No new classes.

General Discussion
How about new specs?

Warrior - Gladiator (sword and shield DPS)

Hunter - Ranger (SV would go back to ranged, this would be melee DW)

Shaman - Earthguard (tank)

Rogue - Sniper (bow/gun)

Mage - Blood
Or
Warlock - Blood

Paladin- A sword and board Ret variation would be cool.

Dk - I realllly want Blood DPS back

Thats all ive got. Any more ideas?
I kind of want a mage spec that wears mail and is 50/50 melee and spells, but I fear that it would be too close to Enhancement Shaman with a dash of Elemental or the fabled Shockadin spec from days of yore.

"Ranger" probably isn't a very good name for a melee hunter.
I would rather just have a new ranged class to be honest.
battlemage - a mage who can wear armor while combining 2 handed meele attacks with magic
/sign for prot dps spec. Preferably with a 2h/shield

I miss that spec so much. I really enjoyed it.

Why dont we just give every class every thing and not have classes.
This is exactly why the game sucks now.
This ^
there hasnt been a new ranged class since launch. I think its time.

Yeah, how about no new specs since Blizzard can’t balance what they already have.
I would like a new class to be honest. Maybe a runecaster class.
I don't think we're going to see any new classes or specs in BfA, they're doing the whole allied race thing instead.

I think it was a mistake to introce new subraces like they did w/o a class to go with it.

Or they should have just been cosmetic.

As it stands - I have 0 desire to re-level an existing class just for a new "skin". Especially given they are prolonging the leveling process.
if mage ever got a new spec, it better be a healer based off of chronomancy
a ranged or healer-type spec for DH, since they only have 2 specs atm.
I made this post some time ago: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/16647414963#post-1

Rogue: Demon-hunter; Kinda like the Diablo3 Demon hunter. A poison-crossbow wielding stealth-range enthusiast. Or a Saboteur that uses bombs... maybe even leave a bomb in a pick-pocketed target Hehe.. boom.

Monk: Zen-master: Another dps spec that relies more so on ranged spell casting.

Hunter: Artillery; Gives them massive range and strong bombardment spells, but at the cost of movement and mobility.

Shaman: Spirit spawner: A pet class for shamans.... As an off-shot idea, making them tanky again would be weird, but I'd love the unique pet-spawning-tanking class.

Priest: Illusionist; Not so much a healer, or a dps... this is a straight up support to make things die quicker spec. Lots of CC and mimicry.


Of course the rogue one wouldn't be a demon hunter at this point, but the idea is still the same.
We need spellbreakers as a spec for mage, a mail & shield mid range dps or tank spec for mage.
Gladiator sounds awesome.
