"Do you have any numbers to justify it? The upper half of the Unholy tree on the PTR is currently a pile of meh for a blood build, it seems ridiculuous that taking them over Annihalation would up your DPS."The Unholy Tree: Vicious Strikes is not ideal. Virulence is not ideal. Epidemic loosens up the rotation. Morbidity increases the damage of our primary rune dump. Ravenous Dead is amazing even without Master of Ghouls (+3% strength), and increases our DPS across the board. Necrosis adds a little bit of shadow damage to our autoattacks.The Frost Tree: Runic Power Mastery increases Dancing Rune Weapon uptime. Improved Icy Touch and Black Ice improve only our Icy Touch and Frost Fever, which is a miniscule portion of our DPS.Death Strike: 75% weapon damage. With Improved Death Strike, it becomes 105% weapon damage. With the Glyph and at least 26 runic power (not hard to accomplish), it becomes 130% weapon damage.Obliterate: 80% weapon damage. With 1 disease, 92.5% weapon damage. With 2 diseases, 105% weapon damage. With the Glyph, 125% weapon damage.The top tiers of Frost is actually more of a talent point waste for Blood than the top tiers of Unholy. You need to effectively spend 8 points on nothing in Frost to even get access to Annihilation. On the other hand, if you spend 2 talent points in the tree you are speccing into anyway, and use the necessary glyph, Death Strike hits harder without consuming the diseases.
