Rotation & Cooldowns for Frost Death Knight in PvE | Latest Patch 7.0.3
The following rotation guide was developed through extensive simulations and play testing with the goal of keeping the guide as simple as possible without sacrificing performance. This guide also included AoE rotations and provides details on when to use special talents and cooldowns.
Single Target Rotation
DPS Priority: Execute the following priority for optimal DPS.
- Frost Frost Fever maintain at all times via Howling Blast.
- Obliterate with Killing Machine procs.
- Howling Blast with Rime procs.
- Obliterate to dump Runes.
- Frost Strike to dump Runic Power.
The Frost Death Knight DPS priority begins by maintaining Frost Frost Fever at all times with Howling Blast. Next, you need to manage your main procs by consuming Killing Machine with Obliterate and Rime with Howling Blast. Finally, use Obliterate to dump excess Runes and Frost Strike to dump Runic Power.
- Howling Blast to dump Runes.
The AoE rotation is very similar to the single target rotation with the notable exception of using Howling Blast as your primary Rune dump. Continue to manage your Killing Machine and Rime procs, but dump Runes with Howling Blast instead of extra Obliterate.
Information on how to incorporate the selected talents from this guide into your rotation is currently being re-worked for 7.0.3. Check back later!
These are effective cooldowns to try and incorporate into most all encounters.
