A New Class Before Launch?

One of the expansions from what i heard will be about the paladin race. Blizzard said they would bring the necro back on one the of expansions. My best guess would be on the expansion they would bring the necro back and a templar replacing the paladin.

Technically, if the Archivist became playable, he wouldn't be a sixth "secret" class, since he was "revealed" a long time ago. That's really the only loop hole in Kaivax's statement.

I am intrigued by that mysterious empty spot, but I think it's almost certain that there will be no sixth class.

However, a playable Archivist would really give those looking for a challenge a fun time... imagine playing hardcore mode on inferno when one of your attacks is a suicide move...

I think it might just be the "last chance" to get the missing sigils from the gathering of heroes promotion? They did mention this before..

Well, whatever it is we'll probably know at 5/08, since there's a gap between the 5th locked one and the game release, I'm assuming by then we'll know...

From the FAQ: Throughout the promotion, each class section of the website will progressively unlock every week and stay unlocked. In-game class sigils, on the other hand, have limited availability and do not stay unlocked. The week that a class unlocks, only that class’s sigil will become available via Mark of Valor, until the next class section unlocks and its respective sigil takes its place. If you missed a week, don't worry, there will be another chance to earn your favorite class sigil later in the promotion, but please note that sigils are only available for a limited time. May 18 will be the last day that you can earn an in-game sigil.

Also, when you look at the class specific pages, there are still only 5 "circles" for the classes: http://reveal.diablo3.com/en_US/class_gathering/demon_hunter

oh blizz how you love to drive us bonkers. Although it is quite interesting guess we will have to wait to find out. If it was a new class that would be very very exciting although quite doubtful

There will be five heroes in the game for you to play, come May 15. Those will be the five hero classes that you've seen, and played, and that we've been developing for years. There will not be a sixth, secret class sprung on you in the next month.

I promise.


Five hero classes. Maybe a sixth, not-so-heroic class will be revealed? Or a new follower? Or a new craftsman/woman?

Not plausible for a 6th, you think that could be kept a secret and not noticed in the data dumpster diving already done?


I haven't read all the comments here, but I don't think it's plausable because that character wouldn't be beta tested. Sure a surprise like that would be awsome but not worth the cost of being untested and refined.

Edit: LOL, well I just got to this, so it's confirmed:

"There will be five heroes in the game for you to play, come May 15. Those will be the five hero classes that you've seen, and played, and that we've been developing for years. There will not be a sixth, secret class sprung on you in the next month.

Kinda scary how you guys could talk yourself into believing something you wanted to believe even though it defied common sense.

I agree with everyone that thinks its just a spot to earn any sigils that were missed. It seems very logical that the time from 5/1 - 5/15 we will have time to catch up.

Maybe they just miscounted.

I would very much like this opportunity! Sadly, I missed the Demon Hunter Sigil (I just found the website two days ago), and it's so pretty and sparkly and I WANT. D:

Not sure if a new class would be THAT great, as everyone will be trying it out of excitement of exclusive content, ending up in a one played class release... Doesn't sound too too fun from here..
