Diablo Immortal Best Classes Tier List

Use our Diablo Immortal best classes tier list to pinpoint the best character to pick.

There are seven classes in Diablo Immortal: three melee and three ranged. Each has a number of useful skills and abilities, but not all of them are equal in PvE and PvP. Some are more suited to one mode or the other. Our best classes tier list ranks them all from best to worst, ranging from S-Tier to B-Tier, so you can focus on the ones that will help you make the most of your time, from the preeminent farming choices to those with AoEs capable of handling multiple mob swarms at once.

Diablo Immortal Best Classes Tier List

S-Tier

Monk

  • Type: Melee.
  • Attribute: Strength.

Monk has become one of the most important and powerful options in Diablo Immortal, putting it right at the top of our best classes tier list. It’s currently the best choice for farming Raids and Dungeons. This class is extremely fast, and you can do so much, much faster than with any other class in the game. Monk is also highly effective in PvP, but you do need to pay attention to your armor and resistance levels. Neglecting them could put you in a world of hurt.

On the other hand, Monk is a physical support character and, by definition, isn’t a very good choice for solo PvE. Although the class has lots of useful support skills and low cooldowns, its Fists of Thunder skill is quite good in combination with teleportation. With the help of Shield of Zen, you can protect both yourself and one of your allies from damage, which also protects from various control spells. 

Necromancer

  • Type: Ranged.
  • Attribute: Intelligence.

Necromancer has many advantages: it can summon pets and use various buffs and debuffs. It’s a perfect class for beginner players, as well, since it’s very easy to learn. All of its attacks, whether they’re targeted or AoE, such as Soulfire and Bone Spear, have high damage output.

This class can also summon skeletons, golems, spirits, and other creatures capable of tanking for you. In PvP, Necromancer is an excellent support class that can use Bone Walls and Bone Spikes to disrupt your opponent’s movements. The only drawback to the Necromancer is its lack of mobility.

Crusader

  • Type: Melee.
  • Attribute: Strength.

A DPS tank, Crusader is the strongest physical class in the game and rounds out our S-Tier choices in this best classes tier list. Just like Necromancer, it has excellent targeted and AoE attacks, such as Punish and Sacred Fire. But unlike Necromancer, Crusader has some of the better mobility skills in the game, such as Draw and Quarter, which summons a war horse, increases his speed by 60%, and removes certain debuffs.

In PvP, his Condemn ability can be of great help, as it burns all opponents once, then repeats the AoE again (with lesser damage), finishing off everyone who managed to stay alive. Crusader’s cooldowns could be a bit shorter, but you don’t have to worry about that too much since he has enough armor to protect him while you’re waiting.

A-Tier Classes

Barbarian

  • Type: Melee.
  • Attribute: Strength.

Barbarian is a pure DPS class that has fewer tanky abilities but more combat and mobility skills than Crusader. His Lacerate skill heals you while you attack, which can be quite useful, and if you feel that you need to push things even further with its attacks, then Frenzy will initiate a powerful hack-and-slash combo. While in PvP, I’ve effectively used the Hammer of the Ancients attack to frighten opponents and deal massive damage. Unfortunately, its cooldowns can also be quite slow, and its defensive skills aren’t that good, either.

Blood Knight

  • Type: Melee.
  • Attribute: Strength.

Blood Knight is the newest class in Diablo Immortal (and the entire Diablo franchise). Its primary skill is Abomination, which increases the class’ power and replaces skills with extra damage tools, such as Blood Rush and Shattering Fists. Blood Knight performs quite well in PvE, and I’d even put him on the same level as the Monk or the Necromancer in terms of playstyle, especially when you constantly use dashes and primary skills.

But this class is pretty weak in PvP. Although it’s classified as a DPS character, Blood Knight seems more of a support character in PvP, lacking damage and even defense. I also suggest checking out his essences, which do improve on many of his other skills, including various debuffs and stuns. But when it comes to Blood Knight’s biggest advantage, then that would be his mobility, which can make him very reactive in both PvE and PvP.

B-Tier Classes

Demon Hunter

  • Type: Ranged.
  • Attribute: Strength.

Demon Hunter is basically the physical counterpart to the Necromancer, though it has special and unique abilities to set up traps. Demon Hunter uses powerful Explosive Arrows that strike a single target for a massive amount of damage, which then spreads reduced damage to all other enemies in the vicinity.

In addition to your own ranged weapon, you can set up a Sentry that summons turrets that fire at enemies automatically. And, if you don’t want your enemies to know your position, then set up a Knife Trap to catch them by surprise. With all that said, Demon Hunter can be very lackluster in PvP due to its weak defenses.

Wizard

  • Type: Ranged.
  • Attribute: Intelligence.

Wizard is a great choice for players who like challenging battles, where AoE skills are important. This class also has the ability to chain damage with the Electrocute skill, which hits one target and spreads to others nearby. But the biggest advantage of the Wizard class is its Teleport skill, which allows you to change your position to avoid damage quickly; it’s especially useful in PvP. However, the Wizard has a ton of weaknesses. It has low health, long cooldowns, and a complete lack of buffing abilities.
