Best Enchants, Gems and Consumables for Unholy Death Knight

Cataclysm is a relatively straight forward expansion when it comes to Enchants Gems and Consumables, but each of them is extremely important to maximizing your damage out put and survivability in any situation; this is especially true in Raids and Dungeons. Below is a list of the optimal consumables and enchants to help you get the most out of your UnholyUnholy.



Slot Enchantment
Head Arcanum of the Wildhammer Icon Arcanum of the Wildhammer or Arcanum of the Dragonmaw Icon Arcanum of the Dragonmaw
Shoulders Greater Inscription of Jagged Stone Icon Greater Inscription of Jagged Stone
Back Enchant Cloak - Greater Critical Strike Icon Enchant Cloak - Greater Critical Strike
Chest Enchant Chest - Peerless Stats Icon Enchant Chest - Peerless Stats
Bracers Enchant Bracer - Major Strength Icon Enchant Bracer - Major Strength
Gloves Enchant Gloves - Mighty Strength Icon Enchant Gloves - Mighty Strength
Legs Dragonscale Leg Armor Icon Dragonscale Leg Armor
Feet Enchant Boots - Haste Icon Enchant Boots - Haste
Weapon Rune of the Fallen Crusader Icon Rune of the Fallen Crusader


Reverberating Shadowspirit Diamond Icon Reverberating Shadowspirit Diamond is by far the best option for your Meta Gem, as it gives a considerable amount of Strength and increases the amount of damage dealt by Critical Strikes by 3%. Always make sure you have at least three Red Gems in your gear to keep your Meta gem active.

Our focus is maximizing as much Strength as possible, generally speaking if a socket bonus is not worth 20 Strength or 30 of any other secondary stat, you should default to a pure Strength gem Bold Inferno Ruby Icon Bold Inferno Ruby.

  • In Red Sockets, you will use Bold Inferno Ruby Icon Bold Inferno Ruby.
  • In Yellow Sockets, you will use Fierce Ember Topaz Icon Fierce Ember Topaz.
  • In Blue Sockets, you will use Etched Demonseye Icon Etched Demonseye.




Similar to Gems, the goal with your food buff is maximizing your Strength. you have three options that all grant the same amount of bonus Strength.

  • Beer-Basted Crocolisk Icon Beer-Basted Crocolisk
  • Fortune Cookie Icon Fortune Cookie
  • Seafood Magnifique Feast Icon Seafood Magnifique Feast

Flasks and Potions

As a Unholy Death Knight we will use Flask of Titanic Strength Icon Flask of Titanic Strength

Golemblood Potion Icon Golemblood Potion are a nice added cooldown to allow you to deal even more damage. It is important to also have Mythical Healing Potion Icon Mythical Healing Potions on hand for a quick burst of healing if you find yourself in a situation where you would otherwise die.


Profession Items

While you will not have much time to cast them and any kind of damage taken will interrupt their healing Dense Embersilk Bandage Icon Dense Embersilk Bandage can be the difference between surviving or dying so it is a great mana-free way to heal yourself in an emergency.
