Heart Strike vs Blood Boil



So I've been spending a bit more time with the death night recently so I started getting carried away with the numbers. Without getting deep into some of the stuff I've been doing, I thought I'd share some high level Heart Strike vs Blood Boil comparison.

The basics of this is, Blood Boil scales with AP (and therefore Vengeance) and Heart Strike is not. Plus Blood Boil does equal damage to all targets while Heart Strike does 50% less for each target. Therefore, there are magic points where one is better than the other. Here are the numbers.

My Average Weapon Damage: 31170

Targets BB AP Required
  1. 214,794
  2. 152,325
  3. 110,679
  4. 82,047

Essentially what it comes down to is how many targets are going to hit, how much AP do you have and what is the average damage on your weapon.

To see a more in depth spreadsheet of the basic, take a look at this spreadsheet:

SoO - Heroic 10 - Paragon of the Klaxxi

<Memoirs> - Heroic 10 - Paragons of Klaxxi

I have really been looking forward to everyday of progression on this fight and from the video, bear + scorpion is pewpew fun. Essentially what make this extremely powerful is the scorpions abilities are based off ap (vengeance) plus the combo with Nature's Vigil buff to damage and the healing from damage. 

Enjoy, I did!

Solo Bear Adventures - Spreadsheet

Solo Bear Adventures - Part I - Hagara N25 + Ragnaros H10

The other day, it came to my attention that there exists a spreadsheet of what warlocks can solo... so begins Solo Bear Adventures.

Yes, I know that bears aren't the best for soloing. We're no warlocks or blood dks, but none the less let the adventure begin.

I've basically set everything to red and am turning them green as I do them. Note that just because they're red doesn't mean it's not possible, just haven't done it yet.

Bear Proving Grounds - Endless Tank Wave 34

Finally got around to putting in a couple hours to do a 30 wave of the Endless Tank Proving Grounds. Not overly difficult and definitely a little gimmicky but fun.

I did actually enjoy these, the only down fall, 30 min attempts. You can see how this becomes an afternoon project when you doing a half dozen attempts.
