Yes, there will be tons of low level death knights. Everyone will probably check it out at least for a little time.What I don't get is where they are supposed to fall. I hear they are going to be Tanks that can do DPS. Er... as a druid we got seriously nurfed when our bear form DPS was high. Almost everyone (tanks and dpsers) complained until we were adjusted to be near the bottom of the DPS charts and given other ways to hold aggro.Why is the death knight going to be any different? The class will have to spec DPS or Tank just like the warrior - otherwise there is going to be either a huge outcry or the Warrior, Druid and possibly the Pally classes will get abandoned unless your focusing on healing. WoW is too much designed around the Tank-DPS-Heal-CC setup. Give one class too much concurrent access to more than just one of those at a time and your spelling trouble.Which leads to the "tank shortage". Well, again, as a main druid I love it. For a good year of playing this game feral druids never got an invite and early on one really wanted a resto druid because of the lack of res. Well, if Death Knights can either DPS or Tank (assuming the cries of outrage have made this so) then they are going to choose DPS - just like Warriors do now.Frankly, I don't care all that much if the class becomes both a DPS/Tank - maybe I will switch for good then. However, I think they really should have introduced a hero healing class if that is the case. Then we would all just play the two new classes and be done with it -heh.Ps. Warhammer team - please save us from these issues when you develop your game?

If I roll a Chosen, Ima DPS, not tank.
