The Death Knight Thread

Postby The Great JT » Thu Mar 20, 2008 9:26 pm

WotLK's coming out, and we need a "discussion of Death Knights" thread. Get cracking.

I'm really starting to get curious as to how a Death Knight will play. Y'know, I get the feeling it'll be somewhat of a middle-ground between a Retribution-spec paladin and an Arms-spec (or Fury-spec, if you're a dual-wielder DK) warrior meshed together with a rogue. I read that certain kinds of runes fuel certain kinds of abilities, and that X, Y and Z number of runes are required to use whatever ability, sort of like different numbers of rogue combo points differ the effect/increase the duration/increase the damage/whatever, and the fact they use mainly 1-hand and 2-hand bladed weapons and plate mail means they'd have high survivability and damage output, like a Retribution paladin, Rogue in Plate (Fury warrior) or Arms warrior.

On an unrelated question, when WotLK comes out, what race are you gonna start a DK as? I think I'm gonna transfer my paladin over to another server (RP server, because the server I'm on is terrible and missed the point of world PvP) and start a female human DK.

Wish they would allow my blood elf mage to be a necromancer, but I guess I have to stick with my death knight pink tailed gnome.

Sounds a lot like Feral Druids ;p

Back on topic, I suspect they're closest to being "Evil" Ret Pallies... sort of like Meleemancers of D2, or the child of a Warlock/Warrior couple.

I really, REALLY hope that the Rune system isn't similar to how Runescape magic works. I couldn't stand being a spellcaster in that game.

tbh a deathknight can't heal because he denied all the good in him/her

Did you guys know that Blood elf pally's are actually called Blood knights? Just letting ya know.


What I think that they're going to do with WotLKs new class (DK) is that when you get to 80 on a regular paladin, you do some sort of quest and become able to create a DK. You make a new character but the character starts at lvl 60 rather than lvl 1.

OR

Another way they might do it is that the same thing. Like do a quest at 80 and stuff and then your holy skill tree is switched with unholy or something and your spell book goes through a bunch of changes but that might be difficult to do.

If they make a new faction...A lot of people are going to pissed. I'll be pretty pissed.

Not third faction. Still Horde/All.
But DK ain't anything for me. Not until they can become Cookie Knights.

Instead of the Lich King, we can have some form of Cookie Lord!

New expansion revealed:
The Cookie Lord strikes back at Azeroth to devour the races that battle across its surface once and for all!

...As a title naturally.
As it cant be a WOTLK ripoff, we can instead of vampiric giant vikings (?) have were-bear gnomes swinging gigantic spanners instead.
Just a thought, just a thought...
Would look awesome though.

I dunno if the guard is all like "DEATH KNIGHT! KILL IT! BURN ITS FACE!" or all like "Hmpf. Death Knight. Keep an eye on that one, don't let him trade with the vendors" or whatever. Bottomline, you DO join Alliance/Horde faction, they dont like you either way, you have hideouts or something abit everywhere anyway.


I reckon it will be more or less like warlock and rogue trainers. Standing around outside or in some damp dark basement.
A separate death knight camp, sort of like Moonglade for druids, would be really cool though..

i agree with the moonglade theory but a 3rd faction would be kinda kool it would put a new spin on pvp. alliance vs horde and scourge against everyone! i think bgs would prove to difficult on how they get DK in, but it would be kool to be in a faction that says "alliance or horde?.....F*** em all!!!!" :lol:
