    With the idea that the Necromancer is an Int based class, if Druid were released as a strength based class; I think it makes the most sense if Blizzard went either a ranged melee class similar to the Amazon, or something more stealth like such as a rogue.


    The idea of a class built around duel wielding daggers like a rogue intrigues me because the concept is already in the game. Daggers naturally roll lower DPS than any other weapon in the game, and they could use that to their advantage when creating duel dagger synergies in the sets or passive skills even. Imagine one of the first passives you unlock is a 50% damage bonus while duel wielding daggers...or something along those lines. Something like this would make legendary daggers viable to use on hand and not "cube only" options which right now seems to be an issue in the game.


    Also, having this idea of a stealth or surprise could be an interesting mechanic within the game.


    Since the Necromancer had 3 properties as well when being developed, I will do the same here. I think the following things to keep in mind here when designing the Rogue/Shadow class are as follows:

    1. Dagger Mastery

    2. Stealth

    3. Combos


    The combo aspect could be a very new and exciting introduction to D3's current playstyle. If there were certain skills that triggered other skills via runes or even passives, this could be a really cool concept. Balancing could potentially be an issue though.

    Literally the only reason I chose to use Corruption for this was because of the artwork....so perhaps they could reassign the artwork to these shoulders but keep their original functionality and apply it to a new pair? OR.....they could just make a more "Hydra friendly" looking pair of shoulders. I personally think this game is missing a serious amount of viable legendary shoulders....I mean especially with what Demonmonger said about the "ignores durability shoulders" like wtf is that Blizzard?

    I would not remove useful items like you suggest.


    That being said, I like the build idea. A lot actually, seems quite a bit overpowered, but could be tweaked through play trials.

    In regards to all the concern with "removing items" what i mean by that is keeping the artwork but renaming them to fit their new role as an item. Blizzard does this all the time in their patch notes, I'm unsure as to why so many were confused by this phrasing but oh well.

    I don't see the purpose, at all, for removing currently exisiting pieces, even if they ARE more or less useless. Revamping them to have a new legendary? Sure. Removing? No.

    I don't disagree at all, however this was literally just a fun idea I envisioned and thought would be a lot of fun to play and would fit in some of my personal favorite skills such as Hydra. The problem is, as soon as they get things balanced, they will add new stuff, which will unbalance the game again....so there's no real way to fix it all, so personally I think they should add affixes to currently existing items first, then focus on balancing them in a new PTR.
