Can DKs even level through Pandaria as something other than blood?

I tried to switch it up a little bit by going unholy, and in an area with lots of mob pulls I just got my **** smoked.

I leveled as Frost, no problem. Of course, you have to be a tad bit smarter about your play, than you do with Blood.

the thing is, blood really spoils you when you level as it. it's quite literally the easiest soloing in the game. you kinda get a little slack on your skills as you just coast the entire time.

you can level as frost quite well, you just have to be a bit more proactive, know when to use the few heals you have.

remember the ghoul heal too, death pact.

Yeah, I made liberal use of things like Death Pact when I leveled as Frost from 85-88, then just said **** it and switched back to Blood for easy ridin'.

Please change your vector and move to a different coordinate because this quadrant is off limits.

I went as frost 85-90 a week ago without issues, but tried blood for instances. I just figured since the class is horrible and bores me to no limit and it will sit as my farmer whore as usual at max level that i would opt to get there as fast as possible, so went blood for queue, frost for quests.

You can...but why would you? you can pull everything in sight and end the fight with 100% hp vs pulling 1-3 mobs and having to use CDs and still almost dying.

Blood's slow as hell questing.

imho, frost > blood in terms of questing. I breezed from 85-90. maybe because I had a ilvl 471 wep at lvl85, but I'd just pull 3-6 packs back to back, focused one down while splashing the rest to continually be able to use glyphed death strike. similar to my warrior as arms.

honestly frost is easy to play. blood does make questing effortless, but by putting some effort you should be able to lvl as frost faster.
