This newspost is pointless since Blizzcon is 24 hours away, but seriously, what is been “leaked” around sounds fake. Some truths and lies mixed up.
Personally, I can’t see a Alliance Deathknight class. That so stands out of synch with what the Alliance stands for. Yet they allow warlocks and … space-demon-looking paladins(Eredar). Still meh … really don’t know how Metzen would justify deathknights for alliance.
On the Horde side, early level 5-10 quests sets you going to talk with a Lich at a lake near Undercity who seems to have broken from the Lich King’s will. He could probably supply Sylvanas with knowledge to create a rare variant of Deathknight.
Fake or not, I can’t but remember just a few days ago the unveiling of DC Comics action figures. Remember when I commented this unit looks like a Deathknight? See the runeblade and all the allegoric skeletal shapes on the knees and shoulders? Still no proof Deathknight class may exist.
Friend from China points out it is a T3 Warrior set, and the Kel’Thuzad weapon loot: “The Hungering Cold”.
