    April 19 Tinker Reveal

    24 days until Tinker reveal by Blizzard. They have been investing an enormous amount of time from their animation and art teams into creating unique racial animations for the class. They see this as a love letter to the most wildly popular new class request.

    Alliance:
    Gnomes: Gnomish tech (duh)
    Dark Iron Dwarves: Dark iron type tech (Think the drills and the BRD golems)
    Draenai: Alien crystal tech (you've seen the golems

    Horde:
    Goblin: Standard goblin shredder type tech
    Mag'har orc: Iron Horde tech (It looks REALLY good).
    Blood Elf: Netherstorm blood elf type tech

    Mail/intellect class.

    Three specs:
    Enforcer: Tank. Battlesuit cooldown, with each race having a customized suit. Tank mechanic is built around a shield capacitor, with a focus on building large absorb shields to differentiate from other tanks.
    Alchemist: Healer. This spec plays most similar to how MOP Mistweaver played. There's a focus on self-spreading HOTS (and self-spreading DOTS). Some really cool visuals
    Engineer: Ranged DPS. I don't want to spoil it, but you guys are going to LOVE it.

    All of these archetypes have been explored in WOW. The team has a ton of art direction to pull from and they are really excited about how this class came together.

    Edit: 23 days!

    Not opposed to this, but I'm gonna need to see a source.
    On silken ebony wings the harbinger of death arrives.

    You’re telling me mecha-gnomes wouldn’t be playable as a tinker?
    Yeah this seems legit.

    I would hate to see the mech being a cooldown.
    I'd rather if it worked like the island team mech where it was up all the time and had a separate health pool/abilities from the actual character.

    Also mechagnomes/LFD not being Tinkers is a bit weird to me especially because we see LFDs with the mechs when normal Draeneis are not.

    You would think Blood Elves would use the Anima golems.

    Really wish I could understand this fetish people have with tinkers....

    It's kind of disturbing -- like Anime or My Little Pony freaks.

    There will never be tinkers as a class. Never.

    Remember it before posting: will never be.

    There will never be WoW Classic. Never.

    Remember it before posting: will never be. Also, shouldn't you be in the Warlock forums incessantly complaining?

    Absolutely hate the idea of tinker. Yes it is in WC3 but so what. Use fresh ideas.

    We don't have a technology-based class in WoW. A Tinker class would be a fresh idea.

    Let me ask you one VERY simple question - why would anyone ever play any tank other than this mech if it has shields? As a long CD, its not so bad, but shields are EXTREMELY powerful in wow, thats a big reason disc priests have been changed so many times. This makes no sense at all, unless the shields are very minor. But that cant be the case, you said the entire spec is "built around" the shields.

    You won't find a reliable one.

    This is somehow even worse than the Light's Judgement leak. Also why would Dark Iron Dwarves be able to be tinkers, but not regular dwarves. Same goes with the Orcs. And no Mecha-gnome tinker wtf?

    Probably because WoW is, first and foremost, a high fantasy game, not a steampunk/cyberpunk game.

    I'm certainly not opposed to the idea, but it also has to fit the theme of the expansion which could be the case if its going to take place in something like the Undermine. Also needs a lot more races that can be tinker. My suggestion is:

    Human + Kul'Tiran
    Dwarf + Dark Iron Dwarf
    Gnome + Mechagnome
    Draenei + Lightforged Draenei

    Orc + Mag'har Orc
    Goblin + Vulpera
    Blood Elf + Nightborne
    Undead

    Yet it has a strong steampunk/technology component. Including multiple technology-based races who utilize technology at a high level. So yeah, it's exclusion from the class lineup is rather glaring.
