About Unholy Death Knight’s current state
Unholy is currently is not in the best spot in raiding and very few people play it as Frost is quite simply the better spec at the moment.
Unholy in dungeons is extremely strong but it still has a few issues. In the MDI you can do massive pulls that Unholy excels at, but on live people can’t do the pulls necessary for Unholy to be good and players don’t have the amount of practice required to execute these pulls on keys that are 20+ so Unholy does not see much play in high keys. It is still quite good, just not as good as it seems in MDI.
