Diablo 4 launched a week ago, but we already have some solid hints about a potential future sixth class circulating in the community!

All the speculations have one in common; the new class will most likely be a shield-baring Holy Warrior.

The first and most solid one comes from Displate Art from 6 months ago called Heroes which depicts all 5 Diablo 4 classes and an unknown angelic figure.

Reddit user Angzt has conducted some extensive research and tracked down the author of the artwork Igor Sidorenko who is a Senior Artist on Diablo 4 and created an art piece called Inarius”.

None of the angels have faces in the artwork.

The above artwork exists in an extended version called “The Birth of the Nephalem” that’s available for purchase in the Gear Store. However, the “Heroes” artwork with the mysterious holy character has no other variations.

The conclusion of the research is the artwork may have been posted too early. We include the whole post from Reddit below.

Another interesting theory by Thunderclaww sources the Book of Lorath that mentions the first Blood Knight. We’re again dealing with a holy character here.

You can find the page mentioning Blood Knight below.

All in all, the most common conclusion is the “Heroes” artwork includes all five available classes and this mysterious sixth Holy figure.
