Blood DPS tree is not worthy taking, because talents are bugged, but it can be useful as TANK.

As for frost tree, it can have many Talent Specializations, that increase your damage per second.
Frost becomes more viable at End Game gear which contains Armor Penetration, but that would be hard here, cause we don't have RS.
You can have lots of ArPen in your gear, and the trick is to socket it till it reaches 100% (Only if you collect all ArPen Gear)


Unholy tree is AoE tree, that is very useful against Lich King encounter, as well as Sindragosa ( Not counting the tombs but the diseases kept on a target while she flies, overall constant damage with getting the stacks really slow..)
Unholy has the best raid utility than other DK talent trees, because it gives debuff ''Ebon Plague'' which means it increase enemy's magic damage taken by 13%.(As well as boosting priest's and dk's diseases)

Actually, Blood has the some of the best DPS i've seen. I'm not sure about bugged talents etc. over here, but I've seen a blood friend of mine do 19k DPS on Festergut 25N.
Also, regarding your Unholy build, you don't use Glyph of Dark Death without Morbidity, go for Glyph of Disease instead (which should be MANDATORY for all specs). Same goes for Frost and Blood, use Glyph of Disease instead of Glyph of Icy Touch and Glyph of Death Strike respectively. Why? Because refreshing diseases with 1 rune and 1 ability is more pro (obviously) than using 2 runes and 2 abilities. If Glyph of Disease is bugged in some way, my apologies.
PS: Avatheavenger's spec is the flavour of the month.

Blood is currently bugged here, like in any other server.
It was best single target DPS in retail.

This talent build would be good also

Link to Unholy Spec when using a non-proc weapon (SE / Cryptmaker).

Link to 1 variation of the popular frost dps spec on TW.

It should be noted that even without a proc weapon the unholy frost subspec linked above surpasses the blood subspec one as early as early icc25n gear or even before (toc25-icc10n)
Vaen - Human Warrior
Verwandlung - Human Lock
Parallel - Human Priest

Also to be noted that there is an unholy subspec variation for frost DPS as well, which on paper should give you greater DPS output at higher (~T10) gear levels.

This is what I'll probably use when I get around to making a DK

(link isn't working so basically it's a 0 56 15 build)

That spec provides far too little damage increase as compared to the threat increase it gives, because you no longer have subversion. Besides, BCB is quite shitty while dual wielding, i don't know why, but its probably only accounting for the main hand weapon alone, which is not really worth those points.

The talent build i use for Blood DPS : http://www.truewow.org/talent-calculato ... bxc:ILGVMm
Why not 3/3 Bloodworms ? Because they do really low DPS, and as they count as pet, they are HEALED by Shaman's Chain heal.
*My link from the last post should not be advised, because i haven't tested bloodworms.

As DW Frost, with 100% ArP, BCB is 5-6% of your total damage done. You'd want it.
