Hey there! What's the best DK spec for 3s at the moment? :) Me and my friends are thinking about running Ele/DK/Rdruid, and I was wondering if either Frost or Unholy would be better in this comp. And also if the comp is viable at all for 3 friends who want to try and improve as players and maybe push 2-2.2 eventually. :)


Get him to roll enh and go frost - enh - rdruid. Its like a worse version of turbo cleave but you could get 2k easily enough with it.

Thanks a bunch bud! Not sure if anyone else will have any other opinions on this :) But if my friend is happy to go Enhance then I'll consider it for sure! :)

Soul Reaper buffed for all specs. Should be a bit more interesting now. Now we can finally hit the 100k execute mark with all cds up. Good buffs for Unholy overall.

Frost (DW frost mostly) is going to benefit from that 10% Necro Plague buff (in the context of Rbgs). Unholy should perform better, but I am not sure if anyone is still going to take Unholy over DW frost.

It looks like Unholy is getting 10% more on Death Coil and blood boil. Yipeee!

Well, 10% more disease damage isn't bad.

Here's hoping the buff sticks. What I'd really like to see is the glyph for un dispellable to be less punishing, It would make unholy be less of a punished rot spec.

I mostly look at this from rbgs, so I have no clue what arena will look like.

This, DW frost just feels like a mess between fury warrior and rogue.

What glyph would we even sacrifice though, that's the problem.

We just need the old unholy blight dispel protection back on death coils.

Completely legit points. Maybe what if blood plauge (and not frost fever) was just undispellable? (baseline)

I think it would be nicer for unholy to have more fun with diseases outside of talents.

I think having a passively undispellable disease is boring and doesn't allow for counterplay. You can LoS/outrange death coils to allow for dispels.

Dispelling Necrotic at 10+ stacks is so punishing for an UH DK's pressure there needs to be some way to prevent it. With the old Blight, you could make an effort to stack up on RP and then use it when NP starts doing real damage so they can't get rid of it so easily.

Anyone tried ptr? I'm sure frost will still be ahead, but before I play ww or arms full time, figured I'd ask is unholy any better with buffs?

~10% to several abilities would only make or break a warlock. It will definitely be nice, but at most it would be on par with frost.

Doubt it will be on par with frost seems as frost is getting all the 10% buffs too.
