Diablo Immortal Tempest Origin quest & Dungeon

Along with the Tempest class, Diablo Immortal introduced the Tempest questline with the Tempest Trial Dungeon and the Deluged Plane. This Origin quest and Dungeon will help players better understand the new class, and have a chance of understanding how to handle them during their run.

In the Tempest Trial Dungeon, players can select from three pre-set builds to enter a trial Dungeon. These builds will help them better understand the class dynamics and skill combos.

The Deluged Plane is a special edition of the Fractured Plane where players can experiment and tinker with the different playstyles of the Tempest before fully committing to a Class Change. Wining in the Deluged Plane will let players earn a Tempest cosmetic and Legendary Gear.

How to unlock Tempest class in Diablo Immortal

The Tempest class in Diablo Immortal will be part of a free update, along with the new quests specific to these characters.

If you want to give the Tempest class a go after it’s released, you’ll be able to head to Selynne’s Basilica in Westmarch with any character you’d like to reset. Then you’ll need to head to The Shifting Flames to check Tempest’s full abilities before making the change.

Diablo Immortal Tempest class lore

According to Diablo Immortal’s trailer for the Tempest class, they are comprised of warrior priests from the Cold Isles, a region to the north of Sanctuary’s western continent. They are masters of wind and water who specialize in fighting with “elemental fury” with their dual-wield swords and dagger.

Here’s how Blizzard describes Diablo Immortal’s latest class:

Uncontrolled power is the doom of the soul; power gripped tight the doom of the world. This mantra guides the mist-clad bladedancers of the Cold Isles, the Tempests, on every voyage. It has also led a handful of them to flee their ancestral home for the first time in millennia.

The Cold Isles rest far to the north, beyond Ivgorod. In these harsh lands, its people have subsisted for thousands of years. Legends hold that their great empire of Pelghain—a thalassocracy born of seafaring and trade that reached as far as Xiansai—was ruined by violence between their rulers, sister priest-empresses with the power to command oceans and wind. The battle roiled sea and sky, drowned their mainland cities, and left only their island capital standing, beset by permanent deluges and hurricanes, and surrounded by Maarozhi, beasts of the deep.

A once-proud people now cling to the vestiges of their empire, relying on their bladedancers to endure the weather and enemies that haunt them. Tempests train in the art of fighting upon the waves and sail as far south as Arreat to hunt the beasts that ravage their shores.

Other than imperial ruins, the largest relics of Pelghain’s rule are the mists of the Spiral, a winding network of snowy fjords. The people of the Isles believe these mists are the dying breath of their empress Mehrwen. They send the purest and bravest among the Tempests on dangerous voyages to breathe in the mists, hear the whispering voices of an earlier age, and grow in knowledge and power to command sea and sky as the empresses did.

Those Tempests who are purest of heart and will drink the mists in daily, ultimately trading their material thoughts and bodies for greater power over wave and wind. But storms have battered Pelghain for centuries, and more Tempests are needed to curb them each year. With every beast the Tempests slay, two more lurk below. The sages, councilors and mystic Unmoored who control Pelghain’s future are unwilling to abandon the land occupying its ruin.

Occasionally, Tempests who voyage widely—who see a bigger world, just as embattled as their homeland—reject their society and refuse to give up their humanity to the mists. They claim their perspective is greater than that of the mist-addled Unmoored, and lament their strongest wasting their lives; delaying the inevitable, never stopping it. Some believe their home will be doomed forever, while others seek a way to save the lands beyond. All are exiled, made pariahs to deter others from following their example.

Today, a small number of these wandering Tempests voyage to the mainland to confront its evils. They cut down demons with sweeping twin edges and command water and sky to preserve any lives they can. But when they speak, it is always as exiles—with the chill of the wind and the voices of centuries gone. If their home is doomed despite all their people have sacrificed, what will it cost them to save Sanctuary?”

That’s everything known so far about Diablo Immortal’s new Tempest class. We’ll keep you updated as soon as Blizzard release more information about the new addition.
