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

      CURRENTLY RECRUITING
      Tank ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BfA!
      Currently looking for a skilled and laid back Tank for the upcoming expansion.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL ULDIR*
      Below are our events the beginning weeks of BfA! All events start at 10pm CT.
      Week 1
      August 13th (Mon) - BfA Weekday Leveling Party! August 17th (Fri) - Leveling up in BfA Drinking Party August 19th (Sun) - Leveling up in BfA Non-Drinking Party Week 2
      August 24th & 26th (Fri/Sun) - Mandatory Mythic 0 to prep for Tier 1 *Schedule subject to changes.
