The stat priority for a Frost Death Knight depends based on whether you choose the Dual-Wielding or the Two-Handed playstyle.

Stat priority for Dual-Wielding playstyle:

  1. Strength;
  2. Mastery;
  3. Multistrike = Haste;
  4. Versatility;
  5. Critical Strike.

Stat priority for Two-Handed playstyle:

  1. Strength;
  2. Haste;
  3. Multistrike;
  4. Versatility;
  5. Mastery;

These statistics have been obtained by combining common sense, in-game testing, and simulations using Simulation Craft.

2. Getting a Better Understanding

2.1. Statistics Priority

Strength is your primary statistic. You should look for it in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Attack Power, which determines the damage your abilities do.

Haste increases the amount of procs of Killing Machine Icon Killing Machine, your attack speed, and your rune regeneration rate.

Critical Strike increases your chance to critically hit with all spells and abilities.

Mastery, through Mastery: Frozen Heart Icon Mastery: Frozen Heart, increases your Frost damage. Frost damage makes up a great part of your total damage.

Versatility increases all your damage and healing done, and decreases all damage taken.

Multistrike causes your abilities to have a chance to hit/heal a second and a third time, each time dealing 30% of the initial damage/heal.
