Ah, finally, a great place to have some intelligent discussions about Death Knight mechanics. Gotta love the new 'Tanking' Forum!

I'm pretty sure more players like me are rerolling a Death Knight and to help everyone out a bit, it might be a good idea to post some links to sites that will help you.

If you have any other suggestions; I'll update the main post.

Warning: some links might include out-dated information. Please pay attention to the thread's starting date. It might be wise to start reading posts further in the topic, since they discuss more recent matters.

I hope you understand this compiliation is far from finished. Those are the sites I had on top of my head; please correct me or suggest other/better sites. This is a work in progress, of course. =)


-Edit #1 - Added three videos.
-Edit #2 - Updated the thread a bit with new links to sites rather than specific links, to give the links a longer lifespan and to link to recent and updated information.
