Thanks for posting.

They look just like what you'd expect entry-level set bonuses to be. It does not seem to me, at a glance, that they'd affect rotations very much.

I like the tank bonuses...lots of improved self-healing, because you know...DK's are pretty terrible in that department currently ;) I love tanking on my Death Knight...it's by far the most intricate and involved form of tanking. Using Death Strike correctly makes a good Death Knight even better and the set bonus will only enhance the difference between the know-hows and the know-how-nots.

The DPS bonuses are just improved throughput...pretty standard. Btw, Vlad, do you play a DK as your main?

I'm loving the blood bonuses. So pumped about the extra healing from DS. Can't wait!

Hey I am new to the forums so correct me if I am doing something wrong

I just got 2 tier 14 pieces from LFR (the Helm and the Shoulders) and I was wondering if the 2 piece set bonus is worth getting rid of my helm and my shoulder that I already have on (I have the Yi's least favourite helmet and the shoulders of Autumnlight)

Hey there!

The 2P set bonus for tanks, and for Blood Death Kinghts in this case, is not something as essential and easy to quantify as the DPS set bonuses.

You're looking at downgrading your stats in favour of getting a lower cooldown on Vampiric Blood - and I would argue that in general, this isn't worth doing. You could switch those pieces in for the bonus on any fight where you anticipate that you're going to need Vampiric Blood more often than it's normal cooldown, but that's about it.

I also realize you posted this a long time ago and I missed it - quite likely your gear dilemma is now out of date.

      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!

      Hey everyone, 
      I just got Kiljaeden trinket  as my third legendary and I am questionning which legendary to use.
      Legendaries i have: Perseverance (helm), Seal of necrofantasia, Kiljaeden trinket
      Trinket i have: CoF 875, Memento 865, Arcano crystal 860, Claw of the scorpid 900, kiljaeden 940
       
      When I sim my DK with new trinket, the CoF 875 and the 900 ring Ii get around 10k more dps (~593k single raid target) whereas when i sim my character with necrofantasia + CoF + claw of scorpid 900, i get around 582-583k.
       
      What i'm thinking is that Kiljaeden might be better in M+ whereas Necrofantasia might be better in Raids, but i'm really not sure ... any help is greatly appreciated ;)
       
      also, if i should use Necrofantasia, is CoF 875 + claw of the scorpid 900 the "ideal" trinket combo i could use with the trinkets i have in my posession ?

      Thank you very much for any insight!

      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
