Would love to see this happen at some point for Unholy.

1. Instant Cast
2. Reduced to a 3 min CD
3. Damage increased by Mastery

1. I would love to see a glyph to make it instant for all specs

2. Would have to be severely nerfed to have that low of a cd- no thanks

3. See 2

That would be cool. Please nothing like stampede though. More along the lines of treants, summons 3 ghouls that do auto attack dmg and put up dots? Maybe give a 4 second root or something too.

Since we're spit balling, it would also be entertaining if they didn't focus on one target, but rather each one picked a different target to harass.

continuing the spitballing, what if Unholy got a cleave like Storm, Earth, and Fire like how Wind Walker's are getting, only they summon Ghouls instead of copies of themselves.

Numbers aside, just focusing on mechanics.

In some of the LFR long fights I get to use Army twice. I think it's great dps burst with an appropriate CD, you just have to feel out the best time to use it. I like that it's an ARMY od the Dead and not TRIO of the Dead. Shorter CD, less ghouls =/= an army.

Right, I agree that the whole Army thing is great and one of the reasons I would want to see it more often.

The Cleave I had mentioned would just be a new spell entirely, which I should have clarified.

Frost already has a natural Cleave with Howling Blast, would be interesting to see UH with one.

1. Would have to be a glyph or talent. Not bad though.
2. Dropping to 3 min would mean a giant nerf to their damage output per use. Would kind of negate the benefit of a shorter CD.
3. The damage they do is not a issue. At best they might boost it by a % of mastery, but not the full amount.

No thanks, the army AI and usability is pretty stupid, I don't want the spec nerfed to accommodate for that, especially when some encounters aren't army friendly

Sounds positively horrible. It would make our army break ALL THE CCs in a near proximity to us.

Would be a nightmare for arenas. Your partner CCs an enemy healer, both pop coolies on the kill target, wait wtf is that, my army went and broke the CC, and now the healer is free casting, good job ya dumb pet.

One thing I always thought would be cool is if Dark Infusion, instead of empowering your ghoul, summoned skeletons or shambling corpses instead. Dark Transformation would then combine your undead minions into your Undead Monstrosity.

Or just make the Ghoul a constant, and make the dark transformation affect the dk to turn them into something half cool or something. That way your not completely reliant on the pet. Well it at least sounds cool.

Free! Make Army free! There are very few cooldowns that cost resources in this game (outside of tank abilities) for a very good reason. Cooldowns having big costs suck.

Outside DRW, I'm having a hard time thinking of an actual non-active mitigation tank CD that actual has a meaningful cost outside some kinda heal.

But yea, Army costing 1/2 our runes and having a channel is kinda stupid and wrath-esque.

Dk is fine where it is. Dont need anymore abilities. That's why your class is messed up.
