However, for players diving into their first MMO or even just switching classes, the basics of WoW's resources and stats -- otherwise known...

I'll be completely honest: If I were to describe the death knight update with three words, it would be these: We need more. PvP-focused death knights will likely be pleased with the new revealed skills, but for PvE death knights, all three hold little to no PvE applicability. The new rune system's ...

As is customary for the Cataclysm class previews, we get more details on all the changes death knights can expect in Cataclysm from our friendly neighborhood CMs and devs. Will there be a two-hander style for frost DKs? How will the new rune system play out? Will you have to spend runes on everythi...

As we said on the podcast this weekend, one of the most interesting things to come out of the Hunter Q&A last week was that vague about "long-term plans" to "[remove] the need for hunters to rely on a different resource system then mana." That one kind of came out of nowhere, and the answer was ...

Welcome to Lichborne, the Death Knight column, with your host, Daniel Whitcomb. On my first read-through of the Patch 3.2 Death Knight patch notes, I had to chuckle a bit.

Good Thursday morning, everyone. I'm sure by now that many of you rushed home from your midnight openings, installed the game, and started up a new Death Knight. Many others may, like me, be expecting to do that tonight after work or school, while others are looking at rolling a Death Knight in a ...

Horn of Winter is a Death Knight skill that was added in a recent build. Much like the Shaman's Strength of Earth Totem, this skill will give a strength and agility buff to nearby party or raid members -- 155 at the highest rank, to be exact. It has advantages over Strength of Earth to be sure. It...

I've been having fun with Wowhead's new Wrath of the Lich King talent calculators lately. Since I couldn't fiddle around with my favorite class' talents just yet, I decided to play with the Death Knight talent trees. Although I have yet to actually playtest the class (keeping my fingers crossed fo...
