    Honestly I'd rather they went with something that captured the epic feel of BC, but without some of the gaudy frills that came with the Illidari. It'd still be way better than time travel ending in "it was all non-canon..."

    There's also that little issue with Warlocks becoming more like Demon Hunters every expansion. Demonology could be inching more towards the DH concept than we realize, especially given that Blizzard has to do something with Dark Apotheosis.

    Pretty much this for most us true demon hunters.

    Anyway, The Dark Embrace doesnt mean that its filled with a bunch of ghosts. There could be plenty of demon hunters in hiding. Though, I have high doubts they would be added to "WoD"

    im all for a demon hunter class, but what do demon hunters have to do with draenor in the past?

    illidan wasnt even out of his cage yet in that time so none of his demon hunters were there, and i doubt there were any demon hunters hanging out with turalyons gang considering night elves werent even known about yet

    You're kidding right? Gameplay always overrides lore. Class abilities fall under gameplay. So if we have an existing class that already does what a conceptual class would do, that conceptual class will never come to fruition (except in the existing class).

    Every expansion has increased class options -- whether by introducing an existing class to a faction it wasn't playable before, adding a new class, or expanding available classes to existing races.

    I don't see a new class coming in right after Monks came in, especially since they're still working on Monk tuning for all 3 specs ... so I think they'll add a new race (or two), and/or possibly expand available classes to existing races again

    Even then, its unlikely that a DH class would emerge. There's no real reason for it to happen.

    I've gone over this enough that I might just start copy pasting.


    Why Demon Hunters and Warlocks are NOT THE SAME
    Demon Hunters <-> Warlocks

    Many are Night Elves<-> Can NOT be a Night Elf
    Are melee combatants <-> Are ranged casters
    Are primary melee combatants who excel at a special martial fighting art <-> Wear dresses and wave sticks around
    Dual wield warglaives and have evasive powers to tank with <-> No twice, and then also no
    Despise demons, slay them <-> Date their succubi, constantly have a demon with them, sometimes two
    Cool sleek emo look <-> Scary fiery emo look
    Ritually blind themselves <-> Wear funny hats
    Can turn into a demon, at least Illidan can <-> In lore, copied this ability because it seemed powerful

    So, one of these things- the one thing that warlocks copied from demon hunters- is a thing that they have in common. But, nothing else. Locks aren't DH's, and if Blizzard wants me to think that they are, they'll actually go and add a lot to warlocks- like, for instance, a melee spec, the ability to dual wield while that spec, etc. That's a whole lot, and you'd get there easier with rogues, who are much closer to demon hunters in game already. But close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, and we want fucking demon hunters.

    Though we may have to wait another expac, we shall see.

    I think with "Warlords of Draenor" Blademaster has good chances.

    my desire is that it isn´t demon hunter. What specs would you give it? how would it be different from hunters?

    They already have problems making classes different enough. I would be fine with an expansion without new races or classes.

    hero class starting at level 65 in a bt phased area and then at 70 they join the normal levelling? Yes pls.
    How about we let the parenting of kids to... their parents? No, seriously, World of Warcraft is a videogame. Gaming it's supposed to be a fun activity (if you have that fun through challenges, social interactions, etc is completely up to you). Not some kind of "School of Hard Knocks about the Real World".

    clearly Warlords of Draenor points to a new class.... the bard. Nothing like running a 5 man with you and 4 Draenei doing their best Mumford and Sons impression.

    This has been answered many times. Ultimately, however, a hunter is a ranger, and a demon hunter is not. People often compare the DH to one of three classes:

    The rogue: The closest fit, the rogue dual wields, is lightly armored, and is shadowy. Rogues have many abilities you would never expect out of a demon hunter, however, including blind and vanish, and likely demon hunter wouldn't be amazing as a rogue spec unless it actually gave all this up somehow.

    The warlock: Both use demonic magic, but that's literally it. Locks have tons of abilities that a demon hunter wouldn't have- fear, for instance- and is of course otherwise entirely unsuited, as warlocks are casters and can't even be night elves.

    The hunter: Both have the word "hunter" in the name, and that's it. Hunters are rangers who use nature powers, have pets, and are exclusively ranged. They have traps and other such things. These are all core hunter abilities, and demon hunters have absolutely none of these things. A ranged demon hunter spec wouldn't be out of line, but it would likely have as much in common with hunters as hunters do with mages.

    They already have problems making classes different enough. I would be fine with an expansion without new races or classes.
    I don't think this is a very good reason not to have a demon hunter.

    Demon hunter has a nice ring to it and shit, we know we're gonna take on the Legion of demons eventually so why not have a some Demon hunters help out?

    As long as they have a tank spec, Im down. NEED MORE TANKS!

    If the story is PCs traveling back in time to Draenor, for some reason, then there's nothing stopping Demon Hunters from going along with all the other PCs.

    It's all speculative, though. All there is so far is a title. Who knows? I wouldn't be surprised if Blizzard even forgot that Draenor is Outland, and not the Draenei's original homeworld, considering Metzen has retconned things simply because he forgot the original story and they need fans to remind them which characters are alive and which are dead.

    Lol, this is actually a pretty good point. Someone needs to photoshop Metzen with some cokehead strippers or something, in like, a lambo.

    On a serious note, what about they develop current races and classes before overbloating?

    I hope there's no new class. I would rather have new races.

    Yet Demo Lock are pretty close in terms of playstyle to something you could consider a Demon hunter, building up power and releasing it by turning into a demon.

    Obviously you could use something different, but then the Demon Form might just turn into a standard CD instead of something you could see as "Core Ability".

    On the other hand, having a Class evolved around turning into a Demon and a spec from another class may seem boring as well.

    They are much closer to Enhance / Retri, because they use magic to enhance their Melee attacks, but that's just nitpicking.

    You and some other people, i might add.

    Personally i don't want yet another Melee Class, both new Classes have been Melee Specs and think a DH class will be gutted right away from the start, for example, the next class will wear Mail armor, it's the only remaining type without 3 Classes, there have you first Lore bend right away, because DH's actually wear just very light armor.

    Too often, we are mistaken for druidic types. perhaps that's true for some shaman, but do not let yourself be plagued by the ignorant belief that we are always peaceful.
    Nothing about what I do is harmonious. I command the elements to my will. There is nothing offered in return. I would have it no other way.
