Rumours of a new 'Prestiege/Hero class'

Ever wondered what it would be like to be just like Illadan Stormrage? Ever seriously considered taking a break from the same old grind of being a Hunter or Rogue? yea me too...

...Well it looks like we may get more than we counted on, this is the second Prestige/Hero class announced (the first being the Death knight) that will be available in the upcoming expansion.

The 'Demon Hunter' will initially be available to the two elf races (Blood Elfs and Night Elfs) and (although Human hunters will be available they will require a slightly longer quest chain in order to do so) is technically the prestige class of Hunters and Rogues if the lore is to be believed, However with this said Death knights are only supposed to be available to Warriors and Paladins so as always the rumor mill may not be very reliable here...

Combining the melee DPS of a Rogue with the ranged attack power (abiet magically) and tracking skills of a hunter while weilding the frankly awesome warglieves available ONLY to this class these blind & half naked warriors take to the battlefield wielding there demon hunting weapons (boath ranged magicle weapons and there glieves) cutting a line through even the most hardy Demonic & undead foe's it appears that blizzard have created one of the most devistating classes available in the game.

Wowwiki has this to say on this class:

Demon hunters are dark, shadowy warriors who are shunned by the greater Night Elf society. They made a pact, long ago, to fight against the forces of chaos using its own terrible powers against it. These mysterious warriors ritually blind themselves so that they develop 'spectral sight' that enables them to see demons and undead with greater clarity. They wield demonically charged warblades in battle and even call upon demonic energies to augment their formidable combat skills. Although they are counted as some of the mightiest warriors within the Night Elves' society, the Demon Hunters are always maligned and misunderstood for making their selfless pact with darkness. Demon Hunters are skilled warriors who have pledged their lives to fighting evil by using its own powers against it. Though many among the night elves and the Alliance fear the demon hunters and their pact with darkness, all know that demon hunters and their demonically-charged warblades have played an important part in combating what remains of the Burning Legion.

i gotta say, i REALLY wanna play this class no matter the cost! lets just hope Blizz don't mess it up... hey we can hope right...
