Fresh 90 Frost DK (Need some opinions)

Recommended Posts

Avenger's Trillium Legplates or Greaves of Cyclopean Dread


Wondering if it's worth making the crafted pants on a fresh 90, or just wait for luck from the Celestials and make Avenger's Trillium Waistplate instead. Any recommendations from experienced players? Looking to carry my weight in DPS so I can slip into Flex for fun. Thanks guys!

Well, personally i'd prefer to craft the belt and wait for tier legs, espesially since the 2-set is really strong. Ofc with terrible rng, u could be waiting for weeks to get the legs off celestrials, so the crafted legs would be valuable in that case. On another note, both belt and legs can also come from Ordos(Give u got the leg cloak on ur account) which could give u either. With really sucky luck u could craft either legs or belt and then later get that exaxt spot from Ordos.


It all comes down to what u wanna go for urself, personally i'd got with belt and hope for legs from celestrials or even ordos for that matter.


In terms of dps, the belt is really good for 2hander as frost, and decent for dual wield, while the legs have the best stats for dual wield(mastery and crit).

Basically what Horcored said. If you're trying to raid with this fresh DK then it's all about whatever is going to get you up to 496 for lfr, 520 for flex, etc. Whatever your raiding goal is you want to get the min ilvl for someone to take you along in their group as quickly as possible.


Ordos does drop a belt, and there's also the possibility of getting a 522 pvp belt off celestials, but overall you're probably better off crafting the belt and waiting for legs to drop.


Also don't forget that Nalak and Oondasta loot are still a good upgrades for gearing up, or you could even go to openraid and find a normal ToT run. Zagam pretty much helped me gear up a fresh 90 horde DK to 535ish ilvl in 1 day by running Heroic ToT and Flex.

It depends on if you are 2h or dw, which pants you want.  Also on a fresh 90 its probably going to be a while before you get access to 553 t16.


Tell that to my friend who got tierlegs from celestials at lvl50 :P

      Does anyone have issue where a ton of versatility gear is dropping?
      In the effort to increase my item level, so I can do heroics (i know I'm late to the game), all the higher level gear that drops has versatility, do BM hunters need versatility now or is this just bad luck?

      Hi, Im having shoulders with 925 ilevel, mastery and verstality, but also I do have shoulders 915 ilevel, haste and avoidance.

      Whats better, lower item level but with best stats (haste/avoidance), or higher item level but with mastery and versa ?? 

      In overall, is it better to aim for "best" stats or just push item level first?

      So, I'm currently maining Blood DK and that's the spec that I've gotten my 4 legends on. I do occasionally use UH and was wondering which of my legends would be most effective for it. Just a foreword, all of the gear that the legends replace is about equal; all 915-920 and don't cause any major stat changes so its not like using one legend over another causes me to use a bad piece. I have Soul of the Deathlord, which is the one I use most on UH, and I have  Shackles of Bryndaor, Archimonde's Hatred Reborn, and Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus. Does the Shackles passive work on UH, if so, could that be a better boost for Val'kyr[Dark Arbiter Talent] (b/c you can cycle more RP)? Other than that I'm just wondering which out weighs the other, STR or the secondaries?
      Edit: and just in case it makes a difference, my talent build is; http://www.wowhead.com/talent-calc/death-knight/unholy/c75z

      I figured I'd do a Part 2 of this since I've managed to move from having never tanked before to now I can't get enough of it. 
      I've noticed a few things and wanted as much input as I can get. What has struck me so far is the lack of healers running PUGs at the lvl 60-ish area. It takes forever to get a PUG group together and I haven't been able to keep a healer with us more than 1 run through. I've made some DPS friends through PUGs which is pretty cool, but what is up with the healers???
      The second thing is how my damage relates to a few other classes at about the same level. I'm currently lvl 67. I'm able to hold aggro nearly most of the time. I have some PUG members than have a pet with taunt or something but for the most part I am good to go. What I will see are Death Knights and some Warlock/Mages that seem to be doing crazy damage while only being a level or 2 higher than I am. Is that normal or am I undergeared? I haven't quite downloaded a damage meter just yet but from watching the health bar on the enemies I've noticed that those 2 can do some big damage by themselves! So is it a gear issue with me, is it just the nature of their class at that level or are they over-geared with extra goodies figuring their main has helped pay for their current state of their equipment? And with that, any recommendations or just hang in there until I get much higher level when better equipment appears? I have Heirloom for my chest, back, shoulders, weapon and trinkets. I haven't really found any quest gear or dungeon drops that is better that what I have now.
      I can't say Thank You enough to everybody that posted advice and encouragement in my first thread. It was very helpful and I've taken a lot of it to heart and put it to work. I have had so much fun doing this...as like most things in life you are leery of...once you try it you only regret NOT doing it sooner.
