Diablo IV continues to generate great interest among the franchise community, especially after the good taste left by the recent beta tests of the game. This is why many players are already beginning to internalize the new installment of Diablo, taking into account aspects such as the reset of the characters’ abilities, which has always been a topic among the fandom since with this, it changes Totally building the character.
Especially since during the previous installments of the game this was something different for the fans, being difficult in Diablo 2, but in the third installment much more passable since the developers eliminated the respect costs and also the skill trees and for Diablo 4, it’s choosing to have a middle ground between them.

This is what the main class designer, Adam Jackson, refers to, who told during a round table with the press (via Polygon), that: “we have to balance this idea that we want players to commit to a fantasy and a character and have real weight and meaning in their choices, but we also want them to feel free to customize their characters and explore and try different builds, fantasies, and ways to play.”
Because of this, he stated that generally speaking and at the beginning of the game, changing your character’s specialization is “very, very cheap, to the point where it’s practically free”, but that later, as you get further into the end of the game, Diablo 4, it gets a lot more expensive.
“If you can’t change your character every time, that means you’re really committed to your fantasy, and you’re rewarded for thinking about your build and planning for it,” Jackson noted.
In addition, the developer said that because of this, “every time you restart the game, you are actually motivated to play it again and try this completely different new way of playing and there are many good rewards there”, but that this brings the disadvantage that “You know, you are very afraid to build.”
