Just felt like being a bit of an asshat and mentioning that the DK's Mind Freeze, if talented, [i]doesn't[/i] use up any resources. I agree that WS is superior when it comes from an Enhancement Shammy, given it has half the cooldown period of MF, but it falls behind when coming from the other Shammy specs since not only do they have to really fret over mana usage, but they might end up having to interrupt a spell to cast it.And DK's have Strangulate too, but that ability sucks for PvE anyway. >_>Alright, moving along.

That's really interesting- I didn't know DKs/Warriors could talent into resourceless-interrupts! Thanks!

Yep. Endless Winter is two tiers down on the DK Frost tree, so technically any spec could get it. Don't see it being grabbed by Blood though unless they're cool skipping Morbidity, but I can easily see Unholy picking it up if they don't mind skipping Butchery. Blood can reduce Strangulate's cooldown to one minute through Hand of Doom, and Strangulate can Silence the target for 5 seconds, but since you can't get rid of the cost in any way, it really seems like more of a PvP thing to me, or at least something only used in emergencies. I dunno, I haven't used it very often myself.Wait, why am I discussing DK interrupts in a Shammy column? >_>
