During this week’s podcast, Justin expressed some frustration over his efforts to enjoy an alt in World of Warcraft. All of his characters, he said, just didn’t feel the same, and he wasn’t loving them. In the end, he rekindled his love for all things demonic with his Warlock, but what went through my mind — prompted by other topics on our agenda that day, like Black Desert’s Dark Knight — is this: Isn’t it time for a new WoW class altogether?
I ask this because I’ve shared Justin’s annoyance over losing my own emotional attachment to my WoW characters as they’ve taken so many twists and turns in what they can functionally do over the years. I really liked the Monk class because it didn’t have that baggage. (Demon Hunters, not so much, not really my thing — I thought they were a bit redundant in theme.)
A true bard class, however, would basically get my instant preorder, and this from a girl who hasn’t had an urge to play in a long time. And I’m not crazy: Go forth and google “WoW bard” and take a look at all the people anxious to see it happen post-Legion — and not just in April Fool’s Day fun.
Also, bards are the best class, period.
Do you think WoW needs a new class in the next expansion? Do you think it’s ever going to happen?
