incinerate coming should help you resist their damn fire breath more often, if you are getting barfire from a mage.

AF legs are not bad enmity gear at that level, neither are hands. Neither of what those pieces replace will lower your DoT enough that you will gain significantly less hate.

Honestly, depending on what you are fighting, Warrior's Lorica is a fantastic piece for tanking. However if what you are fighting is xp mobs for xp, you shouldn't use it. Haubergeon is better.
