3. How do I runeforge?
4. What runes are there and what do they do?
5. Why runeforge when you can enchant?


1. Disclaimer: This guide is here predominantly because since you are now able to skip the Death Knight starting experience, fresh death knights might consider questing not important and thus skip to the rest of the content. The first part of the guide is aimed at explaining the basics of the skill to them, whereas the second one is intended to show more interested Death Knights how to properly apply runes to their weapons and what factors to take into account when runeforging.

2. What is runeforging? Runeforging is the ability to put enchant-like bonuses on your weapon(s), free of charge. This spell is unique to Death Knights and can only be done by visiting a runeforge.

3. How do I runeforge?: You apply a rune to your weapon by doing a series of things, the first one being visiting one of the available runeforges. You have a few options:
- The runeforge in Acherus: The Ebon Hold (a zone which you can get to by using your "Death Gate" spell), which everyone can use
- The runeforge in Stormwind City, for Alliance players
- The runeforge in Orgrimmar, for Horde players.

Once you have reached a runeforge, open your spellbook and look for the "Runeforging" skill:



Click the spell. Once that happens, a tab will pop up with a list of runes you can apply to your weapon. Simply select the rune you want, click "Engrave", find the weapon on which you want to put it and click it.



4. What runes are there and what do they do?

There are many runes in the game. Hover over the rune`s name with your mouse cursor to see what the rune does.

1. Rune of Cinderglacier
2. Rune of Lichbane
3. Rune of Razorice
4. Rune of Spellbreaking / Spellshattering
5. Rune of Swordbreaking / Swordshattering
6. Rune of the Fallen Crusader
7. Rune of the Stoneskin Gargoyle

5. Why runeforge when you can enchant? Simply put, because enchants cost money and are not that useful, whereas runes are created to maximize Death Knight potential and are free. And, no, you can not have both a rune and an enchant on at the same time.

How can u tell that spellshattering/spellbreaking are useless? Every top dk(at least they used to be, jk i saw this at me, dolamor and mex xD) should use it. Why?vs a spell cleave like Mls/ godcomp/shadowplay you should carry this type of rune. It's the only enchant in game that reduces the silence duratiom by 50% + it reduces all magical damage taken by 2%(or at least it should). One more wrong thing. Razorice>Cinderglaciar. The razorice debuff stacks 5 times -> 10% frost damage increase at all time, so u don't have to wait for a proc to deal damage as cinderglaciar. Overall razorice does more.dps than cinder. Also evrey unholy/frost dk should carry 3 weps: for each major pvp enchant(fallen crusader, spellshattering/swordshatterig). Cheers!

Greetings.

Your post was made obsolete by the changes I have made to the guide. Each rune is now linked to the Freakz database.

Sincerely, Wedinn.
