As Diablo Immortal gets closer to a full launch (seriously, the wait can’t be much longer, right?) we’ve decided to take a closer look at some of the game’s features to help you plan ahead. And, where better to start than with a list of Diablo Immortal classes? That’s the biggest choice you’ll make in the upcoming action MMORPG, as it dictates your entire playstyle.
Fortunately for long-term fans of the series, many of the favourites 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 eagerly anticipating the arrival of this ARPG, make sure to keep a close eye on our Diablo Immortal release date guide. It doesn’t give a definitive date yet, but it does round up all of the latest rumours. Now, let’s take a look at the Diablo Immortal classes that have been confirmed so far.
Diablo Immortal classes: which can you play as?
Your favourite massive melee fighter makes an appearance in Diablo Mortal in all its gory glory.
|Hammer of the Ancients||Ancient Spear||Whirlwind|
|Calls forth a massive hammer to smash enemies in front of you||Throws a spear that damages and pierces enemies||Spin your blades out, dealing massive damage to nearby enemies|
Wielding its deadly flail and holy magic, the Crusader walks confidently into battle in a massive suit of armour.
With their dual crossbows, Demon Hunters take the fight to the hellish hordes.
|Rain of Vengeance||Daring Swing||Knockback Shot|
|Showers an area with arrows from the sky for several seconds, dealing continuous damage||Swing on a rope to nearby location, damaging enemies on the way while they cannot attack you||Fires a magical bolt of energy that deals damage and knocks back enemies|
These sacred warriors channel the power of their 1,001 gods.
|Dashing Strike||Cyclone Strike||Seven-Sided Strike|
|Dashes forward, moving through and striking any enemies on your path||A spinning attack that pulls nearby enemies towards you, followed by a furious blast of energy||Dashes rapidly between nearby enemies, dealing damage over seven strikes|
Wielding death as a weapon itself, the Necromancer summons the dead to fight for them.
The elements are firmly under the wizard’s command, who can freeze and burn her enemies and teleport out of danger.
|Summons an immense Meteor that plummets from the sky, crashing into enemies dealing massive damage||Teleports through the ether to a selected location||Create a wave of electrical energy, bathing enemies in destructive lightning|
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.
Looking at Lord of Destruction, both of the expansion classes could make it into Immortals. The Assassin and Druid, focusing on stealth and nature magic respectively, are quite unique when compared to the others.
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 shortly after launch.
Lastly, we want to make a point regarding Diablo IV. So far, the Barbarian, Sorceress, and Druid are confirmed, which is interesting, as the latter two didn’t appear in Diablo III. As a result, it wouldn’t hugely surprise us if they arrive in Diablo Immortals too.
