Alrighty!

 

Does anyone have a challenge mode set collected for Blood DK?

 

Thought I'd ask what people are rolling with before starting to find out piece by piece :P

Does the CD reduction on Vial of Living Corruption work in challenge modes?

 

 

I've been trying to google this stuff, but no luck so far, so any input is highly appreciated. :)

I haven't done a challenge mode in a while, but Vial scales with ilvl, so I'm fairly certain it would be nerfed into oblivion in challenge modes.

 

BiS is pretty much any piece with the most sockets you can get in that slot: chest and legs with 3 sockets, shoulders with 2 sockets, rings with 1 socket, etc.

 

I haven't tried an avoidance build, and I'm not sure if other DK's are using it, but mastery would most likely be best. the goal in challenge modes is to be able to survive large trash pulls because the difference between gold and server first gold is in how fast you can clear trash.

Simple gold is what I'm aiming for, so realm tops aren't that much of a concern :D

 

Yeah, I've ran into the importance of sockets. Another thing being that hitcaps remain so high ilvl hit pieces for those would be nice.

 

I know most legendaries don't work in challenges, but I'm not 100% on the cape. The proc probably won't work, but I would assume its still a good choice stats wise plus it has a socket. Could someone confirm this?

That is what I have been reading in many of the guides too. The cloak proc and LMG proc doesn't work, but the stats on the cloak are well itemized that it should be worth keeping it on. 

 

About the hit cap, I thought similar to what happens in proving grounds, if you are hit / exp capped outside, you should be hit / exp capped inside too. Is this not true for challenge modes?

Your hit/exp caps remain the same, but they shift around your other secondaries to compensate. The Vial, IIRC, is about 1% damage as healing at 463 ilvl. Keep in mind you'll also be doing significantly less damage as well. That said, I've been using it for CMs on my bear and it's been fine, though I really don't have any other trinkets on that toon.

Well, as was mentioned earlier, you'd want the gear with most gem slots and a hell ton of mastery, hit and exp. Get 7,5 hit and exp then run full mastery following that.

 

Also, i'd like to mention, earlier someone said get shoulders with 2 gem slots, there's actually a 3 gem slot shoulder dropping from garrosh norm / hc, which would be slightly better for challange mode.

Yeah, I've been eyeing those Garrosh shoulders, but I'm prepared to go with a 2slot version since I've yet to see those drop. :D

I've only seen them drop once, and at a point where we had no plate users in our grp at that time since we normally only got 2 tanks which uses plate(warr and dk) and due to vacation we had to drop down to using someone else in the guild and went With 2 none plate users for that week =D Talk about that RNG ehh?

Eh, I wouldn't even call it RNG. Those shoulders have the lowest droprate of anything on his loot table. You should basically never expect to get them :P

      Hey all,
      most likely something similar has already been asked but still I thought it cant hurt to make my own post.
      Basically I am a Blood DK (https://worldofwarcraft.com/de-de/character/malganis/deathadan) and I am wondering which trinkets I should use.
      Right now I am wearing a Feverish Carapace (Goroth, iLvl 900) and the Reliquary of the Damned (Desolate Host, iLvl 925).
      Yet I recently acquired a Darkmoon Trinket Immortality iLvl 900 and I am unsure of which trinket to replace. Any Ideas?
      I know the Goroth trinket is technically better but I am unsure as the reliquary provides 4k Stam.
       
      any help appreciated

      Hello,
      First of all, sorry for my english. :)
      I know there are tons of the same topics, but they didn’t help me much.
      I want start to play Legion and i can’t decide which one DK or Druid. My main is usualy tank but, I want to play also like decent dps. I think UDK/BD both are on same lvl ?
      I like both GD and BDK, I don’t know how they stand right now I know GD got some nerf and BDK buff.
      But in general is still GB best tank and what about BDK is he decent or crappy.
      Also there is one big question – 7.3 I read about GD T21 and have very bad set bonus.
      What do you think about DK bonuses. When bone shield is consumed the cooldown of DRW is reduced by 3s, 4p When DRW fades, rune regeneration is increased by 15% for 10 sec. I know it’s just PTR but still.
      I will be glad for every opinion.
      Thanks

      Hello again,
      So today I looted a ring in the Mythic+ weekly chest, awful stats but great iLvl improvement (885->920). So the question is: at what point is it sane to sacrifice +4% in Haste to get ~100k more HP?
      Thanks.

      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
