Legion sees the introduction of the new mighty Demon Hunter hero class. Only the second hero class, after the Death Knight, Demon hunters can operate as either a damage dealer or a tank, turning the power of the Burning Legion against foes. They forgo heavy armour in favour of speed, meaning they are only capable of equipping cloth or leather, and Demon Hunters can only be Night Elves or Blood Elves. Being a hero class, they will more than likely start at a high level, probably 100.
Demon Hunters come with two specs; Havoc for DPS, and Vengeance for tanking. They use their spectral sight to detect enemies, even those behind obstacles, can metamorphosis into fel forms, are able to channel the chaos energy within them into their melee weapons, have the power to cover their bodies in a shell of flame, are able to double jump in and out of combat (probably their most exciting feature), and can even unfold their wings allowing them to performing gliding descents to surprise unsuspecting enemies from above.
