PvE Unholy Death Knight Talents, Builds & Glyphs

With the arrival of Cataclysm, the talent system received a massive overhaul, changing from the 71 talent points system to a more compact 41 points system. As such, many of the old talents were either completely removed or changed, resulting in fewer possible build variations. One key aspect of the new system is that you must use at least 31 points in your main specialization to use the remaining 10 points in a secondary specialization.

Unholy Death Knights have one standard Talent Build that works in most environments, whether we talk about Raids or Dungeons. The build has close to no flexibility with only two talents being interchangeable, Runic Power Mastery and Magic Suppression. The build offers the best possible damage output while also generating a slow effect through Desecration.
