Obliteration Raid Talents

The main choice you need to make as a Frost Death Knight is whether or not you are playing Breath of Sindragosa Icon Breath of Sindragosa or Obliteration Icon Obliteration. Both builds are competitive on pretty much every single boss (both in top 10 DPS) so it is down to personal preference what you play. I will recommend one Breath of Sindragosa Icon Breath of Sindragosa build and one Obliteration Icon Obliteration build for each boss.

Some other choices involve picking up Abomination Limb Icon Abomination Limb for both builds, or Frostwhelp's Aid Icon Frostwhelp's Aid for Breath of Sindragosa Icon Breath of Sindragosa.

  • Obliteration: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAcgIAIhkEJiERISSIkIJRkAIhkERSSSSKJBAAAAAAAAAAAA
3.2.

Tips

  • Wings of Extinction Icon Wings of Extinction DoT can be immuned by pre-using Anti-Magic Shell Icon Anti-Magic Shell.
  • You can use Anti-Magic Zone Icon Anti-Magic Zone when Wings of Extinction Icon Wings of Extinction comes in to help mitigate the damage and to generate Runic Power.
  • Rays of Anguish Icon Rays of Anguish is a relatively dangerous mechanic; make sure to use defensives if you do get targeted.

For more information, please refer to our Kazzara guide.

4.

The Amalgamation Chamber

4.1.

Talents

A tricky fight for Frost to execute well due to the heavy movement. Still, the default builds works best!

4.1.1.

Suggested Talent Builds

  • Breath: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAkIAIikEJiERISSIkIJRECIRkIJJJJJplAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  • Obliteration: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAcgIAIhkEJiERISSIkIJRkAIhkERSSSSKJBAAAAAAAAAAAA
4.2.

Tips

  • Fiery Meteor Icon Fiery Meteor is a great opportunity to leverage Anti-Magic Zone Icon Anti-Magic Zone to help mitigate the damage.
  • Blazing Heat/ Corrupting Shadow Icon Corrupting Shadow leaves a DoT when cleared. You can use Anti-Magic Shell Icon Anti-Magic Shell to avoid this DoT and help your healers manage.

For more information, please refer to our Amalgamation Chamber guide.

5.

The Forgotten Experiments

5.1.

Talents

This fight is primarily a Single Target fight on Heroic and easier difficulties. For Mythic, we do get extended periods of two-target cleave. The default builds fits well into both scenarios since they do really well on both Single Target and two-target cleave!

5.1.1.

Suggested Talent Builds

  • Breath: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAkIAIikEJiERISSIkIJRECIRkIJJJJJplAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  • Obliteration: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAcgIAIhkEJiERISSIkIJRkAIhkERSSSSKJBAAAAAAAAAAAA
5.2.

Tips

  • Use Death and Decay Icon Death and Decay to help cleave the Erratic Remnant adds.
  • Use Death and Decay Icon Death and Decay to increase your cleave when you fight two bosses on Mythic.
  • Leverage Anti-Magic Shell Icon Anti-Magic Shell aggressively to generate Runic Power.

For more information, please refer to our Forgotten Experiments guide.

6.

Assault of the Zaqali

6.1.

Talents

This fight consists of periods of pure Single Target with intermittent heavy add cleave. We opt to pick up Absolute Zero Icon Absolute Zero in both builds to provide beter burst add cleave. Furthermore, Abomination Limb Icon Abomination Limb has good value when grouping up adds and Frostwhelp's Aid Icon Frostwhelp's Aid is good for Breath..

6.1.1.

Suggested Talent Build

  • Breath: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAkIAISSCJiERISSIkIJRECIEJJJJJJJplAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  • Obliteration: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAICASkkQiIREikECJSSEJkgcASSEJJJJpkEAAAAAAAAAAAAA
6.2.

Tips

  • Use Frostwyrm's Fury Icon Frostwyrm's Furys on as many adds as possible.
  • Use Anti-Magic Shell Icon Anti-Magic Shell to help mitigate the damage from the fire circles that spawn around everyone in the final phase.

For more information, please refer to our Assault of the Zaqali guide.

Rashok, the Elder

A pure single target encounter where the default raid builds are best.

7.1.

Talents

7.1.1.

Suggested Talent Build

  • Breath: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAkIAIikEJiERISSIkIJRECIRkIJJJJJplAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  • Obliteration: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAcgIAIhkEJiERISSIkIJRkAIhkERSSSSKJBAAAAAAAAAAAA
7.2.

Tips

  • Anti-Magic Zone Icon Anti-Magic Zone works well for the Charged Smash Icon Charged Smash soak.
  • Anti-Magic Shell Icon Anti-Magic Shell will be very useful in this fight due to the large amount of incoming magic damage. I recommend using it for the Searing Slam Icon Searing Slams.
  • For Mythic, use Anti-Magic Shell Icon Anti-Magic Shell at the start of each Charged Smash Icon Charged Smash cast. This will immune the healing absorb as well as the debuff that is applied from the smash itself. This is a large amount of prevented damage to the raid!

For more information, please refer to our Rashok the Elder guide.

8.

The Vigilant Steward, Zskarn

8.1.

Talents

Zskarn is primarily a Single Target encounter with some intermittent spread add cleave. I recommend the default raid builds again but with Abomination Limb Icon Abomination Limb picked up.

8.1.1.

Suggested Talent Builds

  • Breath: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAkIAISSCJiERISSIkIJRECIRkIJJJJJplAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  • Obliteration: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAcgIAIRSCJiERISSIkIJRkAIhkERSSSSKJBAAAAAAAAAAAA
8.2.

Tips

  • Use Chains of Ice Icon Chains of Ice, Death Grip Icon Death Grip and Abomination Limb Icon Abomination Limb to control the adds that spawn.
  • Make sure you have Death's Advance Icon Death's Advance for when heavy movement is required during the big Breaths.
  • Anti-Magic Shell Icon Anti-Magic Shell can be used to immune the DoT from Blast Wave Icon Blast Wave. Furthermore, Death's Advance Icon Death's Advance can immune the knockback and Anti-Magic Zone Icon Anti-Magic Zone is solid for helping the raid to mitigate the damage.

For more information, please refer to our Zskarn guide.

10.

Echo of Neltharion

10.1.

Talents

Primarily Single Target but with some opportunity for 2-target cleave. The final phase has big AoE burst, making Frostwyrm's Fury Icon Frostwyrm's Fury gain value. I recommend it for both builds.

  • Breath: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAkIAIikEJiERISSIkIJREigERikkkkkkWOAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

For more information, please refer to our Neltharion guide.

Scalecommander Sarkareth

  • Obliteration: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAcgIAIhkEJiERISSIkIJRkAIhkERSSSSKJBAAAAAAAAAAAA
