All classes in Diablo 4

There are five classes in Diablo 4 Season 4, each with their own ability kit and playstyle. So, here’s a quick guide that will help you figure out which is the best class for you.

With Diablo 4 Season 4 finally here, you will be presented with the option to create a brand new Seasonal character once again. Each class has a unique set of skills and can wield different types of weapons.

Here’s a list of all classes and which is the best class in Diablo 4, as well as a breakdown of their playstyles.

All classes in Diablo 4

The five classes in Diablo 4 are as follows:

  • Barbarian
  • Rogue
  • Sorcerer
  • Druid
  • Necromancer

All classes in Diablo 4 explained


Simply put, the Barbarian class in Diablo 4 has high damage, moderate mobility, and high defense. To balance this out, this class relies a lot on Fury and the abilities have long cooldowns.

Beginners who don’t want to jump into complex mechanics right away can also benefit from the Barbarian’s straightforward gameplay.

In Diablo 4 Season 4, the class has been nerfed a bit, but that isn’t likely to stop the Barbarians from dealing high damage to the bosses, especially during the endgame stages.

The Rogue class in Diablo 4 is as versatile as it gets. These warriors can deal melee as well as ranged damage and you can consistently switch between these attack types. At the same time, Rogue characters aren’t tanky and you’ll have to master dodging attacks.

While playing Rogue, you’ll also access class specialization mechanics. You can generate combo points through basic skills and deal more damage through advanced skills. Moreover, Rogue’s inner sight ability marks enemies and upon killing them, you get unlimited energy for 4 seconds.

Despite being a powerful class, the Rogue has a high learning curve, so it’s advised that you don’t start with this class if you’re not accustomed to some of the common mechanics in the game.

The Sorcerer

The Sorcerer in Diablo 4 is a master of elements that deals high AoE damage without breaking a sweat. The mobility is decent but you must get used to the low defense.

The Sorcerer can enchant skill slots in Diablo 4 and tweak their effects for valuable buffs. Although you cannot enchant Ultimate Skills, the flexible customization of other skills is still impressive.

This class has remained pretty standard from the very beginning of the game and is a good place for everyone to start out, even in the new season.

Druid is a class of shapeshifters in Diablo 4. You can turn into a ferocious Wearbear and get a major attack and defense boost with Druid’s Spirit Skills.

This class also boasts Companion Skills that help in spawning wolves, ravens, or vines. Wolves increase critical damage rate, ravens make the enemies vulnerable, and vines will poison the enemies.

The Druid class is as tanky as they get and they can deal a good amount of damage too. But to get to max damage output, you will have to make your way to the endgame stages. A lot of skill synergy is required for you to make the most out of Druids in Diablo 4.

With Necromancer, you can summon an army of the undead comprising skeletons, skeletal mages, and golems. The class’s unique specialization mechanics let you change this army’s composition too. On top of that, there’s the ability to either sacrifice your army and gain personal buffs or use crowd control.

In Diablo 4 Season 4, Minion builds have finally received a much-needed buff, and are expected to dominate the endgame.

Best class for you in Diablo 4 Season 4

While the Barbarian is a good starting point for you in Diablo 4, their innate 10% damage reduction has been removed, so that might affect your survivability.

Alternatively, you could also start out with the Necromancer, because it’s a relatively easier class to play. Especially with the Minion buffs in Season 4, many beginners and veterans will be playing the Necromancer class, so it’s worth a go.

The Druid could also be regarded as a wonderful class for beginners because of how tanky it is, but since its leveling is tedious and boring, you might lose interest in it quickly. Moreover, the true potential of the Druid is revealed in the endgame stages in Diablo 4, so you’ll have to patiently wait and grind till you have all the necessary components for some of the best builds in the game.
