Beginner/Budget guide to leveling up a DK by @Stupid_Dragon

(These are not pet builds, but it is easier to follow them and then switch up with pet gear, skills and devotions once you farm the necessary items)

One more, for fwuffy!

Enough Reserbirbs for now.

Fine… one more. This is the last one, I swear.

Ravager also falls, but took almost twice the time of my Pet Apostate. Kind of understandable, given the lack of RR.

Actually, I’m trying to make a tanky physical skeletons general DK right now, with War Cry and Assassins Blade. It’s probably crazy and absolutely non-viable, but I really like the idea.

Best of Lucks. Let me know if it works out :slight_smile:

I personally am not a good pilot, so even on a dedicated pet build I find myself losing Skeletons too much. So the idea here was to focus mostly on invulnerable pets like Reap Spirits and the Spiders. Blightfiends with transmuter have low enough CD so it doesn’t matter that much when they die. Then I went full on Pet damage and hoped it would work out ;p.

pet DK … wat? :eek:

Yes, pet DK :cool:

Ok, so Spiritseeker Cord turned out to be better in this case over Shadowfiend. Updating the build.

So, do you guys know what it feels like to be killed by a nonsensical build named after an NES era game?

Callagadra Knows.

Welp, I now think that out of Shaman, Occultist & Necromancer, Shaman is the weakest pet class atm. (Your experiences may vary)

I did not expect the build to perform this well considering I thought it up as a joke

I kinda agree with that. Shaman doesn’t really support pets that nicely, imo. The only thing he has is exclusive skill and Mogdrogen’s pact buff or whatever was the name. Wind Devil kind of sucks for pets since it’s slow as fuck and usually doesn’t do anything and Swarm is just okay.

Included a level up guide for those who want to try this build or Death Knight in general.
