In Topic: Necrotic Strike gone in WoD

Yesterday, 08:32 PM

everyone raves about damage, and I've said this before and I'll say it again. Burst damage is king. Sustain damage without CC, or mortal strike is easily healed though by all classes. This is exactly why you HAVE to tunnel shaman healers, as shadowcleave. You dont have mortal strike to back up your damage, and you only have fear to keep them from healing, which Shamen are basically immune to. This is why its impossible to win against monk healers, and this is exactly why Dk "somuchdamageomg" wont matter in WoD. The CC is toned down, Dk class has no burst (gargoyle is shit), you HAVE to play with a mortal strike, and you dont even have necrotic strike to back up your damage. The second anyone gets out of CC (dks dont have any) they'll heal their entire team up though your super [not] overpowered damage with a cast or two at max. Probably instant casts.

TLDR: WoD Unholy at level 100 feels exactly like taking necrotic strike off your bar, and trying to do good without it at 90 on live.

I'm already done with WoD beta. Dk doesnt even feel fun anymore

In Topic: DKs can now use Honorbuddy to its potential

Mind Freeze doesn't have a 20 yard range on beta. Its probably not going in. Also, we cant kill priests anymore. We cant really kill any healers. We cant really kill anything without Necrotic Strike, so things are going exactly as I thought they would go.

Edit: Though to be fair the Dk 4 set piece isnt working, so maybe the dots will be a little more scary when thats around. No snapshotting is turning out to be aids, as expected, and is in favor of all those wonderful Dks out there who use their gargolye macro to dismount on live.

As the topic says, is it even worth playing shadowcleave when you can play PHD as a dk?

Its pretty frustrating. Played it to just under 2700 (US) when the average item level was around 548 (so around early-mid season), some of the more high end teams being 550. Since then its been pretty downhill. You queue into monks, you lose. You queue into Sham KFC, you lose (unless they're really bad). You queue into double melee (especially TSG), you lose. Beast Cleave is pretty obnoxious as well.

Multistrike is supposed to be unholys priority stat according to blizzard, and with all the rot damage, if multistrike gives dots a chance to double tick.. it makes sense

Thats what I thought, but to be honest the versatility stat is just flat out stronger overall. A chance to have a extra tick or two at 20-30% damage, vs pvp power and pvp resilience rolled into one stat. Yes people still tunnel dks into the ground. With enough versatility you're pretty much unkillable right now. Oh god dk vs dk is a tough one. Was doing 2s, I killed the other dk's healer fairly quickly with my heart of the wild druid pumping out 50k wraths. It took another 2.5 minutes (till my next gargolye) to kill the Dk. Noodle strike hitting for 2.5 physical on plate...
