Top dps spec in 5.4 from logs

Death Knight
What is the consensus for the highest DK DPS spec in 5.4 from logs?
it varies.

dw frost at bis. i believe unholy is better as long as you have a fabled feather of ji-kun but im not 100% sure.
here comes jack with another name and guild!
I've been playing around with both DW frost and unholy, using unholy with a mastery heavy build. In my personal experience unholy seems to be pulling more dps for most fights. Whether or not this is due to my feather, or differences in ability with both specs I am unsure. However, raidbots seems to have unholy DKs performing better at the moment (single target fights specifically), which is consistent with my personal experience.

More or less because most dks that are playing unholy right now either still have their heroic feather and haven't gotten a replacement yet or have the 4 piece but haven't gotten 2 1 handers for DW. Also another thing to note that the graph on raidbots shows the average rounded dps of the specs from all the logs on WoL and places them accordingly so what you see isn't an exact number of the highest the specs are doing but more what they are averaging out to be at the current moment.

I'd say this is due to your feather - top parses for UH include the feather still.

Things will change as SoO pushes on.
