Do DK's fit the Warrior Mage stereotype?

Death Knight
I want to roll a class that combines melee with magic, like Swordmages from DnD.

Do you think that the DK is satisfies that type?
Blood reminds me of a vampire

Frost DK reminds of Arthas

Unholy is what you are looking for

Somewhat in a mechanical sense. We don't use arcane or elemental damage (even frost is kind of difference to mages and Shamans in that regard) We use unholy which is sort of like a warlocks demonic darkness but from a completely different source. Is that source the Lich King or just another element like the light is I'm not sure.

The class you are looking for in the Warcraft universe is the Spell Breaker I think they are called. But we are much Darker.

Would you settle for Warrior and Warlock instead?


yeah more like it I'd say and more like a warrior then a warlock.

DK still feel like a pure melle most of the time with a few ranged attack but I never felt like they was some sort of "hybrid".

If you played everquest ranger, SK and pally felt a way more like it.
i think the class you may be looking for is an enhance shammy. they scream battle mage in my oppinion
