Why do people think Blizz is against new hero classes? In the Cataclysm FAQ, they flat out say they are planning on adding more.

http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/cataclysm/faq/ Scroll down to the 6th question from the bottom.We are not planning to add a new Hero class in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. For this expansion, it was more appropriate to focus on the two new races, the goblins and worgen. We never intended to include a Hero class in every expansion. As you saw with death knights, adding a new class changes the dynamics of the game dramatically, which is not something we want to do in every expansion. WE STILL HAVE PLANS TO INTRODUCE NEW HERO CLASSES IN THE FUTURE.

"We decided to focus on providing more end-game and maximum-level content for players. We learned a lot from Wrath of the Lich King, and want to ensure players have more content to experience right away when they reach the new cap of level 85."They also said that in the same Q&A which most players won't agree they have done. I'm still hoping for another class but they've changed major plans before. Path of the Titans, Dance Studio, threat...

Doesn't mean they'll actually do it - they scrapped the Abyssal Maw after all.

Lich king FAQ huh? Here's a little FAQ of my own. Coming soon to Azeroth: -Dance studio-Path of Titans-New Character modelsAnything you see on there that may happen in the near future?

I would love a new class. I would love to hit the lottery. Not sure which one is more likely to happen first :p In all seriousness, I think I am ready for the Monk/Bard class. I think the Pandaren would be good to introduce us to Monks. I don't think this next expac will have either a new class or race. I hope I am wrong. But I just don't see it.

This has been stated many times before, but the Path of the Titans was scrapped in favor of the new glyph system. I can't find the source but that system is the customization that PoT would have brought. Just not as fancy or resource intensive (for Blizzard to make).

http://blue.mmo-champion.com/topic/2623/1-new-class-in-5-years-not-acceptable"Beyond the balance concern, which is a valid one, we don't want to over-saturate World of Warcraft with different classes. We want to make sure each class has a very distinct set of core mechanics from other classes. Continually introducing new classes can tend to bring about a feeling of redundancy if we're not fully comfortable with developing an entirely new set of mechanics distinct from the current classes. This does not mean that we'll never consider adding new classes to the game as time moves on, but we're pretty happy with the play styles represented by the classes currently available."------While this is from late '09, it pretty much says there are no plans to implement another class (soon)Just look at the Sunwalker example: lore-wise, its own class, but too close to the Paladin to be its own class in the game. Of course the devs likely didn't think of Sunwalkers first, then decided to emulate them as Paladins, but rather decided to give Tauren the Paladin (and Priest) class and created the Sunwalkers for that purpose, but that shows as well that they'd rather not implement a new ingame class.
