[Frost] Necrotic Plague Stat Priority

So, recently, I've been thinking about rolling with Necrotic Plague in one way or another since I despise Plague Leech. I stumbled upon Demonardvark's "Necroblight" playstyle for Unholy. However, after testing Unholy out, it's definitely not my playstyle.

 

Then I thought of a Dual-Wielding Frost Death Knight with Necrotic Plague (since they are known for spamming Howling Blast, which will apply one stack of the Plague), and Blizzard is buffing the Plague for 6.1.

 

However, I'm a bit confused as to which stats I should go after:

 

Mastery increases all Frost-type damages, which Frost has plenty of, including Necrotic Plague. Though, it seems like you need a ton of Mastery to gain any substantial benefits from it. How is it ranked compared to Multistrike?

 

Haste would allow for more Killing Spree procs since Frost gains so much Haste. and "Might of the Frozen Wastes" causes Main-Hand attacks to trigger an Off-Hand attack as well. And let's not forget the Rune regeneration rate. More Runes = more Howling Blasts = more stacks of the Plague.

 

From my point of view, if running Dual-Wield Frost, Haste would overtake Mastery in priority if Necrotic Plague is chosen, correct? Or should I swap out Multistrike for Mastery? (Haste > Multistrike > Mastery, or Haste > Mastery > Multistrike?)

 

Also, which Runeforges should I go with? Razorice? Fallen Crusader? A mix of the two?

I can't answer the rest of your questions. But if Necrotic Plague counts as frost damage for frost DKs, then go with Rune of Fallen Crusader on your main hand, and Rune of Razorice on your off-hand. You should never use 2x Fallen Crusader or 2x Razorice as it's suboptimal. 2x Fallen Crusader, whilst giving you a higher uptime on the strength buff, is still a DPS loss over use 1x FC and 1x Razorice, as razorice increases frost damage taken by the target inflicted with the debuff. And using 2x razorice is just stupid.

I would say mastery>haste>Multistrike>everything else for dual wield. Multistrike is valuable for unholy for the extra ticks however, multistrike is already one of our main priorities. With necrosis we get multistrike bonus and everytime we multistrike we do extra extra damage. For frost 1h mastery is your big stat is your mastery so you don't want to pass on that.

Still runeforge the same way with fallen and razor ice. 

 

I would HIGHLY recommend for you to take unholy blight as your tier 1 talent as well. With the way 1h frost works you will be able to build stacks much faster than 2h frost will so you can maximize your necrotic damage but no matter what you do IT WILL fall off. So, having unholy blight means every 1 min you will get a full 15 stack that lasts 30 seconds. So, you basically have 50% of your time guaranteed full stacks and the other 50% you will probably be able to keep high to max stack counts as well.

Actually, it's:

 

Haste (until cap, ~1k) > Mastery > Multistrike

 

That's pretty much it. You want to cap Haste and then go with Master and Multistrike.

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.

      Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.

      Hi
      I have been waiting on Blizzard to respond to this problem for nigh on 3 mths. Still no response but hopefully someone can help here. I have a frost death knight...Ellipsîs on Khaz'goroth. She has lost rune forging, no its not in general spells and its not in specifics nor abilities. I would dearly like it back so I can play her. I have levelled her to 110 without but it would be nice to finish her off.
      I have unloaded the game and reloaded it, I have turned all addons off and deleted them as well. I have deleted cache and the wtf file. I have done everything that would normally fix things but still no rune forging. I even made a macro, but that didn't do anything either it has just disappearred. I have read forums EU ones and they say they have reported it to a GM and they fixed it straight away. Unfortunately still waiting for a GM. Does anyone have an answer?
      I have played for the last 9 years and to tell the truth this is the first time anything (except guilds dissolving around me) has annoyed me enough to post. last thing I play on and iMac Pro - and no that is not the reason I can't rune forge.
      HELPPPPPP!!!!

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
