maybe mage dk
I played mage dk for fun to 2.4k pre 6.1. It works, but it has quite some weaknesses and vs decent players in some comps you are struggling quite a bit. Now with 6.1 it became a bit stronger due to the magebuffs, and maybe you could run it with a priest (haven't tested how good priest might be, will do this weekend)
I'd say it's good if you have some friends to play it just for fun and stuff up to like 2.5k maybe even 2.6-7k but there is a limit to what you can do as mage/dk and stuff like godcomp or any train-mage-24/7-never-let-him-cast shut your setups down a lot and are extremely hard if they know what they're doing.




Monk will very likely still be the best healer for TSG, Smokebomb and on US i think these are the best comps to play as dk

In Topic: Glyph of Outbreak, possibilities for Frost DKs?

20 February 2015 - 01:29 PM

I think this could work pretty decent. As already mentioned the combination of plague leech and breath is worth it that way. 30 RP is not too expensive so thats fine.

The downsides are a glyph slot less. So we're giving up Presences or Sim. Now lets think about comps, where you'd play that glyph: stuff that roots you. (I don't count being slowed 24/7 here, because in 3s that never really is a problem, unlike in 2s)

So who is rooting us: Druids, Mages, Hunters (Priest and Shaman don't really count in my opinion)

Sim glyph: Against Druids and Mages i'd NEVER give up Sim glyph, against hunter teams... well depending on the comp you're facing it's possible.
Presences glyph: Well with 6.1 coming up, i'd never play without that against mages. Against druids and hunters i guess it depends on the comp ur facing and the comp ur playing.

So TL:DR: there is a spot for this glyph but it really depends on both sides (comp playing + comp facing)
I'm never gonna use it though, because I just really like to play with blood tap :P

What comps would you consider tier 1 DK comps at this point then? Seems like everyone is playing TSG or Shadowcleave, but maybe I'm missing something. Hard to tell what top ranked DKs are actually playing after blizzard did away with teams. Maybe I'm missing something (PHD, Unholyplay, Zombie Chicken, Vanguards, etc).

When I watch streams or play myself I rarely face DKs, but when I do they play TSG or Smokebombcleave pretty much everytime. So those are certainly top. I haven't seen many Shadowcleaves but I think it can work. My experience with Vanguards: I don't like it that much. PHD can work but is countered by every Ret-Team I'd say. Everything else doesn't seem to be viable in high ratings. If you wanna have some fun run Libertycleave (DK/Mage) in the lower ratings (should work at least to 2.4k). It's like DK/Rogue but people just have no clue what to do against it (at least from what I experienced)
This whole opinion is built from EU PoV, US might differ but not that much I'd say.

In Topic: Unholy for TSG? (Mes stream)

Unholy was never that bad to begin with. Sure on US I think pretty much nobody plays UH but on EU there are some UH DKs.
TSG is pretty good with Unholy/Arms. You can do insane splitpressure compared to Frost/Fury, where you sit 1 target all game. Also I think unholy has way more depth and possibilities (pet, lichborne-selfheal, purges, ...)

All Unholy Questions should be covered in the DK guide from Shendelz.
