Death by Death Knight

As you may be able to tell by the title, this is gonna be another one in a string of class columns. I know I said that I would do leveling columns and Cata class changes, by those are boring. In this series, we will look at the various ways each class kills you- generally by each tree, one at a time.

So Death Knights- Blood, Frost and Unholy.

Blood: This spec isn't anything too extreme. It focuses on a lot on draining your life away from you. The way I see it happening is that the DK jumps from his flying mount and begins his assault. He drains your life away, the blood rushing up his blade and soaking into his skin. Eventually, though you do your best to burn him, he heals too quickly and you lose to much health to carry on.

Frost: When facing a frsot DK, you die quickly and relatively painlessly. He charges at you, freezing you in place. He continues to blast you with ice, frost and rime. All the while he is cutting at your limbs with his two weapons. While normally it would be very painful, the cold has numbed you and your responses are sluggish.

Unholy: By far the worst death by a DK. This monster waits behind a rock, or in a bush for you to ride by. When you do, he rips you from your mount to face him. An army of ghouls surround him, but they quickly move to position themselves around you. The bite and gnaw on your limbs while your foe fills your essence with diseases. Finally, you succumb to the rot and decay. (While all specs have access to diseases, Unholy focuses on them).
