Welcome to the Unholy Death Knight DPS guide for patch 8.3, written by Miniaug. I have raided in top guilds such as Midwinter, ScrubBusters, and Limit since Hellfire Citadel. In Legion I mainly played Death Knight and since then have been multiclassing.
Quick thank you to Cistara and Tzo from the Acherus Discord for helping out with the 8.3 update for this guide!
About Unholy Death knight
Unholy Death Knight in Battle for Azeroth has so far been pretty underwhelming in raids but are looking to make a very strong comeback in Ny’alotha. Dungeons have been a different story however. With extremely strong synergies between certain talents, Unholy has remained strong throughout the expansion in dungeons, especially in the MDI competition.
What has changed
- Corruption has been added and Titanforging was removed. Corruption introduces all new positive and negative effects that you now need to watch out for while gearing.
- Breath of the Dying, Spark of Inspiration, and The Formless Void are new essences that have been added to 8.3 and will likely shake up the essence meta that we currently have.
- Purification Protocol, The Unbound Force, Vision of Perfection, and Worldvein Resonance have all been buffed.
- A third minor essence slot that has been added which opens new possibilities and combinations with the essences added in 8.3.
