Unholy Death Knight is definitely where it's at for me as well!I love my ghoul; he keeps me company when I find myself out farming in the middle of the night, no guildies online to chat with, queues too long to bother with dungeoning until everybody else wakes up, not a soul to be seen out in the world. He's also selfless enough to give his (un)life for me via Death Pact when the incoming damage is massive and the healer is too busy with the tank to notice little ol' DPS me. I can hardly wait for MoP where, at least the changed wording of the talent would make it seem, I won't actually have to kill him in order to heal off of him!I love being the underdog, or at least the illusion of such. Biding my time while being the gimped, red-headed stepchild spec of my class for most of the expansion, finally being brought in line with the very last patch, and chuckling over just how many people didn't get the memo that Unholy is actually competitive... it may be petty and selfish but, I must admit, I never get tired of getting jammed in LFR with five other DPS DKs, all Frost, kicking all their butts on damage and being increduously asked "HOW did you beat all those Frosts with UNHOLY?!"I *adore* my Anti-Magic Shell being beefed up by Magic Supression! I use that move like it's going out of style! The healers love me for actually having it on my bars, and it's so gratifying to see DBM telling me that X horribly-damaging AoE is going out in Y seconds, popping AMS, seeing my health stay the same while everybody else's takes a plunge *and* watching my Runic Power bar go from totally empty to totally full in 0.1 seconds! More Death Coils courtesy of a boss attack that didn't actually hurt me at all, and a faster Dark Transformation!I love my Anti-Magic Zone! I've actually managed to save the tank with it a few times, when the boss' hitbox is small enough that my zone reaches the tank, and it absorbs JUST enough damage to save the tank from a hit that would've otherwise killed him when the big heal he needed would've hit just a quarter of a second after he died!Uh... sorry to babble... I mean, there's always more, but this is too long already. But dang, I just LOVE being an Unholy Death Knight! I love the playstyle! I love proving to people who are biased against DKs that our class is GREAT and that some of us actually DO know how to play it! I love having SO many useful cooldowns, knowing exactly which key each one is bound to and exactly when the right time to use each one is without even having to think about it... this spec feels more downright intuitive to me than any other character I've played before, and I'm pretty dang sure she'll be my main as long as I keep playing WoW!
