Tier 11 Deathknight

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I came across this image of the Deathknight teir 11 armour set the other day.  How insane does this look?  Oh and no prizes for guessing where the screenshot came from haha!

To me this is the best looking tier set I’ve seen so far.  A close second would be the old bad ass Warlock set from the Burning Crusade.  I really can’t wait to see the Warrior tier 11 and I hope they manage to top this Deathknigh effort. The Warrior helm mmo champion managed to data mine looks pretty nice with the shards of rock sticking out of it. So here’s to hoping the whole set looks legend beyond comprehension.

I’m going to go through and stick up a few posts of the amour sets that have been data mined so far. (or armor sets for you Americans ;))

Posted by: | Comments (1)

The class changes for patch 4.0.1 are listed after the break guys. This is the main systems change before Cataclysm, none of the world itself is being changed yet. This is kinda like when wrath hit, the class systems were changed to bring them into line with the new content. Anyway enough of my blabbing, hit the read more to see the full statement by blizzard.

Or hit this link to MMO Champion for the full breakdown.

Wipe Insurance: Am I Prepared?

Posted by: | Comments (2)

Welcome to the first edition of Wipe Insurance, Waranvil.com’s new raiding column. This will be posted every monday, so make sure you come back every week for new strategies, tips and tricks! This week we are going to discuss when you are ready to raid. So you’ve just dinged 80 and all you’ve heard about since level 5 is endgame raiding – many people will tell you its where the real game is, you level up and may even do some raids at your level along the way. But entering the current endgame raiding is different. Theres tiers, caps, stat weights, enrage timers, gearscore, jerks, death knights in full tier 9 doing 2k dps (Theres a lot of them…), casual, hardcore, no-lifers, hard modes…its enough to make your head spin.

I don’t know whether it’s come to your attention, but Cataclysm is sliding towards us inch by inch, and Blizzard is giving us teaser on teaser. Azeroth is being re-done, and destroyed in the process, we’re getting flying mounts in the old world, all the classes are seeing significant updates, and, of course, we’re getting new race/class combinations. Of course, the day Cataclysm comes out, we’ll be drowning in Worgen and, to a lesser degree, Goblins. I’m betting we’ll see a fair few Tauren Paladins knocking about as well.

What’s got me thinking though, is wondering how deep the class changes are going to go. Blizzard have given a few hints and tips about what’s going to happen, but at this stage most of it is meaningless noise. That doesn’t stop us from being able to speculate and hope though, right? That’s what these guys were doing after a jaunt through Karazhan the other day:

Leaving The Game, Here Have My Gold.

Posted by: | Comments (0)

A couple weeks back as I was levelling an alt through Hillsbrad, when a level 71 Deathknight sends me a message.

Hey, I’m leaving the game do you want my gold?

Never in all the years I’ve played has anyone ever given me gold!  In fact its usually me giving out the gold to such choice characters as Kirioth (I’m sure he’ll only but agree).  So you can imagine, when I received this message I was in a state of shock.

Secrets of Ulduar

I don’t know about you folks, but I’m pretty excited about 3.1. Granted, since I’ve rerolled Priest and am only at level 70, I can’t take advantage of the new raid (although I might break out my Paladin for a sneak peak), but one thing I can take advantage of is the swathe of changes that have been made to my class, and of course the other classes. As we’ve said, Grim has also rerolled, bringing in his Mage, ditching his obsession with tanking for an obsession with massive numbers. He’s even gone so far as to respec Fire for levelling. Last night we were hacking up some corpses, and discussing the changes in 3.1, and the subject of Glyphs came up. I was complaining as usual about the lack of Discipline glyphs when Grim reminded me that we have a swathe of new glyphs arriving. So, filled with enthusiasm I headed onto Google and got looking for the glyphic goodness that would arrive with 3.1.

Read on after the break to see what we’re getting!

Death Knight Leveling Specs – Blood

“I wan level DK. Gimme best level spec plz! kthxbai!” -Random Forum Noob (Spelling intended)

I’ve seen those forum posts thousands of times.  Its not just specific to the Death Knight forums.  Its with all classes.  I challenge you now to visit the WoW Class Forums and not be able to identify at least one of these on the first page in each class forum.

My response for a question like this when pertaining to Death Knights is simple, “I don’t know”.

I’ve spent tons upon tons of gold in respecs on my DK and I can honestly tell you that no matter how you build your Death Knight you are going to have strength and weaknesses but it is all pretty viable.  I’m going to discuss the different options from a level 70 standpoint.  This is the point you should be now in Northrend and have began to understand the complexities of the your DK.

Lets continue after the break.
