But warlocks don't absorb demon powers. They use demon magic (not powers like cunning or controlling races or corrupting entire races), they summon demons (make a pact with them), and enslave demons.A Warlock summons a demon , sacrifices it, absorbs its power and then fights bad guys. If Blizzard canonises the Demon Huntersa bilityt oa bsorb demon power - where is the difference?
Why can not priest be someone who sacrifice his own holy spells to do damage and not heal? Why can Priest not have a branch of magic that allows him to focus all that power into melee combat?Why can not a Warlock be someone who deliberately risks his own soul to fight fire with fire by turning demon against demon? Why can a Warlock not have a branch of magic that allows him to focus all that power into melee combat.
Yes, they take all that and give it to Paladins (with different lore, mechanics and aesthetics). They can do the same with DH.
You are right here:It doesn't. The gameplay difference between a Warlock sacrificing a demon for power and a Demon Hunter killing one for power doesn't exist. Both are going to have to have the ability to summon a demon, both are going to have to have the ability to gain a buff through killing it.
Warlock: Ranged magical caster using summons.
DH: Melee magical/physical user.
P.D: I'm not understanding why DH should have any summon ability.
