Frost Death Knight Dps Talent Tree Wow 3.3.3a

I’d like to write about these 4 talents below because they are taken not fully sometimes. Depending on the situation, gear, encounter, and raid you might want to tweak them a bit from optimization of your build

  • Subversion – small DPS increase and a nice Treat decrease. Useful if you don’t have a Paladin with Hand of Salvation in your raid.
  • Black Ice – is taken minimum 2/5 as a go-through talent. Note that, this talent has synergy with Strength, not Armor Penetration.
  • Killing Machine – is taken either way. The efficiency of this talent is inverse to the amount of Critical Strike chance. The less crit you have, the more useful this talent is.
  • Blood-Caked Blade – a nice DPS boost. Works best with Armor Penetration, the more you have it – the more damage it will deal.

Gems are situational and depend on the build and equipment. They are used to reach the required stat caps.

Hit → Expertise → Strength → Armor Pen. → Crit. → Haste → Attack Power → Agility

With this build, you’ll need 5% (164 Hit) thanks to Nerves of Cold Steel (4% if Draenei). Also a total of 26 Expertise.
