Death Knights are not using the light to bring back a fallen player--they are using Necromancy to reanimate your body by putting that person's soul back in control over the dead shell. In a sense they are forcibly anchoring both together. There is no good magic being used--everything being used is the dark empowerment of the Void, however the idea is that necromancy can do a lot of the same things (if not everything) that the Light can do, with the exception of looking different while doing so. If the light brings you back, that's great, you're brought back. If necromancy brings you back, that's great, you're brought back. In both instances the same effect is occuring--the individual is no longer gone from this world. The how doesn't matter, the fact is that both have the ability to do so in their own way. The comparison with the coin was to try and elaborate that while we may see the Light and Dark in different ways, they are more alike than we in fact realize. The light can be used in bad ways, and the dark can be used in good ways. Just because Necromancy is being used to reanimate a corpse, it doesn't mean The Light is being used, it means that Necromancy is doing something that is usually thought of as being a "The Light Sort Of Deal". Necromancy can be used to bring people back from the dead. There is no light being used by Death-knights. It is all necromancy, and it isn't anything new to Azeroth. Liches and Death-Knights have been reanimating people with dark magic for Titans knows how long. The only difference with a player Death-Knight and, say, Arthas, is that he's actually letting the individual stay in control of their shell.They are quote-unquote "different", but they are NO *different*. I do hope you understand, because I have explained it to the best of my ability.And as for your final example... yes, yes they could. Both Warlocks and Hunters master the art of *dominating the will of another being*. They only do so in a different way. Exactly like Light and Darkness, they accomplish the same goal in different ways. Different methods that procure the same result. Beast or demon, the same skill is being used. The only thing that keeps hunters and warlocks from taming or enslaving anything they want is game mechanics, really.
