From a Sorceress to a Barbarian, players can see which class suits them best with the Diablo 4 class tier list!

Diablo 4 has a total of 5 classes in the current beta access, out of which three can be tested and tried as of now. While all classes are pretty playable, players might need assistance with figuring out which of the classes they should actually try out; therefore, a Diablo 4 Classes Tier List can solve all issues that players might be having!

Key Takeaways
  • There are a total of 5 classes that are to be released that range from a Barbarian, Druid, Rogue, Necromancer as well as Sorceress. 
  • All 5 classes have been ranked on the basis of their abilities, general playstyle, DPS potential, supporting abilities as well as damage output. 
  • The S-tier mainly focuses on classes that are the best of the best and serve the best potential in-game. 
  • The A-tier focuses on classes that are pretty solid, have a good playstyle, and generally are in the middle. 
  • The B-tier is a rank that players would rather not pick unless there weren’t better options available. 
  • The Sorceress as well as the Necromancer class, is placed in S-tier. 
  • The Rogue and Druid have been placed in the A-Tier
  • The Barbarian class has been placed in the B-tier

Tier List Summary 

With a total of 5 classes being available, ranging from Barbarian, Rogue, Necromancer, Sorceress as well Druid until the game is actually released, players won’t really be able to fully test out the Diablo 4 classes to the max of their abilities. Nonetheless, a summarised Diablo 4 Classes Tier List can be seen below.

Two main classes are placed in the S-tier as of now, the Sorceress and the Necromancer

The Sorceress itself is a spellcaster that is able to make use of magic to use elemental magic to take all kinds of enemies down. They are known to be the master of the elements

Advantages And Disadvantages

Pros And Cons

When it comes to their pros and cons, they can be seen as follows. 

  • Since Sorceresses typically tend to stay at a distance, they can stay extremely safe.
  • Alongside that, while older Sorceresses used to typically be pretty clunky, the overall movement speed of sorceresses has been bumped up.
  • None can beat the crowd-controlling skills.
  • While they have excellent crowd-controlling abilities, their AoE Damage is also unbeatable.
  • Again, versatility is one of the main key aspects of their skills.

As far as the cons are concerned, they can be seen here: 

  • The Sorceress is not a good close-ranged unit. 
  • The Sorceress is also extremely Mana-dependant.
  • The Sorceress will end up needing support from her fellow team rather than being able to provide support. 
  • Sorceresses cannot go head-to-head with any opponent. 



When it comes to the Necromancer is one of the best classes that players can go for, and they are known to be the custodians between life and death. They are once again a caster that can use Essence and Corpses as their main resources. 

Advantages And Disadvantages 


Moving on, let’s take a look at why or why not players might want to pick the Necromancer as their main class. The pros include the of: 

  • The Necromancer has excellent AoE damage.
  • Skeletal Skirmishers gain a buff that allows them to get enhanced damage output.
  • Skeletal Defenders have extra HP, which automatically allows them to stay alive for longer. 
  • Skeletal Reapers hone their high damage.
  • The Necromancer class also has solid versatility
  • Players can call for their own set of minions.

There are two main reasons why players might be deterred from playing as a Necromancer: 

  • The Skeletal Reapers have slower attack animations.
  • The skeletal skirmishers generally have less HP than usual.


In the A-tier, both the Rogue as well as the Druid make the cut, with the Rogue being a striker class and the Druid being a shapeshifter.

The Rogue is a striker class that is extremely quick on their feet, and they can mix together the elements of both ranged and melee combat, making them an extremely handy class to choose from. They mainly make use of Energy and combo points.

Now, one of the main reasons why the Rogue doesn’t have a lower number in our Diablo 4 Classes Tier List is simply because of the different advantages that they bring to the table, such as: 

  • The rogue class has extremely high damage output.
  • They can also use their effects, such as Slow, freeze, or stun, to cause enemies to become more vulnerable.
  • Alongside that, the Rogue is also extremely fast.
  • The Rogue can be a pretty solid all-rounder class with their abilities.
  • The combination of ranged and melee combat is another reason to pick the Rogue. 

As far as the cons are concerned, they are as follows: 

  • One thing that players need to make sure of whenever they are playing as the Rogue is consistently dodging
  • The Rogue is also a class that ends up being easily hurt and is vulnerable during combat. 
  • Players need to map and plan out their attacks beforehand to ensure their survivability.

When it comes to Druids, they are pretty much the pinnacle of shapeshifting. While playing as a Druid, they can either become a bear or a wolf, and they specialize in mainly carrying out air and earth attacks. 

Advantages And Disadvantages

Moving on, here are some main reasons players might want to play as the Druid In Diablo 4

  • Whenever players are shapeshifting into their werewolf form, they can take advantage of the increased attack speed.
  • Along that, while being a werewolf, they can also land critical hits on opponents.
  • Druids themselves don’t lack in damage at all, which makes them a pretty solid DPS pick.
  • The combination of lightning and earth magic brings a little bit of versatility to the Druid class.

There aren’t any disadvantages to using the Druid except for one: 

  • While forming bonds with spirit animals at the start, players can only form bonds with one spirit animal. 


The Barbarian is the only class that gets a place in the B-tier, mainly due to its long cooldowns and the immense dodging players need to do while playing it.

Last but not least, the Barbarian has been ranked pretty low due to its face value. The Barbarian class itself is known to be masters of strength, aggressiveness, tanking as well as damage output. The Arsenal System allows players to slot 4 weapons. 

Advantages And Disadvantages

Let’s wrap things up by discussing why or why not players might want to pick the Barbarian as their main class, starting with the advantages: 

  • Barbarians are probably one of if not the tankiest class in Diablo 4.
  • Whenever players play as the Barbarian, they can enter a Berserk mode.
  • The Berserk mode also allows the character to move 30% faster.
  • With their bleeding abilities, Barbarians can cause enemies to be inflicted with the bleed debuff.

As nice as the advantages sound, the Barbarian class falls off in certain aspects with its disadvantages

  • Dodging. That’s all. Players need to dodge consistently whenever they are playing as barbarian.
  • Other than that, Barbarians also have pretty long cooldowns on their skills.

Tier List Criteria 

Tier lists are typically made by keeping the general playstyle of each class in mind. Since two of the five classes are not available to play as of the early beta, they are yet to be tested at hand. 

  • General playstyle 
  • Abilities 
  • Damage output
  • Versatility 
  • DPS potential 

These are typically the main things that players might look into whenever they want to main a class in Diablo 4.
