Alt Appreciation – Death Knight Week

Laeleiweyn has proposed an EXCELLENT idea of celebrating all that is alts by introducing a celebration of the different classes in WoW. Yes I know I used celebration twice in that sentence (eeek, literary meltdown!) but there is no other way to describe this CELEBRATION!!

Class Week

Now, you know us… we have LOTS of alts and all of the classes between us, so this will be fun!!

Let’s start with the Death Knight then shall we? Mrs B doesn’t have one (I tried and really didn’t like it!) but Mr B’s DK is close to his heart:

I’ve been playing this DK for nearly 2 years and he was the first DK I levelled to end-game. I really don’t like the DPS specs on the Death Knight class – personal taste – but as a tank? I’m in love. I really enjoy how versatile it is – self heals, damage mitigation and the ‘hero’ feel of this class. I solo warbringers really easily and never worry about healers keeping me up in instances. My favourite thing ever? Being able to summon your own minion army every ten minutes!!! I’ve tried other tanking classes (most recently a warrior), but I always end up swapping to DPS as it’s just not as awesome as the DK šŸ™‚

It’s only unfortunate that I detest tanking LFR, so I’ve only geared him to 508 with the help of loot specialisation (which is awesome by the way!). He kind of just sits around, mining occasionally, but not doing much…. He defintely needs a flex raiding team!

  1. Ack, I too have been doing LFR in my “DPS spec” starting this week. I say “DPS spec” because I do pretty awful DPS, I don’t know the rotation, and all my gear is tanking gear. (To the random people in those LFR’s; I’m kind of sorry that you had to drag me through…) I have tanked LFR on my monk, but that was with a whole group of people from my guild, so it was “safe”.

    Happy you liked my idea about appreciating the alts. šŸ™‚

  2. Well I haven’t enjoyed my DK as much. I’m getting back into WoW, but I think I’m going to stick with just playing my Paladin (my favorite class).

  3. I’ve been reading a lot about Dk’s this week šŸ™‚ and so many mention that in tanking spec they love their dk. I love his transmog, it looks great.

  4. DK is the one class I’ve shied away from constantly. I started one, *yonks* ago (female worgen) and deleted her less than 2 weeks later. Too complicated for me. (Although Mistweaver Monks are just as complicated with differing energy/mana resources with chi/tea etc – but then I’m predisposed towards healing. Not that I don’t appreciate a good DK tank though – like you say – with all those self-heals!
