I picked up and levelled Skinning on my warrior to 225 before tonight's server shutdown. It should pay off eventually. ;)
The world's first level 80 Death Knight has a screenshot. The first US one followed shortly after, on Tichondrius: Essay.
Give these guys a couple of weeks and they will start to look very purple and shiny indeed. ;)
I have yet to roll my Death Knight, but when I do, I intend to take him all the way to 80. I can't wait to get into raiding. I'm tempted to make either Warrior or Death Knight my main, but I have sowed too much into my mage for that to ever happen. >.<
