"But we loved Corpse Explosion!...Unfortunately, requiring a corpse felt like too steep a requirement for a competitive talent."Umm, okay, I don't get this...unless...are they saying they would scrap a spell just because you can't use it in PvP? Or can you make a player's corpse explode in PvP? Or why not?

Honestly, it's more likely it's because you're probably not going to be able to use it in PvE-raids a lot. I mean, think what fights you would be able to use it on in Dragon Soul. Zon'ozz, Blackhorn, Spine. And, while 3/8 isn't that bad, it also depends on what corpses can be exploded. On spine, the mobs don't actually leave "corpses" in the traditional way. Can they still be exploded? Lots of mobs in raids despawn once they die to reduce clutter. Would you still be able to explode a non-existant corpse? If you can't, that would mean there would be a very narrow window of time between when a mob dies and despawns to explode it, which reduces usefulness to pretty much just Zon'ozz.

You could explode player corpses in Wrath, when the spell was last available....speaking from experience. Our raid leadet had a bad habit of "accidentally" CE-ing me on Ulduar's Hodir trash.Still, they have a point. You've just used one of your six talents on an ability that has limited usefulness for solo raid bosses. And while trash pulls would be awesome, it would still feel like a poor choice. I plan to reserve judgment until after I see the glyph.

I don't play a DK, but would exploding one of your Army of the Dead work?
