Blizzard Entertainment unveiled the Class Change Feature for Diablo Immortal which allows players to choose a new class and power up with level-ups, crafting items and more. The game is set to launch on December 28th.
The “Diablo Immortal best class” is a feature that was unveiled at BlizzCon 2018. The new class changes every month and the player can choose which one they want to play. Read more in detail here: diablo immortal best class.
You’ll change as you spend more time playing Diablo Immortal, smashing demons and gathering riches. That’s very understandable. The game revolves on customizing your appearance, playstyle, and even your class. We’ll go through two major methods to alter your character in this blog: cosmetics and the Change of class function.
First and foremost, we’re ecstatic to finally discuss about cosmetics—how they operate, how often new ones are released, and how to get your first one right now. (“We” are Joe Grubb, Principal Designer, and Hunter Schulz, Art Director.) Hi!)
Cosmetics allow you to drastically alter the look of your character without impacting their gear or attributes. Consider them to be a fresh visual you may use in place of your equipment.
Although each cosmetic set is accessible to all classes, cosmetics are gained per class. They change the design of your attire and weaponry, and some even contain bespoke animations. Here’s an example of how the same cosmetic set can make various classes seem different.
This is the Bloodsworn cosmetic set, which is based on the Countess of the Dark Wood’s minions.
Your character’s standard gear in Diablo Immortal is designed to match their body. There isn’t a suit of armor that can make your crusader larger or smaller, for example. Cosmetics allow us to break the norm and give your avatar an unusual, even extraterrestrial look. Here’s how the Ghosts of Ashwold cosmetic set changed the necromancer (and their gear).
The Ghosts of Ashwold cosmetic set is worn by a necromancer.
Every month, we aim to release a new cosmetic set for all classes that is themed with that month’s Battle Pass (Ghosts of Ashwold, above, is first). You may acquire that cosmetic for all classes if you purchase the Battle Pass for that month, and the Empowered Battle Pass will also contain special portal skins and picture frames.
Other cosmetics will be available in the Shop, some of which are directly related to the environment and narrative of Sanctuary, while others are more traditional theme changes, such as a set that has your character encased in ice crystals or clothed in Westmarch’s royal robes.
We also want to create place for some nice free cosmetics, some of which may be acquired by playing. As members of the Immortal faction increase their faction’s Dominance stat, they unlock their own distinctive cosmetic ensembles (which they may wear until they’re toppled, of course).
The Anointed Immortal cosmetic set features an Immortal faction wizard.
If you pre-register for Diablo Immortal, you’ll be able to help unlock the free Horadrim-themed Living Legacy cosmetic for everyone.
Crusader is a character featured in the Living Legacy cosmetic package.
Diablo Immortal may be pre-registered in one of the following ways:
- Visit the Diablo Immortal website and connect in using your Battle.net account by clicking the “NOW IS THE TIME TO PRE-REGISTER” option.
- Pre-register for Diablo Immortal by going to the Google Play or App Store and following the instructions.
Resonance and Legendary Gems
As you level up your Legendary Gems, their increasing strength will be mirrored on your gear. Every Legendary item in the game has its own distinct aesthetic progression that corresponds to the increasing Resonance of your gems. You’ll be able to acquire decorative wings at the greatest levels of your Resonance stat.
Resonance tweaked the concept for necromancer equipment.
Resonance tweaked the concept for barbarian equipment.
Resonance tweaked the crusader equipment concept.
Resonance tweaked the concept for demon hunter gear.

We want Diablo Immortal’s visual identity to adapt and expand over time, much like any live game. We also want you to be able to change the appearance of your character as you play rather than being trapped in one position. Many of these designs have inspired us, and we can’t wait to show off many more when Immortal releases.
NOW IS THE TIME TO PRE-REGISTER
Speaking of switching things up, Senior Systems Designer Kris Zierhut will take over this blog to discuss changing your class and avoiding the dreaded “alt-itis.”
Change of class
Character progression is incredibly important in Diablo Immortal. When you play games in the MMO genre, you’re focused on unlocking new abilities for your character and keeping up with other players on your server. However, Diablo games always feature a rich variety of classes with different playstyles and fantasies. This leads to a conflict: you want to play every class, but you don’t want to hinder your character’s progress to try them all. How can we let you do both? Our solution, arriving shortly after Diablo Immortal launches: Change of class.
You’ll be able to update your existing character’s class and aesthetic customisation in Westmarch. When you switch classes, you’ll keep all of your Paragon level advancement. You’ll get a new set of equipped equipment that are tailored to your new class, and you’ll be able to transfer all of your item progress and gems over to them. Your previous equipped equipment and stockpile will be preserved, as will your progress on Horadric Vessels and the Helliquary.
You will need to start collecting Legendary items specific to your new class, but that journey’s part of the fun of playing. And, if you regret the choice, you can activate the Change of class feature again, returning to your original class, or exploring other new classes you haven’t yet played. When you return to a class, you’ll revert to the visual customization you chose previously, and equip your previous Legendary items.
We didn’t want to force our players into the hard choice of giving up progress on their main character to support an alt. We also didn’t want anyone to feel obligated to keep a roster of alt characters to gather rewards and resources, or to match the shifting demands of Leaderboards, Cycle of Strife, or other competitive systems. Change of class gives you the freedom to explore classes that you get from multiple alts, but without any of those downsides. It also allows us to give full rewards to each new character you play, with no expectation you’ll share resources among them.
We want your original class selection to be a meaningful choice, so we’re discussing limits to this system that still give you freedom to try out something new. Because the process of collecting Legendary affixes is time-consuming, we expect players who focus on a single class will have some advantages, like a broader selection of available character builds. But the fun of freely exploring each class should tempt a lot of people into changing things up over time, like it has many of us on the team. Though Change of class won’t be in-game right when Diablo Immortal launches, we’re hoping to add it shortly thereafter in a patch.
Immortal is shaping up to be the most customized Diablo experience ever, but the diversity we’ll have at launch is just the beginning. We’re looking forward to welcoming you to Sanctuary!
