Only Azeroth’s most seasoned veterans possess the fortitude to wield Artifacts of legend against the Burning Legion. Your myth-forged weapon grows in power as you do, and your choices will change its abilities and the way it looks, sounds, and feels in combat. Fashion your Artifact into the perfect instrument of battle, and guide your faction in its most desperate hour.
A Death Knight is only as good as the weapon they wield. You have become one of the greatest heroes of Azeroth, one deserving of a weapon not only with power—but with a name.
Knights of Darkness
Death Knights have three distinct specializations: Blood, Frost, and Unholy. Each brings with it a unique identity that is reflected within the Artifact weapon choices.
- Blood Death Knights wield an axe of great power known as the Maw of the Damned. Forged for rending both soul and flesh, this weapon testifies to the wielder’s great power over mortality itself.
- Frost Death Knights bend the will of Frostmourne’s shattered remnants to their cold-hearted needs. Known as Icebringer and Frostreaper, these dual devices of death are waiting to be infused with even greater power.
- Unholy Death Knights, true to their nature, wield violence, plague, and death in the form of their ghastly blade, Apocalypse — a great and terrible weapon that leaves a trail of broken dreams in its wake.
Each Artifact is a symbol of the might of the Death Knight that wields it. Names have power — learn those of these mighty weapons well, for they will be your constant companions against the deadliest foe you’ve faced yet.
