As the general lull in information about Legion continues, players are largely left to their own devices in attempting to piece together an analysis of what the expansion might bring.
As is the case with the final tier of every expansion, we find ourselves in the midst of a lull.
When I first began writing this week’s column I seriously contemplated going with my original idea about gearing in Hellfire Citadel for DKs.
Before I begin today’s column: A sincere apology to all readers who have been patiently waiting for another installment in the Plaguebearer series.
With the recent end of arena season announcement, and the fact that the latest PTR build is marked as a release candidate, it’s pretty clear that Patch 6.2 is largely done with development and will go live shortly. As such, it’s time to turn our attention to the Tier 18 Death Knight set bonuses that will be obtainable from the Hellfire Citadel raid.
Looking for a new gaming challenge or an interesting angle on RP? Reddit user Avinaria has found one: playing a Death Knight who remains loyal to the Lich King rather than joining the Alliance or Horde.
Tanking in a massively multiplayer game like World of Warcraft is when certain classes (Monks, Death Knights, Warriors, Paladins and Druids, in the case of WoW) choose a specialization and perform a role that is intended to keep the monsters in a dungeon or raid focused on said tank, and not instead on the healers or damage dealers in the group. You may already have known that, but it can be useful to establish basics right up front.
The term "Chains of Sindragosa" refers to a Blood DK playstyle that, as the name might suggest, involves the Breath of Sindragosa talent. Utilizing a combination of our Multistrike attunement and the Icy Runes glyph (specifically the large amounts of Runic Power that both generate), this playstyle aims to enable a Blood DK to maintain Breath of Sindragosa indefinitely during raid encounters.
With the Patch 6.2 PTR in full swing and new class changes coming to light with each new build, it’s time to begin coverage of what Tier 18 has in store for us.
Depending on how closely you’ve been following coverage of the patch 6.2 PTR, it may come as a surprise that my column today doesn’t focus on Death Knight changes, tier sets, and other goodies such as trinkets and legendary rings. This isn’t because I’ve been neglecting my own investigations into the patch - far from it!
