    Hey there guys,
    i'm new to DK' class. I just lvled one to 55, and now i'm trying to find a good and funny build. I know that the q7 one is The best, but i need know:
    1) is q4 set viable?
    2) wich kind of other set can i a put toghether q4?
    3) I was thinking about blood moon 2h sword. It gives 100% more dmg on item permanently (q7 give 150% but only for 3 sec after earthquacke), and it ask just 1 item set, in this way i've all item slot free.
    Let me know any tips, above all how maximize q4 set dmg, that i feel intresting playing style.
    Thanks ;)

    With q4 you deal maybe 1/3 of the damage less and against the other ranged classes (wizards and archers) you have with q7 half the damage, against a dwarf - 3 times the damage!

    You can understand for yourself that if they do not balance the classes and items there is no alternative to q7 and in any case you are penalized compared to the other classes and I keep myself low!

    The OPness of Q7 comes from the speed bonus set on smash, not from the +150% damage; I'm using Q4 because I like more base average damage but is a fact that if you can use Q7 buff quite often (and with the CD cool down runes you can) the output damage of Q7 is higher than Q4.
    But if you are starting to search for uniques and you have to made a build from scratch, you can try and choose the set that better fit your playstyle.
    But in this game, if you want to do damage as DK, you need Q7.
    EDIT: 2) offensive Dragan for sure; for the other items depend on what you are searching for.
    3) blood moon weapon+dragan give you the best base damage, but with higher tier, and most of all with using set bonus from Q4 and Q7, this weapon have too lower damage respect the other two weapons.

    The difference between sets q4 and q7 is greater than the r220 and the new infernal inf5-7!

    The damage is excessive, you have to block and kill the mobs in a short time with q4 does not work the same applies to the bosses of the q!
    The weapon of the blood moon with its malus is the worst thing for a melee class, in fact it works well with the wizard!

    Actually that is totally invalid as we have 1 second cooldown on potions now.

    As for how to max damage on q4 you need the easter set which will also allow you to reach 4.00 critical damage with a lot of ease.
    To maximize q4 damage you also have to craft your cloak with 4x speed and go full plat attack speed gloves.

    The easter set also works awesomely with the bloodrune weapon
    what makes bloodrune weapon so omnipotent is that the description is wrong it gives 100% weapon damage which acts as a multiplier just like 3 dragan pieces.

    And yes you will have much higher damage with bloodrune and also perfect speed
    thing about bloodrune is though that you need blue royals in your weapon to have insane damage.
    another way to increase the damage from bloodrune lies in crafting your gloves with 3-4 damage on this item and inserting jewels of coalescence into them. <- which is viable as the base attack speed of bloodrune is good.

    no one is actually going to farm infernal 7 as it doesnt give you any good rewards, so no players is going to do events permanently on infernal 7.

    I am mentioning this as an added answer, reason being you have full t10 and blue royal gems q7 might be fastest but heck you can even use prem weapon and slaughter inf4 and do good dmg on i5 if you have the crit.

    Another viable build methodology would be using the ghost shield with 3x ghost gems especially when they release legendary gems, reason being that you can attain about 50k dmg on 1h and when the gwenfara buff kicks in go to about 65k dmg on 1h

    You will have to craft gloves with 4x idoti so as to make up for the huge dmg gap.

    But ya thats whats viable as a whole in the game atm.

    However for you to attain the needed stats the faster you farm the faster your build grows which is why q7 is essential for all dks except me xD

    Something like Q7> Q4> BM. Earthquake is very useful on the map and as Gbit said, Q7 has the speed advantage. Q4 is the best option after Q7.

    1H is too weak, even with the best setting you are dealing max 1/2 damage compared to Q7, so double time to kill and double use of essences, this is bad. :)

    I only partially share your thoughts, unfortunately the Dk is highly unbalanced on the q7 set and the changes made to the game make the other sets impractical! One of the reasons is the slowness of the class in the map farm and believe me that it is not fun in the group, from bosses with R220 they are full of armor and you have to do fast damage with maximum damage and move because even in inf3 you don't have enough defense, a another class problem!

    The new set is good for Q4 but we lose the defense and go back to the first speech!

    I have been using q4 for a long time and some skill changes have been good with the r214 on the q4 set but they are marginal and they worked before the r220 for various reasons and you have to see how the group game has been changed!

    I agree that inf7 is not convenient, but those t10 still help at the moment, because there are problems that are called bad damage and bad defense of this class!

    In all honesty I finished developing the q4 set, it should have helped you play better in a group and have more defense!

    Well, group play with Dk skills is rubbish! Boss resistances have increased and Dk skills are not working well, boss damage is too much in a melee class!

    Consequently you feel bad in a group and alone, already with q7 and with q4 it is simply worse!

    Obviously I like to play with the set of q4 and the game style I prefer, but at the moment I am forced to give up it has too many problems!
