No need for tons of pages. The only point you need to know is to respec frost. Unholy can't do enough burst to take down a geared healer in 5.2. Dot damage which is supposed to cause pressure is still crap, and healers can spam 100k non crit heals all day.

Thanks a bunch for posting this, stickied :)

I will say that it feels a bit too, oh what's the word, abridged? It feels like you don't explain enough things in detail, such as ability descriptions, why certain things are useful at certain moments, etc.

The part in the talent section where you talk about lichborne and the level 57 tier is a good example. A true beginner won't have intimate knowledge of what all these abilities do and how to use them effectively. You should include descriptions of EVERY ability, and explain why and how it's useful or preferential.

I feel you are neglecting remorseless winter. It may be in theory hard to apply but many people actually take very little notice of it so they get stunned anyway, anyway you can always use it as a slow or as a repellent against Melee classes.

I had this period of time where I kept calling it Dark Pact. I don't know why.


Well Dark Pact was a spell, so it's not completely out of the blue.

A lock spell, but still!

Remorseless winter is definitely not even comparable to DG in arena or GG in rbgs. It occasionally stuns someone, versus a second trinket or amazing synergistic ability.

Also in your stat priority, I don't think str/crit/mastery should be above pvp power, and I wouldn't gem bold in anything, rather str/resil in red sockets.

Under glyphs, glyph of death grip is heavily employed for rbgs. It's also important to note that ams glyph causes your shield to break sooner, which removes your immunity to magic based cc- sometimes a very bad thing against caster cleaves.

Under macros, it can be useful to macro leap to gnaw with unholy to make sure your stuns go off.

Another aspect I might talk about is the importance of transforming your pet, holding gnaw/leap for xform, and how to xform faster/pool rp during xform to reapply after it wears off.

Otherwise looks like a good start

I may have to delegate this guide to someone else. I think it's time to move on from Death Knight.


why's that...

I had an epiphany and wanted to try something new.
You'll come back.

You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.
