So I'm leveling a Blood DK (71 right now), and I've noticed that Blood Boil's damage is ridiculous compared to what it used to be back in WOTLK and Cata. So much so that I never, ever use Heart Strike as BB against diseased targets does more than 3x the damage HS does (not to mention refreshing diseases, more than three targets, etc.. Does HS ever catch up / surpass BBs damage? If so, when?

Thanks a bunch.
It's my money and I NEED IT NOW!!

I was wondering the same thing. I'm at 82 and I still never use HS.

It depends on your weapon. BB scales directly with attack power, and is rather badly balanced at low levels. HS scales with your weapon DPS. Once your weapon's DPS is high enough, you'll see it flip around. It won't be until the 80s, though, so you have quite a lot of blood boil spamming to go.

Most abilities that don't scale from weapon DPS are like that, oddly enough.

Course, at 90, if you have enough mobs(say, the trashpacks before the third boss of Jade Serpent Temple), you'll use BB anyways.

Yeah at 90 you'll be using HS if you're up against 2-3 mobs and BB if 4+.
Please change your vector and move to a different coordinate because this quadrant is off limits.
