Quick weapon question for Unholy DK. Ataraxis 397 or Gurthalak 390? I was assuming Gurth and if that is correct according to the post reforge to Mastery over crit?

For Unholy Death Knights when it comes to weapons take the one that has a higher item level. The Gurthalak is nice, but the LFR version does slightly less damage than the Ataraxis. Now once you can get the normal Gurthalak you will want to use that until you can get a heroic version of Ataraxis or a heroic version of Gurthalak.

I'm just bumping this so that my sticky doesn't appear as the "last post" in this section on the board index :P

I would have to disagree with this. I have both LFR Gurth and 10man Ataraxis. I figured the higher ilvl would equal more damage. After a buddy of mine pushed back on me I tested it. I found the LFR Gurth produced higher overall damage than the 10man Ataraxis. I think my buddy even ended up siming both weapons and it found Gurth better.

I believe you will gain more DPS from using inv_sword_2h_deathwingraiddw_d_01.jpgGurthalak, Voice of the Deeps than inv_mace_2h_deathwingraid_d_01.jpgAtaraxis, Cudgel of the Warmaster.

The main reason why Gurthalak is better is its proc, which is truly very powerful. This result is somewhat counter-intuitive, since weapon damage is generally a very large factor in choosing weapons, and Gurthalak also has no stats :)

So, Gurthalak will probably be best for you :)

      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!

      I will NOT be using BoS in 7.1.5...  why?
      http://www.wowhead.com/item=132459/perseverance-of-the-ebon-martyr
      Build:
      http://www.wowhead.com/talent-calc/death-knight/frost/cj7z
      Basically with the combination of Gathering Storm (extended RW) and fitting more Rime into that time period I'm hoping that my M+ hybrid spec will remain competitive and the sims thus far seem to support the theory.
      If you have the helm too, grats! and look forward to the major increase in it's power with Freezing Fog +30% and Tier 19 based around more Rime and more RP from Rime we should see many viable builds popping up on logs. **Stay with FP for now until you have T19 x 2 - see updated build link ^^
      Why not BoS and Hungering? ... well, I'm looking for big Rime crits and don't fancy the long CD to manage. I also want to remain powerful in M+ which should be the case with this build... I'm pretty sure I can become more useful with Winter is Coming + extended RW... stunning mobs for the whole of PoF uptime.
      Obliteration will be used to maximise rune spam for Gathering Storm.
      Lets hear your thoughts?

      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.
