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I also realize you posted this a long time ago and I missed it - quite likely your gear dilemma is now out of date.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 everyone,
      Im interested in the general achievable uptime of BoS, since I neither have the legendary belt, nor the T19 P4 boni, I can only make it to ~55 seconds with Hungering Rune Weapon + Horn, and I feel like Im doing something wrong here, because the second Breath wont have those 2 runeweapon charges and I can only get it to ~20-25 sec, while the third one goes to ~40 sec again.
      I have a better chest (Kara chest)+trinket and shoulder, but the 20% increased proc chance for howling blast sounds to good to pass up, but at the same time Im making the mistake of trying to not waste HB procs, which results in RP loss overall.
      Whats the uptime for those who have the belt, ring and t19 4p bonus?
       
      normal 3 3 2 3 2 3 2 build
      doing fine with the normal obliterate build, but got tired of it and wanted to try breath.

      I love mogging. To my knowledge, these are all original. I'm sharing cause I love finding cool mogs to spark my imagination and push the boundaries of what I've made. You'll notice I have favorite pieces of gear that I re-use in a number of these. As far as I know these are all blood elf death knight obtainable. I have completed almost every set you see here. I'm currently digging frost...

      I have one of every class so I'll eventually have a video up for them all. I won't be sharing what each piece is. You are of course welcome to remake them yourself, I've just found that discovering the pieces and trying to see which ones fit really help devolop mog sense. If that's what you're looking for, this video should be fun!

      I will NOT be using BoS in 7.1.5...  why?
      http://www.wowhead.com/item=132459/perseverance-of-the-ebon-martyr
      Build:
      http://www.wowhead.com/talent-calc/death-knight/frost/cj7z
      Basically with the combination of Gathering Storm (extended RW) and fitting more Rime into that time period I'm hoping that my M+ hybrid spec will remain competitive and the sims thus far seem to support the theory.
      If you have the helm too, grats! and look forward to the major increase in it's power with Freezing Fog +30% and Tier 19 based around more Rime and more RP from Rime we should see many viable builds popping up on logs. **Stay with FP for now until you have T19 x 2 - see updated build link ^^
      Why not BoS and Hungering? ... well, I'm looking for big Rime crits and don't fancy the long CD to manage. I also want to remain powerful in M+ which should be the case with this build... I'm pretty sure I can become more useful with Winter is Coming + extended RW... stunning mobs for the whole of PoF uptime.
      Obliteration will be used to maximise rune spam for Gathering Storm.
      Lets hear your thoughts?

      So, i'm lvl 866 crit - castigator - soul reaper. Crit 27%, haste 18%, mastery 29%.  Draugr, Girdle of the Everlasting King and Sephuz's Secret. I simc at 305k dps single target. When i switch to CS - necrosis - dark arbiter, i simc at 298k dps. But my gear is crit-heavy low-mastery and i've no Deadliest coil traits yet, so i wonder if mastery build is really better now. But icy and noxxic still suggest crit-build. Does anyone have the possibility and gear to simc two of this builds with the same ilvl gear. Please share.
