Blood dk transition from mastery to multistrike gear

3 posts in this topic

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: 9/10M Nighthold | 2/3M Trial of Valor | 7/7M Emerald Nightmare   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:   1-2 Melee or Ranged DPS
      1 Healer
      High: Holy Paladin
      Medium: Disc Priest
      *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 and be a minimum iLvl of 885. You need to have the best gear available to you, (BoE, Crafted) with gems and top end enchants. 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 Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!

      Hive have opened up recruitment!

      Hive is a 2-day mythic raiding guild on Ravencrest-Alliance. We are a core of raiders who have been together since before the launch of Legion and are looking to expand on our Raiding Roster for the opening of Tomb of Sargeras. We are a fairly new guild and as such are a work in progress.
      We are aiming for a spot within the top 20-30 guilds on Ravencrest on progress, and are looking for more raiders with an ambition and dedication at the same level.
      Recruitment:
      1x Rogue
      1x Warlock 
      1x Mage 
      1x Rogue
      Legion Progression:
      Emerald Nightmare: 7/7 M
      Trial of Valor: 2/3 M
      The Nighthold: 5/10 M

      Raid Days:
      The raiding times in Hive are Thursday and Sunday from 19:30 until 23:30 Server time (CEST). Invites to the raids will go out starting at 19:15. We require all raiders to be ready and available to execute the first pull of the raid at 19:30.

      Loot:
      The loot in Hive is distributed amongst the raiders through a Loot Council. This council includes 3 Officers and at least 2 Raiders. During the remainder of the Nighthold Raid, all Trial Raiders will have equal rights to any loot drops as a core raider - Once Tomb of Sargeras is open however, Raiders will have priority over Trial Raiders within reason.

      Requirements:
      -All communication during raids will be in English and we require all our raiders to be on Discord and able to speak, with a functioning mic. 
      -80% attendance on main raids. Due to this low attendance requirement, we have a large roster of players and all raiders may be subject to rotation in the raiding team on any given night.
      -A positive attitude towards constructive critisism - We expect all raiders to know their class through and through.
      -Preparation. All raiders are required to show up with enough Flasks, Food, Health potions and Combat potions to last through a night of extensive progress wiping. We may also ask you to use Defiled Augment Runes on progress fights. Vantus Runes are provided by the guild bank.

      Contact:
      If you are looking for further information or have any questions, feel free to contact any of our Officers on Battle.tag:
      Elesís - Elesis#2594
      Jösh - JoshSmith#2461

      Or visit Hive - Ravencrest

      I know shamans are kinda messed up right now, what else is new.
      But I'm up to 900 and my already underwhelming DPS has seen no significant increase. I'm pretty sure it's tied to my low haste rating, but I'd like to make sure and see if it's just that or something else I can work to change.

      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/tichondrius/nimbonya
       
      I'll Sim around 760k, This week I got 630k on Krosus, going up to 900k on Skorp and Tich.
      I feel like this is all far too low, one of our top dps is a warlock at i897 and often easily goes 900k and up just on single target.
      I could really use some help figuring out what I've done wrong and what I could improve.

      My usual priority rotation works as follows:
      >Maintain Landslide/Flametongue/Hailstorm
      >Doom winds when off CD and Stormbringer proc'd.
      >Stormstrike when proc'd
      >LavaLash when proc'd
      >Stormstrike when off CD
      >Lavalash when 90+ Maelstrom
      >Rockbiter when -90 Maelstrom
      Feral Spirit-Crash Lightning combo and Doom Winds I'll sometimes delay if there's an add/burn phase, and I have a habit of refreshing Flametongue and Hailstorm on CD if I don't have any procs. I'll also occasionally mismanage Maelstrom and need to do 2-3 Rockbiters to get back up to speed.

      My opener consists of: Prolonged Power>Feral Spirit>Rockbiter>Crash Lightning>Flametongue>Frostbrand>Stormstrike
