PvP Unholy Death Knight Gems, Enchants & Consumables

wotlk pvp unholy death knight gems, enchants & consumables


This is the strongest Meta gem that you can acquire. However, if you would like an alternative, you can use Chaotic Skyflare Diamond.

For Red gems, you will want to stack ones with Strength, like Bold Scarlet Ruby in the early phases of the expansion, with a mix between Bold Scarlet Ruby and Resplendent Monarch Topaz in the middle phases. In the later phases of the expansion, you will likely want to get Resplendent Ametrine and Bold Cardinal Ruby.

You should use Mystic Autumn’s Glow in the early phases of the game to maximize your Resilience, with Mystic King’s Amber for the later phases.

As an Unholy Death Knight, you are a hybrid class with almost half of your abilities being tagged as spells. In order to be efficient in PvP combat, you will require Spell Penetration to make sure that your enemies don’t just resist your abilities. Stormy Sky Sapphire and Stormy Majestic Zircon are simply the best choices when it comes to reaching your Spell Penetration soft cap.

Alternatively, you can make use of Flexweave Underlay, if you have Engineering.

This is the best enchantment for this slot.

Alternatively, if you do not have enough gold to purchase the materials needed for it, you can opt-in for Enchant Chest – Super Stats.

There are no better options for your bracer’s enchantment.

Hand-Mounted Pyro Rocket is the best possible option for the Unholy Death Knight. It requires Engineering (400).

The only possible viable choice for your waist.

This is the best enchantment for your legs. However, if you prefer to have a more offensive playstyle, you will want to choose Icescale Leg Armor.

Nitro Boosts can be considered one of the strongest escape or chase tools in the game, with the requirement of Engineering (400). Alternatively, you can opt-in for Enchant Boots – Tuskarr’s Vitality.

If you chose Enchanting as one of your professions, you can benefit from its unique trait, allowing you to enchant your rings.

Death Knights have access to a special skill, Runeforging, which allows them to apply Death-Knight-exclusive enchants to their weapons.

Our Runeforge of choice will be the Rune of the Fallen Crusader, which occasionally increases our total strength by 15% for 15 seconds. No other enchant will come close to it.


The best flask you can acquire for an Unholy Death Knight is the Flask of Endless Rage. You can’t use flasks in arenas, however, you can freely use them in Battlegrounds and Duels! You can also choose to use Flask of the North in case you have Alchemy (400).

Fish Feast will be the standard food for battlegrounds, offering the best possible stats. However, if you do not find yourself in a battleground, or the group itself does not have any Fish Feast available, you can use Dragonfin Filet for increased strength!

The best possible choice for an Unholy Death Knight for potions in PvP is Noth’s Special Brew. However, you can’t use potions in arenas, so it’s a better option for duels and battlegrounds.

With Noth’s Special Brew you can pop your Gargoyle early in the fight, resulting in a fast and massive burst.

Unfortunately, scrolls like Scroll of Agility VIII / Scroll of Strength VIII do not stack with Horn of Winter. Instead, we can use scrolls like Scroll of Stamina VIII and Scroll of Protection VIII.

Noth’s Special Brew as a consumeable should be removed, since you realistically can only get up to 20 of them and only during a certain phase of the Death Knight quest chain, after which they become unobtainable.

You would keep more eyes on your website if you listed an alternative to some of the enchants, other than just listing the Engineering enchant and just saying “it is the best”.

It’s Wrath, Engineering is effectively mandatory for anyone that wants to perform.

Since you cannot use Nitro boost in arena i would argue it is the worse option for boot enhcant. “Anyone that wants to perform” is not just playing battlegrounds.
