    Death Knight PvP stat priority?

    I was wondering if anyone knew the stat priority for (Unholy) Death Knights in PvP, similar to the stat priorities on Elitist Jerks, or where to find such information. Google/forum searches haven't helped, sadly.

    Hit to 5% > Strength > Haste > Mastery > Crit > Expertise.

    I believe.

    Cheers. Any idea where Resillience fits into that, though?

    Resilience is your friend nonetheles. If you want to run with some pve pieces feel free to do that, but remember that resilience prolly will benefit you more since you are in melee range with the enemy and can take alot of dmg just by that.
    I'd say go for all resi parts, mb a pve trinket if you feel for it and reforge to haste (I dont know whats on the set- or offpart pieces)

    In the dark. Watching. Waiting
    For resi it depends on your comp. If you get focused most of the time. Get more resi to help your healer. If not drop it for higher DPS.
    I've walked the realms of the dead. I have seen the infinite dark. Nothing you say. Or do. Could possibly frighten me.
    We are not monsters! We are not the mindless wretches of a ghoul army! NO! We are a force even more terrifying! We are the chill in a coward's spine! We are the instruments of an unyielding ire! WE ARE THE FORSAKEN!

    This is most accurate.

    Spell Penetration ~190 minimum to bypass enemy buffs.

    Resilience is notably better than Strength at the moment.

    5% hit > 195 spell pen > strength > resi > haste > crit > mastery > expertise.

    If you have voice of the deeps (tentacle weapon) the stat prio changes slightly, 5% hit > 195 spell pen > haste > mastery > crit > expertise.


    Link to my DK to show I'm a reliable source and stuff

    You don't need expertise in PVP or PVE as UH DK
