    DPS in trouble

    I'm a DK specked for DPS. Problem that I have is finding out just how much DPS I actualy do 'cause most people tell me for 10 or 25 man ICC or TOC and TOGC I need to do at least 4500 DPS. Any help anyone can give me would be extreamly helpful. http://www.wowarmory.com/character-s...n=Carcaridondk Also, if anyone can send me a Tank spec for my offspec, I'd apreciate it 'cause I'd like to be able to tank also. TY

    Unholy is the dominant spec for both single and aoe dps. I see you have 20 hit enchant and a 20 hit gem, there is no need for either of those because all you need is 263 (8 %). Change your haste and crit gems for 10 str / 10 crit gems instead (assuming the socket bonus is 4 str and above and is a red / yellow socket) since attack power scales with ALL of our abilities. As for your meta gem go with the 21 crit / 3 % crit damage for unholy. Get all of your gear enchanted and your dps will go up. I am going to give you a link to my website about dks (just started on it, more posts will be coming), http://ghoulslair.blogspot.com/
    good luck

    K. But is my current dps talent spec good enough? Another DK gave it to me 'cause its easy to use and the CD's are fairly short on it.

    To answer your actual inquiry, you can find your damage, damage per second(dps) and other interesting facts using an addon called "Recount."

    You can get said addon from curse.com and it is the addon utilized by the majority to garner this information.

    Past that, check some blood dps guides to know how to enchant/gem. You don't have to be unholy to be competitive dps.

    Your DPS spec is bad. If you want to do blood, 51/0/20 is the way to go. Krenian has a DK DPS thread in the DPS forums you should be following.

    Gems: Haste is one of the least sought stats for a DK. Never gem it. Your meta should be the +21 agi/3% crit damage or +21 crit/3% crit damage (the former has the advantage of an easier gem requirement). Strength should go in your prismatic slots.

    Sigil: Probably too late now, but that one is a waste of Emblems of Frost until you've bought everything else you might want with them. Virulence is about as good and only requires the investment of Triumph badges.

    Glyphs: Glyph of the Ghoul is not good for blood (mostly because you shouldn't have the permanent version). You should have Glyph of Death Strike, Glyph of Dancing Rune Weapon, and Glyph of Disease/Glyph of Dark Death.

    Hit: Too much. Mark of Supremacy is only good if it helps you get to about 263 hit. Over that, the hit is mostly wasted itemization.

    Gems/Enchants:

    Helm: Toss that Hit Gem, get Str/Crit. Get rid of that Metagem, that is horrible, +21 crit/3% crit damage is the best.
    Shoulders: Toss that Haste Gem, get Str/Crit.
    Chest: Personally I would have gem Stam/Str and Str. Enchant that with +10 to stats.
    Bracers: Get those enchanted with Attack Power.
    Gloves: Toss out those gems. Gem Str/Crit and Str, so toss out those gems. Your BS Socket should always be a Str gem.
    Legs: Toss out those gems. Gem Str/Crit and Str. Get the Attack Power/Crit Leg Armor Kit.
    Boots: Toss out that gem. Gem Str/Crit. Enchant those with Attack Power.
    Weapon: Toss out that gem. Gem Str/Crit.


    Gear:
    Get rid of that cloak, it is a tank cloak. Get http://www.wowhead.com/?item=43566 or http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40721 or http://www.wowhead.com/?item=49842 (best option) or http://www.wowhead.com/?item=49792 for cloaks that can be gotten outside of Raids.

    Sigils: The Relics from Frost Emblems for DKs absolutely suck compared to the Triumph ones.

    Boots: Get http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45559 (best if you are willing to shell out the mats, due to the sockets) or http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50305
