DK Spec

Unread post by Beyrz » Thu Aug 28, 2008 5:06 pm

15k gold, 6 full banks worth of armor, consumerables, and profession mats. All thats left is choosing a spec for lvl'ing my DK reroll.

Ok so ive done some research but i want to hear the opinions of people who might have had some experience on the beta. Which is best for leveling , Blood or Unholy. Both seem to have some great benefits, Blood seems to cut downtime to a minimum while grinding but Unholy has alot of great things too. I hate leveling and want to make my DK hit 80 as fast as i can so any recommendations? And what would your tree look like?

I've been leveling as Blood atm and I've been happy with it. It's fun to play and as you mentioned it doesn't have a lot of down time. I'm at 64 right now and working on the end of the Zangarmarsh quests, so that's how long I've been playing as the spec. Ara is at 80 now and he started out as blood, went to frost when it was made OP and then went unholy and he said it's not a bad spec but it "feels weird" to play.

Here's the spec I'm using now:

I've just started going down the unholy tree to get some extra hit and stuff.

I've tried Blood and Frost but i'm just getting ready to ding 62.

Blood has next to no downtime. You are constantly healing yourself with the dmg you do etc.

Frost has alot more nuking ability etc. I have been loving Icy Touch + Howling Blast etc.

I haven't had a chance to try out Unholy yet to see how it is.

I used to know a guy named Morraine, but he doesn't play WoW anymore. Any chance you know that guy?
