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.

      Hey all! I need some help with my dps, Im 884 ilvl and only do 350-400k dps overall on fights in Nighthold, even on dummy. 
      I just changed to BoS build so I have to practice, but it feels imossible to get more out of him. Im a bit off at stats and havent got legendary belt, ring or set bonus. Atm I have 25% Crit but only 15% haste :-/ Simcraft says 325 dps... about 360 with Glacial advance build.
      Here is a log from Krosus

      Hey all. 
      I've been beating my head against the wall in regards to my DPS.

      I'm very ashamed actually. In the past I have pulled *What I thought was very good numbers* only to see that my DPS is in constant decline. I understand most people are going Frost, but I have invested so much time into Unholy, to switch now would only increase my agitation. I'm no longer a clicker, that's a plus! 
      I have my two piece currently. Currently on Heroic content and I'm needing some advice. Rotation is pretty common with what's suggested. We have a few DK's in our raid group, most of them Frost with another Unholy, who COMPLETELY blows me out of the water. Maybe it's because I'm stuck with Eye Of Command and on multi-add boss fights, it's useless. Help me fellow DK's. I would SO appreciate it.

      Hello everyone,
       
      My current stats are:
      Crit:27%    Haste:15%     Mastery:49%     Vers:5%
      Should I just go and continue on mastery or keep it going with crit?
      Thanks in advance
      P.S. my legos are "Instructor's fourth lesson" and "Taktheratrix's Shoulders" if its relevant

      Hey everyone,
      Im interested in the general achievable uptime of BoS, since I neither have the legendary belt, nor the T19 P4 boni, I can only make it to ~55 seconds with Hungering Rune Weapon + Horn, and I feel like Im doing something wrong here, because the second Breath wont have those 2 runeweapon charges and I can only get it to ~20-25 sec, while the third one goes to ~40 sec again.
      I have a better chest (Kara chest)+trinket and shoulder, but the 20% increased proc chance for howling blast sounds to good to pass up, but at the same time Im making the mistake of trying to not waste HB procs, which results in RP loss overall.
      Whats the uptime for those who have the belt, ring and t19 4p bonus?
       
      normal 3 3 2 3 2 3 2 build
      doing fine with the normal obliterate build, but got tired of it and wanted to try breath.
