PvE Frost Death Knight Talents, Builds & Glyphs

With the arrival of Cataclysm, the talent system received a massive overhaul, changing from the 71 talent points system to a more compact 41 points system. As such, many of the old talents were either completely removed or changed, resulting in fewer possible build variations. One key aspect of the new system is that you must use at least 31 points in your main specialization to use the remaining 10 points in a secondary specialization.

Talent Builds

Frost Death Knights have the option of using two different builds, depending on which playstyle they prefer. They can either opt for a Dual-Wield Build or a Two-Handed Build. In terms of flexibility, both builds have a standardized talent order with little to no room for changes. The only talent that may be swapped freely is Lichborne, being either used for an additional point in either Butchery or Runic Power Mastery in the Dual-Wield Build and only for Butchery in the Two-Handed Build.
