WoW Editorial - Heroic Classes: Truly Heroic?

I'm Holdin' Out for a Hero

With the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King (WotLK) expansion, World of Warcraft (WoW) players will gain access to Blizzards first foray into making a "Heroic Class". This first hero class is going to be the much talked about Death Knight. What makes a class heroic though? With very little having been given away, what should we (or should we not) expect? Maybe most importantly, should the class be considered a heroic class, or just a new class?

Here's my take on it. I would like everything in place the way Blizzard has described it so far, but with one big change. When you complete the quest, your character should die off to become the Death Knight! They could even keep the new level point the same, explaining it as a restart in your learning process. I would like to see the level be 70 though, as that way you can move directly into the WotLK content again, as you will have just completed it, why revert all the way back to the Burning Crusade.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
