WoD Predictions?

Recommended Posts

Ok, this is basically just a desperate attempt to get some more life to the DK section, plus im at work on a Saturday and its a boring-me-to-death kind of a day so I decided to post some thoughts for the community to mutilate.

 

Basically, given what information is available at the moment, how do you expect DKs to behave in WoD?

 

 

I'm mostly brainstorming the secondaries here.

 

 

Blood

Given the recent Attunement implementation of Multistrike for Blood, I'd expect our selfheals and by extent our shields to have the Multistrike ability. This would lead me to expect the top survival stats to be Multistrike and Mastery for some killer shields.

 

I'd assume this would be the way to go at least in the first tiers or in the beginnings of a given tier.

 

When we start outgearing the content and going for more damage I don't know how it will turn out. Mastery will increase damage and Multistrike will still Multistrike but then theres also the crit and through that, parry. I'd expect this to be determined later when the tuning process starts to go further and we start knowing the value of each stat per point. This ofc affects the first part about survivability too.

 

TL;DR: I believe our go-to stats would be MS and Mastery.

 

 

Frost

Again I'm using the current Attunement info as a basis, which for Frost is Haste. Also I've almost exclusively played 2H, so this will be on that weapon choice.

 

I think 2H will keep their core gameplay of capitalising on KM procs for Obliterate. I expect to be stacking haste for dem melee swings for more KM.

 

Seeing how our Mastery doesn't affect our number 1 damage source, and the guaranteed crits from KM, I'd expect the second priority secondary to be Multistrike and hope it procs on a KM'd Obliterate.

 

From there on in I'm a little clueless again. Do we value crit as highly as we do now (even if it doesnt affect KM'd Obliterates) or would we try to further bolster the hard hitters (those KM'd Obliterates) by having Versatility next in line?

 

TL;DR: I believe the stat prio would be roughly Haste > MS > Versatility = Crit > Mastery

 

 

Brainstorm! I need thoughts to read.

You left out unholy :(

 

Frankly I think with the change to diseases unholy is going to be the go to spec. With diseases getting boosted, unholy having stronger diseases already, then a lvl 90+ skill improved diseases I think festerblight is going to be a choo choo train of devastation. Even then lets factor in necrotic plague. Necrotic plague + unholy diseases boosts = potential awesomeness. 

 

I'm calling it now, in WLoD unholy is going to be the go to pve spec :D

I left out unholy cos i have no experience with the spec :(

 

I hope it doesn't go to a single spec being too much ahead of the rest. I've tried to have unholy as my offspec, but i didn't really ever feel at home with it. As DPS is only my offspec and I do like 2H frost very much, I hope it'll be within the same ballpark dps range with the rest.

      Who we are:
      The Shadow Legion is an early evening raiding guild. Our goal is to try and clear the current content (Cutting Edge) as fast as we can and maintain a friendly and positive atmosphere.
      We are a group of friends who enjoy playing together no matter what the content is. Our guys come from a hardcore raiding background dating all the way to TBC days. We know we can push the hardest content if we set our minds to it.
      After a long hiatus from mythic raiding we are rebuilding our mythic roster to effectively start clearing mythic Ny'alotha. We currently have a very solid core group of players who have been together for a few years now. We are looking to fill our ranks with other like minded players with a background in mythic raiding and the attitude of improving themselves and the group as a whole.
      We are currently 12/12HC and 5/12M looking to continue mythic progress.
      Raiding times:
      Wednesday: 17:30 - 20:00
      Sunday: 17:30 - 20:00
      Monday 17:30 - 20:00
      All times are Server time.
      Times may be extended or an extra raid added during early progression if the group is willing to push harder.
      We are currently trying to recruit mages as prio, but slots are open for anyone if they wish to apply.
      What we expect from our raiders:
      Attendance: We have a very chill raiding schedule, which is why we expect our raiders to have as close to a 100% attendance ratio as possible. We understand emergencies but if you cannot maintain close to perfect attendance then it will quickly become an issue due to time constraints.
      Proficiency: We expect our raiders to be proficient with their classes and are always trying to improve. Whether it be by working on gear or going through your logs to find ways to improve, we will try our best to help where we can.
      Communication: Headsets and a working mic are a must. You do not have to be talking all the time but being able to provide information quickly during a pull is a huge benefit.
      Dedication: You need to have a positive attitude towards raiding and progressing. Understand that sometimes it takes time and effort to get some bosses down. We need players who are dedicated to achieve our common goal and maintain that competitive spark to push further where we can.
      Feel free to get in touch with us if you have any more questions or wish to join us.

      Critical Experiment is based on the Horde side of Draenor - est 2007. We are a late night raiding guild. We are looking for mature players with good knowledge of their class and role within a raid environment.
      We raid after the usual hours (22.00-00.00 server time sometimes to 00:30) 2 days per week ( Thursday and Sunday). We are mature players who have other commitments at 'normal' raid times, so we take the opportunity to get together and play at a later hour.
      What you can expect to get from us?
      * We aim to clear all content atleast on Heroic difficulty. When we can, on top of that we try getting some Mythic kills too.
      * A relaxed but firm raiding atmosphere.
      * A group of skilled raiders who enjoy seeking progression in PvE raiding.
      * A friendly home. Our members are sociable players and enjoy raiding old content, doing challenge mode, achievement runs and alts runs wherever possible. As such, a raiders friends/family are welcome in CE

      * A high level of skill and sensible raiding. Know your role, class and the encounters.
      * Punctuality - Showing up for raids in good time and being well prepared with flasks, food buffs, etc (though supplied by gb better be safe then sorry).
      * Be active on the Guild forums. Engage in tactics discussion and socialise with the Guild.
      * Able to attend minimum 2/3 of raids scheduled raids per week (If not, we will remove your raider status or fail your trial if accepted to CE; progress night attendance is really important for the core)

      The way to enhance Frost Death Knight leveling and then update it in the very start and up into the greatest levels in brief phrases? Opt for the very best gift on every level you obtain so as to find out and use best. Look at these Frost Death Knight abilities and highlight the ones that you have to have on your desk whilst trimming the enthusiast.
      Level 56 - Cold Heart. Level 57 - Horn of Winter, Runic Attenuation. Level 58 - pick one of 3 because they have exactly the identical part in leveling: Passing's Reach, Asphyxiate, Blinding Sleet. Level 60 - Frozen Pulse, Froscythe. Level 75 - Wraith Walk. Level 90 - Frostwyrm's Fury, Gathering Storm. Level 100 - Breath of Sindragosa. You are welcome to add some corrections!
