Information on Death Knights

The Death Knight is the name of a class shared by two separate organizations of powerful necromancers. These orders share a few things in common, including riding horses with horned skulls and many of the same abilities. There have been three types of death knights within the Warcraft universe:

  • First Generation: Death Knights of the old Horde
  • Second Generation: Death Knights of the Scourge
  • Third Generation: Death Knights of Today

Third Generation Death Knights

The third generation of death knights were part of a collaborated effort on the part of the Lich King to bolster Acherus: The Ebon Hold's legions before marching on New Avalon. However, these death knights only constituted a portion of the death knights under the Lich King's command. Knights of the Ebon Blade had the unique opportunity to assist in the culling of the Scarlet Crusade from the Plaguelands.

In the Wrath of the Lich King expansion the death knights are freed from the will of the Lich King and ally themselves with their respective, former factions. Working closely under the guiding blade of Highlord Darion Mograine and the bolstered Argent Crusade, these freed death knights have begun their march to Northrend.

These so-called third generation death knights are a new class mirroring their previous incarnations. While boasting powerful melee abilities, as well as plate armor, these warriors supplement their strength with dark magic. Calling upon a rune system of magic, the death knight may summon unholy, blood, and frost spells.

Players are only able to claim that they are third generation death knights. Profiles bearing anything else will most likely result in immediate rejection.

Death Knight profiles are no longer considered Special Profiles.
