Wimzig is mad at me.
He is not satisfied by the amount of Frost Death Knight content. All the attention I’ve been placing on Bashertin (Frosty Foes, etc.) with regards to Frost Mage information is fine to an extent, but I have clearly neglected dear old Wimzig. Where’s the light theorycraft? Frost Tanking tips? So on, and so forth.
Because sometimes, (questionable) roleplay just isn’t enough.
Well, I’ve been caught in a phenomenon again. Shortly after the release of Lich King, I plowed Bashertin all the way to 80 in short time, giving me a good amount of time to bring Wimzig up to 70. Of course, Outlands was overpopulated with Death Knights, and 4 DK/1 Healer dungeons were the norm.
Scracth that. 1-2 idiot DK/2-3 normal DK/Healer dungeons were the norm. All the way up from Ramparts to Shadow Labs. Fast leveller that I am, I decided to go ahead of this wave and level him quickly so I can get somewhat normal groups going, and actually learn how to Frost Tank without having my mobs Death Gripped away from me.
Once the gnome hit 70 ahead of the general populace, I placed a good amount of attention on levelling Leyola, while at the same time, levelling up Wimzig’s professions.
Now the druid is 80, Wimzig is back in the driver’s seat, and is taking names in the Nexus and Utgarde Keep. Unfortunately, those “deathtards” and “doucheknights” caught up in Wimzig’s absence in Northrend.
Now can you see why he’s so mad at me?
To make it up to him, I am going to devote a bit of time on this blog to attempt to teach the basics of death knightery, covering topics ranging from combat, spellbook, talents, specs, and frost-specific strategies. While doing so, I hope to present the material in a straightforward, simplified way. Hopefully, if any Deathnoob happens to read this and learn something from it, I will atone for ignoring Wimzig.
See you on the other side of Acherus!
