Welcome to the Unholy Death Knight guide. My name is Kwepp, and I am a Death Knight player for Method. In this guide, I will be walking you through everything you need to know about the Unholy Death Knight and how you should approach playing the spec in patch 9.2, Eternity’s End.
If you have any more questions about Unholy Death Knight or Death Knight’s in general, then feel free to find me in the Acherus Discord, where I will happily answer any questions! I hope you enjoy reading my guide.
