Blood DK Fixes

#1 » Post by innocentguy » 12 Dec 2013 05:33

There have been quite a few fixes (in general) recently and so I want to ask...

Has anyone done any testing as to which Blood talents are now working? Is it now viable to go Blood for tanking/dps??

In particular are essential skills such as Heart Strike and Vampiric Blood working? (I've tested Rune Tap myself; works.)

I would test things myself but I've never played Blood before and I honestly have no idea where to start or how to tell.

I wasn't aware of any bugs on Heart Strike or Vampiric Blood.
Can you explain what is/was bugged? Maybe I can take a glance at them.

From what I know, only Dancing Rune Weapon and Bloodworms are bugged. Dancing Rune Weapon doesn't strike with abilities, just auto attacks, and only 1 Bloodworm spawn instead of 2-4.

Ah I had no clue what was bugged and what wasn't to be honest. I was just listing essential Blood talents. Thanks for the responses.

I did hear that Blood has trouble with threat here, which is contrary to what I have google-ed. According to what I found, Blood tanks are supposed to have the highest single target threat of all the DK tank specs (but of course I haven't tested it myself).

IMO "Blood tanks here on TW generate way less aggro when using Heart Strike (like they are supposed to) than say if using Icy Touch,given how bugged dps's are (& the lack of any wait time for a tank to build a threat lead), its not currently viable to go for a full blood tank spec, when you have to resort to IT spam to maintain a decent threat lead,& if you have to IT spam its better to be a frost tank since the frost tree has talents which improve the utility of IT & Frost Fever."

PS. I tested all 3 specs a dk can tank in.
