    Well, 6 classes but also 4 paths, so that gives some variety there for launch.

    Given that we already have 2 caster/healer classes, I doubt there will be another pure caster.

    I'm guessing we may see something similar to pre-BC WoW, where each faction had an exclusive class (Paladins and Shaman). They already have most of the basic archetypes covered: tank, healer, melee DPS, ranged DPS, so I expect we're going to see some sort of pet class(es).

    Maybe an engineer type class for the dominion, and a hunter type class for the exiles? Or vice versa?

    I agree variety is the spice of life and 10 abilities even being able to switch specs and abilities out of combat may be a bit constraining to builds and different playstyles. It seems to me that this might be particularly true for tanks and possibly healers as they need more CDs at their disposal to do their jobs. Time will tell though but I would definitely be happy with at least 8 classes and a bit more slots, though I'm playing this game either way.

    I don't believe you read my post carefully.

    There are 2 coming soon, then 2 more boxes under them that say nothing.

    I did read it, I see no boxes below. I see the 4 classes, and 2 coming soon boxes, that is it.

    Those may not be placeholders for classes, but to have the right height, or having the possibility for later classes in other xpacs. Or maybe you are right, but then they should have the same "soon" thing as the two above.

    I think 6 classes is enough for launch.. especially with the paths adding more flavor + each class being able to play different roles (tank or dps, heal or dps). But I noticed that Granok can only be 1 class so far (warrior), so I do find that a little concerning. Maybe they will be able to be both unannounced classes?

    (And hi everyone, lurker here finally getting around to posting :))

    It's just my speculation of course. However, I don't think leaving space for classes that will be added much later (as you suggest; expansion classes, which could also be the case obviously) on the initial release page is a design decision I would personally follow. Since there would be a large overhaul on the web side as well prior to an expansion release anyway. Maybe they are a bit later than the classes that are coming "soon". Maybe they won't even announce these until it is very close to release. I don't know.

    But yeah, guess we'll have to wait and see. It's fun to speculate. :p

    The races and classes pages use the same layout. It's possible they just wanted to fill the holes.

    Fair point actually, gotta fill them holes. Poor Granoks then.
