[PVE] Death Knight - Unholy DPS Spec & Guide [Not Hit Capped] (For 3.3.5)

Death Knight

This spec / talent build is for level 80 Death Knights and the 3.3.5(a) version of World of Warcraft

Unholy is one of the most respected (and feared) dps class-specs in end-game raids, due to their tremendous amounts of damage with all their multiple target/AoE (Area of Effect) abilities, but especially their diseases (Unholy DK dps is also abnormally high on Molten-WoW due to being bugged). Some even go as far as to claim them to be the single strongest class-spec in AoE dps (and I can't argue with them). However, just as if it weren't enough already, they have great single target dps as well. And to top it all, they also even have great raid buffs!

What are you waiting for?

Unholy DPS Talent Build / Spec (3.3.5)
[Not Hit Capped]

The major Glyphs to be used with this spec are: 

Glyph of Icy Touch : Your Frost Fever disease deals 20% additional damage.
Glyph of Disease : Your Pestilence ability now refreshes disease durations and secondary effects of diseases on your primary target back to their maximum duration.
Glyph of Dark Death : Increases the damage or healing done by Death Coil by 15%. 

Minor Glyphs:
Glyph of Pestilence : Increases the radius of your Pestilence effect by 5 yards.
Glyph of Blood Tap : Your Blood Tap no longer causes damage to you.
Glyph of Raise Dead : Your Raise Dead spell no longer requires a reagent.

Additionally you can switch any of the major mods for one of the following:

Single Target:
Glyph of the Ghoul : Your Ghoul receives an additional 40% of your Strength and 40% of your Stamina.

Multiple Target / AoE:
Glyph of Death and Decay : Damage of your Death and Decay spell increased by 20%.

Additional information:

The "hit cap" for Unholy Death Knight tanks is 263 hit rating, or about 12,5%.You will gain hit cap from both gear and buffs (and debuffs on your target), but also talents, as in the talent build above.
    If you cannot get to that minimal 263 physical special and auto-attack hit cap, you will need to use this talent build in order to get as close to the hit cap as possible.

This spec uses some precious talent points in +hit talents, because hit rating is extremely important for any dps, and thus you should aim for the hit cap as soon as possible.
    Because of the need for +hit talents, this spec is meant for newbier players, thus it is made with mostly 5-man dungeons in mind.

You should always try to make your specs reflect your gaming style and preference, though, even when you follow specs and guides*.
