4th spec to all classes

#1Q_SenseiPosted 2/15/2013 3:00:24 AM
How would you feel about Blizzard adding a 4th spec to all classes?

Sadly it'd likely have to wait until a new expansion. But lets talk hypothetically here.

I guess we are also talking hypothetically as if this topic hasn't been made a bazillion times before?

Thank god, I thought we might go 20 minutes without this thread being made and the world would end.

The end of the world is a pretty big deal man. I'm not sure it's even possible to overdramatize that.

Not really. LB has a point. I was thinking there was a secret society somewhere that brainwashed people into making "4th spec" topics so often. The same society that is also responsible for little old ladies having to count out their change in pennies when they're in front of you buying lunch and you're in a hurry, and also making 2 men carrying a breakable object walking out directly in front of you when you're running for the bus.

Personally I think all the DPS classes should get a Healing or Tanking spec.


Mage - Arcane Warrior Tank - uses Mana Shields to mitigate damage and has active barriers. Uses Telekinesis to pull enemies toward him and makes it so Snares (like Frost Nova) work on bosses.

Warlock - Demonology split into two trees - Transformation and Demonology. Demon Form becomes a tanking form.

Rogue - Trickster/Illusionist - Works similar to how Discipline works now where it's more about damage mitigation. Puts allies into stealth and creates secondary images of them using shadow techniques. Has a few shadow/poison style healing techniques.

Hunter - Medic - Puts special healing herbs and tranquilizers into his gun and shoots them at allies. Has AOE healing "Traps". Can tame pets with specific healing abilities (Like the one with the battle-res.)

Shaman - Protection - Two handed or Sword and Board style tanking. Uses Totems to take damage for him as an active mitigation as well as other abilities.

Paladin - Holy Archer - Let some other class besides hunter have a bow - Paladins are now holy archers, which essentially works as a ranged caster with an effective auto-attack.

Warrior - Rifleman - Similar in concept to the Paladin but goes for guns instead of bows. Has a few added crowd controls like ranged hamstring or disorients.

Deathknight - Dark Necromancy - Healing spec that uses undead flavored spells to heal targets.

Priest - Shadow Warrior - Tanking spec that uses shadowform as a tanking mode.

Monk - Chi (Kamehameha) Fighter - Ranged DPS spec that uses aura bolts to attack enemies - could maintain energy pool or switch to mana like the healing spec.

Druids - they already have 4 specs. The losers. But to be nice they really ought to have armor skins for the shapeshift forms.

Still just no. There's enough issues currently balancing 34 specs. No point in adding 10 more to it which then take more balancing, therefore more resources away from content development. Maybe change existing specs - Unholy DK to use Intellect Plate so there was more use for it than simply just for Paladins, for example, but please just no more specs. Druids got the 4th one because it was basically mandatory when they removed the old talent trees.

Well, they should at least give my Shaman a tanking spec!

It's already practically there!
