    I think it would be great to have a demon hunter class, one that is a dodge parry tank in mail, a melee dps and a ranged dps that has floating swords that fight the mob while the caster stands back and controls the blades from a distance.

    we could use another healing class but not sure how we could wrap that in the DH model

    Same way you do monk healer, melee dps generates a resource is turned into healing.

    Yeah but we have that.


    maybe summons a bunch of imps or minor demons to funnel their life into other players...something like that could work.

    My idea for bard's three specs: 1) healing through arcane music, 2) spell DPS, using wands and staves, with many status afflictions and abusing them with offensive arcane music, 3) mobile DPS which keeps zipping into and out of melee range, with some minor healing effects.

    Bards in LOTRO were so much fun. It would be a cool class.

    Here are some thoughts:

    A mail wearer seems most plausible ( 3cloth / 3leater / 2mail / 3plate)
    However, the previous 2 classes did not get a ranged dps specc - I personally would find it very lame if the next class doesnt get one either.
    A ranged weapon class is also an option.
    I dont see another pure dps class being added.
    There are no classes yet with a tank, heal and ranged specc only (with the exception of 4-specced druid).
    There are no intellect bows/guns/crossbows in game, but if 2 specs of a new class would need it; they can easily be added for that class; I mean, there was intellect leather for 2 speccs only aswell before monk came.
    A plate caster is an option. However a melee clothie doesnt seem that of an option as, for example, intellect ranged weapons are easier to add then whole sets of agility/strength cloth.
    There are already 5 classes who need agility as primary stat; but only 3 strength. This would make me think strength has another turn.

    Eh, I dunno about that. They kind of worked the whole Rune thing into Death Knights (and Runemasters without runes are basically Enhancement Shaman), and Rangers are just Hunters without the pet (although I would personally love a Ranger class).

    If I had to guess, I'd say Demon Hunter, which would be a mixture between melee and spell (and maybe ranged) damage, although mail armor doesn't really suit the classic Warcraft Demon Hunter, so it would probably be more like the Diablo Demon Hunter.

    Ranger sounds good, as a druid who got agility staffs ganked by hunters I would love to see another class pulling ranged weapons from Hunters. > (I'm just kidding, dont get all up in a huff.)

    I'd love to see some weapons spread out and some interesting combinations.


    Maybe Int Plate Wearing Battle mages that use ranged weapons converting Agi->Int
    Some melee class that can use/desire fast daggers
    Something to use Int Mail


    They could also just add a 4th spec to the classes and save time if they needed to...I'd love to see each class have a tank, healer, and DPS option.
    Mage Tank FTW!

    Plate: War, Pal, DK
    Leather: Rogue, Druid, Monk
    Cloth: Mage, Priest, Warlock
    Mail: Hunter, Shaman..?

    So in my humble opinion, the next class will be a class that can wear mail, and most likely will be a ranger (since they existed in the Warcraft Universe and should be introduced).

    blademaster: Light armored (Mail), highly mobile physical DPS class specalizeing in the use of two 1 handed weapons for is primary abilities and 1 two handed weapon for strong finishing moves.

    I think this needs to be broken down further

    Int/Spirit Cloth (3): Spriest, Holy Priest, Disc Priest

    Int Cloth (9 arguably): All priests, all mages, all warlocks

    Int Leather(3): Balance Druids, Resto Druids, Mistweaver Monks

    Agility Leather (7): Feral Druid, Guardian Druid, All rogues, Windwalker Monk, Brewmaster Monk

    Int Mail (2): Elemental Shaman, Resto Shaman

    Agility Mail (4): All hunters, Enhancement Shaman

    Int Plate (1): Holy Paladin

    Strength Plate (8): All Warriors, All DKs, Ret Pally, Prot Pally

    I think what's really needed is something else for Int Plate. A class that uses nothing but int plate would be good.

    Their arsenal includes longbows, grenades, hand-thrown weapons, and even dual-wielded crossbows.

    If any new class will be added, it will have to be a class that has a ranged DPS spec, and that's all I really care about. Unless the Shaman introduction in TBC for the Alliance counts (and even if you would, look at it from the horde's side), there hasn't been a new ranged DPS spec introduced since launch...

    I think adding another class might not what they want to do. Pretty much everything is covered now.

    They could add a few sub-classes to every class instead though. A choice that gives access to a new subset of talents and skills, but leaves the original specialisation choice untouched.

    Example:
    This way they could add "Demon Hunter" as a choice for multiple classes: Rogue, hunter, warlock.
    Which gives them all +5% crit, dominate demon, slay demon, invisibility as new "skills".

    Battlemage could be given to: Mages, Warlocks, Druids, Shamans as a choice.
    Giving them for example +5% spellpower, +25% armor, +25% parry, +25% health, taunt, a cooldown that increases your attack speed and automatically casts a key-spell on melee hit against enemies.

    Paragon to Priests, Paladins and Monks perhaps.
    -10% damage taken, instant heal cooldown, +50% of your heals being applied to the lowest health member in your group, raid, yourself, +5% holy damage to all your attacks

    etc. etc.

    This way some Warlocks could be "Affliction Battlemages" or "Demonology Battlemages" and others could be "Demonology Demon Hunter" or whatever they fancy.
    "Civilized men and bloody giants."

    I'll take a Necromancer class that uses Intellect Plate, or if they go crazy and do 4 specs for everyone, they can make it a DK spec.
