Can you change class in Diablo 4?

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to change class in Diablo 4. Once you choose a class for your character, it is permanent and cannot be changed. This may be very disappointing to fans of Diablo Immortal, where you could change the class.

As in most previous games of the series, the only way to play as a different class will be to create a new character. Fortunately, levelling up should not pose as big of a problem as in the previous Diablo games.

There are new mechanics introduced to the game that allow you to gain bonuses shared amongst all the characters on your account. Those are the bonus stats that you get from Altars of Lilith and Renown rewards, including XP.

That's it for our look at how to change class in Diablo 4! Once you're done here, feel free to check out our other Diablo 4 guides, such as how to make gold fast and how to swap and assign weapons to skills.
