2 Words: Troll Paladins

there are powerful death knights, period.
being a warlock is a choice. you can grab a few books about dark sorcery and start learning by yourself, no matter how weak you are.
being a death knight is not a choice. the scourge will raise you as undeath, and unless they think you are strong, you'll be a ghoul. only very strong warriors and paladins, strong enough to catch the lich king's eye, will be turned into death knights.

Also, Death Knights get to start at a higher level than the rest, I have accepted that, to a point... But I do not want to ever see Blizzard doing it again, because it was a complete failure of an idea.
Demon Hunters aren't former champions, they weren't forced to become what they are, there is no reason for them not to start at level one.
It must have at least a class, otherwise there won't be content for toons below the new high leveling content
I would expect more races being playable. But more than just one or two - all the ogres, naga, furbolgs, ethereals and whatnot.
I hope blizz glues demon hunters into warlocks, though
4th Specialization seems too huge and in my opinion totally unrealistic..
You have shamans being healers , ranged dps and melee...
you have paladins being tanks healers and dps
so what? add a shaman tank and a paladin caster dps? It just doesn't add. And this is not Rift
About a 4th specialization being pvp oriented. After all the efforts from community and blizzard to make a viable pvp "balance" on most specs classes..it doesn't make sense to add a pvp oriented specialization that will dump all this effort to the bin.
I don't really understand the hype over new character models. I mean, the game's textures are low , the polys are low too (compared to newer mmorpgs). Asking all the time from blizzard , new models, just doesn't help. I almost feel that the demand is made-up from fake "players" so that blizzard won't bother with textures and polygons..They create a hype about new animations/models and we all want it, even if we may even not see huge differences.. Is this a possibility? Yes it is, don't deny it
About next expansion, well before that, it seems, to me, that MoP is one of the richest expansions in content. Last time i had that was at TBC. WotlK was ok but it made us melt our butts to do 25/25 dailies.. Anyway, for new expansion, imo blizzard has made a nice production line on delivering new content inside an expansion fast and reliably. MoP shows that blizzard is mature on this and i won't be surprised if next expansion is even better, bigger, richer.
I have a feeling we will get only to 99 or 100lvl and i think i read somewhere there will be another expansion after that? (please correct me if i am wrong)
I want a new class i am sure of it, should be Mail gear character. We have 3 leather classes, 3 plate classes, 3 cloth classes and 2 mail gear classes. You know now why i expect a mail gear class totally new.
I have a feeling it will be a ranged class on 2 specializations with the 3rd being melee. I would guess it could be an arcane archer of sort. Yes the way i see it, maybe a Demon Hunter specialization or whole class as name could fit in there..with mail gear though )
Now Lorewise i would prefer we didn't stumble on old lore already stretched and seen but get something completely new. Emerald dream? Or perhaps another plane of existence?
People have come to expect a new race and class each xpac, so it would be kind of dumb for blizzard to not add them. There are some wow players that quit, and come back for new xpacs for the first 6 months or so. Blizzard wouldn't want to lose out on the surge of money they make just over the excitement of a new class and race.
I think making all classes available to all races would be really cool though.
What doesn't destroy us, only makes us stranger
Personally, I hope for neither, I would like it if they concentrated on other aspects of the game as we have way too many classes and races as it is. I am certainly not alone in these thoughts.
a smart warlock won't try to contract a demon he can't beat. the vanilla quests explained it well. you had to wait until you were strong enough, gather the reagents, summon a demon, beat it up to a pulp and than make the contract. that's why you only get the succubus at lvl 20, for instance.
now, the problem with demon hunters is that the demon hunting training itself is too heavy and self harming. the training, not the practical combat. if you aren't strong already before you start it, you can't finish it.
if they bake it into warlocks, they could just say that "you learn to be a warlock until you are strong enough, than you take the rites to be a demon hunter", but if they make it it's own class, than it'll need to be a hero class.
It's illogical for them to begin at any level other than one.
