    Place your bets! These are the next two classes appearing in D3

    Those of you who have spent any time in the Character area of the diablo.incgamers.com forums know I'm pulling for the bard in the character D3 character releases... But i can say i would love to play any of these chracters that weve created/talked about in all of these posts. We've all had great points and helped make every ones ideas better.

    With all of that being said...

    What 2 characters do you think are showing up. Don't explain it. Just say it. Gut feeling. Don't defend your post, grow a pair, stand firm, say it like you mean it. THESE CLASSES WILL SHOW UP. Pretend like we are making bets here. Winner gets bragging rights. Thats all.

    I know theres a poll up top, but its doens't have all the choices. So yeah.

    Heres mine:

    The Bard and The Knight. These will be the next two classes int he Diablo 3 core game.

    a bard would be awesum! If they are gonna ad a bard I'd blindly take this char without even lookin' at the skill tree..

    also, I like to see the monk comin' back.. i never played D1, so I dont know what skills the monk has, but just like a bard. - I'd take it blindly..

    (yeh, bard and monks are cool.. any game ;P)

    1. Rogue
    2. Monk

    Probably not both of them, but I bet with all the confidence in the world 1 of them will be.

    After careful elimination:

    1. Archer (pure) or Shapeshifter (an archer-druid hybrid)


    2. Cleric or Crusader (copies of paladin with minor mechanical changes)

    I know it's 4 and cheating, but I want those bragging rights bad.

    You'll only get 1/4th of the bragging rights.

    1. ranger (combination of bow and mele with minor nature/survival/stealth/... elements).
    2. light footsoldier with elementalist elements.

    1. Cleric.
    2. Ranger type character (medium-heavy ranged and melee). Elementalism possible.

    Expansion characters, FTW:
    3. Bard.
    4. Shapeshifter.

    Exactly this.

    And I would L O V E to see a skill like paladin's Charge come back. I know Barbarian has one, but I'd like a similar to D2 paladin's. Awesome skill for an "outsider" build...

    Sorry for double posting, I forgot the Necromancer. I just don't give a **** if he is similar to WD. I want him back definitely, at least in the expansion :(

    A Necro is probably the safest bet for an expansion char.
    Yet the worst one for the core game.

    The Necromancer will be in the 2nd expansion.

    Yes, there will be 2 expansions. At least.

    I get quad-props if they actually do put out 2 of them!! :D

    1. Hunter or Rogue.
    2. Swashbuckler.

    Really though, a well done swashbuckler would be awesome

    Re: Place your bets! These are the nest two classes appearing in D3

    Here are my two guesses:-

    -Raider (desert type archer who uses ranged and swift light melee attacks plus shields and traps)
    -Shape Shifter (i say from the demonic variety, like the cultists, he gets possessed and transformers into various demonic forms)

    My guesses:

    1. Thief.
    2. Shape-shifter.

    The shape-shifter seems like a pretty popular pick. In the spirit of the thread, I want to give it a specific name, but it's difficult to guess exactly what kind of a character it would be. I'd have to lean toward something demonic, though, like Knight_Wolf guessed.

    Blizzard has as much as confirmed this already, so I'm not sure about "quad" props.
    http://diablo.incgamers.com/blog/comments/diablo-3-will-have-several-expansions/

    I say we see the ranger/archer/rogue, whatever "the bow-user with a twist" character is, announced at blizzcon. I was right last year, since I thought we'd see the mage then. A few weeks before the show, I was talking to Bashiok and said something like, "I hope you guys are revealing the mage, since everyone knows you're going to have one. Get the obvious out of the way and then we can have more fun guessing about #4 and #5."

    He replied in some noncommittal CM-ish fashion, of course. Haven't tried the same thing with the archer yet this year.

    Well, I completely missed that!! Of course, I haven't really taken a keen interest in D3 until way after that article, so that makes my speculation moot. Since I reached that conclusion without any direct clues, I can at least be proud of myself! :p

    Really when you think about it, the last few D2 patches have been free "mini-expansions", starting with 1.10. Between synergies, Ubers, and some of the new 1.13 features like respeccing, it could all mount up to almost be a full expansion. Almost.

    Of course this is all totally off topic...

    Expansion #2:
    Necromancer
    Soldier (a civilization based heavy armor/weapon melee character to compliment the Barb, maybe some Pally aspects. Probably a pole weapon specialist. )

    I would totally love to see a Steam-Punk inspired character class that brings some post-apocalyptic tech into an ancient world.

    Also, a vampire class could also be quite interesting (melee, shape shifting, magic)
