    What was your favourite patch for playing DKs?

    Same as the title.

    What was your favourite patch and why?

    Was it because of PVE, PVP or something else?

    My favorite spec was always the spec least played. I somewhat like being the underdog.

    Hell yeah! That would have been early in the expansion, during 3.0.X. It was so nice just hitting like a truck while ignoring diseases. Blood DPS was just plain awesome, period.

    The launch of Wrath was my favorite patch for DKs. The class was new, I was trying to figure out how things worked and there was a real sense of learning and progression. The DK community was really alive - sharing ideas, tips and tricks. And the PvP was amazing!

    3.0 was a very fun patch for me raid-wise due to the idea that I was playing a new class and gearing it up. There was also the constant feeling throughout the expansion that you shared a connection to the Lich King. Wrath was a great time to be a Death Knight!

    But, I'm very biased in favor of the Wrath DK model. I fell out of love with the class when the rune mechanic changes went live in patch 4.0, and I've never been able to quite regain my feelings for them.

    3.3 or 3.2 as Unholy in PvP. Used to absolutely wreck face and love it

    For those that did PvP, probably the first PvP season in Wrath where they could just macro ' /castrandom ' and get to 1800+ without even looking at their screen...

    Favorite patch? It depends on the spec, I tried all three in Wrath. To put it simply, I really enjoyed my DK before Cataclysm changed the class. Honestly, OP numbers and mechanics (Come back as a ghoul to kill whomever killed you, lol) aside, from a design perspective I feel like the class played much better overall in Wrath, than anytime after Patch 4.0.

    Probably 5.2, where unholy was superior for the first time in quite a long time.

    Cant remember when but i miss the freedom of being able to play dk as tank frost, tank blood or tank unholy, as well as a melange of dif dps specs. So many choices.

    Back in WoTLK, blood dps was so OP.

    I played DK after they nerfed you rezzing as a ghoul when you die. I actually played Blood DPS and I LOVED it to death. It was a PVP monster while leveling up and I could do something basically every GCD. It was the most engaging spec/class I have ever played and I think I played more PvE on my DK in that patch than in my entire history of playing WoW.
