People complain about DKs being so simple.I'm leveling a mage right now--I have him dualspecced Arcane with one tree and Frost with the other.Arcane tree, single target:AB-Slow-AB-AM. Mob is probably dead. Might have to tag Barrage on the end depending on crits.Arcane tree, AOE:Instavisibility and run. (Unless I'm missing something, rofl--I suppose I could use some points in Frost for times like those)Frost tree, single target:Frostbolt, Frostbolt, HEY LOOK BRAIN FREEZE, Fireball, Frostbolt, HEY LOOK HE'S IN MY FACE, Frost Nova, run away, Shatter combo, HEY LOOK FINGERS OF FROST, Shatter combo again.Frost tree, AOE:Ice Barrier, mount up and collect mobs, when Barrier breaks IV/Blizzard macro, spam instant casts on any survivors.Death Knights:Run towards mob, IT at range, PS, BS/HSx2, DS/OB/SS, DC/FS. Repeat. Replace BS/HS with a Pestilence, your DS/OB/SS and other BS/HS with Death and Decay, DC/FS with UB if you have it, and/or diseases with HB if you have it as needed for sufficient AOE.Arcane, single target: Three buttons if lucky, four if not.Arcane, AOE: N/AFrost, single target: One button at first, a second and third button based on procs, and a fourth if the mob happens to reach you. Plus Barrier, I guess, but you only need to refresh that every few pulls.Frost AOE: Two effects activated prior to pull, lots of movement, another button(macro), and instant cast spam on survivors (I'll count three: Ice Lance, Nova, and Cone). Total is six buttons and movement, can be done with lessDK: Guaranteed five buttons. No more, no less, except cooldowns which all classes have.
