Diablo 4 Classes
Before this year's BlizzConline, we knew of three playable classes in Diablo 4: Sorceress, Druid, and Barbarian.
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.
For the first time in the Diablo series, you'll be able to play a character that looks more like you, or whoever you want your hero to be.
In Diablo 4, players will be able to crush their enemies with the Barbarian, rip them apart with the Druid, and burn them to ash with the Sorceress.
