unholy dk dps at highmaul heroic.

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys as the topic says my problem is my single target dps. i believe i follow rotation correctly , but especially at imperator i can barely pull 20k dps. After i had checked logs to find out other unholy dks dpsi i see they have used blood boil a lot. But i do my raids with pugs, so they do not allow me use blood boil during intermission phase. my dps is struct around 18-20k(barely). and mage mobs like to fixate me a lot...

and i did not manage to kill the boss,so soul reaper out of question

so i am asking for help.

when the dbm pull comes, i call my minions + use first 1k str potion
apply outbreak
call my gargoyle
defile
1x festering
(if i have full runic power spam death coil to enlarge my pet.)
1x festering
1x ss
empowered runic weapon
2x festering(if i dont have death runes)
death coil spam
2x ss or more
plague leech
outbreak or plague strike
ss with all my death runes.

my main is unholy. please dont consider my frost build.

and here is my toon

You can still blood boil when the big adds (aberations) come out and for all the replicated small adds in Phase4 if you reach there.

1- That doesnt change much but Defile prioritizes Dots, so better cast it before Outbreak if you can.

2- Use Empowered runic weapon when Plague Leech is on Cd, and You have no runes, no runic power.

3- You didnt mention it, but when your Ghoul is already transformed, and there is only 10-12sec remains. You must save your runic power high(between 60-90 rp) to immediatly boost him once he gets smaller. If you had a proc when 4sec left, save it too.

      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?

      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?

      So, just got an 885 http://www.wowhead.com/item=137406/terrorbound-nexus trinket, and wondering whether it'd be an upgrade.
      Given that it should likely trade for the Ironrune Charm, it would probably make me run a bit low on haste, and I have two alternates as to not lose too much crit in the process:
      I have an 855 http://www.wowhead.com/item=134518 and a 850 http://www.wowhead.com/item=139232/midnight-heralds-pauldrons with a socket. If the trinket is an upgrade, which shoulders should I use, and if the latter, with crit or haste gem? (+150)

      My girlfriend is new to WoW (joined at the start of Legion) and absolutely loves the death knight class and the way it plays. 
      We have followed the DK guides on IV for the castigator spec (specifically the secondary stat choices). She has also learnt the rotation and executes it properly. 
      She is however having slight issues with her DPS at her current ilvl (armory link: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/ravencrest/Guzniffer/simple) relative to a new DK that joined us in last nights raid (armory link: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/ravencrest/Moontrapper/simple).
      Can someone give us some help regarding what we are doing right/wrong and where we can improve?
