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.

      Hey there, looking for some common mistakes I might be making in my gear or dps rotation that I am just not seeing. You'd think it would be pretty basic but my dps has been all over the place recently. 

      I will be fighting kiljaeden (pretty standard) and have anywhere from 650-850dps average for the fight. It's gotten me kicked a couple times obviously despite being good on mechanics. I've reviewed several guides, made sure I am enchanted and gemmed... cannot figure it out. What am I doing wrong? (Yes low on meters for other fights as well though not always). 

      924 iLevel, wearing legendary belt and chest (dont have tier to wear shoulders and chest)

      67% Mastery (issue?) 
      24% Critical Strike
      29% Haste

      Opener: Blood Fury, Tome (trinket), Crow, Bestial Wrath, Dire Frenzy, KC, AspectotW, Titan's Thunder, CS, KC, DF...

      Repeat KC, CS, And cast DF whenever buff falls off or procs bonus. 

      Talent Build is:
      Cobra
      Frenzy
      Posthaste
      Bestial
      Int
      Crow
      Killer Cobra

      Helps, tips, advice welcome. 

      Are there common mistakes to rotation i might be making even if u dont see it here? Should i be working hard to gear swap? I am at a loss and it is getting frustrating. Thanks

      Hi guys, just the bi-annual gear check. On concordance 2.
      Currently 6/10M, 
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/khazgoroth/stiix
      That has me in what I call my heroic/mythic gear, combined with interrupts and the the interrupts from tremble before me, the speed and haste boost is nice.

      For raid gear, its a mix of M/H (always maintaining 4 set) tier with Skullflower's Haemostasis and Service of Gorefiend and ill swap out tremble for whatever is suited for the fight, and usually always go with purgatory.

      Now I do have Royal Dagger Haft and Animated Exoskeleton as my trinkets, but could replace Royal Dagger Haft with Fang of Tichondrius (yay or nay). To be honest, in Mythic, the dagger has saved my butt numerous times and I don't like the loss of crit I get if i equip fang.
      My other legendaries are Shackles of Bryndaor and Archimonde's Hatred Reborn (which i never use)
      My main question is, is what I'm doing a good strategy, does the effects from skullflower and gorefiend outway the pure stats of my heroic setup? Plus any suggestions from the wise would be awesome. I try and follow the "Balanced" gearing strategy.
      Regards, and thanks,
      Stiix.

      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!
