I'm looking for a good 3.1 leveling build. This is my current spec: Talent Spec
I'm doing okay, but find that i'm taking lots of damage and having to eat/bandage a lot. Am I spec'd correctly for leveling?

I find the key to easy DK leveling is self heals and AoE. Blood tree has the best leveling toys. I'll toss out a level 70 spec on the fly as an example. http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#jbEroccIocM0oZZbghI0bdM0o
You may notice that this doesn't have all the max single-target dps talents and it also has some tank talents.
The idea is to run around pulling as many quest mobs as you can, spread both diseases around with unholy blight ticking away and spam blood boil like a madman. After the fight you should have a good bit of health and runic power left. Then you just pop a rune tap to instant self-heal and pull the next group.
Oh, and perma ghoul =)
I'd agree here to some extent. I reccomend, like Yrch said, for you to specc blood during Outland, and then (if you want to) switch to UH for Northrend.
Blood is great due to all of its self healing gimmicks and "get out of jail free"- cards :P The (imo) ideal choice for someone just starting out as a DK.
The Blood/perma ghoul build linked on the other hand is ~ :)
I personally dont like blood/ghoul builds but they're great for leveling and if you like a pet then why not? :P
But I'd switch some talents around kinda like this
(if you really want that pet)
Reason why is that when I leveled as blood i found Vendetta and Blood worms completely excessive in terms of self healing, and Dark conviction/bloody vengeance/Abom might are simply too huge dps talents to pass up.
Due to the increased focus on DS I dont think you should have any problems to stay up :P
(I'd still reccomend a deep blood leveling build though, *rawr*)

would this also be good for grinding from 60+ ?
Do you mean your build? or his?
If you mean your build, you're missing some key talents there for unholy, here's how I'd say it "should" looks like: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#jZZfMhIxrdxco0cout
and then just max out wandering plague and BCB
Lemme know if you want some cookie cutters for 80 though
If you're talking about his blood/ghoul build, sure it's fully useable for 60+, that's its focus ;)
