if you're comfy with giving up some survival for the burst damage go for it

Frost survival isn't too bad in PvP, personally using stuff like AMS, Dark Sim, and Conversion properly can make a big difference. It's all about knowing when to hit hard and when to focus on survival.

You don't use Conversion with Frost...

If you're running with a healer then Frost is killer. Double DPS Unholy is better as it has 3x the survivability. Personally I use strictly Unholy, the damage ends up being the same as Frost, if not more, only difference is Unholy doesn't have Oblit crits, but it does have far more ranged damage.

Arena is more of a war of attrition. UH is good for surviving while eating up the other team with DoTs and using your pet to interrupt/cc their heals.

Frost is more about burst and overall DPS but it's a glass cannon and doesn't survive small scale battles well. Frost shines in BGs or 5v5 where there is more support and howling blast is hitting many targets at once. There's no shortage of frost DKs in the high-rated RBGS.

Or you could just go blood and never die.

eh... only reason rbg groups take a dk over another ranged class is death grip and gorefiends grasp. has nothing to do with any kind of damage we can put out in any of our specs.

Another reason Frost DK is used for Target calling is we can still do descent damage while calling targets, vocalizing moves (call rings, vortex, ect) and paying attention to the battle field.
The "ease of use" of Frost DK allows us to put our eggs in other baskets without gimping ourselves.
