It's okay. It's single target pressure really just isn't there though. It's a sad day when frost is still the better spec to play as in shadowcleave


I'm pretty disappointed in unholy, as I'd rather play that than frost.
On EU the best DKs all play Unholy though. There's a couple of Frost DKs in there but not many.

It's just different metas really.

Mastery > versa for unholy, no question. Multistrike (and crit) are currently shit in pvp.

I'm thinking the same, but I haven't seen any high rated Dks going for versa. Everyone is stacking Multistrike. (EU)

Yeah, I agree. I always forget that you play over on EU. It just doesnt workout over here, I really tried to make it work though. Uphill battle, I havent play with a ret this season yet though and I feel that is probably why this is harder than it should be

It's a stupid term that basically means "where the game currently is in its evolution of how it is played by its players". EU and NA have different "metas" because they are largely different player groups who take the the game "to the next level" in different directions. The "meta" evolves over the course of the season, and will change based on patch notes and new discoveries of mechanics.

Some examples are right now unholy is better than frost on EU, but frost is better than unholy on US. In Mists of pandaria, alliance was the better faction to be on EU, while horde was the better faction on US. cleaves are more popular on US right now, while "skill comps" are more popular on EU. Survival hunters were more popular in seasons 8 on KR, While marksman was the only spec played during season 8 on US.

The meta even changes based on what ratings you play at, to add to the above.

On lower ratings, the comps that burst up-front with unforgiving mechanics are much more powerful than they are on higher ratings.

This is why it can be a real struggle for some teams to climb out of that rating bracket. If you're queueing a comp that doesn't do well against rushdown, it will be harder on the lower ratings no matter how good you are.
