    We don't know anything about the next expansion. That's a pretty big claim based on that. It's also not guaranteed that the next expansion will feature a new class at all.

    • There are extreme implications that the next expansion will feature the Burning Legion. Wrathion literally mentions it directly in 5.3. There have been hints since WotLK, and pretty heavy ones in Cataclysm.
    • We're already exploring Illidan's story and showing that he wasn't as 'evil' as we thought.
    • Blizzard has outright said that they want to bring Illidan back as a protagonist and 'redeem' him.
    • Demon Hunter is the number one most desired class that hasn't already been implemented. (Just like Death Knights were, and then monks.)


    Put together the pieces. It's not rocket science.

    Essentials for me would be demon hunter (especially if its legion expac), Shaman earth guardian, Shockadin, Blood Mage and Warden. Don't care how they fit them in or to what class just as long as they happen and done right.

    Also I think there is promising signs in GCs tweets, how they designed the monk class (they suspiciously left out the crane spec which would fit a ranged dps class perfect) and finally I think druids were a test to see if it would work well with the community. I really think this is a possibility.

    We have a few hints. Not solid evidence, especially none that it will be the next. It's not rocket science, but you're closer to astrology there.

    Surely by now you've found that Blizzard is not very subtle. If they are giving hints, especially ones as direct as they are, they are going to do something. It's not 100% certainty, but I'd say there's an 80-90% chance what I am saying will come true in this case. There's writing on the wall, but you don't have to read it if you don't want to. Either way, we are digressing from the thread over something relatively petty. Blizzard will confirm (or deny) this on Blizzcon.

    Having plate int gear only for a spec is a bit dumb.
    It would be nice to see a DPS caster spec for paladins and a healer/DPS caster spec for Dks

    Mage : Blood Mage. A healer spec

    Rogue : A tank spec, possibly warden

    Hunter : A healer Spec using salves and medical darts

    Warlock : If they do not plan on a hero class Demon Hunter, then Demon hunter spec. If they do, then Apothethesis Tank spec

    At this point, I believe thats that for fourth spec, as it would hybridize the 4 pures, so they can do something other than "dps", there fore killing time qs of lfr/lfd. But if they plan on 4th to all, heres the rest i think.

    Warrior : Blademaster. 2h tank spec.

    DearthKnight : Necromancer/lich. Plate int caster dps.

    Priest : inquisitor dps. Burn them with holy light

    Monk : Red Crane range dps

    Shaman : Earth warden tank

    Paladin : Heretic, range caster using shadow. Another int plate

    Found this.

    Now since Druids already have 4 specs, do you think this might be a way to test reactions to, or gauge how updated or revamped forms might be accepted.

    Perhaps in the next expansion they might update druid forms to "Druid of the.....", like boomkin might become Druid of the Grove transforming into a Keeper of the Grove, etc...

    We know they are going to do something with the Burning Legion. Whats much more open to question is when, where and how. We had a good bit of the Naga in Cataclysm, we have Neptulons story to finsih, we had a visit form Azshara.

    There's a fair likelihood we will see her first. They could even do that and then have the Legion as a secondary storyline, to build them up as a threat and drive home that this second invasion of Azeroth is the real thing. The big deal. The one the worlds has been waiting for for the past 10k years. Maybe they could even do Infernals as a Public quest mechanic. Azshara would also provide an opening for an Emerald Dream raid and would allow for the return of Kul Tiras in tie for the 10th anniversary of WoW.

    Of course it is possible, needed, wanted or going to happen? No, by few and no.

    I wouldn't count on it. They added the seeds as a fun way for druids to use the fire cat form from firelands staff in a limited form, I wouldn't take it as an indication of getting new forms.

    Primal/Primalist for Warriors. It's a type of warrior that has gone down the path of Bestial Rage and have given into it completely.

    Could be interesting. What with the Zandalari and their Loa-Binders, Jaguar Warriors, etc.

    Mage : Could be of use of a arcane healer spec that uses spells to heal their allies.

    Rogue : If it was like a Warden style spec I would be happy and it would give Rogues a tank spec for them. Wardens would be the good choice for the new Rogue spec.

    Hunter : I hope Beast Mastery can become a tank spec in which you can use melee type weapons and have your pet help you out as well. It would give back the melee hunter abilities they once had, and add another spec for ranged DPS called the Ranger Hunter, and then Survival Hunters can heal their allies.

    Warlock : Doombringer can be like a Demon Form Tank Spec in which you turn into your demon form and use that to your advantage and your pets would help you out in the battles to but they would serve more like a distraction.

    Warrior : I think that they could be Barbarians or Blademasters for use in their weapon mastery.

    DearthKnight : Necromancer; Caster Death Knight that deals with healing his allies and can have a ally to help him healing and specialists in purple rune power.

    Priest : Could use another DPS or a ranged healer spec?

    Monk : Celestbringer The ranged spell caster Monk who uses the Stance of the Red Crane to their advantage by using spell power of their chi and making sure they use the balance of the Crane to their own use.

    Shaman : Earthwarden Shaman Tank Spec in use for two handed weapons that can use the elements to his/her advantage by using the powers of the elements. Good for taking a lot of damage and helpers others survive conflicts and the damage done to allies will be done to the shaman.

    Paladin : Not really sure what the fourth spec could be
    PM me for my Friend Code, Battletag, ETC...

    i'd like to see a pirate spec for rogues as a few people have said befor me , replace sinister strike/mutilate/ backstab with a ranged combo builder like pistol shot (tho then we need a new weapon to be added in game) that way rogues can still do a little damage from range but still limited to melee finishers kinda like how frost Dks have howling blast. Maybe a cooldown where they throw and barrel of gunpower and shoot it for super awesome aoe dps Give them a another kick to do dmg too always loved the kick animation and seeing monks with them fancy kicks makes me want it even more , replaced kidney shot with boot to the face

    I'd love to see a rogue healing spec. They could stab allies with medicine filled syringes to heal them.

    Actually - I'd suggest Bard and Ranger as alternate specs for a Rogue. Or, Bardic abilities at least. A Warden, I'm thinking, has enough potential and a strong enough theme for a Mail class, and with enough crossover to justify a ranged and healing/cleric style spec.

    Call it what it is. Demon Hunter.

    Priest : Could use another DPS or a ranged healer spec?
    Monk style Melee DPS.

    Paladin : Not really sure what the fourth spec could be
    Shockadin. Its the one 4th spec that been asked for since Vanilla.

I tell you what, it would be a hell of a lot more interesting than just getting 1 or two new abilities when we level up to new cap. Here are some ideas for each class for a 4th spec. I need a little help though it's kinda hard coming for seeing as how I'm not a Lore enthusiast.

    Death Knight - Healer - (Really cool concept blog linked) http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ay-a-DK-Healer
    Druid - ?
    Hunter - Shadow/Demon Spec
    Mage - Battlemage
    Monk - ?
    Paladin - ?
    Priest - ?
    Rogue - Field Medic Healer
    Shaman - Enhacement Tank
    Warlock - Demon Form Tank
    Warrior - ?
    Death Knight: Int based Lych, dps casting spec, focused on draining life from the foe.
    Druid: already have 4, no more
    Hunter: Melee spec, can be done with or without pet.
    Mage: Battlemage, that works well. I couldn't figure out one for Mages
    Monk: Casting dps spec
    Paladin: One hand + shield dps spec,
    Priest: Not sure, this one I'm having a really hard time with
    Rogue: I like your idea, not sure how it would go over.
    Shaman: Tank, but converts strength on shields to agility so they don't need special shields just for shaman
    Warlock: Demon Hunter-tank Only option here
    Warrior: Two hand weapon + shield dps spec


    You'd end up with 7 healers, 7 tanks,

    They would need to add strength dps shields

    OOH, rogues get to be ranged with bows/guns. Ranger like,

    has similarities with Hunters, of course, but it could be made to fit into combo point play style so it's still reminiscent of rogues. Also helps with bringing in dual wield pistols/crossbows.
