In this section of the guide, we will help you choose the best equipment or alternatives that you can utilize for each of the different phases of the expansion. Having the Pre-raid tab contain items that you will want to acquire before you start any serious raiding!

This combination of rings will be your best option.

As an alternative, you can choose to swap Strong-Handed Ring with Ruthlessness.

This combination of trinkets will be your best option.

Alternative (Armor Penetration): Grim Toll & Darkmoon Card: Greatness

Alternative: Armageddon

Armageddon is a small bit weaker than Betrayer of Humanity, particularly if you’re an Orc. However, the two are close enough that you can safely use Armageddon for a while, specially if Betrayer of Humanity is being stubborn and refuses to drop.

This will be your best option for this slot.

There are two options for this slot. You can either choose the Tier set item, or you can choose Shoulderpads of the Intruder. Both are viable options, however, you will be sacrificing the 4-set item bonus if you choose to do so.

Those will be the best options for the ring slots.

There are several choices that you can make in regard to the best combination of trinkets.

Comet’s Trail is the best possible choice for an Unholy Death Knight in the second phase. However, the second trinket is entirely up to you. You can choose to pick Darkmoon Card: Greatness, which will be a solid choice until the third phase of the expansion, or you can use Dark Matter which is also a very potent pick.

This will be the best option for this slot.

For the standard Two-Handed build, this weapon will be by far the best choice you can make for the second phase.

Those will be the best weapons for Dual-Wield.

As far as the Dual-Wield build goes, those will be the best options available. However, there are other plenty of good choices as alternatives such as Serilas, Blood Blade of Invar One-Arm

This will be the best option for this slot.

Darkmooncard + Utgarde Pinnacle trinket from last boss that just slipped my mind should be BiS for the gargoyle snapshot

P2, remorse and stonerender are BiS 1hs..
UH if dual wielding relies on fast 1hs and Haste is one of best stats
Caress of insanty is BiS Frost dk weapons in P2

Not gonna mention any other Phases cause you got them all wrong too, I’d highly recommend checking out wowhead for BiS phases. Much more accurate.

Bro did U know that uh dk not= fury warrior?! Like wtf most of the dmg we do R magic dmg not phisical, why arp trinket? DMC:greatness is BIS till toc. I know we also benefit from arp (auto atack, bloodcake strike etc) but its not so good as ppl think. We will have a lot of gear in icc with arp its super nice and everything but we dont need 1400 arp on uh dk we dont need to gem on it. What next? You goin to say that ret paladin or enha shaman need to gem on arp? Im so pissed bro. Btw guys DMC and fury from OS r BIS trinkets

I can’t wait to read YOUR DK guide. Please send me the link. I think your anger probably inspired a truly wonderful article!

He is right btw, and it doesn’t need to be a “you do better then!” This is peer review and some of information is straight up WRONG; Your stat prio is Hit>Str>Haste>Crit>Exp

Most of these stats will come on their own. You dont want ARP since neither your ghoul or you diseases, Coil, DnD is phys dmg, and doesn’t benefit.
This also applies for Expertise; But its still rather good to get, especially if you run UDK dualwield.
Just because a guy writes a guide, he is not right. And to me this guide shows that the one writing it, has not played DK properly or hasn’t done research.
I’d gladly take any questions if thats the case.

I understand that sentiment, and it is correct, but you can’t set a guide up for an entire expansion, unless it’s as simple as warlock/mage in TBCC.
Since dk can change between every phase.

And you should advice it imo, not out of it being wrong.
Pretty sure you would never trade str, For arp
For example morb/dw is stronger with str. And your guide should cater to that or explain that atleast.
But none the less a good job!

2H Unholy outperform the DW Unholy in every Raidsituation, on top classic talents are on patch 3.3.5, in that patch u never play DW Unholy. The DW Unholy was okish back on “vanilla”wotlk in P1 cuz of other talent-tuning.
