Diablo 4 Classes
Diablo 4 Necromancer gameplay preview showcases new ways to explode corpses or shower enemies in blood
The Necromancer in Diablo 4 has been outlined in one of the Diablo 4 Quarterly Updates, which we talked about somewhat briefly in the overall roundup post for D4's classes.
Thanks to a deluge of news, we officially have the fifth and final Diablo 4 class revealed — but that's just at launch.
Which classes are in Diablo 4? With the introduction of the Necromancer, we now know all of the game’s five classes
When Diablo 4 was announced, we only knew about three classes: Sorceress, Druid, and Barbarian.
Blizzard has announced Diablo 4's fifth class: the fan-favorite Necromancer.
Before I saw the Diablo 4: What's Next? video during BlizzConline, I was of the opinion -- based on what was said at BlizzCon 2019 -- that we would be getting five playable classes for Diablo 4 in total.
In the Diablo 4 December 2020 quarterly developer blog, Luis Barraga promised us a new version of the BlizzCon 2019 campfire scene, referencing the class selection window that presented us with the title's first three classes — the Sorceress, Druid, and Barbarian.
Fans wanted some real meat about Diablo 4 at BlizzConline, and they got it: the Rogue will be a playable class in the upcoming game.
We know that Diablo 4 is going to have some unique mechanics for each class, which is pretty awesome -- the Arsenal system for Barbarians allows them to switch between a massive two-handed club, a sword, even two weapons based on the situation, while the upcoming Enchantment system for Sorceress characters lets them place certain skills in a special Enchantment slot and transform an active skill into a passive proc.
We don't know for certain yet, but I cannot seem to make myself imagine a Diablo 4 without Necromancers, especially since I'm fairly convinced that Rathma -- aka Linarian, the son of Lilith and Inarius, the guy who essentially created the idea of Necromancy in the Diablo universe -- seems to be the weird guy in the cinematic who summons Lilith back to Sanctuary.
Amazons pose a very interesting challenge when it comes to Diablo -- or heck, any sort of mythos, really.
