1. Battle for Azeroth Frequently Asked Questions

This section will go over several of the most frequently asked questions regarding Frost Death Knights in Battle for Azeroth.

1.1. Should I Have a Lot of Downtime When Playing Breath of Sindragosa?

Yes. Currently Frost Death Knights using Breath of Sindragosa Icon Breath of Sindragosa are experiencing about 30% downtime where they are doing nothing but auto attacks. If you are experiencing more than 30% downtime, then we recommend looking at our rotation guide, however this downtime can be affected by Runic Empowerment and Rime Icon Rime procs.

1.2. Does the Downtime of Breath of Sindragosa Decrease with Higher Haste?

No. Haste does increase your Rune regeneration rate, however it also increases your global cooldown at a 1:1 ratio meaning that increasing your Haste does not reduce your downtime when using the Breath of Sindragosa build.

1.3. Why Was Frost So Powerful in the Pre-patch Compared to Now

Like some other classes, Frost has very powerful legendary items. The Rogue specs, Retribution Paladins, Windwalker Monks, and Frost Death Knights have some of the strongest legendary items when it comes to raiding. With these legendary items leaving in Battle for Azeroth, the gap between Unholy and Frost will close a bit.

1.4. Should You Hold Pillar of Frost for Breath of Sindragosa or the Other Way Around?

Some people may not have noticed that after the first Breath of Sindragosa Icon Breath of Sindragosa, your Pillar of Frost Icon Pillar of Frost does not sync up with it anymore. You want to always use Pillar of Frost on cooldown, and delay your second Breath of Sindragosa until Pillar of Frost becomes available.
