What I like most is probably the runes+rp system, that I don't have to worry about a permanent pet (DW Frost) and I only need to deal with 2 dots. The latter two points are also why I disliked my first max level char so much (a warlock).
Because I liked the scourge way too much in WC3 and was totally psyched when they announced they were doing a death knight class. Instantly benched my main on release and played him/her (changed several times) ever since.
Even if i ever wanted to change mains I couldn't because I know I'll never play any class as well as i do play DK.
Was because blizzard ruined paladins with this shitty holy power. I went onto playing range classes, but grew tired of them during cata.
Made a DK and hit 85 the day mop was release (35 mins before it went live) so decided to level that to 90 to tank raids for irl friends.
Just stuck with it, as it was getting gear and was a strong toon to go and solo old content.
Because the addon I have shouts in Scorpion's voice "Come Here" Wen i Death Grip lmfao! =]
Was the original term "Come Here"? or "Get Over Here?"
On a side note; I've always touched and teased my DK. Leveling him to 70 when the cap was 80, then to 80 when the cap was 85, now just hit level 85 with him last night, lmao. I think it's time to finally push to 90. I'm more for PvP and frost just seems so nice these days.
Because I'm the type of person that doesn't even give playing a game a chance, I go right for the cheat codes.
So you play mage and warlock?
I would just say dk fits for me, i can barely play another class, it somehow feels either boring or weird. The dk has also a kind of uniqueness i never would want to give up, like soloing, a single target cleave (howling blast ftw), a dot spec, dw and 2h viable a tank with a fucking 2h weapon. I also like the darkness and enjoy playing something with dark magic. I was also ever fascinated by meele casters and the dk is basically THE dark melee caster.
Some features i like are new, some are old, some to many are gone, but i still enjoy it the most, it offers enough differences within the spec making it hard to get bored. And while it may lacks some utility it isn't such an annoying boosted up lol class with thousands of abilities which sometimes just feels stupid.
How is that different than DG, unless they're on a roof?
Because you can't use it on bosses, anything that can't move, or like you said is in a place such as a roof. I mean for PvE purposes mostly though. It probably wouldn't be used in PvP anyway since DG is often used to interrupt players.
