Need help getting more dps out of Unholy

7 posts in this topic

So i am a 657 i lvl unholy DK.  Depending on the encounter usualy signle target i maintian 20-22k dps. and i feel like i should be doing alot better. I have compared my sellf against other DKs on wowcraftlogs and i am in the bottom 15% or so.

I used the simcraft and it says i should be closer to 30K.

I open with Defile followed with either outbreak or plague strike depends on how far fromt he boss i am. my spell priority then becomes festering strike macrod with bloodfury. then scourge strike. while runes are on cd i expend all runic pwr on  death coil. unless it proc then i use it sooner. when defile comes back up i use it again every 30sec give or take. when target is at 45% or less i start useing soul reaper above scourge strike. if soul reaper is on CD i use scourge strike. i continue to use defile.

Ok a couple of things based on that Kromog fight:

 

1 - Don't use Death Strike unless you have the free proc, its a waste of runes and doesn't heal for that much. You used 5 over the fight

 

2 - You only used defile 3 times, for that length of fight you could prob have cast around 10.

 

3 - Only used ERW once.

 

4 - Only used Soul Reaper 6 times. When the boss gets to 45% dont spam all your runes on SS, leave one rune to use SR on CD.

 

5 - Are you using plague leech? As i didn't see any casts.

 

6 - If you are aren't using NP only use Festering Strike on Frost and Blood runes.

 

7 - Dark Transformation uptime is a little low at 45%, try to pool some runic power around the last 10 seconds to get timmy back up to awesomeness.

Forgot to add, i had read somewhere (maybe on here) that defile doesn't hit the boss, so that maybe the reason for the low damage. Oh and no pots

 

Also.....were you using Runic Empowerment? I don't have numbers at hand but im sure thats behind BT and RC

 Unless it has been fixed, Defile doesn't hit the boss (tried it out myself). But on Kromog specifically you would want NP either way, because of the hands.

Yeah i have some issues with my rotation i think i may need a weak aura. i tend to worry alot about my survivability and mechanics.my erw had a 5 min cooldown. i was useing defile for the hands because it does not work on that boss, im am thinking of swappig out defile and necrotic plage bepending on the boss. i used Death Strike because i was low on hp and healers couldnt get to me. I feel my dps is low on all boss fights. I think it may be because i pay more attention to the mechanics than my CD which is why i think weak auras may help me. when i focus on my rotation / spell priority i tend to die alot and dead dps is useless dps. Is there a Weak Aura Unholy DK sscript or what have you that you would recomend. I have never used it so i dont know how to write or create. It is my understanding if another dk is useing it i can import his if linked. i even used gurblood's WA and it seems like my dps went down on heroic highmaul. I will update this post after raid tonight with the latest info. i will be testing both WA ans gnomeMacros.

Yeah sorry don't know what i was thinking about with regards to the ERW casts.

 

I would suggest either using PL&Defile or UB&NP. I would also suggest using Runic Corruption instead of Runic Empowerment. Blood tap is the better option for min maxing but i personally find RC easier to manage runes.

 

There are some really helpful UH Weak Auras on this forum.
