Idea's for new MoP PvP
Return to board index
Was wondering if anyone had anything constructive to throw out for Dk Arena PvP.
Currently i am a Frost Dk running with a BM partner in Arena's sitting at about 1690 rating this week, and i was just wondering if anyone had any numbers to give me about Unholy. I've been searching around online and no one seems to have thrown anything up yet in terms of Pro's and Con's of both specs and in what situations each really shines in. Mostly just because i feel like frost is really starting to loose its power as we are climbing further and further up, mostly because i am starting to realize the slow trend of melting under certain combos. Was also looking for a few tips in terms of how to possibly ease the killing of Resto Druid and Resto Shammies, currently having alot of trouble with them.
Any help would be appreciated, also im gonna throw my armory link up, let me know if i could possibly do better stat wise. Thanks guys!
While I do not feel like frost has at all deteriorated, here's a short list of pro's and con's of the two specs in your situation(Playing a double deeps comp with no hybrid).
-Great burst, if both of you are not CCed you will melt one of them.
-Great AoE, can kill off enemy pets with HB spams while putting some heavy pressure out.
-Able to face boom/ele shams on Blade's Edge with no fear of knockbacks early on.
-Some of the highest damage output in the game, though this generally shines better in a BG versus and Arena.
-Survivability is much lower.
-Burst is shut down if they polymorph/fear/incapacitate during Pilllar of Frost.
-Great burst, powerful cooldowns which are not shut down by a single CC on the DK.
-High survivability is you use Lichborne healing at a good time.
-Lichborne healing can be used to break out of a locks fear chain(Which will be used on you as your hunter will be immune anyways) AND to heal the damage taken while he is fearing you.
-Ghoul stun adds another great CC to the team, especially if saved until morph.
-With 100% disease spread damage returned to us, a well timed Pestilence can allow for faster switches, and while a double dps team of this setup will not get many, catching their healer out of position just once may be all you need.
-Can escape easier(Death's Advance verus Chilblains)
-Does have a small ramp up time before morphing ghoul.
-Due to both of you being pet classes, a smart melee with heavy cleaving can kill off pets(Arms warriors) and hurt our output significantly.
While Lichborne is used by both specs, I only refer to it under Unholy since it is amped by the mastery and spec, making the heals much more potent.
I almost always find Unholy to be the superior spec for arenas, regardless of running healer/DK or double dps, and though there are a few exceptions I do not feel hunter/DK is one of those.
As for the armory link, I'd say go with Str/PvP power gems instead of pure strength gems. The strength should only be there for the set bonuses, PvP power is much more powerful.
