Where to go with my blood dk

Hey there! First post here!


Anyhows, I've just gone back to my blood dk after a quick break and then a venture into frost dk for dps, but then my raid team needed a tank to start on heroics and I jumped in.


My ilvl is 555 with 1 dps piece, but it seems fine for heroics so far!


What I'm asking is how you'd adjust my gear to suit heroic raiding (10 man)


We are doing galakras and hopefully juggernaut on monday, so I have a few days to prepare (They did protectors and norushen whilst I was ill).


This is my armory link.


I have sacrificed some mastery to parry, so I can cash in on the Riposte buff to increase my dps as a tank a bit. But going into 2 fights where survivability and control is higher prio for tanks than dps output, what would you recommend?

Parry reguardless of what ever fight the only fight that i would say u might need to go mastery is thok and MAYBE garrosh but you cna get away with pure parry on every fight in SoO i solo soak malk as parry and i plan on solo tanking thok as parry but honestly no fight is hard to live through honestly if you use your cds correctly. I've also been considering just going pure crit but it's not much of over all dps increase to be honest so I probably won't but I would go pure parry and reforge mastery when u alrdy have parry on the item cause you are lower ilvl and depending how fast you progress might be hard at 555 for some fight such at thok or solo soaking malk but you should be fine... as long as you know how to pop cds correctly :p 


Also GL on progression.

      4/11 - Mythic

      Fri - Optional fun run for alts/friends and family
      Currently accepting exceptional and positive players of any class for the Mythic progression.
      Melee: OPEN -- Desired: Rogue, Ret, DH, Fury, Feral Ranged: OPEN -- Desired: MM Hunter, Boomkin, Ele Sham Healer: OPEN -- Desired: Resto Druid Off-spec FLEX Tanks Defiance is a casual-core or semi hardcore guild that raids and runs Mythic+'s but we always try to find something to do every day of the week while hanging out together in Discord. We have done the top 100 thing in past expansions. We don't call it quits when content gets rough, we review our strat, adjust as needed and get back to it. With that being said, we want to make progress but we are more concerned with just enjoying the game and each other's company.
      We are not interested in the elitists and nobody likes a know it all, just have a positive attitude. We work to build an environment and community that players want to log into everyday and enjoy. Doing so helps prevent burnout so we can enjoy endgame content without all the stress most Mythic raid environments endure.
      Feel free to add our battletags to get in touch with us. We look forward to hearing from you!

      Hallo Abenteurer, Couchpotato's, Lerroooy's und Achievementsammler.
      Um nicht nur in den Hauptstädten Werbung zu machen und aktive Member für den Raidkader, Mythics und weiteres suchen, zähle ich erstmal auf was wir aktuell erreicht haben, zukünftig erreichen möchten und was uns wichtig ist.
      Mythic +
      Bei uns sind immer genug Leute am Start, um mit seinen Chars die Weekly Chest abzustauben
      Unsere Raidzeiten liegen auf Mittwoch und Sonntag von 20:00 - 22:30 Uhr, damit auch jeder für sein Berufsleben ausgeschlafen ist.
      Zurzeit haben wir in Antorus HC auf Farmstatus und equippen nach und nach unsere Twinks.
      Für den Mythicraid suchen wir noch engagierte Spieler für unseren Kader, da wir das ganze als feste Gruppe in Angriff nehmen wollen.
      Aktuell suchen wir Mages, Shadows, Eulen und Ele-Shamis für unseren Raidkader.
      Du solltest 945 GS und mind. 75 Traits in der Artefaktwaffe haben (für M+ können GS und Traits natürlich variieren - Twinks sind auch erlaubt und gern gesehen).
      Das Menschliche muss passen. Der beste Tank/DD/Heal bringt uns nichts, wenn er sozial inkompatibel ist.
      Aktivität und Interaktion mit anderen Gildenmembern wird gern gesehen.
      Wenn du 18+ bist, Discord hast und teamfähig bist, kannst du dich gerne auf Blackmoore bei Gringer, Pottzy oder Kraadarok melden und einfach losflüstern; Wir freuen uns von dir zu hören und zu lesen! :)
      Falls du uns da nicht antreffen solltest, adde uns über die BattleTags. Trau dich!

      <Fepix – Magtheridon> - Alliance  
      Sick of pugging, looking for heroic progression, wanting to get into the guild raiding scene or just want an active discord to have a laugh in? Fepix could be the guild for you! 
      Fepix is heroic raiding guild founded and run by a group of friends. Every Tier our main aim is to get curve and then to step into mythic and take down the earlier bosses there in a calm and casual environment. Although we always seek to progress and improve as players, we like to maintain a lightheartedness within our community. 
      We also hope to give guildies an introduction into guild raiding, or to just help them gear up in our weekly normal farm run.  
      Normal raiding: (20:00-23:00 realm time Friday) 
      Our normal runs have no requirements other than fairly relevant gear (910ish for normal antorus), the willingness to listen to and learn from the raid leader and the other experienced raiders there and a good sense of humor! Those that attend the normal runs have the ability to progress to the heroic team if they show the qualities we look for in a heroic raider. 
      Progression Raiding: (20:00-23:00 realm time Sunday and Monday) 
      For our Progression team, we look for:  
      Reliability - the ability to have high attendance to raids, to arrive promptly at raid time, and should something come up that would stop you attending, to let an officer know ahead of raid time. 
      Adaptability – the ability to learn from mechanical mistakes and to show a bit of initiative in encounters to make those small plays that go above the norm that could potentially aid in the raid's success. 
      A laid-back personality – the ability to remain calm when you make or others make mistakes.  
      An off spec – Although this isn't necessary, it will make you slightly more valuable to the raid if you can play an interchangeable role based on the attendance of that raid or the demands of the encounter. 
      We are always open to applications from heroic raiders, people wanting to get into the raiding scene for the first time or people just sick of pugging and wanting a community of people to do content with. 
      We are currently looking for an off tank and healer as a priority for when we look to start progressing mythic in the coming weeks. However this still means we are open to applications from all other specs and classes as well.
      We are hoping to bolster our raid team in preparation for BFA where we will continue with the same aims and system. 
      If you are interested in applying please message one of our recruiting officers on either discord or 
      Summerset (Raid Leader): Meep#2725 / Discord: Renkin#7628 
      Codeded: Novice#2211 / Discord: Chucknorris30#5520 
      'Big Daddy' Chris (Guild Master) : Syconix#2181 / Discord: Syconix#7498 
      If you feel like watching one of our raids, Chris streams our heroic runs on:   - Come down and say hey!

      Hello, I'm a friendly neighbor from the guild <Conspiracy Theory>. We are currently looking for raiders for H prog and Casual runs every
      Sat - 8-11 EST, Sun - 7-9:30/10 EST. We are a 9/11 H Guild looking for more members to fill it's ranks.
      We also are forming a secondary raiding team. We are looking for active players who will be on at least once/twice a week.
      Along with forming a Mythic dungeon team to help gear raiders for their retrospective raiding teams.
      We have a very lax community with serious raiders, Jokes and memes are to be had everyday. Conspiracy Theory is a very helpful community between helping newer players learn how to play their classes to running current content.   Server - Dalaran   Contact me via Bnet or Email

      -Chill Enviroment with a mind on Progression
