Best tanking/dps spec ever!
Return to board index
Alright, in all seriousness this spec takes all the major tanking talents except for maybe
which would help with aoe tanking. Other than that I believe its very solid. Its built around high crit, which will produce more threat (not that DK need help with threat, but what the hell) In tanking gear the base chance for obliterate to crit would be 32% along with most other strikes having decently high crit chance. On top of that
will produce higher procs (since according to all research i've done personally, rune strike for all intensive purposes is considered an auto attack) for
crits which are always fun. As for the the points in
, not only will it produce more damage but combined with
it could produce some clutch self heals for when your healer gets a little behind. Which i believe could give your healer enough time to get you topped back off and kill that final boss. So besides being a solid tanking build I believe this can do some major damage in pvp. Now I realize this wont matter at all once dual specs roll out but until then, I think its pretty money. So if you have any feedback on it, things you like, things you'd do different or whatever please let me know. And btw I'm super noob to posting (first post ever). So if someone would be so kind as to walk me through how to set up my links to actually have the text say what the ability is that i'm linking i'd be much obliged. (I of course expect the flames for this, but please atleast be clever ) Anyways, thats my 2 cents on the "best tanking/dps spec ever"
edit: added glyph of death strike which I forgot to include earlier
Rune strikes are not considered Auto-Attacks so Killing Machine won't proc nearly as often as you'd like.
Past that this is probably the best tanking/dps spec I've seen, but a jack of two trades ,in this case, is a master of neither. I'm biased towards an Unholy spec for tanking but w/e. Frost just doesn't have the mitigation Unholy does.
This spec looks fine for low-level heroics DPS/tanking but once you hit the harder bosses it might not work imo.
Thats what I assumed as well, as although I haven't had a chance to test it personally it seems that others have. I can refer you to a couple of threads where people confirm Killing Machine proc'ing off of Rune strike. I believe one even has a screenshot to confirm it. Again I haven't personally tested anything, and we all know how reliable information on the internet can be. But here are the links, take it or leave it
I could have sworn that there was a post with a link to a screen shot showing Killing Machine proc off of Rune strike but I'm unable to find it now. Either way, there is alot of contradictory information out there. Can anyone test this out and let us know if in fact Rune Strike crits are proc'ing Killing Machine? I am unable to at this time, otherwise I of course would do it myself.
Also @mpmagi you say "Past that this is probably the best tanking/dps spec I've seen, but a jack of two trades ,in this case, is a master of neither." What would you change around here to make this a better tanking spec? I personally dont see anything else that I could do to improve damage mitigation. And since I dont foresee holding threat to be a problem, then I have designed the perfect build and therefore I am the greatest man alive. ( but fo realz, what would make it better?)
I tend to prefer
Expertise is important and I tend to use Howling Blasts over Death and Decay, Obliterate, or Death Strike with a build like this.
5/5 Blood of the North is important to me.
Killing Machine isn't necessary, however, you can move the points from Icy Talons/Imp IT to Killing Machine/Deathchill.
