I love blood, and once more high end gear comes out I have a good feeling its going to turn into a popular build for pvp.

Big burst, great survivability, lots of anti CC abilities. I think its a great spec for cleave teams.

oh agree'ed. but for right now blood sadly gets bumped to the bottom :(. def my favorite spec, i just with deathstrike healed for more as blood then it does now in unholy.

also the 51 pt needs a revamp imo. unholy is nice aggro for tanking, ice offers cc for our glass cannon spec( not as defensive as the blood tree or the unholy tree overall) and bloods just is lack luster. only time ive ever liked it was when i lagged out and it casted hystaria on me when i did my own.

10 / 11 / 50 instead of 21 0 50

Why lichborne:

- no global, no rune or rp cost
- 25% miss
- Immunity to fear, charm, sleep, polymorph, hex and sap
- Can be used WHILE feared
- Sick DC spam on yourself costing only 20 rp with the glyph
- 30 yd on chains of ice
- The downsides of being undead can be neutralized with AMS

i like it alot, decreased snares + even more anti cc

edit: i would consider dropping two-hand weapon spec or maybe even blood caked blade to get unholy aura, its just too good to pass up

Why no max Blade Barrier?
Wouldn't Rage of Rivendare be more damage than 2h spec+Bladed Armor?

Don't really know how so big chunk of ap increases your dmg and haven't done any calculations. But good point there didn't really put thought into those talents :P

I like the 2 rp from butchery cause a lot of times I have 59 / 39 RP and it generates a lot of RP over time, it adds up. Just a preferance here.

Unholy aura is also a preference just depends who are you grouping with, obviously if all your teammates have 15% already it's useless.

23 0 48

23 points in blood that will give really good survivability whit rune tap and mark of blood.

and the 48 points in unholy for the dps ;) you can remove the unholy aura and put it somewhere else, thats your own choice I guess :)

Is it just me or is unholy TERRIBLE for dps? It feels like I can't kill a thing since everyone has 15-20k health, and that's only going to be improved with resilience and twice as much stamina on pvp gear. I think I'm going to be speccing blood for sure for arena.

I felt the same, so i went frost and i'm destroying people. But it might be due to the fact that frost = burst spec and nobody has resilience

Unholy does sick damage. Just spam scourge strike with all your diseases up.

Yeah, well either way I don't really feel good about how we're going to do in arena with this little damage. We may be forced to spec unholy cause of anti magic shell which means we're pretty much going to be useless against melee teams.

Still doesn't even get remotely close to the damage that frost and blood have.

Except that it does if the enemy has any kind of slow and can kite you, compared to blood that is.

you underestimate diseases too

unholy diseases tick for a fuckload more than any other spec, and that does add up

What would you guys think about a 20/51/0 build? frost has some pretty ungodly good talents to choose from so there would be alot of variation, but what would be the ideal spec for arena?

TBH I don't think I'll need a slow in any setup that a DK would work well in. Mages and warriors synergize so well with us that they can do all of the snaring. Ret paladins did just fine in double melee 3s and triple melee 5s teams and they have zero snares.

Why are Unholy builds going into Rage of Rivendare instead of going further down Blood for Veteran of the Third War and Abomination's Might?
