Play haste and focus on playing PHD exclusively if you truly think Death Knight is for you.

Otherwise, roll warrior...you'll probably notice a huge weight lifted off your shoulder

(not that I have ever bothered to re roll or am speaking from first-hand experience)

edit: Holy Pally (thought considerably sub par) is probably the best variant for the comp outside of holy priest.

They provide great mobility...which is inevitably DK's most prominent weak point.

On topic: I heard PHD and Scleave are decent. Other than that you could try just playing with a warrior or mage, cause..you know...it's a warrior and mage;]

I tried it at start of season (before warriors attained god-like status through weapons) with people I didn't really play with a lot and back then it was alright. Tried again a week or 3 ago with a long-term partner and every warrior/x/x would just shit on him (the ret) and there was nothing we could do. We found we had the most success by abandoning strategies and simply popping all cds on the healer and hope they're retarded enough to screw up.

If they live your opener, you lose.

Boomkin/DK/RSham or MW can work. Kinda.. Seems decent against caster cleaves and caster/melee comps but any melee cleave or warrior/hunter cleave is going to push your shit in.

Shadowcleave with a MW or Paladin is decent. Would probably work with a Druid too, since that class works with everything. Doubt it would work well with a Shaman because your peels would be insufficient against any "train the blue" comp.

PHD would be good.

Double DK is great if you're only quing into RShamans (lololol).

DK/Mage would work, because... Mage.

DK/Rogue works decently, especially again if you're quing into a lot of RShamans.

PHD, shadowplay but take away dk put war and u go 200 + in raiting.

Then there is sham boom dk, but this comp isn't easy and require lots pillar hugging and def play.

This whole comp choosing would be easier if war/mages got nerfed.

I tried Ret/DK/Priest, doesn't work anymore atm. We got to 1950 or so then stopped too frustrating to play.

I played ret+dk too but could only get 2k by facerolling healers..

Also tried boomkin+dk and gor farmed by 1.8k teams (but that's we suck :P)

I'd say tsg/phd/shadowcleave now but all of them are bad compared to %95 of the comps other classes have anyways :)

PHD / Shadowcleave gets destroyed by WMx but then again what doesn't?

I'm gonna be trying dk/moonkin/rsham but I don't have high hopes in all fairness.

PHD is a good cleave in my opinion. Shadowcleave is fine aswell, as long as you get a good gate and you know how to play defensive.
I also tried DK/Boomy/Chaman and it worked fine, it's not that powerfull but it has a lot of defensive potential and you can set up good phases of burst.

I have been playing | Mage/DK/Hpally | the last two weeks and have actually had a quite high rate of succes in doing so. The setup is by no means as good as the 'great' setups out there at the moment, but it has potential. With tripple stun, double silence, PoM-sheeps and pally fears it is indeed not lacking CC and can actually peel quite well; the only downside is that it requires a lot of setup. (and setup can not always compete with raw damage output in this expansion, lol)

We are playing at ~2,2k mmr at the moment and it is definitely possible to go higher, but it requires a great deal of setup. More than often at this rating we can force a few defensives and a trinket in the opener against most teams, simply because of the crazy amount of instant cc to lockdown everyone including the kill target.

Hope you find a setup you can be satisfied with - PHD, Shadowcleave and TSG are probably the top DK setups at the moment.

I can confirm that dk/enhance/holy pala/priest is alright. I've played it to 2300+ with ups and downs. It really matters who/what comp you face in order to win because sometimes we play really well and lose and the other way around.

Anyway got my warrior now 516ilvl already. CAP DAY TOMORROW ASWELL
