Although she is Retired and will no longer be adventuring, I was still curious to see how the Patch 7.0 class changes, especially the all-specs-available change, would affect the Underpowered Death Knight.
For reference, the Underpowered Death Knight had been running with a modified/pseudo-Ironman set of rules under which she could not choose a specialization,
assign talent points,
or use glyphs to modify the power of her abilities (though I did eventually allow her to use a couple of cosmetic minor glyphs).
I rather foolishly cropped her action bars out of the reference pictures I took of her spellbook just before the patch, but you can see what her main action bar looked like in the right panel of the first image in this post.
I was somewhat surprised, though, that not only did her talent points get reset (I was expecting that), but also her entire slate of action bars got completely wiped! When I opened up her Talent pane and Spellbook, I found that she was no longer specialization-less. *sigh* I had been afraid that that might happen. She had been automatically assigned the Unholy specialization.
Unholy being the most odious of the DK specializations to me, I gritted my teeth and, with sadness and regret that I had been forced to abandon one of the signature aspects of the Underpowered Death Knight’s character concept, switched her specialization to Blood.
When I did so, a raft of spells floated down to fill up her primary action bar.
I have stubbornly left all her talent points unspent.
I chose Blood because her current Transmogrification kit requires a 2H weapon; I suppose I shall have to shift her between Blood and Frost now, depending on what type of weapons my latest Transmogrification kit idea for her uses.
Speaking of Transmogrification, by the time I logged in with the Underpowered Death Knight, I’d already checked in with Kaylynda the Alliance Mage, all of my minor Alliance alts, and most of my minor Horde alts — just logging in with them, not even going through their inventories to bind and sell stuff — and between them, they already had enough clothes to make me FABULOUS!!!
