A co-worker is trying to be the first level 80 Death Knight on his server. Much luck to all the soulless murders slouching towards Azeroth to be born.
I understand that there were many complaints about the Death Knight storyline during beta. It seems that some people want to play a being that sold its soul to an incarnation of evil for power, wreaking a trail of murder and betrayal through its old fellows in arms as it sucks the vitality from the living to fuel its dark, blasphemous existence … but do not want to do immoral things to NPCs in the process. Before setting out to slaughter a path of NPCs to level 80. But, you know, not being mean about it.
I sometimes wonder if I should explain those allusions.
