Kharazim, the Veradani Monk, is a melee support hero from the Diablo universe. To the monks of Ivgorod, the gods are in all things, and their divine will is proclaimed by the Patriarchs. With unshakable faith, Kharazim carries forth the decrees of the thousand and one gods to the ends of Sanctuary and the realms beyond.
Kharazim is a versatile support that can be either a healer or a fighter depending where the need is greatest. He can select Transcendence to heal allies through melee combat, Iron Fists to gain bonus attack damage, or Insight to restore mana and find a balance between both offensive and defensive roles.
Background[edit | edit source]This section concerns content exclusive to Diablo universe.
In the monasteries of Ivgorod, there are champions whose skill knows no equal, who hone their bodies and minds to perfection: The monks of the Sahptev faith. Servants to the 1001 gods, these holy warriors are pure in spirit as well as body, and capable of supporting any allies they may find in their mission to carry out the will of the Patriarchs.
With unshakable faith, Kharazim followed the decree of the Patriarchs and set out to discover the heavenly fire that had fallen upon on the town of New Tristram.
