RS 25 man 1/1 normal
t11 : 8/13 hc (after 4.1, as i didnt play much during then)
t12: 6/7hc + meta during 4.2, rag after
E. Describe your role in raids, as well as a possible extraordinary role on some encounters *
Up to now iv always been the tank who goes dps on 1tank fights, as i have a fairly decent Dps set, and can play frost (still room for improvement but new to dpsing)
Iv found having one blood DK as a tank in your raid is very good for fights, one example being yorshaj. My reason for this being with a 4 set bonus my vamperic blood spell will give + 20% healing to the whole raid. With this being only a minute cooldown i can use it every single time that the Oozes come in. Also for taking the stacks i have Anti magic shell which when i hit 2-3 stacks which can be alot of damage if im still tanking the boss, AMS will drop the ammount of damage i am taking significantly.
Also for hagara during her focused assault, i always make sure i have 2 uses of DS (minimum one with cooldown or callout saying i will need heavy heals). I let her focused assault take me down to around 50%, i then use 2x deathstrike which will heal me close to full and give me enough of an shield (or close, havnt done the maths just proved it works) to eat the rest of 'focused assault'
On ultraxion due to 'Last Defender Of Azeroth' buff i can use my vamperic blood once every 30seconds and it will last for 20seconds, this means for 66% of the fight you will have an extra 20% healing, also for soaking the 'Hour Of Twilight' i will have AMS, IBF and Bone Shield which puts my damage taken down to nearly nothing, this is useful especially if i have to carry on tanking ultrax straight away
Madness Of Deathwing, For times like the bomb landing or the debuff getting high when the claws health is low i have AMS, which will greatly reduce my damage taken. Not to mention having the +20% healing every minute for the tough healing parts.
F. Explain your talent/gearing/gem/stat/glyph priority choices for us *
The majority of my spec is self explanatory, but i have put 3/3 in epidemic (Increases the duration of Blood Plague and Frost Fever by 12 sec). The reason for this being it will keep my diseases up for more then 30seconds, which is the cooldown for outbreak, which means i can keep my diseases up on my enemies constantly.
i also have 1/3 in Runic Power Mastery (Increases your maximum Runic Power by 10). Other then this anything else i put that spare point in would be completely useless, but using it in this could mean the difference between being maxxed at 110 runic power or maxxed at 100 and wasting some which in the long run could be another Rune Strike while waiting on Runes.
I currently have a Decent set of gear but without a pure mastery trinket, i dont hit 200%, so for the majority of fights i do use the VP trinket, which also gives dodge on use, but when i have reached 200% mastery without it i will be using 'Indomitable Pride' and 'Soulshifter Vortex' for most fights. This will be until i get the Spine heroic trinket as i wish to test that out.
I have gemmed completely for Mastery, This is unlikely to change before the end of the expansion since it will be required to get around 200% Mastery
My reforging has mainly gone for Mastery and dodge, since i get 4% Parry off my weapon i try to even out dodge and parry as much as possible. For every parry stat i get i reforge to dodge, unless that item dosnt have mastery on it, which then it will be reforged into that.
I use glyph of Anti-Magic shell for the extra 2Seconds, it dosnt sound like to much but for fights like warlord or yorshaj it can make alot of difference. Also during the end of ultraxion when everybody takes alot more damage, it actually increases it by 4Seconds which also makes a hard healing phase that little bit easier.
Glyph of Blood Tap, if this is off CD and havnt found a time to use it (no point wasting it turning a ready blood rune into a death rune) and i suddenly have low health but DS is on CD, this can often save me by quickly using it, but if i didnt have the glyph and it caused damage to me, this could cause my death, wasting a CR or even a wipe.
Glyph of Heart Strike, For fights like warmaster, (stacking elites of one of the dragons) this will help out the dps hitting both the elites and the dragon, causing less ship damage, killing elites quicker meaning less charges, and less chance of somebody being hit. Also for multi target tanking it increases my threat.

Meet new people (meeting someone i only know over wow at Download festival soon), i am friendly and can talk to anyone. Also i have recently become a little bit of a mount and achievement addict.
i also like attend raids i maybe do not need loot from, maybe just because im bored or to help somebody out.
