So I have a gnome 3.4 with my debian wheezy distro.

How can I upgrade it to 3.6? I tried searching repos, but could not find anything. The only thing I found was for Ubuntu, and the solution 404'd on me on update. What should I do?

Thank you for the help!

If you want to stick to Debian stable/testing/unstable packages, I think you are out of luck. Debian is usually cautiously slow in updating its packages. If you are willing to use packages from Debian's experimental repo, I did notice that some GNOME 3.6 packages are available there (like gnome-shell), but keep in mind that these packages are not guaranteed to work at all and may break your system (the same goes for installing most Ubuntu PPAs).
