Class Features: Death’s Challenge, Inscribed Weapon, Rune Specialization

Death knights, not to be confused with undead of the same name, are magical warriors trained in forbidden arcane arts. Death knights fight in the front lines using spells over life and death to harm and hinder enemies and protect allies. Death knights fight for honor, knowledge, or just for the thrill of battle.

Regardless of the spells you know and the weapons you employ, your goals define your enemies and your allies. You can be a noble arcane knight who protects the meek and slays evil, or you could be a cursed hero who fights to redeem his evil past.

You know that eventually everyone dies, but what will you do during your time alive?

Creating a Death Knight
You can choose any death knight spells that you fancy for your character, but death knights fall into one of two categories: the defender death knight and the warrior death knight. Death knights need either Strength, Constitution or Intelligence based on what runes your chosen spells use.

Defender Death Knight
You use the more defensive death knight build. You may or may not use a shield but your spells are going to be defensive in origin, mostly affecting you or your allies. You should either specialize in Blood Runes or Death Runes. If you specialize in Blood Runes you are going to need a high Constitution, while if you specialize in Death Runes you are going to need a good Intelligence score.
Suggested Feat: Toughness (Human feat: Human Perseverance)
Suggested Skills: Arcana, Athletics, Diplomacy, Endurance
Suggested At-Will Powers: bolstering blood, touch of death
Suggested Encounter Power: blood step
Suggested Daily Power: vampiric gaze

Warrior Death Knight
You use the more offensive death build. You are going to want a nice two-handed weapon, such as a great sword or maul. You are likely to be using spells that damage or hinder enemies. You should specialize in either Cold Runes or Death Runes. If you specialize in Cold Runes you should make Strength your highest score, and if you specialize in Death Runes you are going to want a high Intelligence score.
Suggested Feat: Power Attack (Human feat: Action Surge)
Suggested Skills: Arcana, Athletics, Endurance, Intimidate
Suggested At-Will Powers: chill, necrotic blade
Suggested Encounter Power: rain of ice
Suggested Daily Power: freezing the lifeblood

Death Knight Class Features
All death knights share these class features.

Death’s Challenge
The challenge of a death knight is also a challenge from death itself. You can use the death’s challenge power to mark foes.

Inscribed Weapon
You can inscribe magical runes into a single two-handed melee weapon of your choice, allowing you to use it as an implement for death knight and death knight paragon path spells when you wield it. You can change your inscribed weapon after an extended rest.

Rune Specialization
You inscribe runes into your weapon based on your selection of spells. There are three different runes usually used by death knight spells: Blood, Cold, and Death. You must choose to specialize in a single type of rune. Your selection determines one of your at-will spells, allows you to cast spells that use that rune with greater effect, and gives you a special boon whenever you drop a foe.
Blood: You know the bolstering blood spell as one of your at-will spells. When you kill an enemy that you have marked, you gain temporary hit points equal to your level. Spells that use Blood runes require the caster to have a healthy body.
Cold: You know the chill spell. When you kill an enemy that you have marked, one enemy within 5 squares is slowed until the start of your next turn. Spells that use Cold runes require the caster to be strong enough to shape ice.
Death: You know the touch of death spell. When you kill an enemy that you have marked, you gain a +2 bonus to AC. Spells that use Death runes require the caster to be studied in the secrets of life and death.

Overview
Characteristics: You are very tough; you have a lot of hit points, but usually do not use shields. You can fight in close combat, and you also have a few ranged spells. You have spells that weaken enemies and strengthen allies. You also have a few abilities that control the battlefield.
Religion: Death knights favor martial and magic deities, but usually death knights pledge themselves to the Raven Queen. Evil and unaligned death knights pay homage to Orcus and Bane.
Races: Death knights come from all races, but are usually humans, dwarves and tieflings.

Death Knight Powers
Your powers are necromantic spells that hold control over life, death, and the icy chill of death.

Class Features
Death Knights have one class feature that acts like a power, death’s challenge, presented below:
Show

Death’s Challenge; Death Knight Feature
You challenge a nearby enemy to combat, draining it should it not fight.
At-Will ✦ Arcane, Necrotic
Minor Action; Close burst 5
Target: One creature in burst
Effect: You mark the target. The target remains marked until you use this power against another target, or if you fail to engage the target (see below). A creature can be subject to only one mark at a time. A new mark supersedes a mark that was already in place. While a target is marked, it takes a -2 penalty to attack rolls for any attack that does not include you as a target. Also, the target takes a penalty to AC equal to half your Intelligence modifier until the start of its next turn the first time it makes an attack that does not include you as a target before the start of your next turn. On your turn, you must engage the target you challenged or challenge a different target. To engage the target, you must either attack it or end your turn adjacent to it. If none of these events occur by the end of your turn, the marked condition ends and you can not use death’s challenge on your next turn. You can use death’s challenge once per turn.

Death Knight – Plague Runes
“Some Death Knights just want to kill slowly. We normally do not teach these techniques.” –Ark “Paladin” of the Raven Queen

A new kind of death knight rune spell was found: Plague. Plague rune spells cause your adversaries to suffer and die slow. Only those insane enough to gain knowledge of these runes will use them. Unlike other forms of rune spells, Plague Runes are utterly evil and very few good souls can wield their power.

Rune Specialization
Instead of specializing in Blood, Cold or Death Runes you can specialize in Plague Runes.
You can choose the following option:
Plague: You know the blight spell as one of your at-will spells. When you kill an enemy that you have marked, all enemies within 5 squares takes poison damage equal to half your level (minimum 1). This effect cannot kill minions. To wield the true power of Plague Rune Spells you must have gone insane and gained forbidden knowledge from your insanity.

Good work, and keep them coming. Also, do you think you could help me come up with some Paragon classes for my ninja?

Death’s Challenge is ranged, hence it would provoke OAs

Classes should only have two primary stats (stats that attack rolls are based on)

Flesh Minion isn't an attack, and shouldn't be at will anyways.

non [w] powers encourage shield use, which I don't think you want.

overall it looks like good work, I'll post more later
*Grabs notepad*
*Scribbles remove flesh minion and add a blood specialization at-will* (Done)
*make death's challenge close burst 5* (done)
*Change attack stats to Str/Int with Con as a booster* (Using three different attacks was one way I balanced it, whoops)
*Post paragon paths* (I'll get around to it...eventually) (Did it a while ago..)
*Maybe help Ravinsild with his rogue--I mean ninja* (I guess I did)

lol
note, it has better AOE then most attempts to make controller classes I see around here. And they do wizard level AOE damage.

You might not like my Ninja, but i liked your Death Knight so much that I stated one up and am about to play it. Unfortunately this was before the changed, but they were minor, I think, and it was only level 1, so I can just erase ranged 5 and put burst on my challenge, etc.

Thanks for making better classes than me (Seriously, I really enjoy this class. If feels like Arthurus from Warcraft: The Frozen Throne, or whatever his name was, and I really like the idea here. Especially the chill magic, since ice magic is my favorite. Good work, and I'm going to take this char to level 30, if I can).

I tried posting this last night right before the forums went down for maintenance and it never got posted (and I lost my post )

Okay, from first glance:

*You favor Blood specialization.
*You need encounters and dailies that have NO effect with a specialization, so that any specialized death knight can take them without feeling gimped.

Overall it looks pretty good.
Well blood spec. is the defender specialization, so a defender class yould probably favor the defender specialization.

Also, I wanted to emphesize specialization effects.

I'm surprised no one brought up the summons yet.

I thought you were going to remove the flesh minion from the powers?

I agree with rune specialization - I like having an extra oomph to good attacks. THe Ice defender *chill if you will* is extremely good at incapacitating foes, that's mainly what I looked at, it was the build I was mostly interested in.

I don't understand what you mean by - Change Str/Int to attack stats and have Con as booster?

Like all attack will be Strength vs. AC or Int. vs. ?? and like in some powers make it (add constitution modifier damage) or something?

Also, I was wondering: Shouldn't you replace the flesh minion with some other at-will power? All other classes have 4 or 5, right?

Well blood spec. is the defender specialization, so a defender class yould probably favor the defender specialization.

I don't think there should inherently be more powers for one particular specialization, though.

Also, I wanted to emphesize specialization effects.

That's fine, but I think it would still be better if, amongst the powers with extra specialization effects, there was a power without one.

At the same time that I agree with specialization, I also agree with at least one power at every level that has nothing to do with a specialization, perhaps focus on the Knight part of Death knight? Maybe take a fighter power every level and reword it?

On it, and might as well work on the paragon paths while I'm there.

How about you make a paragon path for each rune? It could be: Blood Master (Blood runes), Lord of the North (Cold runes), and Necromatic Soldier (Death runes). What do ya think?

Also, when using powers like Animate Dead and Summon Flesh Golem, how much damage do the creatures deal when they attack.?
The Paragon Paths are: Blood Knight (Blood), Dark Knight (N/A), Paladin of the Raven Queen (Death), and Warrior of Ice (Cold).

It says in the abililties that by spending a standard action they can attack. The attack is the one listed in the power under Attack and Hit. (I'll reword).

Thanks, glad you like the name Lord of the North, Ravinsild.

pigknight, aren't Blood knight and Dark Knight sort of redundant names? Dark Knight makes me think of the new Batman movie.... how much damage do the ghouls and flesh golem deal when they attack.
Dark Knight: It's a copy of the FF dark knight.
Blood Knight: I'll change it.
Lord of the North: Sure why not.
Summon damage: The hit entry in the power.

Arthas would approve...will the epic destiny have anything to do with the frozen throne?
lots of inspiration, lots of epic. you should buy and play the game just for that cut scene.
This describes me. (Click on it to see)

I think there could be an epic destiny for the Death knight, based off the Frozen throne, Doomsought. It could be Scion of the Lich King. Though, you know what happens in the end, right?
(This is Ravinsild) Unfortunately, as I thought he would, my DM fought me tooth and nail over being a Death Knight saying there is no way a Death Knight could be good or neutral, only evil.

As such, he proposed a stupid compromise, which actually turned into a full blown idea - instead of blood, death and ice, have it be an elemental knight that is Earth, Fire and Ice. It started off as just renaming things and changing a small bit of flavor, but as we developed them they came into a full blown class of thier own. I'm going to borrow your Death Knight for a little bit, but hopefully when I'm done our two works of art will be very distinguishable. Thanks for the inspiration!
1st) Death Knights are spellswords with necromancy and follow the Raven Queen for the most part. In my campain setting Death Knights are mostly (lawful) good Angsty McAngstersons.
2nd) Why is necromancy evil? Clerics do it all the time (Cure X Wounds, Raise Dead).

saying there is no way a Death Knight could be good or neutral, only evil.

take a look at some alliance quest text. WoW characters aren't evil. Yet they can play DKs ergo, that's a lame excuse.


That being said pigknight's version is still a work in process, which is a plenty good reason for a DM to say no.
1st) Death Knights are spellswords with necromancy and follow the Raven Queen for the most part. In my campain setting Death Knights are mostly (lawful) good Angsty McAngstersons.
2nd) Why is necromancy evil? Clerics do it all the time (Cure X Wounds, Raise Dead).

Following his line of thought Death can't be neutral, because if death is neutral and you can make pacts with it, then you can just ask death or the Raven Queen to kill Orcus instead of fight him, or worse yet Orcus could make a deal with death to kill all good things, and by it choosing sides it would either have to become good or evil.

Even if it didn't choose sides simply having a character use such powers like death, blood and cold means that it harnessess things generally viewed as punishment - death is a punishment for going against God in the beginning - if you believe the bible as he does, thus as a punishment, death is bad, because death is not natural, we brought death to ourselves by defying God, therefore if you were to harness death and necromancy, as no necromancer he says, is good you'd have to be evil. The spark of "life" in the undead is generally from the negative plane (old D&D) and Orcus (who is the prince of evil) is ruler of the undead, and as such, anyone who harnessess death is in league with Orcus.

He makes things too complicated and can't just accept it as a good class...
Your reading to much into this. It's just a gish with evocation and necromancy spells and focuses on either hemoglobin, ice cubes, or killing.

Also if using necromancy is evil what about wanton massacer of the lil' lizardmen families that are friends with the giant red lizard?

And you shouldn't be playing my class yet as it's not done, it's in the beta phase but that's it.

Oh, well I thought you said it was tested and is balanced =/
I said it was tested and balanced so far. I think...well I haven't found any uber combos and I haven't done much editting (damn you WoW!).

I was planning on trying a level 5 Death Knight as a temporarily DMPC for a small adventure. I'll give you some feedback if that would help your production. It looks good.

My game isn't until Sunday, however. :p
I said it was tested and balanced so far. I think...well I haven't found any uber combos and I haven't done much editting (damn you WoW!).

What do you play in WoW? I'm on the Bloodhoof server with a level 8 Troll Hunter, level 40 Human Mage, level 8 Night Elf Priest, and on the Blood Furnace server I have a level 68 and 1/2 Night Elf Hunter.

Also will you look at the Chaos Reaver class I made in response to my DM's unallowance of the Death Knight? I pretty much left almost all the Ice powers alone, but I changed some of the other stuff kind of drastically in some cases, and in others you did such a good job I just changed the flavor and name, lol.
RoCkEtInToXiCaTe:
1)Lvl 38 Human Ret Paladin and lvl 19 human warrior on Hyjal.
2) Shouldn't it be the elemental reaver?
3) Your DM hates necromancy but is ok with chaos?
4) It looks fine from what I saw.

KrakenChaos: Thanks.

Update: Added Dark Knight and Hemomancer.

I named it the Chaos Reaver because my DM said - "When I think of the elements I think of Chaos and Fury" so we sat and brainstormed a name we came up with - Dread Knight, Elemental Knight, Templar, and I finally said Chaos Reaver based on the words Chaos and Fury and Reaver from Magic: The Gathering creatures honestly.

My DM is weird and thinks and questions too much stuff, so I guess he does hate necromancy but is okay with chaos.

Thanks for the looks fine.

I think the Death knight is balanced, according to my having quickly playtested it. Might take a look at the Chaos Reaver.

Also, Pigknight, can you take a look at my 4e psion? (not complete, only have class features and 1st level stuff)
I think you are missing the Chill spell in the level 1 At-Will powers list. Available through specializing in Cold runes.
Added chill.
