    THEORY: The next class will be evil/dark-themed

    So I thought of this at work today and it seems, idk, plausible? In all the classes, there seems to be a running theme of one 'Good' class, one 'Neutral' class, and one 'Evil/Darker' class for each armor type. This may be a bit of a stretch, but I think it wouldn't be a horrible assumption to assume the next class is going to be darker. Think about it.

    For Cloth, Warlocks are 'Bad,' Mages are 'Neutral' and Priests are 'Good'
    For Leather, Rogues are 'Bad,' Druids are 'Neutral' and Monks are 'Good' (Druids and Monks are arguably interchangeable.)
    For Mail, There is no 'Bad' class, Hunters are 'Neutral' and Shamans are 'Good'
    For Plate, Death Knights are 'Bad,' Warriors are 'Neutral' and Paladins are 'Good'

    So by that logic, the next class will be a mail armor wearing and evil/dark themed.

    And once again the Demon Hunter / Dark Ranger would fit that role. Damn it Blizzard start working on it already.

    That doesn't all fully apply, but close enough to be interesting, indeed. Would make sense, with the mail-wearing demon hunters people keep talking about wanting.

    For all we know they could be.

    I think the hunter is very evil class personally. They take the animal and try to make the slave then feed and eat the other meats. Nature is not for the man to tame and make slave. Maybe they make a mail neutral class instead.

    OT what is your job OP this job sounds fun to think of this
    Trust your doubt. Always fight for your beliefs. That is the path beyond thought.

    It doesnt really apply this way, for example Shamans aren't ''good'', Theres Dark Shaman, Ner'zhul, Shamans that served The Old Gods etc. Dark themed classes depend clearly on the theme of the expac, and atm, we just cant know what it might exacly be so.

    It will be themed after the Demon Hunter, but possibly called another name. With Illidan most likely to return next Xpac "most likely Burning Legion based", I could see Illidan creating a new type of class based on technique e learned while trapped in the Nether.

    I didn't care about this thread until I saw this post in its hilarious level of ridiculousness/stupidity.

    I think the next class is not going to be one of the greatly expected ones (demon hunter, dark ranger, etc.). If I was Blizzard, I would save making those for when the game needed a really big enthusiasm boost to avoid massive subscription losses (far larger than any they were having lately).

    Seems like a caster would be the next class introduced into the game, DK and Monk were the last two and they're melee on offense, plus tank and healer respectively. I am guessing Blizz would introduce a new offensive caster class because that would probably be the most interesting thing. Because imagine if they introduced a new melee class, that would start to get boring. They need something different, something new to really make things interesting. I dont think it would be a Demon Hunter, thats too much like regular hunter. And personally I hate Engineers in fantasy games. For me Engineer is the complete opposite of "fantasy".

    What would be cool is if they took Demonology off Locks and made it into a new class, so that locks dont have demons or pets anymore. A new demon controller/caster class, and locks would be more Necromancer like summoning the dead and spirits and would have shadow and disease spells. And the demon caster class would rely heavily on a demon pet plus summoning demons allot and fire spells.


    And of course we all know that a new caster class would just be pure over the top face roller OP at least until the next patch after it was introduced.

    We SHOULD get demon Hunters. They could be Mail Tanks! Because that makes more sense than Leather tanks! But to really make it sweet, they could have a Tank Spec, a Ranged Spec, and a Melee spec. Kinda like how Shaman have Ranged/Melee/Healing. I don't believe there is a current class out there with a Ranged/Melee/Tank setup.

    Ranged caster or ranged physical?

    Anyway, OP's analysis is pretty bare-bones; class morality is left pretty ambiguous if you dig deeper than the surface. If I were to implement a class, it'd be an Engineer/Tinker with Mail gear who shoots lots of bullets, but that might just be me. If it were up to me, I wouldn't stick a class in, but some sort of alternate advancement similar to Path of the Titans.
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.

    Why do I feel that the claims posed by the op are be about is about as profound a declaration as the theory that air is good and should be breathed in regularly?

    Almost every bit of lore about Demon hunters points to them wearing little to no armor. Usually no armor. And what's not tanky about a class that is a giant bear or one that is all about it's nimble martial prowess and avoiding/deflecting damage. Not every tank has to be a meat who's answer to an axe to the face is to take said axe to the face.

    1) They might choose not to add any more classes to WoW. Eleven is a lot as it is.

    2) If they do, it likely won't be until the expansion AFTER the next one. Next expansion is too soon after Monks.

    3) If they do make Demon Hunters, they will have to have a totally different ability set than in Warcraft III since their iconic abilities are taken by other classes, notably Warlocks. In WoW terms a Demon Hunter is just a Night Elf Warlock.

    That said, I think the OP does have something there with that rough pattern. Blizzard probably didn't do it deliberately though.

    Ummm if a Demon Hunter is like ANYTHING it would be like a rogue/warlock hybrid...

    Demon Hunter from D3/Dark Ranger would fit better than Warcraft Demonhunter. There's been extensive threads on this, but I'll throw down the gist:

    - Lack of 3rd Mail class
    - Lack of another ranged physical DPS

    D3 DH/DR fit this niche.

    Warcraft Demonhunter
    - cloth or leather
    - melee fighter
    - metamorphosis/demon magic

    These are all covered already. We just got monks which are DW leather melee, alongside rogues who are also DW leather melee. The likelihood of getting another one is nil.

    They would definitely need to do a major retcon on Demon Hunter lore to continue it.

    For instance - Illidan was the first DH, he got to run around naked and melee things. He also got an insane amount of power ups (Skull of Guldan, Eyes from Sargeras himself). All the Blood Elf and Night Elf initiates who tried to follow his example were all killed because they lacked his power ups.

    As a result, the new demon hunters had to adapt to wearing heavier armor for protection and/or possibly fighting from a distance since they lacked Illidan's durability.

    This is a good observation but I believe next class will be ABOVE ALL the armor set currently in game, maybe they will be wood wearing class or some new kind of type of armor, I believe, they will be like hunter but they will not have the use for the pets, they will have maybe wooden machhine guns or something of this nature. I believe that the pandas and the nature love of this expansion is preparing us for a wooden armor class, maybe they will be a hunter type, maybe they will be samurai type like warrior+monk COMBINE.

    So yes, my guess is they wear some kind of wood, as to what faction they will be with I do not know, but maybe neutral, I do not believe someone who wears wood could be evil, unless of course they are satanist or of the wicked faith or something like this, you see what I mean?
    I'm mean because you're stupid.
