Gear Check - 907ilvl

8 posts in this topic

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 HaemostasisSkullflower's Haemostasis and Service of GorefiendService 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 HaftRoyal Dagger Haft and Animated ExoskeletonAnimated Exoskeleton as my trinkets, but could replace Royal Dagger Haft with Fang of TichondriusFang 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 BryndaorShackles of Bryndaor and Archimonde's Hatred RebornArchimonde'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.

The leech gain is rather low compared to the value of your royal dagger. While i applause a balanced strategy in general as a tank your goal is stay alive and keep crap off of your buddies so I think sticking with royal dagger is fine. You are correct, archimondes is rather poop nuggets I don't recommend it. As far as your raid set up, you are looking pretty good, I might want a bit more crit but because you have skullflowers and gorefiend you are fine. I like that combo because I feel it covers both ends of our mitigation. So you are reducing the CD on VB which is awesome and skullflowers is just a strong legendary for blood in general. 

So for raiding your are set up perfectly. Looking at your heroic/mythic setup your stats are good but I'm assuming this is without your legendary items equipped? Depending on how far down the mythic plus rabbit hole you go, you would definetly want to start using your legendaries in the mythic plus dungeons. Specifically because certain affixes are just cancer and blood has issues with them. The abilities of the legendaries out weigh the extra couple percentages in crit or haste. Secondary stats values were diminished in one of the legion patches.

TLDR you are doing great. I like purgatory across the board in all situations. Depending on fights composition in raiding/mythic plus dungeon you may want to swap gorefiends for shackles but that's more of a really situational thing. You are doing very well and the only thing I would say if i understood your message right is 100% incorporate your legendarys into mythic plus running. Beyond that you looking pretty solid :D

For mythic plus, I find the bracers and shoulders work very well together, more healing and more dps more often from DS. With the dps increase to DS this will be even better in 7.2.5. Add in a DMC Immortality for the physical dps reduction bit and see how your gear goes. The other trinket a random stat stick or a decent dps trinket and your laughing.

Sorry bracers changed, and to clear the gear up a bit. The gems in Rethu's are all 150 haste. I'm not a huge mythic+ fan, highest I've done is 12 I think. But that's the stats with all legendaries equipped.

So, If i'm assuming the left is for raid and the right is for dungeons than you look pretty solid :D

Only thing with Rethu is the healing is much lower compared to gorefiends, its better than nothing of course, but is inferior in comparison. Otherwise I like the set ups for their intended purposes. For raiding yes we would in theory like higher stats somewhere in the middle between the two choices, however, the defensive power of your legendaries is too great to give up imo. You did denote going after a more in the middle build which is fine, for tanking though I always lean a bit more conservatively. If you feel you can stay alive well, you can start trying to increase deeps but at the end of they day your job is to stay alive. 

So, both optimized setups look good, the heroic one could use tweaking for high end mythic plus but you noted you don't really do mythic plus, sooooo

you are good to go bro :D

Awesome, just what I wanted to hear, thanks man!

P.S Rethus is more for the speed boost lol, the healing is a bonus. Do enough self healing with everything else.

On mythic plus for many of the modifiers I equip the legendary pants, because being able to move my fat arse is really a bigger buff than anything else the legendary's can offer >_<

So had a few upgrades from Heroic ToS, I don't know if simming in AMR is reliable or not, but this set I have lower healing required per second, higher TMI and higher NPS, but I lose so much haste. Mind you, at 10 stacks, its at 30% ish.

Opinions? Same Leggos as before, Skullflower and Gorefiend.

Should note I have 2 piece of ToS tier.

      Hi, Im having shoulders with 925 ilevel, mastery and verstality, but also I do have shoulders 915 ilevel, haste and avoidance.

      Whats better, lower item level but with best stats (haste/avoidance), or higher item level but with mastery and versa ?? 

      In overall, is it better to aim for "best" stats or just push item level first?

      So, I'm currently maining Blood DK and that's the spec that I've gotten my 4 legends on. I do occasionally use UH and was wondering which of my legends would be most effective for it. Just a foreword, all of the gear that the legends replace is about equal; all 915-920 and don't cause any major stat changes so its not like using one legend over another causes me to use a bad piece. I have Soul of the Deathlord, which is the one I use most on UH, and I have  Shackles of Bryndaor, Archimonde's Hatred Reborn, and Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus. Does the Shackles passive work on UH, if so, could that be a better boost for Val'kyr[Dark Arbiter Talent] (b/c you can cycle more RP)? Other than that I'm just wondering which out weighs the other, STR or the secondaries?
      Edit: and just in case it makes a difference, my talent build is; http://www.wowhead.com/talent-calc/death-knight/unholy/c75z

      I figured I'd do a Part 2 of this since I've managed to move from having never tanked before to now I can't get enough of it. 
      I've noticed a few things and wanted as much input as I can get. What has struck me so far is the lack of healers running PUGs at the lvl 60-ish area. It takes forever to get a PUG group together and I haven't been able to keep a healer with us more than 1 run through. I've made some DPS friends through PUGs which is pretty cool, but what is up with the healers???
      The second thing is how my damage relates to a few other classes at about the same level. I'm currently lvl 67. I'm able to hold aggro nearly most of the time. I have some PUG members than have a pet with taunt or something but for the most part I am good to go. What I will see are Death Knights and some Warlock/Mages that seem to be doing crazy damage while only being a level or 2 higher than I am. Is that normal or am I undergeared? I haven't quite downloaded a damage meter just yet but from watching the health bar on the enemies I've noticed that those 2 can do some big damage by themselves! So is it a gear issue with me, is it just the nature of their class at that level or are they over-geared with extra goodies figuring their main has helped pay for their current state of their equipment? And with that, any recommendations or just hang in there until I get much higher level when better equipment appears? I have Heirloom for my chest, back, shoulders, weapon and trinkets. I haven't really found any quest gear or dungeon drops that is better that what I have now.
      I can't say Thank You enough to everybody that posted advice and encouragement in my first thread. It was very helpful and I've taken a lot of it to heart and put it to work. I have had so much fun doing this...as like most things in life you are leery of...once you try it you only regret NOT doing it sooner.

      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
