I'd also say Desecration is a must in the 0/32/39 spec as that extra 5% damage with everything you do +the 2% bonus from bone shield being up is pretty nice. I believe GC posted something on the official boards about them possibly looking into changing how DKs ground effects look. I had to explain to my guild a few times on grobbulus last night that the green circles with the hands in them weren't poison clouds. Also they did say that they plan to nerf Gargoyle eventually as its apparently putting out too much damage. Tony I might also suggest adding either Cinderglacier (20% more damage to a frost/shadow attack) or Razorice (10% more frost damage with enough stacks on an enemy) to one of your weapons as you try out the HB spamming.
