Hi i´ve been thinking about a new build for dk frost in arenas, this build will be centered in obliterate´s damage, couse as you should know frost damage has been nerfed, reducing our mastery in pvp a 75%.

at tier 1 we´ll take morderous Efficiency, talent which will give us more runes to spam obliterate as many times al possible.

With the same logic at tier 2 the best option is Horn of winter which give us 2 runes and 20 runic power every 30 secons when used.

At tier 3 our best option is Hungering runes, an ability that give  us 1 rune and 5 runic  power every 1.5 seconds for 15 seconds.

At tier 4 Abomination´s might talent makes our critical obliterates to have a 20% possibilitie to reduce enemys player movement speed for 5 secs. We will  take this one becouse is a good  combo with obliteration, the lvl 100 talent. 

At tier 5  is compleatly free and depends form  enemy´s mobility

Tier´s 6 best  option is runic atenuation, talent that will give us more runic power which we can spend by death strike or frost strike.

Obviusly at lvl 100 we´ll take obliteration, a talent that for 8 seconds frost strike will triger killing maschine  giving us a 100% crit chance for obliterate, and making obliterate ncost one  less rune during this time.

Obliteration shuld be used with hungering rune, pillar of frost and icebound  fortitude  to evite every stun during Obliteration.

this is only an idea that  has to be proved

well its certainly nice to see someone contributing pvp type stuff, we don't see alot of that here. one thing though now in legion you'll want to include the honor talents as well, as many of those can have huge influence on which base line talent you take. so just per example, unholy has a beautiful bg slime death talent set up using honor talents that requires the base talents to change, the same with its honor talent single target (arena) build. 

so for your setup here, which honor talents do you like?

      I usually sim my characters to get the best possible results. I enjoy the process quite a lot and since I reached 120, I wanted to find out the best build of the spec. (Note, I didn't want to find out what to play, but rather how my own build fares in comarison.) I rarely mind a 1-2% difference. If it goes above 2%, I really mind a change. What this thread is about is mainly to bring something in the attention of those who help making the class guides, especially the talent choices. To my surprise, I was awed to find out that certain talents outperform previous "Standard" choices in the endgame, probably due to the stat squish.

      The Frost go-to build (top dps) would probably be along the lines of <Icy Talons / Cold Heart - Runic Attenuation - Frozen Pulse - Gathering Storm - Breath of Sindragosa>. What I found out primarily was that after the removal of legendaries, Cold Heart severely underperforms at most given situations resulting in a major dps drop due to the low mastery. Gathering Storm also suffers from the same problem and most of the times, Frostwyrm's Fury is better overall. The biggest surprise of them all, however, was that Inexorable Assault overperforms quite a lot, and is the first reason why I made the topic. I then started simming with the above in mind and I came across a build that some would not consider on par with top dog builds around the meta, which is the use of Horn of Winter which overperforms both its other two options when using the Breath build. Talent Sim can be seen here. Another intresting thing, which I loved, was that the 2nd best build uses Obliteration as a lvl 100 talent and no other build surpassed it (Other than the first one, obviously). So, I encourage frost players out there to give their other, less common talents a try. To the class guide author(s), I believe that the two "underdog" talents will earn their spot in the class guides.

      Thank you for your time reading this.

      I'm not entirely sure what I am doing wrong that is getting me this result, but I am getting about a 30k dps difference on training dummy when I use a defile, clawing shadows, shadow infusion build than when I use the recommended talents. I left the rest of my talents unchanged and I have yet to see where the dps difference is coming from (arbiter or clawing shadows), but I'm very confused as to how this could happen.

      Defile damage breakdown, Arbiter damage breakdown
      I felt like I had a harder time keeping my disease up and using coldheart on cooldown (or rather whenever at max stacks) with the arbiter build. Am I missing some key thing or do I just need to git gud? Thanks in advance for any help.

      Hello all! I figured i'd make this thread to get some up to date information on the AOE rotation for unholy.  Currently i'm 935 ilvl, and I run Incstructor's fourth lesson and Soul. (For lack of a better option.) However it is my understanding that these two legendaries make for the strongest aoe rotation. Is this true?

       That is my first question. My second is what is the priority for aoe when running these two. Is it to wait for defile to drop, then festering wound a target a couple times, then Scourge Strike? Or is the priority to just put Wounds on then pop them asap, dropping the defile whenever it's available. Typically I wait for defile before I start building Wounds, but given the soul and the extra talent, i suspect it's better to just aoe without Defile if it's unavailable or perhaps just better to rarely spend runes on defile? Curious as to your thoughts!

      So I just got my Rogue to 110 on Monday and plan on raiding soon. But  I am a bit unhappy about Vigor not being an option. Every guide I found put the other two talents above it. I really like playing with Vigor, this might just be because my gear is still kinda bad and messed up(850ish), but it feels a lot smoother with Vigor.
      So I wanted to know why excactly the other two are better and by how much.

      Hi, This is about Ice Veins Demonology 100 talent discussion. I'm greatly confused about this, since I can't see any synergy between Ascendance and Soul Conduit. If anyone could clarify this. I've already thought about it having something to do with summons. But it has to do with DE so yeah. Simply can't see the synergy with theese two together.
      Copied right from the 100 talent discussion from Icy Veins:
       Soul Conduit is the best option for single target and light cleave and should be your go-to for most encounters. This talent is only worthwhile if using  Thal'kiel's Ascendance.
