Unholy Tank spec Discussion
Hope that the "discussion" doesnt insinuate im trying to make a long official drawn out thread and all, rather I would like to offer my ideas and ask some questions on some proposed builds.
First off, I love this toon. Its loads of fun, the mobs run fleeing in terror if they dont die in 3 hits. Im Unholy. I like the sound of having an Unholy Death Tank, it makes me happy :) So thats out of the way.
My conundrum is finding a good tank spec for Unholy. Unholy appears to be the best AoE tanking spec, while also offering good tools for tanking high spell damage bosses and high mitigation bosses due to having a greater majority of their dps come from spell damage. That said, here are my ideas and a brief descriptor of why I went what:
My favorite so far. I use Anticipation as a filler for moving down the tree and end up filling it up anways. Being that this builds provides great AoE buffs I'm sure to askew CC and just tank whatever all is in front of me, so why not get as much avoidance as possible? Blood Caked Blade is great and all, but I dont imagine myself relying on my auto attacks as much with an Unholy build, the talent is filled up in case I mess up a rotation and have to wait for runes to come back up. Not a great reason but im stickin with it :)
I forego filling Desecration and instead fill up Dark Conviction, which brings me to my second build:
with the points swapped around. EDIT TO ADD: This build has slightly better AoE threat and damage, and plays to the strength of the spec well because Plague Strike has a prominent place in my rotation (as it does in all, but....)
This is my problem. I know not which is preferrable, and seek any thoughts on the subject. Could I hybridize and put 3 in DC and 4 in Desecration?
In addition, are there any viable builds that include Necrosis? Its a talent I like very much.
