OK apparently i need to own that fail game world of warcraft to post in the blizzard forums... so i will rant here
first off i would love to see a charecter with light armor such as a cloak. the classic hood would be badass with armor surrounding it. I would love to see that evil element in a charecter such as a reaper. a charecter that could implement 3 skill trees, scythe mastery, Banishing (or some dark magic) and Some Aura's, because we are missing those. You know those badass weapons like the scythe and a Giant Cresent Moon Blade. THAT is what i would love to see this charecter specializing in. Have melee (scythe mastery) Defense (Auras) and a mix of hexing and or cursing (banishing or whatever)i would love to play as a charecter with a giant cresent moon blade. Wearing a badass hooded cloak to conseal the charecers identity abit, to add a little mystery to the plot line.
Edit: maybe your playing as a banished charecter that served diablo? i dont know i see SO MUCH POTENTIAL! :starwars:
I think those "Evil" elements you speak of might actually be part of the 5th class whatever its going to be. But i dont think the scythe specialization would fit, and probably not the names "Reaper" / "Dervish" also. I like cloaks and hoods though so i kinda agree on that point.
I think that they will save the idea of an evil-turned-good character for an expansion and not the original release. I also do not think that any character will specialize in a specific weapon. Don't get me wrong though, Scythes are my favorite weapon types (it even inspired part of my user name). I do hope that the class with auras has a unique twist on it. The only other main problem I have with the class is the evil/dark magic. Diablo keeps their magic types to a set core and I do not see them adding evil/dark magic.

I'm not a fan of classes too expecialised in a certain weapon type. Imo the player should choose the weapon w/o strong bias.
The class could be a great scyther user, ok, but not a entire set of skills based on it...
I like the hood/cloak concept ad i'm ok with the dark magic. But it looks like a expasion character you know..
