Diablo: Immortal players can now switch classes once a week, thanks to Blizzard’s latest update.
Announced in a blog post, an update arriving today, July 20, will add the class change mechanic, allowing mages to become barbarians, necromancers to become monks, and so on.
Players must be level 35 before being given the option to change classes (which can be done at the Brazier of Shifting Flames in Westmarch), but they can do so as often as they like, with one change allowed every seven days.
Doing so will also be free indefinitely, as Blizzard said it has no plans to charge players for changing classes once a week or more often. Players can also choose to immediately revert to their previous class if they change their minds or trigger the change by mistake, but this can only be done once.
Players can also change their character’s appearance and reset their Paragon skill trees when they switch to each class for the first time. The player will also be given provisional gear equivalent to what was previously equipped.
Class-specific cosmetics and gear will carry over to the player’s inventory when they change and will be reusable if they return to that previous class. Non-class-related progression systems will not be affected, meaning all affiliations to clans, warbands, and other social groups will carry over to the new class.
The update also adds the final content of the Hero’s Journey, Gorgothra the Reclaimer as Helliquary’s new boss, the Adventurer’s Path and Hunger Moon limited-time events, the Amber Blades cosmetic set, and several new features. Minor updates and fixes.
