I'll be making a death knight, certainly, but I'm not sure if it will be my main. Warrior is currently top contender.

From what I've seen, the play is kinda boring. Sure, I'll roll one till mid-Outland at the least, maybe take it to 80, but I doubt I'll be making it my main.

guys, you should realize that you don'T go "all points in frost" for tanking, or "all points in unholy" for AoE dps. Deathknight is strongest when specced in two trees.
Sure if i'd go tanking i'D end up 40-50 in frost but rest would most likely be mixed with unholy and blood.

almost every tier has one pvp,dps and one tanking talent. with a few talents being mandatory though.

That generally applies to every class.

Probably going blood while levelling, and then unholy\blood for pvp at 80. Should I reach that far.

I am also looking to drop a number of my characters from 'proper' use. I have too many. Mostly likely on Shadowsong I will level my priest + mage (though waiting for a bit before I do) probably going to drop my rogue and warrior.

Well Deekay is up and running. I must admit the actual start and run through the quests was a lot of fun. I won't spoil it for anyone else, but I will say this - try it if you haven't already. The quest line is amazing, albeit a little sick (imo). Wiping out villagers who screamed 'I have kids, let me live' sat a little off on my stomach. On hitting Stormwind and being shunned by the guards, spat on and having fruit thrown at me, I felt a tad offended :P

Blizzard have done an amazing job on the start area, and the FREE epic mount at 55 is SQUEEEEEE! The gear you get is really lovely to look at, but it's superceeded by Outland greens (checked the AH and cried a little). Going to keep the set anyway!

Well I deleted Deekay because I don't like Gnomes and it was a stupid name :P So if anyone wants that name go for it.

My new Death Knight is called Eurynomous (Tauren), Udderflicker felt wrong.

Are there any guilds (casual raid) that are looking for DK's horde side? i made my own thread but no interest :) so thought id post here.

even social spots would be great, sorry if the post is off topic.

Also, somehow I can't really be bothered to level my DK now ;F just want to get me good ol' shammy to 80 and then see what will happen.

I dont know anything about deathknight theorycrafting, but after reading the wiki on deathknight.info I get the impression that pure AP is better for enchants/gems than str ??

I must be wrong about that I think, but 25th november's deathknight has stacked loads of pure AP enchants/gems so Im quite unsure

http://deathknight.info/wiki/index.php?title=Mechanics

Specker
21-11-2008, 06:17 PM
Yeh i was thinking that aswell, on my warrior i'm used to the str over AP rule, but then i have also seen other "highend" DKs stacking stre :< Least haste isn't as important or even abit crap for most specs, i never did like the straight haste rating, always prefered procs for the noticeable change ;p

edit: Maybe it's me or does it just seem logical to stack the str? I mean with increase benefit from BoK plus the 1 str = 2AP rule going for DKs aswell. Could just be that those gems where the only ones availible at the time?

Gwynin
21-11-2008, 06:23 PM
Im just confused about it cos they do say that 1 str = 2 AP, which makes me think that str is the way to go. But then I go check nihi..ehh SK.. ehh 25th's DK and he has shitloads of pure AP, and Im kinda like uhm yea so what now? :D

I meant this dude btw : http://armory.wow-europe.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Magtheridon&n=Perished

EDIT, meh now he's tank'ish spec ofcos

Specker
21-11-2008, 08:24 PM
Yeh i think it might just be due to a lack of the blue gems being found yet, I mean, unless there is a talent that i have missed (which wouldn't make sense anyway) then there is no reason for AP to be > Str right? If it helps, http://armory.wow-europe.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Silvermoon&n=Macc%C3%AC ;p
