Sholder -> Greater Inscription of the Gladiator
Meta Socket should always be +2% armor. All bosses do physical damage, only a few do magical as well.
Cloak -> Major Agility
Socket for Agi, never socket for dodge. Agi costs the same as dodge rating, but gives you more dodge, crit, and a slight amount of armor.
If your stuck having to socket for yellow, consider either breaking it and going pure stamina, or using Enduring Forest Emerald
. Although defence is far from desirable, i consider it the best 'yellow' gem for tanking.
Don't bother socketing for expertise, with talents your almost done, the few leather items you pick up will more then put you towards if not over the expertise cap. Focus on your mitigation.
Defence isn't a stat we like. Take it only if you have nothing better to gain.
Boots, well you can either go with stamina or with agi. If your just starting out, i'd go with stamina, then shift to getting Agi.
I also wouldn't bother with the speed enchant on boots. Your a druid, you have catform/travel when you need speed, the few times you want to kite something, charge and sprint will suffice.
Weapon -> Mongoose
-> Blood Draining
I'm going to believe that blood-draining is more useful, unfortunately i haven't tested the enchant out yet (i haven't been able to get a staff worthy of such an enchant yet). Eitherway, i think mongoose is pretty outdated. I find it hard to keep up, unlike at 70 where it was up fulltime. (either its procs less on level and/or its because i have a fast staff),
Go mongoose if you want to save cash.
Prismatic Gems. I'd go with staminax3. Stamina is your primary stat. Healers can cover you if you under geared and have poor avoidance, they can't cover you if you don't have enough life.

Here is the talents I use for tanking, I tank in 25 man ulduar with this. http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#0ZxGGscrzceRcczAkbE0z:0zn
#1 stat to stack for feral druids as dps or tanking... Agi, all gems and enchants, the 8 agi and 12 stam is great for blue slots. If it's a yellow, I'll use 8 agi, 8 hit.
that being said I think I'm going to start using this spec here as I have a few figths in Ulduar that a stun is great for.. http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#0ZxGGscrdceRcczAkbe0z:0zn
And while I'm at it if your after a dps spec you can't go wrong with this, http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#0ZxGMcfrzbeR0huAkbAczb:Vmc
You lose a bit from FB crits, but honestly, you cast it so rarely that the 20% increase healing done to you and feral charge more then balance it.
