So what does a Blood DK actually play like?

So by now, you've seen the talents and the spells. You've theorycrafted. But what does a blood DK actually look like in action? I've taken some time out of my busy leveling schedule this morning to show you. - Edit: Link updated. My web host took a shit. New link should now be working on filefront.

If you like Vimeo better, you can also find it here.

This was my build.

Great video, thanks for posting. Do you know if the Blizzard folks are at all concerned that 90% of Deathknights are going to be Blood Elves?

Very nice video, the class play style is very entertaining to watch with impressive damage.

Now I can only hope that it preform as good in PvP.

Maso said...

I'm so excited for DK's. I signed up for beta and hope I get in. Maybe we can meet up sometime in-game and discuss it. :P

Hands down man this is amazing. If it's alright by you I'm going to feature this video and anything else you got on Death Knights specifically on Spooncraft.

It's a little more than a dream now to finally get back to why I play this game, your footage of the DK class in play has pretty much validated my hopes :D

Do what you like. It's Blizzard's game, not mine. I'm just trying to do people a favor and show them what they've been wanting to see. I'll be making more demos tonight of frost abilities, as well as unholy.

I'm trying to figure out good death knight talents for each spec without playing the class yet. Test out these specs if you can.

Frost - This spec seems like I am a retard. I have never played a Death Knight.

Leiah have you seen or heard for sure one way or another if we are going to be able to change our rune config from 2/2/2 to other things?

Leiah said...

Actually I have not. Then again, I haven't really asked, either. I'll find out for you guys.

The talent spec is in the post.

Ben said...

Oke thanks for posting this. Great video.

Can you please post the general ability/DPS cycle your using in that video? Thanks!

Adrian said...

What is the main attack that you use? I was assuming it was Blood Strike, but I see your spec has 0/3 in Improved Blood Strike.

The Doobster said...

These are awesome! Thanks for posting them.

Any chance you can post a frost leveling video? I'd love to see how it goes.

Zarkharaan said...

Absolutely mindblowing. Cheers for the video, you've made me even more overexcited about the beta and strengthened my resolve to play a Death Knight.

Dan said...

Very nice videos, especially this one since I am thinking about going Blood as well.

However, what UI mod were you using that told you all those fun things like how much your worms were healing for and when runes were ready etc?
