Blizzard already confirmed the Barbarian, Sorceress, and Druid classes for the Diablo 4 launch. Here are the classes that have the lowest likelihood to be included.
Blizzard has brought many timeless classics into the world and among those is the beloved Diablo franchise. The game has captivated gamers worldwide for over two decades and the fact that Diablo 4 is now in development makes fans curious about what this new installment will bring.
As far as classes go, Blizzard has confirmed the Barbarian, Sorceress, and Druid classes. Having two spellcaster classes and a melee class limits the potential classes that Blizzard may announce for BlizzCon 2021. Blizzard will most likely add another melee class as well as a dexterity-based class to complete the five launch classes for Diablo 4.
With that being said, here are the classes fans will least likely see on the game’s launch roster.
No Necromancer for Diablo 4
Since there are already two spellcasters announced for the game, it’s almost impossible for Blizzard to add more. Furthermore, if Blizzard plans to add another magic-based class, it’s more likely to happen in a DLC.
Because of this, the highly-demanded Necromancer class may have to take the back seat for a while. Also, the Necromancer class was part of the last game’s DLC making it even less likely to show up at the launch of the new game.
Everyone now knows that as far as Diablo lore goes, Heaven is now out of commission following its decimation. For this reason, classes like Crusaders and Paladins that get their powers from Heaven is less likely to appear in Diablo 4.
Since Diablo 3, fans are requesting Blizzard to add an Angel class to the game. At the very least, they also want a healer class added to the game. But given Heaven’s status, this is also unlikely to happen in the upcoming game. Fans could argue that the destruction of Heaven is the perfect opportunity to introduce an Angelic or even healer class. Many may find it a great idea to see an Angel fighting off demons in revenge for its realm.
But unlike every class in the Diablo franchise, Angels aren’t really mortal. And the game is really about humanity rising above demonic invasion. So an Angelic class will not fit this mold. As for healers, Diablo’s gameplay makes this class unnecessary for the game.
Rogue class, a thing of the past
The Rogue class was one of the original classes in the Diablo franchise. While there are a few that wants the class to return to the game, the probability for that is low. It is true that the Rogue class is based on dexterity. However, the fact is that there are more dex-based classes that are high in demand from fans.
Assassins, for example, are high in demand. Blizzard may want to prioritize adding this class instead of Rogues since it’s what the consumer wants more. Rogue fans would just have to take comfort in the fact that Assassins and Rogues are similar classes.
Diablo 4 will arrive on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One platforms.
