Diablo IV Rogue Class Revealed At BlizzCon (VIDEO)
Blizzard finally seems to know what its player base cares about, with today’s opening presentation for BlizzCon 2021 featuring loads of exciting news from the Diablo franchise. One such highlight is the reveal of the Rogue class for Diablo IV, with Blizzard offering up a slick cinematic trailer infused with some high-skill gameplay moments for all those lustful DEX players out there.
As revealed during the opening day of BlizzCon 2021, the newly revealed Diablo IV class is none other than Rogue. The sneaky character class is able to swap between bows and dual swords during combat, and they are able to imbue both types of weapons with either frost or poison for some delicious AOE or single-target madness. As one would expect, the Rogue class is able to flip in and out of combat using high-mobility abilities. Check out the reveal trailer below:
Representing the fourth class announced for Diablo IV, Rogue essentially operates as a replacement for Diablo III’s Demon Hunter and Diablo II’s Assassin. As such, it comes to little surprise that the Rogue’s specialization options are Combo Points, Shadow Realm, and Exploit Weakness. Combo Points allows players to build up their Combo Points using basic attacks, and abilities will spend these built-up points to proc additional effects. Shadow Realm lets the Rogue pull enemies into the Shadow Realm where the Rogue becomes stealthed, unstoppable, and deals extra damage for a set period of time. Last but not least is Exploit Weakness, which provides the Rogue with opportunity attacks against marked enemies that deal critical strikes with increased damage.
Diablo IV is currently in development.
