About Our Reviewer

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Tegu, one of the best DPS Death Knights in the world, who raids in Serenity. You can follow him on Twitter, and you can watch his stream on Twitch.

1. Preface

Given the dynamic stat priority for Frost Death Knights, you should add to the stat that is most desirable to you given your stat level. That said, this will mostly be either Critical Strike (until 30%) and then Haste (until 20%).

2. Gems

You should use Saber's Eye of Strength Icon Saber's Eye of Strength in one socket, and Deadly Eye of Prophecy Icon Deadly Eye of Prophecy in all other sockets.

If you have 30% Critical Strike, you should use Quick Dawnlight Icon Quick Dawnlights to improve your Haste.

3. Enchants

Slot Enchantment
Neck
Back
Rings
Main-hand Weapon Rune of Razorice Icon Rune of Razorice
Off-hand Weapon Rune of the Fallen Crusader Icon Rune of the Fallen Crusader

4. Consumables

Flask of the Countless Armies Icon Flask of the Countless Armies should be used for raids along with Potion of Deadly Grace Icon Potion of Deadly Grace/Potion of the Old War Icon Potion of the Old War (equal in terms of DPS) as your potion of choice. You should eat The Hungry Magister Icon The Hungry Magister for the Critical Strike buff (or Leybeque Ribs Icon Leybeque Ribs, if you cannot afford the +375 food) or Azshari Salad Icon Azshari Salad for the Haste buff (or Suramar Surf and Turf Icon Suramar Surf and Turf, if you cannot afford the +375 food), depending on what you need between Critical Strike and Haste. Ancient Healing Potion Icon Ancient Healing Potion can be used in place of Healthstones.

If you can afford it, you should also use the Legion augment rune: Defiled Augment Rune Icon Defiled Augment Rune.
