Diablo Immortal Best Class Tier List
Diablo Immortal is the newest entry in Blizzard's long-running ARPG franchise. While its announcement back in 2018 was met with largely negative reception, it has come quite a long way in ensuring that it meets the standards of the series, so genre enthusiasts should find some fun in discovering everything it has to offer.
Though this fresh outing is available on mobile devices, that doesn't mean the game has cut corners with its roster of classes. Instead, it features many fan favorites, so whether you're looking to keep foes at a distance with the Demon Hunter or take them all on face-first with the Barbarian, there's something for everyone here.
Despite the fact that each of Diablo Immortal's classes is powerful enough to take on everything the game has to offer, it's important to remember that some classes are better suited to newer players, while others will require significantly more time and skill to master. Picking the one that is suited to your playstyle and skill level is imperative before setting off into Sanctuary.
Your mileage is likely to vary, as there is no right or wrong way to play the game, but for the sake of helping you decide what might work best for you, here is every class in Diablo Immortal ranked.
#6 - Wizard
The Wizard is a glass cannon, so it can dish out exceptional damage--especially to groups of enemies--but it can't take many hits. This means that mastering this magic user will require extreme attention to positioning so as to avoid taking any damage, especially in the later sections of the game.
In order to make the most of the Wizard, you'll want to build it around AOE damage and crowd control so that you can keep your distance from your enemies. Sadly, finding yourself out of mana or in bad positions can result in a quick and painful death, which can be detrimental to your team in cooperative play. In other words, though the damage output can be substantial, the amount of effort required to effectively play this class makes it a poor choice for beginners.
#5 - Monk
The Monk is often best suited for team play, as it possesses a variety of useful boons that can increase the effectiveness of your party. That doesn't mean it's a terrible solo pick, but you may find that your damage output lags a bit behind that of most other classes.
Granted, you can certainly deal some decent damage with the Monk's unique combo mechanics, but you'll get the most bang for your buck with this class by teaming up with friends and using your abilities in ways that complement their strengths.
#4 - Necromancer
The Necromancer is a force to be reckoned with--when you are able to operate at your fullest potential. This class takes some time and effort to learn to play well, as you'll need to manage a collection of undead summons that will fight and tank enemies for you.
The biggest downside to the Necromancer is that summoning skeletons and golems requires nearby corpses, meaning that this class has a brief but notable build-up time. However, in this game, you also have a selection of defensive abilities that improve your personal survivability by quite a bit, too.
#3 - Crusader
When it comes to tanking and crowd control, there isn't a better option than the Crusader. This hearty protector can stand in the midst of groups of enemies and take quite the beating while dishing out some decent damage in return, while its Draw and Quarter ability allows you to mount a horse and navigate around the battlefield much more quickly than other classes.
The biggest downside to playing a Crusader is that you may find that your single-target damage is quite weak. This makes facing off against bosses a much slower experience than you may prefer--but at least you can take plenty of damage in the process.
#2 - Demon Hunter
The Demon Hunter is the best ranged class in the game for those who want a high-damage character that can rip through packs of enemies and bosses with ease. Making the most of this class requires a bit of situational awareness and positioning prowess, but things die so quickly, that you won't be staying in one place too long anyways.
As a matter of fact, due to its focus on damage over utility, this class is also probably the best for solo players looking to make quick work of the game without messing with co-op. With the right build, you're likely to find yourself clearing high-end content faster than any other class.
#1 - Barbarian
The Barbarian is by far the most straightforward and accessible class for most beginners to pick up. This beastly class dishes out an outrageous amount of damage while soaking up plenty in return, making it the most powerful class in the game when facing off against packs of foes.
But just because the Barbarian is easy to pick up doesn't mean it's a braindead class. Using it effectively means keeping an eye on your health, as you'll be on the frontlines at all times. Luckily, your extreme AOE damage and ability to withstand so many hits will help give you some breathing room--at least until you get much deeper into the game.
