That sounds awesome, but it seems like it will be disappointing to have to travel to the Outlands at 58 when you're all pumped to go fight Arthas. It doesn't make any sense to spend ten levels questing on another planet, in the context of the Death Knight lore. I know it's unavoidable, just seems like it's going to be a huge drag.

It's unavoidable...they should just make the DK's start at 65 instead of 55. It's really stupid to make DKs have to level in a barren area where no one will be questing and where everyone will be rushing to 70 to play with their friends.Bad game design.

The only bad thing about the entire experience is the ending, actually. After this amazing battle filled with lore references (and some pretty neat visual effects), you're basically dumped back in Ebon Hold and there's a flight master where Arthas used to be standing.No one tells you you're "done" with the DK starting experience; you don't have any quests to point you into the next zone(s); you're just sitting there, and the only way you really discover that you're ready to move on is the fact that no one has any quests for you anymore (and not many NPCs will talk to you now, either.)Yes, you do start with all the flight paths learned, but the way you're just dumped into old Azeroth is really jarring. Merely adding one more quest from Mograine to seek out a leader in who explains things a little more would make all the difference.

I was just thinking that as well!!! Starting at 65 and going to northrend would be a far better storyline from lore's sake. BUT, it's actually backwards considering that they get their start in EPL... you need to know the lore from that end of it too.So I see your point... but it will be a buzz kill to have to do 12 levels of outland before you get to northrend to start your questing to kill Arthas!!!But if the leveling to 70 will be much faster then it might not be so bad. 2-3 levels a night anyone!?!?!
