Death Knight Build in 4.0.1

One of the main classes, it seems, to have benefited from patch 4.0.1 is the Death Knight. Frost now has some insane DPS, even at lower levels!
This is the build I am currently using: here. This is the current elitisjerks build. If you are using it with a 2h weapon, use Unholy Presence, otherwise use Frost Presence.
I am using, for Glyphs, Glyph of Howling Blast and Glyph of Obliterate. Glyph of Howling Blast allows your Howling Blast to apply your Frost Fever and hits harder than Icy Touch, so use this as your priority rotation:

Howling Blast, Plague Strike, Obliterate, Blood Strike, Frost Strike to dump runic. Make sure to keep Horn of Winter up and your DPS will soar through the roof!
The only thing I do not like with this build, since I am still leveling my Death Knight on the server that I play on now, is that there's not as much self-healing with this build. So expect a little downtime while you drink again. Blood is just not as viable as a leveling build since it has been redesigned to be the "tanking" build, but it still contains all the self healing, so I may try it out later to see.

Go here.

Go home!
