General Information

On this page, we go over several of the most frequently asked questions regarding Unholy Death Knight in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth Shadowlands 9.0.2. This will be updated as more common repeated questions surface over the course of the expansion.


Does the Target Capping on Abilities Affect Unholy's Place in Mythic+?

It does, since Unholy's niche in Mythic+ was to dominate massive pulls, which will no longer be the meta; despite this, Unholy is still a very powerful spec and it still may have a place in Mythic+.


How does the Loss of Corruption Affect Unholy?

It significantly hurts Unholy's damage kit, however the negative affects of Corruption were something that not many people enjoyed, so there is a benefit to Corruption going away in the Shadowlands pre-patch.


Are Sims Supported for Pre-Patch?

Sims will not be supported for pre-patch, so try out the new builds that Frost Death Knight has to offer and experiment, also keep updated with our guides here to see what are the best options.
