Even though Diablo 3 is bringing us a total of 4 new classes, fans are talking about what type of class they would like to see in the expansion pack. Bashiok joined in on the discussion and had this to say:
I’m in no way aware of any future ideas or plans for classes that may or may not be considered for the future … I wish I was! But I’m not. That out of the way, personally I really like the idea of demonic or angelic ‘inflicted’ class. It was something we explored with the demon hunter, who at one time had a demonic arm (reference BlizzCon 2010 gameplay panel for visuals). I think that’d be interesting to explore, especially on the angelic side. I’m really into Paladin/holy warrior classes, and that infused with angelic powers and visuals would probably be pretty close to my perfect class I think. I just don’t really know what implications that has on lore.
The monk hits it pretty close, though, and the barbarian is definitely out for noble (if not selfish) causes. I’m personally in love with each of the five classes we have right now, and am still torn on which one to play first on launch day… (leaning towards WD)
