Unholy Death Knight 7.1

It is best to cast this shortly before combat or during phases when you cannot attack the boss, since it has a cast time during which you cannot attack.

 

- At 6.0.2 you dont need to cast it anymore.

Unholy do NOT have Soul Reaper! Even if you switch to Blood Presence.

What level are you? Level 90 Death Knights have Soul Reaper in all specialisations (and all presences).

Hi. I wish to know if that guide can be applied to PvP as well. Speacilly the builds, cos based on the way its written, looks like more based to PvE. And for example, comparing to the tips from Noxxic (another great guide), both of you goes in very different lines of build.

 

So I would like to have it cleared, for no confusions, thx.

And if the guide is more relate to PvE, do you guys have pvp guides? cos I didnt find at the site.

All of our class guides on Icy Veins are designed exclusively for PvE. We are not likely to start doing PvP guides any time soon, I'm afraid.

Hey, first of all, this is a really nice guide! but I got a question regarding Scourge Strike and Festering Strike, if I end up in a situation which leads me with 4 death runes for single target DPS does SS have more priority over FS? and what spec do you think ends up with more sustained DPS? Unholy or 2H frost?
Cheers!

"

  1. Cast wow_icon_ability_deathknight_soulreaper. Soul Reaper
    • Only when the target is below 45% health."

 

don't u mean 35% health? Or am I getting something wrong?

it is an Draenor perk that allows to use our execute at 45%

Yeah, SS is higher priority. Obviously, don't forego FS to the point where your diseases drop off though :)

 

As for sustained DPS, I'm not sure. We'll see how it is going into raids.

Can i ask whats so bad about breath of sindragosa and necrotic plague compared to defile?

for me Necrotic Plague takes much more dps out of my DK at Bossfights or dummy.. In fact off the 30 sec. dot @ 15 stacks..  defile is nice at aoe but thats all.. for each bossfight i would ever use Necrotic Plaque at the moment..

Since when did Runic Corruption become the best Tier 4 talent? Up until now it was always listed as the worst.

I dont understand why you say that the statistic priority is: 

1: mastery 

2: multistrike

 

when all i see from the Simulation craft is that they want Multistrike and more multistrike!

This is pasted directly from sim craft: 

Crit 12.91% 7.91% 320

 

Haste

35.60% 7.62% 762

 

Multistrike

21.44% 14.85% 980

 

Damage / Heal Versatility

3.49% 0.49% 64

 

Attack Power

4670 3768 0

 

Mastery

47.18% 34.68% 646

 

Armor

1849 1849 1849

Hope you can help me understand why your guide is not matching the sim craft you are linking to

The stat priority had a bit of a problem. It should be fixed now. Thank you for pointing it out.

so we gem + enchant multistrike now? No Mastery anymore? Or do I get this wrong? (Cause stat priority changed though)

No worries mate...you should be using Defile on bosses to. Its a significant increase from DnD. Is it not part of your rotation?

It would be nice to add Necrosis and the 5% more Multistrike from all sources to the explanation of Multistrike at stat priority

You show Multistrike as the #1 stat, yet go for Mastery gems/enchants/food? Is that a mistake after changing those two in the order?

Just another thing.. Since multistrike is on top of the prio list surely we must gem and enchant in multistrike right? since it says mastery on the guide

I always read your guides for all of my toons. Thanks for this. My DK is lvl 81, so the consumables you have here are useless to me right now because they require lvl 90. What do you suggest for my lvl?

I don't understand. You say that Haste is our worst stat, but on the other hand you want us to use Runic Corruption, which scales with Haste obviously. Also it would be nice to know why prior to that it was stated that Blood Tap was best, because as far as I see it, Blood Tap gives me 1 Death Rune guaranteed for 75 Runic Power while Runic Empowerment gives me a 45% chance for 1 Death Rune per 30 Runic Power, which seems a bit random but should be overall better?

 

I really would have the logic explained behind having Haste as our worst stat, but picking Runic Corruption as rune refresher.

Hei, and cheers for a great guide!

 

Is it possible somehow to imitate an simmulare effect like this mage macro with defile? 

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast Frostbolt
  • /cast Freeze

Using a macro such as the one above will enable you to automatically make use of wow_icon_spell_frost_frostnova.jpg Freeze whenever it comes off cooldown. Remember that wow_icon_spell_frost_frostbolt02.jpg Frostbolt does not consume the charges of wow_icon_ability_mage_wintersgrasp.jpg Fingers of Frost that Freeze generates. Also, making your Water Elemental cast Freeze while you are casting Frostbolt will have no incidence on your cast of Frostbolt.

      Gul'dan also drops vanity items that aren't visible under the Nighthold loot tables in the journal. Players on reddit have been reporting two toy drops off Gul'dan. Both were obtained on Normal or higher difficulty, so it's safe to assume that they won't drop in LFR.
      Skull of Corruption Is only lootable by Demon Hunters, but it can be traded to anyone else after, even sold in the Auction House. It makes your character kneel with a skull in his/her hand. Memory Cube is rewarded upon completing a quest line which starts by killing Chronomatic Anomaly that drops Mysterious Cube. When interacted with, players will "relive" various Legion cinematics. Golden Hearthstone Card: Lord Jaraxxus Turns the player into Lord Jaraxxus for one minute and replaces actionbars with emotes he does during the encounter.

      There's one more toy unique to Demon Hunters - Fel Focusing Crystal. It hasn't dropped yet. It's also BoE.

      As you maybe have already noticed, Mythic+ rewards have been increased with the latest reset and Nighthold's introduction, but there's more coming next week when mythic opens (and your M+ chests you earn this week will have that level of reward as well). So while the base ilevel in M+12 now is 870 (885 for your weekly chest) and that's the most you can get now, next week if you finish a M+15 you'll be able to get an 885 (900 in weekly chest).
      Ornyx (source)
      With the opening of the Nighthold on Normal and Heroic difficulties, the maximum item level for Warforged or Titanforged items is now 925. Any item that could previously drop at or above item level 895 can now reach a maximum of 925.
      Next week, when Mythic Nighthold releases, we’ll be increasing the cap on Mythic Keystone dungeon rewards from 12 to 15 (at 5 item levels per difficulty level). If you’re able to complete a Level 15 Keystone run this week, you’ll have a Mythic 15 reward waiting for you in your Order Hall cache next week.

      Touch of a Titan is a new quest offered by Arcanomancer Vridiel in Dalaran that rewards Distilled Titan Essence when you collect 50 Essence of Aman'Thul. The quest is here to upgrade existing Legendary items from 910 to item level 940.
      All Legendaries that drop now are of item level 940 by default. Existing Legendaries can be upgraded by completing the quest. The quest is repeatable. You can't hold more than 50 Essence of Aman'Thul at a time, so turn in the quest as soon as you can. You don't need to accept the quest for Essences to drop. The weekly cache gives 15 Essence of Aman'Thul. Each Nighthold boss drops 1 - 3 Essence of Aman'Thul. Winning 10 2v2 arenas awards 5 Essence of Aman'Thul. Winning 10 3v3 arenas awards 5 Essence of Aman'Thul. If you win Rated Battlegrounds 3 times, you can get 5 Essence of Aman'Thul. Emissary caches from world quests give 1 - 4 Essence of Aman'Thul each. According to redditor Not_athrowaweigh, you can farm up to 120 Essence of Aman'Thul before Mythic Nighthold opens next week, allowing the upgrade of two Legendary items.
