Remember this is assuming you are able to get the statless weapons, obviously if you just get the stat weapons you will have slightly higher haste than I spoke of.
Red set looks badass. Purple and Green is pretty cool looking for Unholy DK's, but the blue set's sorta meh, even as a Frost DK.
Here is something I came up in 5 mins, based on preliminary SimC weights for T13 BiS. It has expertise cap, more hit than I can get rid of, I only put (fierce gems) in yellow sockets and (etched) in blue where applicable. Nothing else is gemmed since it will be Bold and won't affect haste. I also enchanted the boots as it is the only Haste enchant we'll use.
Again, please notice that I used extremely greedy reforge of reforging to Haste on every item that didn't have Haste and making sure I get the Expertise cap and hit cap. The reforge is awful, as it is over hit cap by a good 300 points or so. I believe one item should be changed to get rid of some hit :
As you can see it uses trinkets and weapons with 0 secondary stats and yet it has more Haste than T12 BiS.
Nice try though.
edit: Using SimC atm is somewhat unreliable as it has been giving some weird numbers for us in the ptr so just letting you know.

Nvm. I used a helm that doesn't exist again. Damn wowhead!
I'm getting about 2350 Haste with "real" items, which is about 150 Haste less than T12 Frost BiS.

My DK is looking forward to getting the new gear. Looks great!
Transmogrification and the "Hide Helm" option say hi.
Would any1 know the names and the boss of the matching offpieces for the LFR set drop? Thanks!
boots are the vp ones and maybe the boots off zon'ozz, belt is either vp or hagara's
Doesn't the 4 piece set bonus for Frost/Unholy seem a bit underpowered when compared to other class'?
Just seems that way for me. Only a quarter (or 40%) of the time you get Runic Empowerment (and Corruption - respectively) and that is only 45 of the time you use Frost Strike/Death Coil.
