6th Character class to be revealed and added before launch *look*

The blizzard splash screen for all the information about the classes being released until the launch day of diablo 3, each class fills a bubble, there are five classes, but 7 bubbles, one bubble is filled with the diablo 3 release date, that leaves a mysterious bubble unfilled.

Possible that it may be a 6th class, the devs said Diablo 3 would recieve some extremely shocking news before its released, two top devs have been saying there is not 6th class out of no where, almost sarcastically on the offical forums,

 

A 6th class can have internal testing to rid of bugs, just because players are not playing it does not mean it can not be tested and bug free by the devs/blizzard employees.

 

If it is a new class, its either a shield user or a Shape Shifter.

    A LOT of speculation going on here but my guess is the 6th class is Mage (enchanting class) with CC and charm and so on because these skills are missing on all the other classes. I expect this class to have a lot more utility and use the monsters as pets instead of casting them.

     

    /just a guess

    Paladin or druid if I was to guess, I would love to play a class that made better use of a shield. However I loved my druid back in D2

    Maybe I am looking at the wrong page but I can't find these empty bubbles. Also link to devs announcing "extremely shocking news"?

  • dubyahitedubyahite Lincoln, NEPosts: 2,483Member

    They said they were going to have a way for all the people who missed any of the rewards to grab them all on one day near launch. 

     

    My guess is that is what the last bubble is for.  

     

    If not, it's obviously pandas.

    if you follow the us d3 link (http://us.battle.net/en/int?r=d3) at the bottom between the bubble 05.01 and 05.15 theres a empty one with a lock inside.

    That bubble will be an 'X' which is closing the page!

    We have reached a new low in fanboy speculation:  Empty box on some obscure post = NEW playable class.  YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST!

    how is it an obscure post? If you go to diablo.com and click on recent news, you can see what is described at the bottom of the page (above the footer at least). It does not take a whole lot of hunting around and it is not a giant leap in logic to look at the existing pattern, showing the various classes, and come to a conclusion.

    It is still speculation, but really, this is tame compared to the typical hyperbole filled predictions that grace this site.

    I do agree with a previous poster that it likely would have been data mined by now so not convinced it is a new class, but that would be pretty neat and a way to keep that first mission fresh for those who have run it over, and over, and...well you get the point. :)

    Yeah I don't thnk so. I don't see how they could hide the 6th class so well for so long. o.O

    That empty thing is something else. Maybe for other pepole (like me) to get sigils like they said.

    Also, news that they're hiding? Link to Blizz post, please.

    Really really far fetched.

    But the game does lack melee class aside from Barbarian.

    It's going to be the last week to redeem the class sigils you may have missed over the last 5 weeks.

    This, as you cannot completely hide the existence of a class in a game where so much is class-defined in the game assets.

    It's for the day-one-DLC announcment.

    That, and it would be about the dumbest move Blizzard has made yet to have a 6th class, completely untested, released into the main game. I mean sure they have their internal testers, but fact of the matter is internal testing doesn't mean jack sheet for a game. Not saying they couldn't do a good job, its just that its impossible for a small number of testers to do a good job.

    So, you are telling us that they are going to reveal a new class which has not been through beta testing? And no, in house testing doesn't even come close to beta. Not in a game like Diablo.

    My friend works at GameStop and she texted me that the delivery today was sealed and marked "DO NOT OPEN UNTIL MAY 8th".  Which coincedentally is exactly one week after they released the Wizard.  Is it possible there is artwork on the Diablo Box that gives away the 6th class?

    Truly it seems preposterous to add a 6th class which has not been tested to the game right before release, but if you take a look at that link, what else would you expect to appear in that bubble. 

    I mean there are five bubbles each of which has a character portrait inside, then one bubble with a lock and then one with release date.

    If I saw this without any context or information available, it would automatically occur to me that the last bubble will also include portrait of some character...we'll see..cannot wait :)

     The character i'm sure would have been tested heavily if there was one. The last lock will be a picture of diablo however, sorry guys no paladin.

    Most... quality testing is actually done in-house. Player testing is horrifically terrible in comparison. Player testing doesn't really do anything except find bugs from the player perspective, see how the game plays, do stress test, balance test, that kind of stuff. Do you know what real testing looks like? Sitting and clicking the same thing over and over and over and over and over again and recording it somewhere and seeing what sequence makes something break.

    Blizzard has devs playing in places like Inferno. Who do you think tested 90% of the game. Blizzard did. In-house. And I'd be highly worried if it was otherwise. Beta only got a small portion of act 1 and rotated skills. You can't test much with that at all.

    The whole idea of player beta test is actually pretty new and more of a marketing scheme than anything. It was never needed and plenty of games came out bug free and balanced without it in the past.

    I was not in any of the betas for this game and was thinking of just buying it when it came out.  I saw someone refer to something "class sigils?"  Does this mean that if I follow with my plan I will be shooting myself in the foot and there is something I should be doing RIGHT NOW to not end up way behind at the beginning?
