Common Problems

  • When can I create a Death Knight in Wrath of the Lich King?
  • Why can't I create a second DK on my realm?
  • Are there any restrictions on creating a Death Knight?

Death Knights will be available with the Wrath of the Lich King Classic pre-patch. Read the news post for more information about the prepatch. There are some limitations on creating a Death Knight in Wrath of the Lich King. Below are the details:

  • You may only have one Death Knight per realm.
  • Before you can create a second Death Knight, you must have an existing level 55 character on the realm. Your first Death Knight created in any realm is free of restrictions, with the exception of Fresh Start realms.
  • If you create your restriction-free Death Knight on the wrong realm, you must delete it before you can create a new restriction-free Death Knight on the correct realm. Customer Support will not assist in transferring a Death Knight to another realm.
  • You cannot use a character boost on a Death Knight.

Note: You cannot create your first Death Knight on a Fresh Start realm.
