I rolled a DK since my characters were still pending transfer. Cleared the whole starting area... some previews:

Some basics
- I started with 20s, so I can't even buy a corpse dust (more on that later) o.O

- Luckily, you get gold as you complete the quests. They are priced nicely so you have enough gold to learn new spells as they are available

- You start with ZERO talent despite being Level 55. You get talent points as you complete quest. It is one way to force you to complete the whole thing, in order to get all the talents revealed to you slowly.

- By the time I cleared the whole thing, my DK was level 57++ - without killing too many things.

Some pictures

Deathknight in General

- At one point, you learn to summon a ghoul from a dead body (or need to have corpse dust that cost 50s eac). The Ghoul is not under your control... so he likes to charge around (like a warrior) to kill things. I made a mistake making one when I went into the Mines to convert ghouls using a device. Instead, my summoned ghoul killed all the miners in one area as he runs around attacking everything. And I cannot dismiss him. That was kinda funny. You CAN control the ghoul if you spec midway into Unholy tree.

- So far I only spec deep all the way into Blood talent tree. Then I ran out of gold Sad

- DK feels kinda busy to play. You need to watch out for the cooldown of those runes, and there are plenty of things to do. When attacking multiple mobs, you can stack poison on one, and then use a plague spell to spread it to multiple targets. Blood tree looks to give pretty good DPS. I didn't need much healing because one of the talent makes bloodworms on my target as I attack it. The bloodworms heal for a good amount. Usually, I end the fight with full health. So yea, it's pretty OP.

Quests

- You start by talking to the Lichking, who sends you to make a runesword. After that you learn how to put one of the two runes on your sword.

- You then need to practice attacking one of the slaves for one quest.

- At one point, you will ride the skeletal gryphon down to the staging area, where there are more quests. One of them is to steal a horse, that is converted into your epic mount...

- You started with lousy green gear, but the whole quest chains will deck you in impressive looking blue gear

- One fun quest is to use a canon on scarlet dudes (kill 100 of them)....

- Another fun quest to ride a bone dragon and kill canons and scarlet dudes

- The ending scenes are really nice... Smile

Mmm one more thing to add...

In most of those quests that let you change form (eg take over a canon), your action bar will be replaced with new functions. At first, I was wondering how the heck to return the horse that I stole, until I found out that there is a "return horse" button on the action bar.

Same thing goes with the canon and bone dragon.
