Back to the Death Knight

I can’t really explain just how much I missed being a Death Knight. For me it’s not the power, it’s not the name, it’s just the underlying creepiness of the class as a whole.

If you can’t tell by the name of the blog, I’m a fan of creepy.

Gesitig is practically a poster child for creepy and I’m loving it. Running around, slicing mobs in half, just a gal and her ghoul. Life is good.

So Azmim was questing in Stranglethorn Vale so I figured I’d help her out. She’s a Priest so she just attracts trouble, I mean lets face it, mobs will walk through walls to get at a Priest. While out there killing the piraty lads, I felt bad as we were about to start killing in the same direction as a Troll Hunter out that was out questing himself.

Since I could take on the whole beach all on my lonesome (with the help of my ghoul of course) I figured it was time to earn some Karma points and ask if the Hunter wanted to join Azmim and I so he’d get credit for the kills as opposed to angrily waiting on re-pops.

Surprisingly enough the Troll Hunter was actually ok to run with. He tried to take stuff out along with me and Azmim and I helped him out on a couple other quests as well. He even ran back to give Azmim a hand after she made a few friends… Which is code for “uh oh the Priest has aggro”.

It’s kind of weird to be back on Uldum for a matter of hours and I’m adding someone to my friends list. Can’t say it’s going to be like that every day but who knows.

I also know that I need to do a little leveling with Geistig, she’s 75% to 73. Ah only 7 levels away from 80. My that’s refreshing hehe. I know they’ll be slow going, but it takes a load off.

Oh and on a PTR note I’ve been reading about the Dual Wielding nerf coming up in patch 3.1. Well it’s not surprising that Blizz wants to nerf it, I just don’t get why they give us the option to do so and then hamstring it. Seems pretty weird to me and I know weird, trust me. I really only had time to test out a Frost spec and an Unholy Spec. I also haven’t glyped Gestig very well, nor is she level 80 so the picture I gathered is by far not a glowing example.

I can say that out of the two trees though, the Frost tree was getting consistently higher numbers per hit when Dual Wielding than the Unholy spec. The numbers weren’t consistent though with what I was seeing when I switched over to a two hander. Bleaaarg. Seriously, I just don’t get why people insist on shredding my favorite things. Oh well. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to get Geistig up to 80 and test out the uber DPS Unholy/Frost spec before the patch. After the patch, well I’m gonna have a LOT of research to do to make Dual Wielding viable let alone competitive.

There’s some folks that are worried that Death Knights will get not only get taken down a notch, but well several notches. Honestly, I’m not too worried if Blizz beats Death Knights black and blue with the nerf bat. I will probably still play a Death Knight, I just love the class. Then again I like all of the more fringe classes, Shamans, Shadow Priests, Affliction Warlocks, all of the class and talent combinations that are pretty well frowned upon at end game. Or well used to be, now Shamans and Shadow Priests are doing pretty darned well. In the end though no one really knows what’s going to happen until it does so I’m not going to sweat it. I’m just going to have fun and maybe put my two cents in once in a while.

Yeah miss elf, I’m not a huge fan of the Outlands either. I LOVE Northrend though. Leveling through the Outlands is actually a lot faster than it used to be, and with a Death Knight in all blues, it goes REALLY fast. Ok, well not for me, but I’m a slacker. 😀

I really want to make a DK. The starting quests are awesome and I’ve played through them several times now.

My problem is I get stuck the second I hit Outland. I can’t stand Outland, to say I hate it with unjustifiable amounts of fury is an understatement. I hate the zones, the quests, the instances.

A couple of months ago I finished levelling my “last alt ever!!!” on my main realm and now I see this post and want to commit to levelling a DK :(. Awwww.

I don’t think you have to worry a out the nerf bat for a long time. 3.1 won’t be out till the end of April or May time frame. Just like Sunwell, it tales about 3 months to test this type of live expansion.
