One of the biggest reasons to have any interest in Blizzard's upcoming Wrath of the Lich King expansion is the addition of Death Knights as a hero class. The promise of hero classes is that they'll feel incredibly epic in their own unique way. So do they? The folks over at WoW Insider have had a chance to play through the Death Knight starting experience (apparently it's actually called that) and have their impressions up for those of you that must know the answer.

After reading through the write-up we have to admit that it sounds like Blizzard is keeping their word. Death Knights should be an epic experience for World of Warcraft players. It also sounds like this is some of Blizzard's best MMO designing to date. We know that's a mighty claim to make but it really does seem to be the truth. You can check out the bevy of information about Wrath coming from WoW Insider if you want to find other reasons to get excited for the second expansion.
