New armour? Very likely. New classes? No way in Utumno.
(There are those who assert to this day that adding the last two classes was a mistake. )
Returning to armour, my thoughts are as follows:
1. The best armour in the game comes from high-difficulty raids.
2. If you don't raid, you don't need raid armour.
3. That said, the ability to get very good armour from grinding something like Hytbold is a great boon, particularly for us weak and squishy types.
So I'd like to see a Hytbold-type gear-yielding grind in the Westemnet. Maybe Helm's Deep will be it ... or maybe not. Remember that all we've seen so far is one dinky press release. We'll find out more as we go along.
