    Death Strike heal

    Last night during our raid i noticed my death strike was healing for rather low ammounts. At first i thought it could be some bug with the blood shield tracker addon but looking at recount after the raid was over it confirmed my suspecions that it was only healing for the base ammount (+ scent of blood bonus).

    After the raid was over i did some tests, first running a random heroic and paying close attention to the heal ammount, which was never changed by the damage i took, only by the scent of blood.

    Then I rounded up some mobs on a questing area after taking off all my armor and again the heal ammount (both the one displayed on BST and the actual heal i got after death striking) and shield size never went up, even after the mobs took 70% of my hp in under 10 seconds.

    I haven't seen any other DK complaining about this so it itsn't a general bug, and since i believe this is handled server side it's also not something with my client. I'm not really sure what's happening so I came here searching for help and to see if there's anyone whom that ever happened to and how to "fix" it.

    I wonder if a bug has been introduced. I'm not in a position to check, but when I was healing a random mastery DK tank in LFR last night, he took a lot of damage that he didn't seem able to heal up.

    I went to south Dread Wastes and got 2 of those elite scorpion to beat on me. My life went down rather fast but the heal stayed at the minimum ammount (~37.5k). I have no idea what's causing it.

    FYI (and if we are talking about the same elite scorpion), with the daily you have an item to use on those mobs. and then "elite no more"!!!!

    I think he meant more to test the 'bug', not to kill them

    I know, I wasn't on the daily, just went there to test this out, since they hit pretty hard while still elite.
    I have unlearned my blood specialisation and then picked it up again and stil lthe same thing.
    I also deleted WTF and Cache folders (just in case ) and nothing.

    EU or US?
    I have not noticed anything post-TES Heroic release reset that's caused any issues? I'm still ridiculously OP. (Tanked Wind Lord on LFR solo, all 10 mobs at once)

    Super mega derp if this is the reason for your issue, but do you have Blood Presence on.

    haha yes i do have blood presence on
    that's on US (well techically it's a brazillian realm)

  10. #10
    Oh for reference, I'm US as well, as I said, no issues, I'll head and test now but yeah.

    And/or did you god mode it like I did trying to tank Wind Lord earlier, put on all tank gear, Blood Presence, didn't swap out of Frost spec.
    Got styled on.

    This is worrying, it appears to not be scaling outside of SoB/Vamp Blood for me as well (US)
    Can open up a stream is people want to take a peek. Not sure if I'm taking enough damage outside of a raid though, as in raid, raid boss hits like super truck + heals topping out up, = huge DS heals.

    I even tried to /sit so the scorpions would crit me (they were critting me for ~25k) and nothing, not even a 1 hp increase on the heal or shield.

    Just speculation, but didn't Blizz put in a change that's supposed to make PvP damage not raise our DS heal? Might be related to that.

    That change shouldn't be live yet (I.E. pretty sure its part of patch 5.1), but if the did hotfix it in they screwed it up big time.

    I thought it could be something related to that, that instead of turning only the pvp damage scaling off they screwed up an turned all damage scaling off, but Italiandk seems to have it working as intended.

    After further testing it's indeed not working as intended XD I have always 7% of my health heals no matter the damage I take.

    Sorry for misinformation.

    Sounds weird. I'm raiding atm, I'll watch my bloodshieldtracker to see if something is wrong.

    Playing on EU.

    Edit : Seems to be working fine here, or at least the tracker will turn green and show that I can heal for more when taking a lot of damage.

    My BST bar does indeed fill up an eventually turn green, but the ammount shown on it never changes (stays at 38k) and neither does the actual heal and shield created.

    Are we sure this isnt an addon bug displaying the wrong amount? you checked the combat log for true heal numbers?

  20. #20
    i just started leveling my dk from 85 the other day, i hope it aint bugged, i was healing for more than the mobs were damaging me, any one report it yet to blizz?
