Nov 20th 2011 2:27AM Thus came the day when she was sewn back to life, forced to either pick up a sword, which she had never trained with (she only ever learned to wield staves and maces), or serve as a way for the other Death Knights to sate the anguish they were born with. She was just skilled enough to continue surviving, assisting in the annhilation of the Scarlet Crusade's towns to the south of the Ebon Hold. In the assault on Light's Hope Chapel, she had ended up fighting against those who she once called friends, killing a few of them in the few minutes of that battle, until Tirion had restored the Death Knights' souls, and Reklisc was immediately so overwhelmed in grief over what she had done that she simply collapsed, seemingly trapped in a waking nightmare. A few of the other Death Knights assisted her to her feet, as Darion Mograine promised those who were of Alliance races he would lead them through Stormwind to pledge their old allegiances anew, and head off with the Alliance forces to Northrend to get their revenge on the Lich King. Rebranding herself Wreklisc, she became an unquestioning soldier who only ever requested orders from Alliance officers, and in her near-constant silence, she never got close to anyone she met, and as an Unholy Death Knight, if she felt her pain grow beyond what she could handle, she would use Death Pact on her ghoul to relieve herself. Once word got out about the assembly of the Argent Tournament, meant to decide who would be the ones to lead the assault on the Lich King, she and all the other Knights of the Ebon Blade knew they had to join. There she met with Moni, who had become a Blood Death Knight, which surprised Wreklisc as she hadn't remembered seeing her back in the Eastern Plaguelands. Her and Moni's practically mediocre skills left them out in the cold as they were dropped from the tournament, and it crushed what little spirit Wreklisc had left to know she wouldn't even be in the Citadel when the combined forces invaded.
She remained at Valiance Keep as the Alliance packed up to leave, guarding from the kvaldir and Horde that were still in the area. After that, she headed back to Light's Hope Chapel, hoping to still be of use. With the coming of the Twilight's Hammer, Wreklisc gladly joined her newer friends in saving the World Tree from the Cultists and the forces of Ragnaros, and as they seemed to gain a grasp on saving Hyjal and moving on next to Deepholm, Wreklisc sadly declined to join them, opting instead to fend off the incursions of the Firelord's army instead of possibly instigating the continued conflicts between the Horde and Alliance that she couldn't bring herself to continue, but wished her friends luck. Now we reach the point where she is highly valued in her efforts, and allying herself with the Shadow Wardens, she now helps lead the charge in snuffing out the Firelord. (yeah, haven't gotten to him yet)
Nov 20th 2011 2:24AM It's so nice to finally see this one! It's also kinda cool that a majority of commenters seem to also like Draenei DKs :)
I'd like to post mine, which will be pretty long, because as a Draenei, my character has been around since BC's launch.
Mine's Wreklisc, whose past dates back to her being born during the trip to Draenor, born as Reklisc (/nod) and having her parents belong to the Hand of Argus, and she grew up raised to be a Priestess. She joined in training under one of Velen's disciples with most others, but spent most of her free time tending to the animals on the Botanica. One day, as we all know, Kael'thas and his followers attacked Tempest Keep, and she was led with the others into the Exodar, and after that it stays a blur until her escape pod is opened. She naturally went on to help the other survivors recuperate, missing out on the other things players got to do, but _was_ part of the group that helped the Stillpine furbolgs, as well as meeting Admiral Odesyus's crewin the south and joining them and Velen's entourage to meet with the Night Elves in Darnassus. Afterwards, travelling on with Velen's and Tyrande's groups to meet the other leaders in Stormwind, Reklisc came across the Cathedral, and was almost immediately smitten with such a large building devoted to that which she and the paladins and priests had known of, but had never in thousands of years come across any other race that was at all attuned to The Light. Through the humans there, the draenei learned of the sad recent past, and the Scourge that took over Lordaeron, and a good number were moved enough to assist in the Argent Dawn's attempts to cleanse the lands. Reklisc gladly joined many others of the various races in their long, drawn-out attempts, but not much progress was ever made. After a good month or so, word came out that the forces of the Alliance and Horde were preparing to take back Tempest Keep, and what was now the Black Temple, and Reklisc saw many of the friends she came to know well leave to avenge her people, as she stayed behind to do what she could, though also out of the fear of reliving the things she had witnessed back on Draenor, even if she could barely remember them. She even remained there as the Sunwell was brought back to life with Velen's help and M'uru's sacrifice. It was then that more Blood Elves and Forsaken began to join the Argent Dawn in their efforts, and Reklisc became friends with a Blood Elf priestess named Monitressa (a friend of mine who was also a huge Chaotic fan - "Monitressa" = mix of "Takinom" and "Intress"), who had shared the stories of her race's betrayal by Arthas' hands.
A few months had passed, until an alarming surge in Scourge activity near the capitols of the Horde and Alliance had the Argent Dawn sending their members out to assist in the Lich King's out-of-nowhere attacks. Reklisc, Moni and over 20 others had been sent out to the Ramparts in the west after hearing that the Scarlet Monastery was the converging point of many of the Scourge in the Plaguelands. As they neared Andorhal, an overwhelming ambush had come from the south...
Nov 15th 2011 7:17PM My idea for having all 11 spots fit would be to have 10 slots, and have the 1 slot you can give for your DK on that server be just DK-only, since you can only have 1 per server anyways, and would be relevent to any server you may play on. Wouldn't that be the best way to work it?
Nov 2nd 2011 7:02PM Aw, crap!
Now I'm gonna be disappointed if get no Dragon Ball references at all in MoP.
At the very least, I want a Mogu-related chain for us Alliance players based on the Monkey King!
Oct 29th 2011 12:16AM I'm just posting this here to be a complete ass and have people read this (I believe the proper term is "douche hijacker"), so...
Am I pretty much the only person who isn't going to immediately roll a Dwarrf Brewmaster? (because I'll be playing a Draenei Brewmaster)
Oct 29th 2011 12:03AM I thought that the first thing everyone would do was roll a Dwarf Brewmaster? Except me - I want a Draenei Brewmaster!
Oct 27th 2011 12:07AM Underwhelming, I understand, but I think it's still pretty cool - it's not in the "too much going on" category, thankfully.
I dunno about anyone else, but I'm really looking forward to seeing our first MoP DK set -I'm pulling for it looking like the Mantids! Warlocks can take the Sha-looking set - they're all doomed to fall to their self-made Sha anyways.
Oct 26th 2011 11:58PM I definitely would love to see each writer at least add a little bit about their Pets (if they plan on doing the mini-game at all).
Just as a for-fun question, I'd like some suggestions for pets a(n Alliance) DK would likely have (I'm not much on pets, and the only ones I've got are the easy ones like the ones bought in Capitols and event ones like the Wolpertinger (sic?))?
Oct 25th 2011 7:59PM In all fairness, with us being "Death Knights", we TOTALLY should've gotten the Deathwing set instead of Warriors. Yeah, that's a bit... warmer than us cold-hearted are used to (even though most of us have been in the Firelands for a few months), but come on - we ARE "Death".
Even so, I'm sure our's will rock out loud like everyone else's, totally typified of our total badassliness.
Then our first set in MoP will have us look like Mantids! Effin' eh!!
Oct 24th 2011 2:04AM Thank you, Natsumi, making those points so none of us others had to. I only gave LOTRO a shot purely because it's F2P, and I can't even say it's worth the money I paid for it (which in this case is the time of my life lost to such a sad thing - I truly hope nobody paid for that game for being brutally ripped off).
