Who is going to make a DK ?!

Post  Ulalume on Wed Sep 17, 2008 2:22 am

So who is going to make a DK?! I'm totally obssesed right now with the new class. I can't wait to birth my nelf DK and get her ready to pvp as unholy and pve as a frost tank. I'm so excited I'm looking for a good name for her.

If you have a name in mind, make a level 1 alt and reserve it now. Otherwise, you'll be fighting for it on launch day.

If and when I make mine, he will be human. I wouldn't mind a draenai since they are the biggest charactres on our side, however I don't want to deal with repgrinds (hence why I'm going human)

However,I'm not making mine right away. Screw fighting with the other Death Knights on creation (even though they say the zone is instnaced) I'll worry more about making a level 80 badass shaman and druid.

I think I'll delete Elenn and turn her into my DK. >.> Did I mention Fury warriors suck against druids in pvp? Heroic Leap is pretty fun though. It gets me into all kinds of trouble!

I'm pretty sure you don't have to delete a character to get a DK, you just need a character over 55 to create one

nobody said anything about deletion. I think what I was trying to get across is that he should try rolling a tanking class so he understands what tanking is like.

You are correct though, that a level 55 character is the requirement.

I stand corrected, I thought you were talking about Mike's post.

However in Elenn's case, I don't think he want's to play as his warrior, I think he's always wanted a night elf death knight with the same name. His Fury Arms spec is the closest to rolling as that class before WotLK.

Mal tanking is no fun at all. The whole groups depends on you to get aggro, you have to mark, you have to be a 'leader', high repair bills, no cookies, and people like to backseat tank which is nerve wrecking and most annoying (pull this mob no pull that mob; quit moving, LOS GODDAMNIT, don't go behind the freaking pillar what the hell are you thinking). What I'm really trying to say here is that I monopolize the dungeon tanking position and weasel my way in to keeping it that way. JK Mal despite all of the trouble I get into, you learn alot about the raid mechanics and its thrilling and more challenging the standing back pew pewing (imo).

Bearform's got a point.

Tanking is way different than DPSing. Next to the healer, the tank is the has to be the most responsible for everyone around.

If you try it keep this in mind.

1.) Does your healer have mana? If so is it around 80%
2.) Can you generate more aggro, or no how to out aggro your DPS?
3.) Is Diamond or Omen or KTM installed?
4.) Do you have money to burn?

I have healed a little. It was fun when I did it. It's not so bad, but its stressful (as a shaman...long heals suck! Chain Heal ftw!) but as a tank...the game changes. I will say this though. The key thing about being a tank is "knowing the instance"

I'll go no further before I turn this post into a book.

Well, lemme add my two cents into this.

A tank is pretty much the runs ^&%$#, you stand in a spot and make sure the mob doesn't move. What you need to remember though, is that...Tanking is one of the hardest things to do. It's not like dps, cause you have to stay three steps ahead of your dps in Threat. And Twelve steps ahead of your healers, cause if they get adds..... Either A: You missed alot and just didn't have Aggro or B: The healer was over healing and deserved to die. *Meaning it wasn't the tanks fault*

Knowing the fight is what a tank needs to do. Either Read up on it or watch cool videos made by people for certain fights you know you're gonna have to tank.

Standing Still for 90% of Boss Fights:
Moving around as a tank is annoying for Melee DPS cause they also have to move when you move around. Just remember, the faster they burn him down, the less you have to hold his aggro Smile And the better loots you get.

The INfamous Line of Sight:
Line of Sight, *LOS* Is huge.....Remember, if you walk around an obstruction....you get no heals. Granted Healers should be rushing into burning buildings after you to heal you, however at some points the healers need to be outta range cause alotta bosses will cast random shadow bolts, or fireballs even Frost death rays or whatever at whoever is closest to them. Which in the end means Wipe.

If you ever have a question, ask. And yea, I am an aggro whore when it comes to the red bar cause unlike Druids tongue I only have 1 bar instead of three. Gotta give somethin some love Sad
We love ya id! Keep tanking damn it!

My name is Elenn and I have a drinking problem.

I only dance around b/c they run past me. I get healed b4 i have enough agrro on x. It's like a mili-second b4 I lacerate him i get healed and he runs off. And yes i am demo roaring; I would would swipe but most of the time one of the group is CC-ed thus it would piss Thorg off if i hit it (or he wouldn't realize I swiped it and would think he was doing something wrong, which always makes me chuckle).

Good advice both of you.

Key thing with being a tank is also rage. The idea of hit or be hit...well in the case of all rage building classes. You have to do some white damage at some point. Your abilities will be on cool down and your rage bar may be empty. Guess what, good old white damage time. Sometimes that's all it takes.

However, the one key thing that both forgot to mention is experience. Anyone can try tanking. It's a little daunting and scary at times, but you just have to go in and do it. I know we all could talk or type or draw or whatever to death what tanking is like, but until you try it...well.

*Waiting for Drisst or thinger to give maybe some insights on Pally tanking&

Which brings up my questions on how will deathknight tanking be accomplished in LK? Anyone readup or know?

at least you can hold your sheep. Although I'm half tempted to go back to Mana-Tombs but with Thorgal this time.

Half because I don't need the rep, I just want to see if the sheep break as fast as they did with our replacement from last night.

Well tanking as a paladin isn't that hard, as you can see I can do it as holy, well i thought that you just had to consecrate to hold agro, but i saw a prot paly that was good enough to where she didnt have to consecrate (aoe on floor) But its pretty simple because when you spec prot, you get a skill that increases threat gained by holy spells by like 75% or something like that, the only drawback is the mana problem, they cant tank w/o mana but they gain mana based on how much they get healed, i think paladins are great for tanking, but there is something that i don't know about that makes other tanks better i think
