I think it is safe to say that the next class that Blizzard will unveil for Diablo 3 will be a non-magic, ranged or melee character (maybe archer of sorts). First it was the barbarian, then it was two magic-oriented classes back to back. They probably don't want to show another magical character, or another hack 'n slash like the barbarian. So, by my logic, the next one should probably be physical, but different than barb. That being said, what do you think it will be? They have been trying to be more original in their new heroes, so maybe just a pure ranger won't cut it. Maybe a spearman? However, that gets really close to being an amazon, and they specifically announced that only the barbarian would be returning. However, the wizard is very close to the Sorceress. Maybe a pikeman once part of a phalanx? Yum Yum, can someone say 12 foot spear to stab in your face? I can!
Support = anything that don't resolve the problem by itself, but increase the potential of others resolve it.
Any kind of debuff, tank and crowd control are also support, because you can't kill anything just by debuffing, tanking of ccing it, but those kind of skills really increase the potential of dps to do so.
So, all the class in D3 have a small support in it. Barbarian can decrease enemies damage, increase allies defence, tank stuff. Wizard can paralyse and slow the enemies, impending the enemy of reach the party. Witch Doctor can summon pets and wall of zumbies to block enemies and cc then with terrify.
So a game with no support is a game that party members don't offer anything to each other wich ruin the teamplay. So what D3 will not have is a pure support class (a class that only heal, only buff, only debuff, only cc, only tank), but i'm sure every class will have some kind of support, so the coop will be nice, just like D2.
:OThe Angelic avenger class. Ranged attacks augmented with magic. Character comes from heaven. Think about this. AND THE HEAVENS SHALL TREMBLE. yes the heavens will tremble so whos to say that they cant have their own representative?????????????????????????????????????????? Its not just earth on the mortal side this time. Everyone has something to lose. THis is TOTALLY different and yet it is not much different from the amazon. It just sounds like a crap load more fun.
Yes, a name with two words. But now we have the "witch doctor."
Im Temporalsky and I aprove this message.
Seriously, the ranged class must be alot more creativy then D2's zon.
And i don't know how, in a gameplay point of view, a Bow, a Crossbow and a Throwing Weapon is different enough to a class not be limited. Really, imo, a simple hit and run class will not work this time =/
ye,something like that,but with lots of changes,not using sticks,
some very fast wep, dagger or some else trowing knifes ... i would like that...but this all stinks on a some kind of hunter..i can say it form the picture the guy posted... i think if they put that tipe of char it will be suck!
the next class might be like a barb but more distance. very physical but all throwing weapons. it would make a really good character. another really nice one to see would be a vampire or something of the sorts with lots of life leech attacks and curses (not a necro or anything like it). They have to do another shifter class as well. but bear and wolf are done and birds and stuff are horrible so it would need to be something else
for a shifter i was thinking for along the lines of like (not actually this cause it wouldnt fit in the story) but like human to dragon or something like that.. i could see a vamp class after all vlad the impaler (dracula) was a human he didnt shift.
