    I actually have both of those trinkets and play around with them at times, but just kinda depends on what I'm doing. As for the reforges, I still notice I'm a couple hundred parry rating ahead of dodge rating when you factor in the dodge rating equivalent of the ring (190 x .41 = 77.9) and then including kings and horn of winter. You think I should just possibly drop one or the other reforges? I know if i were to switch back to the crab as my second trinket (dodge reforged mastery) it would make up any difference I have there

    You can load your character up into www.askmrrobot.com and it will take all of that into consideration (don't forget mark of the wild and it assumes +90 dodge food). Just realize right now they have expertise on a rather high stat weight so it may tell you to unforge some of your expertise pieces. You can always reduce the stat weight on expertise to fix this.

    If you switch out your trinket that totally changes things though but the site should still give you accurate parry/dodge advice.

    The four elements, like man alone, are weak. But together they form the strong fifth element: Boron.

    Gear and reforging look fine. Surprised to see someone with an IBT spec as DW but I suppose it makes sense, considering the lack of resources and downtime you may be experiencing as DW. Are you playing in UP or FP?

    You desperately need gear that will allow you to gear more into haste and mastery. The VP trinket and the TB trinket could help quite a bit, since the strength from the proc/on use equal out to make them just as good as, if not better than, your current trinkets. Also, strength to wrists.

    For me, I know I need to upgrade my chest and cloak enchants.

    assuming you're dps your gear level is ok but certain pieces don't belong. Burnt gatherings is a tank cloak, not really a dps cloak. Also, Woe Breeder's is probably better for you than Savage Beatings boots.

    Yea definitely UH, when I time Empower Rune Weapon right, it usually helps for a lot less down time, and tends to stay that way for most of the fight, if not the whole fight.

    Gear and gemming looks perfect, as well as talents and enchants. How come you're so far under the hit cap though? I don't play DW so I'm not too sure if that's a bad thing or not.

    I skipped out deepholm while levelling so now I have to grind therazane rep (ugh) and can't find anyone with +50str on bracers although I have the mats >.< as for the legs... it's expensive and I'm hoping for the ones from Captain Planet

    Seems pretty good overall 8/10 for 3 pieces of gear with no enchants :X.

    All gear pretty decent. Everything enchanted, you could get some more adequate pieces but you're ok. 9/10

    You should really get the 50 str enchant for your bracers. Its a huge difference! Also cloak and glove enchants can be upgraded.
    Furthermore, if you play unholy you can forge away more expertise in favor of some mastery and haste. If you plan on playing frost however (which is what I suggest at least until 4.2) then you need 26 expertise.

    The UH spec looks fine, but the points from Endless Winter in your secondary spec should be allocated to either crimson scourge or epidemic and scent of blood.
    Edit: If you are serious about raiding, drop Mining and get a useful 2nd Profession.

    Other than that: Good job! 8/10

    The talent Nerves of Cold Steel gives me an extra 3% hit, doesn't show on armory for some reason

    @Newti - Everything looks good to me really, I am not an expert when it comes to Blood DK's for tanking but it looks like from your current setup and accomplishments that you're doing things right! Grats on your progress and keep up the good work!

    Here is my armory for anyone who would care to rate me: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...teyes/advanced

    I see a couple of things wrong with ur gear enchants/gems atm. To start off, your MH should be Razorice and OH should be Fallen Crusader, shouldn't be no problem to switch runes.

    Second, for your Orange gems I see a couple of Str/Mastery. Not a bad choice but since stat priorities have changed in 4.1 and Haste means more than Mastery for Frost now, switch them to Str/Haste.

    I see a couple of gems that are green in your epic pieces, don't be cheap when it comes to gemming your epics, if it was just blues or greens I could see using a green gem but you got epics so at least use a blue (rare) gem, prices have gone down on them as well so no real reason not to get blue gems.

    Boot enchant should switch to Haste enchant.

    Here, maybe this will help guide you ^_^

    Two Handed Stat Priority
    Strength > Hit to Cap > Expertise to Cap > Haste > Mastery > Crit
    Duel Wield Stat Priority
    Strength > Hit to Cap > Expertise to Cap > Haste > Mastery > Crit

    Runeforges

    Dual wielding will use Rune of Razorice on their main hand with Rune of the Fallen Crusader on their offhand. If able, keep a third weapon enchanted with Rune of Cinderglacier for use in AoE scenarios.

    2H will use Rune of the Fallen Crusader.


    Your getting there though!
