My DK is blood specced and have a couple of heroic dungeon items, uses the two hander sword from the coliseum scenario (with rune of the fallen crusader) and otherwise is decked out in quest greens/blues (haven't done the entire dread wastes even).
It takes a little time to kill the twins, but it's no problem.What I do:
-(Kill the adds leading up to the twins)
-Mount up, target vek'nilash, and run up to vek'lor to aggro him.
-Run over to the chamber entrance, and dismount in the little niche just to the right of the entrance with your back to the wall. There you'll be standing in the little corner between the column and the wall, in case you get knockbacked (which shouldn't happen).
-Don't bother spending cd's or runes at first. Vek'lor will nuke you from a distance while vek'nilash melees you. When they teleport-switch, vek'lor will be standing in melee range and vek'nilash will stand at a distance. He will then run back up to you.
-Start damage when both of the bosses stand in melee range.
-Start tearing vek'nilash up. Do not try using plague or frost strike; they are magic abilities and won't affect him and thus wastes a death strike. What you use is heart strike and death strike. I prefer death strike whenever possible because the aoe-effect of blood strike doesn't do much good; your only priority is to nuke down vek'nilash.
-Use dancing rune blade as soon as you have the rune power for it, and use it as soon as it goes off cd.
-Use horn of winter as soon as it goes off cd, to generate runic power for rune strike.
-Use empower rune weapon early after you have spent all your runes, to maximize dps.
-Use anti-magic shell to regenerate more runic power from vek'lor's magic attacks.
-Do NOT raise a ghoul or use army of the dead. That will only result in chaos; vek'nilash will run all over the place getting taunted by the army, and you risk getting knockbacked every which way (guess it's because of melee minions hitting vek'lor or something - don't remember).
Sometimes your blood worms will aggro vek'nilash when they teleport-switch places. Run a little forward to hit him to regain aggro, and quickly run back to the corner. Continue dps.
This way, vek'nilash gets whittled down slowly but steadily. No point using any other abilities than described above, as they are magic based, such as soul reaper or death and decay etc. Note that your dmg is nerfed because you can't put the diseases on vek'nilash.
I take em down every time and before the enrage, but it does take a little while.
Oh, and I'm only missing the pet from viscidus, twin emperors and gluth. Got most of em the two first weeks, but then nothing. I got sick and tired of doing razorgore, so when I saw the pet on the AH for 500g I leapt at the opportunity. Hoping to get the last three pets tonight!
