Resilience no longer keeps you from being crit, making crit a much better PvP stat than it used to be. I am therefore having a blast with my crit-heavy Frost PvP build running around blowing things up. Re Chillblains: Somehow I can never shake the suspicion that this talent secretly sucks, especially when Chains of Ice applies Frost Fever and is a much better snare. In Cata, Frost DKs will be able to talent into Desecration, which is better in every conceivable way.

Chains of Ice is an excellent snare, but it also costs 1 Frost rune, so it will severely limit your options if you want to keep it permanently applied. More Chains of Ice = Less Obliterates. Investing in an empowered Frost Fever is worth it because you'll always have it applied on your opponent, anyway.

Also, while crit is definitely an improved stat in PvP, the power you're enjoying now won't necessarily hold true for Cataclysm, where Stamina values will jump significantly and healing will be scaled better.

Chains adds FF to the target meaning they also get Chillblains added to them when CoI is used. Just a thought...
