It would help if you gave alittle of an idea of what you do when you dps, but from your armory you need to get 7.5 expertise.  It also might help if you put some gems and enchants in even if they arent the best but at least you would have something in the sockets and enchanted them. 

 

I also noticed you have taken the Blood Tap talent which can be a dps lost if you arent using it because I see so many people take the talent but sit on billions of blood charges wasting runes. 

 

The easiest way to manage it is to macro it into Death Coil so you never waste any.

 

#show tooltip Death Coil

/cast Death Coil

/cast Blood Tap

 

You should also make sure to be dpsing from behind the target all the time if possible.

 

Make sure your ghoul is always with you and attacking and you Death Coil to keep your ghoul buffed as much as possible and Death Coil to prevent runic cap.

 

Same rule for runes, don't let them cap by festering strike to extend your dots and scourge strike when necessary. Im not the best at playing unholy so I find myself festering strike alot more than scourge strike so maybe someone else will post on this later.

 

Another thing is keep your Blood plague and frost fever up as much as possible, as unholy blood plague does so much damage over the course of a fight.

 

Lastly using your CDs on cooldown such as Summon Gargoyle, Unholy Frenzy (on yourself), and Dark Transformation.

When Dark Transformation runs out you want to try to pool runic power and Death Coil as much as you can when it ends to rebuff your ghoul as its a big source of your damage. If you have a free moment cast Horn of winter (this should always be on CD) for extra runic power.

 

So DONT runic power cap or rune cap. DO keep Diseases on and keep CDs on cooldown. 

 

I cant think of anything else atm but I hope Ive helped alittle.

Do you see the character audit, which is shown on your armory? ;)

 

Sorry to sound harsh, but there is so much wrong on your character that you should really start reading this:

https://www.icy-veins.com/unholy-death-knight-wow-pve-dps-rotation-cooldowns-abilities (at least single target "rota")

and this:

https://www.icy-veins.com/unholy-death-knight-wow-pve-dps-statistics-priority-reforging

and basically the whole guide

 

Then start fixing your equipment (enchants, gems, proper reforging for hit/exp caps).

 

Afterwords we can start talking about talent & glyph choices. If you are inexperienced in DPS I would suggest taking Runic Corruption.

 

And you never ever want to use necrotic strike in PvE.

 

And THAN we can talk about how to play your unholy dk ;)

Death runes are your "joker" runes which can be used instead of any other rune. You can use your death rune as an unholy, frost or blood rune. As an unholy DK you normally treat death runes as unholy runes

 

 

ok look now is that better ive also got belt buckle and boot enchant but it doesnt show becuase i havent logged.

Yeah, looks better, but you should try to get your hit % lower to 7.5%, because any hit above 7.5% is totally wasted

I'd reccomend Switching to Frost. Unholy requires a certain Finese to play effectively, something you seem to lack. Not to mention how cringe worthy all your Pvp gear is. Overall, Frost is a hell of a lot easier, and at the moment more dps. So switch to that, and leave Unholy to the old codgers like myself.

well im gunna compare the dps and go with that i think.

Unholy takes a lot of practice. Comparing the dps really isn't fair at the moment because of just how easy frost is. What I do when I'm not feeling up to scratch with a toon is create a new toon with the spec I want to learn. So, ideally, hopping on another server and creating an unholy dk might help a lot.

I suppose that WOULD be helpful if he wanted to learn how to perform at lvl 55.  And have all the hit/expertise % be wrong/impossible to reach.  And not have all the spells like sudden doom, rune of the fallen crusader, gargoyle, and dark transformation or all the other essential pieces to endgame raid dps.  Eh unholy can go without mastery though so I sort of see your point.

 

If OP is dead set on playing unholy he should be aware that keeping diseases up is where most of the damage comes from and unless you are locking down a caster that using necrotic should be replaced by scourge strike.  OP might also like to know that unholy is simming the lowest dps of all the dk specs.  But if he likes the play style it should perform well enough to down bosses, the key thing is not standing in fire/interupts and being an off-offtank while you battle res the tank that went down you can pop IBF and put somebody more important than you back in the fight.

 

Or is OP actually trying to get better at pvp? he didnt actually say.

I kinda disagree with this,

if you want to learn the unholy rotation better it is probably better to start a new one. you will get each of the abilities one by one and will learn while playing, it gives you alot of practice doing dungeons/quests.

Also, when you hit level 90 you will notice that you will get gear VERY fast.

I recently hit 90 with my mw monk. She had 437 il, I walked around timeless isle for an hour clicking anything clickable and I made it to 478. this is just one hours work.

And leveling is really fast btw. Just pick your favourite looms and rush through it in matter of short days.

NEVER NECROTIC STRIKE EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER IN PVE!

 

Sorry, what did you say there, I cannot read it at all, maybe you could use a larger text size...

 

lol, for real. Trieu is right, necrotic strike should pretty much only be used in PvP

Personally, I find Unholy easier to play than Frost. I like the fact that I don't have to stare at my bars and make snap decisions about what move to use next. I leveled my DK from level 55 as Unholy and kept him that way through thick and thin, and it's just second nature to me.

 

Make sure minion is summoned. Unholy Presence (green skull).

 

Use Army of the Dead before the pull. Please get Glyph of Army of the Dead!

Use Unholy Frenzy and the gargoyle as soon as you can, and on cooldown.

Get your diseases up with Outbreak, and refresh them with Plague Strike once you get a Fallen Crusader proc.

Keep diseases up with Festering Strike.

Spend Unholy Runes on Scourge Strike.

Dump Runic Power by using Death Coil generously.

Blood Tap twice when you hit 10 charges (keep track of this when you're using Death Coil).

Transform your ghoul as soon as the button lights up.

Under 35% health, use Soul Reaper on cooldown.

 

It sounds complicated, but most of the time it boils down to get diseases up, spam Festering Strike and Death Coil, and use your cooldowns, stupid.

I would respectfully disagree with both of you and remind you that slowing/interupting the shamans in siege of orgrimar is paramount.  That Arcweavers are second priority on Nazgrim because magistrike is dangerous. And that slowing down their casting time: gives you more time to interupt them and lowers the number of heals/damage they can put out by 50%.

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 8/9M BoD | 2/2H CoS | 8/8M Uldir CE   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:
      Ranged DPS: High: Shadow Priest, Mage Medium: Warlock 1 Healer:
      High: Resto Shaman, Mistweaver Monk
       
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience. You need to have the best gear available to you with top end enchants and gems where available. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Alloren (Alloren#1606), Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!

      Two Strike Policy is a weekday Mythic hardcore progression guild on US-Sargeras. In our spare time, we run various high mythic keystones/carries. Currently we are recruiting for our BFA Mythic Team for the Raid Tier Battle of Dazar'alor and Crucible of Storms.  We value camaraderie, communication, preparedness and excellence in each other. Discord is used to communicate during raids. We decided to reform our team after Mythic Mythrax in Uldir and add additional days to our raid schedule from two days to four days a week to achieve CE early on in the tier. 
      We will still be using the updated RCLootCouncil to help distribute loot if it is tradeable or a sidegrade. We expect raiders to be aware of their BIS and ideal gearing setup, and willing to trade where possible to best equip the raid team. The type of people we want would almost JUMP at giving gear to their fellow raid member/team if it is a sidegrade for themselves. Guild repairs, flasks and food are provided to all raiders, including trials.

      Alt requirement: 2 Alts. Keeping the neck & gear up to date. Please inquire about this!

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some *filtered*.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are accepting applications for any role, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.
