View Full Version : Advice on respec and gear

08-30-2009, 11:59 PM
I plan on respeccing blood soon, can anyone give me any advice on this spec? Click (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#j0EGVh0IcbofssxhxZ0gh:idG0Mm). I'm in particular unsure about my third glyph.

I also want to know what my stats should be around before I start tanking naxx, OS and VoA. Alot of players ingame, even those I play with regularly say I should have around 28k unbuffed before hitting naxx >.> but alot of the forums say I should be fine already once I hit def cap. I'm aware I'm only at the heroics cap atm, I'm waiting to pick up the t8 helm before picking up the arcanum, I should hit 540 then.

I started tanking naxx when I hit the Def Cap. But the DK was a lot stronger back when naxx was done the first time.
I think it should be possible for you to tank Naxx with Def Cap and some decent Healers. You will get some problems on some encounters, I'm thinking of Patchwerk e.g.. I don't see any armory Link so can't give you exact advice on Items.

My blood specc has 3 Points which are different than in that you posted Link (http://talent.mmo-champion.com/?deathknight=0355320530003303201020131350305000000 00000000000000000000005230000000000000000000000000 0&glyph=262010060405&version=10192)
Sudden Doom looks like a great talent, but for tanking it's really not that great. The TPS you gain from it is minimal and you can't depend on it proccing. I took Subversion over that because you will need any aggro talents you can get when you specc blood. Without Armore reducing effects like SA or FF you'll have to do a lot more than most tanks. Glyphs are perfect for the specc nothing to add there.

Like I said no armory link so I'll give you some hints not knowing if you got that already:
ToC NH Trinket is awesome for that level, you should get that asap. In hero ToC dropps a ring which is also great if you can hold def cap without def on the ring. Sigil of Awareness is really important for your tps so you should get that first.

Hope that did help you ;)

Soz, I thought you can go to my armory link from the list under my name =S Here's link anyway: The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Jubei%27thos&n=Blayd)

Yeah, I got both ToC pieces you recommended =P Thanks for the advice on the spec, though, I'll move those points. I'll wait for some more feedback on the spec and gear.

Ok thanks for the link.
You should get some enchants on your gear, doesn't have to the best ones but you should atleast enchant your shoulders with the pvp enchant for 10k honor.
On your weapon should be this Rune (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=62158) which will help you alot with getting to the defense cap and will also give you some stamina.
You should also get another Sigil, e.g. Sigil of Awareness (TPS) (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40207) Sigil of Insolence (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47672) (Avoidance Sigil, very good but really expensive since Emblem of Triumph are rare if you don't do ToCru) or Sigil of the Unfaltering Knight (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40714) which will help you if you still got problems with def cap after Runeforging.
You have a lot of expertise which is really good, but your hit is way too low, so you should get you some Snapper Extreme (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=42996), that should help to not get into any aggro problems.
If you have a lot of gold you can get those two items from somebody who can craft Ulduar items, but they won't come cheap: Indestructable Plate Girlde (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45551) and Spiked Death Dealers (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=63192). If you can get those two items you have Best in Slot for a very long time.

Oh, yeah, I usually have SSG, must've forgotten to reapply it when I logged. I won't have the gold for those epics =\ I'll try to get one of those sigils and work to get the hit cap. Thanks again!
