Unholy Rune Tap and some advice

5 posts in this topic

So I'm underperforming and not really sure how or why.  Here are my logs https://www.warcraftlogs.com/guilds/usercalendar/91065Is anyone bored enough to care and point out what I'm doing wrong?

 

Also regarding BloodTap for Unholy, can someone go into detail about how to optimally use it? Can you just macro it Frost style? I personally find managing BT on top of boss mechanics and disease timers and what not incredibly annoying, but on paper its supposed to be better I guess.

I don't see anything wrong with your dps to be honest.

 

Regarding PL:

 

Plague Leech when:

Two runes are fully exhausted

AND/OR

Diseases are about to expire

AND/OR

Outbreak is off cooldown or within 1 GCD of coming off cooldown

 

and BT:

 

Blood Tap when:

A rune is needed to Soul Reaper

I myself just tap in pairs when I have 10 charges or when I have down time and PL is on CD

For unholy I personally recommend runic corruption over blood tap. It keeps your runes cycling and doesn't disrupt which runes you are getting (ie phase one you will always have 2 blood 2 frost 2 unholy, phase 2 you will always have 4 death 2 unholy). Plus it's passive so you don't need to think of it.

 

If you choose to use blood tap then the easiest usage of it is to just macro it to death coil. For super elite play you might want to track it and pop it specifically when you need the runes but already tracking diseases and pets this can be challenging for some. Otherwise macro it and enjoy your free runes :D

Runic Corruption is better than macroed Blood Tap, so pick that one if you are having trouble managing the other.

 

I have a WA to track charges, and either use it when I have 10 or more charges, or when I have nothing else to do. When the boss is at 45%, however, I try to keep 5+ charges in reserve to be able to use Soul Reaper on CD.

Macroed BT is always a loss.

 

I tried RC a few times but always had down time problems because I was waiting for a rune for example SR or SS.

If you can use BT optimally its a gain, if you macro it, its a loss.

      Just want to share my TMW profile. It helps me a lot in raids and mythic+, when there are lots of mechanics you need to keep your eye on, especially if you are new to WOW like me.

      I love mogging. To my knowledge, these are all original. I'm sharing cause I love finding cool mogs to spark my imagination and push the boundaries of what I've made. You'll notice I have favorite pieces of gear that I re-use in a number of these. As far as I know these are all blood elf death knight obtainable. I have completed almost every set you see here. I'm currently digging frost...

      I have one of every class so I'll eventually have a video up for them all. I won't be sharing what each piece is. You are of course welcome to remake them yourself, I've just found that discovering the pieces and trying to see which ones fit really help devolop mog sense. If that's what you're looking for, this video should be fun!

      So, i'm lvl 866 crit - castigator - soul reaper. Crit 27%, haste 18%, mastery 29%.  Draugr, Girdle of the Everlasting King and Sephuz's Secret. I simc at 305k dps single target. When i switch to CS - necrosis - dark arbiter, i simc at 298k dps. But my gear is crit-heavy low-mastery and i've no Deadliest coil traits yet, so i wonder if mastery build is really better now. But icy and noxxic still suggest crit-build. Does anyone have the possibility and gear to simc two of this builds with the same ilvl gear. Please share.

      Hello, I'm sure I'm no the one who noticed that we unholy dks can proc sephuz secret on dungeon and raid bosses using the pet stun (if you haven't you can try using pet stun even without the successful stun the ring procs).
      Last patch this was a something I lol'd cuz many classes said sephuz secret was useless for them. And with the legendary updates this ring got a plus% of haste, so it is better than before (with this update I still don't know if now every class can activate the effect).
      Problem is I have 3 legendaries, Sephu'z, Prydaz and the uh dk Belt (Draugr, Girdle of the Everlasting king). I will obviously keep the belt but I'm not sure if with the update Prydaz (with 3 stats now) is better than Sephu'z (activating 25% haste every pet stun (90 sec)).
      I'd like to know your ideas or if anyone had run some numbers please share, and if you are unholy with sephuz and you did'nt know you can activate the proc, try it now!
      Thanks for your answers.

      Hey all. I was wondering what out of the legendaries I have would be best to use together? I got Tak'theritrix's Shoulderpads, Prydaz, Acherus Drape and Uvanimor the Beautiful. I've been using the shoulders and the ring, but I've read that the ring is either broken or has a tool tip error so I'm not sure if that is even worth using or not. I have an 860 crit/haste ring I can equip if that one is not worth using atm and I got gear for any slot if I need to change legionaries. That brings me to my next question for the patch coming up on which legionaries you would suggest upgrading first? The shoulders sound strong just because the gouls are already getting buffed but I have no idea so any help would be awesome.
       
      My last question is with the shoulderpad legendary when I use it I saw that there is a 10 second window to pop Dark Transformation to get the full benefit with the Army and the gargoyle. But I was wondering if when I pop Apocalypse do I need to wait for the gouls to be up and summoned before I hit dark Transormation or should I hit Dark Trans right as soon as I pop the wounds with apocalypse? Normally I've been waiting to see that the gouls are above ground before popping Dark Transformation. Thank you.
