I prefer 2H... it's what I originally started out with in Wrath. 🙂 I never did care much for the dual-wielding business. But I'll swap out depending on which build I run at the time.

dual wield is better for pve for about 2-3 % dps. Personally i prefer 2 hand. Feels more satisyfying and 2hand is the better option if you are playing pvp too

This is not nearly enough, they should get an additional 10 % dmg buff and armor. Blood DKs are terribly designed and do nothing better than other tank except AMZ which will be nerfed beyond belief in 9.1

well, probably they dont want us to be the moster tank we used to be in older expansions, thats why is almost imposible that they give us a big buff...just little gifts like this one, and we are far to have a rework for the class.

I Just want to be on par with other tanks. I hate having to tell my dps friends to wait 5 seconds before blasting away because I need to bilder threat. I dont need to be a monster tank, its enough for me with some more damage and armor. I would prefer a rework ala shadowpriests (Marrowstrike) is *filtered*, but that wont happeb

Sadly you are right on the threat subject, i think we need more a rework on the talent tree, putting some abilities as baseline and removing the ones that are useless.

      We're back for week two of Sanctum Mythic, with many more guilds having downed a LOT more bosses (but still very few in the second part of the raid - only 60ish guilds actually got past Painsmith so far) and so we're going to take a look at both Mythic and Heroic again this week, still focusing primarily on Heroic.
      Important Note: In terms of Mythic stats, while they're not yet representative of the entire Sanctum of Domination raid, they do show some solid stats for bosses 1-5, which is where basically the entire playerbase is anyway in that difficulty. The early bosses are still dominating/"tainting" the numbers in Mythic though, so take that into consideration as well.
       
      Heroic Rankings
      We're starting with 95th percentile Heroic once more, as it's still the more accurate of the two difficulties for log stats. Things changed a lot here since last week as well, as the Moonkings are back on their throne after a long time sitting there in Nathria. But last week's other top specs are still here, as Arms and Arcane fill out the top 3 once more, and the biggest mover in the top is Feral, which jumps 7 spots to complete the top 5, right behind Subtlety which also hopped up a spot or two. Havoc and Assassination are also on the rise, while Elemental has fallen the most since last week and Fire remains in dead last. Windwalkers actually fall quite a bit here, in stark contrast to the Mythic rankings, while the second half of the chart hosts the same specs as last week.

      95th percentile Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
      The ever slower-moving all percentiles bracket has a swap in Rogues at the top, as Subtlety takes the crown, but the top 3 stays the same. However, Feral is coming up fast here as well, basically swapping places with Demonology, showing it is a very popular and effective pick among many players. Elemental is losing popularity here, same as in the top percentiles, while Outlaw is slowly digging its way out of the bottom.

      All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Mythic Rankings
      Affliction is still extremely strong on Mythic, mostly due to the earlier bosses very much favoring the spec, with Windwalkers coming pretty much out of nowhere as more bosses enter the mix, and the spec takes the lead. Arms reprises its Heroic role as a top spec here as well, so we know that's a very real stat, while Retribution and Fire also jump almost half the rankings to get into the top 10.

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      If the Mythic all percentiles chart is looking visually weird to you, you can thank those few Windwalkers that destroyed the top-end parses, as they're waay out ahead here, but even that crazy performance wasn't enough to clinch the No.1 spot. The rest of the rankings are just a big jumble, with Fire and Frost Dks very high, Shadow and Elemental at the bottom and more weirdness.

      As always, if you want even more info on a spec, you can check out our class guides here, or for even more data, head on over to Warcraft Logs.

      We have a really cool one to check out today, as two of not only the best players in the world talk about pretty much everything that happened during the Sanctum Race to World first!
      We have now World Champion Rogerbrown, Echo Co-CEO and Complexity-Limit GM and Raid Leader Max having a very candid and friendly talk about: the Shards of Domination and how they impacted the race; going through the raid and race, boss-by-boss, composition-by-composition; talking about most specs (Shadow Priest over-estimation at the start etc.); the way the very best players in the game anywhere can just sit on the bench for an entire raid due to their spec being not optimal; the crazy minute details on the final moments on Sylvanas; the optimal race duration; whether we'll see 1 or 2 more raids; and so, so much more.
      It's a long stream VoD, coming in at 5 and a half hours, but if you're at all interested in the race, it's an absolute must-watch!

      According to Jeff Hamilton, Senior System Designer on Warcraft, there's almost no work being done on World of Warcraft right now.  
      Due to the ongoing lawsuit, WoW development seems to have been temporarily impacted, which benefits nobody, not players, not the developers, or shareholders, according to Senior System Designer Jeff Hamilton.
      Placeholder for tweet 1419115702569472003 We are not sure at this time if this will delay Patch 9.2 or even 9.1.5, depending on what will be unveiled in the near future (likely at Gamescom).

      Here's some Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper, aka the Sylvanas bow-related news, as players have been receiving Heroic upgrade tokens after having it drop with a lower item level prior to the hotfix, as well a look at a very lucky guild.
      First things first, the issue that was hotfixed last week, which was causing the bow to drop at the Normal difficulty item level in both Heroic and Mythic, had many players receive a worse bow. According to Wowhead, tickets sent about that issue are now getting positive responses, with players actually receiving upgrade items for the appropriate difficulty they got the bow from! That's a really solid upgrade from 233 on Normal to 246 on Heroic, so if you've had this happen to you, make sure to make a support ticket!
      The other statistically interesting piece of news is that a guild actually managed to get three bow from one kill! As reported by otrew 3 out of their 4 Hunters got the bow on a Normal Sylvanas kill (and the 4th one wasn't too happy about it). And the kicker? The third bow wasn't even looted from the chest, but came in the mail later!

      We've seen some crazy low boss wipes and kills, but very few on this high a level, as Club Camel have downed Sylvanas Windrunner in the Sanctum of Domination Mythic and finished the Race to World First in overall 8th place and US 3rd... with only 1 player alive! Shmeezi basically soloed the final 0.1% or so and spared the guild possibly quite a few more pulls. Congrats!
