    As someone else just recently pointed out in this thread, I think the best move forward isn’t a new class, but the Allied Race version of classes. All the heavy lifting of class is done, just brand new visuals, animations, and spell names. This is where the oft mentioned Necromancer could finally be realized. Doing it the same way as the Warlock green fire isn’t appealing, and unlocking them like Allied Races doesn’t feel good either (personally unlocking AR is fine by me).

    Necromancer - Warlock
    Void Templar - Paladin (Sunwalker, Elune Knight)
    Shadow Inquisitor - Priest
    Spell-Blade - Demon Hunter
    Hunter - Shadow Hunter or Dark Ranger
    Mage - Witch(Drustvar-esque)
    - don’t know why I switched the format -
    Death Knights - Spell-Breaker sans shield or a Fel Knight

    The remaining classes I can’t easily come up with something.

    I personally wouldn’t mind if we got one spec classes. I’d like a gunslinger, but I don’t think the rogue or the Hunter really encompasses that niche class flavor, this could be more interesting and easier for Blizz to add, or I’m wrong.

    well a new class with abilities to go underground instead of flying or stealth would be nice .

    Yeah sure, let's go and post more headcanon about how Gnomes,Goblins, Tinkers and Tech as a whole is actually a super popular concept among the WoW playerbase.

    This would require far more work than just one new class, and I think this falls under 4th spec, which Ion has stated isn't happening.

    Though the core class is very different, I think the Priest could teanslate better, ability-wise. You have a bunch of heals and support, and Shadow has mind control and fear effects on top of mana leeching and other support buffs.

    Whatever the class is it'll most likely:

    1: Be a mail armor class to fill the armor type gap.

    2: Have at least one ranged DPS spec, again to fill the role gap.

    3: Possibly also have a healing and/or tank spec since hybrids are the most popular classes.


    With all that in mind plus the fact that there are actual Tinkers in existence in BfA, I would think that it's the next class.

    Tinker would wear mail armor and have a ranged DPS that uses guns (and most likely bows/crossbows too, for convenience sake). They'll most likely have a tank spec which has a mech as their tanking mechanic. They'll for sure have at least one ranged DPS spec like I mentioned, that uses guns/bows/xbows.


    Their third spec is up for debate. It could be a melee spec since they are still the most popular play style in the game and Blizz would want to pull in the melee players to the class as well. It could be a second ranged DPS spec, since again, they are at a deficit right now. It could be a healing spec in which they heal sort of like Ana from OW with "biotic" shots and grenades. Or they could just have 2 specs like DHs (probably not as likely).

    If I had to guess, it would be 1 tank spec, 1 ranged DPS spec and 1 healing spec.

    It better not be another Melee DPS class. I've been waiting for a new ranged DPS class since... they started adding new classes. -_-

    The top 3 choices in the poll are all ranged, so it would appear that the majority of posters agree with you.

    Oh no, did I offend you by making fun of your crush.

    No plz!
    WoW does not need yet another broken class.
    It makes no sense to add another spec when more than half of the current ones are broken.
    I prefer that they fix and / or renew all the progression and combat system mechanics rather than having a new class with a system that is too obsolete and that has a lot of design errors.

If dragons become a thing my guess would be as a playable race, so maybe they are setting that up? Would be really nice
    The more I think about it the more likely it will be a Dragon Related class and next expansion is probably the Emerald Dream. The dragons can take the form of any race they so choose so I doubt they will get a special race.

    It's not fit much there, same way as corsair/pirate stuff that they trying to push in combat branch (or new melee s.hunter ). Just ridiculous (it breaks class mechanics, as actually do any orientation to role/specs instead of integral design of each. particular. class. specifically). We discussed it already more than once.
