This is the most optimal Frost DK Leveling Spec for 5.4. If you have any questions or suggestions on the build, please let me know.

(Mouseover for descriptions)
Level 56 – Unholy Blight
Great talent to use when you want to AoE down a bunch of quest mobs. The cooldown is a little long, but it’s well worth it.
Level 57 – Lichborne
One of the biggest ways to save time while leveling, is picking up self-healing talents. This is the only tier 2 talent that will do that for you, so it’s the obvious choice.
Level 58 – Asphyxiate
Death’s Advance is also a great ability for this tier, but I found Asphyxiate MUCH more enjoyable to have. There’s nothing like watching a caster get choked right before their about to cast a spell.
Level 60 – Conversion
Another great ability for speeding up the leveling process. It’s basically a self-healing talent that you never have to worry about. Saves you time since it’s won’t be a focal point of your rotation.
Level 75 – Runic Corruption
This seemed to be the most beneficial for this tier. Blood Tap wasn’t building up charges fast enough and Runic Empowerment isn’t strong enough compared to Runic Corruption.
Level 90 – Remorseless Winter
Very useful to have if you plan on soloing the last Mists zones when hitting 90. Works great for elites, especially if they have adds with them.
