Unless you're doing a lot of solo work I'd invest more in your armor items. HP/AC/STA type stuff.

Your main role is to hold aggro and take/absorb damage not dish it out. I'd prefer a SK/pally with good armor and an average weapon than channeling all their plat into a good wep but be in rags/bronze [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.] (as a cleric)

Disagreed, weapon is the most important thing to get, outside of raiding.

+1 for Argent Protector, that's a very good value buy.

Everyone is DPS. If your tank is killing the target faster, then you are taking less damage in the end. Weapon upgrade makes WAY more difference than an armor piece upgrade. Trying to upgrade all armor pieces costs far more money and leaves you with shitty DPS still, which is crippling in many situations.

Please stop with your "DPS is everything" nonsense. You are not capable of giving P99 advice right now.

OP does need a decent weapon I agree, but you are just plain silly if you think a naked tank with a great weapon isn't going to be dying fairly often. You can't DPS when you are dead. You can get a full set of crusty armor for like 1K, so I am not sure where you are getting this idea that a full set of decent armor is highly expensive. Add in HP rings (+55) and Orc Fang earrings and you are at 2k spent total.

To OP's question, Argent Defender and Ebon Mace would be your best bet for cheap weapons on Blue with good ratios. Reaver is obviously very nice too, but it's more expensive than both of those weapons combined and harder to sell back when you are done with it.
