Just logged on the PTR to check if they made the cast immune to interrupts. It's still possible to interrupt Hungering Cold to lock out frost abilities, and I also realized death knights can no longer cast Hungering Cold while moving.

The spec is probably dead if it goes live like this.

It will surely be hard. I mean really hard. Before you could just grip and hungering cold. Now you have to like grip, chains and hungering cold. I call this bullshit. Or even coordinate with your pally to stun the target and THEN cast hungering cold. Frost DK skillcap just raised to a level nobody except Koreans can reach, good bye spec.

Shattering Throw cannot be interrupted by Counterspell, Pummel, Wind Shear, Rebuke, Kick, etc., and interrupting it does not lock out warrior abilities.

But you guys need to calm down. I don't think I even complained in my original post. I was just stating facts.

Yeah, it's an actual cast. Locking it out locks out Frost Strike, Howling Blast, Chains of Ice, Icy Touch and Hungering Cold.

Then again, if it wasn't possible to interrupt, the change would basically be irrelevant because a death knight could Death Grip and start the Hungering Cold cast while the Death Gripped target is in the air, which is basically the same effect as what we have today.

Really, this whole cast idea is just clunky and weird. I want the spec to be nerfed, but Blizzard needs to think of something else.

What kind of awful team wouldn't be able to interrupt this on a stationary target?

I mean, three out of four healers alone will be able to get out of it by themselves: Priests will Shadow Word: Death or Psychic Scream it, paladins will Rebuke or Hammer of Justice it, and shamans will Wind Shear it. The only healer that won't be able to do anything is druids.

Correct me if I am wrong, but couldn't a druid skull bash it? Unless skull bash has a minimum range.

Edit: beat me to it lol

Well, the other thing I considered when leaving it out is Skull Bash can't be used while rooted.

But if you guys really want to leave it in, you're just strengthening my argument. The point is that frost death knights are basically losing the one ability that makes up for losing all of unholy's utility.

As if hungering cold is a fair ability. Just remove it.

I also think it's a pretty cheesy ability. But if Blizzard wants to keep the spec viable in PVP, frost will need some pretty serious compensation in the event Hungering Cold is directly or indirectly removed for PVP. That's all I'm saying.

I would have preferred if they just made the ability a single-target CC with a 1.5 minute cooldown.
