First, to correct some misconceptions:
Unholy isn't comparable to a BM Hunter. We get exactly 3 talents that modify our pet's damage output, one of which Blood and Frost both get because it gives extra Strength and damage.
The pet from Unholy doesn't end up doing 65% of your job for you like a pet for BM does. This is not a "set it and forget it" pet.
As for not going Unholy from 55, that's ridiculous. Unholy has the fastest leveling potential of the three tree due to movement speed increases and the ability to AoE anywhere from 4-9 mobs at a time.
And for "DKs don't get many spells", what the hell are you talking about? An Unholy DK gets just as many abilities as a Blood DK for leveling. There's no question about, "hmm, what do I do with these Rune things?" You kill things with them and loot the scarred bodies.As for the OP's leveling spec, it's bad.
First, you won't have 3 Glyphs 'til 80, so don't include 3 Glyphs in a leveling build, ever.
Imp AMS and Suppression are tanking talents, along with Anticipation.
Desecration is a PvP talent.
Reaping is unnecessary to level with and you missed out on key talents like CF, EP, Morb, Epi (arguable), Virulence, etc.This spec
is much closer to the mark for a 58 Unholy DK just leaving Ebon Hold.
Here's a level 70

well i'm pushing forwards towards a dps/survival kinda spec. Not a tanking spec, hell no. I know i added some parts that self heal, extra armour etc that look like tanking but yeah, that's just to make me last longer and all.
Plz educate me further.
It's all unnecessary. I leveled my DK Unholy from 55-80. I never bandaged in Outlands and only once in Northrend. All you need is Death Strike, even versus Elites. There is no reason to go to this extreme and get tanking talents and all the self-healing you've picked up.
There's a time and a place for survivability. This is like bringing mountain-climbing gear to a light jog around the neighborhood. This is overkill.
So yeah from http://www.wowhead.com/?forums&topic=130665#post-reply
This is y i choose unholy, cos u don't really need to heal your self that much.
