Well...Clearly its not going to happen, but I was really really really hoping, we would see a new pet. I guess having a pet isnt really part of being a lock ...or something...I comment blizz on there attempts to "balance" classes. But the bottom line is some classes will and should be better at some things than other classes. Theres supposed to be different classes with weaknesses n strengths. Where are we going with this? will we log in and instead of a character class selection , it will just say"make a character?"
Why implement a new pet when the current ones are weak?
What makes you think certain classes will have or won't have any weaknesses?
What's the point in a certain spec, when another spec outclasses it and makes it undesireable?
classes still have certain strengths and weaknesses..
rogues will still have an edge over warlocks
warlocks will still have an edge over mages
mages will still have an edge over warrior
warriors will still have an edge over rogues
rogues will still have an edge over priests
priests will still have an edge over paladins
paladins will (probably) have an edge over death knights
death knights will (probably) have an edge over druids(HoT removal)
druids will probably have an edge over melee classes
melee classes will still have a slight edge over hunters
hunters will still have have an edge over casters
that's only in 1on1
classes will be balanced to deal with other class' weakness
because in this game, team PvP is more important that 1on1 PvP
still, in 1on1 all these rock/paper/scissors situations will be toned down as well
so that a mage can still defeat a warlock or a warlock can beat a rogue, without falling prey to them without being able to properly defend themselves
