To add to this list I would also include;

* Sacrifice gargoyles
* Include a pet attack mouse over macro, I personally chose to bind this with runestrike(same bind, 2 uses).
* (optional) bind blood tap to strangulate
* Let them know that Ams stops poisons being applied
* Include a list of uses for lichborne eg. breaks: fear, mind control/ prevents but does not break: Poly, hex
* Let them know that you can use lichborne during any cc(bar silence effects) to prevent upcoming ccs eg. warstomp -> hex or poly->poly
* Let them know gargoyle is affected by UP but not BP
* Include the Corpse explosion macro
* Let it be known that its better to use Strangulate and Mindfreeze early in a heal lock-out combo to prevent cooldowns being used in the middle of it that will ruin the combo such as aura mastery or pain suppression. eg. dont gnaw -> dg -> Mf -> Strang, Aim for Strang -> Mf -> gnaw -> dg

Use what you feel important, sorry if you don't feel these are significant

13. If your partner calls out that they've been Scattered, the hunter is most likely going to lay a trap. Have your pet leap to your partner and Stay in order to counter this. This should work.
/cast [target=partnersname] Leap
/petstay


This is the best thing I have ever heard of ever.

I definitely think this should be sticky'd. All useful tips that would be very helpful to a new dk and save a fair question threads.

A couple subtle things you may or may not choose to include:

1) Death grip can be spell reflected or grounded, but ignores the effect of CloS.

2) Plague Strike will also ignore CloS and apply a debuff to prevent clean vanishes.

3) Against priests, draw your ghoul back when they go to hymn behind a pillar(divine or hope), and then leap back and gnaw it.  Leaving the ghoul on the priest will most likely lead to them shackling the ghoul and channeling freely out of LOS.

4) Glyph of Disease will refresh diseases on an AMSed DK.

5) Use Death Strike!  There's often no better use for your FU runes if you're getting focused and your healer is CC'ed.  Especially against wizard cleave (relative absence of MS), if you can't LoS, death striking a nearby pet can save your life.

6) In that same vein, if a player doesn't have their pet micromanaged properly (passive with /petfollow macro), they are usually tauntable.

7) In 3s as TSG/PHD, use AMZ to help score a kill.  If you can prevent counter-burst on your hunter or warrior, it gives them the chance to cleave harder and ignore their defensive cooldown buttons, leading to great success and much happiness.

*Make 2 binds for frost presence, 1 with blood tap bound into it if you absolutely have to be in frost right this second and another without blood tap being bound to it.
