View Full Version : Blood MT build: Subversion or Sudden Doom?

I have a Frost AoE tank spec, and a Blood MT spec optimized for single-target survivability and threat. The only thing I can't decide on w/ my Blood spec is 3/3 Subversion for +9% Heart Strike crit, or 3/3 Sudden Doom?

Currently I use the former b/c I don't have Morbitidy or Glyph of Dark Death, and figure buffing Heart Strike better complements Abomination's Might, Bloody Vengeance, and Blood Gorged. Thoughts?

Subversion build (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#j0EMqI0IsbMfssxhxZ0g:iGp0Mm)
Sudden Doom build (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#j0EMqI0IsbMfssxhxZ0g:iGp0Mm)

Again, the build is designed solely for survivability and threat against a single boss, and passes up AoE and other things I use my Frost spec (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#j0EGZhxx0AbIof0buzAo0x:Taw0Mm) for. TIA.

well i woud say none of them and go for scent of blood insteed and get glyph of Rune strike, for the 10% increased crit, Rune strike being the number one threat tool for dks and the exstra runic power from scent of blood boost your Death strike witch also dous a nice bit of tps.

but its up too you ofc :)

Thanks, but I don't have a threat problem w/ this build. If I ever do, I'll test the Rune Strike glyph as you recommend.

Right now I'm just trying to figure out which provides more threat, Subversion or Sudden Doom, keeping the rest of this build the same.

Got plenty of RP too, I'm able to keep that consistently above 25 to max DS, so I don't need SoB with this build.

fair dous

I would go with subvision then, thinking that you (like me :P) like too spam HS alot and with bloody strikes and might of mograin being in the build too HS will hit some nasty crits ;)

Yeah, that's what I'm leaning toward too. There's just more synergy in the build for physical damage than for spell damage. Thanks.

Get Subversion, get Glyph of Rune Strike / Vamp Blood / Death Strike.
NEVER Get Scent of Blood as Blood.
If you are having RP issues you are dumping DC too much.

That's exactly what I do now, thanks. i always try to keep my RP no less than 50%, preferably around 60%, so I have enough to use IBF or AMS and still be at or near 25% for buffed Deathstrike heals. And yeah, no SoB on my Blood Build either.
