Hi, Im having shoulders with 925 ilevel, mastery and verstality, but also I do have shoulders 915 ilevel, haste and avoidance.
Whats better, lower item level but with best stats (haste/avoidance), or higher item level but with mastery and versa ??
In overall, is it better to aim for "best" stats or just push item level first?
So, I'm currently maining Blood DK and that's the spec that I've gotten my 4 legends on. I do occasionally use UH and was wondering which of my legends would be most effective for it. Just a foreword, all of the gear that the legends replace is about equal; all 915-920 and don't cause any major stat changes so its not like using one legend over another causes me to use a bad piece. I have Soul of the Deathlord, which is the one I use most on UH, and I have Shackles of Bryndaor, Archimonde's Hatred Reborn, and Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus. Does the Shackles passive work on UH, if so, could that be a better boost for Val'kyr[Dark Arbiter Talent] (b/c you can cycle more RP)? Other than that I'm just wondering which out weighs the other, STR or the secondaries?

I figured I'd do a Part 2 of this since I've managed to move from having never tanked before to now I can't get enough of it.
I've noticed a few things and wanted as much input as I can get. What has struck me so far is the lack of healers running PUGs at the lvl 60-ish area. It takes forever to get a PUG group together and I haven't been able to keep a healer with us more than 1 run through. I've made some DPS friends through PUGs which is pretty cool, but what is up with the healers???
The second thing is how my damage relates to a few other classes at about the same level. I'm currently lvl 67. I'm able to hold aggro nearly most of the time. I have some PUG members than have a pet with taunt or something but for the most part I am good to go. What I will see are Death Knights and some Warlock/Mages that seem to be doing crazy damage while only being a level or 2 higher than I am. Is that normal or am I undergeared? I haven't quite downloaded a damage meter just yet but from watching the health bar on the enemies I've noticed that those 2 can do some big damage by themselves! So is it a gear issue with me, is it just the nature of their class at that level or are they over-geared with extra goodies figuring their main has helped pay for their current state of their equipment? And with that, any recommendations or just hang in there until I get much higher level when better equipment appears? I have Heirloom for my chest, back, shoulders, weapon and trinkets. I haven't really found any quest gear or dungeon drops that is better that what I have now.
I can't say Thank You enough to everybody that posted advice and encouragement in my first thread. It was very helpful and I've taken a lot of it to heart and put it to work. I have had so much fun doing this...as like most things in life you are leery of...once you try it you only regret NOT doing it sooner.
Hello DKs. (I dunno why it does this annoying thing with the background)
I have been playing around with different WeakAuras for a few weeks now and i finally found something that works really well for me personally in PvP.
Both BGs and arena.
I have a small screen to work with, so i would try to fit as much info in as i could, on as little space as possible, without having any info there that i didnt need.
I also found out... With all the pressure and fast thinking happening in pvp, you dont have time to look all over your screen to see important CDs or hp points or whatever.
So again, i've found a way to track everything i need to know, without moving my eyes to the edges of the screen.
I am by no means any expert on WA and my designs are pretty basic, for some they might look abit cluttered, but everything that i link here, is quite easy to change.
Deletes single groups u dont want, or change colours/sounds anyway u like it.
I really hope you people enjoy what i have made and i hope some of you can use it for yourself.
It's the first time i ever do post stuff like this... Now, i'll explain what the different auras do:
Pretty basic. It will show a stun icon, with a small timer underneath.
If you dont like the timer, u can delete the group and u can even change the texture to a progress texture, then the bar would deplete as the stun timer went on.
I do prefer the timer underneath cause of diminishing returns, it often doesnt stun the full 5 sec.
CC and Disruption cooldowns:
Mind freeze (interrupt) and Death grip on the same height
Asphyxiate and Gnaw (ghoul stun) on the same height.
These icon will only if the given ability is on cooldown. It will not if it is ready
Often times there are so many icons on your screen counting down, so i made this to quickly find out what CC is ready.
Apocalypse - Dark Transformation - Soul Reaper cooldowns:
I put these in the same group, cause they are what i use basically everytime they are of CD (if im in range of my target ofc)
They contribute to the very important sustained damage of unholy and it was important for me to track them close to each other.
They will both bounce in and yellow text will appear when an ability is ready - Something i made so i never miss or forget one of these as i am focusing my target.
Festering wound tracker:
Obviously one of the most important things to keep track of for unholy.
I've tried with different icons and progress bars, but fact is that, even though they look prettier and more neath, they aren't as practical.
So i made a simple, yet very effective tracker for it.
A flashing purple wheel appears if you are in combat and no wound is active on your target.
It bounces and turns red if there are 1-2 stack active, cause this is where you should apply more debuff before detonating.
Standard purple colour will appear with 3-5 stacks, cause with this amount you are free to detonate your wounds and not having to reapply new ones or worring about there being to many. (Because you are obvioulsy free to Festering strike if you are at like 3 stacks)
It will flash purple/white when there are 6-8 stacks, cause here you need to detanote and not reapply anymore festering strikes, atleast until it reaches below six.
Offensive burst/go for kill/swap target cooldowns:
I didnt put "Blighted rune weapon" in with the other sustain damage CDs because i feel even though it is good for sustained damage, it does not need to be used of cd.
It works very well if you want to surprise swap to a different targets.
There are stacks for BRW and timer for your gargoyle - Again, a very simple but very effective design, that tells you everything you need to know. These will also disappear when they are ready.
Scourge of worlds proc:
Very, very important debuff to track. Changes your priority alot of times in your rotation for the next 5-6 secs.
Even though it could work with the normal icon and the design is cool, it is again. Not practical for pvp, cause u need ONLY to see useful info.
So i made it very simple with a standard timer, so u never miss the debuff and it doesnt clutter your screen.
Sudden doom proc:
These can ofcourse be changed to any texture you might like better.
1 bar appears with 1 proc - 2 bars appears with 2 procs.
Again for practical use - Minimize the amount of numbers and bars on your screen with this.
I sometimes forget to reapply this in stressed situations. I made this aura to make sure it never happens.
A white flashing icon shows when it is not active, a simple sound plays when it runs out and a white bar shows the progress.
Really hope you guys enjoy it and will give me some feedback!
I love playing around with WeakAuras and just as i have had alot of help from others designs i really hope someone can use mine.
