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?

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 :)

well..... look what it says for UH dk mastery, lol. SHADOW DAMAGE increase. look what kind of damage the gurth does: shadow. i do no believe that any weapon can compete with gurth for UH dks.

      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!

      Hey guys, I have all 6 tier items (heroic, some WF). My hands are 895, but got a 905 item from mythic chrono.
      Using
      ( Pawn: v1: "Blood": Class=DeathKnight, Spec=Blood, CritRating=4.57, HasteRating=7.57, MasteryRating=3.07, Versatility=6.07, Strength=9.07, Stamina=12.07 )
      (Bad I know, got the numbers from Noxxic, but just swapped mastery and crit around. Matches the balanced priority, been working for me so far lol). Not a bleeding edge raider.
      Current setup

      Proposed setup

       
      Did multiple AMR sims with both setups, and averaged it, and each time 4pc comes out a little ahead. Using Krosus as setup. 

      I'm thinking it;s the versatility on the tier hands that is making the difference, not so much the 25% chance at a rune?
      Thoughts, opinions, Thanks!

      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.
