The method used by Blizzard to specify your character's characteristics in Diablo 4 is a blend of the studio's approach to Diablo 2 and Diablo 3. The executive producer and director of the Diablo franchise Rod Fergusson put it, "Diablo 2 felt like you had to lock yourself into the game; you were able to change your character one time per difficulty. In D3, you sort of changed your look like you were changing your clothes. Everything was gear-based as opposed to skill-based."Fergusson added Diablo IV Gold[/url], "I think the fact that we have skills on the equipment [in Diablo 4] is really nice for experimentation -- as a sorceress I [might] get Blizzard [on a pair of boots] three levels before I should and I can try Blizzard to see if I actually want it."
Game designer Joe Shely told Polygon in an interview at a roundtable in a roundtable interview that "having your character appear to be an amalgamation of decisions you made leads to really fascinating decisions, or interesting opportunities."Shely stated she believes that the Diablo staff is cognizant that game players especially at the beginning of their journey, will not know the full extent of the character's set of abilities.

Simply click to stop spending a point and put it towards another thing However, as you get later into levels that cost will increase to make decisions a bit more thought-provoking. Of course, you could also change the whole tree at once if you need to start from scratch. beginning."
Fergusson stated that as players go deeper and deeper into their character "the costs of in-game currency for respect becomes higher and higher -- eventually you'll get to the point where you have a level 90 Barbarian and instead of completely changing my build , it's more beneficial to just roll a new Barbarian and start all over buy Diablo 4 Gold"
