Are the deathknights we rolled actually dead? I feel left out everytime we meet an ebon hold member because they act like they have no idea who I am....... arent I suppose to be in the same epic awesome deathknight club?!?!?plus they (and every other NPC) always refer to me as human rather than whatever I thought deathknights were.... In the satrting zone it shows NPCs being raised from the dead to become deathknights so i just assumed that thats where i came from too... is this true? am I dead or not???

seeing as people havent been raised from the dead yet in real life it is hard to say if they would be refered to as human. in wow a characters race defines them, even in death they still look their race and wear their races colors. i as a blood elf death knigh still fight for the dead and speak thalasinian.are you talking about the npc's in ebon hold? if you are i see no reason why they would talk to you. they are dead and mad about it. i wouldnt expect the friendly greetings that you get from shop keepers in dalaran from a death knight in ebon hold.and if you are dead or not depends on your defenition of the word "dead." you are clearly not inanimate but i would say that your soul is dead. thats just my take on it though. it makes me feel like more of a bad a** when i play my death knight.

Yes, you're dead. The narration when you create a new Death Knight even says, "You stood boldly against the shadow and purchased another dawn for the world... with your life."You can feel free to RP your DK however you want, but the background setup for all Death Knights of Acherus is that they were killed and raised by the Scourge. Unlike the higher ranking "real" Death Knights, most of those raised at Ebon Hold were intended to be used as fodder in the Lich King's assault against Light's Hope.
