Faceroller - Unholy Deathknight (Continued)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3
by: branana [More]
I didn't create this module, deadca7 did but decided to discontinue it. I made some modifications to it:

- Icy touch first instead of Plague strike because usually you are running up to the target.
- Check runes when using Icy Touch and Plague Strike
- Prioritize Scourge Strike when already have desolation buff
- Prioritize Blood Strike when we don't have desolation buff

Original addon page: http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/fileinfo.php?id=15337
3:

Will prioritize Scourge Strike if both blood runes are death runes and are ready even if no desolation buff.
Removed horn of winter, wasn't working well with some strength of earth totems

--------------------

2:

Restructured checks.
Added support for Reaping (talent)

--------------------

I wanted to second what Volack stated. Is there anyway you could tweak this mod to the following rotation?

Single target rotation is:
PS IT BS BS SS DC HoW
SS DC SS SS DC (DC)

I wanted to thank you for keeping this module going -- you may not hear this often enough -- but I as a player of WoW I really appreciate you doing all of this hard work. Great stuff.

I didn't see any information off hand for this -- but if you have a paypal acct I'd be willing to donate and I'm sure others would be too.

Hrm

Needing some help. I'm an unholy spec'd DK and I can't get the module to work. I've extracted it to the Experimental folder and it doesn't show up as one of the addons in the list for modules, just 2 frost DK addons do.

I was wondering if this is set up for reaping builds.

I tried using it and it seemed to be the rotation for non reaping builds with a Blood strike then scourge back and forth rotation.


Anyway we can use a rotation like:

PS IT BS BS SS DC HoW
SS DC SS SS DC (DC)


i noticed a line in the LUA about reaping but didnt know if I needed to change something for it to work. Any help would be great.

just by curiosity reasons, does this have the fix to where it doesn't monitor HoW or at least only your own?

if you're running with 2 DKs with the older version and the other DK used HoW, it would show HoW indefinitely until you casted it thus not showing you a clear rotation which is stupid. buffs should be monitored by the user or using a different addon not for a rotation even for runic dumps.

I don't support the Faceroller addon itself.

Also because you are posting errors with "UnholyTest" in them that indicates older version. I removed that name and renamed it to Unholy Deathknight.

I have deleted everything faceroller, even went so far as to delete the line in the .txt file of the addon list with faceroller. Still nothing. and I have tried this several times. There is nothing but frost builds in the moduel drop down box of faceroller.

Also redownloaded and nothing.
This was posted on the faceroller fourm, this guy is having the same issue.

Please don't flame me for this ... I really am not an idiot . I have installed faceroller for use with my lvl 80 warlock. I d/l'ed the 3 modules for it and put the folders everywhere that is possible to put them. When that didn't work, I resorted to reading the instructions which didn't help. I have tried putting the module folders in the ..\addons\ folder and in the ..\addons\faceroller\ folder and in the ..\addons\faceroller\modules\ folder. After relogging into WoW after each move, I still don't see any modules in the "select module" dropdown box. Please let me know what I am doing wrong.

Faceroller: no such module: UnholyTest

I then open up Faceroller to the moduels and there was no option to chose unholy.


Maybe I placed the files in the wrong location. Where should the files be placed?

Thank You for your help.

few things ive noticed. there's no priority to use gargoyle, should be used on cd or at least add an option to include it. As well, options to prioritize either IT or PS for fights where you move around a lot.

no HoW... i get the cup icon yet i can HoW for RP... why isnt it showing up.

also, its better to

PS, IT, BS, SS, BS, DC, HoW, SS, BS, SS, BS, DC, DC, DC

OR with reaping (needs to be calculated in as this is the spec to be with 2pT10)

PS, IT, BS, BS, SS, DC, HoW, SS, DC, SS, SS, DC, DC

easiest way to solve the reaping factor is by prioritizing BS over SS completely.

Also a 3rd option for aoe fights such as Anub, with pest glyph and 2 points in morbidity.

IT, PS, pest, DnD, DC, HoW (initially) and then
SS, BS, BB, SS, DC, SS, Pest, DnD, DC, HoW (repeat)

not sure if it is possible to do the aoe one though.

It's more a thing of "How much uptime do I really have" and that is, using SimulationCraft and my own experience and some calculation, something around 98%, even when having a heavy Move-Boss (ie. Blood Princes which is a horror).

You are basically sacrificing one SS out of three for a 100% Desolation Uptime, which simply doesn't match up with the dmg you loose when sacrificing that one SS.

Look, when you do 2 SS and 1 BS you are sacrificing a CD where you could use DC, so you are loosing 3-4k dmg.
You are basically catching up with the loss of 100% uptime AND doing more damage. (ie. Festergut, Blood Princes, Rotface)


Mind you, just with 2pt10.

Maybe a good compromise would be creating two templates? One for the general and one for Tier 10 Set Bonus? :>


P.S.

Just tested it and yes, that's exactly the problem I had. With changing that part in the lua the following happens:
Icy Touch, Plague Strike, Blood Strike
and then it suggests using Scourge Strike.
What I want though -- and what would be a lot more logical since the CDs need to end up more or less at the same time for using SS with Death Runes -- would be doing two Blood Strikes, then the Scourge Strike and as soon as the Blood Runes turn to Death Runes, one more Scourge Strike.

Is that technically possible? Because that is what I couldn't figure out.

Priority goes as such:

blood strike (don't have desolation) > scourge strike > blood strike (have desolation)

and scourge strike is used when:

at least 1 frost rune and 1 unholy rune is available
at least 1 frost or unholy rune is available and 1 death rune is available

You are basically saying in the following scenario:
- we do NOT have desolation buff
- we have active and ready death runes that came from blood runes

It suggests you use one of the death runes to get desolation back up

You want it to suggest to use both death runes to scourge strike instead

Correct?

Yes, I do, and while I know that you coded SS to be priorized with Desolation, it still doesn't seem right for me to priorize SS via Desolation.

I mean, sure, in a real static fight it's no problem, but I would assume that SS > BS and therefor > Desolation. So if the buff drops off from you, I would still prefer using SS instead of using BS, since after refreshing the sicknesses, I will be proccing Desolation again.

(ie. IT, PS, BS, BS, SS, DC, HoW, SS, DC, SS, SS, DC)

Seems as if you miss-arranged the Death Runes to be used as Blood Strikes, instead of Scourge Strikes?
That's what I noticed, at least, since when Death Runes are up, it continues using BS, and I honestly don't know much coding to do it myself.
I just end up messing everything up
Do you have desolation in your spec?
