The new Ruby Sanctum encounter has two tank items, which have been added to the tank gear list maintained by Kuren. That is a list, based on iLevel, of all the useful tank gear you can get.
Halion drops two new items, with a few versions of each.

The boots are great, there’s no debate. For most tanks, they will be a upgrade. If you have not bought the crafted i264, these could be a huge upgrade. They made the BiS list for EH. Some tanks might have a loss of expertise to consider if already wearing [item]grinning skull greatboots[/item].
The trinket… I’m not a fan. It’s equip-effect of armour is very good, of course. It’s on-use is meh. We had a good chat bout it over here. I would not go out of my way to get this trinket, at all.
Here’s a diagram, which I agree with, that shows why avoidance isn’t all that hot right now.
It maps the probability of being hit five times in a row against your total avoidance. You need to have about 53% avoidance (in Icecrown) or better before you get much usefulness from avoidance, and then you still need very large (ie. unrealistic) increments to gain from additional avoidance. The diagram is courtesy of tankspot, which we discussed at length here particularly relating to the various trinket choices tanks.
