WoD Predictions?

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.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: 
      Stjern#2802 or Azkey#21565

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Outlawed is currently recruiting for current content and looking to increase our raiding team as we move closer to the release of the new expansion.  We are based on Dreanor and are a Horde guild.
      Outlawed has been together for 12 months plus and consist of a mixture of UK, EU and South Africa players, with English being the main language spoken.  We are a friendly group who would make any player feel welcome. 
      We are currently 7/9 HC ToS and want to increase the raid team numbers to progress into mythic ToS in preparation for the next expansion
      Currently we are  looking for ranged dps players of any spec to join the raid team.  New members would be required to be active during the week for mythic + runs and attending the majority of raids, we understand that real life comes first but require active players to help us progress through content.  All applicants must be of ilevel 920 minimum (this is easy achievable with Argus)
      We raid Thursday Heroic Tomb and continue any left over content on Sunday.  Raid times are 7:30 server time to 10:30 server time on each of the days. 
      If you are interested please message Imryll in game (on every evening after finishing work) or leave your player name/realm/ilevel/spec here and I will get back to you ASAP.
      Many thanks for taking time to read this and hope to be adding some of you to our team.
      If you want to add me my battlenet is Eknz#2475

      -note: We will consider all good applications
      -socials are welcome to join.
      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 (22.30-01.00 server time sometimes to 01:30) 2+1 days per week (Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday as a progress night). 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 semi-hardcore raiding guild whose aim is to use our limited hours in the best way that we can, maintaining progress with a decent atmosphere.
      * We provide all "raiders" with free repairs from the Guild Bank 24/7. Members can also make use of the extensive mats available in the Guild Bank, all of which are provided for raiding.
      What do we expect from you if you raid with us?
      * Maturity in both age and attitude towards your fellow team mates (Don’t bother applying if you’re under the age of 17, we will most likely decline,)
      * A solid internet connection and a solid gaming rig to raid on (You’re useless to us if your connection drops out every encounter or your system cannot handle the FPS)
      * 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)
      * You’re able to take constructive criticism during raids and subsequently able to use that criticism to improve your level of skill, and play.
      * We expect all members to be able to connect to "Discord". Mic is optional.

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!
