What should we do against monks? everytime i run against WW in arenas i get disarmed so long and so often its frustating (@#$% ring of fake peace). Is it worth in this case to use a weapon with sword-shattering rune? Id rather have more uptime and less dmg than RotFC and barely any uptime on my target.

Hey Pachy! Great job on the guide again. Only change i would make is to update the Jewelcrafting Gems to Resplendent Serpent's Eye.

Also, for people who have trouble keeping up necrotics, I macro my Blood Tap with Necrotic Strike. It works for me pretty well, its kinda nice.


I agree with the resplendent Serpent eye as your jewelcrafting gems.

However, you should NOT macro blood tap to necrotic strike. the beauty of blood tap is to have an extra rune available for whenever you need it, mostly for necrotics, but you will never be able to setup burst if you don't allow your blood tap to stack and keep using it every time you press necrotic strike.

What i do is have my blood tap bound to the same key as necrotic strike, but with a modifier.
I press W for necrotic strike, and Shift+W for blood tap. Once you get used to it you'll find yourself becoming more aware of your runes and finding the optimal time to use blood tap.

So, for rbgs should I cast Gorefiend's Grasp on myself or my target?

See a RoF? See a Vortex? Run over to it and grip everyone onto you. (If you're close nough that is.)

Cant seem to find solid info on haste vs mastery. And if haste is best what breaking point are we trying to reach?

And no disrespect intended but the guy who wrote this guide is 1600 rated in arenas (2s) and 1800 in rbgs. Shouldn't we be looking to a more experienced/competent DK with a guide as to how to play Unholy proper?


*sigh*

Shouldn't we be looking to a more experienced/competent DK with a guide as to how to play Unholy proper? Or at least, why are we sticky'ing this one? [edit] Or perhaps i missed something about the authors experience.

This is a compilation of information that Pachyderm has gathered from other DK PvPer's. High end pvper's don't care about the general public in wow except for maybe a few like Reinhart(actually he's pretty much the only one that I know of from any class who does).

As for judging someone's skill based on arena ratings alone maybe you should improve on your own before questioning others. Looking at your gear and pvp achieves Pachyderm may as well be a 2.2k+ unholy DK as far as you should be concerned.

As for the reforges, which have been stated many times mastery>haste if your taking the blood tap talent if not then haste>mastery.

So gc is going to do something to stop us from sitting in blood presence. Good change? Bad?

I'm ok with it
