8 posts in this topic

T15 Blood 2P Bonus - Reduces the cooldown of your spell_deathknight_runetap.jpgRune Tap ability by 10 sec and removes its Rune cost.

T15 Blood 4P Bonus - Your ability_deathknight_boneshield.jpgBone Shield ability grants you 15 Runic Power each time one of its charges is consumed.

T15 DPS 2P Bonus - Your attacks have a chance to raise the spirit of a fallen Zandalari as your Death Knight minion for 15 sec.

T15 DPS 4P Bonus - Your Soul Reaper (ability_deathknight_soulreaper.jpgFrost / ability_deathknight_soulreaper.jpgUnholy) ability now deals additional Shadow damage to targets below 45% instead of below 35%. Additionally, inv_sword_122.jpgKilling Machine now also increases the critical strike chance of Soul Reaper.

Is it me or does the t15 4 set seem to be geared more for frost? Unholy naturally does increased shadow damage, so that part is nice, but does unholy have more crit than frost?

Unholy's mastery and frost's KM are balanced very closely for the 4-set, showing up as about a 2% damage increase for both.

Any idea is the Blood´s 4-set bonus worth getting or should one just get 2-set and go for non-tier items?

2 set then non tier items. The 4pc is just not worth it, especially when you factor in just how many time you can AMS for full RP this tier.

I don't even like the 2pc for blood. It's worth a maximum of about 3k hps. Last tier when I was self healing for 30k, I thought that was amazing, because it would be a 10% boost to our self healing. but now that I'm 522+ and working on heroic progression I'm doing 50-70k hps on most fights. 3k hps doesn't seem like such a big deal anymore.

The 2pc isn't game breaking by any means, but if used right it can be more than just its hps. As blood we are supposed to be timing CDs and Death Strike for burst, either having a CD in place to prevent the burst or a DS ready to recover from the burst, and a free 10% heal can be though of as a 10% burst reduction. If you use Rune Tap right after a burst that did 40% of your hp, it effectively can be though of as only doing 30%, and you probably would need to DS after a 40% but maybe not after a 30% burst. depends on a lot of things, but the anti-burst potential is there.

Plus, rune tap being free means more B runes for BB/HS/SR, which is a slight dmg increase.

      Hey guys, I have all 6 tier items (heroic, some WF). My hands are 895, but got a 905 item from mythic chrono.
      Using
      ( Pawn: v1: "Blood": Class=DeathKnight, Spec=Blood, CritRating=4.57, HasteRating=7.57, MasteryRating=3.07, Versatility=6.07, Strength=9.07, Stamina=12.07 )
      (Bad I know, got the numbers from Noxxic, but just swapped mastery and crit around. Matches the balanced priority, been working for me so far lol). Not a bleeding edge raider.
      Current setup

      Proposed setup

       
      Did multiple AMR sims with both setups, and averaged it, and each time 4pc comes out a little ahead. Using Krosus as setup. 

      I'm thinking it;s the versatility on the tier hands that is making the difference, not so much the 25% chance at a rune?
      Thoughts, opinions, Thanks!

      Hey everyone, 
      I just got Kiljaeden trinket  as my third legendary and I am questionning which legendary to use.
      Legendaries i have: Perseverance (helm), Seal of necrofantasia, Kiljaeden trinket
      Trinket i have: CoF 875, Memento 865, Arcano crystal 860, Claw of the scorpid 900, kiljaeden 940
       
      When I sim my DK with new trinket, the CoF 875 and the 900 ring Ii get around 10k more dps (~593k single raid target) whereas when i sim my character with necrofantasia + CoF + claw of scorpid 900, i get around 582-583k.
       
      What i'm thinking is that Kiljaeden might be better in M+ whereas Necrofantasia might be better in Raids, but i'm really not sure ... any help is greatly appreciated ;)
       
      also, if i should use Necrofantasia, is CoF 875 + claw of the scorpid 900 the "ideal" trinket combo i could use with the trinkets i have in my posession ?

      Thank you very much for any insight!

      Hey all! I need some help with my dps, Im 884 ilvl and only do 350-400k dps overall on fights in Nighthold, even on dummy. 
      I just changed to BoS build so I have to practice, but it feels imossible to get more out of him. Im a bit off at stats and havent got legendary belt, ring or set bonus. Atm I have 25% Crit but only 15% haste :-/ Simcraft says 325 dps... about 360 with Glacial advance build.
      Here is a log from Krosus
