    We have so many of these posts talking about class ideas. We don't need another one, sorry.

    Do you get paid to use extra question marks in your posts? Do you have a monthly quota to fill?

    Yeah, there's not many about just what roles a new class should fill. This is a valid discussion - could shape what concepts for new classes are possible.

    I kind of want a class that's tank,melee dps,range dps.

    Tinker.

    Tanks with an oil/fire based machine spec. Intellect based (if only for the sake of having a unique int tank)

    Ranged DPS with turrets, uses agility guns (And bows/crossbows for gameplay reasons)

    Healer based on spraying chemicals and salves.

    Current class composition looks like this;

    Pure DPS: Warlock, Hunter, Mage, Rogue
    Hybrids: Shaman, Warriors, Priests, Death Knights
    Full Hybrids: Monks, Druids, Paladins

    So, it would seem that the next class should be a Full (Tank/Heal/DPS) hybrid.

    Ranged tanky dps healer.

    Though I'd imagine a full hybrid.

    dam no vote for pure dps.

  11. #11
    Pure classes still have their place in the game, but it would be another excuse to role dps instead of tanks/heals when every class already fills a dps role.

    No new class. Would create even more imbalance imo, leave it alone.

    Warden.

    Melee tank
    Ranged dps
    Healer/melee dps? idk

    ---------- Post added 2013-06-25 at 10:42 PM ----------

    Gonna expand the Warden idea a little -

    3 plate
    2 mail
    3 leather
    3 cloth

    So: Mail

    4 pure
    4 hybrid
    3 full hybrid

    So: Full hybrid

    6 ranged dps
    7 melee dps
    5 tanks
    5 healers

    So: Not a melee dps

    Additional Evidence:

    - Burning legion expansion likely, must fit this theme
    - Only 1 class competes for ranged weapons, highly unlikely that this pattern will continue

    Mail-wearing tank/healer/ranged dps that will compete for ranged weapons, and that fits with a burning legion expansion.

    Really if we already have classes with 4 specs, no reason we shouldn't have tank,heals,and both types of DPS.

    However it should make sense for whatever class they bring, I really don't think they should just arbitrarily give it certain specs because of what we already have or don't have.

    Frankly, there aren't many archetypes left that could logically perform all three roles. Due to that fact, the remaining choices in classes is quite limited.

    If Blizzard continues basing expansion classes on WC3 heroes, the next class will be obvious. However, Blizzard could completely blindside us with an entirely new concept.

    In the end, the obvious patterns are mail armor, ranged physical weaponry, hybrid, distinct from existing classes, and a class that can be applied to several races.
