Hey

 

I am looking to expand my blood dk tanking to new lengths and are now looking to raise my dps, since it is very low and alot lower then what ive seen other blood dks are doing.

 

I am usually spamming all buttons when I feel it won't affect my survival, but however I am doing, my dps is low. I have tried going from a mastery heavy build to a avoidance heavy build but keeping my mastery at 200% buffed.

 

My aggro issue is on malkorok heroic (we are still progressing but nontheless), where our druid tank is taking aggro over me constantly (by just dpsing) and since my dps is lower(i assume that's the reason) the stacks fucks up and sometimes he goes into the blood rage phase with stacks.

Logs for last raid:

Would appreciate any help with raising dps, while still ofcourse not being a dying tank :)

I've been on both sides of threat issues on Malkorok, even when I outdps the other tank by a good margin I still sometimes can lose threat on that fight in particular. It's mostly because the boss hits much harder than most the previous bosses, so there is a lot more vengeance. For that fight you may want to glyph dancing rune weapon for extra threat and use it on tank swaps. Whoever is off tanking should also be focused on taunting oozes. If he isn't, that will give you some extra room for threat also. after a few seconds his vengeance will drop and you shouldn't have any more threat problems.

 

For some general tank dps advice:

- your disease uptime is all over the place. some fights you're around 50% other fights it's 90%+. since you're using rolling blood you should try to keep your disease uptime as high as possible, even if there's a lot of switching. On Iron Juggernaut you had a 51% uptime and diseases account for 15.2% of your dps, On Nazgrim you had a 60% uptime and they were for 19.6% of your dps. (by the way diseases don't count in defensive stance, so keep them on the boss). On shamans your disease uptime was 93.5% and they accounted for 23.8% of your total damage. that's a 8% difference between those fights just by using bloodboil and/or outbreak 4-5 more times to refresh diseases.

 

- You rarely use soul reaper. It won't help you with threat on Malkorok, but it will give you a decent dps boost for the last 35% of bosses. It's also great to use on adds that will die before it goes off, because you'll get a nice haste boost.

 

Those are the only big things I can see. Malkorok is an annoying fight for tank threat, and Thokk will be even worse when you get there. The other tank is going to have to learn to watch his threat meter and not pull off you after a switch when he still has high vengeance.

Thanks for the feedback.

 

Yea, i know i need to up the usage of soul reaper, easy to forget ^^ will have to use an addon or something i guess. and the desease uptime is wierd, even tho on IJ we're staying in the back on second phase it shouldn't be that low, i am usually using blood boil to refresh deseases, jeez im even doing it before, love that ability, gonna miss it tons next expac. 

 

Will definitely check my desease uptime in the future, and will tell the other tank to watch his threat, i am usually trying to taunt adds when i can on that phase so i miss constantly attacking him, but yeah will make that note.

Another thing you can try, is when you taunt the boss use Dancing rune weapon (glyph it) and that'll increase your threat by 100% Really helps me when I'm fighting a druid that is built for max DPS output. 

 

Cheers, Hope this helps smile.png

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 4/8M Uldir   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:   Ranged DPS:
      High: Warlock
      Medium: Mage, S.Priest, Boomkin
      1 Healer:
      High: MW Monk
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience and be a minimum iLvl of 370. You need to have the best gear available to you, (BoE, Crafted) with gems and top end enchants. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!
