    Demon hunter class idea

    I decided to write my own concept idea of Demon hunter class.

    Here is how I see Demon hunter class, as a furious melee fighter who enchances himself with demonic energies using fel//fire/shadow magic with 2 dps and 1 tanking specialization. Demon hunter does not have any passive tanking bonus but instead focuses on major damage absorption during combat. Damage dealing specs have unique resources. Numbers are only to give general idea of the abilities.

    Images are from wowdb and wowwiki.
