The Wizard Character Class debuted in Diablo 3 (2012) and replaced the Sorceress from Diablo II (2000). While the Wizards mastered many of the Element based spells as well, their skills are mainly Arcane related.

The Wizards in Diablo III are very confident in their skills and can sound very arrogant sometimes. They were first revealed at the Blizzcon in 2008 as the third of the character classes that would appear in Diablo III. A female Wizard by the name Li-Ming joined the MMO Heroes of the Storm in 2016 as a playable character.

The official Description of the Wizards:

“Wizards are renegade spellcasters who use their bodies as vessels for arcane energy, forsaking the more careful path favored by other magic users. They manipulate all manner of forces to disintegrate, burn, and freeze their foes, and they can control time and light to teleport, create powerful illusions, and deflect oncoming attacks.

Wizards grip wands and staves to focus their less potent magics, blasting at their enemies while gathering the energy or time necessary to destroy them in a dazzling hail of arcane might.

With few exceptions, wizard attacks are conducted at a distance, away from danger. As living artillery, wizards are well suited to relying on long-range destructive power. “
