There is also the Paragon level and equipment to consider. During the Beta, players played a lot Immortal Diablo, which is one of the reasons the title is coming to PC, and Blizzard doesn’t sell experience upgrades or ways to get more gear, which is an important part of your character progression.

Blizzard will offer as many choices as possible and will continue to do their utmost on this side. (We remind you that only the subtitles and the interface will be available in European languages).

Platforms

  • Immortal Diablo and the the biggest launch of the Diablo franchise and every element of the world of Sanctuary is studied very seriously. NetEase has experience in mobile gaming and this partnership is beneficial to the team.
  • Deposit Immortal Diabloit was also necessary to understand the habits of mobile gamers, the sessions did not not the same only on PC. You can play for 3 minutes or 30 minutes, no problem. The First and Rifts are designed to be played in under 5 minutes. If you want a longer experience, the Dungeon will meet your expectations, closer to 10 minutes, and 8-player raids take longer. There is also the PvP battlefield, etc. Blizzard Offers different activities to players, some of which can be completed in a short time, others in a longer time, and these cater to the types of sessions players expect, which is important for a mobile game.

Class change

  • A class change function will be available after launch. According to the team, this is the best solution for gamers. Immortal Diablo it features infinite progression, it’s not the kind of game where you have a lot of secondary characters and divide your time between them. Here you will invest in a character, you will be known as that character, you will make him very powerful. If after a while you decide that you don’t like the class you are playing, you will change it and bring all your progress, be it your legendary gems, your gear, its rank, the Paragon, to the new class you want. . For Blizzard, it’s a best experience than having five or six characters each with their own progressions.
  • Blizzard does not yet know how often the class change feature will be available. Probably something between a week and a month. This will be free. If you don’t like the class you are playing, you will have the opportunity to embody a new one.

Everything you can expect from a Diablo game is there, and even more than what you have seen previously. Westmarch allows many players to be present at the same time, the title offers new intuitive controls, etc.
  • For melee players, there are Monk, Crusader, and Barbarian. For ranged players, there is the Demon Hunter, the Witch and the Necromancer. The Witch is more focused on combos, the Demon Hunter is more focused on physics, and the Necromancer if you like the company of skeletons. On the Melee side, the Crusader is arguably the toughest, the Barbarian is the most beastly, and the Monk has some skills to manipulate the battlefield. Each class can be played both simply and in a sense more advanced. These have 14 skills and you only have 5 available at any one time. If you want an easy-to-use build, pick a class with those skills, along with some legendaries along the same line. Same answer for more advanced builds.
  • Wyatt will play a Monk, having played a Witch, a Barbarian and a Crusader during the Beta, and a Demon Slayer and a Witch internally. Peiwen will also play Monk.
