A DIY Death Knight Deck

6 posts in this topic

Haven't gotten into Hearthstone yet, but been playing MtG and rly looking forward to Hearthstone.

 

And this deck would definitely be my go-to deck should it be lucky enough to be noticed and implemented at some point. Amazing work and great art.

That's really awesome what this guy did. I mean, you can debate on whether the Infection/Rot Mark mechanics will imbalance the game or not, but you can only admire the drawings the cards the guy came up with (descriptions + design).

On a more general note, I don't think we'll see a new class any time soon. 9 classes make for a game interface that is much easier to design (3x3 square), especially on mobile devices.

While the guy certainly did some great work, I can already tell that I was feeling frustrated by the Death Knight class. If I was going up against it, the constant disruptions to my minions with this Rot/Infection stuff will off-set so many combinations, it's probably going to make you rip your hair out.

 

Given the rather fast-paced and streamlined approach to gameplay that Blizzard seem to have adopted with Hearthstone, I don't think they'd like so much manipulation of the enemy's minions. Sure, the occasional Aldor Peacekeeper is cool to have played against you, but to constantly have your minions weakened would be pretty infuriating.

 

A lot of the cards are cool, and the theme seems to be quite solid for a Death Knight, but this core mechanic would need to be heavily reworked, I feel.

Yeah that's very well done and thought out.  Could use a little power tweakage, but I like it.

      Hello, so I started playing DK at the launch of legion, and have enjoyed it so far. I was initially unholy but then changed to frost recently, and am enjoying both specs except for one thing, namely my performance. So there are three frost DK's in my raid and lately the other two are always towards the top of the meter while I'm towards the bottom. There is no large gear difference (I think they both have a couple ilvls on me, but I have the legendary belt), so I was wondering what I was doing wrong. Upon looking at logs I found they both casted significantly more spells than me on all fronts (FS, obliterate, etc.). I also noticed that I need to keep icy talons up more, but can someone tell me why I'm casting so many fewer spells than them (there is no large haste difference, the armory has us all at 30something% haste, even though one of them (Hungerghost) and I only have 20something, and I'm sure the same applies to the other DK), or if there is some other problem, then what is it and how can I fix it? Thanks.

      So, the item specifies Death and Decay-which Unholy also has-does it work with the spec? And how good is it in fights where you can have those 10 seconds reliably enough?

      You guys tested if Bloodstained Handkerchief is any fun for a DK?
      I got a Titanforged 880: +1,631 Str & 11,605 damage every 2,6sec until target dies.
      No time to test it yet but I suspect it may be ok in long fights, you could apply it on multiple enemies due to the 1min CD.
      Perhaps also worth nothing it's a *marked with a raven silhouette* item just like Eye of Command
