    Blood DK - Dps rotation

    As some of you may have noticed, I'm working on a full on blood dps setup.

    I've got the gear, I've been puttzen around with in in some of our lower end raids - even while tanking I'm pushing ~25-28k dps. Ultraxion I broke 30k last week 8) 'twas fun.

    That being said, I have absolutely no IDEA what I'm doing. Obviously, my tank rotation(spam death strike til the thing dies) isn't really required, and with the introduction of Crimson Scourge into my rotation, it's got me a bit.. GCD locked.

    Basically, I'm wondering: When do you use RS, DS, and HS. Obviously Outbreak on CD, and RS to keep from capping.

    When exactly should I be using HS vs DS on a single target boss? Obviously, HS is more damage per rune, but in return it costs more GCDs - which is something I find lacking most of the time. I do find myself occasionally having an excess of GCDs if I spam DStrike, though not many. Are there any sims for things like this?

    Before anyone jumps at me for messing around with blood dps - this is primarily for speed kills, and heroic Ultraxion - where every second past the 5 minute mark is that much more risky. Tank healing on this is pretty much negligible, even on heroic(minus when blood presence bugs.. >.>).

    I recently read this article myself and found it a rather interesting read. I personally would not go blood dps but to each their own. If you are wanting to give it a go I do suggest reading this article as the author explains what he does quite well.
