Is it me or does the t15 4 set seem to be geared more for frost? Unholy naturally does increased shadow damage, so that part is nice, but does unholy have more crit than frost?

Unholy's mastery and frost's KM are balanced very closely for the 4-set, showing up as about a 2% damage increase for both.

Any idea is the Blood´s 4-set bonus worth getting or should one just get 2-set and go for non-tier items?

2 set then non tier items. The 4pc is just not worth it, especially when you factor in just how many time you can AMS for full RP this tier.

I don't even like the 2pc for blood. It's worth a maximum of about 3k hps. Last tier when I was self healing for 30k, I thought that was amazing, because it would be a 10% boost to our self healing. but now that I'm 522+ and working on heroic progression I'm doing 50-70k hps on most fights. 3k hps doesn't seem like such a big deal anymore.

The 2pc isn't game breaking by any means, but if used right it can be more than just its hps. As blood we are supposed to be timing CDs and Death Strike for burst, either having a CD in place to prevent the burst or a DS ready to recover from the burst, and a free 10% heal can be though of as a 10% burst reduction. If you use Rune Tap right after a burst that did 40% of your hp, it effectively can be though of as only doing 30%, and you probably would need to DS after a 40% but maybe not after a 30% burst. depends on a lot of things, but the anti-burst potential is there.

Plus, rune tap being free means more B runes for BB/HS/SR, which is a slight dmg increase.

      So I got into a dungeon (Mana Tombs) with a level 71 Frost DK, and this guy was doing some absurd damage 1 shotting everything in his path.
      Was just wondering if anyone could possibly tell me how this guy was doing so much damage at this level

      Hey guys. I have a choice between an 885 ilvl horn of valor, and an 855 Memento of angerboda with a socket, and I can't decide which to choose. I'm unholy, so the vers is one of my lower prio stats, and I'm thinking the socket, extra strength (since the horn basically works out at 1025 strength average) and procs makes the memento better? It seems kinda hard to imagine that with the 30 ilvl difference though. What do you guys think?

      Hello, since I couldn't find an updated Trinket list for UH DKs for the new patch. Ill be asking here:
      Right now I have an 880 Ursoc's Rending Paw and 865 Hunger of the Pack equipped. I got an ilvl 865 Eye of Command from Karazhan. Should I replace HoP for EoC or nah? My armory:ër/simple
      Thanks for the answers in advance :) .
      EDIT: Forgot to mention(might be relevant to take this decision), my HotP has a socket. Right now I'm gemming and enchanting haste, trying to get to 18-19% haste.
