Unlike DH, Tinker's never gonna make it into wow.
Voted Ranger and Spellbreaker because I want to see them as one class.
Maybe the class after the DH will be called the Dark Warrior just so that another established WoW class can fill substandard to a hero class.
We need to balance the classes that use mail armor IMO. Something that could use it such as a spellbreaker? tinkerer? most of the options above are variations of classes we already have... Templar = Paladin etc... Poll needs less choices or more variety.
Bard is probably the last of the great iconic RPG classes not to be represented, so that is something. Demon Hunter has the best lore hook overall, overlap or no overlap. A lot of the other classes that get proposed are just... way too esoteric, IMO. Too high concept.
I may be in the minority, but in absence of them building a buff/support role to break up the trinity, I would like to see them add a fifth pure DPS class. We have five hybrid classes that tank, five hybrid classes that heal, inclusive of three that can do both. There are four put damage classes; make a fifth. Maybe two ranged and a melee spec. Grab bag -- something that can ranged cast, ranged physical, melee cast or physical, whatever is your fancy. That could be shoehorned into whatever lore template you like, or armor class.
On Topic: The thread is based on personal preference, not actual speculation of future expansions.
I chose Tinker, to me others do seem like variations of other classes (looking at you dark ranger/blademaster/archmage) while some are specialized classes (witch doctor are shaman/priests), and i'm just not interested in the Demon Hunter, the technology in WoW is evolving more each expansion, let our characters embrace it.
The only thing that could make me remotely care about tinker is if it meant having Sabdancer back (archaic DPS monster from "Rift").
I will agree with you on one thing though... a vast majority of these options are just minor variations of classes that already exist. The only ones that would be able to stand on their own are Demon Hunter, Tinker, Bard (will never happen, unfortunately), maybe Necromancer, and depending on what it entails, the Dragonsworn.
You can mark Necromancer off the list. Death Knights cover their design space completely.I will agree with you on one thing though... a vast majority of these options are just minor variations of classes that already exist.

I want a runemaster class, but that's not on the poll. There's not even an other section on the poll.
Do you guys really think there will be another race/class in the expansion after WoD? This thread got me to thinking about my decision to use my free lvl 90 on a monk. I am not that fond of playing the monk class, and was thinking about just saving the free lvl 90 until the next xpac comes out.
