All the quote-splitting is unnecessary.
I'm currently going to try both meta-achievements on Lich King 10m encounter (last for our drakes), and I'm considering changing build for max AoE during last phase (non-exploding Vile Spirits). Ofcourse the only way of damaging them (and applying ebon plaguebringer) for DK is using Pestilence while they spawn. Now, assuming I meanage to reach and DoT all of them
You won't be able too
I'm trying to get my build and gear as good as possible for AoE (DoT damage). I'm considering use of 4pc t9 and AP trinket (245 Death's Choice) instead of ArP trinket (277 Deathbringer's Will) and 4pc t10 (and ofc crit meta instead of agi one). Now, I also consider changing my build a bit to boots DoT damage (as single-target DPS requirements are joke in 10m anyways).
While I won't say you should not do it, I did the achivement with my regular trinkets DBW 264 and 258 deaths choice with agility meta gem (changing meta is marginal and should not be a concern) I used my 4 x tier 10, I mean considering the massiv strength boost and the 3% damage from the 4 set. I am pretty sure this will rival your crit from 4 x tier 9. Also consider that someone has to do single target dps or the encounter will never end here just keeping your regular gear and spec will be beneficial aswell
[note: I'm the only person who can actually slow Valkyries during p2 so Desecration is must-to-take]
First of all it's 10 man, there is no need what so ever to spec into Desercration, you can just chains of ice it.
secondly thats not true you said yourself you got a shadowpriest & a fire mage both of which has very nice slows (mind flay will be the best option here) fair better then you specing some semi retarded spec when he can just use his "main nuke" not knowing the rest of your setup I would guess there is other slow options (frost shock forexample) and multiple of stuns. it's one add .. one! trust me it's handable without you respecing.
I'm not sure if 10% damage from both diseases (Black Ice) actuually wins over 2 extra points in Bladed Armor (more AP scaling with disease damage) and extra 5% crit for Blood Plague (assuming use of 4p t9). Cold logic says it is, but I cant get calculator to confirm or deny it for some reason :|. Any opiniony or advices?
sub blood is better then sub frost, if you read the TOC unholy thread that was made obvious in there.
We run setup with only 3 ranged, and just 2 of them (spriest and fire mage) being strong at AoE, so my diseases support is very usefull. It's gonna be RLY rng-based for us as any ranged being ported to Frostmourne means mostly like explidong spirits.
We did this with two more ranged (a warlock & a resto shaman going elemental) and I would strongly sugest you sit a melee for a warlock as SoC is ace here.
on our first port it was our spriest (our best aoe) and we still got all the sprits down so it is doable with 3 but if you get a ranged ported you are screwed. Do yourself a favor bring an extra ranged! Also you will/should use chains of ice alot on these it is amazingly usefull and buys your ranged much time as they start to come down chains them. Alittle sidenote elemental shamans can knock them back.
I wish you good luck, but I strongly sugest bringing more ranged dps, and use only 2 healers.
the drakes are worth it my friend.
