Anyone have any ideas?

I just found out about the change to the unholy mastery...where does that fall in now? I can't seem to find any up-to-date guides, but I have a feeling mastery have moved up a few notches.

Stat priority is the same for DK's as it has always been. Hit cap > spell pen cap > Res/Strength > Haste > Mastery

Haste is still better than mastery. With Death's Advance, you don't need resil gems anymore, so stack strength.

DERP WITH DEATHS ADVANCE WHY WOULD U STACK HASTE TO MAKE DEATHS ADVANCE RUN OUT FASTER??


Doesn't work that way, derp.

Wondering how stacking mastery would work. Has Anyone Really tried it? I am a firm Follower of the Haste, but i can see where the mastery would be beneficial. I can't tell you for sure, all i can say is ill give it a go to see how it works and come back to make another post. The Acid Test never fails.

I just tested Mastery vs Haste w/ reforging gear difference was approx 4% haste - 7% bonus Shadow dmg. w/ Rivendare spec was w/ haste 10k dps & w/ mastery 10.5k .... without Rivendare spec w/ haste 9.5k dps & w/ mastery 10k...

For each I did my best rotation on Highlord Nemisis Trainor for 10min. in PvP gear...Not sure how this will translate in Arenas but I found it interesting none the least. I would appreciate any and all relevant feedback. Thanks

I just put together an unholy spec as I grew tired of Frost, and I have my mastery at 14.5 and I have noticed a huge difference from where it was prior to 4.0.6. It feels better and I dont feel I need to spec down to get improved oblit. SS is now hitting like a truck again.

Haste haste haste! You not only gain damage in the long run but you also gain utility. Mastery only affects the SHADOW portion of SS, blood plague, death coil and that's about it. Most of your pressure is going to come from stacking NS anyways.

Is this the same for both Frost and UH? I am a freshly ding'd DK myself.

PvP stat priority is this:

Spell Pen = 195

Hit = 600

Gemming= either gem pure str after you cover spell pen OR gem 20 str 20 res in red sockets 40 res in yellow sockets.


Reforging= reforge everything to haste.


You do not care about crit, or expertise, or mastery. You should still reforge mastery to haste.

The only thing that changed is that given the choice between a mastery peice and a crit piece, you now choose mastery. And then you still reforge that to haste.

Still Haste as Usual. Did find a seemingly good balance of a little mastery and haste and ever since havent had a hard time with anything but for all those that cant find anything . Haste is better than mastery.

Unholy runes should never be up, as you should be blasting necrotic every time it's up.
