About Our Reviewer

1. Gems for Frost Death Knights

2. Enchants for Frost Death Knights

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

3. Consumables for Frost Death Knights

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). Astral Healing Potion Icon Astral Healing Potion can be used in place of Healthstones.

If you can afford it, you should also use augment runes (which work in both raids and Mythic+ dungeons). Defiled Augment Rune Icon Defiled Augment Rune is the cheap rune with a one-time use. Lightforged Augment Rune Icon Lightforged Augment Rune costs 40,000 Gold and requires exalted reputation with the Army of the Light faction.
