The Barbarian, with its Arsenal System, utilizes an array of weapons that are integrated into skills.
With skills that command the earth and animals, the Druid is one of Diablo 4's most versatile classes.
The Necromancer channels undead minions, blood, bone, and Shadow magic. Its skills revolve around death.
Arrows, deception, speed, and traps factor heavily into the Rogue's toolbelt of skills that allow it to battle covertly.
Wielding elemental magic, the Sorcerer's skills targets enemies using cold, fire, and lightning.
Each class has a different Skill Tree, which is comprised of clustered Skill, Upgrade, and Passive nodes.
Like past Diablo games, many of D4's most powerful and ingenious builds will come from theorycrafting.
More skills and upgrades than ever
Skill trees in Diablo 4 are literal trees. Players are given two skill points per level to invest in the tree. As the player selects skills and upgrades in the tree's branches, they'll unlock passive points, which can be used on passive bonuses in the tree's root system. Some skills can become even more powerful if primary stat thresholds are met (e.g., if the player's Strength exceeds 250).
