Introduction

Hello, welcome to the Unholy Death Knight guide. My name is Kwepp, I am a Death Knight player for Method, and I am known for playing the class in my previous guild, Halcyon. I played Death Knight on and off since Cataclysm, but decided to fully commit to the class during Nyalotha in Battle for Azeroth.

I am very focused on performance and getting the most out of my class as possible, playing both Frost and Unholy to a high level. Today I will be guiding you through the Unholy Death Knight and how you should approach playing the spec.

I am happy to help people by giving them advice & tips on how to be a better Death Knight, as well as a better player. If you want to ask any questions, please contact me on Discord or visit my stream sometime where I answer any questions I get about the class.

What has changed

9.1.5 Unholy Death Knight Changes

Bursting Sores is no longer target capped and now deals reduced damage beyond 8 targets.

Sacrificial Pact is no longer target capped and now deals reduced damage beyond 5 targets.

Reanimated Shambler legendary effect is no longer target capped, applying a Festering Wound to all enemies and now deals reduced damage beyond 5 targets.

Abomination Limb is no longer target capped and now deals reduced damage beyond 5 targets.

Shackle the Unworthy has been nerfed by 10% but now has a 100% chance to spread to a nearby target, after using an ability with a Rune cost against a target debuffed with Shackle the Unworthy. This potentially makes Shackle the Unworthy good for AOE situations if you can get the full duration of damage on each target.

Withering Ground - This Night Fae Conduit has been buffed by 50%

Impenetrable Gloom - This Venthyr Conduit has received a 50% buff to its damage effect. This could be good for large AOE packs.
