Has anyone had a chance to play around on the PTR? I'm curious about hp/dual wield/unholy blight...

Anyone tried tanking as blood on the PTR? The upcoming nerfs seem very heavy for threat-output.

Could Rune Tap crit before this patch? It crits all the bloody time now - very nice surprise.

My DK is in heroic/crafted blues/epics with 1 to 2 Naxx 10 pieces.

He was leveled to be dps/PvP but has since been dps/tank PvE to play with my friends because my tankadin needed nothing from heroics anymore.

I specced Frost for last night. Boy does my butt hurt. I lost nearly 7% HP, not sure the exact amount of DR from armor - a noticeable amount, and was really feeling the IBF nerf.

With the badge change and some of the new 5-man rewards, I have some incentive to use my Paladin to tank with that group... but at my gear level, I felt pretty darn squishy last night on my DK. I'm simply rotating CDs on trash rather than keeping one in reserve for 'oh crap' moments and dps was dying because of the attention I required from the healer.

Small query regarding the new Frost DW - Are we tanking with tank or dps 1-handers? Considering that DKs are balanced with dps weapons normally and threat can be an issue, it seems a valid question.

Nevermind, it isn't critting at all. Both my MSBT and Recount show it as crits, even though it's healing the correct amount every single time.

Looks like my post was lost in the rollback.

I noticed recently playing my DK that even though he is specced 2/3 points in Scent of Blood, he's always getting three charges on the buff when it procs - the tooltip for 2/3 states that he should get it for 2 swings, not 3. Is this a bug, or something to do with all the changes and slow tooltip updates this talent keeps getting?

So what, then, does the number of points in the talent currently change?

Uhmmmmmmmm, either the amount of Runic Power you get per swing or the chance for it to proc. I'm not entirely sure, since I've been tanking as Blood who doesn't really need the RP, so doesn't spec it.

I think I had one point in it... A long, long time ago :) I'd consider picking it up just to do even more stupid threat on Algalon (my rune strikes are actually resource limited there), but I generally don't need it at all.

I have a talent question for you guys. I am currently 13/54/0, would it benefit me more to spec into unholy for the extended disease time, SS crit, spell hit, and DnD cool down as opposed to my blood talents?

I'm still pretty fresh at 80 but I can tank any heroic no problem, the Paltress is the only one who gives me trouble and that's more or less a health issue.

My armory link is tied to my signature, any advice or information would be appreciated. Thanks :D

I'm gunna assume that post's a joke, playing into the stereotype of Death Knights being fairly retarded.
