I recently went with a frost spec centered around obliterate, and yeah, the dps, threat, tanking ability seems improved. I used to be around 1400-1500 raid dps and now am around 1800-1900. I'm still losing to the pah-bleep on threat. We recently did patchwerk with War MT, War #1 OT and myself as #2 OT, vigilance, vigilance...and I passed #1 OT by a wide margin over the course of the fight (better gearing on my part was a factor, but he's good tank too). It was interesting to watch.

It's okay, just a matter of waiting a few secs before next pull...like waiting for pah-bleep to drink.
