Any arena tricks for disc priest/frost DK?
Return to board index
I was wondering if there were any tricks for a disc priest/frost DK combo for arena's. me and my arena partner are starting to get up there and we're doing pretty good.
So far the only tricks that we've found is to have me life-grip him then he death-grips his target so we can LOS the dps from the healer or to separate the both of them. the other trick is for me to use my psychic scream to force them to pop their trinket and then he freezes them in place and kills the DPS quickly.

After the freeze you can even throw an additional MC on the healer or the other dps so your dk can pretty much 1on1 kill the other DPS cus he got even more time.
I didn't think of that before. I'll have to try something like MC or something. Thanks for the tip :)
-> Mass Dispel can be used with really incredible results. Remember how it works, even if out of line of sight you can cast it. If your partner is feared behind a pillar, Mass Dispel can reach him. Equally, you can prevent a Rogue's stealth if he's behind a pillar - MD will stop him from leaving combat.
-> Shadow Word: Death can break Polymorph. It's a lag issue that Blizzard never bothered to fix, and you can use it to your advantage (This works for any breaks-on-damage CC!). Just cast SW:D right when your Mage is about to end the Poly cast. If you time it right, your SW:D backlash damage will hit you AFTER the spell, thus breaking it. Blind and Repentance work too, but their instant nature makes it quite a bit harder to predict.
-> Mind Sear being targetted on friendly targets can be used to scout for stealthers.
-> You're able to Shackle Undead on Lichborne DKs (when they pop it) and their pets (all the time).
-> Fear's greatest strength is not to be a powerful single target CC (Fear breaking mechanics are all over the place), but a multiple one. Having your DK grip 1 of the enemies to place them into a double fear can be devastating.
-> Mind Control was mentioned above.
-> Power Word: Barrier should be placed intelligently. It can cover whole pillars while in the Nagrand arena, if can cover edges to give you the buff both on upper and lower platforms like on Dalaran sewers, it can be used with Life Grip to bring your team into it.
-> Penance doesn't break the cast if your enemy/ally leaves line of sight while it channels.
