Hello everybody. Recently I have leveled up my DK to 85 and achieved a item lvl of 229 and started on heroics. Now I have read upon elitist jerks and I know how Gargoyle works. And reading this I am assuming you know how aswell. Now onto my question. There are 4 good trinkets in my mind which trinkets to aim for.

-Proc trinkets
1) http://www.wowhead.com/item=56393#comments ( Heart of Solace )
2) http://www.wowhead.com/item=56431 ( Right eye of Rahj )

-On use trinkets
1) http://www.wowhead.com/item=56345 ( Magnetite Mirror )
2) http://www.wowhead.com/item=56285 ( Might of the Ocean )

Now i chose these trinkets for a reason because Heart of Solace is amazing haste and a extremely good proc. Right eye of Rahj is good asweel and the hit rating can be reforged to Haste if hit capped via gear or other reforgement and also has a amazing proc. Magnetite Mirror is also good because the expertise rating can be reforged out and has a good on use effect and same goes for Might of the Ocean. Now I know most of my "Nuke" comes from my cooldowns. In perfect reality I would want to use my Gargoyle during Bloodlust, Unholy Frenzy, Proc trinkets proc, on use trinkets effect, 1250 str potion, fallen Crusader affect. I track all of the procs I have at the moment via addon Needtoknow. It shows whenever what I put in procs. But I talked to some other DK from my server and they recommend 2 on proc trinkets some recommend On use trinkets. I would like to ask you guys what is the Cooldown after a trinket procs. In my personal opinion I would say 1 on proc and 1 on use trinket but I would like to hear from you guys. Thanks.

I used the heart (still do) and the eye. The cd on proc'd trinkets are lower than on use trinkets by about twenty to 30 seconds.

For overall dps I prefer proc trinkets for fights where a heavy heavy burn isn't needed. I would use the on use trinkets for fights with heavy burn phases. So on use for fights like magmaw where every so often he takes more dmg, and I would use proc trinkets for fights that don't have burn phases.
That's just my 2 copper.
