Wow: The Tinker - a new class? How could that work?

Update from 15 February 2022: The latest rumors for the next WOW extension called Ashes of Galakaros ** Interestingly, a new class for World of Warcraft brings into play: the Tinker aka hobbist or tinker. According to rumors, the Tinker should have specializations that act as a DPS as well as a healer and tank skill. The focus of the style of play is to stand the backpack of the Tinker, which spits on drones or other automata depending on the specialization. Of course, these rumors are unconfirmed from the WOW developers; However, such a way of play reminds of the Tinker mechanics from Warcraft 3.

It is said that Ashes of Galakaros should have been announced on 18 February 2022. Until then it is today (15.02.2022) a few more days, and we are looking forward to a flitzenbogen as to whether the rumors will become the rumors.

The desire for the Tinker as a WoW class, however, is about as old as World of Warcraft (Buy Now) itself and was often called in classwoods in a breath with death and demon hunter. No surprise for WOW fans: Both ways are now in the game for years. We have looked at some years ago in an article, where the Tinker desire of the Warcraft fans is actually. Here are the origins of the Tinker.

The Tinker - is good for WOW?

The Tinker has been an integral part of each discussion for several years, which revolves around new classes for World of Warcraft. We asked ourselves the question: Why actually? And what can a Tinker contribute to the gameplay? We first look at what a Tinker is at all.

Many players are for the introduction of a Tinker and even have already made class sites and explanations for the homepage. Source: Cadmas The name Tinker means something like crafts or tinker, which serves in the fight of numerous equipment and gadgets. The desire for a Tinker has begun as already with the Pandars with an April Fool's Fisher of Developer Blizzard. On April 1, 2004, the developer team announced that with the next patch for Warcraft 3, a new neutral hero would enter the playing area: the Goblin Tinker.

The enthusiasm of the fans knew no bounds, but then beat the next day in bare disappointment, as Blizzard had to explain that it had only acted by an April Fool. From the number, the developers no longer came out and so they announced two weeks later, according to numerous petitions and countless forum posts, that they will finally implement the Tinker with patch 1.15 as a hero for Warcraft 3.

of the Tinker in Warcraft 3

In Warcraft 3, the players greeted the heroic growth with open arms, he has a variety of fun mechanics in the luggage. With his pocket factory, he produces about clockwork goblins, which approaches-looking enemy units approach and blow up a crater in the impact - which, of course, inflict violent damage to all units nearby. Then, the Warcraft Tinker has a rocket launcher, which also gives fierce surface damage and all the enemies made in addition for a second paralyzes.

The Tinker started in Warcraft 3 as well as the Pandars as April Fool. But the developers finally brought him into the game. Source: Blizzard The best of all skills is the transformation into a robo-goblin. In the form of the mechanical berserker, the Tinker not only gets a bonus on its strength and armor, but also becomes immune to different motion restrictive effects. By upgrades, as usual in Warcraft 3, all skills can be additionally expanded and improved. Born from an April folder, the Goblin Tinker grew beyond himself, avoided the fans and even managed the leap into the world of World of Warcraft - if not as a playable class. For this we look at the Lore around Tinker in Azeroth.

The smartest creatures

Tinker belongs to Azeroth to the bastest residents. They are known as the inventors of unbelievable devices, multifunction knives or siege machines. With their inventions they master almost all situations with links. If you still lack an invention to tackle a particular thing, just invent a new device. However, you also ahead another call.

Many peoples of Azeroths warn their families and friends before traveling with a Tinker, for these, as we know, have a preference for explosive experiments. There can also be something in the eye. Typical peoples who train their members to Tinkern are dwarves, goblins and of course Gnome. All peoples mentioned shine in the production of steam machines, Zeppelinen and other exquisite mechanical inventions in Azeroth.

How does that fit in the game?

Should the developers be inspired by Blizzard from a template for the WoW Tinker, then we recommend the engineer in Guild Wars 2. Source: Arenanet How to implement the class in the game? The Lore is available and Tinker is already available in the game world. How could his skills look like playable class? We could also introduce ourselves to a Tinker who acts as in Guild Wars 2 with flamewrooters and rifles, citizens heals through protagonism or causes permanent damage caused by bombs. Two specializations would be conceivable - one might concentrate on damage, the other could be a supporter with several healing capabilities and crowd control skills. The thought of the paramedic from Wildstar also occurs, who could create with his bots and drones on the one hand for healing, but on the other hand, but also made powerful.

We would definitely inspire the Tinker, so there is no class in WoW yet. And maybe Goblins and Gnome would get a new popularity thrust. What do you think of a new Tinker class and how do you make an implementation? Tell us in the comments with!
