There is a huge differences between the Demonology Warlock and the Demon Hunter.First you still have pets and ranged abilities in addition to your deamon form.Second, well to be honest they gave Demonology the Deamon Form, because for long, Demonology was a subpar spec, and since they wanted people to not feel bad about it, they gave the Metamorphosis mecanic, also so that people would lay off they're backs with the "Demon hunter class" whinning for all this years.Now well, there you have it...WHile Warlock is all about placement, since you are not fit to go into the fray, even in Demon form, DH is all about mobility and its a CC class.So i think you will still have lots of fun with your Warlock, i know i will, even if i will massively enjoy my DH.
it specifies they will use cloth and leather =)
Sorry if it's in the write up but what is the demon hunters main stat?Agility?
So now 4 classes rolling on agi leather 😁
Lvl 1 demon hunters would be a joke, but it would bring life back to Silvermoon.
I bet the see through walls and double jump gets axed before this xpac comes out. The double jump introduces too many exploits and they'll pull the ability before they tweak every bit of geometry in the world, battlegrounds, raids, etc. The see through walls stuff sounds neat but really how useful is it outside of battlegrounds? And PvP whiners will come out in droves against this.
I will play the everliving @#$% out of this class. Who won't?
argh! my dream of becoming a demon hunter gnome is gone!
I think It's obvious why the new class will be tied to Elves alone. But I agree that other characters should get options to customize their characters further. Scars like Varian Wrynn's characaristic nose-scar, and so on..
I'm worried about their armor/weapon skills. There will be far too many classes rolling on agi leather, and I honestly don't think mail would be too unfitting. (Plus it'd potentially bring hunters sweet new transmog options)From what I've seen so far, this class does look like a whole bunch of fun with all that mobility. I actually think having only 2 specs is a good thing, as that's theoretically 1/3 less time on balancing than any other class would require. Then again, I can't really come up with an idea for a third spec that'd hold any water. I feel like a ranged dps spec would be too close to warlock and it wouldn't fit the class all that well. A healing demon hunter is just absurd, given the nature of the class. Though, I don't think a slightly differing second melee dps spec would be too bad. Hell, rogues have 3 melee dps specs that still manage to have somewhat unique playstyles.Once again I think the art team has outdone themselves. The models and other visuals look absolutely stunning.
I feel good and bad having another leather class. More competition for any armor pieces I want, but the leather will now come in 4 unique looks. Tier sets will always have lookalikes. What possible DH looks can I get for my rogue?
To be fair, for the longest time Druids were exclusive to Taurens and Night Elves too. Sometimes we have to do funny things for the LOOOOORE!!!!!!!!!
