MMORPG.com World of Warcraft Correspondent Marie Brazeil writes this voerview of the Death Knight hero class in Blizzard's World of Warcraft.
I know for a fact that a lot of WoW subscribers had stopped playing a good while before the launch of The Wrath of the Lich King expansion. I was actually one of them! I had grown very tired of the guild drama and silly mistakes while taking down Akil'zon (the eagle boss) in Zul'Aman. And eventually I just decided to try other things. Warhammer was just coming out at the time and I hopped over for a couple of months. But eventually, the call of Warcraft started to seep into my being and as the launch of the new expansion neared, I found I couldn't resist the urge to finally play a new class in WoW, the Death Knight.
Now please understand, I'm not one of those players that picks a class and lives and dies by it. I have played every single class in WoW. Some I liked more than others, like the warrior, shaman, and warlock. But I played them all. And to tell you the truth, I never really found my niche. This led to toon hopping and many, many alts. Which ultimately led to boredom because of all the incessant leveling and grinding I had to do. I state this mainly because I really want you to understand that my opinion of the new Death Knight class is a meaningful one, since I have played them all extensively. With that said, I will go on to explain why the Death Knight really is a hero class.
