I've been seeing threads for some time about a 4th spec, and I threw my $0.02 in a different thread, which got me thinking more on the topic.
My idea in a nutshell was to have a 4th spec, maybe even one that evolved based on your base spec.
Example was a Warlock becoming a Demon Hunter, foregoing staff or 1hand/offhand for a ranged weapon, then imbuing the projectiles with their shadow flame magic. Warrior becoming a real Gladiator, wielding a Polearm in one hand, shield in the other, going the full 9 yards into DPS instead of the current glad stance of modding a couple abilities. Resto Sham becoming Earth Warden, getting preventative magics, similar to Disc Priest but still retaining their trademarks (chain heal, shields, etc).
So, with that said, my question to you, good people of MMO-C, is what 4th spec would you like to see for the existing classes, and how would you see it work?
Should it be completely standalone with its own unique abilities and play style? (similar to the Demon Hunter example above)
Should it be a 'Hero' spec that just adds/alters existing ones to add some variation? (similar to the warrior/shaman example above)
Should it not happen at all because it's a stupid idea from my stupid brain? (It's ok, I won't be mad)
Not gonna make a poll because I would like to hear how people would like to see it implemented, if at all, which (hopefully) will be a lot more informative than a handful of poll options.
