  • Prismatic Gems:

    You will have a tremendous amount of stats as you start unlocking all Gem slots, and there is no single best stat to stack. Try and balance your stats well as Unholy both loves Mastery, but all your special effects from Tinker gems scale with Haste, Crit and Vers!

    • Sunstrider's Flourish Icon Sunstrider's Flourish — Good synergy with your crit rating, providing passive AoE damage from your crits.

    • Incendiary Terror Icon Incendiary Terror — Damage proc with an additional CC whenever it procs!
    • Fervor Icon Fervor — Consume 2% of your health when you are above 80% to deal damage to your enemies. Good throughput talent that does require some healing to keep up!

Leveling Rotation for Unholy Death Knight

When using our slider, note that some talents may appear sooner than you expect them to in the rotation. This is because we have two recommended builds above, each taking talents at slightly different times, and sometimes entirely different talents.

Starting, you will only have one main Rune attack ability: Rune Strike Icon Rune Strike, as well as Death Coil Icon Death Coil (level 2) to spend your Runic Power that you generate.

  1. Rune Strike Icon Rune Strike is your main damaging ability.
  2. Army of the Dead Icon Army of the Dead should be saved for elites and very strong mobs since it is an extremely long cooldown that does a large amount of single-target burst damage.
  3. Use Apocalypse Icon Apocalypse, make sure the target you pick has 4 Festering Wound Icon Festering Wounds!
  4. Use Unholy Blight Icon Unholy Blight off cooldown to apply Virulent Plague Icon Virulent Plague.
  5. Outbreak Icon Outbreak should be used to apply Virulent Plague Icon Virulent Plague to all targets when Unholy Blight Icon Unholy Blight is on cooldown.
  6. Dark Transformation Icon Dark Transformation can be used off cooldown, however, you should also make sure you have it available for larger packs of mobs or more difficult packs.
  7. Use Epidemic Icon Epidemic when there are 2+ targets.
  8. Use Death and Decay Icon Death and Decay on packs of 2+ mobs.
  9. Use Death and Decay Icon Death and Decay to Scourge Strike Icon Scourge Strike cleave packs of 2+ mobs.
