    tanking challenge modes

    In case anyone was still concerned with Blood DKs in Challenge Modes, the first group to clear Gold in all the 5-mans had 2 blood DKs.

    You can also see that a bunch of the top challenge mode progression rankings are held by DKs (not sure if blood or not).

    Yes, Gorefiend's Grasp is extremely useful in challenge modes to group up mobs so they can be rotated AE stunned. Lots of people try to run without a real healer for most of the dungeon to shave off time and blood's self-healing is particularly well-suited to that too.

    Having cleared all of the gold Challenge Modes just tonight, I can say Remorseless Winter is literally one of the most useful abilities any class can bring to challenge modes; the six second AoE stun is unprecedented and the only thing that even comes close is the Capacitor Totem from Shaman. The two combined have saved my life (and others' too) more times than I can count and I very strongly recommend any DK running Challenge Modes to get RW.

    Grats, very impressive!

    WW monks can actually AE stun for nine seconds every 45s using leg sweep and fists of fury, and they have no ramp-up to their stuns. That's even more insane.

    TY Vareesa. As I have been saying GG is situationally usefull, while Remorseless winter is damn near allways useful.
