1. Blood DK DPS 3.3.5 (Blood Reaper)

    Blood DPS Guide (Blood Reaper)

    Introduction


    Blood DK dps is one of the finer single target dps specs, very dependent on gear to become competitive as it needs high arp and a decent weapon damage to become efficient. Having one of the best bursts and also very fine single target dps making it compete with frost and even surpassing it when becoming BiS with SM. Blood does not bring any rare buff to raids unlike Frost & Unholy

    (Use this with all your abilities just change Heart Strike with the ability you want to use)

    #showtooltip Heart Strike
    /cast Heart
    /cast !Rune Strike

    Hysteria Macro (Best time to use is after the first Death Strike)

    #showtooltip Hysteria
    /cast Hysteria
    /cast Blood Fury (Racial)
    /use Potion of Speed
    /cast Horn of Winter

    Spoiler: Show


    Dancing Rune Weapon is useless, doing about 10% of damage thus heavily crippling the blood dps burst and making us have no damage cd aside hysteria. and the syngery between drw and hysteria is just so good thus making hysteria undesired on us. https://www.warmane.com/bugtracker/report/20643

    Donorbashed! One of the best hunters in Warmane I’d go as far as say the best hunter! I’ve learned a lot from him from his hunter guides and his great detailed explanations! (Check his site, hunter players enjoy the orgasms)

    xMiSHOx for being one of the most committed and best blood dk’s in Warmane! He has been playing blood dk even before the Death Rune Mastery was fixed and he was even able to top the charts! A round of applaud for him! (I have no idea where he plays now :( we used to be in Lordaeron…notice me senpai!)

    EatBestDk for having made a BiS list for every spec. it’s a very tiring process (in his thread he will literally try any item recommended in the posts and post the screen shot with the new stats in comparison) now that’s dedication!

    Joana of *******-wow (sorry won’t name server I don’t wanna get banned). Great work on all 3 specs and detailed too.

    The guild “is a dribbla ”. For always being there for me even when am not there. Transferring soon just you wait! (My thanks to any ally who farms Striderman (guild leader) in Deathwing )

  2. Great guide! Are u now able to out dps frost dks since the km nerf?
    About necrosis: To my understanding when it says shadow dmg its always magic and not physical dmg. However since the auto attack dmg gets increased by arp it also indirectly increase the necrosis dmg.

    I still haven't joined my guild in Deathwing waiting for them to enable realm transfer. all my runs have been pugs and I've beat them all! but just so you know none of them were competent so I'll wait to answer that when I raid with my competitive guild mates :D

    Thank you for the update.

    http://wotlk.openwow.com/spell=51465 damage actually counts as a physical attack not magical,
    the damage is shadow that's true but goes towards physical. you can check the 6 schools of magic
    Arcane-Fire-Frost-Nature-Shadow-Holy & physical . and well as you see Necrosis falls under Physical which means it's affected by Armor not shadow resistance! you can check this by attacking a player while he uses flawless fang and than again without. you will get the same results (cross your finger to have the same number of necrosis attacks) (thanks for bringing this up I'll continue further investigations in this matter)

    See http://wotlk.openwow.com/spell=48806 & http://wotlk.openwow.com/spell=48800 no matter he has 5% or 100% arp it's not a physical attack to begin with.

  4. U could check ur necrosis dmg on the dummy with and with out a 13%magic increase buff.

  5. U could check ur necrosis dmg on the dummy with and with out a 13%magic increase buff.
    I will try that right now! can't believe I over complicated it that much lol ;)


    EDIT: I just tested and well the ebon plague didn't increase the damage what's so ever, please test it yourself aswell I removed both trinks,ashen ring & fallen crusader

    Ebon plague:
    Min-257 Avg-494 -Max-930 count 34

    Without Ebon Plague:
    Min-261 Avg-537 Max-935 count 44

    Don't mind the damage I was using an old weapon in inventory without fallen crusader

    *this is by no means proof, the UH dk left and couldn't find anyone else to continue comparing with so am going to update this again but for a complete 10mint of melee hits

    (gonna do it with a locks curse of elements since it's easier for them to update a 1mint buff than a 20seconds one )

    ***PLEASE MORE DK'S TEST THIS (REMOVE any proc items for better results(trinks, ashen ring & fallen crusader)***

  6. That talent tree is so wrong. That isn't even patch 3.3.5a
    And why a ring is an option for relic?

  7. The only problem i have with blood dps is that bosses for example lord morowgar enrage when you use dancing rune weapon... i posted it on bugtracker, gm denied it but i always see it happen in icc. Morowgar starts doing 2x the flames and hitting faster with no buff indicating it. Next time you're in icc please keep an eye on it and try to record/screenshot it. I can only do it in 10 nm pugs couse im usually saved with my guild and they need me as frost :)

  8. nice job on the guide!

    i think that the your talent tree is not correct so i believe for patch 3.3.5 you mean something like this :
    http://rpgworld.altervista.org/335/d...00000000000000

    if you ppl can test and prove these bugs especialy with Death Runes plz do it.

    Thanks for the correction, I honestly didn't read the skill abilities in this talent tree as I know them by heart my mistake for not checking them.

    thanks :D

    Yup that's the correct talent tree! I just hurriedly did it without checking the patch my mistake

    and yes please more DK'S test the bugs and give your feedback on the bugtracker

  11. Can you please share ur gear and how much DPS are you doing? I'd really appreciate that.
    If possible, try doing this test with a dummy.

    Latest I can do that will be May. it's blocked here in my University, I usually use vpn but the latency is an average of 2k :(

    I'll ask my dk guild mates to post instead of me.

    With glorenzelg I've been doing about 10-15% less DPS in blood than in frost, but also note that Blood Gorged and Death Rune Mastery are still bugged. So with shadowmourne and these bugs fixed, BDK > FDK.
    BIS gear for both, except blood weapon.

  14. Dancing rune weapon dosnet show on recount is it bugged just test it

  15. Dancing rune weapon dosnet show on recount is it bugged just test it
    I don't know if it shows on recount or not, but it sure does damage.
    Wait, I have been DPSing on blood more than I thought? Maybe even without SMourne my blood does more damage than frost, then!
