Not a big fan of his blood spec at all, imo he's missing two key dps talents.
Butchery and Sudden Doom
It's the thought that counts, not how many people die because of it.

I prefer my Blood spec. Its prolly crap looking, but it keeps me alive and i can easily aggro, kill, and walk away with full life 8 mobs at once.

Just my opinion :P

I hear that a lot aden, but have you tried unholy?


IMO people who say blood can aoe as good as unholy, haven't attempted it as unholy. The blood tree simply lacks any improved aoe abilities while unholy has two very strong aoe talents.

This turns your blood runes into death runes after you blood boil, allowing you to death strike twice in a row. More healing power = more mobs.

I am still trying to figure out exactly what all it counts as a disease, but apparently as unholy you can have 4 diseases up on a mob, making your death strikes and blood boils very powerful. (not sure if http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=49032 counts)

ah, ok - apparently Unholy blight used to count as a disease, but they changed it.

I played as frost for a while at first. I liked it. But then I did a respec to blood to try it out. DPS improved quite a bit (50 - 100 DPS right off the bat before even regearing towards blood) and there are all kinds of things to help you regen health. I haven't tried unholy yet, but out of the 2 specs I have tried, I really think blood is best for leveling and DPS so far (was doing over 800 in UK with my shitty gear and a tank that wouldn't stand still).
Shhh! Theres a dead horde in my trunk. Wanna see it? Fuck around and you'll be it.
