    Unholy Aura is a passive death knight ability learned at level 60 for death knights with the frost or unholy specializations.


    All death knights can learn to exude a dark, raging battle aura that causes allied creatures around them to move and regenerate life more quickly.[1] (WC3Man 38)

    Before Wrath of the Lich KingEdit

    Prior to WotLK, Unholy Aura was possessed by death knight bosses such as Baron Rivendare. It did about 150 damage every 2 seconds to anyone in range.

    Patch changes Edit

    • Warlords-Logo-Small Patch 6.0.2 (14-October-2014): Changed from melee and ranged attack speed to haste and versatility.
    • Mists-Logo-Small Patch 5.0.4 (28-August-2012): Re-added; changed from All party or raid members within 45 yards of the Death Knight move X% faster. This effect does not stack with other movement improving effects.
    • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): Replaced with Improved Unholy Presence. Allows the death knight to keep the movement speed bonus of Unholy Presence in any presence, and increases rune regeneration rate while in Unholy Presence.
