Of late I have been having a hard time deciding on which of these 2 talents I should stick to for PVE and PVE for both Frost and Unholy.
I am trying to stay away from Blood Tap cause I usually have a hard time micro managing my runes, especially when I have so much else going on.
If I remember correctly the last time I played my Death Knight, during WTLK and early Cata, Runic Empowerment basically had a 45% chance of generating a randomly depleted rune to a "DEATH RUNE" when you used Frost Strike. However, they have changed it a bit and it only generates a randomly depleted rune. I could be wrong on this but this is how I remember the talent. If this is the case then I don't think its as powerful now as it was then.
However, Runic Corruption increases your rune generation by 100% for 2.5+ secs which works wonderfully in a PVE setting. I like the passive nature of it. However, I just feel the up time is really low. 2.5+ seconds? That is considerably low if you are in Frost Presence playing as Frost. Unholy Presence as Unholy has it a bit easier since they already get a passive buff to rune generation.
Now I have not played much with my Death Knight, just been getting into the class recently and I plan on making it my main. So would like to know the pros and cons and which talent stands out?
