Unholy Rune Tap and some advice

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.

      Something's been bugging me recently - why is mastery more valuable to an Unholy DK than versatility?  It seems to me that versatility should be superior because it increases ALL damage (shadow & physical) while mastery only increases shadow damage.  Does 1% of mastery scale differently than 1% of versatility in some way?  I assume I am misunderstanding something here about how versatility works.

      I played at the launch of legion for a good month or two, but i've recently come back. I picked up unholy and I really like it but I like to have some alts so i'm looking for another option.

      Now, to clarify my question. What I mean when I ask for complexity is perhaps not everyones definition. When I play my UDK, I understand the basics. Put on wounds, pop wounds=Damage. Obviously it's a lot deeper than that in terms of our kit but thats the general gist. When I play UDK, I feel as if I play it more i'll get better. There's some RNG, and lots of varying situations as to what button I need to press next to squeeze out the most dps.

      That's the kind of thing I crave. And i'm curious what other classes have this type of playstyle in the same or varying degrees. I know for a fact feral is in this camp, and if i'd guess i'd say it's the most complex class in legion at the moment. The problem is I don't really like Feral's flavor. I tried Arms warrior but my problem with it was i'd colossus smash...and then just hit the guy. It never really seemed to change and that got on my nerves a little, despite me loving the flavor. 

      To summarize, what classes do you guys thing have the deepest pool of choices, the most you can wring out of them by practice and mastery of them. Whether that be through best rotation or maybe even a legendary or two that mix it up for them. Thanks in advance!

      Finally got a draught of souls the other day, in the weak ass 880 flavor, and i noticed something strange. The tooltip says 185k per tick, i beat the dummy, its 185k. I then simmed it, swappped out for my 885 angerboda and simmed that and then put the draught back on and now the tooltip says 265k per tick.... wtf. so i go to beat on the dummy and sure enough, its 265k per tick. i had also noticed this same discrepency in the loot table  (because i was always worshipping the draught when i didnt have it) but i just thought the tooltip was bugged. Does anyone have any idea whats going on with this thing? dont bother saying "its from your mastery"  i had the same gear and buffs on and was not in combat (literally standing still)  and even if i was, there is no mastery buff that would increase the trink  damage by 40% +. Never mind i must have been mistaken, been beating on the dummy for awhile and its doin 265k a tick.

      Has Mark of the Trained Soldier become the top neck enchant for us thanks to the recent changes? I'd love to see some discussion on this.
