They look cool, but not something I'd switch out for. Just me.
I mean, Arthas already created fire-based undead... so why can't Bolvar create fire-based death knights? Like the idea of increasing class diversity by providing new specs though! I can't say I think Blizzard will do it, but Allied Races were a new thing they did and look how well it worked out for them.
Rather than a fourth spec, isn't it way more likely you get the one blade when you start, and then pick one of the other three at the end of the starting area ? I mean, the starting area already has four cloaks. One you start with, and three more that you get to pick one of. That's four cloaks, and yet, nobody thought that was four specs.I'm still waiting on a third spec for my Demon Hunter. I want a crossbow in each hand and a tamed demon dog by his side.
Guys, remember, in the starting zone we (currently) have to take a sword and runeforge it (how they teach the use of the runeforge) The Burning Blade of the Ebon Blade could very easily be the name of the sword you get before you runeforge it to the spec you are. Though I still wouldn't argue with a fire spec.
Their item level fits that of the DK starting zone. This is all but complete confirmation that it is planned.
I think these look awful, apart from the Rune and the Skull (apart from it being made from bone, something I already have a problem with when it comes to wow weapons) these look nothing like the already established DK aesthetic.
And they all look like crap. Why do they have to be so wide and top heavy. Also they look more like demon weapons than undead weapons.
Give the Lich King proper armor he stood naked for long enough !
Burning Blade of the Ebon Blade...OMG give me fire spec for my Deathknight pls!
I know WoD recieved unbelievable amounts of hate and the majority of players, from my experience, didnt pick up toooo well on Illidans return too, but there is barely any topic I'd enjoy more than any kind of WotK / LK-related addon or content. Maybe a detailled, seperated zone for GrimBatol, but I dont really believe for that soon.I dont believe there will be a fourth spec for DKs coming since Blizz already stated they'd like to have less specs then there are right now and a FOURTH melee spec seems not really benefital for anyone, but maybe one of them will be replaced by fire?In the end though I dont expect there will be a fire skilltree for DKs. Its probably more like a commitment to the fire-related birth of the current LK. Maybe there will be a way to turn the unholy skill tree into a fire themed tree like changing warlock flames from purple to green, but not much more.
