About Our Reviewer

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Totemlord, a Frost Death Knight enthusiast and respected theorycrafter on the Frost Death Knight Discord. You can contact him on Discord under the name Nic#9561.

1. Preface

As stated on the stats page, after the 20% Critical Strike breakpoint is achieved, all secondary stats are more or less equal in value. On this page, we provide Critical Strike enhancements, but you can replace these as you see fit.

2. Gems

You should use Saber's Eye of Strength Icon Saber's Eye of Strength in one socket, and Deadly Eye of Prophecy Icon Deadly Eye of Prophecy in all other sockets.

3. Enchants

Slot Enchantment
Neck
Back
Rings
Main-hand Weapon Rune of Razorice Icon Rune of Razorice
Off-hand Weapon Rune of the Fallen Crusader Icon Rune of the Fallen Crusader

4. Consumables

Flask of the Countless Armies Icon Flask of the Countless Armies should be used for raids along with Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power (for Breath of Sindragosa Icon Breath of Sindragosa) or Potion of the Old War Icon Potion of the Old War (for the machine gun playstyle) as your potion of choice. You should eat Lavish Suramar Feast Icon Lavish Suramar Feast for the buff to your Strength (or the cheaper Hearty Feast Icon Hearty Feast if you cannot afford the +500 food). Ancient Healing Potion Icon Ancient Healing Potion can be used in place of Healthstones.

If you can afford it, you should also use the Legion augment rune: Defiled Augment Rune Icon Defiled Augment Rune. Note that it now works in Mythic+ dungeons (it did not used to).
