Let's find out whether Blood Knight is coming to Diablo 4!

The answer to this question is not as simple as you might think. Yes, Blood Knight was announced only for Diablo Immortal and there is no information about the release of this class in Diablo 4. However, this does not mean that this character will not make its appearance in the game. Blood Knight could be added as a sixth or even seventh character in the Diablo 4 roster.

What are our chances of getting Blood Knight for Diablo 4?

Currently, there are five classes in Diablo 4 and each of them is iconic. The game allows you to play as Barbarian, Druid, Necromancer, Rogue, and Sorcerer. All of these classes are from previous Diablo games, and overall, the roster looks decent.

However, Diablo veterans will likely notice that someone is missing. There is no user of holy powers. Paladins are one of the basic classes, and it feels weird that a Diablo game does not allow you to play this brave knight who uses the power of light to smite demons.

So, it’s hard to predict what class we will get next in Diablo 4. It could be Blood Knight, Paladin, or someone else. However, it’s worth noting that Diablo 3 received two classes as DLCs. So, perhaps we will get both Paladin and Blood Knight.

Who is Blood Knight in Diablo Immortal and what can this class do?

Blood Knight is a melee character that may remind you of Necromancer and Druid. This class uses the power of blood and shadow to perform deadly strikes. It seems that as a Blood Knight, you will be able to regenerate your HP by spilling the blood of your enemies.


Blood Knight’s primary weapon is a spear that gives its wielder impressive range. Combined with blood and shadow magic, it makes this character quite powerful. However, there is one more interesting ability and it makes Blood Knight truly terrifying.

The character is able to transform into some kind of blood demon. This creature looks like a big humanoid with claws, fangs, and horns. The transformation is temporary and you get a completely different moveset when you turn into this cursed creature. So, it looks like Druid’s shapeshifting but has a different function.

Overall, Blood Knight looks great and it would be nice to get such a cool character in Diablo 4. Blood magic is nothing new to the Diablo franchise, and this class fits perfectly into that universe.
