Good level to attempt Imperial City Prison on Veteran mode?

Recently got my tank to level 50, and I am cp378.

I have 5/5 Ebon Armory gear. I posted yesterday in another section about being new to tanking and received a lot of good advice from fellow players on here that I am working on implementing. I tanked my first vet dungeon with this Tank yesterday (normally I am a DPS and have no issues) and it was a decent experience. The last boss was a little confusing (vDarkshade 2) being a tank.

Back to my original point. I really want to do Imperial City Prison to get the Lord Warden Helm (been following Alcast's guide for the Catalyst Tank) and it calls for this monster set. I have not yet run a DLC dungeon, but I have watched tanking guide videos on YouTube for this dungeon.

With Tri-Stat food (Longfin Pasty with Melon Sauce) my Health sits at about 35K, Stamina at about 22K and magicka is about 17K.

Any tips for this dungeon? I feel like I should wait, and get better gear, enchants, etc... before attempting, but sometimes I like to jump the gun and go through, just to see where I stand, but then that may cause a bad experience for other players in a group.

    CP300 should be enough. Just make sure you watch/read a guide and have 2 DDs capable of pulling at least 25K ST.

    Agreed, ICP is long and the boss fights are heavy on mechanics. Once you are past CP 300 it's knowledge, not level, that matters whether you can complete it on vet. Look up those guides and find some capable DPS.
