Hey all I'm a returning player and finally hit 110 on my death knight yesterday. I am currently playing a frost dk, but I'm not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. Unholy on the other hand looks pretty sweet... but from what I hear they are in a bad state atm. This might be to early to speculate, but anyone know if buffs are coming this next patch? Should I reroll now before I invest thousands of AP into frost relic? As cool as unholy looks, don't want to play a doomed spec...

I enjoyed it leveling, but wanted to dual wield.  You will have some survivability issues until you get used to how it's played and possibly gear appropriately(at least I did and still do to some extent).

Lol survivability was something I never even considered. Since I play an orc the frost relics look like tooth picks... biggest turn off really. Unholy simply looks more fun compared to frost (tbh I dont even have the first golden trait so things might change with that).

It comes down to mainly that frost is vastly better than unholy right now unless unholy has the legendary bracers, if they have the bracers they become about equal in terms of potential damage output. Unholy has 2 grips though with their pet which is something to keep in mind perhaps, while frost has better CC stun or blind, even slows.

Once you finish the class order quests, you get the "enhanced" appearance options that make them a little chunkier.

Additionally, the breath of sindragosa trait(first one the guide gets you to) hits like a truck.

Alright well guess I'll stick with frost, just wish the relics didn't look like tooth picks lol.

Taking down the World Boss encounter this week unlocks a new artifact weapon skin.  The weapons are much larger.

What about using mastery as main stat?? No profit?

Mastery only buffs frost damage and since obliterate is performing the way it is, and deal physical damage, mastery isnt quite as useful as it was when FSc was the ST ability.

 

Nevertheless, as you gear up, mastery has it place.  Its just not necessarily something you should"stack".

Ok... This is my opinion.

I played both specs (unholy and frost). The good new is that they pretty much have the same stats priority at low ilvl. You would want crit until 25-30% then haste until 18-20% (no more than that at low ilvl) then mastery-versatility.

With those stats, you will be able to test both spec and see wich one you prefer between uh and frost. 

Actually, without legendary, I think frost perform extremely well while unholy will need a proper legendary to skyrocket... If you prefer Unholy, you can play frost while looting as unholy spec for your legendary.

I hope my advices help ☺️

Have fun, this is mostly important.

Frost damage is about 60-70% of my total damage. It is not a bad stat at all. But versatility is pretty good too although I personally dont like this stat at all! ☺️

      I am going the corpselance support build for Necromancer and the build has me taking Corpselance with Brittle and the pestilence set on top of that, if I were to take off the ability Corpselance and change it to another ability say for example Bone Spikes with Frost spikes, would the damage decrease an amount that it would not be worth it?

      This is the first time I've ever experienced the engineering battle res item, Disposable Spectrophasic Reanimator, backfire. Not only that, it also critted, essentially one shotting me. I've been using the engg bres item for more than a year now (since 8.3), so I was quite shocked to find out that I got extremely unlucky the first time it did backfire!

      Hey everybody! So the other day, I decided to make a 5-minute guide on how to play the Warrior class in WoW. It's not super in-depth, but I just wanted some good feedback from the Warrior community on this. Lemme know what you guys think! I also hope that this is able to help somebody out there.   ?

      So i heard about primal ancients, and i m kinda desperate to get it. Why? It can make my Demon Hunter even powerful then he is now (I deal about 35m damage) So how do you get them? I know how though. Get in a GR 70 and do it Solo, but how do you do it actually? How much do you need to farm this for? A week? A month? A YEAR? The point is, i want primal ancients, and have NO IDEA how to farm them :// so... i need a bit of help for farming :))

      I'm new to using icy-veins, and I cannot seem to get used to navigating the WoW class guides. Why is stat info the 13th section of the guides, but max level content 6th through 12th? Where do I find comparisons between specs?
