​Hi Guys

 

After reading around I seem to be getting very similar, ambiguous information regarding frost viability in pvp.

 

I understand that unholy is the go-to spec atm as it provides good dps and good utility but is frost really 'unplayable'? I really enjoy frost and also feel I play it better compared to unholy.

 

Please also bear in mind that I do not play around the 2.4k plus bracket and only play around 2k.

 

Any information shedding light on the topic would be helpful.

 

Thanks

So what is it about frost that makes people label it 'unplayable' ?

for me, UH is simply better all around. an on-demand CC (asphyxiate & gnaw), extra survival CD (corpse shield), 15% aoe dmg reduction (good vs DH dmg) and NECROTIC strike pressure.

 

frost lost a lot of pressure vs healers without auto-crit frost strikes, icy touch purges and necrotic strikes. they are also still very squishy, esp vs melee cleaves (which is predominant atm).

 

play what you like in the end. i loved frost, but after playing UH for a few weeks. it seems pretty fun with the festering wounds gameplay. ie. necro vs ss depending on the situation.
