Death grip is pretty funny in PVP as well. The first time I entered the BG on my DK I would wade right into the battle and get pwned hard. Eventually I decided to see what kind of fun I could have with Death Grip and I started sneaking around battles, pulling the healer out of the fight with Death Grip and proceed to do naughty things to him. It was fun but it got me hunted eventually :(

It works the other way around also. As a healer I get targeted by 98% of the players in whatever Battleground I'm running, and it's always nice to get harassed by a rogue only to have a competent death knight ally yoink the rogue off me and lay down some hurt.Oddly enough, I have to admit a death knight has never actually killed me without a lot of help. Being a disc priest probably has something to do with my general survivability(though I've never had to use Disc-only spells), but as long as I kept spamming Dispel and Abolish Disease on myself I could effectively kite a DK around while ranged allies killed him off. He couldn't mind freeze me because all I'd use are instants, and without diseases up a lot of their abilities aren't very good.I also like it when a death knight Death Grips me right into the middle of his ranged/caster allies and I get to fear them all. I call that a LOLgrip.

Lolgrip nice. I was doing it to Druids and shamans mostly and yah you take away a dks diseases and you effectively de-claw them. They're tons of fun to me I have an affinity for dks and paladins, but they are by no means THE class.

I have seen the opposite a lot, too. I have been pulled out of focus fire by a greedy DK a couple of times, and I have seen probably a dozen times where a Flag Carrier is pulled AHEAD of focus fire and down the field by a greedy/dumb DK.

If you're not solo 99.9% of the time it is inappropriate to use death grip. I see dks misuse it every day on instance runs. Just because you can pull with death grip doesn't mean you should.

I was thinking that it would be fun to team a DK with a lock/spriest. Have the DK pull them w/ DG, and then fear them away. Rinse and repeat.Even more fun, do the same thing for a 5v5 arena team. Have 2 DKs, a lock, & 2 priests. I would suggest doing it to their ranged, so it knocks them out of combat for a little bit.
