Best Gems for Blood Death Knight in MoP Remix

The overwhelming majority of your character's strength in MoP Remix comes from the gems you slot into all of the slots in your gear. You will be able to equip a Meta gem, a Cogwheel gem granting you a unique utility ability, along with up to 12 Tinker gems, and all of these grant unique effects.

On this page, we will list the strongest available options, and explain the synergy behind some of them. We'll also highlight traps and pitfalls, as a number of gems provide zero value to Blood Death Knights specifically.

To learn more about Gems in MoP Remix in general, check out our dedicated page below.

  • Meta Gem: Thundering Orb Icon Thundering Orb / Precipice of Madness Icon Precipice of Madness (with Arcanist's Edge Icon Arcanist's Edge equipped and in a party or raid) / Chi-ji, the Red Crane Icon Chi-ji, the Red Crane (Open-world content only)
  • Cogwheel Gem: Heroic Leap Icon Heroic Leap
  • Prismatic Gems:

    You will have a tremendous amount of stats as you start unlocking all Gem slots, and there is no single best stat to stack. Generally speaking, you should aim to not avoid any stat in particular unless you do not have Arcanist's Edge Icon Arcanist's Edge, at which point you should avoid Mastery outright while still aiming to not push a single stat past any Diminishing Returns.

  • Tinker Gems:
    • Memory of Vengeance Icon Memory of Vengeance
    • Arcanist's Edge Icon Arcanist's Edge
    • Fervor Icon Fervor
    • Slay Icon Slay
    • Windweaver Icon Windweaver
    • Brittle Icon Brittle (Dungeons or fights with adds)
    • Sunstrider's Flourish Icon Sunstrider's Flourish (Dungeons or fights with adds)
    • Explosive Barrage Icon Explosive Barrage
    • Lightning Rod Icon Lightning Rod
    • Incendiary Terror Icon Incendiary Terror
    • Quick Strike Icon Quick Strike
    • Wildfire Icon Wildfire (Dungeons or fights with adds)
    • Meteor Storm Icon Meteor Storm

The following gems should be avoided as they do not provide any value whatsoever to Blood Death Knight:

Meta Gems

  • Tireless Spirit Icon Tireless Spirit: Does not remove all resource costs, removes Runic power gains from a number of abilities, and does not remove charge costs on charge-based abilities

Tinker Gems

  • Deliverance Icon Deliverance: Death Strike Icon Death Strike healing is not counted
  • Savior Icon Savior: you have no way to heal allies
  • Searing Light Icon Searing Light: Death Strike Icon Death Strike healing is not counted

Leveling Rotation for Blood Death Knight

  1. Use Death and Decay Icon Death and Decay where you intend to fight; your goal is to keep both you and your enemies in it for as long as possible. Cast it on cooldown, but do not overlap them!
  2. Use Abomination Limb Icon Abomination Limb and Empower Rune Weapon Icon Empower Rune Weapon when they are available. Your goal is to never delay these casts! You should leverage the 9 Bone Shield Icon Bone Shield charges Abomination Limb Icon Abomination Limb in order to avoid casting Marrowrend Icon Marrowrend.
  3. Use Dancing Rune Weapon Icon Dancing Rune Weapon on cooldown as long. You should aim to be below Bone Shield Icon Bone Shield charges when you cast this, but it is better to just send it.
  4. Use Tombstone Icon Tombstone when you have at least 6 Bone Shield Icon Bone Shield charges, you are within your own Death and Decay Icon Death and Decay and Dancing Rune Weapon Icon Dancing Rune Weapon still is on cooldown.
  5. Use Marrowrend Icon Marrowrend (or Death's Caress Icon Death's Caress if you are out of melee range) if your Bone Shield Icon Bone Shield is about to expire.
  6. Use Death Strike Icon Death Strike if your health is low or if you are above 75 Runic Power.
  7. Use Blood Boil Icon Blood Boil if any nearby enemies do not have your Blood Plague Icon Blood Plague disease, or you are close to having 2 charges of Blood Boil Icon Blood Boil.
