What has changed

Why play Frost Death Knight?

  • Frost can spec into a couple of unique talent builds which have very different playstyles and damage profiles. One mainly oriented around Single and 2 target cleave, and the other based around consistent AOE cleave and Single Target throughput
  • Death Knights generally have very strong add control/utility options
  • They have very unique ways of dealing with mechanics, allowing them to completely ignore some with abilities such as Icebound FortitudeAnti-Magic ShellLichborne & Death’s Advance
  • Death Knights are also one of the tankiest DPS classes due to the amount of defensives they can use, as well as their self-healing capabilities with Death Strike
