Death Knight
Tank, Damage
Heralds of Doom

When the Lich King’s control over his death knights was broken, his former champions found their new purpose as Knights of the Ebon Blade. After Bolvar Fordragon donned the helm to keep the undead Scourge contained, he called forth a new generation of death knights to join the Ebon Blade's cause.

Class Information

Death Knights engage their foes up-close, supplementing swings of their weapons with dark magic that renders enemies vulnerable or damages them with unholy power. They drag foes into one-on-one conflicts, compelling them to focus their attacks away from weaker companions. To prevent their enemies from fleeing their grasp, death knights must remain mindful of the power they call forth from runes, and pace their attacks appropriately.

To protect themselves and their fellows from death in battle, death knights gird themselves in heavy armor and parry attacks with their blades.
Melee Damage
Death knight runeblades are empowered with dark magic; they can expend the power of their runes for vicious attacks.
