|Army of the Dead|
- "You're no use to me alive."
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 / directly. However, if these spells are active on the player prior to summoning the ghouls, they will benefit from the added haste.
