Rogue is one of the stronger and, of course, more popular classes in Diablo 4.

From staying far away from enemies, to getting up close and personal, Rogues can dish out damage regardless of range if bolstered with proper endgame viable builds.

Endgame Rogue Builds in Diablo 4

Most popular Rogue builds are focused on melee skills. From the beginning of the official release early access period, Twisting Blades has been a best build contender out of all classes. Along with it is Flurry, another melee build, and Penetrating Shot for those that prefer ranged play.

  • Twisting Blades
  • Flurry
  • Penetrating Shot

Twisting Blades Build

While Twisting Blades was nerfed during the first couple weeks of release, it’s still extremely strong. This particular build focuses on CC and damage reduction since you’re often in the thick of battle.

Penetrating Shot Rogue Build in D4

Slower than the melee builds, Penetrating Shot focuses on dealing large amounts of piercing damage in a single attack that can span your entire screen. For those that enjoy quick attacks, like myself, this build may be too slow for you to enjoy playing.

These builds highlight the best of both melee and ranged Rogue skills. Whether you’re looking for a fast build where you take out your opponents quickly, or want to stay as far away from mobs as possible while still killing them, the Rogue is the class for you.
