Tries to imagine a class that stands around in a raid playing a guitar. Or possibly a flute. Or even a drum kit… No, it’s not working for me, sorry.
Rather than adding classes to the already-bloated class system, why not just add specs? How about giving every class (except those with a a 4th spec already) an extra one? Since it’s Saturday here and I’m feeling creative, here are my suggestions for an extra spec to all 3-spec classes.
Mage : Battle Mage. Able to wear plate similar to that worn by Paladins (so it has Intellect and other useful attributes). Rather than Arcane, Frost or Fire, the spec is Impact. It’s spells are literally smashing effects.
Priest: Bard. Heals through the power of music. Possibly hymns, or songs from Aladdin…
Warrior: Gladiator. There ya go.
Monk: I got nothing. still thinking
Warlock: Necromancer, a healing spec based on things like draining life, sucking life from bodies, etc.
Death Knight: Ummm…something ranged…
Hunter: Lancer. Able to mount certain types of their pets and attack using lances while mounted, and those pets get attack abilities at the same time. Jealousy explodes across other classes at this amazing ability
Paladin: Spiritwalker. I dunno what they do but its a neat name. Help me out?
Demon Hunter: Felhound. Able to transform into a Felhound that draws on the Fel to heal party members in various troubling ways.
Rogue: Removed from the game. Just kidding. Ranger. I suspect those who know rogues would have a better idea where to take this one.
Shaman: Aether. A ranged spec for shamans, whose power and weaponry is the 4th element, the Air.
There ya go. “A whole new World of Speccraft”
