It is best to cast this shortly before combat or during phases when you cannot attack the boss, since it has a cast time during which you cannot attack.

 

- At 6.0.2 you dont need to cast it anymore.

Unholy do NOT have Soul Reaper! Even if you switch to Blood Presence.

What level are you? Level 90 Death Knights have Soul Reaper in all specialisations (and all presences).

Hi. I wish to know if that guide can be applied to PvP as well. Speacilly the builds, cos based on the way its written, looks like more based to PvE. And for example, comparing to the tips from Noxxic (another great guide), both of you goes in very different lines of build.

 

So I would like to have it cleared, for no confusions, thx.

And if the guide is more relate to PvE, do you guys have pvp guides? cos I didnt find at the site.

All of our class guides on Icy Veins are designed exclusively for PvE. We are not likely to start doing PvP guides any time soon, I'm afraid.

Hey, first of all, this is a really nice guide! but I got a question regarding Scourge Strike and Festering Strike, if I end up in a situation which leads me with 4 death runes for single target DPS does SS have more priority over FS? and what spec do you think ends up with more sustained DPS? Unholy or 2H frost?
Cheers!

"

  1. Cast wow_icon_ability_deathknight_soulreaper. Soul Reaper
    • Only when the target is below 45% health."

 

don't u mean 35% health? Or am I getting something wrong?

it is an Draenor perk that allows to use our execute at 45%

Yeah, SS is higher priority. Obviously, don't forego FS to the point where your diseases drop off though :)

 

As for sustained DPS, I'm not sure. We'll see how it is going into raids.

for me Necrotic Plague takes much more dps out of my DK at Bossfights or dummy.. In fact off the 30 sec. dot @ 15 stacks..  defile is nice at aoe but thats all.. for each bossfight i would ever use Necrotic Plaque at the moment..

Since when did Runic Corruption become the best Tier 4 talent? Up until now it was always listed as the worst.

I dont understand why you say that the statistic priority is: 

1: mastery 

2: multistrike

 

when all i see from the Simulation craft is that they want Multistrike and more multistrike!

This is pasted directly from sim craft: 

Crit 12.91% 7.91% 320

 

Haste

35.60% 7.62% 762

 

Multistrike

21.44% 14.85% 980

 

Damage / Heal Versatility

3.49% 0.49% 64

 

Attack Power

4670 3768 0

 

Mastery

47.18% 34.68% 646

 

Armor

1849 1849 1849

Hope you can help me understand why your guide is not matching the sim craft you are linking to

The stat priority had a bit of a problem. It should be fixed now. Thank you for pointing it out.

so we gem + enchant multistrike now? No Mastery anymore? Or do I get this wrong? (Cause stat priority changed though)

No worries mate...you should be using Defile on bosses to. Its a significant increase from DnD. Is it not part of your rotation?

You show Multistrike as the #1 stat, yet go for Mastery gems/enchants/food? Is that a mistake after changing those two in the order?

Just another thing.. Since multistrike is on top of the prio list surely we must gem and enchant in multistrike right? since it says mastery on the guide

I always read your guides for all of my toons. Thanks for this. My DK is lvl 81, so the consumables you have here are useless to me right now because they require lvl 90. What do you suggest for my lvl?

I don't understand. You say that Haste is our worst stat, but on the other hand you want us to use Runic Corruption, which scales with Haste obviously. Also it would be nice to know why prior to that it was stated that Blood Tap was best, because as far as I see it, Blood Tap gives me 1 Death Rune guaranteed for 75 Runic Power while Runic Empowerment gives me a 45% chance for 1 Death Rune per 30 Runic Power, which seems a bit random but should be overall better?

 

I really would have the logic explained behind having Haste as our worst stat, but picking Runic Corruption as rune refresher.

Hei, and cheers for a great guide!

 

Is it possible somehow to imitate an simmulare effect like this mage macro with defile? 

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast Frostbolt
  • /cast Freeze

Using a macro such as the one above will enable you to automatically make use of wow_icon_spell_frost_frostnova.jpg Freeze whenever it comes off cooldown. Remember that wow_icon_spell_frost_frostbolt02.jpg Frostbolt does not consume the charges of wow_icon_ability_mage_wintersgrasp.jpg Fingers of Frost that Freeze generates. Also, making your Water Elemental cast Freeze while you are casting Frostbolt will have no incidence on your cast of Frostbolt.

      The patch is now live on EU, NA and AU servers, after some difficulties with offline realms and connectivity issues, so Blizzard have shared some known issues as well as some additional info on upcoming hotfixes for BoA legendary acquisition via Wakening Essences and the honor/prestige level changes.
      Known Issues (source)
      Hello all,
      Below is a list of known issues for patch 8.0.1. Please note that this list is not a complete depiction of what we're aware of, but a sampling of issues we believe players may encounter more often. We'll try to keep this updated with trending issues when possible.
      General
      Mounts: Gladiator's Proto-Drakes do not display information on how to obtain mounts in journal.
      Sometimes when summoning a player as they change zones, the summon prompt will not appear.
      Stat & Spell Squish Impacts
      There are multiple issues with legacy spells & monsters scaling incorrectly.
      Dungeon and Raid
      Legacy Loot: Many raid creatures no longer drop gold.
      Highmaul: Highmaul bosses are not dropping the appropriate amount of gold when the raid is set to mythic.Dungeon Journal - Baradin Hold: There exists an option to view Baradin Hold in 10/25 man Heroic even though the difficulty does not exist.
      A Lua error may occur if you try viewing the dungeon journal from the bonus roll prompt while outside of the instance.
      Communities/Guilds/Groups/UI
      Communities will reference "Starter Edition" accounts as "Veteran Trial".
      Guild: Inviting players who are currently in your group to a guild may produce an assertion.
      Opening the Character Pane after equipping a newly acquired item on a character may result in a crash.
      Looting the corpse after a boss encounter while in a group may produce an assertion.
      Communities: Blank spaces will appear in Guild rosters if players have not logged in for multiple years.
      Players may be unable to whisper cross realm when selecting whisper from Communities UI.
      Compatibility
      DX12: Intel PSO caching issue with Intel unreleased driver.
      DX12: Crash may occur when game uses more GPU Memory than hardware allows.
      Performance on some GPUs while using DX12 is lower than DX11.
      And here are some previous tweets we already covered, so you're up to date on everything in case you missed it, featuring Allied Race unlock requirements, Brawler's Guild currency conversion and Mythic mounts:

      We found a cutscene with Vol'jin that presumably takes place after players defeat Blood God G'huun in Battle for Azeroth. This article contains spoilers.
      Now, remember this is an Old God expansion and we can't be exactly sure if it's really the good old Vol'jin or some sort of illusion that we're dealing with here.
      In the cutscene, Spirit of Vol'jin tells Princess Talanji to become the leader of her people and show them some sort of blade that was possibly used to kill G'huun. It's interesting to see that King Rastakhan does not appear here, suggesting he might be dead and it might be the right time for Princess Talanji to take over. The cutscene is a throwback to to the Black Panther movie. Credit to LeystTV for the video.
      Transcript
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Show dem, leader of Zandalar. Show da blade to those dat need to see it da most. Give dem peace. 
      Princess Talanji: Dis was not my achievement.
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Ya brought de champion to dese shores against ya father's will. Ya learned da secrets of G'huun when no one be listenin'.
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Ya set in motion what be needed ta save ya people. Now, more than ever, dey be callin' for a leader dey can love and trust.
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Show dem da blade. Become da symbol dey need.
      Princes Talanji: Behold de blood of G'huun. By his will were borne de deaths of Shadra, Hi'reek, Torga, and ...and Rezan.
      Princess Talanji: By his will were borne de deaths of so many of our brothers and sisters.
      Princess Talanji: Let dis glaive be displayed as a reminder dat no matter how far we fall, no matter how much we lose, we are Zandalari! We adapt, we find a way to survive!
      Princess Talanji: If it were not for dis hero of de Horde, our losses would have been far worse. DIs proves, more than ever, dat it is time for us to adapt, to become part of de world again.
      Princess Talanji: Zandalar forever!

      The worldwide release of the pre-patch has not gone as smoothly as Blizzard would have liked and the Communities feature had to be completely disabled in Europe for now.
      Check out the list of known issues for problems that emerged after launch.

      Hi everyone,

      So, as you’ve noticed, today’s patch release has not gone nearly as smoothly as we would have liked. We’re sorry for how this has affected the stability and playability of the game while these issues have been ongoing. This has obviously not been the launch that any of us wanted.

      That said, we want you to know that there are currently several teams of people working hard to get you back in Azeroth and enjoying the Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch as quickly as possible. We’ll share more details in this thread when we can.

      Thanks for your patience,

      The World of Warcraft Team Blizzard's working on a fix to enable the WoW Communities feature in EU. The in-game and guild chat channels remain are still available for use.
      Blizzard (Source)
      As we work to identify the cause of these issues, we will be temporarily disabling the World of Warcraft Communities feature. The in-game and guild chat channels will still be available for use. The Guild Calendar may also be missing events while we address these concerns.

      Well, no one has to to buy base WoW anymore, ever! Everything you need to do to play up until the upcoming expansion, Battle for Azeroth, is an active subscription. No more battle chests and individual purchases, just pay that monthly fee and access the entire game as it is at the moment, with nothing missing until August 14th, when you'll have to buy BfA for the new content. Additional digital deluxe items from expansions are available at the Blizzard shop individually, but it's now easier than ever to jump into the game and just start playing through the six expansions and 110 levels!
      Recruit a Friend has also been updated:

    • By Stan
      According to recent reports, all players who opens their Grand Challenger's Bounty this week will receive 1,000 Wakening Essences that can be used to purchase one specific Legendary item in the BfA pre-patch.
      In Patch 8.0.1, players can purchase specific Legendary items from Arcanomancer Vridiel in Dalaran for 1,000 Wakening Essences each. You can now get Wakening Essences from World Quests and other Artifact Power sources. Legendaries will cease to work at level 116 in Battle for Azeroth. Some Legendary effects even stack with new talents. Check out our Patch 8.0.1 Survival Guide for more details!

      Here's an update from Blizzard:
      Blizzard (Source)
      Due to changes to the Mythic+ system in Battle for Azeroth, players will not receive their normal Mythic Cache loot and keystone this week. As this was unintended, we will be providing 1000 Wakening Essence as well as a Keystone in the Mythic Cache. If you have a problem looting the Mythic Cache, the keystone will be mailed to you and the wakening essences will be granted after logging in again.
      Our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience!
