Glacier Rot is a death knight talent located in the first tier of the frost tree. It causes enemies who are afflicted by any disease to take up to 20% additional damage from your frost-based abilities. Since you always want to keep up on any target you are fighting, this generally translates into a 20% damage increase for these abilities.
Tips and tactics
