Hey guys i am pretty new to Death Knight and I can't seem to keep up in damage. My Soul Reaper is hitting like a wet noodle. I know there isn't rotations in PvP making it all situational but what do you guys do to be able to put out insane damage?

Second I am planning on playing Walking dead comp since I only have access to a WW monk at this time, What would be the right way to play it as a DK P.O.V do we sit healers or make constant swaps or what should I be doing?


I seem to have issue surviving in 2's playing WW/DK I know i am not good at all being a player who plays nothing but healers (trying something new) But I use Death Siphon/Death Strike when I am able to and Blood Pressence everything i can to survive but i just go down. Any advice from veteran Death knights would be greatly appreciated.

1 Last thing. What does higher rated DK do that 1500 Death knights don't do like is there something i should be doing, reason i ask this question is cause i want to become a better player all around rather then just play healer and please forgive me for the dumb questions I could use all the help i can get. Thank you :)

Assuming you're playing Dual Wield Frost: Icy touch with your frost&death runes, Frost Strike is your main damage source. Howling Blast is generally speaking not that good of an ability unless you can get a lot of cleave damage out (so when people are stacked up).

WW/DK is pretty good in 2v2, you mainly just play extremely defensive whenever you don't have any cooldowns and you just try to kill people with a leg sweep > fists of fury > strangulate combo.

The easiest way to win games on lower rating in 2s when you're vs let's say healer/dps is to just hit the dps, then grip the healer into leg sweep into fists into strangulate while you pop all cds. If they live, they'll probably need all of their defensives anyway so you can just run away and do it again in 1 minute.

It works the same in 3v3 as far as I know, just that you can also decide to just turret damage into a squishy dps rather than switching on the healer (though I'm sure Leg Sweep > Strangulate kills pretty much anything that isn't a holy paladin).

PS: Blood Presence is a last-resort kind of thing for Dual Wield Frost. You really want to be in Frost Presence as much as possible. Make good use of that 20 second duration on Pillar of Frost and pump some ridiculous Death Siphons and Death Strikes to stay high on health.

1) Spam Howling Blast + Frost Strike for maximum damage. (since Howling Blast does like 8 times more dmg than Icy Touch)
2) Death Strike + Death Siphon + Frost Strike when you are in trouble.
3) Use Icy Touch only when you want to purge.
4) Use Obliterate only when your target has Cloak of Shadows, or Diffuse Magic on them.

If you're spamming howling blast you're playing DW Frost wrong.

Obviously you haven't played DW frost at all this season (understandable the game sucks). Log in, check again, get your facts straight, come back say sorry. ;)

I'm not going to bother explaining to some random retard why spamming howling blast is terrible. I sincerely hope OP will not take your advice because it's only going to make him play worse which is the complete opposite of what he wants to achieve with this thread.

at low ratings you should just go after healers and learn the comp and what you can do as it. Theres nothing we can say that will suddenly make you understand the comp fully or how to play your class in the comp. Just spam queue all day and you'll learn. And when you face a team where going healer doesnt work you test something else.
