Forgive me for the idle speculation here.
I'm still pretty unsure whether the next class will be a pirate class, but there's some evidence that point toward this conclusion, namely the new cash shop items added in this patch which all have a pirate theme. Similar to how Evan and Aran had their items introduced before their classes were fully revealed, the same is happening here with the Hawkeye items.
Another interesting turn of events is how they changed the Shammos PQ mobs. They all now have a flag set called "noDoom" which suggests that priests cannot use doom on these mobs. I do ask - why? This PQ is really meant for those 70 - 90, and it's rare that any priest would get Doom in those levels favoring Shining Ray, Holy Symbol, and Dispel.
