hi there ppz.since the very first post i have been following this thread.as in 3.0.8 i am using the ownage HB spec.since in 3.1 blizz nerfing mostly HB spec but totally dw, we all are trying to come up with some new and creative builds.
i tried over 10 different specs and yet there are 5 specs that i could not try cuz of BotN,it is not giving death runes as far as i know.beside these,i noticed that almost all of the spec tests are being run in ebon hold where is crowded like hell with tons of diseases.i am not sure those dps values that close to reality.i am using other cities heroic dummies for spec tests.
anyway...i saw desecration is being taken by all unholy builds.i think i had read on some blue post all dks standing on desecrated area gonna benefit it and since no stacking which means in stationary fights 1 unholy dk will be ok and in mobile fights we already will not be able to stand even on our own desecrated area.the other thing is that ebon plage gonna stack for %3 dmg increase.i need confirmation on these two points.
for another matter, almost all HB specs currently have imp icy talons or any other frost dps specs..we all know it gives constant %5 haste to ourselves.now,around %12 haste is the optimum gear stat for dw.so,if we do not get imp icy talons does it mean we have to rise our haste rating by %5 which is almost equal 165 rating?just did a small test for 2mins 5sec; with imp icy talons 176 swings and w/o imp icy talons 170 swings.
after these subjests i want to share all the specs i tested with their dps in different cities but ebon hold.i will post here those which i found better useablity and competative dps.btw i did not use racial,hystria,gargoyle,trinket,any raid buff,any class buff if i have in that spec.you may do higher dps cuz,i think, i was infront of the dummy not at his back.so i got dodge/parry and i have latency like 90 all the time.
