I don't know, I feel like frost may end up being better in every single comp unless you're running with an afflic lock. I can't think of a solid reason to be unholy otherwise.

You DO have to. You dont see destruction warlocks in arena anymore. This could be the same.


No you don't. I play frost since the beginning of the season, it is and was great all the time, it's personal preference and comp choice only. Destruction is a dead pvp spec, while frost is just different than unholy, not worse (and vice versa obviously). Play what you like and can actually cope with, at least thats my opinion.
On topic: this patch might equalize both, maybe bring frost out on top of unholy. Looking forward to it.

It's not ebola cleave unless you're unholy. I have run frost Dk feral priest all season and I like to call the comp Korean swap cleave cause you can get some insane swaps with the comp. Plus ebola cleave is a ghey name

Also want to say with these notes I doubt obliterate is going to be used much at all now.

So yeah, what do you guys think for frost? Switch all that haste to mastery with the HB and FS buffs? Or maybe just pick up master off-pieces? Maybe swap in the TB Mastery trinket?

It really didn't, for pve maybe but for pvp you get cc'd off, you dont keep up blood plague, and runic empowerment refreshes runes at a fast enough rate that you are never really gcd starved unless you're spamming obliterate which I didn't do really. I dont see the argument of where it actually lost out. Even tried it for a bit and didn't really care for it.

Even current frost damage is from like another world.

Do people use obliterate or NS? What you do with blood runes?

I think Frost will be very good next patch. Unholy for more sustained damage, Frost for big burst. However, I do still think Unholy wins out on the utility side, and I hope they come up with some unique Frost utility. Here's for hoping Pillar of Frost glyph gets changed. 10 second freedom please.

Frost Dk would probably want STR>Master>Haste, Overlap into desecration and seeing as blood=death, you can do 4 necro's outbreak, Pillar HB, Ton of frost strikes, and back to necro's. Should be able to do the same amount of necro's as unholy after the change off Emp rune weapon.
