This saves the runes normally required for Plague Strike and Icy Touch, allowing an additional Obliterate, Scourge Strike, or Death Strike.

Removal in Cataclysm

Cataclysm-Logo-Small This glyph was a core part of Frost DPS death knight rotations and was also seen in some Blood or Unholy specs; drastically changing each spec's rotation when it was applied. [Festering Strike] may compensate somewhat if it is incorporated correctly into a rotation.


This item is created with Inscription.

Materials required:
Inv inscription inksilver01
1x [Shimmering Ink]
Inv inscription scroll
1x [Heavy Parchment]
