THE POWER (you've got it)
The ancient gods of Path of Exile have slumbered for thousands of years, and for all intents and purposes they have vanished from the world. Obviously, with the launch of The Fall of Oriath expansion, those deities will be coming back to the forefront, so you can’t forget about them. But while you’ll be interacting with them heavily in that expansion (seriously, you can read all about it) you could forget that they exist otherwise… unless you pick up one of the new unique items being added to the game in update 2.6.

There are three new items being added to the game that each contains some small hint of the powers of these departed entities. Garukhan’s Flight improves your ability to heal and recover so long as you remain forever moving, Tidebreaker is all about stunning your targets into complacency as befits a mace, and the Martyr of Innocent lets you block more readily whilst spreading fire damage. Check out the exact stats in the official preview, and get ready to go searching for the smallest fragment of these divine powers.

Think this game will get a new class soon?

No since there are no classes in the game as it is. Every “class” is just in a different position around the wheel.

I wouldn’t mind seeing the wheel expanded though.

It’s kind of huge already, I don’t think we’ll ever see it expanded. I think they went for seperate specialization wheels with Ascendancy because adding more stuff to the normal wheel would have been very difficult to do right.

I could see ascendancy being expanded at some point. While it will still mean a lot of work balancing it wouldn’t be such a monumental task and a bit more manageable than changing the passive forest

This is wrong actually. With the introduction of ascendancies, the classes themselves are actually very important now. You can kinda build around the same items and gems, but the experience will be different because the Ascendancy options are just that much more powerful and build defining than everything else.

But to answer the initial question, no. If they were to do so the entire tree would have to be revamped, which isn’t happening soon.
