General Information

On this page, you will find a number of useful simulation results for your Blood Death Knights in World of Warcraft — Shadowlands 9.0.2.

1.

Disclaimer: Simulations for Support Roles

With the development of tools such as Raidbots, it is easier than ever to run simulations for your own character, and for DPS roles, we strongly recommend doing so. For tanks and healers, however, SimulationCraft can produce confusing or even misleading information. By default, SimulationCraft provides information about damage output and does not consider healing or damage mitigation requirements. Additionally, some support specializations are only partially maintained or run rotations that would not be practical to maintain in a raid or dungeon environment. Support specializations rely on alternative tools for evaluating healing and damage mitigation decisions.

Blood Death Knight Talent Row Simulations

These simulations only evaluate damage output, and only cover specific talent rows where the damage variance is significant, or is commonly perceived to be so. See the talents page for detailed talent recommendations.

Level 50 Talents

Even though there is a performance difference on this row, the choice comes primarily from the content type and whether it is possible for you to pool 100 Runic Power reliably every minute.

The APL is being reworked to handle this, and as such, sims are not available yet for it. You should expect to see Bonestorm Icon Bonestorm be a net offensive gain on 2 targets over spending the Runic Power on Death Strike Icon Death Strike, however.
