    If blizz wanted to, they could have more than just goblin and gnome tinkers. Dwarves on the Alliance side could be tinkers too, since they have all of those siege weapons and such, it wouldn't too much of a leap. Then for the horde, they could either go with blood elves or undead. Blood elves have been really big on those arcane and blood constructs since ToT, and we have the history of the tempest keep. Undead have a bit less of a magitech vibe with their stuff, but all the same could be used for tinker stuff.

    The way I see it, each tinker has to have a mechasuit of some sort like mekkatorque in which case goblins could have a suped up shredder based design, dwarves could have one based on there ram aesthetic, blood elves could get one based on either the blood golems or arcane sentinels they have, or undead could get a harvest golem based design. Either way, I think that if blizz is going to make tinker a class then they have to expand it beyond goblins and gnomes because unlike the elves for demon hunter, there are a lot of people who will take a pass on the class specifically because they don't want to be a goblin or gnome.

Finally, there's the goblin alchemist from the RTS. He or she would use potions, magic, and technology to heal and/or support their allies.

    There is a difference between being able to slap on four ideas for specs in a forum post and blizzard actually making four specs in game. This is also assuming either way that the suit, if they made one, would be given two specs themed around it for tank and dps.

    They 'could' have made four monk specs, one themed after each celestial. They did not. THey 'could' have made a third demon hunter spec. They did not. 'Could happen' and 'likely to happen' are not the same thing. Let alone ASSERTING it would have four specs. They may not make thinker at all and if it they do make it it may not be exactly what you envision.

    Guess we'll find out soon enough if this is true or not.
    The original leak said that the Tinker class that Blizzard is developing ARE using mech suits. The leak you're quoting is an update from that same leaker. So if that leak is true, and Blizzard is actually developing the class, then it will be Goblins and Gnomes piloting mechs.

    That development would make since given the rise of Gnomes and Goblins piloting mech during the Legion invasion.

    This game can't realistically support more classes until they hire real class designers and make complete overhaul of most specs.
    Blizzard cant figure out what to do with existing ones and you want them to add more, what a pathetic crowd.

    Tinkers fit because they're all over the game world. Don't really see how anyone could say that they don't fit. They fill a niche and are pretty unique class-wise.

    if the time line doesn't add up for the pc learning it why should it matter if it doesn't line up for them forgetting it? there is no basis that they need to explain it being gone as there was no lore basis of them learning it as it learned it after cata yet the ability was in the game in wrath.
    The council was reunited in MoP not to show players how to use Kanrethad's demonic form, but to explore new sources of power to add.
    The said Metamorphosis was learned thanks to the Illidan defeat, as well they learned more about Affliction during the Northrend campaign and about Destruction during the encounter with Ragnaros in cata.

    And the lack of a fourth spec. for monks doesn't make sense (they erred on the side of caution), and as for the demon hunter, more than two specs. would never make sense (the demon hunter appears to fit all aspects of the lore). Is it an assumption that the tinker will have four specializations? Sure. Does it fit the lore for them to have four specializations? Yes. I'm going off of the lore, but if you disagree on my assertion then, by all means, do so. In the end, it doesn't matter; we can agree to disagree. Have a nice day!

    I really have never seen a single good argument against Tinkers as a class.

    There is no good reason against the concept. Most of the hate here comes from people who simply dislike the class.
