It's over 6000 DPS!! (only with luck of the draw), A dual wield DK build

Post  DehNutCase on Sun Apr 11, 2010 9:15 am

I had nothing better to do but play with RAWR, so i tried to find the highest DPS build for DK, (Since if it does something insane, like 6k dps in blues, i want to have a easy time leveling.)

Why you go dual wield with a frost and unholy hybrid rather than a conventional build:
Your auto attack will let you deal around 2.5k DPS, im not kidding, as long as you can right click the boss and then follow him as you watch a movie or something, you will get at least that much damage in. This is due to the sheer amount of necrosis and blood caked blade procs, as well as the 1k dmg your ghoul gives. While this build lacks strong aoe dmg, it more than makes up for it with it's insane single target DPS, I am fairly sure this would be one of the top DPS, if not the top dps build out of any race(allied)/class/talent cominbation.

And now, if you are ready, here are the components to this insane build:

The talent build:

Rotation:
In progress
Seems to be a basic priority system:
Use diseases (Icy Touch, Plague Strike)
Use Frost Strike with killing machine proc
Use Bbliterate
Use Heart Strike
Use Frost Strike
(If theres absolutely nothing to do, use Horn of Winter, Rune Tap, Empower Rune Weapon and the like and just stick to the priority system.)

Gemming:Everything to STR, ignore socket bonuses.
If you can't get these, a fairly good rule of thumb is to just mass STR on every single piece, remember that each socket equates to 16 str, you do NOT need to reach the hit cap, missing a ability merely means you're going to reuse it next GCD if it was a rune ability, so just stack STR so what does hit hurts, not only that, STR also boosts ghoul DPS. This doesn't mean that you want to have every green of the STR items, just use STR as the guideline for picking pieces of the same ilvl, so if you have two pieces for the same slot, use the one with more STR on it. Since we don't go blood for Bladed Armor, a leather piece with good STR and other stats could work just as well as a plate piece, but RAWR doesn't handle those.
Misc Info:
Race: Human (Dwarfs might work if you can find two decent maces.But human seems superior.)
Professions: Jewlerycrafting + Blacksmithing (still STR gems)
Consumables: Potion of Speed (remember to double pot), STR food, Flask of Endless Rage
CDs:
Ghoul: Summon it Whenever it dies, preferably in a situation where you can't do anything else, but don't delay the resummoning too long, remember it's around 20% of your total dps.
Army of the Dead: Spam it whenever it is up, preferably with the haste pot(using the double pot trick means you will use it right before you get into combat and then during a transition or if there are none, just whenever it affects your dps the least. Assuming the fight lasts more than 6 minutes)
Raid Buffs:
Everything ticked, where there is a dispute, the superior one with talented bonuses is taken, ie. Strength of Earth totem versus Horn of Winter, Totem can be upgraded with talents, totem choosen, talented.
Naturally i will do tests on this once i level a DK to 80.

That's a very impressive amount of damage.

To compare I took my current setup and ran it through Rawr v2.3.15 with every available raid buff (unlikely as that may be), as well as Luck of the Draw.

It rated me at 5194 DPS (6 minute fight time), with the following breakdown.

White: 924.86
SS: 893.44
Ghoul: 612.83
DC: 574.07
BS: 449.99
FF: 424.66
BP: 353.88
Garg: 342.55
BCB: 156.60
Necrosis: 128.39
PS: 121.47
IT: 90.30
Other: 63.49 (Grenades and Pyro Rockets I hope)
UB: 57.41

I am confused as to how your Ghoul computed at 1k DPS while mine is only valued at 600. I've got my Ghoul-boosting talents, and I consider my character to be complete minus the 54 Str I'll gain once I pick up JC.

Are you sure you have Glyph of the Ghoul?
If you do, then the most likely reason is simply that my build has more str multipliers, in addition to Ravenous Dead which gives 3% str, it has Endless Winter, which gives 4%, as well as Unbreakable Armor, which gives 20% str during it's duration, which works out to 6.67% since it lasts for 20s per minute. In addition to that, because my build is dual wielding, I have two Runes of the Fallen Crusader. And due to Threat of Thassarian almost every special attack i use triggers the off hand to attack as well as the main hand, and if it's working like how i assume it's working, that means the chances for the Rune of the Fallen Crusader to trigger is doubled, and it gives 15% str while activated. (This is why i took BS JC, since theyre the only two profs that give STR.)
Note the huge amount of STR
Strength: 2,160

Frost Fever: 260.06
Frost Strike: 829.59
Gargoyle: 0.00
Heart Strike: 0.00
Howling Blast: 169.13 (Not supposed to be here, but i used a different simulator and the DPS is made up elsewhere anyway.)
Icy Touch: 132.04
Necrosis: 223.58
Obliterate: 844.17
Death Strike: 0.00
Plague Strike: 97.36

Yup, my whole profile is on the armory: http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=The%20Forgotten%20Coast&n=Abrogate

I just imported it directly into Rawr.

You do have a massive edge on me for Str, Rawr says I've got just 1,613. I guess that's a big part of it. Most impressive.

5,897 AP
39.64% Crit
92 ArPen
7.85% Haste
Attacks have a 2.26% chance to be dodged (0 miss)

I swapped my spec to yours and weapons to match, and put in 3 JC gems. That got me up to 5473 projected DPS. I'm not ready to commit to dropping all my hit and expertise for haste and ArPen just yet, but I guess I should look into getting that second Stormstrike Mace.

Here's what I'm considering: http://www.wowhead.com/profile=21305052
Not too different from my actual toon.

As an aside, using a much more conservative buff list, my initial profile is rated at 4608 DPS, the altered profile is only 4449. Obviously there's enormous potential for fluctuation there with raid comp, gear, etc, but you should try running your talent/gear set through some 10-man raid scenarios, especially based on the 80s available.

I constructed a fictional 10-man raid and included Heroic Presence, Flask of Endless Rage, and double speed pots along with these buffs/debuffs:

Prot Warrior (Sunder Armor, Battle Shout)
Prot Paladin (Imp Devo Aura, BoK)
UH DK (Horn of Winter, Ebon Plaguebringer, Crypt Fever)
Blood DK (Abomination's Might)
Arcane Mage (Arcane Empowerment)
Destro Lock (Blood Pact)
Combat Rogue (Savage Combat)
Resto Druid (Imp MotW, Faerie Fire)
Resto Shaman (Heroism, WF Totem, Stoneskin Totem)
Disc Priest (Imp PW:F)
