Default [Bleed Caster] Harvester of Blood - A Player Scaled Pet based Bleed Harvest Death Knight

Use eye bleach if you decide to open the spoilers. Let's begin.

Spoiler!


Deathstalker Setup - https://www.grimtools.com/calc/vNQeGAjN
Massacre Setup - https://www.grimtools.com/calc/gZwKY0nZ


NOTE:-

This guide might need a little explanation.
Before anyone bothers, Warder should work with this concept, am testing it. Ritualist with this concept sucks and Witchblade is unlikely to work either

Might post a second build before updating this guide.

Why not 1 point in BH transmuter? Phys to cold seems negligible here. Anyway, nice build. As expected, Blood Knight js good for bleed.

Btw, I'm witchblade fan so I would always think that witchblade would work but s&b instead of 2h. Howl of wendigo + csgo shield looks great.

The Physical to Cold is why I didn't bother testing it. I got my hands on the set yesterday night so didn't test everything out 100%
Will do and let you know later on

Witchblade won't work because it has nothing like bone harvest to contribute to the damage of the build itself. I only tested Ritualist and am testing Warder so I based my conclusions on that.

Btw, before anyone asks - Massacre ticks>Deathstalker ticks for some reason

Testing itself was done with Deathstalker in slot cause I've been wanting to build around the pet for quite some time now

Still hoping for s&b on witchblade to work well I'll have to test it once I get home.

Massacre has flat bleed and more than double the bleed on the granted skill compared to deathstalker. Can't do calcs here but 10% rr isn't probably better than that

Make sense

And yes Harvester of Death is indeed a DPS boost

Nice build!

Glad you got all pieces of the set. Do you plan to make more experiments with DK?

P.S: Hope I finally will get the blueprint on the helm in near time.

Well having RL friends play GD pays off. I still don't have single Radaggon piece nor do I have Kra'vall's Shoulders with good rolls on me yet but since I have Rimetongue Set as well I don't feel like complaining.

As for experiments I already am conudcting this is the second concept with the build.

I got your point. However, since I started leveling up my vitality DK long time ago before the patch release I want the full set so bad.
You can try to "gamble" with Bella Fald to get piece of Radaggon set if needed.
