As Diablo Immortal is out now and ready for you to sink your teeth into, we decided to give you a little help getting started. And, where better to begin than with a list of Diablo Immortal classes? That’s the biggest choice you’ll make in the action MMORPG, as it dictates your entire playstyle.
Fortunately for long-term fans of the series, many of your favourite Diablo Immortal classes return. Whether it’s the savagely violent Barbarian, mystical Monk, or undead-loving Necromancer, you can play the mobile version of Diablo in much the same manner as Diablo III. It won’t be exactly the same though, as NetEase and Activision have adjusted the experience quite fundamentally to fit on mobile.
But, we’ll get into all of that and more in this guide. If you’re brand new to this ARPG, make sure you head on over to our Diablo Immortal servers guide, it will help you work out where you should play. Speaking of which, our Diablo Immortal download guide lets you know how to install the game.

Which Diablo Immortal classes can we expect to see later?
Given that Diablo Immortal sits on the timeline between Diablo II and Diablo III, it’s feasible that we can see classes from either game make an appearance.
From Diablo II, we already have the Barbarian and Necromancer, though, arguably, the Paladin and Sorceress share a lot of similarities between the Crusader and Wizard respectively. That leaves only the Amazon being largely viable to return.
Out of the Diablo III batch, all but the Witch Doctor are available in Immortals from launch, so it wouldn’t hugely surprise us if we see that class arrive at some point.
