Two, yes two more videos for you:

And yes, one of them is frost. No, deep frost does not cater well to leveling on it's own, as it does not have the self-sustainability required to chain pull, as blood or 17blood/xx unholy. To get the real juicy stuff in frost, you really have to go all the way down the tree, so this lends itself to an unfriendly talent tree for leveling and grinding.

However,

Frost has some amazing control and burst abilities, as you will see in the videos comments. It will have some incredible use in group pvp. Imagine being able to instantly cast an AOE Freezing trap on everyone around you, that lasts for 10 seconds in pvp, and 26 in PVE. It's ridiculously good, especially when you remember that you can bloodboil off any diseases that may have otherwise interrupted the freeze effect. How awesome is it that our AOE taunt also has a PvP use? Major kudos there!


Also, I got a little frustrated with the slower pace of frost grinding (which is really a spec for group situations, and not solo), so I respecced back to 56 points in blood and took out my aggression on a host of mobs in the bone wastes. I won't say much more, but I think you'll be very pleased with how DKs are performing.

Enjoy.

I think you can download the HQ version off of the vimeo site at the bottom right section for each video's page.

what, in you mind, from what you have seen so far, is the better spec for leveling? The 56 blood or 17/xx/xx. And you would you mind post both spec's.

zyphoria said...

oh ok :) thanks, will try that

ColdFire said...

What if any kind of rotation for spells did you use in the blood video? ALso was that build pretty much 56 points all into blood?

Also forgot to ask what is the white glow around your hands and sword from i assume one of the runeforge runes. Also any word on rune cusomization yet or if it is even in or will be.

Id just to say thankyou for making these vids, showing out how good each spec currently look.

and i must say that this new blood spec vid, while its looks dangerous, its not as "nerf" worthy as the first blood vid was, by that i mean we all were going OMG when you took on that elite like it was nothing in anderhorl.

now a question, how good is ghoul compared to say a lock pet or hunter pet? stronger weaker or about the same?

Hey for some reason it says that none of ur videos exist anymore, and i wanted to see your frost one :(

Vooks said...

I love you. Keep these vids comin

I noticed you bandaging there. Did you have to level up first aid all the way, or do DK's start with some professions already leveled to match them?

Maijtika said...

The videos don't work anymore =(

Wow, Death Knights look SO cool! Can't imagine what Goldshire's gonna look like after WotLK comes out. Haha. :P

I get a "Sorry, there is a problem loading your video" from all the vids. Vimeo doesn't like me :(

Wow, just wow. I love the AoE freeze effect in frost. And the Insta 2-3k AoE damage while they were all frozen was godly.

I think that blood or blood/unholy will the be best for leveling. But, like you said frost will be great in group pvp.

Thanks again Leiah for the vids. Keep them coming please.

Is it possible for you to post your talent spec for blood. You've inspired me to make a DK.

It's deathcoil. Has no cd, 1 unholy rune cost and requires runic power.

Death Coil requires only RP it doesn't need any Rune.
Looking forward to your next video! :)
