So lets look at what we have got. The barb, simple... nothing changed from d2, character wise. Wizard, is just a revamp of the sorceress. THen there is Witch Doctor, i consider him a Necro with more badass abilities.
Now we have Monk, and if you look at the concept art, and the idea behind him, he is really a mix between assasin and paladin. He holy, and sneaky, fast and also uses claws of somesort.
Now logically, the only two classes left from d2 are Druid and Amazon. So i belive that the next class for D3 will be a mix between thoose two. Im thining a ranger with elemental abilities, and summonig powers, but also a darker character. Kind of like a Theif, you know with the hoods and the cloaks.
I cant really think of a great name for this char....
What you think?
This is what im hoping the new class will be. Can Blizzard make a character like this without making him too fictional or ridiculous? I don't squat about Diablo lore. I would pretty much rather dip my head in a port-o-potty than read the sin wars.
I agree in that the next class won't be just a ranger. It is either going to be balanced or something totally different. If am strongly hoping for a druid class. I know that Blizzard's favorite character is the Witch Doctor, so I think they will lean towards a class that allows the same sort of creativity. An all range class gives the character a limited amount of creativity, as we saw in Diablo 2 ( Frost arrow, etc).
Hopefully it will be some sort of hybrid character who is capable of firing a bow, but has other elements as well. If they do make an all ranged class, he better be a lot more exciting than the previous Amazon and Rogue.
