On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Frost Death Knight for each boss of the Battle of Dazar'alor raid. All our content is updated for World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1.

1. Introduction for Frost Death Knight Boss Advice in Battle of Dazar'alor

In this section you will find information pertaining to each boss individually in the Battle of Dazar'alor raid. It is recommended you follow the standard talent build found in the Builds, Talents, and Glyphs section of the guide unless otherwise advised, on a per boss basis. As each boss is hardest on its Mythic difficulty mode, we will first explain the strategy for Mythic, followed by a short explanation on what changes in this strategy, if anything, for Heroic.

2. Talent Cheatsheet

Champion of the Light Grong Jadefire Masters Opulence Conclave of the Chosen King Rastakhan High Tinker Mekkatorque Stormwall Blockade Lady Jaina Proudmoore

3. Champion of the Light

3.1. Suggested Talents for Frost Death Knights on Champion of the Light

3.2. Frost Death Knight Playstyle on Champion of the Light

For DPS on the add that you are required to switch to, you can use Cold Heart Icon Cold Heart or Frostwyrm's Fury Icon Frostwyrm's Fury on it. However, we recommend against using Breath of Sindragosa Icon Breath of Sindragosa, as you will not be able to get the most out of that ability on the adds. You can also use a Howling Blast Icon Howling Blast on the adds to apply Frost Fever Icon Frost Fever as it will occasionally generate 5 Runic Power.

4. Grong

Note: This boss is the second boss for Horde players, and the third boss for Alliance players. For the second Alliance boss (Jadefire Masters), see further below.

4.1. Suggested Talents for Frost Death Knight on Grong

4.2. Frost Death Knight Playstyle on Grong

For the Apetagonizer 3000, your end of Pillar of Frost Icon Pillar of Frost should line up with the first add, therefore Cold Heart Icon Cold Heart and Frostwyrm's Fury Icon Frostwyrm's Fury will both also line up with the first add. After the first add, Pillar of Frost will not line up smoothly with the add, so you should not save it unless your raid needs the extra add damage.

5. Jadefire Masters

5.1. Suggested Talents for Frost Death Knight on the Jadefire Masters

5.2. Frost Death Knight Playstyle on Jadefire Masters

Depending on your strategy, you should be attacking the boss that needs the most damage, which will usually be Grimfang/Mestrah unless Firecaller/Flamefist has Fire Shield Icon Fire Shield up, in which case you would work to pop the shield.

6. Opulence

6.1. Suggested Talents for Frost Death Knight on Opulence

6.2. Frost Death Knight Playstyle on Opulence

While killing the constructs make sure that you dodge the frontal cone when the construct telegraphs a ground smash.

7. Conclave of the Chosen

7.1. Suggested Talents for Frost Death Knight on Conclave of the Chosen

7.2. Frost Death Knight Playstyle on Conclave of the Chosen

AoE on this fight is fairly pointless. However, Frost Fever Icon Frost Fever does have a chance to generate Runic Power, so we recommend you apply Frost Fever when you can.

8. King Rastakhan

8.1. Suggested Talents for Frost Death Knight on King Rastakhan

8.2. Frost Death Knight Playstyle on King Rastakhan

It may be worth using Wraith Walk Icon Wraith Walk to spread incase you get Plague of Fire Icon Plague of Fire.
