Why dont DK frost tanks convert into death runes
Return to board index
I looked at the cookie cutter spec for 2h frost tanks the
but I have specced into
just wondering why you wouldn't spec into death runes to enable more attacks and greater threat gen? . . is there some reason why
is more important? cause as a tank I dont see the great importance of AP over more HB or BB or OB etc etc . . Im new to this so I definetly could/probably be wrong. Please help
More attacks, but less threat generation. For a Frost tank, 1 Obliterate is going to produce more threat than 2 Blood Strikes, as well as have a chance to proc Rime, which is even more threat and better AOE tanking. The only possible use for DRM would be more Blood Boils for AOE, but that's not nearly a good enough reason, as your AOE aggro should be great as is. Keep in mind, also, that since a DK's spells scale with attack power, Bladed Armor actually does improve your Howling Blast and Blood Boil.
So no, no good reason to take it, but it's not an unreasonable question or anything. The standard builds just utilize the points better. Two-Handed Weapon Spec and Bladed Armor are superior threat talents across the board, you need 5 in Anticipation, and at least two in Scent of Blood, so there's no room for it.
1) Death Rune Mastery converts your Frost and Unholy runes to Death Runes after you Obliterate. There is no way this talent can grant you more HB/OB, because you haven't converted the runes you don't use for HB/OB into runes that you can use for HB/OB.
w/o Death Runes - BBFFUU = HB/OB/BS/BS
w/ Death Runes - BBDDDD = HB/OB/BS/BS
2) Bladed Armor returns a huge amount of AP for a tank because of the huge amount of armor they possess, and thus a huge amount of threat compared to the other options at that tier.
cool thanks guys I hadnt looked at it from that perspective *sigh* time for yet another respec lol
I've had Full-Death build back in the 3.0.
Honestly, it was a mess, and only OP moment of DK class at that time was allowed me to survive.
Frost Tanks do convert to death runes. They just convert Blood runes to Death runes via
Blood of the North
. This then allows you to do an HB/OB/OB (or HB/OB/HB/OB if Rime procs) every other rotation.
