General Information

On this page, we list the best gems, enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Frost Death Knight, based on your stat priority. We also give budget alternatives. This page is updated for World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.0.5.


Best Gems for Frost Death Knights

You should use Fractured Neltharite Icon Fractured Neltharite in all sockets, though many of the cheaper variants with Mastery as one of their two stats may also be viable. Be sure to simulate your character!


Best Enchants for Frost Death Knights

Frost Death Knights can utilise powerful Runeforges on their weapons instead of normal enchants. Choosing the right enchants is crucial for optimising your DPS! Here are the best enchants for the different viable builds!


For your Ring enchant, Enchant Ring - Devotion of Mastery Icon Enchant Ring - Devotion of Mastery is the most commonly used and will usually be your best choice. It is still recommended that you sim your character to see which enchant is the best for your gear.


Consumables for Frost Death Knights

In Dragonflight, consumables have ranks 1-3, increasing in power with increasing rank. Buying rank 3 is best for damage throughput but is likely to be more costly. You can read more about it below:


Profession Consumable Ranks

As part of Dragonflight's overhaul of Professions, many crafted items and consumables may have multiple ranks of quality that impact their effects. For consumables, there are potentially three ranks of an item that may be used, with Rank 3 items (shown as item level 415 in-game and with three gold stars) providing the most powerful bonuses. However, higher quality consumables will generally be more expensive and not always necessary depending on the content you are doing. You should be willing to use whatever rank of an item is most within your budget, and save higher-quality consumables for content where you will really need the extra boost!

If you would like to learn more about quality ranks on profession items, or the overhaul to professions as a whole, please see our overview below.


Best Flasks, Oils, Potions for Frost

There are three options when it comes to Phials:

Buzzing Rune Icon Buzzing Rune should be placed on your weapon to provide passive crit.

When in combat, you only really have one option for your combat potion to use.

Warlock Healthstones and Refreshing Healing Potion Icon Refreshing Healing Potion should be used when at low health. Potion of Withering Vitality Icon Potion of Withering Vitality is a good emergency option that heals more up-front. However, you take the healing amount in damage over 15 seconds!

Always make sure to have Delicate Suspension of Spores Icon Delicate Suspension of Sporesand Residual Neural Channeling Agent Icon Residual Neural Channeling Agent available for when you potentially die and want to help out your teammates!


Best Food for Frost

Use Fated Fortune Cookie Icon Fated Fortune Cookie is your personal food of choice.
