    So what's next class?

    We had tank class added in Wotlk, Tank / Healer class in MoP, think it's time for pure DPS class next?
    Or even better: 4th tree for everybody! Suck it Druids. ^^

    I'd like to see a 4th talent tree, but I'm not sure it would work for classes that aren't hybrids. Unless they were to add a hybrid element to pure classes. I'm not sure if many people that play a pure DPS class would like that though.
    Personally I steer towards hybrids because I like the idea that I can fulfill a variety of roles. I'm guessing that doesn't appeal to some people that play pure classes.
    Anyway, would be cool to have say, a new tanking tree for Shamans, a ranged dps (holy magic based) tree for paladins and so on.
    I understand that probably wouldn't appeal to a lot of people, but I think it would be good.

    If they have to add something, we need a pure dps caster/ranged plate class.

    We need specs for caster plate (currently only Holy Paladin) and caster mail (currently only Elemental and Restoration Shaman) to balance out the drops.

    Different factors are involved.

    - Filling a niche: What hasnt been done before, what would make the class feel unique?
    - Weapons and Gear: Which new class would make use of gear already in the game, without increasing competition for the most popular gear/weapons already?
    - Delivering on the fantasy: How will this new class 'feel' according to a player's expectation?

    Armor:
    Cloth: 3 classes.
    Leather: 3 Classes.
    Mail: 2 Classes.
    Plate: 3 Classes.

    Weaponry:
    Agility Daggers - used only by one class
    Guns, Bows and Crossbows - used only by one class

    Whatever the 12th class is gonna be, logically it should be a melee/ranged mail-wearing class that's different enough from Hunters and Enhancement shamans. Either that or someone who can make use of paladin plate.

    Maybe a demonhunter, borrowing from both Diablo3's demonhunter and Warcraft3's demonhunter. The former; Dualwielding crossbows. The latter: Daggers become glaives... somehow.

    A ragnarok online's style of Bard wearing plate ... being a supporter but just *dps*... yeah could be nice.

    I've always thought the Priestess of Elune would make a brilliant new class.

    Hybrid, healer/DPS

    Two DPS trees, 1 ranged and 1 melee; 1 healer tree

    Ranged uses bows/guns/crossbows, same as Hunters; melee uses daggers, swords, general agility stuff

    Armor class: mail

    Would be petless too so those Hunters who hate their pets can re-roll successfully! Just seems like this class could fill a nice niche.

    Class: Pirate

    Specs: Filibuster (melée dps), Buccaneer (tank), Privateer (ranged dps).

    Armor: Mail

    Weapons: Agility daggers, 2h sword/mace/axe, guns/crossbows.

    How do we introduce the class in the lore?: After the discovery of Pandaria, the war between Horde and Alliance is bloodier than ever: the two factions are exploring new ways to state their supremacy, starting from the seas of Azeroth...


    Yeah, I'm fond of Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Hopefully we are never going to see a demon hunter in wow.

    One in d3 is enough ( even though they would be different ).

    I'd "vote" for 4th specs.

    I want a demon hunting warlock tanking spec. that glyph of demon hunting is so cool, so full of unexplored potential
    Warlorcs of Draenorc made me quit. You can't have my stuff.

    IMO, such class shouldn't be added into game ever, as it would be the first time.
