    Strongly leaning towards Necrolords because AL looks good for PVP. I also was considering trying to push for Mythic Raiding in SL after having my first taste of it again in 8.3 since WoD and missing it and friends moving that way, so if Night Fae ends up being broken, maybe I'll head that way.

    Short summary, whichever is best for PVP/PVE. Not even slightly looking forward to it.

    Going DW frost (more open to oblit than BOS) so I am thinking Night Fae or vampires.

    There are many people who would be a white placeholder block with no animations of it meant doing the most damage.

    When it comes to DPS - yes.

    The best or most damage or most fun. Haven’t looked at them yet. My desktop got hacked. Or my laptop rather. I need a new one. Probably origin pc. Yeet.

    Maldraxxus for the sweet tmog for sure.

  12. #112
    I want to go Maldraxxus for lore and theme and general appearance, but I've always loved 2H obliterate crit frost and the nightfae ability makes it cleave. That seems so strong in BGs.

    So that's that

    seems a bit neckbeard.. i think you are missing the point with covenants. combine these ideas a) they will balance over time b) there's somewhat of a covenant lock-in c) the actual DPS gain compared to all other factors is smaller than your arm muscles d) thematics probably contributes to more fun than you'll get from epeen growth from a .01 diff (games are for fun right)

    the real answer is Night Fae.. because DK's weakest point is mobility, and the power you gain from fixing that weakness over-all beats everything. you'll be where you need to be to do whatever it is you need to do sooner, in the more optimal window, and more often.

    I honestly don't care about "themes" or whatever. Hell, I don't even transmog my characters because I don't care how they look. I just play for the challenge and to push myself to be better. That's it.

    I swore after doing the "join the Night Fae" quest thing on Beta I swore I'd never put myself through that again... Venthyr for me.

    Except it is not a .01 difference?

    And balancing may take quite some time to reach that number if it ever does.

    And yes there are acutally people who care about their own performance. And for many of them this is more important than transmog and the like.

    I will experience the abilities while leveling and make a choice after that. I play super casual and even if you don't i believe you'll be alright if you raid mythic in a not top 100 guild environment.

    Fully expect them to nerf over the top utilities and advantages as they do anyway.

    I'm going with all 4 on 4 different characters.
    My greatest fear is that one day, my MMO-Champion ignore list will run out of space.

    Still torn between Night Fae and Venthyr. I like the NF movement ability rather than the DK DnD benefit as I’m planning on playing Frost and the Rune usage, even though not a big deal. DnD doesn’t really seem to fit the Frost playstyle and seems to have been included because Blizzard forgot Frost when making the class ability.

    Venthyr adds an ability, but it’s no different from DnD being added in minus not having to use a rune for it. It still has decent movement increase. The main attraction are the soulbinds from Nadjia look amazing.

    Will decide after I play for a little bit I guess.
