Good Rotations To Use:
PS –> IT –> BS –> BS –> SS –> RP Dump (RP Dump means use your runic power)
SS –> SS –> SS –> RP Dump
Tip #1: Don’t Open With Death Grip
Unless you run into a noob, this would be a mistake. If you use Death Grip right away, the opponent is just going to use their escape cc and get away from it right away. A lot of people like to open with this but it’s quite expected and easily counterable when it’s used right away. Wait until they’ve already activated their escape cc, that’s the time for you to use it.
Tip #2: Unholy Presence
This gives you a movement bonus and a shorter global cool down time, this will help you spam diseases and other skills more rapidly. You might want to swap out to a frost presence for it’s protection in some instances, but the majority of the time you will want to keep this active.
Tip #2: Manage Your Runic Power
Managing the use of your runic power is very important in Death Knight PVP, you don’t want to be in a situation where you don’t have the right skill available to use because you used up all your runes when you didn’t NEED to. Wait until your runic bar is just about full before you use a skill that is going to sap some, this way you’ll have some left over for when the heat really gets turned up.
This applies to runes as well. Use a couple runes then wait until the ones you’ve just used are almost done with their cool down before using more, this will allow you to have runes usable for important skills like strangulate when you really need it.
