Death knights should IMO
these from begining to end. Their damage is quite high and
is just too great to pass up.
Immune to dk mc in challenge mode. :|
Enterprising Death Knights may notice that our shiny new Control Undead spell works on these guys.
While you will be unable to summon your normal ghoul while controlling it,
that's okay because the Risen Guard deals far more damage anyway and its Unholy Blade ability increases all damage taken by the target. Very, very useful.
Just remember that Control Undead only lasts five minutes! You should probably dismiss and re-control your newfound buddy before and after every boss to ensure it does not break free at an inopportune moment. Also take note that, when freshly controlled, the Risen Guard will be in Defensive stance and as such will not attack unless you take damage. Be sure to swap it to Assist Stance after every re-application of Control Undead.
You should probably also inform your group not to worry if it suddenly breaks free so that they do not attack or crowd control it.
EDIT: As of 5.4, you may now have your ghoul AND a controlled undead simultaneously. Unholy DKs may now proceed to let loose their best evil laughs.
That weapon would be a perfect fit for a frost dk with cata transmog :P any1 got any clue fo the weapon's id or smth?
For anyone wanting to know for transmog purposes, weapon model is
Cataclysmic Gladiator's Greatsword
, though the Risen Guard's specific coloring (blue runes) doesn't seem to be obtainable by players.
