@Daethar I pretty much agree with everything you've said, except one thing: "[Starting at level 55 and having an entire set of epic blues] created a huge flaw in the class, which is that they had only 3 levels with which to learn their class, instead of 58.""Learning the class" is something that happens to most if not all classes - mainly because just about every class has a "leveling spec" which they discard for "the real spec" later on. For warlocks, it's pretty well accepted practice to be Affliction until 50, Demonology until 80, then Destruction for raiding. Each spec has tricks and rotations that must be learned. Mages go Frost until they can make Arcane viable. On my druids, at least until recently, it was easier to spec as feral dps until 40, then switch over to balance for moonkin form. I suppose it's possible to level a rogue via Subtlety instead of Combat, but why would you want to? (Perhaps Selfloathius could offer his opinion...) This could be just my opinion, but as far as I'm concerned, the spec is the class. So, while DKs have only 3 levels before they're "Azeroth ready", it's not a unique weakness of the DK class. It's part of the weird foundation of the game, where leveling as one spec and ending up as another is standard practice.
