What Next Character Class for Diablo 4? Fans Speculate

The hype surrounding Diablo IV doesn't seem to be dying down. Gamers are creating theories related to possible new content that could be prepared by Blizzard.

It's been a week since the release of Diablo IV. Players are already exchanging insights and predictions about the upcoming changes and new content. Some of them are looking for a hidden message related to a new character class in the latest chapter in the history of Sanctuary.

Fresh clues are also provided by the discovery of dataminers, carefully searching the game's files.

Blood Knight as a new character class?

On the occasion of the release of Diablo IV, a book also hit the market, titled Diablo: Book of Lorath. This oficially canon publication describes the travels and experiences of Lorath Nahr - one of the members of the New Horadric Order. The reading is a good source of knowledge about the world presented in the game, and also serves as narrative support for the fourth installment of Blizzard's hit series.

Fans have taken notice of the story described in Book of Lorath, focusing on the brutal rise of a race of half-humans, half-vampires. According to some players, the reference suggests the imminent addition of Blood Knights to the pool of caracter classes available in the game..

The idea does not seem to be completely without merit. Last month we informed that Blood Knight is about to appear as a playable class in Diablo Immortal. It is therefore possible that the developer is planning a similar change in the latest major installment of the series as well.

Fifth level of world rank

Interesting discoveries were also shared by a dataminer by the handle DataMineARPG. According to the information provided by the Internet user, deep in the game's files there is a completely new difficulty level.

Until now, players interested in endgame gameplay in Diablo IV could choose from four levels of World Ranks, with the highest one - described as Anguish - posed a challenge for the most experienced.

Information gathered by DataMineARPG suggests the existence of a Level 5 World Rank. The game files contain an icon and text describing the new gameplay mode.

Curious Internet user, summarizing the information he collected, prepared a number of predictions related to the further development of Diablo IV. Among the novelties suggested by DataMineARPG were:

  • new types of crystals;
  • new effects of crystals;
  • the presence of seasonal equipment;
  • the division of the season into branches.

The next few weeks and new information from Blizzard Entertainment will probably show how much of these predictions and theories turned out to be correct.
