The ideas for making warlocks more like hunters are a bit weird to me. Hunters are supposed to be more "one with nature" and have a more companionship with their pets (don't ask about undead hunters >.>). Warlocks are all about dominating and enslaving. They summon their minions from the Twisting Nether; they don't find them roaming around in Elwynn Forest and say, "Hey, that's a pretty sweet-looking bear. Hey bear, want to be my friend?"With the amount of demons we have, its already a given that one will be marginalized, depending on what Blizzard feels like doing that expansion. In Cata for PvE, imp (destro), Fel Guard (AoE demo), VW (situational soloing or PvP), and Succy (single-target demo and afflic) are the best options. Felhound is a situational PvP minion that has been nerfed due to Succy's glyph. However, it was Succy that was worthless is Wrath and TBC (mostly). Additionally, in Cata they made Inferal and Doomguard powerful cooldowns instead of novelty summons.With all that, the last thing we need is another demon to muddy the waters even further. I like that the minions have their specialty and that one is best for a certain job. What role would another demon fulfill? Healer? That's just craziness. However, a Shivarra healer minion would be pretty sick :). The only other role I could see another minion fill would be another ranged, shadow caster (dots or nukes). Everyone loves variety, myself included, but having additional summoning/enslaving demon options would make warlocks hunters with spells. I do not think that adding demons would do anything but give us different options for how the minions look and unnecessarily complicate the choice of which one to use in a certain situation.
