Q u o t e:
Icy Touch: This ability now causes a very high amount of threat while the death knight is in Frost Presence.


(The Good) - Burst Threat!!!

(The Bad?)- Mashing Icy Touch will be part of the tanking rotation? Icy Touch's initial hit, hits just as hard as Obliterate. I can imagine doing an entire rotation of just Icy Touch and Pestilence.

We wanted Icy Touch to feel a little like Shield Slam -- the big hit you could launch when you need a lot of threat to say grab a recently spawned add. I don't think most DKs will mind having a little more single target threat overall, but we don't want to turn them into a rotation of all Icy Touch. If that happens, we might have to notch the threat down a little more.
