Will Death Knights Rule the Land?
There has been much conversation and consternation regarding Death Knights over the last little while since additional information was released. There are several things players are worried about but the big three are: Death Knights taking over tanking, Death Knights taking over PvP, and a mass proliferation of Death Knights in the game.
In this weeks editorial Byron "Messiah" Mudry gives you a run down of these three main issues that people are up in arms about, and then provides his take on them and the Death Knight class in general.
The last of the big discussion points about the Death Knights is that there will just be too many of them. This is based on the fact that Blizzard has said that anyone with a level 55 character will be able to create a Death Knight that will start at level 55. It is very hard to argue with the logic that there will be too many of them. This is a huge issue as I can easily see Death Knights becoming the most numerous class in the game above level 70.
