    Frost Leveling Rotation

    I've been reading the Icy Veins guide over and over. It never mentions when I should cast chains of ice, but it recommends I take Cold Heart. I'm about to start leveling through SL but leveling from 8-48 I opened with Chains of Ice, followed by Remorseless Winter because of Gathering Storm.

    But all the guides focus on big fights, so I'm not entirely sure how to fight regular mobs

    Honestly, I recommend the Wowhead guide: https://www.wowhead.com/death-knight-leveling-guide

    And you can always join the appropriate Discord. We're all pretty friendly there.
    Just don't reply to me. Please. If you can help it.

    Chains (20 stacks ofc) is best used when the enemy got 5 stacks razorice, your Pillar is active + Crusader is up. That's pretty much it. Just use it on stronger enemies.

    ...it doesn't really matter what you take if you are leveling.


    All you gotta do is Howling Blast --> Obliterate until you run out of runes --> Frost Strike (or Frostscythe *if* talented into and *if* 3 or more targets). Use Remorseless Winter on cooldown. Hell... throw a DnD in there if you are feeling squirrelly.


    But, if you insist using Cold Heart, wait until 20 stacks and pair it with Pillar of Frost.

    All 3 of the first row choices are garbage for leveling, unless you're dual wielding, then Icy Talons is hands down the best for leveling.

    If I could go back, I wouldn't have used a 2 hander at all.

    Chains of Ice against regular mobs is hit and miss. Most of the time I'd rather just open up with RW and then Chains is used like an execute most of the time. It's way better in Torghast where single target matters a lot more.
