In beta they pruned Heart Strike. Because its still beta I want to present an alternative with a reworked Heart Strike and see if there is support for such a build.
For this alternative build I changed a few spells:
Heart Strike: hits two targets. First target takes 100% damage, second target takes 50% damage. This will be your strongest attack.
Outbreak: cooldown 25 seconds. This will be the go-to button to put up your diseases.
Icy touch / Plague Strike: removed.
The introduction to the most important spells of a blood deathknight would then look like this:
Death Strike: your most important tanking spell. Use whenever possible. Does good damage, heals you and gives you a blood shield that absorbs incoming melee damage.
Heart Strike: your strongest attack on single targets. Hits a second target for half damage.
Outbreak: Use to put up diseases on your enemy.
Blood Boil: spreads and refreshes your diseases on enemies and does a fair amount of damage. Does the most damage when tanking groups of enemies.
Death Coil: a ranged attack spell that does a fair amount of damage. Use this spell to spend your runic power.
Rune Tap: Reduces damage taken for 3 seconds. Use this spell when you are on low health or expect a lot of incoming damage.
Pruned spells: Pestilence, Raise Dead, Necrotic Strike, Rune Strike, Icy touch and Plague Strike.
Question: wich build you like more? The build on beta with the removal of Heart Strike or this build?
