Unholy Death Knight 7.1

Recommended Posts

Guest Imodorox

It is best to cast this shortly before combat or during phases when you cannot attack the boss, since it has a cast time during which you cannot attack.

 

- At 6.0.2 you dont need to cast it anymore.

Unholy do NOT have Soul Reaper! Even if you switch to Blood Presence.

What level are you? Level 90 Death Knights have Soul Reaper in all specialisations (and all presences).

Hi. I wish to know if that guide can be applied to PvP as well. Speacilly the builds, cos based on the way its written, looks like more based to PvE. And for example, comparing to the tips from Noxxic (another great guide), both of you goes in very different lines of build.

 

So I would like to have it cleared, for no confusions, thx.

And if the guide is more relate to PvE, do you guys have pvp guides? cos I didnt find at the site.

All of our class guides on Icy Veins are designed exclusively for PvE. We are not likely to start doing PvP guides any time soon, I'm afraid.

Hey, first of all, this is a really nice guide! but I got a question regarding Scourge Strike and Festering Strike, if I end up in a situation which leads me with 4 death runes for single target DPS does SS have more priority over FS? and what spec do you think ends up with more sustained DPS? Unholy or 2H frost?
Cheers!

"

  1. Cast wow_icon_ability_deathknight_soulreaper. Soul Reaper
    • Only when the target is below 45% health."

 

don't u mean 35% health? Or am I getting something wrong?

it is an Draenor perk that allows to use our execute at 45%

Yeah, SS is higher priority. Obviously, don't forego FS to the point where your diseases drop off though :)

 

As for sustained DPS, I'm not sure. We'll see how it is going into raids.

Guest xPalle

for me Necrotic Plague takes much more dps out of my DK at Bossfights or dummy.. In fact off the 30 sec. dot @ 15 stacks..  defile is nice at aoe but thats all.. for each bossfight i would ever use Necrotic Plaque at the moment..

Since when did Runic Corruption become the best Tier 4 talent? Up until now it was always listed as the worst.

I dont understand why you say that the statistic priority is: 

1: mastery 

2: multistrike

 

when all i see from the Simulation craft is that they want Multistrike and more multistrike!

This is pasted directly from sim craft: 

Crit 12.91% 7.91% 320

 

Haste

35.60% 7.62% 762

 

Multistrike

21.44% 14.85% 980

 

Damage / Heal Versatility

3.49% 0.49% 64

 

Attack Power

4670 3768 0

 

Mastery

47.18% 34.68% 646

 

Armor

1849 1849 1849

Hope you can help me understand why your guide is not matching the sim craft you are linking to

The stat priority had a bit of a problem. It should be fixed now. Thank you for pointing it out.

so we gem + enchant multistrike now? No Mastery anymore? Or do I get this wrong? (Cause stat priority changed though)

No worries mate...you should be using Defile on bosses to. Its a significant increase from DnD. Is it not part of your rotation?

You show Multistrike as the #1 stat, yet go for Mastery gems/enchants/food? Is that a mistake after changing those two in the order?

Just another thing.. Since multistrike is on top of the prio list surely we must gem and enchant in multistrike right? since it says mastery on the guide

I always read your guides for all of my toons. Thanks for this. My DK is lvl 81, so the consumables you have here are useless to me right now because they require lvl 90. What do you suggest for my lvl?

I don't understand. You say that Haste is our worst stat, but on the other hand you want us to use Runic Corruption, which scales with Haste obviously. Also it would be nice to know why prior to that it was stated that Blood Tap was best, because as far as I see it, Blood Tap gives me 1 Death Rune guaranteed for 75 Runic Power while Runic Empowerment gives me a 45% chance for 1 Death Rune per 30 Runic Power, which seems a bit random but should be overall better?

 

I really would have the logic explained behind having Haste as our worst stat, but picking Runic Corruption as rune refresher.

Hei, and cheers for a great guide!

 

Is it possible somehow to imitate an simmulare effect like this mage macro with defile? 

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast Frostbolt
  • /cast Freeze

Using a macro such as the one above will enable you to automatically make use of wow_icon_spell_frost_frostnova.jpg Freeze whenever it comes off cooldown. Remember that wow_icon_spell_frost_frostbolt02.jpg Frostbolt does not consume the charges of wow_icon_ability_mage_wintersgrasp.jpg Fingers of Frost that Freeze generates. Also, making your Water Elemental cast Freeze while you are casting Frostbolt will have no incidence on your cast of Frostbolt.

      Ny'alotha Allseer is a N'Zoth-themed mount added to the game in Patch 8.3. It is rewarded from a quest and could very well be the end-of-expansion reward for everyone, who defeats N'Zoth on Heroic difficulty before the next expansion, similar to Legion's Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal.

      Last week, Blizzard added Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren along with encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Darion Mograine to the game. In this week's PTR build, four Death Knight Swords have been added.
      If Allied Races and the Pandaren will indeed be able to become Death Knights in Patch 8.3, it would make perfect sense to revamp the starting zone, because the current one is outdated now that Bolvar is the Lich King.
      Blizzard added four Ebon Blade swords to the game on 8.3 PTR that will likely be rewarded to new Death Knights created in Visions of N'Zoth as part of the overhauled starting experience.

      There's more class changes coming to the PTR and Visions of N'zoth, as Discipline Priests' Schism will only increase damage done from Priest effects only. For other class changes, featuring more Priest tweaks, as well as Druid, Mage, Monk, Paladin and Warlock entries, check out our initial coverage of patch 8.3.

      I’ve added the following new fix to the notes in the OP:
      Priest
      Discipline Schism now increases damage done from Priest spells and abilities only. Developers’ notes: This is intended to be consistent with other class cooldowns. Other Patch 8.3 Content:
