    FR though...I'm probably going to become more jaded if there aren't any.

    I'll reserve judgment until release, but there's not even a blank space or anything on PTR so I wouldn't hold my breath. If nothing else though, I hope we get some alternate hair colors for DKs, like black/blue/silver/green etc. That was always one of my favorite features about them.
    I really liked the the dull grays.

    There's still a few week until 8.3 is out on the 14th, so they could still update the PTR with them. But seriously, not having new skins for them would just be dumb

    I could see them waiting on Pandaren specifically to update all of their visuals at the same time.

    Since they just introduced Allied Races, it would make sense to have their DK options released ASAP.

You can also look up the thread and see that was answered a few post ago...
    Yeah, I mean, I realize after the fact that these skins were not especially death knight themed, but the fact that allied races were getting new skins for death knights does imply, at least, that they are getting special skins for death knights.

    I would be frankly pretty surprised if they went to the trouble of giving them new skins... and they weren't death knight themed. Like, what would the point even be?

    I'm kind of worried that Allied race DKs won't be available on the 14th and they'll delay it somehow

    I think they just won't add specific skins. They will just give them blue eyes and call it a day

    Except you can make them on the PTR, every allied race. They will drop on the 14th.

    And yeah the lack of 'actually dead' skins kinda sucks. The frigid white skin color is my favorite to use with DKs and none of the allied races have it.

    Pity. I hoped for some cool variations of glowing tattoos.

    Same here man. I especially like the sickly green if I want to RP an unholy DK. That being said, I guess one could argue these corpses are fresh so they won't decay like the originals. Feels like a cop out though.

    Off topic but ... Allied races (and other races) DK are created after the attack of Sylvanas in ICC ?
    If yes, will wee see Torghast above ICC in 8.3 ?

    It’s sheer laziness.
    But I mean, look at the Nightborne models. They’ve always invested the least possible effort into most allied races (excluding Kul Tirans and Zandalari).

    This is one of those instances where I agree that it feels lazy. The DKs should have the same breadth of options as the originals, instead they're basically just the allied races with blue eyes and pitchbent voices.

    Yeah the 3 skin colors per allied race would be some work, but Blizz knows what they're signing up for when they commit to this stuff.

    I'd like it if Zandalari got bone tattoos like Bwonsamdi has. It probably won't happen though

    Always be prepared for the worst with the current Blizzard

    They'll prolly make a statement after the patch hits and put them in 9.0

    Exactly. A frostmourne rune for them.

    That's... a fairly solid argument. I hadn't considered that.

    Even still, the options would be nice for sure.

    If they announced the 'dead' skins are coming later, that would be fine. 'In a future patch' beats 'never'.
