Demon Hunter class page is live @ Blizzard --> http://us.blizzard.com/diablo3/characters/demonhunter.xml
It looks cool and you had to admit, Demon hunters make a lot of sense in the Diablo universe (no matter that they share the name with a class in Warcraft that also fought demons).
Absolutely shaping up to be millions of times better than D2. Demon Hunter definately fits. Oh and cmon don't QQ until you play the game. "OMGEEZ NO AMAZON OR ASSASSIN! IT'S 2012 ALREADY" Just Enjoy Blizzcon. Keep the updates coming guys/gals ^_^.
The fact that they were in Diablo 2, and Blizzard didn't want to reuse any more classes.
Just be thankful. I mean really, it could have been a whole lot worse.
