Help on Tanking Trinket

Sign in to follow this

I have now, 4 trinkets that I am conflicted on using as they all seem to have decent stats and usages/passives. I am mainly tanking mythic dungeons, although our guild does normal EN but I have no problem there.

 

What do you think would be the best 2 to use in general?

 

I have the following:

Goblet of Nightmarish Ichor

 

What do y'all think?

if you can post your armory so you can look at your stats we can help you more, at the moment i'm saying orb and talisman from the combo of shields and absorbs, but we need your stats to get a better justification. The goblet is kind of last place, its a very meager versatility proc so probably won't recommend that one. Actually even without armory i'm going to say orb and talisman, from the strong secondary stat gains to the shield/absorb procs.

Yeah without the armory its tough.

 

But generally speaking, ive been running multiple trinket combos depending on what im doing.  For example, if you are pushing tough content, I'd go orb and talisman, for the survivability and defensive use cooldowns.

If you are On a heroic daily speed run, or WQing, id throw on the Orb and the goblet.

Orb of Torment is not a good choice for blood dk. You obviously already have a lot of self healing. What you want to do, is to reduce the damage spikes as much as possible. Between these 4... I would say Shard and Talisman (trinket from the eye is not even worth mentioning), although i would bonus roll like a madman for Phantasmal Echo from dragons on EN and switch Shard for it asap. Echo is your BiS. Not only does it have your by far most important stat which is haste, it also has an insane passive effect. The versatility on the Talisman doesn't look very good, but the effect on the other hand is great (especially for DKs since we don't have good dmg reduction cds) so it should be fine to keep it.

I don't see why the Orb is a "bad blood dk trinket".  Everywhere you go, Haste is the #1 stat.  Plus its easy to macro the orb heal to vampiric blood, increasing that affect.

Plus, he has only 15% haste as is, not using it would be a disaster!

I also dont see how a strength trinket would help smooth out damage more than more HS's and DSs courtesy of haste.

First of all, we have to take into consideration the fact that he is going to do mostly mythic dungs, where is as much dangerous trash packs as bosses (if not more).

It sure is true that haste is taken over any other stat, but there is more to trinkets than stats only. After using VB, together with few DSs and the work of a healer, you are hardly in any danger and if you are, 50% leech on one specific target won't help much (most probably it will simply overheal you).

15% haste is a fair point though, since it is nowhere NEAR the ideal and because of this single fact, the orb may be worth to consider.

Strength does not smooth damage, but increasing tanks dps is also a way to go for mythic dungs so its not pointless. The effect on the other hand is pretty good for both trash packs AND bosses (since it last as long as 30 sec). I also said it's not ideal and he should switch it with something better as soon as possible. It's just that i think it should work better for mythics than the orb, from my personal experience.

P.S.

Forgeting about trinkets for a sec, you should focus on stats on the rest of your gear  more than its ilvl. Sadly (or not), 5-10 ilvl difference between two items means close to nothing these days, if the seemingly weaker piece of gear has stats that suit you better (which in case of blood dk would be something along the lines of haste>mastery>=crit>versa)

Ok you agree he takes Orb and ill agree he takes the Shard. Deal. 2 min cooldown is very nice.

Id also suggest him throwing 10% of that mastery into haste as well.  2% mastery is 2 more DS's per minute.

Thank you for the input, yes I have slowly come to realize that all of this higher level gear doesn't have as much haste as I'd like.

You may honestly just want to que up some randoms and experiment with what feels right to you. Of course we can theorize mathematically what would be best, however, everyone plays a bit different and the general feel and individual performance can really alter what is best for you. So, I think you have great feedback so far, from here you just need to play around and see what feels right :D

      Hi,
      I have a question: For the ascendance / gambler build the haste stat is on top of the priority list. Our trinket priority list shows that a static mastery stat increase via a trinket is higher on the priority than a static haste increase.
      How come? 
      Regards, Enqua

      I recently obtained several high item level trinkets for resto, but since healing isn't supported on simcraft I have no way of telling what to use when.
      I have a 930 Amalgam's Seventh Spine, a 910 The Deceiver's Grand Design, a 905 Sea Star of the Depthmother, and a 910 Bloom of New Growth
      I'm currently using the grand design and sea star, but am wondering if any of the others are better than the star.
       
      I also have a question about ele trinkets, specifically at what number of targets I should swap my 930 Tarnished Sentinel Medallion for my 920 Spectral Thurible? My second ele trinket is a 895 Whispers in the Dark, which as far as I can tell should always be used.

      Hey all,
      most likely something similar has already been asked but still I thought it cant hurt to make my own post.
      Basically I am a Blood DK (https://worldofwarcraft.com/de-de/character/malganis/deathadan) and I am wondering which trinkets I should use.
      Right now I am wearing a Feverish Carapace (Goroth, iLvl 900) and the Reliquary of the Damned (Desolate Host, iLvl 925).
      Yet I recently acquired a Darkmoon Trinket Immortality iLvl 900 and I am unsure of which trinket to replace. Any Ideas?
      I know the Goroth trinket is technically better but I am unsure as the reliquary provides 4k Stam.
       
      any help appreciated

      Hey there! 
      Storm of the Badlands is a new but active guild looking for more members! 
      If you are new back to Legion, grinding rep and world quests, join us as we have levelers or max levels that are willing to help. We are looking for active people, who aren't wanting any big commitments. Being social still means you can join in mythics and other guild runs when you are online!
      We currently do mythic (keystones) and old achievement runs, and are looking for more members interested in raiding casually. Our members are able to raid with a friendly guild as pugs for more serious raiding, without the commitment.
      We will perhaps raid properly once we are all up to speed with content and have enough willing members~

      We are looking for friendly, social and active people. Our guild bank is well stocked with mats, consumables and for some, guild repairs. Please join us if you are interested :) Message me in-game "Nellina-Twilight's Hammer" in the evenings for more info!
       
      TL;DR: recruiting social people, for mythics and casual raids or just for fun.
