Hello Guys

Since ToS came out im playing UH DK but im not really happy with my DPS output

I can pull on some fights over a million on some fights im stuck at 800-900k but im not really sure  what i have to improve to get better

additionally i cant read the logs as thourougly as you guys do^^

this log is from yesterday



i was very lucky regarding legendarys so i have Cold Heart and the Shoulders

also i have soul of the deathlord which i only use on Mistress with a Defile build ( not on this log)


so im very happy if u could check the log and help me to get better^^

Hi Fl0vv, 


One thing that I instantly noticed is that you have VERY low Virulent Plague uptime, on some bosses even under 60%. VP is our 2nd most damaging ability and you should really try to have it up at all times.  Secondly,  you should ideally be using 2 pots and also might want to consider playing with Infected Claws instead of Shadow Infusion since you don't wear CoF. 


I can't really analyze too in-depth since I am on Mobile,  but I'll PM you my BTag so we can talk there,  might help since I'm German,  as well :D


Hope that helps

Thank you for looking over it 

60% uptime is quite low yes :( but I was dead quite a long time too on sime fights so maybe  that was one of them  

Also im wearing CoF all the time when im using DA build so I don't know where you have seen that .

did you look on armory? Maybe there because in open world i don't equip it 


A little bit more in depth over all would be nice cause i think it can't be only VP uptime to do more dps 

so where are all the other dk's here :)

I've had another proper look now since I am on PC and can properly analyze. Here are a few things that I encountered:

- Low Unholy Frenzy Uptime, which means you do not really play your rotation outside of the DA window correctly, otherwise your uptime would definitely be higher. Try to keep your wounds between 2-6 on the target if possible.

- Relatively low DA damage for your Gear - Do you prepare for DA windows (pooling resources etc.)? Do you make sure you line up your buffs (Potion, DT, Army and whatnot) to maximize DPS?

- The Virulent Plague uptime seems to be consistently low apart from Mistress, as mentioned before, it's essential to our DPS.


What is your Opener for boss fights, maybe you are not opening as well as you can,

Yeah thats definitely a problem for me

I try to keep my wounds and VP up on the target but there are times where i literally cant do

anything, because i have no runes or rp ... i think im doing something wrong

is it also necessary on multiple targets? the adds on mistress live long enough to put Vp up but on harjatan for example

they die so fast


to the DA dmg

i never get more than 10 to max 12 DC out during DA ... 10 most of the time .. a little bit more with BL

on the second or third DA im trying to have minimum 3 runes and 90 rp before i cast... but i cant manage it always because of the problems written above :(

opener is the following

(10 sec pull)

7 sec Army

2 sec Pot

wraith walk

2x festering strike  and pray for 6 wounds... if not one more festering strike



Chains of Ice


Dark Transformation


and then use all procs and rp

festering strike only until 5 wounds else scourge strike
