    Melding powers in a mortal like this in such a 50/50 fashion doesn't really make sense.

    They rose a lot of Death Knights, you even kill one or two during your death knight "training".

    but now it could be just an elite squad, we know that blizzard give 2 shits about numbers on those things
    We have void elves, so that much is true, yes.
    I did a Necromancer thing. Check it out! All feedback welcome!
    Update 08/17: I changed how the Bone spec's golem mechanic works, as well as some other minor changes.
    I also did a Bard thing! Questions, comments and ideas, all welcome!
    Update 09/02: Apparently the mods decided to merge my class concept thread with an existing one.

    why not? the titans can also be corrupted with void, they can be undead, or become "demons" or at lest fel infused.

    we mix void and light on our weapons in 7.3. those guys died and the Lk resurrect then, can't see a problem.

Heck we know that the LK was on the broken isles, even some nightborne wretch could be explained and it wouldn't be as stupid.
    Draenei DKs make sense because Draenei were present during the Northrend expedition that took place during prepatch to try to halt all the fucking Andorhal grain going to every capital city.
    Everybody complains that they have to grind for ONE allied race when they have pathfinder unlocked. I've unlocked four without pathfinder. What's your excuse?

    Panda DKs, I could see. And people thinking this is somehow bad lore are really bizarre. The LK has continued to be active so why the hell would he not be instructing people to make new DKs.
    Void Elves can be Warlocks, I don't see why not Death Knights as well, unless lore-wise all Void Elf Warlocks use void/shadow (Affliction) magic just like all Forsaken (and I assume Void Elf as well) Priests are Shadow lorewise.

    Lightforged however I agree. If they are being raised through the Lich King, we can't even use Calia as an example of a Lightforged undead, since she was a special case. I feel like trying to raise a Lightforged through regular Scourge necromancy should either fail, revert the subject to a regular Draenei, or just cause some violent reaction (resulting in failure too). Or maybe they'll just have Lightforged Death Knights be in extra pain due to a body infused with the Light being animated through Shadow magic, because the edge wasn't enough yet with regular Death Knights.

    Blizzard had quite the boner for giving Death Knights to every race until races that presented gameplay difficulties like Pandaren and Allied Races were added, but I don't feel like remaking the starting zone to allow for new DK combos is an excuse to give them to races like Lightforged. God knows Lightforged could use more class variety, but I don't think Death Knights fit them at all.

    Anyway this is all speculation for now. It's not like anything is confirmed yet. But here's hoping!

    Yes, Warlocks use void magic as part of their repertoire, but they aren't imbued with the magic as part of their existence. They wield it. Death Knights are infused with death magic. We have yet to see if it is even possible to be 1) imbued with void magic to the extent a VE is and 2) also imbued with death magic to the extent all DKs are. And if that actually is possible, why would that not just create some sort of impossible mega superman who is untethered to a single reality and beyond death? They'd be nigh invincible and certainly on a level way above their compatriots or mere mortals.

    The new expansion should be associated with the new Lich King (Bolvar) so we can see new races with DK classes

    Actually it’s listed in the preorder bonuses for shadowlands, so they will be playable.
