    And nothing prevents Blizzard from taking that concept and making it fit into a MMORPG game since the hammer tank concept provides a potentially unique gameplay experience, and allows Tinkers to stand out from existing classes. Two things Blizzard considers very important in class design.
    'Unique gameplay experience' is your opinion. For me, it doesn't fit WoW.

    Not yet.
    And he may never, ever have it, so saying 'not yet' is irrelevant.

    Those are alternate skins, not the base skins. Also Gazlowe is a Tinker throughout HotS. Bad comparison is bad.
    It's not 'bad comparison'. If you're using HotS as canon sources, so all of it is canon. You don't get to cherry-pick what is or what isn't.

    Nah, it could still turn into a mech. If Goblins can make a town out of a box, they can make backpack turn its user into a mech.

    Well, we're all allowed to have opinions.

    True. I suppose we'll just have to wait and see.

    Its a bad comparison because those skins are "spoofs" on the main concept. Gazlowe being a Tinker isn't a spoof. It is a main concept.

    Oh and yeah, I'm not using HotS as cannon. Sorry.

    With that same reason we can argue that HotS Gazlowe is a 'spoof' of the original concept, WoW's Gazlowe.

    Then stop using HotS Gazlowe as a reason Tinkers as a class are canon.

    So are Arthas, Illidan, Malfurion, and Uther spoofs of their WoW versions as well?

    I never did. I used HotS Gazlowe as an example to show more abilities associated with a possible Tinker class.

    Yups.

    EDIT: I mean, look at Illidan? No wings, no horns, no hooves. Look at Uther: alive! As for characters from other games, look at Tyrael: still an angel.

    And yet you used the HotS Tinker link as proof whenever said Tinkers didn't exist in WoW.

    Another possible way for Tinkers to be implemented;

    I voted 0%. The game doesn't need anymore classes, and the game already has Engineering.

    You're also forgetting that we're missing a tri-role hybrid;


    Full DPS: Warlock, Mage, Rogue, Hunter
    2 role hybrid: Shaman, Priest, Warrior, DK
    3 role hybrid: Monk, Druid, Paladin

    One more spot open in the 3 role hybrid slot.

    I don't think Demon Hunters are known for healing.....

    I really was leaning towards Dark Ranger, but them having another another 3 role class does make more sense. So I will say Warden, mail agility/mail intellect user, Tanking, Healing and Ranged melee DPS (bows, crossbows and guns). This would fill the rest of the itemization gaps in the game.

    Not sure healing works well with Warden's archetype. Also Rogues take a lot of their design space. Wardens without fan of knives and blink seems somewhat dull.
