Okay so I tanked as blood forever, but now I am more and more interested in DW tanking as frost. But since switching to frost my HP is kinda low, and I want to make sure I have things set up right on my toon.
Here is my armory profile, please hand up some advice.
Only comment I would have is, I wouldn't put points in Scent of Blood and Chill of the Grave; 2 points in either one would be fine. I'd put a point in Death Chill and Icy Touch. Crit on demand and a slowing effect are helpful. I personally like Morbidity and found the quicker cool down very useful when I DW'd. To get here I only put 3 points in Killing Machine and it still procs often.
Get used to the lower HP in Frost, but in return you can absord more punishment. I went back to a 2 handed weapon for my Frost spec last night after I picked up the sword off of Marrowgar, but really liked DW'ing.
yeah ur gonna lose HP from blood to frost i had to deal with the same thing But u get to take alot more dmg and more avoidance, and ur also geming for agi&hit etc.. if u wanna get ur HP up gem for meta then gem for Stam
Have to disagree w/ Theotherone, I prefer 3/3 SoB and 2/2 CotG as Frost DW. I've found RP regen as DW w/ SoB is faster.
Maxed RP regen from those two talents lets you spam both RS and FS, while still having having RP for IBF and AMS when you need them. I found with that setup there's no more dead time in the rotation where you're waiting for rune cds or rp regen.
DnD + Howling Blast (glyphed) + BB spam should negate the need for a the reduced DnD cd from Morbidity for AoE pulls (or does for me at least). Blood needs reduced cd on DnD, but not Frost.
I do agree that you can drop points in Killing Machine to get those talents, though. It's still useful even at 3/5.
I also prefer Hungering Cold (glyphed) to Death Chill. I used to use Death Chill, I'd hit a pack of mobs w/ a Death Chilled HB for even more frontloaded aoe threat. Then I tried Lichborne, and found it helpful on some fights like Paletress, but unfortunately not Onyxia since she fears so often that a single 2m cd won't help. Finally tried HC (glyphed) and liked its short cd and really nice AoE snare, very useful in oh-shit situations where taunt and DG are on cd and the heals or dps has aggro'd something. But try em all, figure it out for yourself.
