Death Knights

Yesterday just before going to sleep I decided to destroy one more stack with my mighty army. I am a big boy of level 23 now and have nothing to be afraid of (just those Emerald Dragons) so why not get some more of experience for the end of the day. Just one stack and then I go to bed. One more stack of Death Nights on Pangaea 1vs1 map…

You all know what is the most dangerous skill of these Death Nights. I know it to. But it was the first time then I actually decided to kill them. And everything went good – I killed ~40 of them and only 5 left. Blood Furies made the last hit from my side. Before the strike it showed that they can kill 3-5 of the Death Knights. I prayed for the bigger damage or maybe luck but….. They killed 4 of them!

And so I see that lonely Death Knight galloping towards my 40 Grim Riders (I had two stacks of 40 of these). I see that red sword going up like in a slow movie. Then it slowly lands on my Grim Riders and kills 20 of them!

AAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! What have you done!!! I could not even blow that last Knight with some Fist of Wrath right into his nose – retaliation killed him. Aaaaaaa! ***** *** **** ** **!!! This is especially painful as during the whole game I lost ~12 Furies and ~10 Assassins…

Just wanted to write it out and let it go because even in my bed I still dreamt about that number hanging above my Grim Riders… -20…

Have a nice day everybody!

p.s. this post is not some kind of whining. And I do not agree with the opinion that DK and overpowered.

there are creeps that are significantly harder, and DKs are on top. The rest: Druid Elders (ALWAYS strikes first, lol.. and lightning is kinda scary), Archmages (damn fireballs), Grim Raiders (that charge, awww), All kinds of dragons (speed 9, joy.. -_-), Sprites (don't laugh, there is nothing worse than a band of sprites guarding the ore pit, they'll kill lots of your shooters.. which can be bad @ earlygame..) and Pit Lords (obvious). Maybe I've forgotten some.

Yes Sprites are the worst case if they defend some ore mine in the early game stage.

Not as bad as Sprites most of the times, I also hate ghosts (early game, of course). They're supposed to be 50% incorporeal but in most battles I miss them way more often than I hit them, resulting in losses when they retaliate or get to my shooters when they keep missing...

The map is called something like Pangea.. It's 1vs1 map.
The location of Death Knights is on the top left corner of the map.

What the heck were u thinking??? those nights r equivalant to the paladins! they were rejected in favor of the wraith so they probably were just angry. I never struck up and alliance with them but I agree they r powerfull. u poor guy.

i think the wraith looks better then the death knight though. and the current death knight neutral while not overpwoered as simply that- a neutral is simply too good as a tier 6

If i remember right no matter what the size of the stack is those kind of abilities work at least 20% of a time.

If you take many stacks of 1s they are just common cavaliers(same as grim raiders)

Death knights have a 25% chance to kill half of the stack.
Generally, 2x2 melee creeps are easy if 6 fodder stacks and one 1x1 shooter(furies too) stack is used. Death knights are even more easy than that because they can't reach anything 1st round and can't morale.
What's funny is that a lvl 3-5 magic hero with expert summoning is capable of totally owning them with fire trap/firewall(as long as he has enough mana)

summoning is probably the earliest school that can totally own them with little losses.
still anyone can do well with them with enough shooters. only 90 HP after all
