There’s something I enjoy about death knights being aggressively affectionate. Something about them annoying the heck out of their partners when they try to show affection really just fits the DK aesthetic.
Actually it’s super confusing because the champion that was marked as the blood DK version of Kolitra is now Nazgrim, and Kolitra is now frost: http://legion.wowhead.com/champion=599#championnpcs
I mostly see spec as a game mechanic anyway. For example: Tev likes blood magic, but can do frost magic, and is actually quite adept at unholy through necromancy, but likes stabbing dudes more than he likes raising dudes.
To be fair, Tev would actually look at you like that if you asked him about this.

Tevruden raised Kyragos while he was still a part of the Scourge as a competence test. (He was the one Tev rode in the one quest in the DK starting zone.) After Arthas was killed, Tev released Kyragos from his service, but both of them are butts and Kyragos basically followed Tev around Northrend for a month until Tev agreed to take him on as basically his squire.
Despite both of them being butts, Kyragos has a way better attitude than Tev.
(Kyragos when taking humanoid form, looks like he’s in his late teens early twenties for an elf, and is maybe 5-5½ft.)
Stages of Deterioration in the Human Body
The Moment Of Death:
1. The heart stops.
2. The skin gets tight and ashen in color.
3. All the muscles relax.
4. The bladder and bowels empty.
5. The body temperature begins to drop 1 1/2 degrees Fahrenheit per hour.
After 30 minutes:
6. The skin gets purple and waxy.
7. The lips, fingernails, and toenails fade to a pale color.
8. Blood pools at the bottom of the body.
9. The hands and feet turn blue.
10. The eyes sink into the skull.
After 4 hours:
11. Rigor mortis has set in.
12. The purpling of the skin and the pooling of the blood continue.
13. Rigor continues to tighten muscles for another 24 hours or so.
After 12 hours:
14. The body is in full rigor mortis.
After 24 hours:
15. The body is now the temperature of the surrounding environment.
16. In males, the semen dies.
17. The head and neck are now a greenish-blue color.
18. The greenish-blue color spreads to the rest of the body.
19. There is a pervasive smell of rotting meat.
After 3 days:
20. The gas in the body tissues forms large blisters on the skin.
21. The whole body begins to bloat and swell grotesquely.
22. Fluids leak from the mouth, nose, vagina, and rectum.
After 3 weeks:
23. The skin, hair, and nails are so loose they can easily be pulled off the corpse.
24. The skin bursts open on many places on the body.
25. Decomposition will continue until the body is nothing but skeletal remains, a process that can take a month or so in hot climates, and two months or more in cold climates.
This is actually pretty interesting.
Important for writers…helps avoid either walking in and knowing someone died moments ago “from the smell” (unless that smell is piss and shit), or finding someone dead for a week that “looks like they’re sleeping.”
Reblogging for reference.
IC: The necromancer that raised him was weird, and probably more suited to making abominations, and so he kinda challenged himself to make Tev as big as he possibly could with the parts of a single
blood high elf.
OOC: I saw a lot of the blizzard concept art looked like this:
All of them look massive. I kinda wanted to do the same thing with Tevruden.
Tevruden usually takes tea, then dumps enough sugar and lemon in it so that he can taste it.
He even has little skull-shaped sugar cubes:
how and when did the whole DK RP community come to the consensus that they have “lichfire” eyes
I’ve never ever seen that term used anywhere in the game or lore and yet everyone seems to accept that that’s just what the glowy blue eyes are called
I think it comes from the fact there’s a actual blue fire that usually shows up in the braziers when you’re in scourge areas:
You can see how it looks a lot like a DK’s eyes. I think it’s also assumed that the blue glow actually works more like Arthas’ in that it looks like this
rather than the glowing blue orb that the PCs actually have.
Tevruden genuinely enjoys murdering people, and usually doesn’t feel remorse. He generally limits himself to ‘acceptable targets’, whichever enemy the horde has itself pointed at at the moment. Given that everything he kills is ‘socially acceptable’, and the mindset of most of the Horde on killing your enemies, it allows him to basically go out and kill things whenever he wants; losing control is not typically a problem.
This is possible. Arthas probably didn’t want dudes with softball-sized nuts running around representing the scourge.
I was thinking about the Timeless Isle, and what sort of effect it would have on a death knight. The overall theme you get while talking with the NPCs there is that nobody can tell how much time has passed between events.
I was thinking that a death knight might remain in whatever state they were in when they arrived on the Timeless Isle. That is, if they got there and stopped killing things, they’d not go insane from their need to inflict pain. However, killing things while on the timeless isle, does not bring them any release, either. So a death knight that was on edge when they got there would remain on edge until he left, regardless of what he killed.
