I believe we will get a class with auras. Aura is a deep tradition in blizz since Diablo 2 (both wc3 ad wow have auras, and in wc3 auras played a big part of the game).
But it won't be like D2, a tree filled with 10 diferent kinds of auras. They will put like 1~3 auras in each tree of this class.
The new class will be a spear/lance/pike/halberd wielding melee fighter...
A class somewhat like the paladin, but not a paragon of chivalry.
A spell user. A cult warrior.... though MOSTLY a fighter class with kickass auras like "Thorns" and skills like "Impale".
Will not be using a shield.
Spear classes are rarely used in games. So something like a pure polearm class would be pretty original.
-Inquisitor... Draws upon the might of his gods to banish his enemies. Because of the nature of his foes and the devotion with which he arms himself, he has become tainted by fanaticism and more often than not- allows himself to succumb to his darker emotions...
Well, the name I don't really like is Inquisitor. Couldn't think of anything better at the moment. Avenger lol? I'm open to suggestions...
But it fits the anti-demon cult warrior thing I imagined.

What about a scythe? xD
To be honest, I have no idea what the hell a scythe was doing in D2 in the first place LOL.
But, the character wouldn't just use piercing attacks (it's just that I couldn't find any pics with a slashing pole weapon). He could slash too depending on whether he's wielding a bardiche, a halberd, a naginata etc. Different type of weapons depending on the culture/act.

lol it can still easily be a ranger since who said you cant shoot arrows at melee distance xD

The Barbarian is from Arreat, a very cold snowy mountain top, but they are much tougher than normal humans, so they don't need warmth.

Where are Barbarians originally from? Sumeria, or more specifically Mesopotamia, AKA Europe. Think the Alps and the Pyrenees
I don't see a big, ugly, bloody scythe accompanying a holy warrior against the demonics. It doesn't look right. I see a holy scepter in his/her hand, or a fine sword with inscriptions of the Zakarum on it, or a pristine mace. Scythes are really just farm tools, anyway. It doesn't make sense to me.
