WotLK Death Knight Changes – Build 9038

Lots of solid changes in all 3 trees for death knights in this most recent build. I really like the way the class is headed for both its DPS and tanking roles. One of the most talked about issues with the class has been its inability to function at the same level as other tanks.

WotLK Death Knight Changes

Lots of interesting changes here, more than anything it just looks like buffs across the board. All in all the class is really coming together nicely.
