Quick weapon question for Unholy DK. Ataraxis 397 or Gurthalak 390? I was assuming Gurth and if that is correct according to the post reforge to Mastery over crit?

Quick weapon question for Unholy DK. Ataraxis 397 or Gurthalak 390? I was assuming Gurth and if that is correct according to the post reforge to Mastery over crit?

For Unholy Death Knights when it comes to weapons take the one that has a higher item level. The Gurthalak is nice, but the LFR version does slightly less damage than the Ataraxis. Now once you can get the normal Gurthalak you will want to use that until you can get a heroic version of Ataraxis or a heroic version of Gurthalak.

I'm just bumping this so that my sticky doesn't appear as the "last post" in this section on the board index :P

I would have to disagree with this. I have both LFR Gurth and 10man Ataraxis. I figured the higher ilvl would equal more damage. After a buddy of mine pushed back on me I tested it. I found the LFR Gurth produced higher overall damage than the 10man Ataraxis. I think my buddy even ended up siming both weapons and it found Gurth better.

I believe you will gain more DPS from using inv_sword_2h_deathwingraiddw_d_01.jpgGurthalak, Voice of the Deeps than inv_mace_2h_deathwingraid_d_01.jpgAtaraxis, Cudgel of the Warmaster.

The main reason why Gurthalak is better is its proc, which is truly very powerful. This result is somewhat counter-intuitive, since weapon damage is generally a very large factor in choosing weapons, and Gurthalak also has no stats :)

So, Gurthalak will probably be best for you :)

well..... look what it says for UH dk mastery, lol. SHADOW DAMAGE increase. look what kind of damage the gurth does: shadow. i do no believe that any weapon can compete with gurth for UH dks.

      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 all I'm a returning player and finally hit 110 on my death knight yesterday. I am currently playing a frost dk, but I'm not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. Unholy on the other hand looks pretty sweet... but from what I hear they are in a bad state atm. This might be to early to speculate, but anyone know if buffs are coming this next patch? Should I reroll now before I invest thousands of AP into frost relic? As cool as unholy looks, don't want to play a doomed spec...

      So, the item specifies Death and Decay-which Unholy also has-does it work with the spec? And how good is it in fights where you can have those 10 seconds reliably enough?

      Recently changed from Unholy to Frost, and im split between 3 trinkets and when and where i should use them.
      Eye of Command (865), Ursoc's Rending Paw (880), Spiked Counterweight (860).

      Thank you in advance :)

      Currently I have Nature's Call (heroic 875), Memento of Angerboda (Mythic 840) but I recently got Ursoc's Rending Paw (865). Should I swap any trinket for the paw? Which trinkets do you prefer as frost and unholy?
