Blood dk transition from mastery to multistrike gear

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.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: 
      Stjern#2802 or Azkey#21565

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hello there!

      <Shadow> on Argent Dawn has been going since 2009. We are a close-knit community and strongly believe in recruiting people who will fit in with us rather than just whoever is topping the meters. We also believe that having a busy RL life with job/family/social commitments and committing to Mythic raiding as a hobby we're all passionate about are not mutually exclusive. We are looking to bolster our line-up to push for Cutting Edge in Antorus.

      About us
       
      We progress raid Thursdays and Sundays, 20:00-23:00 and 19:30-22:30 respectively (all times server time)
      We have a non-mandatory farm raid Fridays at 20:30 that socials and alts are welcome to
      We use Discord for voice communication and have an active server to hang out, chat, and organise M+ runs
      We maintain a mature environment - having a laugh is great, but bullying, endless meme-spamming and the like are not welcome
      We believe in learning from your mistakes - you will never be yelled at, but you will be asked whether you know what you did wrong and how you can fix it
       

      What we expect from recruits
       
      Sign up to raids ahead of time and give us a heads-up in case of longer absences
      Be there 15 minutes before raid start and bring your own consumables as back-up to feasts and cauldrons
      Do your homework - research encounters thoroughly and understand them
      Understand and know how to play your class
      Have Discord installed and a working microphone, ready to speak when required but without cluttering up comms with chatter
      You don't need to grind to the point of burn-out, but keep up with AP traits and do M+ to hone your skills and supplement your gear
      Be a team player and bring a positive attitude. Wipes happen in Mythic. Constructive feedback is great, backseat raid leading is not.


      What we are currently looking for

      A rule that applies to all potential recruits is: We do not recruit for the bench, but we will always take the team that is most likely to defeat the boss and cannot promise everyone they will always be in for every fight. When things are equal in terms of performance and required composition, we much prefer to rotate people in and out over benching someone for an entire night.
      One Healer - Paladin preferred, but any class that isn't priest will be considered
      One Tank - Bear, Brewmaster or Blood DK
      Melee DPS - got one spot for a Rogue
      Ranged DPS - Boomkins, Shadow Priests, Warlocks and Hunters

      If this sounds like the guild for you, check us out at shadow-wow.enjin.com or contact the Co-GMs Alec#2922 and NevNev#2669 for more info!

      See you in Antorus!
