Dark Arbiter Build

So this is my version of the DA build for Unholy DK’s

It’s not the easiest to macro due to the fact you need to have a certain about of Power/Procs/Runes to use this.

I have not used Icy-Veins, i find it very outdated and not always correct. It’s almost as bad as Noxxic.

Instead most of this comes from testing and from the 2 Unholy discords before anyone mentions it’s not using Unholy Frenzy and or Pestilent Pustules etc etc…

This is why:

Unholy Frenzy or Clawing Shadows will be the popular talents. With the damage difference not being so large as to one dwarves the other, this will be fight dependant. If boss mechanics regularly push you out of range Clawing Shadows will do you better as you will have higher sustained damage from range. If you can sit on the boss most of the fight, Unholy Frenzy will do you well.

Pestilent Pustules will have it’s use, and Blighted Rune Weapon will have it’s use. It comes down to a very miniscule damage difference, so use whichever fits your situation or playstyle better.

This will also only use Death Coil on mod so this is not a 1 button lazy macro, mainly due to the way DA needs to be used.

Everything else remains common to multiple iterations of the build.

When using this it’s best to have the required Legendaries to use this but if you MUST use it because you only want to use what’s classed as the “best” build then so be it.

For the boss fights:

Open up with Armies of the Dead. Then manually use Dark Transformation (If no Legos) and then Right click to attack to proc Unholy Strength.
Start the macro, once you have 7+ wounds (6 and your pet may burst one) then hit Alt to use Apocolypse.
When you have FULL Runic power 2 Runes and a Sudden Doom proc then hit Shift to summon the Dark Arbiter, as soon as she is summoned then dump all your Runic Power buy hitting Ctrl, keep dumping Runic Power at 45+ so you buff DA’s damage while active.

Once she is gone, just keep your plagues up and attack as normal using your Death Coils to reduce the Dark Transformation time and on Sudden Doom procs for your free Death Coil.
Remember to keep an eye on your Apoc/DA coming off cooldown and refresh as needed.

Now all that’s explained, the macro:
