If the Spiritborn class is indeed real, then it will be released with Diablo 4's first expansion, rumored to be called Lord of Hatred, featuring Mephisto as the main villain. While the leaked information does make sense, consider this a rumor and speculation until otherwise proven.

With that in mind, Diablo 4 will have annual expansions, and the game released on 5 June 2023, a Monday in the US and Tuesday for those in Europe.

Update: It has been confirmed that Diablo 4's Vessel of Hatred expansion will release in "late 2024." at which point we will also be able to play the new Spiritborn class. Check out the trailer below.

Blizzard's Diablo franchise manager, Rod Fergusson, confirmed at the launch of Diablo 4 that the game would have annual expansions, stating: 


When you look at the launch of the game and this first season, we see that as building a foundation on which we can build for the future. So, as we look at our quarterly seasons, and we look at our annual expansions, those are the things that we’re really focused on for our live service.

A Technical Alpha build for Diablo 4 version 2.0 was recently spotted in a private testing branch.

Diablo 4 Spiritborn Release Date Countdown

Based on our speculation in this article, we've added a countdown timer for the possible release date of the Spiritborn class with the Diablo 4 Vessel of Hatred expansion.

Diablo 4 Spiritborn Class Gameplay Details Leaked

It is rumored that the Spiritborn class in Diablo 4 will use Glaives as their unique weapons, much like the Necromancer has scyphs. Apparently, the Spiritborn class will use two resources, a first for a Diablo character in the form of Vigor and Allegiance. 

Please note: The information about the Diablo 4 Spiritborn class gameplay comes from an unverified leak. Please take the details below with a large helping of salt until such time as Blizzard officially reveals the new Diablo 4 class.

Below, you will find the rumored Diablo 4 Spiritborn information as per a very detailed leak.

The release of the Spiritborn class opens up a whole new way to experience Diablo 4. Their unique abilities and playstyle offer fresh strategies for tackling Nahantu's challenges. Whether you're navigating through the Restless Canopy or battling in the depths of Kurast Sewers, playing as a Spiritborn in Nahantu promises an adventure like no other.

The Spiritborn, a class deeply rooted in the elements of nature and the spiritual realm. They are the children of the wild, born from the spirit of the plains, sky, soil, and forest. Their souls are intertwined with the world around them, drawing strength from the very essence of life and nature.

Their weapon of choice is the glaive, a symbol of their connection to both the physical and spiritual realms. The glaive is more than just a weapon to a Spiritborn; it is an extension of their spirit, a conduit through which they channel their power.

The Spiritborn's power comes from two resources: Vigor and Allegiance. Vigor represents their physical vitality and endurance, gained from their bond with the earth and sky. It fuels their physical abilities and allows them to perform feats of agility and strength beyond normal capabilities.

Allegiance, on the other hand, represents their spiritual connection to nature and its creatures. It is through Allegiance that they can call upon the spirits of nature for aid, summoning ethereal allies or invoking powerful elemental spells.

The Spiritborn are not merely fighters; they are guardians of balance. They stand on the boundary between the physical world and the spiritual realm, ensuring harmony between the two. Their mission is not just to defeat their enemies but to preserve the natural order of things.

In battle, a Spiritborn is a sight to behold. They move with the grace of the wind, their glaives dancing like leaves in a storm. Their attacks are fluid and relentless, like a river carving its path through stone. And when they call upon their spiritual powers, the air around them crackles with raw elemental energy.

Whether you're drawn to their unique blend of physical prowess and spiritual power or their noble mission to preserve balance in the world, playing as a Spiritborn offers a truly unique experience in Sanctuary.

Well, that's a whole lot of info to digest. While the leak does seem believable, and the details are quite intriguing, please remember this is not official information and could be completely fabricated by the leakers. 

As more information becomes available, we will update this page, so stay tuned for more details on the Spiritborn class in Diablo 4's first expansion, Vessel of Hatred.
