They may be slower than all the fan sites to release info, but when they do put up pages, my do they make them pretty. Blizzard has updated their official Wrath of the Lich King page with some more information on the Death Knight class, including discussion of their class role and some sketches of their capabilities. This is nothing we haven't already seen, from that time a week or so ago when every site except us got invited to Blizzard HQ a few weeks back, but if you missed that, here's the highlights:
- All you need to be able to create a DK is to have a character of level 55. This allows you to create one DK per realm, on any realm(s) you choose. If you're on a PvP realm, the DK must be the same faction that you're already playing.
- DKs start at level 55, and can be made in any race you want (subject to PvP realm faction restrictions).
- The DK can tank for 5-mans and raids; Blizz claims that "his or her damage output while tanking will be respectable."
- DKs can also spec for DPS, using both melee and magic.
