I've been hearing a lot lately that unholy/frost dks generally have quite low survivability. Especially in arena.
I'm planning on rerolling from druid to either DK/Hunter (no this is not a thread revolving around me asking what class to roll, just want some clarification). But I'm not completely sure whether the DK playstyle is mine.
Do DKs get globalled? Like versus mage/rogue or any other melee cleave? Or should I simply go frost for 2s? (I enjoy Unholy more than frost, but I don't hate frost completely)
How are DKs in BGs? The times I fought DKs on my feral I got so incredibly frustrated seeing as how one of the DKs literally SPAM rooted me, and 20k howling blasts into my face. And everytime I went face to face.. I basically got my face melted.
Also how are DKs in 2s/3s? I'm including 2s with this seeing as that's the bracket I cap my CP in. Should I go frost if I want to cleave stuff with let's say... a warrior? And Unholy if I won't to play with a healer? (reckoning this is even viable)
Another thing; are DKs the anti caster class? I know in wotlk they were. Also, how are they against melee?
Now about duels (lolduels), are there any classes I CAN beat IF I manage to play it right? Or are DKs basically doggyshitty without a partner?
I also know frost dk is the more glass cannony spec, while unholy "supposedly" has better survivability. I'm wondering WHY Unholy supposedly has better survivability. Is this because you can kite and still do some decent damage?
Reason I'm asking these questions are of course because I'm wishing to reroll, and I want to know if I get globalled a lot as DK, else I will most likely go hunter simply because of deterrence xD. I enjoyed my DK end cataclysm in PvE, but didn't have any PVP gear to see how they were really like in PvP.
One last thing.. are there ANY fancy things I can pull off as DK? I know as hunter you can do fancy stuff with explosive shot, deterrence and stuff. But as DK the only thing I can see being fancy is triple gripping stuff and stealing stuff with dark simulacrum. Is Dark Simulacrum actually able to steal spells like Thunderstorm/Typhoon? ;>
