Not touched the game for some time now but payed for a month today on the site to just mess about and shit.

Anyways, What is the best unholy DPS spec?

See what I did? I specified what I am after. Dont post telling me I should go blood or frost. If I keep playing itll be the ODD heroics 5-mans or 10-man raids.

So please, if you are gonna reply here, then reply to what I am asking, no advice needed about other specs.

I logged on today and found myself logging out after 10 minutes haha...maybe I just lost the touch but wanna at least get my money´s worth before the sub is out.

thank you and all that shit

I'd go with something like http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=jfVMVZZfMbhxckgcoMfsut , altho I generally avoid unholy specs if I can so probably a couple of points in there that might be better spent.

I seem to have an unerring ability to replicate cookie-cutter builds with no prior knowledge of them. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not.

Standard build with glyph of plague strike, and counting on having another DK in the raid who already has unholy aura. No randomness in rotations either, with this one.

...or you can go with the build Ash and Deadly posted, except I'd probably move points from dirge into outbreak, since you'll never be RP starved with the 4tier7 bonus anyway. Also that one relies on the scourge strike glyph and mashing the button like a nutcase.

Many thanks for the help all of you! :)

Now, enlighten me, what is the best cookiecut tanking spec? Feel free to choose any spec, specced towards unholy is as fine as frost. (Doubt blood works for raids)

Heuj tau ^_^

Its zhe Osseh -> Cleai -> Clown Mordro

Anyhow. Basicly every spec works fine for tanking as dk. You only really need prot gear and then ofcourse some vital talent choices.

Both are like a must imo
5/5 Blade barrier
5/5 Toughness
x/5 Anticipation (depends on your dodge %)

Then choices come up..
Which way to go.. blood, frost or unholy

Depends on my mood in which spec i tank i pick these following specs

Blood
http://www.wow-europe.com/en/info/basics/talents/deathknight/talents.html?tal=035202153330330320100101300305020 51300000000000000000000332000000000000000000000000 00

Frost
http://www.wow-europe.com/en/info/basics/talents/deathknight/talents.html?tal=005002000000000000000000000325250 51305301103010051113510322000000000000000000000000 00

Unholy
http://www.wow-europe.com/en/info/basics/talents/deathknight/talents.html?tal=005000000000000000000000000305200 01000000000000000000002352020351001050031500031331 51

I know all look like dps specs alot, but they work for me :)

Blood = great single target dps with the vamparic blood (which can last for 30 sec with glpyh) and only a minute cd you can have a shitload of hp (had about 52k raidbuffed orso) in combination with rune tap i usually tank in this spec, enough survival tricks.

Frost = semi single target and aoe effective, kinda the underdog imo of the three talent trees but can work out very effective when handling more then 3/4 mobs. Frost gives a lot of survival tricks on your sleeve, but still tps wise compared to others its a bit weaker.

Unholy = perfect multiple aoe tanking, you wont have any problem with tps on multiple mobs and is really easy to adjust to single target tps. Not many to no survival abilities, but heyyy! for that healers were invented.. yeah bone armor, isnt exactly to completely count on.

Thing is, all three talent trees got enough to tank with atleast heroics and raiding which is live in 3.0

Making the choice which spec fits you most is prolly the spec you lvled with and the rotation is like blindly burned in your fingers. All ya gotta do is to press that rune strike a lot more during the rotation :p

Atm i tank with this
http://www.wow-europe.com/en/info/basics/talents/deathknight/talents.html?tal=005502050030020000000000000005000 00000000000000000000002352000050031050531010031031 00

Single target tps/breath eat spec for sarth 3 drakes. But i can still run heroics and raids with this spec. I know it isnt great for doing the other things, but its lovely to eat breaths ^^

Hope ya got some answers tau, i know started typing and couldnt stop.. darn me :(

Ciao cow kevin,
Mordro/cleai/Osseh!

Now, ive gone with this build: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=jfVMVZZfMbhxckgcoMfsut

What glyphs to go with?

osseous

tank or dps glyphs?

Ashborn

Blood tank spec: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=jcEMV0hIcbotzAZhxbzhZ0g
Frost: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=jcvMZGxxzGeb0hoVosx0g

Frost is in fact up there with blood on single-target threat, if not better, and very good at aoe as well. Unholy on the other hand is plain terrible.

Glyphs for the spec that Ashen linked pls. :)

If you mean the unholy dps spec, icy touch, scourge strike and ghoul.

Yes, that was what I had in mind. Dont remember what I have atm so I will check.

Tnx!

Yeah I'm with Ashen also, anything including HB can pump out some riddiculus aoe damage hence its ezmode for multimob tanking and i never experienced single target threat as much of an issue when being frost. Froststrike make DC look lame as a RP dump also with a big fat 2 hander.

Outbreak and Glyph of Plague Strike is probably one the worst choices compared to glyph og Scourge Strike, which can send you into an almost endless Scourge Strike spam.

Might consider moving 1 point from necrosis to virulence, especially if you aren't intending to raid.

No, just no.
