Immerseus:

Protectors:

Norushen:

Sha of Pride:

  • you should grip the big add spawning in the back of the room to your group
  • Use spell_shadow_demonicempathy.jpgDeath's Advance, if on prison duty
  • plenty of magic damage to soak with spell_shadow_antimagicshell.jpgAnti-Magic Shell

Galakras:

Iron Juggernaut:

Dark Shamans:

  • Slowing green adds: Use inv_glyph_majordeathknight.jpgGlyph of Death and Decay for additional slow/damage
  • You can try to spread your diseases to the adds altough it is kind of risky. Use spell_shadow_antimagicshell.jpgAnti-Magic Shell and be quick wink.png
  • If still having problems with the adds spell_frost_wisp.jpgChilblains can be chosen (ideal for frost, for unholy only if you manage to spread your diseases, see point above). But this reduces your mobility by not having spell_shadow_demonicempathy.jpgDeath's Advance, and you have to move a lot on this fight

Nazgrim:

  • ability_deathknight_asphixiate.jpgAsphyxiate is very useful for stunning adds, although you lose some of your mobility
  • ability_deathknight_aoedeathgrip.jpgGorefiend's Grasp is useful for quickly grouping the adds for AoE, or ability_deathknight_remorselesswinters2.Remorseless Winter for stunning. Especially towards the end, since there will be more adds present

Malkorok:

Spoils of Pandaria:

Thok:

Siegecrafter Blackfuse:

  • spell_shadow_antimagicshell.jpgAnti-Magic Shell will be your friend. You will get a lot of runic power by soaking the unavoidable ability_siege_engineer_overload.jpgOverload and prevent a lot of damage. Also useful if you have troubles dodging ability_siege_engineer_purification_beamMatter Purification Beam on the conveyor belt. Also keep in mind both glyphs. inv_glyph_majordeathknight.jpgGlyph of Anti-Magic Shell helps in soaking ability_siege_engineer_overload.jpgOverloadinv_glyph_majordeathknight.jpgGlyph of Regenerative Magic should be useful, if you need AMS on the belt.
  • Being on the belt, it is much easier to just run (instead of jump) into the tubes at the end of the belt. spell_shadow_demonicempathy.jpgDeath's Advance should give you enough flexibility
  • Taking spell_shadow_contagion.jpgUnholy Blight as a talent choice is advisable, especially if being on belt business due to more frequent disease applications needed

/edit: Oh, thought you would copy that and replace the spells with nice links. wink.png

Since you just linked it, I edited in the spells myself and corrected some typos smile.png

Thanks for editing. I don't have the time to copy/paste/edit for all the threads, so I decided that for T16, I'd just link to the contributions. It's better than eventually falling behind and not being motivated anymore to keep things updated.

Malkorok

 

Pop army pre-pull and when the Ancient Miasma is applied, immediately Death Pact to get a great boost to the shield right from the start.

Just putting in that, using spell_holy_consumemagic.jpgDark Simulacrum on Wavebinder Kardris in the Dark Shaman encounter will steal spell_frost_frostshock.jpgFroststorm Bolt. This scales with frost DK mastery and can crit in excess of 1m damage easily. Using the glyph is recommended to lower the CD.

Sorry for the delay, but I finally managed to find some time to update the opening thread (got married recently tongue.png)

For DPS and Tanking.

 

Iron Juggernaut (HC):

- You can use Anti-Magic Zone on the Shock Pulse to reduce damage taken to raid. Preferably used on the first.

- You can use Anti-Magic Shell with glyph to compleetly soak a Shock Pulse

- Recommended to use Lichborne + Anit Magic Shell (glyphed) on last Shock Pulse to quickly heal yourself and run back to the boss. (Only works if you don't use Anti-Magic Zone)

 

Kor'kron Dark Shaman (HC):

-You can use Anti-Magic Zone to further reduce the damage taken from Falling Ash.

 

Malkorok (HC) 10-man:

- Soak the puddles with AMS up for instant full runic power, use Anti-Magic Shell glyph.

 

Thok (HC):

- Help out the tank on the 5th stack of the Frost breath with Anti-Magic Zone to reduce the damage taken from the breath right before freezing.

- If you're tanking you can compleetly soak a Poison/Fire/Frost breath with Anti-Magic Shell (Must be using the anti-magic shell glyph) you'll be able to cheese a stack of the tank debuff and sometimes even resetting the stacks if timed perfectly.

- When the tank gets frozen use Howling Blast/Death Coil to get him out faster.

 

Siegecrafter HC:

-Use AMZ during the empowered magnet phase to reduce dmg taken, preferably ontop of the tanks/melee to help out the healers.

-Use AMZ to reduce the damage taken from the shockpulse from the Shredder.

 

Klaxxi HC:

- Aim can be soaked compleetly with Purgatory, make sure to have a pet sac and healthstone ready to heal you back up.

-AMZ is extreemly usefull to help reduce damage taken by the fiery edge debuff.

-Anti Magic Shell will absorb a whole fiery edge debuff if you shift presence to blood together with Shifting presence glyph and anti magic shell glyph.

 

 

Garrosh Normal:

-The Whirling Corruption can be compleetly soaked with AMS if you're using the glyph and shit pressence.

      Hey all! I need some help with my dps, Im 884 ilvl and only do 350-400k dps overall on fights in Nighthold, even on dummy. 
      I just changed to BoS build so I have to practice, but it feels imossible to get more out of him. Im a bit off at stats and havent got legendary belt, ring or set bonus. Atm I have 25% Crit but only 15% haste :-/ Simcraft says 325 dps... about 360 with Glacial advance build.
      Here is a log from Krosus

      Here is my Armory

      Hey guys,

      I'd appreciate if you could have a look at my trinket sims. I'm a little bit confused about the results, so maybe you could tell me if it seems correct?

      For BoS people say strength > all, but SC reccommends me 2 non strength trinkets. 
      For ST it's Faulty Countermeasure (900) and Unstable Arcanocrystal (865).
      For MT Horn of Valor (865) and Unstable Arcanocrystal (865).

      None of them has strength, could that really be the right choice for BoS?
      I also have Convergence of Fates (875), which is not reccommended as top choice, but i know Simcraft undervalues it a little bit - at least that's what i've heard.

      I run mostly M+ and only 1 day per week Nighthold, so my thoughts were to use the following combinations:
      For M+ Arcanocrystal (865) / Countermeasure (900) with tyrannical affix and Arcanocrystal (865) / Horn (865) for other trash affixes.
      For raiding i thought Countermeasure (900) / CoF (875) would be best, because CoF should be more valuable in longer fights.

      What do you think?

      (Results are in german... but i hope most of the trinket names are still understandable. Currently equipped is FC/IA.)

      Thanks in advance!

      Hey all. 
      I've been beating my head against the wall in regards to my DPS.

      I'm very ashamed actually. In the past I have pulled *What I thought was very good numbers* only to see that my DPS is in constant decline. I understand most people are going Frost, but I have invested so much time into Unholy, to switch now would only increase my agitation. I'm no longer a clicker, that's a plus! 
      I have my two piece currently. Currently on Heroic content and I'm needing some advice. Rotation is pretty common with what's suggested. We have a few DK's in our raid group, most of them Frost with another Unholy, who COMPLETELY blows me out of the water. Maybe it's because I'm stuck with Eye Of Command and on multi-add boss fights, it's useless. Help me fellow DK's. I would SO appreciate it.

      Hey folks,
      I play frost since TBC and since i got my hands on my 3rd legendary and 2 part t19 bonus i struggle with my current build. Maybe you can enlight me :). Here we go:
      I am at an avg gs of 888 with the following stats (unbuffed):
      30% crit
      20% haste
      31% mastery
      3% versatility
      I have the Bracers, cape and belt legendarys at my proposal, currently running with bracers + belt.
      I used to play the "normal" OBRA Build (Icy talons, Frozen Pulse, Runic Attenuation and Glacial Advance)  and did quite well. Since i got my 2 part t19 bonus i am somewhat ressource overcapped and/or GCD limited. Thats why i started tinkering around with my talents.
      Currently i play around with:
      Murderous Efficiency
      Gathering Storm
      Freezing Fog

      Instead of the "normal" OBRA build. I am still not sure if this build yields better dps or not for me. Depending on proc luck i am still overcapped with ressources some times as well as ressource starved at other times cuz of the missing Runic Attenuation talent.
       
      What do you guys think? I tried the BoS build as well but i absolutely HATE its "playstyle". can't get used to that 2 min cooldown. Most of the time I use it in a raid i get some nasty debuff and have to run -> dropping BoS xD. In mythic+ i don't like it as well because it falls off after one pack and takes 2-3 packs until its ready again...
       
      And the last question:
      would you prefere a 880 Chest + 880 trinket (that egg thing with the poor haste proc) over Nightbane Chest at 875 alongside with the eye of command at 860?
