Question when dealing with Blood DK's..

Paladin
How do we handle them 1v1? I know we're suppose to avoid them (or have backup) but some given circumstances.. we can't.

Like for example.. was doing 2's with a Resto Druid and myself as Ret of course, and went up against a Blood DK and Boomkin... I kill the Boomkin but the Blood DK just basically takes small amounts of damage and just heals off of it. I kill his minion and try to burst but it still does no good. Tried to use Wrath but when he's focusing me, it's hard to do so.. not to mention they still hit ridiculously hard.

Unfortunately after 15 or so minutes in the battle, my Druid partner D/C's and the Blood DK kills me. I tried to kite, using judgments, exorcisms when it's up and Holy Prism when I had no CD's. Nothing really worked. I managed to get him down one time to around 30% but he just healed back up fairly quick.
Only thing you can do is focus on kiting. Freedom yourself when a full/root chains, blinding light or hoj/foj when they grip you on, heal when possible, save cooldowns for when AMS is popped so you can ranged him down harder.

Remember emancipate if it's just a slow on chains.

And cleanse your diseases when possible!
Kite them, only use TV during cds, don't get in melee range without stunning him.
Arcane torrent can be useful, blinding light during dancing rune weapon.

I tried haha, I mean I'm all Ty geared, gemmed, enchanted..etc..etc.. but so was the DK. Guess next time I'll try switching to SW instead of HA if I get into a match with a Blood DK in it and see if that may help.
