Best Flasks, Oils, Potions for Frost

Augment Runes for Frost

If you can afford it, you should use Veiled Augment Rune Icon Veiled Augment Runes (or the permanent Eternal Augment Rune Icon Eternal Augment Rune) to increase your primary stat.

Death Knight Runeforges for Frost

  • Rune of the Fallen Crusader Icon Rune of the Fallen Crusader — This Runeforge is always used in your off-hand for dual wield Frost Death Knights and used as the enchant for two-handed Frost Mythic+ builds. Once you obtain the Arctic Assault Icon Frost DK 4-Piece Set Bonus, it becomes your go-to enchant in all scenarios.
  • Rune of Razorice Icon Rune of Razorice — This Runeforge is always used in your main-hand for dual wield and used as the enchant for two-handed Frost raid builds. Your Arctic Assault Icon Frost DK 4-Piece Set Bonus essentially mimics the value of this Runeforge partially, making you pick up other options instead of it!
  • Rune of Hysteria Icon Rune of Hysteria — Provides a nice resource boost to your rotation. Only picked up with Breath of Sindragosa Icon Breath of Sindragosa once you have obtained the Arctic Assault Icon Frost DK 4-Piece Set bonus.
  • Rune of Sanguination Icon Rune of Sanguination — A new Runeforge in Shadowlands that provides a small execute effect for Death Strike Icon Death Strike and a small cheat death mechanic. This Runeforge has more of a place in PvP as opposed to PvE content and is a viable Runeforge for Torghast.
  • Rune of Spellwarding Icon Rune of Spellwarding — A new Runeforge in Shadowlands that provides small defense towards casters making it more geared towards PvP situations.
  • Rune of the Apocalypse Icon Rune of the Apocalypse — A new Runeforge in Shadowlands that is currently very weak compared to other options.
  • Rune of the Stoneskin Gargoyle Icon Rune of the Stoneskin Gargoyle — This Runeforge is a defensive option that does not see play for Frost.
  • Rune of Unending Thirst Icon Rune of Unending Thirst — A new Runeforge in Shadowlands that is commonly used for leveling since it provides movement speed, Haste, and heals when you kill an enemy.
