    I ran Skyrim once as a battle mage. It was enjoyable. I'd like to see something like it in WoW.

    I am missing a proper spellbreaker style, or some cleric/ crusader thing , basicly a paladin with a 1h/ shield dmg spec.
    or an actual inquisitor priest holy dmg spec, maybe even a couple melee type spells. basicly a proper scarlet crusade type of thing, to burn all the heretics. it would be holy and fire spells . or just spray holy water everwhere .

    Yea, id fucking love that, you could for a bit get the look with old defensive stance and its crappy low res shield.

    A spear and shield typed class would be ausome, maybe give it a ranged spec built on javlins. Could also fill the missing mail wearing slot.

    For me, I think I'd like a melee spec with a DH or Monk like tool kit and playstyle - high mobility, very fast-paced - light armor (leather/mail), but combines that with the Fury war or Frost DK ability to DW or 2H (uses the weapon unlike monk), and the aesthetic/theme of something like an shaman or balance druid - wind, lightning, etc.

    This started because I was doing the monk's Maw run in windwalker and thought how could it would be if "storm, earth, and fire" were more literal.

    Anyone else ever imagined an "ideal" spec that doesn't exist or even have a class that matches it?
    Sounds a lot like enh shaman.

    Hunter spec or talent that lets you dual wield ranged weapons. Crossbows and Guns make obvious sense, but bows less so. But it's a fantasy game, I'm sure they can make a work-around lore reason.

    Ranged spec for DK. There was a point in time I thought Unholy was almost set up for it, but not quite. Something like a necromancer would be cool too.

    That's a Blademaster.

    That's what Survival should have been.

    A warlock tank spec that plays like a proper spellcaster, like the old Dark Apotheosis glyph fleshed out as a proper class. There's really nothing stopping them from doing this in an era where dodge and parry are based on offensive stat ratings and defense doesn't exist.

    There's always kind of been this missing element in the class that feels like a missed opportunity. A lot of their existing abilities would even fit perfectly in a tank setup, and possibly having a dot-based mage tank would be the most unique thing in WoW.
    If you reply to me with a full essay I'm probably not going to bother reading it, sorry.

    4th Shaman spec: Earth Warden (tank)

    Abilities:
    Shield of the Maelstrom: (passive) Blocked attacks reduce the cast time of spells by 20% per stack
    Rockbiter Shield: Imbues shield with Earthen power, increasing armor, and increasing chance to block
    Earth Shield: Same as standard Earth shield, just with more charges, and increases armor.
    Tremor: Stomp the ground causing the ground to shake, damaging and slowing enemies within 8 yards

    Void Knight shadow paladin spec.

    A 1 sec GCD instant cast ranged spec.
    If what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Then I should be a god by now.

    Ranged subtlety Rogue. (with a bow of course).

  14. #34
    Hmm. Honestly I would love something similar to red mage from a certain other mmo. A class that has to utilize both melee and ranged could be a lot of fun.

    *WITH NO PET (Because we already have Beast Mastery Hunter)


    Also, I would like to see a Battlemage / Warmage: 2H Rune sword, rune system similar to DKs but different, Blink Strike!

    Some sort of blood magic-based healer, particularly one that drains/leaches health from enemies and then funnels it back to raid members, but it would be another dps/healer hybrid class that heals based off of damage (though in a different way), so it might clash mechanically too much with Discipline.

    Hunter would actually be a perfect class to me if they had kept the 1 sec gcd.

    They talked about a Windwalker hero class back in the day. Similar to Yunero from Warcraft 3, its been my dream class/spec ever sicne. And no, monks are not real windwalkers.

    I want leather, 2 handers, stealth, illusions, etc. That would be amazing.

    WotlK ele with all the glyphs baked in, non nerfed healing, etc. It was perfect.
