The Wizard is one of 6 playable classes in Diablo Immortal.

Description

Wizard Intro 1.png

"Wizards manipulate arcane forces to strike from a distance, disintegrating their enemies to oblivion, freezing them until their bodies shatter, or burning them into charred remains."[1]

Wizards are crafty and adept spellslingers that use the tremendous powers at their fingertips to inflict a myriad of destructive elemental powers on their foes. Their offensive blasts cover the entire spectrum of the elements - shocking the enemies in place, scorching the very flesh off of their bodies, and rendering them helpless and encased in ice. Wizards balance their outward devastation with protective powers that envelop their bodies in shields, pull the enemy hordes away, or simply teleport them away from harm.

Primary Attributes

Diablo Immortal has 5 Primary Attributes: Strength, Intelligence, Fortitude, Vitality, and Willpower. Every stat point gained in any of these attributes will increase your Offense and Defense Rating, so your character will always increase in power. The benefits of said attributes differ from class to class, and different attributes will be more desirable to chase depending on your chosen character.

These are the Primary Attributes and their effects, ranked based on attractiveness to the Wizard class:

  • Intelligence - This attribute increases the Wizard's damage and is of utmost importance across all of your gear.
  • Fortitude - This attribute increases the Armor and Armor Penetration Secondary Attributes, which are vitally important in endgame progression, where you need to go through the enemies' defenses first to inflict damage.
  • Vitality - This attribute increases your life points, which is your most basic form of mitigation and staving off death. While it is never a useless stat to obtain, investing beyond the point of tanking basic damage is also unnecessary, as Diablo Immortal lacks a Hardcore mode and cannot threaten you with permanent character loss.
  • Willpower - This attribute increases the Potency and Resistance Secondary Attributes, which increase the duration of harmful effects you inflict on enemies and reduces their duration on yourself, respectively. This attribute provides limited usefulness to Wizards since most of their spells are focused on inflicting direct damage instead.
  • Strength - This attribute only provides the basic one point of Offense and Defense Rating to Wizards, which other attributes also provide. Replace this attribute as soon as you can.

Skills

All classes can slot 1 Primary Attack and 4 Active Skills. Skills are unlocked gradually as you level up, and are leveled up automatically along with your progression. Primary Attacks can be used at any time and gradually build up the resource necessary to unleash the Ultimate ability, while Active Skills vary between cooldown- and charge-based abilities.

Skills are modified through Legendary Inscriptions which can enhance their duration, charges, range, power, and even change the purpose of the skill entirely. The Wizard has access to the following skills:
