Topic Blood dk mastery cap?
Edited by Örinä on 03/05/12 17:46 (BST)
Hi. How much mastery I need as a blood dk? Atm I got 3,15k or 3,6k with vp trinket(totally 6k with Soulshifter proc), 22% parry and 19% dodge with dodge trinket from Spine, without 16%. Morchoc hc is on farming and we are started practising Unsleeping hc. Should I keep getting more mastery pieces or change some mastery pieces into a avoidance?

On faceless ones go actually more stamina based set up since the majority of inc. damage is magical.
Also there's no such thing as traditional mastery cap for DK's. But there's such value as "DS per minute" and it is just about the player if they can maximise it and the optimal value to mastery is between 4200 to 4600-ish mastery, without trinkets. It's relative to the DS you as player can do as well incoming Physical damage.
It's a long 'theory', but simple rule of the thumb is : if its mainly magical focus stamina, if its mainly physical balance mastery and stamina. And there's no such fight in DS that would be most optimal with full mastery set (I personally simmed and tested gear with 5600 mastery and the results were quite clear in my opinion).
Here is some new info:
Optimal dodge + parry rating, taken from mastery.
Dodge rating 3361 = 20,27% = +4,4%
Parry rating 3585 = 25,04% = +3,1%
Mastery rating 1998= 19,14 = -9,50( -1690 rating) points. The amound of Blood Shield is down from 24,8k to 16,7k.
its based on the fight.
easy way to find out what is best to use is like this.
magic dmg = stamina ( bloodshield parry/dodge armor doesn;t work on magic dmg look at unsleeping)
phisical dmg you need mastery parry/dodge /armor
since mastery is our best state there is no real cap for it
the key mostly is to get insanely much of 1 of our states ( stamina or mastery)
most end game ppl go for full stamina ( there healers are geared and got content on farm)
if you are still progressing i would advice you to go full mastery
