For other meanings of the term, see Blood Knight.
"The Blood Knight is a mid-range Class with hybrid attack options that are either melee or ranged depending on your proximity to the target. This vanquisher of vampires feeds on enemies’ life, entraps them in deadly shadows summoned with cursed strength, and relies on their trusty polearm to maintain distance from danger. And if all else fails, they may just succumb to the unholy abomination within themselves that’s vying for control of their humanity."

Blood Knight Class

A Blood Knight

The Blood Knight is a new class in the Diablo franchise, introduced in Diablo Immortal.

Gameplay[]

The Blood Knight is a melee/mid range class, with various skills having different effects depending on the player's proximity to the monster. They combine their mastery of the polearm with supernatural strength and vampiric powers to overwhelm the demonic foot soldiers of the Burning Hells.[1]

Post-release, all cosmetic sets will include Blood Knight options. Retroactively, a number of cosmetic sets were given Blood Knight equivalents, namely Anointed Immortal, Blood Rebirth, Bronze Wardens, Children of Inarius, Exalted Immortal, Hatred's Heritage, Inferno Within, and Scions of the Storm.[2]

Development[]

After the release of Immortal and its six classes (all of which had debuted in previous games), the developers wanted to create a new class. They wanted to do a "supernatural" class that would be kind of monstrous, comitting acts that not even classes like the Necromancer and Demon Hunter would carry out.[3]

For release, 2000 lines of dialogue were written for the Blood Knight. The voice actors for the male and female versions are Ben Prendergast and Abby Trot respectively. The lines were written with context in mind; for instance, the Blood Knight has some "choice lines" in regards to the Countess, given their shared blood motif.[3]
