In 5.3 for PvP for Frost, what i the stat priority? I've read the best is Haste>Mastery>Crit for 2H. Just want to make sure
As for the OP's question, I do believe you're correct. It also seems a popular notion nowadays to do away with PvP power gems completely. (though don't quote me on that)
haste and mastery are close together but for 2h you have it right
Given up on dk pvp. It's bad, really bad. Only good as target caller in rbgs, and maybe in arenas. In wpvp, duels and random bgs you get raped by pretty much everything except locks and spriests. Hell, rogues and ferals actually have time to spam /lol while "outplaying" you and BM huntards are untouchable. This as frost. As unholy you may actually kills something before getting "outplayed" if you blow big ghoul and garg.
I run arena's and do bg's as 2h frost and I very rarely get beat by a single other class. DK's in general have so many tools to negate a lot of other classes abilities that i'm not sure why people are bitching about how dk's are bad in pvp. I don't always beat UH dk's but I definitely can hold my own against them when we come face to face. With the obliterate burst damage we can put out, you just need to put pressure on the opponent to force them to use cooldowns/trinkets. Once they do, you open up your can of whoop-ass obliterate style.
I'm not saying you will win all the time, but if you play smart and time your abilities wisely, you will find that we are not in a very bad spot pvp wise atm. Just my 2c though.
P.S. As far as stats go, my testing has revealed to me that str>haste>pvpp>mastery>crit. That's what has been working for me.
to the guuy complaining about world pvp...just go blood for world pvp...and make sure you have necro strike on your bars. I was doing the weekly quest and attacked a warrior then his rogue friend tried taking me out. I killed both of them and lol'd. I know this isnt the case for everyone but I thought it was hilarious that 2v1 they couldnt kill me and basically fed me scent of blood charges.
I tried both Haste->mastery->crit and haste->crit->mastery..... The recommended prio is Haste->Crit->Mastery http://www.noxxic.com/wow/pvp/death-.../stat-priority
I find that prioritizing crit over mastery works best for my playstyle. Increased mastery really only helps you pad the meters with splash damage from HB and a bit more dam on FS. Increased crit works on all abilities and that xtra crit or 2 is really what lands the kill during burst phase.
My stats completely unbuffed:
