I'm not entirely sure if the KM is needed to 5/5, on other servers I've had success with 3/5 (the one I was most comfortable with).

Every week, WoW Insider brings you Lichborne for blood, frost, and unholy death knights. By the time you read this, there's a pretty high chance that patch 4.0.1 will be on the live servers.
Here are some alternative specs: Survival- oriented: loses raid- utility of Abomination’s Might (1. AP buff) and Hysteria, to gain Spell Deflection and Mark of Blood.
Works if you have enhancement shaman reliably in the raid. Will require more careful RP- management since there is no Scent of Blood, so that you always have RP for IBF and RS.
Threat- oriented: no raid utility, also loses Rune Tap (self- healing) to gain Sudden Doom and Subversion. Requires someone else in the 2. Attack Power. Can swap will of the necropolis for rune tap if you prefer a more proactive tanking style, like this, which also lets you get Necrosis (for slightly more tps than Subversion)Heroic 5- man bias: good spec to choose if you’re 2nd spec is for dps. No will of the necropolis, but has Abom Might and Corpse Explosion for 5- mans along with glyph of Dn. D so your AOE works. I’ve analysed that too. Curious on the threat difference between a survival and threat oriented spec?
Glyphs. Best glyphs are: vampiric blood (mandatory as a tank),death strike (for threat, does not effect self- healing) andrune strike or disease. I might do some testing to see how much closer dark death glyph now is to rune strike, but it should still be pretty far behind. Glyph of disease is a quality of life option, makes for a simplified rotation. I need to test its threat output, but suspect it’s about neutral. Threat stat weightings. Verified these on Dec 1.
ICC dodge aura and Bluedragon specs. Strength . The key is glyph of Dn. D and Corpse Explosion. The combination makes it formidable on trash. You do not need corpex in raids. I went with glyphs of death strike, vampiric blood and death and decay. Remember the minor glyph of corpse explosion, too.
You need a little more skill in managing cooldowns than you do as Frost tank, so you can use Dn. D twice on really big AOE pulls. AOE works by using corpse explosion as your runic dump as soon as you can, cleaving with heart strike plus tabbing around if necessary, plus a single- disease spread of frost so your blood boil has more punch. The buff from Abominations Might, 1. AP, also buffs your AOE spells by that amount since their damage is based on a coefficient of your attack power.
Corpse explosion hits pretty hard, 9. I like that it’s RP- based so you can AOE even if your runes are on cooldown.
Basically for an AOE rotation I would do this: open with Death and Decaydeath grip a caster into it. Icy Touch, Plague Strike, Pestilience on the first kill targetwait for runes, and auto attack a different mob if neededthen if 3 or more targets alive: blood boil, blood boil, death strike. RP for corpse explosion, so avoid using death coilfrom here in, you should prioritise one disease up on all targets, blood boil then corpose explosion. Remember to do a death strike occasionally so you generate death runes, which you use for spamming blood boil. Variation: don’t do plague strike, then use Blood Tap.
