#4062419 Frost/Unholy 5.4.7 guide

Posted sarma on 23 February 2014 - 01:45 PM

DK frost guide (6.2) Dual wield

PvP Talents

Posted Image

Those are talents that I use as default in arena.

Level 15:
Plague leech is mandatory for frost. Refreshes 2 runes on demand shortens waiting time for swaps.

Level 30
Lichborne for both specs is most viable option as it provides fear break ,polymorph/sleep immunity. Amz is 3 sec duration with 20% reduction for quite some time making this talent totally useless in pvp ,
purgeatory on the other hand is something you can pick in case you end up meeting team that doesnt have warlock,warrior,shaman,mage,hunter or priest

Level 45
Aspxyxiate is mandatory talent , even it comps like tsg or smokecleave.

Level 60

Blood tap (no rng)

Level 75

death siphon is best option , provides best hps. Vs burstdown teams such as thug you can consider using pact instead

Level 90
Desecrated ground - Extra pvp trinket and best option in this tier

Gorefiend has usage in 5v5 and rbgs but for 2v2 and 3v3 its just not good enough

Remorseless winter is a pve ability and it has no use in arena games but
you can sometimes pick chillblains + remorseless winter as 5.4 strangulate is no longer on global cooldown so using strangulate+remorseless at same time on a shaman , priest or paladin healer will guarantee that rw stun will go off as they cant dispell/freedom stacks while they are silenced. Yet again if those healers are paired with enhancemet shaman , hunter , ww monk , or ret they can freedom their healers every time you silence+rw them making your RW useless.Also if mentioned healer is dwarf (most of them are nowdays) this combo doesnt work at all

Level 100
Necrotic plague - sindragosa is single target dps loss as from 6.2 froststike value for dw is much greater then it was before also it provides a bit more sustained dps output

You can pick defile if you are worried about your plague randomly breaking cc when you are playing smoke or any other comp with breakable cc


Prime Glyphs:

Frost :

Shifting presences - mandatory rp has great value for dw
Dark simulacrum - mandatory unless you meet mw/war/hunter for example
Runic power - mandatory since it provides enormous dps increasment
Icy touch - Good , but if you already have purge in your team consider using something else instead (dps loss)

Minor glyph :

-Glyph of resilient grip - mandatory

Enchants / Stats
General Priorities for Stats :

Frost :
Mastery > versatility > haste > ms > crit

Viable DK Comps
Dks are in pretty bad shape in mop and even worse in wod but you can still reach high ratings.
I recomed  tsg , smokecleave or shadowcleave

What rotation do you use in PvP?
There is no "specific" rotation in PvP. Have your rp on high levels while having atleast 4+ runes ready when you are bursting down kill target.


I recomend getting magic runes but you can use this script if you dislike addons

/script RuneFrame:SetScale(2.0)
/run RuneFrame:SetPoint("top", 0, -325)

change values to move it where you want

-gladius or s arena or move anything to move your arena frames

Matchups comps and strats :

Tsg -

Defensive play : most important thing is to not overlap defensive cds with your healer or use them for nothing.Also make sure that you do not overextend too much and make your healer life impossible by doing so.

Have in mind that dmg from other team (even with strongest of strongest of cooldowns up means nothing if your healer is free to do his thing) Blood presence should keep you safe in those moments , and if your healer gets cc/locked you should consider using a cd on 70% + hp preferably

Offensive play - everytime you do grip>aspyx on enemy healer you need to force something big out of other team

Have high rp + atleast 4+ runes ready wait for km proc ,make sure your arms warrior is ready to burst (charge>cs ready) grip aspyx into dr stun (this should force big cds from other team all the time or you are doing something really really wrong)
Your monk should always incap target that can peel or offheal at this time

Rinse and repeat untill you win

Have in mind that dmg from your team (even with strongest of strongest of cooldowns up means nothing if enemy healer is free to do his thing) Kills should always happen during lockouts or if someone overextends with his pvp trinket on cd he can get hardswaped and die in 1 stun

Smokecleave :

Defensive play : most important thing is to not overlap defensive cds with your healer or use them for nothing.Also make sure that you do not overextend too much and make your healer life impossible by doing so.

Have in mind that dmg from other team (even with strongest of strongest of cooldowns up means nothing if your healer is free to do his thing) Blood presence should keep you safe in those moments , and if your healer gets cc/locked you should consider using a cd on 70% + hp preferably

Unlike tsg you can use your grip defensivly in smokecleave stopping that crucial deep>poly or else.

Offensive play :
- openers usually happen on healer and if you are doing your thing correctly you should force quite alot from enemy team from just opening
- Cross cc 1 target while you are bursting down so your rogue is free to do his thing , always follow up saps with your stuns > blind
- Before kidneys make sure you are on high rp and have atleast 4 runes ready , having km proc is a bonus.

Have in mind that dmg from your team (even with strongest of strongest of cooldowns up means nothing if enemy healer is free to do his thing) Kills should always happen during lockouts or in smokebomb if dps is without a trinket and no defensives he can use in stuns

looks like az or northern cali
After careful digital analysis of the submitted images, this seems correct; I am only a layman, but I believe the species to be a northern or loggerhead shrike. This species of bird's yearlong range clearly covers Arizona and much of the coast of NorCal.

Additionally, I have spoken with Glinks at length in Skype and during one of the conversations he told me that he lived in Arizona, so this is consistent with my suspicions

World of warcraft 2 with a hyge upgrade to everything, new graphics, new mechanics, different classes, new lore, etc. would be best.

nmp fat, ugly, stupid

jah skinnyfat, ugly, stupid

it's like watching two retarded children fight

We all known Jah is just Jah but it saddens me to see NMP do this shit because he is just a stereotypical American fat nigger who kissed arse to make a tiny bit of money, then proceeds to brag about said tiny bit of money he made, even though it was through someone else.

Ionno. If NMP is making good money doing what he's doing I think that's legit as fuck. Assuming NMP manages all of his friend's shit (a friend who happens to make decent money online) I don't think it's fair to say he's an ass kisser. I don't watch Sodapoppin's stream but I'm pretty sure NMP and Soda were friends before Soda blew up so it's not like NMP just ran towards the money and offered his asshole to be employed by Soda. If you want to see REAL ass kissing, watch Hotted suck the cum out of Swifty's diddle. I know how Hotted originally met Swifty and I don't care to explain the entire ordeal, but you can sense the awkward tension between Hotted and Swifty; it's pretty obvious Hotted isn't 100% comfortable around Swifty but Hotted puts up with it just to get his name out there. I still believe Hotted isn't a geniuine friend and just takes Swifty's kindness for granted, just watch some of the IRL videos of Hotted and Swifty together. I mean, at least with NMP and Soda they look natural.

I just hope NMP is doing other shit than managing Soda's life. I'm not a CPA or a CFO, but it's obvious you can't do what you do forever.
Better have 24s on that cadi too or you're doin it wrong

#3885653 WoW down to 8.3 million subscribers

Posted Affect on 09 May 2013 - 07:56 AM

I think it's to be expected. The people that "grew up" on WoW are getting older and are either going to more casual games or stopping completely. These later generations are tuned more towards console games or MOBAS. Not to mention there is no competitive scene in WoW. It's amazing how many people can get pulled towards a game that has 100s of thousands of dollars in prize pools.

Honestly, I believe streamers have caused some of this. Due to the amount of variety in streamers it's very easy to watch them and ultimately have them play for you. This isn't a diss to any of the streamers at all, it's actually quite impressive what some of those streamers have come up with and/or have going for them.

WoW is without a doubt a dying game. A very slow dying game, but one nonetheless. However, you can't knock them having such a successful life span. It is still ultimately the smoothest running MMO out there. I am quite sure they are happy with how well and for how long their game has stayed popular. I don't think it's even their fault. Yea the game has problems, as does any game. I believe it's just MMO's in general that is a dying breed.

The game itself is just old, yet still has almost complete control in the MMO market. So kudos to them. With that being said I don't believe they'll ever see an increase in subscribers. Maybe a few short spike resubs, but I don't ever foresee them going over 10m ever again.

My current main is DK and it's fine stop bitching. Just been playing 3s and my pressure even being undergeared seemed more than fine on healers i don't see your problem. It's a heavy nerf to a ability which should have never been in the game what is your problem?

Damage is still sick stop moaning. Ye it's a rough nerf but atleast DKs can still play arena.

Obviously u've no clue about dks. Our unholy damage is spread by diseases in aoe, max crit u can get as unholy is 40k w/ festering strike with procs/trinkets. Without necrotic we will make 0 pressure and any healer would heal it with the face.

lol @ these dk's crying...

on live atm I constantly run around with 150k+ necrotics, it needed a nerf.

Maybe it did +150k with 4 death runes+2 from blood tap w/ proc trinkets, maybe do u know how a dk gets death runes? Then stfu

E/ This change was NOT NEEDED and blizzard will go down because they doesnt know what they did at the moment
