Scarlet Fever for PVE unholy

Death Knight
I was looking at the splash options after unholy is filled, and some pve guides like on here and elitist jerks. A lot of them say that it is good to pick up scarlet fever as a raid debuff, but no one discusses the advantage of having another disease as a disease multiplier for scourge strike. Wouldn't that be a pretty big deal to have 4 disease multipliers instead of 3 considering that it would be a lot more damage for scourge strike? someone enlighten me. It could even be one point i suppose
That's because Scarlet Fever isn't a disease and doesn't benefit Scourge Strike.

In addition, it's also not extended by Festering Strike presently, unlike Ebon Plaguebringer, meaning it's not really worth it in an Unholy spec even if you want to be every tank's best friend.
ah ok thank you
Most raid groups will have the ability to apply it in a way that's easier than you having to spend points to get it. Every tank has the capability to apply it (though some easier than others *cough*).
Your blood tank might appreciate the pocket debuffing if your into that sort of thing.
imo your blood tank would appreciate it more if you spent those points picking up amz for the raid instead. dps loss from the talents you drop is almost negligible.

Unless your talking about Chogall hm where you let a mage get 100 stacks to wtfomfgbbqchcicken dps AMZ is worthless. Just no. On both this and scarlet fever. As if every tank doesn't already bring this to the table we need a dps to...

DK tanks shouldn't put up diseases.
