WoW - Wrath of the Lich King - Death Knight Hands On @ Gamespot

 Alex Sassoon Coby gets some hands on with the new hero class.

PARIS--We've seen a fair bit of what's to come in Wrath of the Lich King, the second expansion to Blizzard's mammoth MMO World of Warcraft; we've slain foes in Northrend in a recent visit to Blizzard's southern California offices, run through the Howling Fjord at last year's Blizzcon, and heard all about the changes to the raiding system. We'd also heard a lot about the game's new class, the Death Knight, but hadn't been able to actually play with one—until now.

Before we get into the heart of the matter, let's recap. When you get into the expansion, you will be able to create a Death Knight if you have a character of level 55 or higher, but you will only be able to have one per account per server, according to the latest information from Blizzard. They can, unlike other classes, be any race you wish—which is likely to annoy those who take their lore seriously.

On creating a Death Knight you are dumped into in the middle of the Plaguelands, the scourge-ravaged area home of the ruined city of Stratholme, to the east of Tirisfal Glades, home of WoW's undead.
