aye, as its the first hero class i can see the LFG channel flooded with them, meh
Anyhoo, quick summary of the new info:Death Knights
Remember all the talk of an epic quest to unlock the DK? well thats been scrapped. All that's required is for the player to have a character reach 55 on one server. After that, the Death Knight option becomes available, though players will be restricted to one per server. Starting level at 55, any race.
Death Knight can turn dead teammates into ghouls, now that should be fun. A Death Knight's main raid function is either a tank or melee dps, closest comparison melee-wise is to a fury warrior, great, more melee to contest with Enhance shamy / fury warriors / ret pala's Raiding
Now this is HUGE
The raid dungeons in Wrath of the Lich King would all have 10-man and
25-man versions, with substantially better gear available to anyone who could organize the 25-man.
There will be no attunements or keys to obtain, and you won't be locked out of a 25-person instance if you decide to attempt the 10-person version, and vice-versa.Flying Mounts
"We do have a plan for flying mounts, and letting players unlock their flying mounts at level 77 is going to be acceptable to the players once they get there.
There'll be either a quest or a trainer that you can visit to unlock your flying mount which we'll expect you to use for your last three levels. You can use your Outland flying mount, and we will have new flying mounts for you to get as well."Darlaran
(the new city in Northrend, currently in Alterac Mountains, that large purple protective magic dome, inside there in case you didn't know
"Once Dalaran moves, what's going to be there?"
"Something! The idea behind that is that the mages have gotten together and literally dug up Dalaran out of the ground, and have moved it off to Northrend.
There'll be something there and it'll be pretty cool-looking. We haven't actually made it yet, but we have some concepts for what it's going to look like, and it looks cool"
Other quick bits of news,
Northrend is much larger than Outland
All five Dragonflights will appear in the zone Dragonblight
The Badge of Justice system will continue in Northrend, but there will be new tokens to act as Badges and be returned for loot.
