So unholy, at least in ST, is pretty much forever fudged until they get pieces with magus and/or chains.
I’d rather all the azerite traits be garbage and the spec function well on its own than have it the other way around. Unholy blight’s still garbage, a clumsy nerf to bursting sores because of some MDI nerd, no addressing of RNG/unreliable rune return, no addressing of our core abilities being as weak as a wet noodle, with most of our damage being passive in the forms of pets, autoattacks, and a braindead “fire-and-forget” DoT.
A shame that Legion came so close to perfection, with both abilities and minions mattering, and all it needing was some disease gameplay. If we just took the spec and all its artifact passives included, copied it over to BfA, and replaced castigator or necrosis with some disease-focused talents, the spec would be absolutely perfect.
