    New to Blood DK - UI help

    Hey undead cousins, I've decided to try Deaf Knight tanking and I'm looking for some help regarding rune/resource display.

    I would like an addon that will show:
    Runes (and cooldown) in a simple way - nothing especially fancy.
    Runic Power
    Blood Tap charges (if possible)
    Blood Strike Heal/Shield potential

    Don't mind if it's multiple addons or just 1 that does it all but there are a lot of them out there so I need your recommendations on the best and easiest to use.
    Steam: dartagnus or Valarius | GW2: Valarius.9437 | WoW: Valarius#2649
    Let's play!

    has quite an extensive list of addons a blood dk could use.

    I use Docs Debug Runes for runes and runic power.
    I use blood shield tracker for death strike estimates and my blood shield amount.
    Weakauras for anything else, such as blood tap charges, spell cooldowns, procs such as purgatory.

    Might as well use WA for that as well while you're at it.

    afaik you cant track estimated heals with WA, could be wrong tho

    If you're using/going to use WA then this thread is a great place to start for bits and bobs or even all in one ui solutions for blood.

    Other than that I would recommend DDR for runes and blood shield tracker for the heal tracking.

    You can, but it's very convoluted. I had a version working at some point but I stopped working on it as personally I find Blood Shield estimations to be somewhat inaccurate due to combat log delay.

    If anyone is interested I still have most of the code lying around.

    I use vexpower for rune tracking. The addon works with every class and is my goto resource management for everything.
