    Old news, lol. Not really but yea really.

    If you go back and look at the leaks from a few years back this was on the timeline schedule after WoD, I was fully expecting another legion xpac.

    Demon hunters lookreally cool though and OP! Double jump and Wings to glide wtf

    So this xpac has 9 dungeons and 2 raids with Guldan being the final boss? Seems kinda light on content but at least there are some new features such as weapon talent trees sound cool.

    Are they making Guild garrisons?

    They seem quite far along compared to other expac announcements, good they actually also showed a lot of stuff with the announcement.

    Looks awesome to be honest, funny to see them steal ideas from XIV though xD (artifact weapons) but it's a good approach and hopefully the process takes long, gives us something awesome to do. Very happy with this announcement.

    let's hope they don't take anything out along the way. I wonder if the boost to 100 works on Demon Hunters? I kinda hope not.. but not too fussed, especially if the tutorial area is really well designed.

    Beta this year, gives me hopeful release early Q1

    Class Hall concept is interesting. Biggest party is probably in the druid hall.



    Demon Hunter class page: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/game/class/demon-hunter (elves only)

    Night and Blood elves only. You start in the past, being sent out by Illidan. Sounds awesome.

    Don't think so, the class halls seem to be the direction they're going. Instead of followers you will have heroes that have more meaning.....

    So what more will they have for us at Blizzcon?

    Keen on some Demon Hunter although their excuse for only having two specs was a cop-out lol, should've just admitted they ran out of ideas

    Color me excited Fully expecting 18765182631824124 demon hunters all questing through the same areas @ release...

    Gul'dan won't be the final boss. It HAS to be Sargeras. This is rumored to be the final WoW expansion?

    Why does that require an excuse? What was their reasoning?

    wut. no. If anything their plan is to pump out expansions more regularly.

    It requires an excuse because every other class has at least 3 specs and they've managed to make other classes work like that - their excuse was "Two DPS or Tank specs would water down the identity of the class."

    they could have added a stealth spec maybe? or a pvp oriented spec and left havoc for PVE

    Not sure where you would have heard that rumour. They've come out and said they've got 2 or 3 more expansions, including Legion, planned at the minimum. They're probably already working on the one after Legion, and throwing around ideas for the one after that.

    Itching to go home and watch the entire panel, only had time this morning to watch the reveal video

    edit: just read the OP further... UNRIVALED MOBILITY: Demon Hunters can double jump, vault in and out of combat, and even unfold their monstrous wings to perform gliding descents and surprise enemies from above.

    brb rerolling

    Probably just an aimed disengage that activates when you jump with a short delay and in-built goblin glider spell

    I'm probably going to reroll anyway (stop laughing skork) tried to Arena last night with a friend of mine who's really good at PvP and I struggled so badly with Hunter, completely different story in BG's... Arena is not friendly to Hunters, especially with everyone playing Warrior/DK/Pally.... seriously is Warrior the new rogue? so much CC and damage output.

    Hunter is the least represented in Arenas, that's not to say they can't be done... but the skill level is super high, and quite frankly I haven't PvPed much since Wrath and I totally suck now.

    I'll probably go DH if it's any good... just need to get home T_T

    Survival hunter artifact weapon is a spear....

    The artifact bow looks badass though, guess that will be for marksman, BM gets a gun.

    They should add a fourth spec to Hunters called "Demon" just to confuse people.

    Demon Hunter starting level has not been set, but a starting level between 95-100 is currently being debated (as it is a Hero Class). It's "hard to imagine a Level 1 Demon Hunter running around Elwynn Forest."
