Which Class Should You Play In Diablo 4?
Each class will depend on what you like to do and how you like to play.
Here’s a breakdown on each class and why you should pick them.
Necromancer is a flexible hybrid class, allowing you to play both ranged and melee depending on your preference.
The Necromancer class lets you summon undead minions for assistance, meaning you have access to a large number of strategies.
It has good self-healing, through abilities like bone prison, and good AOE damage, from spells like Corpse Explosion and Bone Storm.
With such versatility, it makes this class a good choice for players of all skill levels and experience.
The Sorcerer class is a fantastic option for those that like to pump out as much damage as they can by slinging spells.
With the Enchantment system, you can choose to power up your spells to suit your style and preference.
You can use spells offensively, such as ‘Fireball’ and ‘Chain Lightning’, or defensively, such as ‘Teleport’.
If you have experience with these games, enjoy mana management mechanics and feel you can keep a small health bar topped up, the Sorcerer is a good choice for you.
Rogue features a unique playstyle, allowing you to draw from three resources, giving you multiple fast and hard-hitting playstyles.
With this class, you certainly require more knowledge of the game and shines best on those who have more skill as you’ll need to be smart about your positioning and keep an eye on your resources and energy.
If done correctly, abilities like ‘Rapid Fire’ and ‘Flurry’ can be devastating to enemies. Equally, abilities like ‘Smoke Screen’ are great ways to keep yourself alive.
If you fancy yourself as a sharpshooter who can multi-task and manage your resources, the Rogue is your best choice.
As a Druid, you have the power to shapeshift, allowing you to deal distinct and devastating damage to enemies.
Druids generate ‘Spirit’ as they play, which will allow them to unleash powerful attacks such as ‘Pulverize’ and ‘Tornado’.
Defensively, you can use ‘Cyclone Armour’ and ‘Trample’ to benefit from stuns and add protection.
The Druid offers flexibility to choose from melee fighting or using the power of nature to wipe out enemies from afar.
It’s a good option for those who are undecided, early on, with how they want to play but require a bit more knowledge of the game and an ability to adapt to the game.
The Barbarian specialises in melee attacks, striking with massive damage on single-target enemies.
This class possesses a unique arsenal system that you can equip a variety of buffs from distinct weapons (you’re rewarded for using different weapons as it improves your overall power.
One of the more valuable resources of the Barbarian is ‘Fury’, which is used for powerful abilities like ‘Whirlwind’ and ‘Upheaval’, when attacking, and ‘Rallying Cry’ and ‘Undying Rage’, when on defence.
Building requires you to go quite tanky to prosper, but it’s one of the more action-packed classes; so if you enjoy providing a distraction so your team can shine, this is a good class for you.
