I'm rather intrigued on how bundle companions after Nausica will come out. What we've seen out of her is a powerful Musketeer who can attack at up close and at a range as well as the first side companion to recieve more than 3 epics over 2 promotions. I'm pretty interested to know how other companions from future bundles will stack up to her.

The only class yet to recieve a bundle themed toward or around them are the Witchdoctors and seeing how the Boochbeard Bundle gave a Swashbuckler Companion, the Cutthroat Bundle gives a Buccaneer Companion, the Admiral Bundle gives a Privateer Companion, and the Empire Bundle gives a Musketeer Companion, it only seems logical that the next bundle to come would include a Witchdoctor Companion (though a permanent Swashbuckler themed bundle could pop up).

If we were to assume that a Witchdoctor bundle was planned and came much later in the year, what do you think the power would be of this companion? Would he/she be like Nausica, and be able to attack at range and up close, or would he/she come with a very large number of powers that will blow away the competition. Or maybe he/she will just be a major powerhouse against other Witchdoctors (which may or may not be a problem seeing as they make up a smaller portion of game enemies). I'd like to see a witchdoctor companion able to get Intiution, or even Swift Retribution.

What are your thoughts?

I was thinking about this myself and I thought of something interesting.

The Bundle could be a Magic or Snake Bundle with some according items and companion for each

The Magic Bundle would have a witchdoctor Bunny (the cute kind) and will have powers that create unbreakable walls that cant be jumped over along with of course plenty of epics (including a new one I will mention later)
along with a magician's looking outfit and a very neat weapon known as the magic wand of mojo which glows and changes colors every few minutes

And the Snake bundle will have a witchdoctor Ophidian (the witchdoctors from Aquila) who can summon plenty of minions including a new power called "Call of the snakes" which summons many snake minions who have the same stats as you (but their's will be cut in half) and a power that doubles the will of every witchdoctor including enemy witchdoctors.
The weapon will be a staff with a snake coiled up around it with the end of the snake forming a cobra hood on the very end of the staff.

also the new epic they have

Undeade Finale
Which does a 100% hit rate 5x attack to the one that killed the person with it

"The Magic Bundle would have a witchdoctor Bunny (the cute kind)"
The creativity is strong with this one...
A cute bunny eh? Seems a bit anti climatic concerning the Pirate Themed combat in this game, but then again, who am I to control which companions get introduced?

But all jokes aside, your ideas for those 2 bundles seem very nice

Well we got a Bundle after all :D

true it isn't a cute bunny or a deadly viper of sorts but we do get a monkey as a companion in it
:D
(see the thread "A prediction gone correct? witchdoctor Bundle?" for info on the newly released bundle)

Well, KI just released the Hoodoo Bundle in Walmart. It has a Monkey Bokor companion who comes with "Go Bananas" aka Reckless Frenzy. So, I just wonder how this will affect PVP.

Sry, I meant to put this in my previous post(Sorry at this moment in time I'm sleepy lol) but the Hoodoo Bundle is(of course) Witchdocter theamed. Also, it comes with a ship, special Witch-based gear and a special housing item.
