Death Knight

Oct 18, 2012 Mop questing Thought I would let all DKs know that are about to/leveling in MoP. Pretty much every questing mob on Pandaria can be deathgriped whether or not it's a boss/elite that should have downtime or an invulnerable phase. Really speeds up any RP fights that some don't want to see a second, third maybe even a fourth time.Aeqx0 Oct 18, 2012

Oct 18, 2012 Death Knight needed for 10-man Raid Group Blood and Honor is a Horde guild on the Tanaris server. We are currently looking for a Death Knight to fill out one of our two 10-man raid teams. The ideal player will be able to fill roles as tank and dps as needed. We're friendly and casual. While the schedule is still in consideration, we normally run between 8:30 pm EST (Server Time) and 11pm EST two to three nights per week. If you are interested, roll a new toon on Tanaris and contact either "Cahoots" or "Displaced" in-game (in-game mail is fine). We look forward to hearing from you :)Gruuz0 Oct 18, 2012
Oct 18, 2012 tips for onyxia 10 solo spec Just looking for some tips for onyxia 10 I know that it's easy, I was able to do it at 85 as blood, but it took a very long time mostly because phase 2 is limited in damage you can deal to her and lots of adds to deal with. I would like input on how to do it easy and quickly. Some questions: Blood spec in dps gear, or dps spec in tank gear? If dps spec, frost or unholy best for managing air phase? Better yet, can you pull it off with both a dps spec and dps gear? (assuming lvl 90 blue gear mostly) Any tips on very effective talents/glyphs are good. Basically this comes down to whether frost or unholy can self heal enough, because I know blood would make the fight take too long.Sineval6 Oct 18, 2012
Oct 18, 2012 Unholy question So... havent been unholy for a while, is exp still low on the stat weights, is DnD still used rotationally? With the new haste gems will those pass strength at some point? All good things to know. Also, crit>mastery still? or does the increase to our diseases and soul reaper make mastery more favorable?Zalavaaris2 Oct 18, 2012
Oct 18, 2012 Glyph of Path of Frost The glyph of Path of Frost will prevent fall damage on friends or just the Death Knight? Also, does casting this before I hit water cause a collision? example Go easy, I haven't played Daily Death Knight since the Trial of the Grand Crusader.Babelon4 Oct 18, 2012
Oct 18, 2012 Need a PvP Guide plz Sup! Anyone knows where I could find a good guide for Arena pvp ? I want to read about the basics (gemming, glyph, must have talents, etc.) as I never did any serious pvp before besides fooling around in random BGs. I'll start to prepare myself as I make my way through 90 and hope to make my learning curve less steep ;) Big thanks!Ramoneur2 Oct 18, 2012
Oct 18, 2012 Blood Boil Damage? I'm currently a 2h Frost DK and am scratching my head over Blood Boil's damage. Blood Boil consistently outperforms Obliterate, FS and HB. Currently Obliterate crit gets me about 2,100 or so damage, HB and FS even less. Blood Boil gets me 2,600 normal damage and over 5k crit. I'm not complaining, just confused. Is this expected damage? If so I really so no reason to favor guaranteed obliterate crit over regular blood boil. -thanks!Therapistdk4 Oct 18, 2012

Oct 18, 2012 Leveling, Frost or Unholy? Hey there well I just entered the MoP leveling zones and I've been frost and blood since level 55. But thinking about it now I really like the idea of a perma pet in Unholy so my question is, is frost better for leveling above unholy? I believe from what I've read that Frost has more DPS but I don't really know the numbers on Unholy leveling wise. Please give me some feedback, maybe from someone who has leveled Unholy 85-90, but any feedback will do.Trevorkahn7 Oct 18, 2012
Oct 18, 2012 frost dk pvp question.

Oct 18, 2012 Question about Runes and Runic Power Hey all, First off, I'm fairly new to the Death Knight class, been playing this toon for about 3 days. I was wondering about our Skill/Spell priorities. I think I've got the basics down. I've seen some conflicting sources saying Obliterate with Killing Machine is higher on the list than HB with Rime. And some that say it's the other way around. But anyway, the main question would be how would you prioritize the Runic Power dump over Rune use? For example, and this happens every now and again, I do not have a full set of Runes down. So using Frost Strike will not proc my Runic Empowerment. However, I'm almost at the Runic Power cap, 90-95 for example. So spending the Rune will lead to a waste in Runic Power generation as I have hit the cap. But then again, dumping will have no positive effect on getting Runic Empowerment to proc. Was wondering what should I be doing in this case? I usually figure to dump the Runic Power first as I will regenerate the Runic Power once I use the Rune. However, I'm not completely sure. Does anyone have any advice on what I should be doing? Really appreciate any and all constructive advice. Thanks! -OceannisOceannis2 Oct 18, 2012

Oct 18, 2012 Why is this macro needed for Dark Simulacrum? So I'm getting a late start-up back here in Mists after having taken a 3 month break at the end of Cataclysm. I've been doing some quick DK website research in order to get back into the swing of things and I came across a "macro" that I don't quite in I don't understand why it is necessary (I understand the syntax and what it does). The macro is listed as being useful for Dark Simulacrum and is simply a "mass" /cancelaura. I'd like to know: 1) Why is this macro necessary? 2) It does not even have "/cast Dark Simulacrum" in would it be something you used BEFORE or AFTER you cast Dark Simulacrum? This is the macro and description as listed on the website: /cancelaura Lichborne /cancelaura Hand of Protection /cancelaura Unholy Frenzy /cancelaura Ice Block /cancelaura Divine Shield How it Works - Cancels all beneficial spells, so you can use Dark Simulacrum without wasting a cooldown. If you’re feeling social you can also put in a /laugh for their enjoyment.Seplo5 Oct 18, 2012
Oct 18, 2012 Armory bug? Curious, after looking over a few other death knights with similar ilvl, and knowing for a fact that I have better stats in a few cases, I still see thier base str, haste, and attack power on the armory is a lot higher than my own. Can someone shed some light on this for me?Chelmon5 Oct 18, 2012
Oct 18, 2012 Frost PvP: HB or Icy Touch Glyphed? So has anyone thought about the trade offs between using these two spells: damage over utility? Also, what have you guys selected as your Level 58 Talent for PvP?Musing4 Oct 18, 2012

Oct 18, 2012 Blood DK healing done Hello fellow Deathknights! I am trying to get some feedback on how much of the total healing I should be doing in a 5 man heroic. As of right now I am averaging about 24% of healing done. Is this good, bad, or normal? I have been trying very hard to become more reactive with my death strives and rune taps, which has helped bring that number significantly. One more thing to note is I can't find blood shield anywhere on recount, if anyone knows how to fix this or a better addon, please let me know. Thanks in advance!Sévén12 Oct 18, 2012

Oct 18, 2012 No quest(s) that leads me out of DK starting? This is my first DK...I have gone through quite a bit of quests but I seem to have run out? The last quest I turned in was the one with the cauldron, where I received the health potions using the skulls. Now I'm out of quetsts. I looked on WoWhead and I seem to have completed them all? I must be missing some of them? Shouldn't there be a quest that leads me to Org or something like that? Any help would be appreciated. SyrSyrvaak2 Oct 18, 2012
Oct 18, 2012 Blood Death Knight pre raid gear Hey everyone. So I'm just kind of a fresh 90 haven't had much play time at 90 with work and all that fun jazz.

Any help is much appreciated :)Càs1 Oct 18, 2012

Oct 17, 2012 MoP DW Frost I just started playing again yesterday and decided to see how frost spec had changed since MoP. In the process I've noticed a lot of people and guides mentioning how 2h frost is now better than DW for PvE. Is this true? I haven't delved into MoP much yet. So any advice to help me get started in the right direction would be much appreciated.Fayladin7 Oct 17, 2012
Oct 17, 2012 Give asphyxiate a passive effect Give it a slow on blood plague as well as the current stun ability. then we would have 1. snare mitigation 2. ranged/aoe slows and a root 3. melee snare+stun CD instead of 1. snare mitigation 2. ranged/aoe slows and a root 3. noob flaggerKittiehater8 Oct 17, 2012
Oct 17, 2012 /cry anyone else that used to 2h frost remember how smooth the rotation was? anyone want unholy to actually be a non redundant spec that is comparable with frost(dps wise)? I swear it's near impossible to have a smooth rotation with 2h frost. I've looked at guides and tried all sorts of different ways to get a good rotation but it is impossible to have a lasting rotation throughout a simple fight with one enemy. Now with unholy... When MoP came out i was hoping for one major change, for unholy to be actually competetive when it came to dps. It's rotation can last nearly forever but its overall dps is horrid compared to frost dw. Also unholy has the worst survivability and is extremely hard to solo in MoP because they can't kill enemies fast enough. Sorry i just needed to vent my anger out but nevertheless, this is all true for me.Lahgtah10 Oct 17, 2012

Oct 17, 2012 soul reaper macro for blood tanks? Hey hey hey, so I'm not very good with macro creating and was wondering if somebody could make or has a macro that would basically show the tooltip for soul reaper so I can see its cooldown, but cast heart strike unless I'm holding in shift, in which case it will cast soul reaper. I've tried using google to look for a macro to do this but have been unsuccessful. Edited spelling errors, accidentally posted this too early >.<Ginjek5 Oct 17, 2012
Oct 17, 2012 How can I improve? Those are my logs from my Elegon kill. I feel like I can improve in some areas Im just not sure what. Would really appreciate any feedback that could help me.

Oct 17, 2012 So how's Pandaren's Step working out? Hey all. I'm wondering what the best boot enchant would be for 2h Frost PvP. I'm a huge fan of stacking Haste right now, so I threw Greater Haste on my disposable honor point boots, but for my Conquest boots I thought I should give it more consideration. Is anyone using Pandaren's Step, and if so could you regale me with tales of its awesomeness? In particular, does the movement speed increase (I heard it's like 8%) stack with On a Pale Horse and Death's Advance? Cuz if not, it doesn't seem like the Mastery benefit by itself is too exciting. People keep telling me Pandaren's Step is the preferred enchant, but I just can't get into it.Dravot2 Oct 17, 2012

Oct 17, 2012 2H Frost Stat Priority. Hey guys, I'm 2h frost dps and I'm currently 2h frost pve and I've been reforging my haste on gear to crit if there isn't a crit value or mastery if there IS a crit value. I've been seeing alot of people getting lots of haste for pvp frost and I'm wondering if I should get my haste back or the priority for green stats on gear. Thanks in advance.Juraull5 Oct 17, 2012

Oct 17, 2012 [Suggestion] Asphyxiate Alternative *Disclaimer! This is an unofficial idea. Desecrated Ground "When your Blood Plague deals damage, a 5 yard radius beneath the victim's feet becomes desecrated, reducing the movement speed of all enemies standing upon the unholy ground by 50%. Desecrated Ground effects cannot be created within 10 yards of each other and each effect lasts 8 seconds".Think of a Monk's Path of Blossoms but the enemies generate the effect instead. edit: Just an idea, not a patch note I read somewhere. edit 2: I suppose I have a way with tooltip language.Pushßutton11 Oct 17, 2012

Oct 17, 2012 Plague Leech: Outbreak I'm afraid of the stories my friends tell me about Ambien. Anyway, just had a thought about disease "protection". First, some opinions: Glyph of Enduring Infection costs too much damage. Glyph of Outbreak costs too much RP. Plague Leech doesn't fit in the "Disease Application" tree. Killing three stones with one bird?
