I think Desecrated Ground might break the stun of Gouge. This ability is cast by He Softfoot in the Fallen Protectors encounter in case you didnt turn around fast enough.

this is not verified, just a speculation.

Icebound definitely does, so the glyph may be useful in this case.

 

Gorefiend's does NOT work on the blobs on Immurseus. Death Grip, Remorseless Winter, Chains of Ice and Chillblains all work perfetly on those adds.

 

Tank add in the solo phase on Norushen is easily killable with DRW. Taking the Asphxyate talent can help with interupts.

 

The adds that attack the NPC's on Galarakas are best dealth with via Asphxyate. This can be used while they are moving and prevents them from even begining to cast their fixate, where as Death Grip does not cancel their charge, only prolongs it.

Immerseus:

I haven't tested Chilblains, but I can confirm that Chains do work.

 

Norushen:

I'm also not sure but I think I avoided an application of Corruption when soaking a Manifestation with AMS. (If someone can confirm, would be great)'

Not sure if this is very useful info, but Manifestations can be Deathgripped.

spell_shadow_antimagicshell.jpgAnti-Magic Shell can prevent the application of sha_ability_rogue_bloodyeye.jpgSelf Doubt in the Norushen encounter.

 

My Raid was able to keep Mark of Anguish on me the entire of the Desperate Measures phase also. Required smart use of my defensives though.

 

(I think that's the stacking tank debuff right?)

 

Confirmed this in a raid last night.

Immerseus

Remorseless Winter, Glyphed Death and Decay and Chains of Ice can and should be used to slow/stun the sha puddles.

 

Remorseless Winter presents a advantage over Gorefiend Gasp (it work in the puddles too), beacause it AOE slows and stun the adds, making pretty easy to kill a group of them.

 

Death Grip is very usefull too and should be used on sha puddles.

Galakras

Make sure to deathgrip the bonecrushers off the friendly npcs when they cast fracture. Time it so you grip after they have started channeling fracture, otherwise they will just run back and redo it. When the king is targed by This in melee range just run a bit out and grip him to prevent him from dying.

Also remorseless winter works on most mobs in the waves.

I recommend speccing into Asphyxiate for one more Fracture interrupt in case DG is on cooldown. There's no use for the minor mobility increase from Death's Advance anyways.

 

Also as Hrungne pointed out, make sure they've started the cast before DGing. As far as I noticed the stun can be cast before they start their cast of Fracture.

If you're soaking a Crawler Mine try stacking up as much Blood Shield as you can for it. You'll barely take any damage from it.

 So i am in a small progession guild and i know for the first boss: AMS will almost completely absorb corrosive blast. Gorefiend's grasp will grip in the dps puddles not the healing ones just to clean that little misundstanding up as well chillblains does slow the dps puddles.

 

 On the second boss AMS will help with the instant posion ability of the rogue if u are tanking him plus if u use dancing rune weapon the parry will help will help with taking less damage also. It sucks but u cant grip any of the adds so just taunting and sliencing them to get them to move around is all u got.

 

 On Norshen u can grip the big adds around i liked to pull them slightly out of melee range of the boss to ensure that i pick the orb up. Another cool thing i found is if u the big add is out of grip range u could possibly gorefiend's grasp them to the boss then grip them alway my pally off tank hates the fact i can move them so much lol.

 

 On the sha of pride i have found that u can gorefiend's grasp all the self reflections if it helps for range to dps while not taking any damage and aoeing the boss at the same time. Also if u have roiling blood and glpyh of pestlience u can dot all the adds due to the increased range it helps for alittle bit more dps well i hope i have helped someone and i have not yet gotten to any other bosses so not sure wat u can do on them but i will post when i know ty for letting me post.

Hey smile.png Could you please make a paragraph for each boss? It'd be much much easier to read tongue.png

just wanted to confirm that Chillbains, chains, death drip, remorseless winter, gorefiend's grasp, glyphed Death and Decay all work on puddles in immerseus.

Remorse is probably better than gorefiend's since gorefiends only pulls them together not back, and it does not slow.

Remorseless winter can be used to stun a stacked group of adds but also to slow adds when they are more spread out. since remorse is simply a stacking debuff application, you can simply walk past a puddle and still get 2-3 stacks on it.

another for immerseus,

anti magic shell and zone both help alot with soaking corrosive blast. AMS can also be used to remove the damage component for Swirl (note that you will still get knockback)

-AMS seems to work great for Flame Vents

-Stacking blood shield before jumping on the mines is a good idea, but given that its physical damage, you could also try glyphing IBF, and using that more frequently. 

 

Kor'kron Dark Shaman 

-If you get caught in the path of Foul Stream, AMS is a great way to mitigate some damage. 

-Foul Slimes can be slowed using Chill Blains as well as glyphed Death and Decay. This helps with kiting the slimes as ranged take them down.

-If you have to walk through the Ashen Wall for some reason, IBF is great help. 

 

These tricks worked for me, hope it helps.

If you want a significant boost on the Miasma shield from the get go, summon a ghoul/army pre pull and death pact it right when the Miasma is applied.

I think Desecrated Ground might break the stun of Gouge. This ability is cast by He Softfoot in the Fallen Protectors encounter in case you didnt turn around fast enough.

this is not verified, just a speculation.

This does not work, using it just before Gouge, or during the "stun". I think it's cause it's not a stun but "incapitate". Not quite sure why maybe but it's definetly not working either way.

Icebound Fortitude I haven't tried before Gouge, but during the "stun" it doesn't work as well.

Ok, That's very good to know. I kinda assumed it would work since incapitation is loss of control right?

 

I also found that both Remorseless winter and Gorefiends grasp are quite usefull on Galakras, Aphyscate is also advised for the Tidal Shamans

I'd save Asphyxiate for Bonecrushers' Fracture if they happen to go on King Wrynn aka too close for Death Grip. There's usually enough Interrupts and Stuns on the shamans from the raid anyways since those are focused by everyone first.

On blackfuse, you get a lot of vengeance for about 10 seconds whenever an add dies (conveyor belt or shredder).  Good time for a dodge-on-use trinket (which riposte will convert to crit rating) and DRW to do even more damage with all that attack power.  Not to mention that both those things will help you survive the hits and need less healing tongue.png.  EDIT: Probably better to use DRW on shredders, to kill them faster.  e.g. during death from above.  Less stress on healers is always good.  My fellow tank (bear druid) was generally killing his shredders faster than I was.

 

 Blackfuse was the first fight in SoO normal10 where my tank cloak procced usefully (i.e. not during a wipe).

 

 

 Thok is fun as a blood DK.  Since I always time death strike to keep a big blood shield rolling while I'm not tanking, I took very little damage from the physical aoe.  And of course avoided losing bones from my bone shield on fully-absorbed damage - probably had 90% uptime.  WoL doesn't account for the bone shield I had before the pull :/  Going into a kite phase with one of the tank DoTs ticking on me, I sometimes had to death strike the boss or the jailer to keep my HP up, or even lichborne heal while healers scattered.  Going to miss 2T15 free Rune Taps when I replace it.  Didn't realize how good that was until I got used to using it.  I need to get my hands on glyph of regenerative magic to reduce the cooldown on AMS, would have been quite nice.

 

 Only bad thing as a DK: his roar will interrupt your army of the dead channel.  At least being shadow-locked isn't a big deal.  So it's not really usable as a defensive CD once damage starts to ramp up, best just get it out early-ish sometime before taunting.  (I was tanking 2nd every phase, druid was going first as well as holding the jailers).  Could have gotten some more dps from grabbing some vengeance and riposte uptime, and seeing how close we were to all being dead when the boss fell over in the final kite phase...

      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

      Hello,
      First of all, sorry for my english. :)
      I know there are tons of the same topics, but they didn’t help me much.
      I want start to play Legion and i can’t decide which one DK or Druid. My main is usualy tank but, I want to play also like decent dps. I think UDK/BD both are on same lvl ?
      I like both GD and BDK, I don’t know how they stand right now I know GD got some nerf and BDK buff.
      But in general is still GB best tank and what about BDK is he decent or crappy.
      Also there is one big question – 7.3 I read about GD T21 and have very bad set bonus.
      What do you think about DK bonuses. When bone shield is consumed the cooldown of DRW is reduced by 3s, 4p When DRW fades, rune regeneration is increased by 15% for 10 sec. I know it’s just PTR but still.
      I will be glad for every opinion.
      Thanks

      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:
      ---------------------------------

      https://pastebin.com/h0sVPDgC
      Asphyxiate stun:
      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.

      https://pastebin.com/ZqX24uCV
      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.

      https://pastebin.com/Z1tQtqXY
      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.

      https://pastebin.com/kvehS4qi
      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.

      https://pastebin.com/deeYe8T2
      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.

      https://pastebin.com/6NsWPd0R
      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.

      https://pastebin.com/BUkZmUMp
      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.

      https://pastebin.com/WBTRpnEZ
      Virulent plague:
      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.

      Something's been bugging me recently - why is mastery more valuable to an Unholy DK than versatility?  It seems to me that versatility should be superior because it increases ALL damage (shadow & physical) while mastery only increases shadow damage.  Does 1% of mastery scale differently than 1% of versatility in some way?  I assume I am misunderstanding something here about how versatility works.
