I am joining the band wagon.
If you haven’t heard Lae at World of Lae is starting weeks of class discussion across the blogosphere, twittersphere, etc.
This Deathknight is the first Deathknight I ever got past level 70.
I got her to level 67 by the end of Cata. Then I dusted her off a few months ago and really started to level.
Why did I pick the professions?
I originally wanted to make her a BS/JC to min/max during Cata. I ended up leveling a Rogue first in Mop and putting ENG/BS on that toon. I figured pairing JC with mining because I was going to need ores to level JC. It feels natural to have a toon that can do both Prospecting and Smelting. It also seems weird not having those next to each other on my crafting bar.
I went JC for them mounts. I am trying get 200 mounts achievement. That’s one of the things I like to do in this game.
You also get Toughness from Mining and the Jewelcrafting only gems, Solid Serpent’s Eye and Fractured Serpent’s Eye.
Why a female Night Elf?
I like it when female night elves jump in place. Everything bounces. I mean Everything.
Pink Hair. Omg Pink Hair. So sexy. The pink hair matches so well with the Blood Worms.
Now look at them Racials.
Nature Resistance - Reduces nature damage by 1%.
Quickness – Now gives you a 2% increased chance to Dodge. I still thought it only gave 1%. I forgot it changed during MoP.
Shadowmeld - It’s like having a Hunter’s Feign Death. You wipe aggro but you turn invisible. Especially usually for a tank during a situation when you know everyone else is going to die. Especially if the healer is already down.
Wisp Spirit - Increases your speed by 75% while dead. As tank it would be so helpful for running back. If you die in certain places like Icecrown you can fly as a wisp. So awesome.
About the Deathknight class
I am debating if I should go for Shadowmourne.
I discovered that tanking ain’t easy. It’s a self conscious effort most of the time. I also wanted a tank so I could get pets and mounts out of the bags from heroics.
I like the Dots placed by diseases. I like how it holds aggro when you spread them with Blood Boil. I feel like Blood spec will be like the same affinity I have for BM Hunters.
I like Death Grip. Feeling like Scorpion is such a good feelng. Even that new one, Asphyxiate, makes you feel like Darthvader.
I like that DKs have Runeforging and don’t need enchants on their weapons. Enchants are so expensive. I like that the Runeforges are unique.
As a blood DK I feel invincible. I can’t wait until I try arenas or PVP.
I would gank lowbies with my DK.
I like the unique mount models Archerus Deathcharger and Winged Steed of the Ebon Blade.
DKs walk on water with Path of Frost and this toon will be a fisherman. The ability may also help you win the fishing contest.
I always wanted Platekini transmog sets.
I wish the lore would continue. Its like everything stopped in Northend. What are the Knights of the Ebon Blade doing right now? I could imagine them having epics battles in Icecrown against the remaining Scourge. They must really be trying for the Super Simian Sphere. They must have a bank alts bank filled with Frostweave Cloth.
That’s my take on #DeathKnightWeek.
‘Til next time…
