This list consists of all current available gear. Each slot shows the top 5 or 6 ranked choices. In the model used to obtain these rankings, I admittedly favor block. For magical mitigation fights or just for your own personal preference, you may wish to use a slightly different model. In almost all cases where my model creates slight differences in the list order, the differences are just that– slight.
Remember that some of the Tier drops are different for Defiant/Guardian. For the Raid Tier 1 set, the Guardian set is called Valorous. The “of the Keeper” set is the new crafted stuff. That set’s actually fairly solid, especially considering you can augment it.
Some of the Hammerknell stuff might be missing/incorrect since new gear is being discovered every day. I made random notes for items where Zam didn’t have some items yet. If you see something that needs to be fixed or added, feel free to comment!

Note: Trinkets are highly situational for Cleric tanks. I’d suggest keeping a few on hand. Here are a few good ones to look for, listed in no particular order:
[Sacred Heirloom of Eth]
Greater Planar Essences:
Note: These are fairly debatable if they’re even worth using or if 6 lessers are better. It honestly depends on your tanking style, raid/group composition, and other factors. I’ll list my two favorites.
