Unholy Deathknight DPS (3.3.3)

Post  Ozmademos on Sat May 08, 2010 1:01 am

This post is intended to help those not familiar with alot of the Unholy DK mechanics to get a simple overview

0/17/54 is the spec, but it isnt the only viable spec. there is also a blood/unholy spec that works very well for new 80s, but since the tier 9 gear is so easy to get at this point. that spec is only useful for a few weeks before falling behind in damage.

Here's the link:
Just cut and paste it. It leaves no points open for you to choose something extra... sorry
***Note: The Link has Glyphs Already in there for You***

If you really wanted to, you could take the points from this and put them into something for utility at a little loss in damage, such as Ghoul Frenzy or Morbidity

Ghoul Frenzy
Your Ghoul is a significant part of you damage. If you find you have trouble keeping him alive (no pun intended!) then go for this talent.

This is a great gain in AoE fights, but a loss for single target dps.


Sigil of the Hanged Man
Basically, the go-to sigil for normal boss fights... but if you dont think you can keep up the buff, then go with Sigil of Virulence.

Sigil of Virulence
Best for movement fights.


Hit: you'll need 8%, or 263 hit rating (7% if you're a Draenei)

Expertise: it's not anything you need to stack, but will 6.5% cap it, or 214 expertise rating (note, though, that being a human or dwarf and using certain weapons can help you get capped faster).

Strength: give you all your Attack Power. most important stat

Crit: makes your hits hit bigger every so often, but relatively low on the totem pole.

Armor Pen: it's good, better than Crit, but not as good as Strength or Haste.

Haste: most important stat under Hit and Strength, because it works so well with Icy Veins.

Attack Power: you'll get it from strength

Agility: not all that big for dps. the AP and Crit from Agil isnt as good as just getting the Str by itself

Armor: wear plate =)


Two-hander: Fallen Crusader


Meta: Relentless (+21 Agil and +3% crit dmg)
Red: Bold (+20 Str)
Yellow: Etched (+10 Str and +10 Hit) or Rigid (+16 Hit) if you arent hit capped. Otherwise, you're better off going for all red.
Blue: Nightmare Tear (obviously you can only get just one, so put it in a good slot!)


Luckily for Unholy, there tends to be a rotation of sorts.
For Single Targets:

1 ) Plague Strike
2 ) Icy Touch
3 ) Blood Strike
4 ) Scourge Strike
5 ) Blood Strike
6 ) Death Coil
7 ) Horn of Winter (if you find everything else is on cooldown)
8 ) Go to 4

For Multi-Targets:
1 ) Icy Touch
2 ) Plague Strike
3 ) Pestilence
4 ) Death and Decay
5 ) Death Coil
7 ) Horn of Winter
8 ) Scourge Strike
9 ) Blood Strike
10 ) Blood Boil
Then, it's a matter of keeping up Scourge Strike, Death Coils (when you have the Runic Power), Pestilence, and Death and Decay.
