WoW Mists of Pandaria Pre-Raid Itemization Guide – Dual Wield Frost Death Knight – Main Hand Weapons

My Death Knight plays dual-wield Frost. It’s the best spec by far despite what other blogs will tell you. Actually, I play a DW Frost DK because it’s fun. I know, I know… crazy, right?

As a level 85 looking to level quickly and get into heroics, your best bet is to farm the auction house for either the Porter’s Tooth-Marked Mace or the Horrifying Meatsaw. These will set you back 2K-3K gold, but you’ll use one or both of them from level 85 to at least 89 if not 90. If you can hold out until 89, you can obtain a couple of decent options from quests.

When you hit level 90, you’ll want to pick up either the Amber Espada of Klaxxi’vess from The Klaxxi at Exalted, or buy/craft the Masterwork  Phantasmal Hammer. Both weapons have almost an identical DPS score, so pick whichever one suits your play style.

For best-in-slot, look no further than the Inelava, Spirit of Inebriation. This iLevel 476 axe drops in regular Stromstout Brewery. It has a very low drop rate, but well worth your troubles as you prepare for end game.
