Properties
Affects

Epidemic is a Death knight talent located in the 1st tier of the Unholy Tree. At max rank, it increases the duration of [Blood Plague] (caused by [Plague Strike]) and [Frost Fever] (caused mainly by [Icy Touch]) from 21 to 33 seconds. The damage dealt per second of the diseases is unchanged, so the talent causes the diseases to deal more total damage over their full durations.

Notes

3 points Epidemic is required to choose [Contagion] further down in the tree.
