DPS rotation with Reaping:

Unholy Death Knight Dps Rotation Reaping

Army of the Dead – Is used few seconds before the encounter, or when changing phase. Using it in while doing your combo will cause a DPS loss and a combo break. The summons copy your Hit, Attack Power, and Haste at the moment of summoning – remember that.

Summoning a Gargoyle – Is also used when you have buffs and procs on you because it copies stats. You can’t summon in instantly when the fight starts, it takes 60 Rune Power. You can start the fight in with the Unholy Presence, quickly gain the Rune Power, then summon the Gargoyle and only then go back to the Blood Presence. This is done because our gargoyle remembers the Haste from Unholy Presence, but not the damage from Blood Presence.

Don’t forget about your Pet. It does plenty of damage.
