DeathKnight Skill Guide - (Updated 27-3-2019)

Recommended Posts

 

Sprite-0002.jpgSprite-0003.jpgSprite-0004.jpg BASIC SKILLS BUILDS Sprite-0005.jpgSprite-0001.jpg

 

PvP build

Sprite-0001.jpg Dark Shield  5/5

- Dark Shield give the chance to ignore enemy damage with accordance to your armor, the more armor you have the more damage the skill will ignore

- which will give a increase chance of survival, as of the last time this skill got an update the chance of working is 80%, giving a huge 

durability and allowing you to withstand great amount of damage.

 

Sprite-0002.jpg Thorn of Death   5/5

- Leveling Thorn of Death will allow you to increase your output damage and let you kill enemys faster, its a given that you need to have a damage skill with some levels for all classes

 

Sprite-0003.jpg Exhalation of Darkness  3/5

- which will give you extra magical damage, as much as you have magical damage the skill damage will increase

 

- NOTE : you could switch the leveling of Exhalation of Darkness and Thorn of Death

for more Magical damage as Thorn of Death deal Physical damage

 

as for Provocation Sprite-0004.jpg  and Threads of Darkness Sprite-0005.jpgkeep them at 1/5

- use Provocation to make enemy lose target in case you want to run and use Threads of Darkness to pull running enemy's toward you

- you could give Threads of Darkness some levels as it give extra damage to all following attacks but then you need to lose some levels in other skills,

There is also the possibility of leveling Threads of Darkness to 3/5 or even 5/5 as the skill will increase all other skill damage toward the effected target

 

PvE build

 

Sprite-0001.jpg Dark Shield 5/5

- Dark Shield give the chance to ignore enemy damage with accordance to your armor, the more armor you have the more damage the skill will ignore

- which will give a increase chance of survival, as of the last time this skill got an update the chance of working is 80%, giving a huge 

durability and allowing you to withstand great amount of damage.

Sprite-0002.jpg Thorn of Death  5/5

- You need this skill to for outputting damage to enemy's and bosses

Sprite-0004.jpg Provocation  3/5

- as of latest updates support classes heal Provoke the monsters to attack them so you need something to attract the monsters attention away from the healers

- also bosses attack the higher damage outputted to them, so most of the time bosses will attack damagers so you need something to attract the boss attention to you

- try spamming this skill it have low energy cost and cooldown.

as you can see Dark ShieldSprite-0001.jpg is leveled max in any case, this skill considered the heart and soul of DeathKnight, and is the most important Basic skill dk have

 

- For knights who want to pass to the second map

level Dark Shield it will give you durability to kill 5-6k mini bosses without help

and survive if you get lot of Monsters around you, then level Thorn of Death for some damage

 

 

Sprite-0008.jpgSprite-0001.jpgSprite-0002.jpgbb.png EXPERT SKILLS BUILDS Sprite-0005.jpgSprite-0003.jpgSprite-0008.jpgSprite-0007.jpg

There is lot of build you can go with expert skills and combine them with base skills and each other

 

Sprite-0006.jpg Health steal build Sprite-0006.jpg

and this build it self split to some builds

of course  all Health steal skills need Horror accessories Sprite-0007.jpg, thought it is not necessary, it help a lot, also getting Saturation 4/4 as it give 25% extra Health steal for 15 seconds.

saturation  will take 10% of your health along side energy with the latest update to the skill instead of the old 4%, you need to take this 10% in consideration, 10% of health is a lot of health

for tanks that became easy for them to reach 4k-6k health

 

1 - AoE Health steal/Dungeons and Bosses

Sprite-0003.jpg hurricane 4/4

Sprite-0008.jpg saturation  4/4

- Use these skills with each other to get high Health Steal parameter and then burst enemy's with high physical damage and steal health from them

- The more enemy's around you, the more Health Steal you do!

- use Sprite-0001.jpg Death Call to attract the target around you toward you so that you can set yourself up for life stealing from them with the build.

 

- NOTE : by the name this build can only work if big numbers of enemy's are targeting you, so that you get a use of that AoE skills

its most effective in dungeons and against groups of players and/or mobs, although its not really a problem because you Steel Hurricane should deal up to 500-1000 depends on your damage

- even in 1v1/2v2 you will get a good amount of Health Steal

- and remember these AoE skills can detect and reveal Invisible enemy's

 

2- Single target/PvP Health steal

Sprite-0008.jpg saturation  4/4

Sprite-0008.jpg Sharp Shadow  4/4

- as of latest update for sharp shadow Steal Health from enemy's if you on the effect of Saturation

sharpss.PNG

so leveling Saturation and Sharp Shadow 4/4 is really good, also this skill damage is magical so adding some magical damage to your gears and weapons is good for more damage from it

- NOTE : the build is best and most effective in 1v1/2v2 arena, it can also be used in farming bosses as long as you don't get lot of enemy's around

don't get me wrong, its good in group fight and dungeons but it will not show its max potentials...

 

Sprite-0004.jpg Regeneration build Sprite-0004.jpg

Secret Reserve Sprite-0005.jpg 4/4

-This build need you to get a large amount of health regeneration which this skill multiply it to increase your regen

- just remember Regeneration effect get cut in half if being attacked or in battlemode(When your health GUI flash red)

- also recently i encountered some characters who wait until your Secret Reserve is activated To use all there skills and kill you before it do anything

  so getting some armor so that you can survive for the skill to do its magic

- Gear like Heroic Endurance, Golden Dawn,  Kronus, rings, and shields have a Hp regeneration Bonuses

- other gears that you can enchant with regeneration like amulets, caps and shields for more regeneration

- NOTE : this skill is useful in most of situations you might encounter and can reach to high regeneration income, that's probably why people consider it "Broken", however beware of smart players as they could play around this skill, also this skill help you by giving you bonus armor, if you managed to get high hp regeneration then the skill well do more than 900 regeneration

a tick for 12 seconds

I'm gonna keep this build for the sake of people who might be curios to know, but this build is no longer possible or good in anyway..

as for latest update to secret reserve the skill now increase the Health regen parameter instead of giving a healing buff depending on health regen, while also receive a increase to its cooldown

Capture.PNG

while a 180% might seem good on paper, the skill does not worth the leveling, considering there is much better skills to use the skill point on...and the skill decrease the regeneration rate from every 5 seconds to every 2.8 second, but that's not as good as how it used to work. (May you rest in peace...)

 

 

Sprite-0003.jpg Stun build Sprite-0008.jpg

Sprite-0007.jpg Blow of Silence  4/4

Sprite-0008.jpg Sharp Shadow  4/4

with some Skills CoolDown Sprite-0006.jpg luck and timing you can stun the enemy for a long time

- also you can combine Health steal build with the stun build, as the stun build use Sharp Shadow get Saturation to 1/4 and then Sharp shadow will steal 50% with it

use it with blow of silence to deal extra damage and steal even more

- NOTE : this build is best used in arena and 1v1/2v2, as you can completely control an enemy if your skills succeed to hit, just remember that 2 of these skill require you

to hit for there effect to happen so building accuracy is good, also remember Blow of Silence Does not stun the enemy but prevent them from using abilitys

which mean they can move and the skill does not end if you fail to attack but stay until you successfully attack or the duration end

- also use this skill on multiable targets if your team is in need, and don't waste all these stuns on 1 target, to give your team a chance to breathe

-Use Exhalation of Darkness Sprite-0003.jpg with this build because it also stun the enemy.

 

Sprite-0001.jpg Bonus armor build Sprite-0002.jpg

Sprite-0001.jpg Dark Shield  5/5

Sprite-0002.jpg Aura of Hatred  4/4

- Dark shield Damage absorb depends on the character defense and aura of hatred Give 15% extra physical and magical armor/damage

- NOTE : this build can be used to withstand bosses and players, and with support classes shield you will be literately a tank

and if you are maxed level then give aura of hatred and saturation a chance as aura of hatred give more damage also meaning more Health steal

 

bb.png Blood Protection

Blood Protection is the newest Expert skill Death Knight received.

- Blood Protection reduce incoming damage by 50% for 8 seconds with a 22 second cooldown at max level

leveling, the skill might not be required to achieve high durability but its a nice skill to have even at 1/5 if you can afford one

just remember that the reduced damage does not stack with dark shield... meaning the skill will reduce the damage after dark shield

so if you got hit 800 damage and dark shield ignored 600 then blood protection will reduce from the 200 left which at max level will reduce 100 damage.

- there is no particular build that this skill work really good with, guess it good well with all builds, thou i do not recommend leveling it, i still recommend having the skill for the sake of it existing value

 

 

Extra TIPS

- Getting Capture.PNG on Provocation is good for the PvE build and Death call is needed

- relics like Capture.PNG that deal damage also give you Health steal, so against a boss you could deal 1500 damage and you will steal from it

- Aura of Hatred Sprite-0002.jpg can be used with every build mentioned here, for more defense and surviving or for bonus damage or for more health steal

 

Capture.PNG Relics Capture.PNG

 

- Each Base Skill can have 4 relics one offensive, one defensive, one empowered and special

 

Relics are really useful, although i can't really tell what relic to pick because it depend on what you need, i will try to mention some

For Thorn of Death trying Blood-Devourer relic Capture.PNG for life steal build is good, also you can have the curse relicCapture.PNG with it, which if they both work and the effected target used an ability curse relic will give you more life steal

Great Relic of MenaceCapture.PNG can be used for Provocation for more aggro, then you can set provocation back to 1/5 in pve build because then you will have enough aggro to attract any monster attention,

for defense build add Relic of Physical Resistance dd.PNG to some skills like provocation and death shield

for stun build adding Relics like Relic of Stunning Abilityagag.PNG  to Thorn of Death, Relic of Silence Capture.PNG to Thread of Darkness can increase you chance of stunning enemy's.

Very interesting bro. Well done! :drinks:

 

Just few corrections:

You should level up Exhalation of Darkness 5/5 which will give you extra stun time and damage

 

I really wish that Exhalation of Darkness could have its stun time increased by leveling this skill, but, unfortunatly, developping this skill will only deal more magic damage to the opponent. The stun time will stay 1.6 seconds, independently of the level.

 

4 hours ago, FakeUser said:

aura of hatred Give 25% extra physical and magical armor

 

I may be wrong, but it gives 15% and not 25%. I shall control myself there :huh:

 

You managed to well explain every single build of a Deathknight. I may advise you to also say in which situations these builds can be useful. For example: Stun Build - PvP or Steal Health Build - PvE etc.

 

For the rest, very good job! :pin3:

Really? i firmly believe it increase to 2.5 second at 5/5, but i will change it

 

Just now, Higgings said:

I may be wrong, but it gives 15%

i don't think this is true because then, this skill is useless

PvP build

DeathKnight should level up Dark ShieldSprite-0001.jpg 5/5

which will give a increase chance of survival, as of the last time this skill got an update the chance of working is 80%, giving a hugh

durability and allowing you to withstand some damage.

 

after Dark Shield you should level up Exhalation of Darkness Sprite-0003.jpg 5/5

which will give you extra magical damage

 

After that Thorn of Death Sprite-0002.jpg 3/5 is the right choice to go for to add some damage to the build

you could switch the leveling of Exhalation of Darkness and Thorn of Death

for more physical damage as Exhalation of Darkness deal magical damage

 

as for Provocation Sprite-0004.jpg  and Threads of Darkness Sprite-0005.jpgkeep them at 1/5

use Provocation to make enemy lose target in case you want to run

and use Threads of Darkness to pull running enemy's toward you

you could give Threads of Darkness some levels as it give extra damage to all following attacks but then you need to lose some levels in other skills

Exhalation of Darkness 5/5 only increase the magical damage. So if you are not building magic no need to level up that skill to 5. Thorn of the death 5/5 is and 3/5 exhalation of darkness is better in pvp.

ah sorry im not a native English speaker, but i wrote it in English to reach as many players as it can

i used auto correction a lot:cry1:

anyway what i meant is you can get over 90% Health steal from multiable sources, over 30% base Health steal with accessories and runes, 4/4 sharp shadow with 50% Health steal and Blood Devourer relic with 20% Health steal

i will fix it up anyways

my dk don't have horror event cape or golden dawn boots

my only mana regen source is from the crystals on rings and belt, and i have 42 mana regen, after all forsaken faction have 3 mana regen if i remember correctly

i use lvl 19 cape with health steal, and use horror rings but with magical damage for my sharp shadow

with horror amulet without health

the only expensive thing that i had to buy was the vampirsm runes which i bought in horror event because they drop in price in  that time

 

event accessorizes are not the only option, you can buy any accessorizes with health steal

 

here are my stuff

amulet.PNGcape.PNGring.PNGstates.PNG

hope that help

For sure it increases survivability, but if you can afford a life steal build, I'd go for Steel Hurricane, more than Reserves. But if you like that skill, you can always try to balance all of these 3 skills, by adding 2 points each.

i would definitely suggest Saturation and secret reserve, its really good for PvP and farming bosses, the only disadvantage i can think about for this build is the lack of stuns

which ofc if you leveled these skills all stun skills will be at 1, and that will make you weak against runners like (warlock,hunter,shaman,druid,priest,necro,ranger and charmer)

as for using it for farming, dgs, and well... against melee classes, max these skills is op

Death knight have a total of 4 magical damage skills, exhalation of darkness, death call, sharp shadow and blow of silence

i don't really recommend magic damage as a main damage type for dk, sense these skill don't do lot of magical damage, however sharp shadow do lot of magical damage

if we are talking  about a +600 magical damage dk and 4/4 sharp it would be common thing to health steal 1k hp or more with this skill

 

if you still want to go magical damage

 

exhalation of darkness 5/5

dark shield 5/5

thorn 3/5

 

sharp shadow 4/4

blow 4/4

don't level up death call!, this skill is just shit, its just shit

use it to aggro nothing else.

I'm not really sure about how much extra agro you get from lvling Provocation but I know for sure dks lvl up Provocation cause it increases the time of the agro debuff on the enemy. I have the great relic of menace but I also made Provocation 2/5 so I can have a perma-agro debuff and I did that because I've seen that whenever the debuff ends, whoever deals considerably more dmg than me will take the agro despite my relic of menace, but with 2/5 skill and 9.3% cooldown I achived perma-agro, which in combination with that relic I can keep the attention of a boss even when I'm in party with 1k+ dmg rogues.
Good job, maybe now someone would try to get the stats of the skills aswell.. :D

well.. what you said is correct, if you are level 13..

at higher level you will have death call for more aggro and leveling Provocation won't be as needed

i am a level 24 dk with 1/5 aggro and i am fine with it and death call and no rouge or hunter damage can take the boss from me

Ehh, i think i miss somthin,, i just know that sharp shadow can steal health if we add saturation in it.  If we have 3/4  satu+ 3/4sharp( replacing steel huricane) and magic dmg arround 230 ( common m dmg for dk with all magic acce, and magic mace) would that combination of that skill will stealh so much hp? 

I hope both of u or anyone know about mecnism of dk can give me proper answer,, cause i dont have so much money to spend. Thanks

It heals a good ammount; Sharp Shadow will deal something like 300-400 ( with a 1h mace, I suppose? ) and healing you the 45% of the damage dealt.

but...

if you aim for a life steal build counting only on Saturation 3/4 ( which gives 10% Life Steal ) and Sharp Shadow to increase your survivability, you'd better think twice. Dk's life steal build, in order to work in the best way, requires to have something like 15-20% life steal as basic statistic, and then empowered with Saturation. In this way, if you get seized by Mobs while having saturation on and the upmentioned stats on, By using steel hurricane it will be like using a Potion or Heal like a necro. I use to heal something like 2000 + hps with this build. For sure, Sharp Shadow became a nice support skill in PvE also, but you cannot entirely rely on those 2 skills only, in order to increase your survivability, I fear.

you can replace steel hurricane with sharp shadow IF you are going PvP

sharp shadow will be good to life steal from 1 target or 2 at max, also the fact the it stun from a range make it amazing for PvP

thou i would not take it for PvE, it will still work but steel hurricane will do better and bosses will most likely resist sharp shadow

i mean even if sharp shadow steal 45% or even 50%, stealing 30% or 15% but from multiable target will be a huge difference

it really depend on the situation and what you want to build your skills for

sorry for late reply

i don't think that how skill work, because the regen from the skill is different from the normal regen, and you can see each of them happening alone

the skill multiply your normal regen when activated, i tried the skill so many times and each time i try it while i am not under attack the regen get doubled from when i am under attack

 

the skill multiply when activated

meaning if the skill activate while you are not under attack, even if later you get attacked the buff will not get cut, because the skill already activated

To my mind, a PvE Death knight or any tank in a game should have maxed taunt skill aka (as known as) 5/5 + menance relic. This ensures your agro being safe from others in your party or whatever you go somewhete with, especially if you do stuff with very powerful damagers or powerful healers. If your have a low damage yourself as a tank, you should definitely go for maxed taunt skill.

 

Nowadays exhalation is not useful to have lvled up in PvE. Bosses resist the damage most of the time, extra damage by lvling a skill increases slightly. The skill being lvled up is good only in PvP cases in my opinion. Since i love to experiment and do different kind of equipment setups, i wouldn't even use a 2h weapon on a death knight with magic dmg bonus. I'd use 2h axe/mace/hammer, depending on bonuses i prefer.

Yep, exhalation is kinda a Jack of all trades: it is mainly used for its stunning power, which might result in being good enough if it is used for this purpose. When fighting against a boss, its strenght relies on the relic you have put on, mainly, since the boss resists your damage, the stun or even both.

 

At current state of things, I would not rely on a 2h weapon for such class; nowadays a 1h weap and a shield grant you a high damage output, sometimes even higher than a 2h weapon. 

 

Agree on the Taunt part.

I love death knight class because of that

in my opinion i find dk one of the most diverse class in the game, there is so many builds and ways to go around skills and equipment

its really depends on the user and the situation they are in

 

thou i disagree on the taunt part

having taunt 5/5 with a 60% taunt increase relic is just overkill in most situation, there is no need to have that much taunt

sense you also have death call which also taunt, and spamming these 2 skills will keep the aggro for you

but what i am saying is from my experience with the skill

i always had it 3/5 and never did a healer or a damager took the aggro from me

I have a friend who uses healing classes and easily gets agro because of the amount of heal he generates. Tanks with 3/5 taunt or sometimes higher still kept losing agro from them.

I meant only boss fights in dungeons and when you have 2 tanks in a pt while you aren't the tanking one.

Plus i wouldn't rely on that either. It's basically good to have for that extra bit higher damage output in the dungeons.

They could Valorize the usage of these weapons adding like a bonus damage if we use a 2h weapon. Almost like how they did with shields. We would sacrifice speed for the sake of the damage and it would also give tanks (or even seekers) a point on using 2h weapons if necessary.

Hello, I'm a new dark knight, does secret secret build still work?

no secret reserve formula or how it work got changed 

now it increase your Health Regeneration Parameter instead of giving you a heal buff depending on your hp regen

it still work, but i guess not as good as it used to be

What specialist skills should I have being a tank for pve?

Read PvE build and Bonus armor build for more information

 

of course level up dark shield, and aura of hatred, also the new skill blood protection is really good

maybe secret reserve, but only if you have lot of hp regen.

get death call to aggro mobs in dungeons, and getting some levels in provocation wont hurt

 

maximizing your armor is an obvious thing to do, but don't neglect your damage

 

i hope i helped

its been over a year sense i made this guide, and lot of changes happened to death knight

i am trying to update the guide with all the crap they changed :cat7:

and adding the new skill to the mix

while also trying to clean it i guess, (i find it a messy guide)

its not the greatest guide, it could be done better...

 

even thou i don't play the game anymore i will update this guide as long as i can

for my fellow Knights out there

accuracy is really important in PvE or it dose for me, i have 30% accuracy which i find not enough :/, maybe i am going crazy from how much i miss my target, or maybe its my stupid luck, but accuracy its a good thing and getting around 20% or more is good.

 

for a dk whose build around life steal, missing is a big no no

 

sorry for my late replay i have no excuse :cry1:
