Hey guys, im about to play Wow again after a half year break and i want to start as Warrior or as Death Knight and i cant decide between both.

I pretty much know how they work but my question is : which works better/more simple in Mythic+ and eventually heroic raiding (im not interested in mythic ToS).

Hi Cope,

I've played several different tanks in previous xpacs.  This is really more of a question of what your raid consists of.  If your guild healers aren't great, the DK is a powerful choice.  If they are talented, the warrior is usually the best dps output which is actually viable in timed encounters.

I've not raided at all this xpac but most top end guilds run warriors because they have the teams to support such.  Recognizing your team's faults and strengths helps in tank choice.  If you have no team and no guild, I find warriors to be the most agile and capable as lone wolf tanks in most any situation.  They do require a unique understanding of encounters and their upkeep/uptime for mitigation can get tiresome in your rotations.

After reading your post, I realized its entirely possible you may be thinking of playing these as dps classes.  In that case, I have no input as I don't play either class in that way.

Honestly really just depends on whether you enjoy mobility.

DK's main downside is the lack of mobility from the class.  You only have wraith form and walking.  Warrior has charge/leap/intervene (if prot).

DK has more self-sustainability as tank, and can solo lots of older content.

As far as DPS goes, both are highly wanted in M+ due to their AoE stuns and high burst AoE damage (Fury Warrior and Frost Death Knight).  DK also has the benefit of battlerez, but that won't be the difference between getting in a group or not.

 

Try the playstyles out on template characters and see which you like more.  Both are viable.

thanks for those fast answers, Ive started a Warrior because of the superiority in mobility and ive reached ø-ilvl of 895 in 5 days, im very happy with that decision so far but i will test dk aswell (loved to play that class back in wotlk)

and yeah i should have clarified that. I want to play those classes as DPS and only occaisonally as Tank (only when it is really nessesary)

      Hello, 
      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
       
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
       
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
       
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
       
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!
