Obliteration Raid Talents

The main choice you need to make as a Frost Death Knight is whether or not you are playing Breath of Sindragosa Icon Breath of Sindragosa or Obliteration Icon Obliteration. Both builds are competitive on pretty much every single boss (both in top 10 DPS) so it is down to personal preference what you play. I will recommend one Breath of Sindragosa Icon Breath of Sindragosa build and one Obliteration Icon Obliteration build for each boss.

Some other choices involve picking up Abomination Limb Icon Abomination Limb for both builds, or Frostwhelp's Aid Icon Frostwhelp's Aid for Breath of Sindragosa Icon Breath of Sindragosa.

3.

Eranog

3.1.

Talents

For Eranog, Frostwyrm's Fury Icon Frostwyrm's Fury will gain a lot of Power due to the add spawns. However, the adds do not have that high of a priority, and using Frostwyrm on them, while good for your DPS, is not very good for defeating the boss. I would run the default builds here.

  • Breath: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAkIAIikEJiERISSIkIJRECIRkIJJJJJplAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  • Obliteration: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAcgIAIhkEJiERISSIkIJRkAIhkERSSSSKJBAAAAAAAAAAAA
3.2.

Tips

  • Save your Frostwyrm's Fury Icon Frostwyrm's Fury for the adds that spawn if you have picked up this talent.
  • You can use Death Grip Icon Death Grip and Abomination Limb Icon Abomination Limb to help control the small adds that spawn, grouping them up to help your team AoE them down more quickly.

For more information, please refer to our Eranog guide.

4.

Terros

4.1.

Talents

A pure Single Target encounter where the default builds are best.

  • Breath: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAkIAIikEJiERISSIkIJRECIRkIJJJJJplAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  • Obliteration: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAcgIAIhkEJiERISSIkIJRkAIhkERSSSSKJBAAAAAAAAAAAA
4.2.

Tips

  • Use your Anti-Magic Zone Icon Anti-Magic Zone when the tank clears the spikes.
  • Actively use your Anti-Magic Shell Icon Anti-Magic Shell when big hits are incoming. Try and time it for when you need extra Runic Power for Breath of Sindragosa Icon Breath of Sindragosa!

For more information, please refer to our Terros guide.

5.

The Primal Council

5.1.

Talents

Stacked 4-target cleave means that our AoE talents gain a lot of value. Abomination Limb Icon Abomination Limb for both builds, Frostwhelp's Aid Icon Frostwhelp's Aid for Breath and even Glacial Advance Icon Glacial Advance for Obliteration! We also pick up Coldthirst Icon Coldthirst for the extra Runic Power generation for Breath!

  • Breath: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAkIAkIJJkISEhIJhQiIRECIEJJJJJJJplAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  • Obliteration: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAICASkkQiIREikECJSSEJBIhkERSSSSKJBAAAAAAAAAAAA
5.2.

Tips

Each boss must die within a few seconds of the others or risk a complete wipe. You will naturally do more damage to your current target, so be sure to target swap to the highest health boss. Make sure to use your Death and Decay Icon Death and Decay as much as possible for the added Obliterate Icon Obliterate cleave.

  • Use Anti-Magic Shell Icon Anti-Magic Shell and Anti-Magic Zone Icon Anti-Magic Zone to soak up magic damage and generate Runic Power when playing Breath! Meteor Axes Icon Meteor Axes is a good opportunity to use these abilities.

For more information, please refer to our The Primal Council guide.

6.

Sennarth, the Cold Breath

6.1.

Talents

Death's Advance Icon Death's Advance is such a blessing on this fight, making it far easier for us compared to other classes! Even with a moderate amount of adds we recommend the standard default builds. Frostwyrm's Fury Icon Frostwyrm's Fury is a potential pick-up if you want to pad.

  • Breath: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAkIAIikEJiERISSIkIJRECIRkIJJJJJplAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  • Obliteration: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAcgIAIhkEJiERISSIkIJRkAIhkERSSSSKJBAAAAAAAAAAAA
6.2.

Tips

The big spider is going to be the biggest priority. Make sure to focus on this as soon as it spawns.

  • You can use Anti-Magic Shell Icon Anti-Magic Shell to run over patches of ice without taking damage. any
  • Use Death's Advance Icon Death's Advance to avoid the pull-in mechanic.
  • Save Frostwyrm's Fury Icon Frostwyrm's Fury for the adds that spawn.

Dathea, Ascended

7.1.

Talents

Frostwyrm's Fury Icon Frostwyrm's Fury has good value on this fight when fighting on the add platform. You can even opt to pick up Absolute Zero Icon Absolute Zero to bring a stun.

  • Save Frostwyrm's Fury Icon Frostwyrm's Fury for the adds (if you pick this talent).

Kurog Grimtotem

8.1.

Talents

This is primarily a 2-target encounter on Mythic, giving us good value for our cleave kit. We recommend the default builds with Abomination Limb Icon Abomination Limb in this scenario.

  • Breath: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAkIAISSCJiERISSIkIJRECIRkIJJJJJplAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  • Obliteration: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAcgIAIRSCJiERISSIkIJRkAIhkERSSSSKJBAAAAAAAAAAAA
8.2.

Tips

  • Use Anti-Magic Zone Icon Anti-Magic Zone to help reduce the raid-wide AoE damage once the boss reaches high energy as well as generating a ton of Runic Power.
  • Use Anti-Magic Shell Icon Anti-Magic Shell to generate extra Runic Power for your Breath of Sindragosa Icon Breath of Sindragosa.

For more information, please refer to our Kurog Grimtotem guide.

9.

Broodkeeper Diurna

9.1.

Talents

The talent choice here depends on your role during the fight. You are either fighting continuous waves of adds far away from the boss, or doing full Single Target on the boss itself. If you are on adds, make sure to pick up AoE talents to effectively cleave them down. On the boss, just do full Single Target default talents.

  • Boss:
    • Breath: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAkIAIikEJiERISSIkIJRECIRkIJJJJJplAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    • Obliteration: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAcgIAIhkEJiERISSIkIJRkAIhkERSSSSKJBAAAAAAAAAAAA

    • Obliteration: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAICASIJRiIREikECJSSEJRCcASSEJJJJpkEAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Tips

  • Leverage Death and Decay Icon Death and Decay as much as possible on the adds (if you are fighting them).

Raszageth the Storm-Eater

10.1.

Talents

This fight requires both good priority boss damage, as well as excellent burst cleave. I recommend Absolute Zero Icon Absolute Zero for both builds to bring that extra cleave! Furthermore, we pick up Blinding Sleet Icon Blinding Sleet to help with spark interrupts.

  • Breath: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAkIAiIJJkISEhIJhQiIRESCSEJSSSSSSaBAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  • Obliteration: BsPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAICgIRSCJiERISSIkISEJkgcASSEJJJJpkEAAAAAAAAAAAAA
10.2.

Tips

  • Use Death's Advance Icon Death's Advance to avoid the pushback from the boss, trivializing multiple aspects of the fight.
  • Use Blinding Sleet Icon Blinding Sleet, Death Grip Icon Death Grip, and Mind Freeze Icon Mind Freeze to interrupt the sparks, killing them instantly.
  • Use Anti-Magic Zone Icon Anti-Magic Zone as the sparks on your raid members explode to generate Runic Power and help your raid survive.
  • Save Frostwyrm's Fury Icon Frostwyrm's Fury in Phase 2 for when the adds make it to the center of the platform.
