Diablo III hasn’t had the smoothest of lifetimes. It was revealed to great hype (as Diablo II was much beloved), but then, as players actually played the game, the flaws almost immediately began to show. To the extent that Blizzard basically had to streamline and reboot it with Reaper Of Souls. Then, when players complained about a lack of unique classes, like what they had in Diablo II, they made the Rise of the Necromancer expansion. But through that, a question is raised. Could more classes come?
This comes from Redditor DarkDill, but he also takes it a step further. For they don’t just want a new class, they want a class that’ll fill up a “vacant” skill slot. In his mind, there needs to be a STR focused class, and a DEX focused class. To him, the Necromancer filled the INT slot. It’s an intriguing idea, and he goes further with what he’d like to see.
For the Dexterity class, they think it would be cool to bring in a pirate-like character, even giving the classic flintlock pistol as a weapon. As for the strength class, he honestly wasn’t sure what to put there, but there are likely options he’s not thinking of.
A funny idea he had was bringing a Bard into the game, complete with harp! That would be a fun twist on the typical class.
The rest of Reddit were happy to weigh in on this subject too, including giving an idea for the STR-focused class: A Dwarf, or a shapeshifter, some even thought of an Amazon-like character. They also recommended a Druid for DEX. So you see, there are possibilities out there.
But, the foundation here is whether Blizzard will even consider putting new classes in the game. It took them a long time to put the Necromancer in, will they focus on putting yet another one in? It’s hard to say.
