Tend to use Dancing Rune Weapon to get up to 10 stacks of Bone shield in a quick and efficient amount of time and then just follow normal rotation using bloodrinker off of cooldown.

My class is a class which is well suited to reactively healing damage back which it has suffered opposed to other tanks such as a Brewmaster and Protection Warrior which are more inclined to proactively refuce the amount of incoming damage which it takes.
This leads to the blood death knight being more effective at large strikes which deal most of their damage over a short period of time to allow myself to more efficiently heal back the damage which has been inflicted. The main way that I do this is by pooling an appropriate amount of runic power to make sure that any damage sustained can be mitigated efficiently and effectively but ensuring that i do not overgenerate runic power by using death strike before I cap Runic power to gain a slight increase in dps for less optimal mitigation.
Another strength of blood is that it can be quite effective at taking magic damage due to Anti Magic Shell making death knight one of the strongest magic mitigators, this is further excelled in when blood takes a mixture of damage from both physical and magical sources at the same time as they can effectively deal with both sources easily and effectively.
A place where Blood can be at weakness is a long string of incoming damage over a long duration e.g. A long dot, in this scenario a tank like a brewmaster may be more preferabble
Please list your current stat priority (screenshots of your character profile on SimCraft/RaidBots will also suffice), and then explain the benefits of each stat for your specialisation, making sure to include any softcaps or breakpoints you are aiming for
Haste as it lets a blood death knight generate runic power more often to use for death strike
Vers as its flat mitigation
Crit is a luxury stat which can be aimed towards for high dps
Mastery is pretty much useless as blood shield is extremely weak
Please list your current talent setup, without abbreviations, detailing for each row whether the choice changes for Single Target, Cleave, and AoE
Death Knight talents in certain branches of the talent tree are quite weak whilst others can be situationally effective given the encounter.
An example of this is in most encounters in the game you would go with Will of the Necropolis as a lot of the time damage intake isnt rapid enough to warrant the other two options but in cases where damage intake is too great you would change to Rune Tap if an encounter has a lot of tank busters which need to be mitigated or use Anti-Magic Barrier if there is a crazy amount of magic damage.
For Frost talents are the exact same on every boss this tier
An important note: failure to play optimal specialisations may result in loss of raid spot/being sat. Please confirm you have acknowledged this

What is your opinion on sitting during progression (potentially for multiple bosses)?
I am completely okay with sitting out during an encounter as it is important to understand and realise that a certain class may not be ideal/viable for certain encounters/
What is your opinion on Private vs Public logging?
Depends on the guild i have no personal preference however its always a nice feeling being able to brag about amazing parses
Please list your previous guilds and a brief reason for leaving each of them (current expansion)
The guild im in currently Mithra are progressing at an ok rate however the main thing which is holding this guild back is the fact that there are clear underperformers in the group in regards to both damage and their mechanical skill and no effort is being made to improve/replace these members.
Why have you chosen to apply to Weeping Angels?
Looks like a guild which has a much more professional raiding environment than what i am currently experiencing and feel like i can use my own skills to better myself and help those around me progress their own characters.
