    They also have pets, this supports the old report which was dropped a while back from blizzard that the Hero Class for Hunters would be Demon Hunter. Hopefully they'll make it back in when Heros are added. :)

    Note you can see his eye's glowing through the blindfold, hopefully this is fixed as it look funny.

    Same here m8.

    Right now there are 3 confirmed Demon Hunters the one in the screenshot is named Loramus Thalipedes he's a level 57 DH, you meet him for a Mission that starts in Azeroth "Fallen Hero of the Horde" the mission is worth 6600xp.

    egad i hope not. :worried: i'm hoping it'll be DE warrior or rogue -> DH. the only thing demon hunters have in common with WoW hunter is.. well.. the word "hunter."

    They have a bit more in common then just the name. Both are specialty groups built around hunting one type of creature, Hunter focus on wild life and Demon Hunters focus on Demons so it's easy to see that a Hunter could evolve into a Demon Hunter. In WoW Demon Hunters have pet's much like Hunters the only huge difference is that Hunters are more ranged with a bit of melee while Demon Hunters are more or less pure melee based off the NPCs and beta 1.

    Blizzards orginal comment on Demon Hunters was:
    Will there be a Demon hunter class?
    Yes, at around level 40 Night Elf Hunters can start to specialize into a hero class and become a Demon Hunter.

    Though they have yet to say anything more about it or if it has changed. It because of the hushed nature about Heroes that the community has started to question if Demon Hunters are still in and if they are will they still only be open to Night Elf Hunters.

    It was used in as an example during a discussion with a Blizzard rep, doing a goggle search will bring up websites that confirm this or if you want a more trusted site you can visit wow.warcry.com and look at the FAQ note that green is word of mouth. Yes I know it's not big bold Blizzard flash light but it is known and has not been stated otherwise by Blizzard. Note that this was stated along with mentioning that a Dwarven Warrior can become a Mountain King which no one is contesting.

    Another thing about Hunters they do dual wield as confirmed by Nebu I know link: http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.aspx?fn=wow-hunter&t=440&p=1. The only reason why people keep contesting is based off the Range vs Melee, what they don't understand is that Range fits that type of creatures Hunter hunt while Melee fits the type of creatures Demon Hunters hunt. From a RP stand point is makes sense that a Hunter would be a base class (learning how to hunt) and a Demon Hunter would be a branch off that class (learning to hunt a more deadly foe.) Another issues is based off of WC3 that Demon Hunters don't have pets, the problem is that in WoW Demon Hunters do have pets the Felhound and Hunter can tame Felhounds (note only one static NPC DH has been seen with his two Felhound pets.)

    In the end it doesn't matter as Blizzard has removed all information regarding Heroes hell they went as far as to say that there are no plans for Heroes during Gen Con, stating that a player is already Hero from level 1-60. Weather this still stands or the Rep at the time didn't know what he was talking about is not known. So as far as I'm concerned we will not see a Hero type classes and if it is every put in who knows Blizzard might change it so only Orcs and be DH (I'm joking of course.)

    Somewhat off topic, Felhound pets do not leave their masters even though they have a very low happy meter that for some reason can not be raised no matter what the master does, the Felhound is never happy (makes sense for a demon.)

    I'd guess that they'd be hand-to-hand/magic type mainly because in W3 DH is both melee and uses mana burn. So maybe they'd be an anti-caster + melee combo?
