    Lets see... Death Knight prestige class (not sure if my Draenei Shaman will qualify), lvl 80 cap and new talents, and Northrend being a new location (supposed to be the size of Outland).

    Personally... im looking forward to this. I'll be lvl 70 when it comes out (not sure when) and possably have more than a few lvl 70s going there.

    I thought it looked cool. I don't know what qualifies you to be a DK. They say it's a quest line, but is it only for certain characters (Horde players, or undead for example)? Hopefully it won't be released too soon, as I have yet to get BC.

    So that's it huh? No hope for an RTS sequel. They killed Illidan in Burning Crusade and now you're going after Arthas.

    It does sound good, but I wonder if my Draenei Pally would suffice to be a Death Knight, if not maybe my 'Loc or something, he deals with shadow magic anyways. Siege weapons sound pretty cool as well.

    Death Knight is a class which is UNLOCKED by completing a quest. Anyone can do the quest, horde, alliance, any race any class.

    You then have to create a new character. The Death Knight will start at a "higher experience level" (Blizzard has not yet decided what level exactly, between 50 and 60), and won't be available to all races (I highly doubt gnomes will make the cut).

    Oh. And a BE pally is called...... a Blood Elf Paladin. ;)

    Nah he means as far as the background story goes...the Blood Elf Paladins are called Blood Knights. Classwise they're Paladins, but all the Blood Elf Pally NPCs refer to themselves as Blood Knights

    Have fun with World of Warcraft while it lasts, guys. Introducing a super class is what killed Star Wars Galaxies.

    Death Knights sound interesting. I hope to have my Lok ready to go by the time it rolls around. He's level 16 now! And he's got 101 tailoring! hehe

    He must have some major flaw. I am guessing slow casting or crappy talents.

    No, he's a super class.

    This means he will pwn everyone else.

    i think they've decided to leave warcraft in the MMORPG realm where they are making serious bank. for those of us who want another blizzard RTS, there's always starcraft 2, which i eagerly await.

    I got a 70 Druid at the moment. I hope to get my 32 Warlock to 70 before the expansion comes out. It's slanted for 08 release right?

    Nah it won't....it's a tanking/DPS hybrid that doesn't need a shield (according to the BlizzCon speeches) so the only things it's really going up against are Warriors, Paladins and Bear tanks.

    Plus it's got that whole "abilities work depending on what runes your weapon has etched in it at the time" thing so it's going to need a hell of a lot of shuffling stuff about every time you switch mob packs or so. The way they've said they want to do it is to be a "complex, advanced class" used for endgame stuff. It may be good but you're gonna need to be REALLY good to get the most out of it.

    Look on WoW Insider for a picture from the lore panel of a gnome or dwarf named "Private Ownsusohard" in Arthas's armour and carrying Frostmourne shouting "lol I am the lich king", hilarious :D
