Best DK build for PVE?

#1Morael_ThelPosted 12/29/2012 2:40:51 PM
I'm on my first character (lvl 40 Worgen warrior) and I'm grinding to 55 so I can start a DK build. I've only heard a little about DK's and I was wondering what is likely to be the best method for doing PVE with my friends. I do a lot of solo'ing, so I don't prefer to tank. Also, I'll be using a two hander, if any of that information narrows it down. Thanks in advance for the help.

Tank builds are generally the easiest to solo with; Blood, the Tank spec for DKs, is the easiest and best spec to solo with in the game (except perhaps Hunter, but they are extremely close).

Actually, Blood with DPS gear is the best with the few exceptions you need tank gear

Ah, shows what I know. So I should stick to the blood tree if I'm going to solo. That's probably what I'll go with then.

To clarify, they are talking about soloing old raids and dungeons. Blood is ok for just questing alone but Frost would probably be better since Blood's damage is not amazing.

Okay. Is Frost viable if you don't dual wield?

It's best if you do, but you can get by with a two-handed weapon.

2h frost is currently the better spec between the two, and tier14 is itemized better for 2 hand... however I play DW and I'm only slightly lower next to my equally geared 2h raid mate.
My point is DW or 2h doesnt matter until you're talking about heroic gear, until then they are pretty much the same. 2h also stacks crit, and I avoid RNG as best as I can.

Go Frost.
Alone, spam Obliterate and Frost Strike. In dungeons for AoE, spam Howling Blast and Frost Strike.

Everything will be amazing.

Really? I've heard the opposite. That DW is better than 2h for frost.
