bump with ideas man!
maybe lower cd on remorseless winter to 30s.
Really though, we are one of the classes that needs an overhaul of our talents and our abilities so that they are competitive. No reason a mage should have 10x the survivability of a dk while keeping their control and their damage.
Last I checked DK's are competitive somewhat, they're just overshadowed massively by the sheer power of other classes, most notably Warriors, who they are typically in competition for spots with.
Some of these "suggestions" are ridiculous, it's like you want to return DK to the dark age of S5. 30s CD on Remorseless winter? Are you for real? DK is not supposed to be a control unit, it's supposed to be a constant pressure one, an anti-caster at its finest. There's a reason they tend to suck against melee, it's because DKs have barely any counters to melee damage, but plenty to spell effects. Alright, want IBF on a 2 minute cooldown? Now you get AMS on a 1 minute cooldown as well. Enjoy.
It's cute you think that remorseless winter is that good.
Regardless I don't really care about DK cc being buffed other than fixing the obvious problems with strangulate.
I personally just feel like DKs should either have deaths advance baseline or chillblains/DA for their respective specs.
Secondly would just be having bone shield baseline, it gets suggested a lot and I think it would do exactly what DKs need in giving a reasonable survival boost and a slight move speed boost that is available regularly.
The other idea given by Shendelzare of giving AMS a physical reduction similar to cloak glyph is another great idea that would fit well if bone shield isn't going to happen.
I feel buffing IBF would be a last resort buff if these two above options aren't viable but honestly the way DKs feel right now a change up in how we operate would be welcome.
The other issues such as soul reaper, I highly doubt they would consider changing it so *shrug*
Necrotic strike being back on an unholy rune would be definitely welcomed and I think being able to switch between burst and build up pressure would be an amazing thing for DKs to have after it being totally build up in Cata and totally burst in MOP
In terms of the class I would welcome a change to the way DKs play in general but for now as I said earlier we aren't a CC class so I don't care if they buff it, a decent mobility buff to return the ability to kite, which was a DK staple and to me felt the real separator between DKs and other melees , and a slight survivability buff which is mostly neccessary due to the ease of being locked down and dying in a stun which a mobility buff wouldn't assist with. These are the two things I feel we currently need addressed and anything further would probably make us OP, which would result in us getting a nerf down the track and probably ending up worse off for an entire expansion which has happened twice now?
