OH NOES! LOL
You know when they call it out like that....just yeah.
Methinks it is at least worth while to accept the possibility that ENGINEERING PROFESSION = Tinker Inspiration/Implementation.
Let us also not forget that the class doesn't need to be called "Tinker". Technician, Inventor, Mekgineer, Artificer, Gear Master, Mechanic, etc. works just as well.

Its not that difficult.
GC also said maybe someday, So slim chances it will come anytime soon if it comes.
Also do we really need 9 tinker threads
I like how this is being used to confirm that Blizzard is not currently developing Tinkers while simultaneously being used to confirm that Blizzard is pursuing development of Tinkers.But maybe one of the designers will come up with a pitch perfect design that blows us away someday. Shrug.
The game is already 10 years old.

I didn't make nine threads about this. I didn't even make this one.Originally Posted by Sukhoi
Technology class isn't covered. Technology is a pretty major aspect of the Warcraft universe. An aspect that no class utilizes.I don't beleive there will be any more classes. Everything is covered.
i think everyone here is off their rocker if they think theyre going to release a whole new other class right after they released one in MoP. i just dont see it happening
Oh Teriz...if they don't call it a Tinker then how does it fit into your pattern about WC3 hero classes. I mean DK is DK, Monk is Monk.
Oh wait your own rules don't apply when it is a negative versus your OPINION.
Ready to admit there is at least some chance that Engineering is Tinker? Even if it is 1% the fact is it is possible, your continued denial is making you look so bias and horrible.
Ready to own up yet?
It stands to reason that the Tinker would get the same treatment as the Brewmaster. Make the hero units name one of the specs and expand from there with a broader class title. Makes sense, given the scope of the technology archetype.
Why can they not be part of the Demon Hunter Warlock Spec? Why can the Warlock not be a "badass"?What do Warlocks have to do with Demon Hunters being badass? Nothing. It's a different class that has its own identity and its own reasons for being awesome. Having spectral sight and runic tattooes? Not a part of the Warlock identity, and doubtful to ever become it.
They aren't part of the Warlock class simply because you say they aren't, simply because you don't see them as part of it.
Actually - I do. But if the DH story is that they are effectively a Warlock, then the DH story will BE the Warlock story. DHs will just be a melee focussed Warlock, drawing on the same power source, using the same spells, having the same look and theme. That isn't a conflict of interest. That would simply be the DH story not being the one you want.Then they wouldn't have a story at all. It would be a Warlock story, not a Demon Hunter story. You understand how that's a conflict of interest, right? Oh, you don't? That's because you don't give a fuck about character class identity.
Right now - Warlocks and DHs have a huge overlap in theme, look, abilities and Blizzard has continued to strengthen the links between the classes. You may not see these links as important, but you can't credibly deny that they exist. You can't also deny that Blizzard doesn't want any more homogeneity in the game and that existing classes take a higher priority over potential classes.
I understand the desire for a DH standalone class, but all that brings that a Warlock 4th spec doesn't would be two other specs and the ability to be called Demon Hunter in quest blurbs. Everything else can be achieved via a single spec; that's all it takes. Other specs can also have their own flavor, their own identity, their own way of doing things. But for some reason, you don't seem to think that a Demon Hunter can have all that and still be a Warlock. And the only reason you've given is - you don't want it to be that way.
Warlocks can't be DHs any more than Rogues can. Demon Hunter couldn't work as 4th lock spec, because of its rather obvious tiers to Rogue class. Either stand alone class (or spec of new class), or nothing.
So do you believe Warlocks can make the transition to all permanently blind themselves, gain ritualistic tattooes? Or do you believe that Demon Hunters do not need any of that to function as a Warlock spec?
