UH DK expertise

10 posts in this topic

so. when I read the Unholy DK statistic Guide.. i found

  • Strength;

  • Hit Rating (until 8% chance to hit);

  • Haste Rating;

  • Critical Strike Rating;

  • Mastery Rating;

  • Expertise Rating (until 26)
but at the bottom i read... "Expertise Rating reduces the chance that your attacks will be dodged. For Unholy, this statistic has little value and you should always reforge out of it and generally avoid it."

so.. its 0 exp or 26 exp ??

if its 26 exp.. isnt it should be like this ?

  • Strength;

  • Hit Rating (until 8% chance to hit);

  • Expertise Rating (until 26)

  • Haste Rating;

  • Critical Strike Rating;

  • Mastery Rating;

Its 26 but not an important stat. You're never going to get 0 expertise, but you need to make sure you never go over 26.

The point is that you should never go over 26, because beyond 26 it provides you with no benefits (unless you are attacking the boss from the front, which you shouldn't be doing).

However, reaching "26" has a low priority for Unholy Death Knights (as opposed to most other melee classes, who need 26 to perform competitively).

In practice, you should:

  • Not reforge into Expertise Rating or enchant/gem for it.
  • Try to find items without Expertise Rating on them.
  • Reforge out of Expertise Ratings on items where you cannot avoid it.
Even so, until you get to 26, Expertise Rating has a small value to you, so it's not entirely a wasted statistic, it's just a very weak one.

well.. here is my armory link http://us.battle.net...ajador/advanced

i got 0 expertise.. is it bad ?? or good ??

That's good. Your reforging is mostly good, but there are some places where you don't follow our suggested stat priority of Haste > Crit > Mastery.

  • Chest. You reforged Hit to Mastery instead of to Haste.
  • Ring (Ring of Torn Flesh). You reforged Crit to Haste, instead of reforging Mastery to Haste. You are also missing a gem here :)
  • Boots. You reforged Crit to Mastery when you shouldn't have changed anything on the item.
  • Legs. You should reforge Mastery to Crit.
  • Hands. You reforged Crit to Haste, when you should have reforged Mastery to Haste.

You should reverse the weights of Critical Strike Rating and Mastery Rating, to bring WoWReforge's suggestions in accord with our recommended stat priority (set Crit to 0.8 and Mastery to 0.7).

He's using Gurth - meaning mastery has priority over crit.

Ah, you're right! It had somehow slipped my mind what weapon he's using :)

In that case, yes, the settings are right in wowreforge :)

well.there is a definate discrepancy here. on one hand you are suggesting to reforge from expertise, but on the other in your dk guide you are telling us straight down to reach 7.5%. can you do me a favor and make up your mind on the expertise factor for UNHOLY DKs?

yours always, Che.

      Hello all, 
                   Thanks for your yalls time and I hope I am in the the right place to ask. First things first, here is my toons info page. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/draenor/Aurgus/advanced . The question I have is this. On the Arms Warrior guide, it states the the stat priority for Arms Warrior is Mastery>Haste>Versatility>Strength>Crit . Then the first thing it says in the next paragraph is the following.
      Strength is your primary statistic. You should look for it in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Attack Power, which determines the damage your abilities do.
      Critical Strike provides additional damage to your attacks and abilities, and also increases your rage generated by auto-attack swings on successful critical strikes.
      As a on and off again / returning player and all around general boob, I mean, NOOB lol, this is extremely confusing. I am already and almost done with my main Warrior quest, and I have so far chosen gear that focused on Mastery and Haste. But from that the guide says, I am doing it wrong?
      Thanks again for your time , any help would be appreciated, and MUCH LOVE from Wisconsin :)

      This is my current pawn string from sims:
      Agility=21.87, CritRating=18.49, HasteRating=24.16, MasteryRating=22.94, Versatility=17.33
      Is anyone else getting haste over mastery and agi? I recently got the Mantle (FINALLY!), so not sure if that is affecting anything. I know crit used to be important for Mantle, so I am not sure why it would be the culprit here. I even tested swapping out my enchants to haste and it did provide a slight boost while maintaining the same scaling. Mastery is at 9300, Crit at 9300 and Haste at 8000 (Roughly), so I definitely dont feel I have enough mastery to start warranting haste over it and agi.
      Just wondering if anyone else is seeing this too?
      I do have the current sim build, so no issues there.

      Hi Guys, I need little help with stats priority and rotation. I think, Im doing something wrong with my dps. Cant break 500k-550k DPS on single target and need advice to someone AoE target bosses in Nighthold.
      I send my armory:
      http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/draenor/Cryea/simple
      And the logs:

      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!
