    Add another "5th class" thread to the list...

    Well it's my first time ever trying to "guess" at the fifth class, but I do know how many of these are out there. Ranging from deranged killer clown (Sweet Tooth?) to more serious Rogue/Ranger classes. I fall into the category of more serious guesses. Also, I discovered how bad I am at coming up with "clever" names for skill trees. So here it is!(Quoted for highlight)

    What do you guys think?

    I think I'd like some more details and specifics about skills, to form a fair opinion. My vision of evasion/stealth might differ a lot from yours. Esp as stealth or scouting type skills don't fit in Diablo, since the game is too fast-paced and the levels aren't very large. (A variety of chars had them in pre-D2 development, but they were removed since they weren't really useful.)

    I probably shouldn't have used the word "Stealthy" as "Trickery" would be more or less the gist of it.

    For example of the skills I will just do all three tree's off the top of my head (hadn't really thought specific skills too too much).

    Tree 1 - Being the bow/ranged tree it would encompass similar skills to both the amazon bow/crossbow skills. Also to keep it encompassing all weapons, we would have a throw line. Something like this:

    Throw Expertise (+flat damage & +minor attack speed)
    \/
    Throw Mastery (allow the use of 2x throwing weapons with a decressing/lvl dmg penalty & +critical chance)
    \/
    Throw Frenzy (similar to the Amazon strafe but with 2 weapons)

    As for the nature side of it, it would likely encompass Poison, Physical and Lightning damage boosts. (The lightning again to give a druidism feel to it)

    Tree 2 - Traps is a fairly straight forward name. As to not copy the Assassin traps it would be more or less 1-3 shots of some advantages condition. Something like a Web trap to slow enemies down or a trap that releases wasps to slowly eat away health.

    Tree 3 - The last tree in my mind would be the cunning trickery tree. Blinding the enemies (the D2 Style of stealth), and just basically giving the "Scout" options to avoid damage and enhance his/his parties damage. Now that I think of it take elements of the amazon Passive and Magic, mixed with elements of the Assassin Shadow Disc tree and throw in some elements of the Necromancer Curse tree.

    I think its gonna be something completely different, I find it hard to believe blizzard would save a standard bow class for last.
    But as a class itself, it sounds fine, except for the name "Scout" , just not epic enough :p

    Catapults. No question, confirmed by a mysterious source. (My bored mind) It will be a stronger version of the barbarian to pull it, maybe a GIANT <--New race? :O Slow attack speed, but massive damage. Skills would include all those different catapults from the bloody foothills.

    This made me stop and think. Would they? I am sure they have heard all of the chatter about how it should be a ranged class. But if they have another trick up their sleeve we will find out soon.

    There has to be a ranged class in the game and perhaps it is planned for an expansion.

    Imagine the collective sigh of letdown if it isn't though. People will be quite disappointed. It is the biggest chatter all over the internet besides the Cataclysm expansion for WoW.
