    2h spec which uses staves and polearms, int as main stat and throws bolts of chaos and fel energy would be cool. Maybe some of those awesome fel spikes we see in fel areas.

    outside of metamorphosis, demon hunters were always melee based.

    edit: another thing I remember is literally every hero in wc3 could be converted to range via items anyways, but that was never hero specific.
    The cooldown was up like 1/3 of the time from my experience and memory. So like... it is enough to justify a spec.

    Frankly I'd be "happy" if they just brought back MoP/WoD demo with reskinned spells and with zero extra thought and work into how it could work with the inherent mobility and speed of gameplay of the class.

    Like if they had literally taken the easy way of adding an RDPS spec it would have felt like a copout but much less of a slap in the face as "what other spec would fit? Hurr durr healer wouldnt make sense lulz" like they did at the announcement.

    A spec that uses polearms, like Allari does. Probably a mix of melee and long range abilities that forces you to jump forward and backwards.

    Healing makes sense.

    i'd prefere a range dd spec, to deal better with AV zergs.

    Maybe simply increase eyebeam to 40m and put in some throw glaives talents/abilities, some more range cc and no selfheal.

    who wants to be a healer.......you are the first target always, must feel like a target dummy, outside of arenas, when there are no pillars and many more dds trying to tickle you.

    No. It was a dumb unnecessary idea before. It's worse now. And anyone who keep suggesting it should have their entire battle.net account deleted for not stopping with this dumb idea.

    There won't be '12 classes instead of 36' as we're not getting the original Talents back. Every spec being the same is part of the problem.

    I don't think an healing spec fits the concept. Demon hunters are all about sacrifice, not redemption, also fel is the last magic that could be associated with healing, it would make more sense for the arcane, death or even the void to give a healing spec than fel (imagine death Knight healers lol).

    While a healing spec makes no sense, a ranged spec on the other hand makes complete sense. Most demon hunters were mages before turning to the fel, illidan was a mage, and while they can no longer use the arcane, they can use something even stronger, so why should they not? Because it would be destruction warlock? Not even remotely close, warlock is a stationary spec, a demon hunter would be a fast pacing spec, filled with mobility stuff, they could even have less range than other casters, fighting between the ranged and the meele.

    Another idea, or perhaps a 4th spec would be sort of a ranged fel hunter, using big bows and crossbows, maybe the arrows could be coated with their fel blood, and it would be a dot oriented spec.

    I could say that about asking for no class.

    You could and that's a valid opinion. You could also say the exact same about adding another class spec in a game that's already bloated with them especially when people like yourselfs seem to care more about MOAR rather than should and is it good.

    What I said is an objective fact. Shut the god damn fuck up about a 3rd demon hunter spec. Healing demon hunters are stupid and make no sense in the lore and while an argument maybe could be made for a ranged DH, even though 99% of their established cannon even before legion had them as agile melee fighters, we've basically got that covered with warlock which has 3 fleshed out ranged specs. It's a stupid idea for stupid people who just don't want to play a warlock over a DH.

    Fel can heal in lore so it makes sense. See Healthstones of Gul'dan bringing death knights to life.

    I agree that ranged demon hunter is either warlock or hunter. It is not worth it.

    a support spec will be good, damaging abilities to stack some souls shards and send them to allies / or stacking them for create absorb for tanks

    we can add a banishment cd as defensiv cd or to ban a opponent .

    a life link cd to spread damage between a group

    Steal some life amount from teammate player 1 to sent it to teammate player 2

    this is just exemples how can we have a 3rd spec, a damaging ranged 3rd spec will be bashed so much from actual ranged classes

    There's absolutely no reason lore or gameplay wise for DHs to have a third spec, they barely have 2 interesting specs as it is
