Notable Death Knights

Ragnok Bloodreaver

He is one of the original Death Knights of the Horde of Draenor, created by Gul’dan from corpses of fallen Alliance Knights and the spirits of the slain Shadow Council.

Ragnok was an orcish warlock of the Shadow Council when warchief, Orgrim Doomhammer, came upon them in a surprise attack and slew nearly every last member, including him.

Shortly after, Gul’dan, his former master, brought him back and placed his spirit, along with his fellow council members, in the decaying bodies of knights of Azeroth.
That is how the Death Knights were born.
The Horde was defeated and the Dark Portal destroyed. Ragnok found himself trapped on Draenor along with Teron Gorefiend and Gaz Soulripper (which rise as Death Knights as well). Teron and other Death Knights convinced Ner’zhul to reopen the portal.

“Pitiful things. I could destroy you with a mere thought! You will come with me to retrieve the Eye or -“

Arthas Menethil

Crown Prince of Lordaeron and Knight of the Silver Hand, he was the son of King Terenas Menethil II and heir to the throne. He was trained as a paladin by Uther the Lightbringer, and had a romantic relationship with the sorceress Jaina Proudmoore.

Taking up the cursed runeblade Frostmourne, Arthas became the most powerful and evil being in Azeroth, he became a Death Knight of the Scourge and led the Undead in destroying Lordaeron, Quel’Thalas and Dalaran. He eventually made his way to the Frozen Throne of Icecrown and merged with the Lich King.

He ruled as Lich King for years and years, Arthas was finally defeated in combat by Highlord Tirion Fordring and his champions of the Light. Cradled by the spirit of his father, Arthas Menethil died, leaving the mantle of the Lich King to be taken by Bolvar Fordragon who would contain the power of the Scourge.

“Wizards of the Kirin Tor! I am Arthas, first of the Lich King’s death knights! I demand that you open your gates and surrender to the might of the Scourge!”

Notable People Of Each Classes

As some of you might have noticed I had a ‘theme’ while I was doing Lae’s (from World of Lae) Alt Appreciation challenge. I wrote about classes that you might know or you should know. I’ve been thinking a lot of adding it as a real theme for my blog and since it’s new year and all, here it is 🙂
Starting next week, I will be introducing a few people of importance to the current class of the week.

#DeathKnightWeek notable Death Knights

Since I figured out this “theme” on my Druid week, this one is going to be my first notable Death Knights post 🙂 I was thinking to start with familiar boss encounter, Four Horsemen. Here they are:

Baron Rivendare

He was wealthy Landowner and friend of Kel’thuzad. He fell under the necromancer’s way and helped build and structure the Cult of the Damned. One of his greatest joys is to instill corruption in others, especially paladins, and most especially members of Argent Dawn.
Originally he was ruling over the city of Stratholme for the Scourge. Now days he leads the Four Horsemen of Naxxramas in place of Highlord Mograine.
Quote:
“Time to take matters into my own hands. Come. Enter my domain and challenge the might of the Scourge!”

Lady Blaumeux

She calls forth the power of shadows, drawing the souls of the living into the voracious embrace.
It is presumed that she was formally a paladin and likely represents the “Rider of Famine”, based on her black colour scheme.
She wrote book called “This is my Runeblade…”.
In comic she witnessed the enslaving of Alexandros Mograine by Kel’thuzad. Later she fought against the party of Darion Mograine led into Naxxramas.
Quote:
“Your life is mine!”

Thane_Korth’azz

He represents the “Pale Rider of Death”, based on his light green colour scheme. He holds the power of flame.
He is fallen dwarf paladin. There is speculation that he fell to the Scourge after Uther’s death, as he might have been leading member of the Knights of the Silver Hand.
This is partially confirmed when Alexandros Mograine refers to Korth’azz as “one of Uther’s men”.
In comic he, along with Lady Blaumeux, witnessed enslaving of Alexandros Mograine nad fought against Darion Mograine.
He was defeated when Darion struck him down with the Corrupted Ashbringer.
Quote:
“Come out and fight, ye wee ninny!”

Sir Zeliek

He was a paladin in life, so strong in his faith, that even in undeath, the power of the light still heeds his call, smiting his foes in battle.
His body is forced to obey Kel’thuzad’s commands, Sir Zeliek managed to retain his sanity and morals despite his corruption. This could be seen as a mark of great spirituality and mental streangth.
He represents the “White Rider of Conquest”, based on his colour scheme and the wings on his helmet (signifying victory).

Quote:
“I…I have no choice but to obey!”

Death Knight transmog

Few weeks ago was last week of Lae’s Alt appreciation. I really enjoyed it a lot and I was thinking to start going trough the list (it goes trough all the classes in alphabetical order)  again so this week would be #DeathKnightWeek again for me 😛
For these weeks I was thinking to continue my Notable posts and post some transmogs too. I’m gonna start with my Death Knights leveling transmog 🙂
I got it from Pearlfin Village, Jade Forest. It’s called Brick Battleplate (recolor).
It is so far out from Death Knight so I ended up liking it because of that 😛


Naming your characters

I think this could be nice add for Alt appreciation theme.
Everyone knows how difficult it is to find a free name you want to use preferable unique 😛
For myself I have to say that I’m not the most creative type, but I always try to find unique-ish name or just a different variation of something funny or something I like or just being boring and using food or dessert
So I thought that I share my character names with you again (Firstly I have listed them in my 30 days of World of Warcraft: Day 26 ) and tell how I came up with them 🙂

Rinike – 90 level Druid (my main)
 – This one I created when I was thinking to start this blog, I wanted something unique and it     is anagram of my middle name.
Éllih – 90 level Priest
– My nick name is Elli and I tried every different variations of it and ended up with this.
Shenyer – 90 level Shaman
 – I was able to be bit more creative and I was just pressing different letter combinations.          What I didn’t know that now when I googled it, it’s a last name 😀
Pizzelle – 90 level Hunter

– My Hunter is named after one of character in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, she has      3 cookies(2 of them are whole and one with bite taken out of) as a cutie mark 🙂
   It is also traditional Italian waffle (which I learned few days ago :P) singular is Pizzella
Kérmavaahto – 90 level Paladin

– This one is simply whipped cream in Finnish with apostrophe above e
Naldyn – 90 level Monk

– I came up with this name also by bashing my keyboard 😛
Smartíe – 86 level Mage

– I was eating smarties when I created my mage
Raritý – 70 level Rogue

– Rarity is one of the main ponies in My Little Pony
Pixié – 70 level Warrior

– I like fairies
Melune – 80 level Death Knight

– I was doodling names and different spellings in my head when I was creating her
Ríncewind – 90 level Warlock

– Every book lover must know where the name is from 😉 <3
   He is a really funny wizard in Discworld novels written by Terry Pratchett

Mantelí – 85 level Paladin
 – Almond in Finnish
Sacura – 82 level Hunter

– She is a character in Naruto and if it’s written with k instead of c it’s a cherry blossom tree
Mynia – 47 level Priest

– I don’t have any memories how I came up with this name, but probably doodling with    different combinations again. The name was firstly on my main other priest (alliance) and I   sometimes like to use them again in another server.
Chíli – 55 level Druid

– It’s a spicy fruit 😛

My Warlock was named as Darna (she was my first ever char), and as again I was hitting buttons and came up with that and afterwards I noticed the similarity with Darnassus 😛 (at start I didn’t even know about the awesome Elf city <3
Hope you enjoyed my babble again ^^


Alt Appreciation #DeathKnightweek

When @Laeleiweyn from World of Lae made a post about alt appreciation I instantly thought that this would be something for me to try out. Since I’m dedicated altoholic I thought in my head that why not try to level my missing alts on these weeks.

So this first week is all about Death Knights, I have to say I’m not really a fan of DK’s and only reason to level my pretty one is just to get all classes to level 90 ;D
Maybe I grow to like her who knows 🙂

Her name is Melune, I play on Frostmane EU. When I write this she is half way to level 70 and my goal for today is to get atleast 75 🙂 I’m leveling her as Unholy, I tried Blood but it felt really weird (I probably try it again at higher levels).

I’ll keep you posted, probably by updating this post, haven’t decided yet 🙂

Here is the list: 

21/08/2013

So far my pretty little DK is at level 71 (got bit distracted with food yesterday :D).

I’ve been giggling to these names of my lovely minion.

Here are some of my favourites:

  • – Brainmonger
  • – Dirtcatcher
  • – Wormleaper
  • – Batthief
  • – Graveleaper
  • – Tooththief
  • – Mudleaper
  • – Rotrumbler
  • – Gravegobbler
  • – Glacierrobber

23/08/2013

I finally dinged 80 with my pretty DK!! *Yay* 🙂

Only 10 more levels to go then! At the start I wasn’t really sure if I would like DK, but I’ve grown to like it. Things go boom really fast as Unholy (Looms might help a bit tho ;P )

But here is a new picture of her!

I also made new friends in Icecrown! 😛
Pebblemuncher found some friends too!
