Should we ever see another new "hero" (or any) class at all, I figure it will at least have the option to heal, and I'm curious as to how they could make it different mechanically from other healers. The neatest thing about DKs (second to the ability to tank and dps in any tree), imo, is the rune system, if only because it is unique and separates them from other classes.A melee healer would be pretty cool, but it presents a good deal of logistical problems that would be hard to overcome short of a powerful ranged or aoe heal or the ability to "blink" to players fairly rapidly. If it is too limited by movement no one will have any incentive to ever play one; your heals can crit 80% of the time but it won't matter if you can't cover more than one person or are completely useless in "oh shit" moments or in a spread out fight.That being said, I think GC is right with the damage-to-regen model, if only because they would have to find a way for them to run out of mana. They also severely run the risk of the class being overpowered... who doesn't want an extra half-dps that can raid heal while he/she's at it? They would also have to find a way to make it different enough from Vampiric Embrace to make it both interesting and practical.

I thought for Cat they'd be making use of the rune system just for a class like this. http://www.wowwiki.com/RunemasterLike these guys:http://www.wowhead.com/?npc=23960Guess, we'll have to keep waiting.
