Blood dk transition from mastery to multistrike gear

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a few questions about BoS, legendary ring, multistrike, trinkets and general dps tips as a blood dk.

 

Here is my armory http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/hyjal/Getrekt/simple

 

I am currently 13/13hc thanks to pugs, not going to MM yet since my guild is still progressing through hc. I have been stacking mastery to increase my survivability and so far it worked fine for me but I will get my legendary ring next reset and the 50% bonus dmg on use appeals me, since it is on a 2mn cd I imagine that it is possible to get insane damages if paired with BoS and dps trinkets. 

Here are my few questions

  •  Will BoS be a decent increase even if I do not have an optimised multistrike gear ? I can push it to 1k5 unbuffed currently
  •  If I use BoS, is it worth it to use socketed normal Hellrender (343 multistrike) instead of hc Calamity's edge ?
  •  Does a multistrike gear nerfs my mitigation by a lot compared to a mastery build ? This is my main concern, I'm scared to switch from mast to ms and be unable to tank hc properly
  •  With a mstrike build, which dps trinkets should I use out of normal EDH, normal DC and HC Pebble ?
  • What kind of pull do I have to do ? I imagine something along the lines of 6s army > 1s prepot > taunt > pop ring and DRW > BB > BB > DS > DS > BoS > unglyphed OB > ERW > DS > DS > PL > DS > BB > BB
  • I have seen a few Blood dk having 6 death runes at once, does someone know how it can be done ? Seems to be a huge gain on ST fights where you can pretty much spam DS

I know some things for sure, to reply to your points. Other more skilled thoerycrafters can fill the gaps :)

 

The base ring has still only 25% increase on use. The patch from Aug 5 regarding the ring has apparently not taken place. A GM assured me that "we are aware of this and are actively working on the fix" in a ticket. You can only imagine what it means.

 

It is still considerable boost to use the ring with BoS, but keep some things in mind. You can activate it just as well as your co-tank. Communication is the key here. It happened quite a few times, when my tank buddy pressed the button at the most inopportune moment when I had low RP, ERW on CD and few runes to get some buffer. BoS would not last more than few seconds. You need to let each other know when you are ready, if you use it as offensive CD. It is ok to use it offensively when there is no real danger, but sometimes you will learn to appreciate the defensive part (shared health pool + damage reduction). In that case, you will use it, regardless of BoS sustainability, just for smoothness or even survival.

 

@6 Death Runes at once: you do it by PL and BT gaming. This is not the default state of regeneration and not something you should actively seek to do, but it is possible. Say you use 2x BB in a row: one BR is depleted, the other BR is regenerating, all other runes are ready or regenerating. Use BT once and the depleted BR will become DR. You can convert the other one in the same fashion, while managing other runes to be DRs as well. There are other ways, this was just an example.

Thanks for your answer, about the ring, it won't be a problem since my cotank won't have the ring till 2 lockouts min and anyway in hc we will only use it offensively unless it is zakuun or tyrant I think.

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 8/9M BoD | 2/2H CoS | 8/8M Uldir CE   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:
      Ranged DPS: High: Shadow Priest, Mage Medium: Warlock 1 Healer:
      High: Resto Shaman, Mistweaver Monk
       
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience. You need to have the best gear available to you with top end enchants and gems where available. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Alloren (Alloren#1606), Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some *filtered*.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are accepting applications for any role, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.
