BDK Health Check Please!

9 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

Just after a gear health check. Cleared H EN, and currently 2/3 H TOV.

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/khazgoroth/Stiix/advanced

Crit - 19%
Haste - 29% (42% max stacks)
Mastery - 33%
Parry - 22%
Vers - 6% (14% with Icor)

I've mainly being going for Crit/Haste gear. 33 ranks in wep.
1 Legendary, Shackles.

Any input/advice would be appreciated!

With the amount of parry you have, stacking crit isnt as survivability efficient as versatility. (Although haste/crit is dps good for M+) If you have any ilvl viable haste/versatility gear, id give that a shot. Especially over any crit or mastery gear.

Compare logs and let me know.

Your looking healthier than I am 

:)

How are you finding it? Anything in particular that feels a bit weak and maybe we can advise towards plugging that?

Hey sorry for delay,

Reason for the post was, browsing the forums and it seems to be, once you hit a certain level, you swap to versatility. If that's the case, I just look for haste/versa instead? Do I still gem/chant/food for haste? Or switch that to Versa as well?

Haste;
Critical Strike >= Versatility;   //swap these 2?
Mastery.

Not to not answer your query but its complicated.

 

Some prefer the control of more haste = more decisions you can make due to more runes/regen

Some prefer more versa, less incoming damage, more self healing. 

Pick which one suits you and the content your doing. 

I prefer a mix of both as pure haste leaves me squishy sometimes, cant heal back if your dead, while too much versa makes me feel to slow in my rotation. 

 

Hope that that helps 

:)

My "pure tanking" build is:

20/20 crit/parry

31 haste

25 mastery

13 versa

It provides:

16+6.5= 22.5% mitigation on all attacks

16+8+6.5= 30.5% mit on 20% of attacks.

and a nice 13% boost to DS and HS healing.

The haste allows runes to be coming up quick for more HS's and used with a tanking rotation (using DS at 80% health) you're pretty much able to tank a mythic without a healer.

Im the build i have a phantasm echo and with VB, its a massive get out of jail free card.

fun well rounded build.

Thats a pretty sweet build Sniz, I will link mine later. Think I am logged out in frosty gear.

I dont rate the echo as highly, probably as I spend more time below 50% health due to less versa perhaps.  Will have to do some more checking.

I logged as frost as well lol

But from what I recall, my echo is the tankiest trinket I have with a nice haste boost.  I tried the Ichor (which askmrrobot likes) but with 25% uncontrollable uptime, its not always there when you need it.  I read the echo is not working properly, however.

So perhaps the echo isnt the "best" choice, but for me, i like the the auto-proc and it provides some "oh shit" protection when you need to concentrate on re-stabalizing your health.

I havent put it through the rigor of a log audit but I certainly feel tankier. Especially in dungeon content where death is slower.  It certainly may not be the best option when you're raid tanking as the raw healing may not be enough comparitively to others.

My basics

20 crit/parry

29  haste (with food and before Bone shield buff)

24 mastery

13 versa

3 Dodge

 

Thats with 1 dps trinket (unstable arconocrystal) and phantasmal echo for the haste buff.

Will test it out some later. 

Was running with more crit for dps and about 5% versa. Will see if the extra 76% versa makes a difference. 

Nice to get 13% more healing from DS and more damage, pity its only 6.5% less incoming damage.

      Does anyone have issue where a ton of versatility gear is dropping?
      In the effort to increase my item level, so I can do heroics (i know I'm late to the game), all the higher level gear that drops has versatility, do BM hunters need versatility now or is this just bad luck?

      I usually sim my characters to get the best possible results. I enjoy the process quite a lot and since I reached 120, I wanted to find out the best build of the spec. (Note, I didn't want to find out what to play, but rather how my own build fares in comarison.) I rarely mind a 1-2% difference. If it goes above 2%, I really mind a change. What this thread is about is mainly to bring something in the attention of those who help making the class guides, especially the talent choices. To my surprise, I was awed to find out that certain talents outperform previous "Standard" choices in the endgame, probably due to the stat squish.

      The Frost go-to build (top dps) would probably be along the lines of <Icy Talons / Cold Heart - Runic Attenuation - Frozen Pulse - Gathering Storm - Breath of Sindragosa>. What I found out primarily was that after the removal of legendaries, Cold Heart severely underperforms at most given situations resulting in a major dps drop due to the low mastery. Gathering Storm also suffers from the same problem and most of the times, Frostwyrm's Fury is better overall. The biggest surprise of them all, however, was that Inexorable Assault overperforms quite a lot, and is the first reason why I made the topic. I then started simming with the above in mind and I came across a build that some would not consider on par with top dog builds around the meta, which is the use of Horn of Winter which overperforms both its other two options when using the Breath build. Talent Sim can be seen here. Another intresting thing, which I loved, was that the 2nd best build uses Obliteration as a lvl 100 talent and no other build surpassed it (Other than the first one, obviously). So, I encourage frost players out there to give their other, less common talents a try. To the class guide author(s), I believe that the two "underdog" talents will earn their spot in the class guides.

      Thank you for your time reading this.

      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      Hello all! I figured i'd make this thread to get some up to date information on the AOE rotation for unholy.  Currently i'm 935 ilvl, and I run Incstructor's fourth lesson and Soul. (For lack of a better option.) However it is my understanding that these two legendaries make for the strongest aoe rotation. Is this true?

       That is my first question. My second is what is the priority for aoe when running these two. Is it to wait for defile to drop, then festering wound a target a couple times, then Scourge Strike? Or is the priority to just put Wounds on then pop them asap, dropping the defile whenever it's available. Typically I wait for defile before I start building Wounds, but given the soul and the extra talent, i suspect it's better to just aoe without Defile if it's unavailable or perhaps just better to rarely spend runes on defile? Curious as to your thoughts!
