I think I may stop reading about Death Knight changes until 4.0.1 hits live and it's (relatively) stable. It's changing too much right now to figure out what I want to play as; I've been enjoying Blood DPS on live, but that won't be an option in Cataclysm. Since I think the DK pets are hideously ugly, I'm likely to go to Frost ... but who knows what Frost will look like? They're changing things up every which way. My paladin may be getting an entirely new resource system, but at least the trees are staying the same!

Lol. DKs pet are "hideously ugly"? You see, the class is called *Death Knight*, not Fairy Knight or something like that. It's about death and misery, so it is perfectingly fitting for the pet to be a decayed mess of rotting flesh. You think an *undead minion* should look nice and healthy?Though, personally, I think the ghoul should look more sinister, rotting, putrid or whatever. It looks kinda silly right now if you ask me.Maybe you should stick to your pala then. They'll be getting a shiny, celestial, good looking "angel like" guardian to help from time to time. :)About pala's trees, you see, they will serve the same purpose, but the gameplay mechanics change quite a lot with the addition of HoPO. I preddict some ppl will leave the class because it will become "too complex".And these DK changes, thumbs up for the new way presences work and for the buff for DS! I'm kinda concerned about diseases duraiton right now.
Well, these changes don't seem too "game changing". Mostly just tuning changes. The Obliterate-replacing-Howling-Blast change for non-AoE was pretty predictable. The Necrosis revamp was probably the biggest thing, and that's not saying much.
