Illidans type fits more in Warcraft then Diablo style
Illidan Demon hunter
Diablo III demon hunter
A combo of both
I don't care
THIS thread =)
I'd like a WoW themed demon hunter in WoW.
Melee dps spec, range dps spec, tank spec. BAM. Only possible problem is a lot of iconic DH abilities such as metamorphosis are already in another class.
I don't want any new classes. They need to start doing more with the current ones.

Except monk tanks use leather and other weapons. And the way I see it, a demon hunter tank spec would be an anti-caster archetype. When were there rogue tanks lol? There is a difference between pseudo/off tanking and main tanking...
Or that could be exactly what monk tanks are.
And exactly what Rogue tanks were.
Actually I made a mail wearer who uses agile dual glaives and fel magic as opposed to a two hander plate vampire.And an Anti-caster Archetype... You mean like Death Knights?
Weapon blocks, anti-caster archetype. You just made leather Death Knights.
just check my sig and see if it sparkles any reaction in u
I went with a combo of both, an Illidan Demon hunter would be interesting and what I'd pick over the Diablo version, more fitting for WoW but feel like they could have some fun mixing and matching.. at least one a pure ranged and one pure melee.
I voted I dont care since it wasnt an option to vote for "I do not want Demon Hunter as a class".
Do not like them in D3 and I do not care too much of the Illidan version either.
I really don't see the parallel between WoW monk and D3 monk.
D3 monk is a holy warrior, based more on western style warrior-priest archetype.
WoW monk is more eastern style monk focusing on mysticism and kungfu.
As for demon hunters. How i would like demon hunters to be implemented:
warglaives forever, give them a skill (ala runeforging) that allows them to covert onehanders into warglaives, more work for the art department sure but these are Demon Hunters we are talking about here.
make them use mail, we have enough leather users already.
Melee dual wield dps, obvious.
Caster dual wield dps, thats right double caster weps baby... sounds OP but they could balance it easily.
Dual wielding tank, I thought DKs were going to be DW tanks when they first announced them, i was disappointed they never went that way with them... I think it would be badass, parry with two weapons!

Classic Warcraft DH. D3 demonhunter has basically nothing to do with the demonhunters of the Warcraft universe.
I'd like to see a mixture of Rogue/Enh/Lock/DK. Or something totally new and innovative with the basic concept of the classic Warcraftian DH.
Definitely Illidan demon hunters. (Or maybe implement it into combat rogues when they finally decide to revamp rogue like they did warlocks)
I would like to be able to dual wield crossbows on my hunter though. (Maybe make it a survival only thing too?)
Hell, I'll be damned if they do this when they revamp rogue:
Nightblade: A ninja-like assassin mastered in poison and ambushing their preys before vanishing back into the darkness (Combining the current assasination and subtlety)
Demonhunter: Drawing strength from the demons they have fell, devoted to slay all demons on Azeroth and beyond. (Combat rogue with unique demonhunter abilities)
Bladedancer: Bolstering their abilities with songs, (they sing their enemies to death), ok not that, they are adapted in raining deaths on their foe from afar, attacking with both their songs and their magically enchanted blades (a ranged dps, they can still be using the melee weapons as in other specs, similiar to the new shuriken toss which replace melee attacks with a range attack).
The three things I want in WoW, demon hunters, bards, and distinction between rogue specs.
This could replace the new class they try to introduce every other expansion, and also help with the low pop of rogues.
One can always dream...

What I want, more than anything in WoW, is a class that can tame demons, just as hunters tame beasts. Also I wish that Unholy DKs could tame undead in place of their ghoul. But on topic, I would rather it be very close to Illidan, much like the Deathknights who trained under Arthas, and his lot.
Ironically.. the D3 priest is very much based on Eastern Monks, and is a better represenation of them than the WoW monk... who seems to be more of a soothsayer martial artist mix.
