It shall be done...

... that Edurol will be a BloodKnight from now on. At least for some weeks because of my raid :)

The Patchnotes and tests from the PTR as it is now, and as it seems to remain in the future builds, made my decision easier to support my raid a bit better and to try out something else.

So... stay tuned here. Maybe, sometimes, there will be a DualWield BloodKnight ;-)


New PTR Build 9658

  • Howling Blast damage has been doubled (from 259-281 to 518-562 for max rank), cooldown changed from 5 seconds to 10 seconds.
  • Frost Presence now reduces spell damage taken by 10%. (Down from 15%)
  • Guile of Gorefiend now increases damage done by your Blood Strike, Frost Strike, Howling Blast and Obliterate abilities by 5/10/15%. (Old - Critical damage only, 15/30/45%)
  • Lichborne doesn't increase the chance of your enemies to miss you anymore.
  • Dancing Rune Weapon now lasts 20 sec (up from 10sec) and last 2 (up from 1 sec) sec per 5 additional runic power but attacks for ?% reduced damage.
  • Will of the Necropolis now cannot occur more often than once every 15 sec.
  • Might of Mograine now increase all damage done by your Blood Boil, Blood Strike, Death Strike, Heart Strike, and Obliterate abilities by 3/7/10%. (Old - Critical damage only, 10/20/30%)
  • Vampiric Blood cooldown has been increased from 1 min to 2 min.
  • Blade Barrier now decrease damage taken by 1/2/3/4/5% for 10 sec.
  • Bone Shield cooldown has been increased from 1min to 2min.
  • Ghoul Frenzy cooldown has been removed.
  • Blood-Caked Blade proc limitation has been removed. (Old - This effect cannot occur more often than once every 3 sec.)
  • Outbreak now Increases the damage of Plague Strike by 10/20/30% (Down from 15/30/45%) and Scourge Strike by 7/13/20%. (Down from 10/20/30%)
  • Necrosis now affects all your auto attacks. (Old - Only Main-Hand)

Seems that BCB and Necrosis now remain viable for DualWield, but the change to HB seems a bit strange... now with 10 sec CD? How should that work? It is only usable once per mobgroup because of the rune CD... I don't really get that one. Do you?
