I\'d bet good money that we will know the next D3 class in two days. There will be no new big D3X1 revelations at BlizzCon, just details, because that show will focus almost completely on WOWX5 aka \"The Dark Below\".

@nobbie, I agree with everything you said.
If it was just going to be a press release, it would probably only be the teaser video, but given that Blizzard is actually doing a presentation, it makes a lot more sense to have everything you listed. I doubt there will be any details (beyond what you said above), as I am guessing that all the systems are still being tweaked. And anyway, this initial reveal is more for the world at large, as opposed to providing details for the dedicated fans. I\'m guessing details will be revealed through interviews or at Blizzcon (the CMs and designers said Blizzcon would be big for D3). I doubt they will provide details on what Loot 2.0 means or if there will be a sharagon system or what the new end game content is. Like you said, this is a marketing opportunity

I think I\'m not giving away too much when I tell you that Blizzard has a lot D3-related to say in two days.

I don\'t think they will fully reveal anything in which I\'m saying is that they\'ll show just enough to only leave us with a good enough direction to speculate on the new class, the new lore, the new bad guy/boss but there will probably be some idea of the loot 2.0 maybe.
I\'ve said this before many times the new class will most likely be a shaman type class that uses totems, shape shifting and elemental magic. My other two guesses would be a necromancer or Death Knight.
Ah yes what nobbie posted http://diablo3.gamona.de/w/images/d/...k_panel_01.jpg
surprised they had this concept art back then I did not even know. I think that confirms it but the theme of this expansion could say other wise with its dark death tone. Regardless the new class if it is a druid/shaman I think will be interesting if it uses totems which will be indicative of a positional character in game play where the totems will be used as traps such as stuns, damage and also healing/aura buffing.

Hey Dacar92, I have recieved no e-mail, I imagine the one I was using in my previous post does not like mail sent from this domain etc, I have changed the e-mail in this reply, if you can see it? If not let me know however and hopefully we can get it sorted! Thanks again, and sorry for intruding on the post.

I thought Neinball\'s theory about the Demon Hunter half demon thing was reasonable. Bliz clearly liked the idea and showed us a ton of images and talk about it during the DH panel. Seemed like they rejected it more for \"this class is an archer\" than for any other reason. And the 6th class won\'t be an archer, so it\'s a definite possibility. I\'m not thinking it\'ll be just like that old concept art, but inspired by, perhaps?

We debated that one years ago when it was first seen. It was on the first first b-roll art vid from 2008, so it\'s very early character art and could have evolved a lot since then. If not for her holding the snake I\'d say it\'s 100% female barb. Same hair, muscular body, face, and lots of the barb gear is animal-themed, so that looks like an early more-shaman style char concept. Rather than some other class design that they considered and scrapped.
They\'ve got a bunch of art like that, but they don\'t let us see it, and this image was released when we only had the Barb and WD in the game, so I don\'t think they\'d have let it out otherwise.
One of the comments says maybe it\'s Asheara. I guess we can rule that one out now, at least.
