Frost PvP Guide (Updated 9.20.11)
Like I said, I am not trying to start anything, if anything I am expanding on this guide. I have been playing frost since Cata dropped and I find it to be superior to unholy in certain situations and comps. If anyone has anyone qualms or questions about what I have said and/or would like me to explain my burst rotation or anything like that, feel free to reply or message me.
I am just starting to pvp, literally. Did a couple battlegrounds (which the alliance fails miserably). I'm just in a full set of starter 339 gear.
Will this be edited for 4.1? I understand they're buffing FS (Which will greatly increase my DPS when I'm high on RP and low on Runes) but nerfing Obliterate damage (Which has me fearful for my burst output and if I'll find myself removing much of my haste in favor of mastery, Which I find a bit awkward as it's untried).

waaaaaaaaaaaaat? Please tell me they arent touching Obliterate, its the only truly hard hitting skill we have!
Increasing frost strike damage and howling blast damage on the main target
but reducing the damage on the others ..
The only thing we have to find out is that .... Haste > Mastery or Mastery > Haste in 4.1 .. ?
You never mentioned expertise; does it have any value in PvP? Secondly, I have no arena partner and guild to do rated BGs, what else can I do to improve my gear?
You should really change your gems 20 strenght 30 stamina, for 3 gems 50 spell penetration
Instead of gemming strenght-haste, get the bracers, cloak, boots with some haste, you want 60% haste + ..
and no you don't need any expertise in pvp..
A pvp partner should'nt be hard to find only for points, so try to find one and change your weapon first.
That spec is questionable at best. 3/3 Rime alone is enough to not read any further.
I am glad that other frost DKs will be going by this. They will be easy kills. I am no pro, but I highly suggest checking some other guides out.
Look at any top frost DK on arenajunkies if you want help with talents. The posts questioning this guide will teach you more about frost pvp.
