Blood Dk looking for more Dps/Aggro

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.

 

Armory:

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

      I had some great help with my Fury build from this forum, and have recently attempted to try Arms. 
       
      My guild did a full normal ToS run today, and i captured the logs. I seem to be parsing OK, but it felt clunky.
       
      Here are the logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/mfLjRTWXrkb4ZxQY/#boss=-2&difficulty=0&source=20
      Armory:  https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/nagrand/çleâvâgé
       
      Any pointers would be appreciated.

      I've been playing a hunter for as long as I've been playing this game.  And for the first time in raiding, I feel like I am not doing my best and I cannot figure out why. I look at second by second rotations of top parsing hunters. In the past I was the one helping others out and writing small guides on forums...now I'm the one asking for help. 
      Here is a link to Goroth Mythic (my hunter's name is Mezäsu):
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/KjRvcMqbYGrp16Bt#fight=3
      I am very open to criticism and any help anyone has to offer.
      I tried going into the Discord to ask for help there but was not able to get a word in (as the helpers were busy with other people). Hoping I may have better luck here.

      Hola my lovely Warriors,
       
      im pretty new to the game and spend a lot of time checking for possible guides etc. for the arms.
      Right now im sitting at 913 GS. Pls find here the link to my stats: https://worldofwarcraft.com/de-de/character/blackhand/drakmeister
      I would love if you could help me on the following points:
      1.) Which talents are the best? I started with Lvl45 talent -> First one  and lvl 75 talent-> first one.
      I met some people who told me if i go for single target dmg like TOS is most likely then i should switch to "REND" and "Might oif titan"....
      Right now i have not found the best choices for me. Looking forward to hear your comments.
       
      2.) My stats: See on the link above my Stats. I'm kind of unable to reach more mastery to increase my damage. What do you guys suggest?
      3.) The f.king Rotation / Priority on my skills:
      i guess im doing a lot lot lot of mistakes when it comes to use my skills. Right now i play as follows:
       
      i open with Charge, followed by rend and then CS. After this im using Battle cry and Bladestorm.
      Then it comes to the usual rotation and i use CS followed by MS and filled with slam until i getr a proc for my CS. If i get it i use it and use MS after.
      i try to have rend always on the boss. ( i'm not able to hold iut because of boss movement and other stuff).
       
      YOu guys think this use of skills is ok or do you have any changes for me? am i using my priorities right? (Using CS when i get a proc followed by MS??)
      Right now my DPS at any boss is way too low and i have to improve.
       
      Please let me know you honest comments and help me to get a better arms!! :)
       
      Thank you very much in advance. Looking forward to your comments,
       
      Regards,
      Drakmeister
       
      @EDIT: Let me know if you need any additional informations!
