    DISCLAIMER: Information presented here are not official.

    Many fans have speculated on the Druid’s return in the next expansion pack since none of the 6 existing classes can change their forms for any long period of time.

    They could very well be right after looking at the artwork posted by one David Ko, a (former?) concept art intern on the D3 team:
    http://davidkoblizzardportfolio.************.au/2014/01/blizzard-diablo-3-internship-portfolio.html

    His Crusader and Barbarian artworks are pretty impressive and well worth a look, I am only linking images relevant to the Druid here.

    Druid sketches:

    He is drawn using either bow & quiver, dual daggers as well as a spear.
    He has a Wolfman style bipedal from and a four legged lion-like from

    The demon skulls and fangs make this version a bit more intimidating than his D2 counterpart:

    How can I dislike anything Druid related? Looks really nice, though Druid and bow? Both lion and wolf awesome.

    Still Amazon and Necro are my first 2 options for next xpac. Though forever Druid :)

    I've always really hoped for the druid as a class. I enjoyed the play style of the Sorceress and Druid in Diablo 2 more than any other class. The closest thing I found in D3 to match either of the 2 was my demon hunter to kinda match my old sorceress. I never could get into the wizard. I'll keep my fingers crossed that the druid might return, but I'm not going to let my hopes get up though. :)

    Either way the art is pretty cool and thanks for sharing it.

    Nice find! Would love a druid class in D3. He looks way more badass than the D2 version, who was one of my favourites.

    Won't get my hopes up though, as we know how Blizzard can chuck out a near complete piece of work without batting an eyelid.
