I was wondering if there were any theorycrafters or DK enthusiasts interested in helping me pick out some heroic brf weapons, and to pick which would be best for me.
I've asked every Death Knight i've ran into for advice, and they've been flat out stumped. I'm torn between a heroic warforged burning blade, versus a heroic burning blade with a socket (50 multi). The exchange in stats are (Socketed: -29.31 dps, -16 str, -25 stam, -8 mastery, +38 multi)(Warforged: +29.31 dps, +16 str, +25 stam, +8 mastery, -38 multi). Below is a link to my personal armory.
Hi. new rouge here and i have some questions about combat gearing in relation to the weapons now i know that the icy-veins page for combat tells you to use slower weapons but I am wanting to know why that is. I trust it works but I like to understand my class and why it works. Any info is great thanks!!
My progression guild's 'off' tank and I are both warriors, and have had varying luck when it comes to getting our new weapons. He's currently using Tanar's, and I have Kro's fist.
The question came up about which weapon would be 'better' from the prot standpoint. Obviously, Tanar's is leagues above when it comes to fury, but as our stat priority stands now, both have a useful stat, and a rather undesireable. Mastery is our first choice, which goes to Kro's, with Crit as our second, which would be the sword.
On the flip side, stat priorities on IV show Haste > Multi, which would make me assume the mace is best. That said, the multistrike, however small, from the sword at least procs blood craze. A pathetically small boon, but a boon none the less. I can imagine the extra haste working wonders for fights like Beast - my AoE bleeds usually do about 45% of my damage, even WITH ravager and failstorm.
Bottom line is this - when it comes to BRF, which is the better weapon? We're at Heroic level right now, so obviously mythic cleaver from butcher crushes the competition, but we've not the numbers to get in there.
Sword, or Mace? And if both, which situations does one shine above the other?
i am fury war and i am a little unlucky on getting 1h weapons, so for 1h weapons i have 1 645ilvl and 1 640ilvl 1h weapons. last night i killed with my guild Imperator Mar'gok on normal and was lucky enought to get 2 times the 2h weapon (655 ilvl).
but overall i have 656ilvl (with the 1h) and 657ilvl (with the 2h) so with this ilvl i should be using 1h weapons for single-targets and the 2h for aoe.
is it worth doing macros to equip the 2h weapons to use the aoe skills and macros to equip the 1h weapons to use single target skills?

So i wanted to ask the community about some blood dk questions, as i am new to the whole tanking bizz, as i usually heal.
Death knight Runeforging.
What runeforge should i be using? i see StoneSkin Gargoyle mostly, Although fallen crusader and swordshattering seem to be popular.
Plague leech i love, but without roiling blood i seem to have problems with holding aggro, Am i doing something wrong or is it just better in most situations to use roiling blood?
Lichborne Vs Anti Magic Shell.
Anti magic shell seems good for alot of fights (immersius) however lichborne seems a good way to go, if you need purgatory it usually seems like its a wipe anyway. Which one is best?
Out Break glyph seems almost mandatory with plague leech, if its viable (see above) what would be a macro to use for it? since you would need immediate re-issuing of the diseases.
I wanted this because it seems like i cannot find straight answers to these questions, (i did finally find macros for Death pact that worked correctly and lichborne). hopefully this thread will help not only myself, but the other new dks.
