We still don't have a release date for Wrath of the Lich king, but I suspect we will in the very near future. From what I've seen any folks are chomping at the bit to get started on their Death Knights. Blizzard's been handing out tidbits of information on the class. Many players have been dreaming about the gender and race combinations they'll select for the Death Knight, or even how to play the class. Aside from that, what can we do to be ready for our first heroic class?
Rizelle of Gurubashi is already preparing herself for the arrival. In a thread entitled "I'm already playing my Death Knight," she described the actions she's taking:
- Farmed enough materials to powerlevel Engineering/First Aid/Cooking to 350, and farmed a few stacks of each precious ore (silver, gold, truesilver) to smelt for Mining levels (even though i'll probably have to do some back mining anyway).
- Farmed up quite a bit of rep items to turn in upon hitting Outland. So far i'm up to 300x Unidentified Plant Parts, 150 Arakkoa Feathers, 80 Firewing Signets.
I'm sure that she'll be all set for trade skills and rep items by the time WOTLK hits the market. Until reading this thread, I hadn't even considered the possibility of saving materials for trade skills and reputations. Is anyone else getting ready for their Death Knight?
