Just to bump up this thread, the dagger guide is awesome.
As a bear, I go crafted orlok set with the sanguine dagger as my all purpose gear. My dps unbuffed is 501 without faces/vanities etc. Thats not bad for a tank and I generally manage to keep aggro throughout the boss fight.
Interestingly enough, on full sanguine, my dps is only 550. 50 dps more but my dodge takes a hit and I can't go all out on boss otherwise I get aggro everytime. (Unless there is another geared dagger bird around who knows his stuff).
The only time I go full orlok now is when I am tanking Vlad.
