I can't complain too much about the Frost spec, it's the standard everyday tanking spec for DKs. What I love most about it is that you still get to feel like you're contributing something to the fight other than being a meat shield, because you still get to wield that huge 2h weapon. Take that, Warriors!

surprisingly, frost is actually a pretty good DPS spec, if crossed into unholy and if you know what you are doing. first you need to use 2 1h weapons, as threat of thasarian makes you pretty epic with that, my DK has a gearscore of 3800 or something like that and he has ilvl 200 weapons. and he pulls 3.5k dps in raids and crits 10k with howling blast, its pretty amazing.

Edit: Since 4.0.1 Frost is now a dedicated dps spec. as such it's dps potential has skyrocketed. however, i see WAY too many frost DKs walking around with a 2h weapon. this saddens me greatly. might of the frozen wastes is the worst thing blizz has ever invented as it completely ruins a very good dps spec. threat of thassarian does alot more damage than people think and 1h frost completely outshines 2h frost in every way. you don't run out of runic power in 1h frost and so might is utterly worthless and makes people believe that they need to be 2h frost dps and crit mabey 15k frost strikes in 5.5k GS when in 5k GS my DK crits 17k total frost strikes with 2 1 handers.

great for DPS and tanking, but I chose this for leveling DPS because let's face it FAAAAR too many Blood DPS players (Most have 'Cullen' somewhere in their name!)

Edit: well I've discovered Frost tanking is very hard to spec as right now we have to choose PvP or DPS talents just to get to the decent tanking ones :/
