I recently have redone the DK starting quests and couldn't help but feel... more Death Knightish in the very starting greens that you were given in Archus. Mainly this was due to the changed aesthetic where you've got a hood and robe rather than a Helmet and pants that grip your rear so tight people need to mount expeditions to get them off you.
This is probably because ultimately we're more of a spellcasting melee class, similar to Paladins, rather than a RAWR SMASH melee class like Warriors or Rogues. Also the hood in particular gives you that feeling of being a dark knight who just kinda waves a hand raises the dead and pitches them at his opponent while sitting back and taking a swig of ale.
Also some classes just shouldn't be seen in standard plate pants *glares at a dranei*.
