Going into Antorus, The Burning Throne, these are some of the higher item level relics that you may find useful.
Unholy DK Tier Sets:
Tier 20 set:
Each ghoul summoned by Army of the Dead increases your damage dealt by 15% for 3 sec. Duration extends and does not stack.
Each rune you spend reduces the cooldown of Army of the Dead by 6.0 seconds.
Tier 21 Set:
Death Coil causes the target to take an additional 35% of the direct damage dealt over 4 sec.
Death Coil has a 20% chance to deal damage a second time.

Recommended Antorus Gear
section below for recommendations on BiS gear pieces.
In this Tier are legendaries that are either absolutely required for synergy with a specific build, or are overwhelmingly strong in their own right.
This legendary is first in S-Tier as it offers a truly massive amount of single target damage, regardless of build or spec. It can be paired with anything, anytime.
This legendary offers a full talent, and likewise can work in any spec or any situation that requires AOE or cleave.
Still offers an absolutely absurd amount of stats for a single item and a single slot, as well as the single highest possible Strength gain of any slot. Still broken.
: Only manages to make it into S-Tier due to its stark requirement to maximize the effectiveness of the Dark Arbiter build, in conjunction with its buff in 7.2.5. Without Dark Arbiter, this legendary is solidly in B tier.
In this tier, we have legendaries that are very strong, when paired with other specific legendaries, or when used with specific builds.
This legendary is extremely strong with Defile build, and can be used in conjunction with any other legendary item. Any Legendary in B tier or above will perform best.
This legendary has seen better days. It is still very strong, but is best when paired with one of the S-Tier legendaries. It is also a great candidate for the Defile Build.
This tier is for legendaries that are strong in certain situations, but don't have particularly powerful DPS effects beyond their massive stat allocations or occasionally large bonuses.
Still offers movement speed, better now that it gives you speed based on your best stat of the Big Three (Haste/Mastery/Crit)
Uvanimor, the Unbeautiful has always been one of those legendaries that just... is. It gives you runes. But not always. It's nice as a smoother, but not necessarily tremendously powerful by any means.
Before the change preventing Abomination from proccing Sephuz on demand, this legendary would have been in S tier for its massive synergy with Dark Arbiter alone. As it is, the utility of this ring is nice, but not particularly favorable. On a fight where you can interrupt frequently it can be better than some options. Otherwise, it is largely a stat stick.
Still here, still shielding. Prydaz will likely never fall out of favor as its massive shield and insane stats will always give it a place around someone's neck sometime, even if it is just as a placeholder. Not as good as some choices, but like most in this Tier, solid if you don't have many options in the upper tiers.
This tier is generally for legendaries that are alright, but not particularly great in any situations. The simplest way to say it is that they are "background" legendaries.
Great stats, awful effect. Returns even fewer runes than Uvanimor on average. Is stronger in general without T19 resource generation, but still underwhelming in comparison with other options.
These last two legendaries don't offer much value beyond being high item level stat sticks. If they are your only legendaries, do not be afraid to use them, but in general almost any other legendary will be suitable to replace them with.
Many of the useful aspects of the Acherus Drapes are covered by the Spell Eater talent, which should be enough said; but let's go further: This takes up a tier slot, it doesn't offer very much Strength, it requires you to have taken damage and be taking damage for the best part of its effect to work, when AMS is primarily used for preventing damage or spell effect, rather than healing it.
Lots of sockets, Haste and Mastery. If you don't have a second legendary yet, and you can craft or buy this, go right ahead, it's a great starter. Replace it with anything from B Tier or above, the stats are hard to argue with. Otherwise, this is a rather lackluster legendary.
Recommended Antorus, the Burning Throne Gear
This is not a best-in-slot list. Getting all of these items will not assure you the greatest possible DPS, but these are the best items accessible purely from
This is a general recommendation for gearing in
. With Warforged and Titanforged possibilities, having a set list of items as being "best in slot" is impossible. In many situations, an increase in item level is going to be better, even if the stat allocation isn't perfect. (A few exceptions would include giving up Mastery on a slot for an lesser gain in Strength, as Mastery is one of our best stats, and sims as greater in value to Strength in many cases, namely when you have greater than 100% Mastery).
As for holding onto Tier 20 bonuses entering Antorus, the likely best choices will be the Legs and the Cloak from Tier 20, with the rest of the pieces in use for 4pc T21 (If you choose to go that route). However, the best legendary options for the strongest spec setups right now depend on using two legendaries that take up Tier slots, which will disallow you from using combination tier sets. That said, here are some pieces you can try to hunt for, in the event you cannot get Tier from Antorus itself. The best Tier slots for Tier 21 are going to be the Helm, Cape, Legs and Gloves, as the other two slots are typically filled by Cold Heart and Tak'theritrix's Shoulderpads in the current standard build, in addition to the stat layout on the Shoulder and Chest tier pieces being very poor.
Note: Versatility and Crit this patch are both slightly better than they were before, with Haste beginning to fall in favor a bit, especially for Arbiter spec. Versatility and Mastery play very well off of one another, especially when taking the Shadow damage or Mastery traits with the Netherlight Crucible.
