I wasn't going to level as unholy, for the reasons you stated, but then an interesting thing was brought to my attention: If you subspec into frost, grab lichborne at 81, grab the minor glyph of Death's Embrace, and set up a macro to cast death coils at yourself, you can spam coils to heal yourself insanely well, as in 34 RP, with 20 refunded (effectively 14 RP), for around 12k healing on a 1s GCD. You can easily heal yourself to full faster as unholy than as blood or frost. Between that and the permaghoul, I think Unholy is my choice for leveling.

You can use DC to heal yourself? I was under the impression that you could only heal your ghoul. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Death Coil heals undead. While Lichborne is active, you are undead.

That is an interesting idea. I'm curious to hear how well it really works. Seem viable to me. Wowwiki references the self-healing ability under Lichborne as well: http://www.wowwiki.com/Lichborne

Is the lichborne/death coil healing viable mid pvp combat? I used to use death pact all the time in pvp combat, good health return minor CD, just worked it into the rotation. But since it's been nerfed I'm looking for another combat healing tactic. So when you have RP to spare, can this be used effectively while in pvp combat?

Lichborne + DC is a great heal for DKs, especially for pvp, going up against casters if you pop your AMS you get the RP from their damage which equals more healing for you. Just be careful using LB around Pallies as they have so many undead damage modifiers.
