Death Strike buff for DK Tanks

There has been a buff to Blood DK’s talent of Improved Death Strike – it now provides 40/80/120% bonus damage, up from 30/60/90%, and a 10/20/30% critical strike bonus, up from 3/6/9% (source).

This would not affect Blood Shield (I assume – as it is inbound damage not outbound that is used in the calc), or affect threat beyond the additional threat caused by the damage applied.

This seems good, I like any buff. The hotfix now applied to live realms as at 19 July 2011. If Death Strike’s Bloodshield would persist a few seconds longer I’d be happier still.

I didn’t note any major issue, but then I only really tank when we’re very short of actual Tanks these days. There area few other sources which have requests for this, dating back a long while. Some folks don’t believe this is real at all.

Weekly Hate: Pally who dont Buff

Quick one today, my new pet hate is Pallys who won’t buff, won’t respond to psts, and generally act like they bring nothing to the raid. Even when I play my undergeared pally – I frigg’n buff!

Case in point was the weekly raid this week: Sarth. I know its a cake walk, but not giving a shit about fellow players is just poor form. Thank you to the raiders who understood that not all Paladins who pug runs are selfish mongrels; just most of them.

Grrrr.
