WoTLK: Death Knight’s Glyphs

Glyphs, special abilities given to our fellow friend the Death Knight, the first hero class in World Of Warcraft. We have had access to some of them. Take a look, brilliant stuff:

Glyph of Dark Command

  • What it is: Increases the chance for your Dark Command ability to work successfully by 8%, that means that you will improve your tanking skills. If you’re low on your hit rating, this is a nice glyph for you, big boy.
  • What we would like it to be: Your Dark Command has a 8% rate of turning any helmet or head protection that you wear into a raccoon with a pink hat. If it happens, the raccoon will perform a 4 hours long monologue about how hard it is for raccoons to play World of Warcraft with their paws, and claiming for raccoon-adapted keyboards. We don’t know for sure if it would do any good, but it will be enlightening no matter what.

“The Lich King is watching YOU! In blue-ray technology, apparently…”

Glyph of Blood Boil

  • What it is: Lowers the damage of your Blood Boil by 20% but causes it to slow affected targets for 5 sec. (Movement speed reduced by 30%.). Another tanking ability. Basically, we fail to see much advantage in using this glyph, since Blood Boil has lost its taunt effect and you just aggro by dealing damage. You can use other skills to take some benefit from speed reduction (i.e Desecration), so it pretty much sucks.
  • What we would like it to be: Increases your sex appeal by 20%. Technically, if you’ve got a high chance of attracting people, you can reach a critic strike that kills the monster you’re fighting. Chances are that you can’t be that sexy and you end up with one-eyed ogrish children calling you “daddy”.

Glyph of Chains of Ice

  • What it is: Your Chains of Ice causes 240 to 260 Frost damage in addition to its normal effect.
  • What we would like it to be: Death Knights are experts in making cocktails, especially mojitos and caipirinhas. This glyph increases their skills with an ice picker for 15 seconds, which covers the lap between a good cocktail and the beverage of your life.

Glyph of Icebound Fortitude

  • What it is: Your Icebound Fortitude costs no runic power. Another tanking ability, if you depend of your runic power’s cooldowns, having the ability is your main resource.
  • What we would like it to be: It makes appear your hamster, “Icebound”, who participates in the TNA wrestling competition dressed in a pink maillot. He will fight Tiger Mask there, and if succeeds, he will face my personal hero for the last couple of months: Curry Man. This won’t help your Death Knight much, but it will be freakin’ awesome.

Glyph of Death Grip

  • What it is: Increases the cooldown of Death Grip by 10 sec but stuns targets for 1 sec. Pretty self-descriptive, right?
  • What we would like it to be: After activating this glyph, the Death Knight starts off a Necr0 Tr00 death metal band named “Death Grip” in which he sings backing vocals and plays the banjo. Your hamster “Icebound” will play drums, and the raccoon will do some guitars. They cover Garth Brooks’ classic anthems like “Ain’t Goin’ Down (Til’ We Find a Better Healer)”, “Two of a Kind, Workin’ on a BG” or the hit parade “When the Wipe Rolls”.

Glyph of Death and Decay

  • What it is: Your Death and Decay spell deals 10% additional damage but the cooldown is increased by 10 sec.
  • What we would like it to be: It would be awesome to have this glyph as a combination for the “Death Grip” glyph. When used, this glyph adds a 30% of aggresiveness to “Death Grip”, and deliver some killing black metal stuff to his fans. Garth Brooks style, of course. When having the glyph in countdown, you’ll be able to meet some fans in the backstage and sign some vinyl versions of your recordings.

Glyph of Raise Dead

  • What it is: Increases your Ghoul’s total Strength by 10%.
  • What we would like it to be: The third combo point for “Death Grip”. This glyph allows the user to summon Milli Vanilli to sing in the band, hereby the name of the glyph: raise dead. After having a band fronted by Milli Vanilli, a Death Knight playing the banjo, a raccoon playing guitars, and a hamster playing drums… you can retire.
