New Ideas

2 ideas came to mind while i was playing arenas: why the f*@# are we called death KNIGHTS if we cant even fight while mounted? It could work similar to the hunter pet system where we have a couple mount choices to use while fighting, each one giving a different buff or ability and a minor speed boost (the 100% would drop to 5-10% when the dk engages combat).

the mount could either work as an individual target that the opponent can kill first to drop the dk off, or the mount could be a "part" of the dk, improving his survivability like an absorption shield that, once reaching its limit, drops him to the ground, only being able to regain his mount while out of combat (in this case the amount of absorption would be the same for all mounts, numbers would have to be balanced of course).

the second idea is about death grip.. it is only logical that when you are pulling something towards you very fast, EVERYTHING in its path should be pushed aside cuz helooo laws of physics! when the dk death grips something, anyone near the DG target on its way back should be either knocked back or stunned, either that or simply everyone around the dk gets 1 of this when his target arrives. That would be a cool improvement to dks utility and would make the game a bit more realistic. This logic could be applied to priest's leap of faith as well.

Firstly you want to be able to out run everyone in pvp while fighting them? Is that why you want to fight while mounted? No, because you can't have it without everyone having it and in the end the classes with extra mount speed built in would be superior in PvP from a kiting stand point.

Your second idea requires a few things. For example does the game engine even support that sort of collision detection? Why would it even need to happen. Most importantly it's for PvP that you really want any of this and doesn't really solve anything. It's more like you're wanting your cake and eating it to.

I would love this if it were purely cosmetic; introduced as a minor glyph for death's advance.

Because we're not all high right now, we see why the idea is purely and utterly stupid.

5% extra speed boost is not that big for a class that has low mobility, we would still be very susceptible to slows, roots and snares so that would in no way make us extremely OP, and the point of it is for death knights to feel more like KNIGHTS, no point in everyone having it, has to be something unique to the class.

the second is just a suggestion that would give dks more utility while not being OP, it can be a nice peel for like when a melee is training you u grip the healer to stun the melee and get away, for example.

No need to be constructive, it's a stupid idea.
