UH DK Training

Death Knight
Does anyone know whats the best place i can go to, to help me learn uh dk more?
YouTube.

MFWest is where I learned a lot (PvP specific)

Slayer is pretty good for PvE.

Preacher usually has class guides as well.

I think preach focuses mainly on Blood DK tank.

Yeah, I watched a couple of his vids where he was playing unholy...it was funny, but definently misplayed. Hitting arbiter without full rp and doom procs, after using DT with shoulders on.
Essentially there are 3 builds for Unholy:

Dark Arb, which isn't even that great without the shoulders. This is the "top" raid spec, in PvP it's pretty lacky luster. You should run Unholy Frenzy for this build over clawing shadows.

Soul reaper, which would work better for you with your legendaries. This is a good ST spec, and the go to for PvP generally.

"Pad Spec" involving epidemic and defile. Good for padding meters in PvP and good for clearing trash in M+.

The general rotation is pretty easy, just a lot to keep track of.

1) always keep plague on the target
2) Use apocolypse when wounds >= 6: Line up with soul reaper if talented
3) Death Coil (proc or usable unless saving for arbiter)
4) DarkTrans/Blighted RW on CD (use these together if SR build)
5a) Soul reaper if off CD (Every 2nd SR should line up with Apoc) and:
5b) If Fester Wounds > 3 : Scourge strike
5c) if Fester Wounds < 3 : Festering Strike
6) DnD for cleave Scourges on multiple things, otherwise it's not really worth using

Practice on dummies to learn how to keep track. I'm never rune starved as Unholy and even with effective play you'll find yourself rune capped or RP capped quite a bit compared to Frost, which usually starves out pretty often if you aren't getting good rng.
I grabbed the m+ /solo talent general spec off wowhead which has defile. Is that not good for m+? I’m pretty much just screwing around with unholy and go frost when I need to be serious.

But what is the generally recommended set up for m+ and world content?
