View Full Version : Frost spec opinions

02-17-2009, 12:54 PM
Hello all,

I'm pondering the last 5 points in my frost spec (http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/info/classes/deathknight/talents.html?tal=005502000000000000000000000325050 51300301123012051013500052000000000000000000000000 00).

I've had a lot of success thus far with this spec; any opinions for improvement? My last 5 points question comes down to the choice between Acclimation (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=50152) + Chill of the Grave (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=50115) or Blood of the North (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=61434). (or, of course, a mix?) Any opinions here?

Thanks in advance for any guidance!

Before asking that, ask yourself if it's worth it to burn 6 points in Improved Icy Talons and 2 in Frost Aura, yet save none for Killing Machine or Chill of the Grave.

IIRC, haste does nothing for a DK, and unless you have no shaman to drop a Windfury Totem, you don't need Improved Icy Talons at all. Also, Frost Aura doesn't stack with other resistance effects like Mark of the Wild.

But to answer your question, Blood of the North. More Death Runes equals more Icy Touch, which (when combined with the Sigil of Frozen Conscience, Chill of the Grave, and the Major Glyph of Icy Touch) equals more damage and more Frost Strike spam.

The following is my build that includes Icy Talons. The last two points can either fill out Bladed Armor or be put into Epidemic. Likewise the points from Chill of the Grave can be taken out to get Icy Talons and Epidemic.

This is one that does not have Tcy Talons.

I can't look at your spec because my access is blocked at work O.o but I can tell you that Frost Aura is a complete waste of talent points due to MotW, pally auras or shaman totems. BotN and Killing Machine are absolutely amazing must have talents.
