Thanks for posting.

They look just like what you'd expect entry-level set bonuses to be. It does not seem to me, at a glance, that they'd affect rotations very much.

I like the tank bonuses...lots of improved self-healing, because you know...DK's are pretty terrible in that department currently ;) I love tanking on my Death Knight...it's by far the most intricate and involved form of tanking. Using Death Strike correctly makes a good Death Knight even better and the set bonus will only enhance the difference between the know-hows and the know-how-nots.

The DPS bonuses are just improved throughput...pretty standard. Btw, Vlad, do you play a DK as your main?

I'm loving the blood bonuses. So pumped about the extra healing from DS. Can't wait!

Hey I am new to the forums so correct me if I am doing something wrong

I just got 2 tier 14 pieces from LFR (the Helm and the Shoulders) and I was wondering if the 2 piece set bonus is worth getting rid of my helm and my shoulder that I already have on (I have the Yi's least favourite helmet and the shoulders of Autumnlight)

Hey there!

The 2P set bonus for tanks, and for Blood Death Kinghts in this case, is not something as essential and easy to quantify as the DPS set bonuses.

You're looking at downgrading your stats in favour of getting a lower cooldown on Vampiric Blood - and I would argue that in general, this isn't worth doing. You could switch those pieces in for the bonus on any fight where you anticipate that you're going to need Vampiric Blood more often than it's normal cooldown, but that's about it.

I also realize you posted this a long time ago and I missed it - quite likely your gear dilemma is now out of date.

      So I got into a dungeon (Mana Tombs) with a level 71 Frost DK, and this guy was doing some absurd damage 1 shotting everything in his path.
      Was just wondering if anyone could possibly tell me how this guy was doing so much damage at this level

      Hey guys. I have a choice between an 885 ilvl horn of valor, and an 855 Memento of angerboda with a socket, and I can't decide which to choose. I'm unholy, so the vers is one of my lower prio stats, and I'm thinking the socket, extra strength (since the horn basically works out at 1025 strength average) and procs makes the memento better? It seems kinda hard to imagine that with the 30 ilvl difference though. What do you guys think?

      Hello, since I couldn't find an updated Trinket list for UH DKs for the new patch. Ill be asking here:
      Right now I have an 880 Ursoc's Rending Paw and 865 Hunger of the Pack equipped. I got an ilvl 865 Eye of Command from Karazhan. Should I replace HoP for EoC or nah? My armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/the-maelstrom/Daxtër/simple
      Thanks for the answers in advance :) .
      EDIT: Forgot to mention(might be relevant to take this decision), my HotP has a socket. Right now I'm gemming and enchanting haste, trying to get to 18-19% haste.
