Undead Death KnightDeath Knights in Mists of Pandaria are not undergoing any changes other than the talent revision that all classes are going through. Runes, Runic Power, abilities, pets, etc. will all function pretty much as they did before.

As far as the talent system, take all your Cataclysm builds and chuck ’em. The whole thing is being completely revised.
