    so unholy is better than frost in 3s

    if you are stuck with t1 unholy is better.

    1% unholy are over 2.2k rating and global is 1.3% so its pretty good

    2.4% frost are over 2.2k rating and global is 4.6% so its bad


    this post is just to make an idea because stuck with t1 as frost is not even fun

    Your numbers say that unholy basically only exists above 2200, which means they all have t2 weapons. Why would you argue that it's better than frost with t1? And the more obvious: more people play frost at both 2200+ and lower ratings--wouldn't this suggest that frost is just a stronger spec than unholy across the board?

    All that data really shows is that among low-rated DKs frost is a nearly universal standard, and that unholy requires a skilled player to be successful but is still inferior.

    This is just my opinion but imo Unholy has always been better spec for Arenas. People tend to play frost more just because its easier to play and provides more burst. A lot of players want to have few buttons and see big numbers, then you see all those frost DKs who are playing way too much offensively (glass cannon) and dying all the time when trained. In environment where burst is very high frost may be very good with another bursty specs for a fast kills but imo unholy has higher skill cap and provide more complex way to play a DK.

    Just my impressions from what I have seen so far over those years.

    Dks are currently a gimmick for arena comps and can easily be replaced with other classes. Squishy class is squishy.

    Same can be said about quite a few classes so wipe your tears bro. You're not alone.

    OT: Unholy isn't any worse then frost and imo it's better spec when properly played, but... frost is extremly simple and have no retarded mechanics attached to it so more ppls are playing frost. Unholy for no reason still have cost on pet stun, Garg still gets fucked hard by pillar humping, you still need shitload of macroses to make your pet efficient. Not many want to bother with unholy becouse frost provides comparable result and require much less dedication.

    Now that the on-use PVP trinkets are being nerfed (and this hits burstier classes more), I expect more DKs will be trying out Unholy.
