A human death knight and his army of the dead.

Army of the Dead is a level 82 Unholy death knight ability, and the first death knight ability to be announced. It is a channeled ability which summons a number of ghouls to fight for the death knight. These creatures run around and attack nearby hostile targets at random.

Unlike most other guardian pets, ghouls cannot benefit from [Bloodlust]/ [Heroism] directly. However, if these spells are active on the player prior to summoning the ghouls, they will benefit from the added haste.

Background

This is a variation of a spell type, commonly used by Death knights in previous games, called Raise Dead in Warcraft II, Animate Dead in Warcraft III, and Undead Minions in the RPG.
