Diablo Immortal Classes: Which Class Should You Play

Each of the 6 classes in the F2P MMO Diablo has its own style, strengths, and weaknesses: Wizard, Demon Hunter, Necromancer, Barbarian, Crusader, and Monk. Here’s a guide to what to look for when making your selection, so you can enjoy the game.

Choosing your class is a dilemma that often arises in games, especially in MMOs, and it’s also the case in Diablo Immortal. For players who always choose the same class in the various titles of the license, this may not be a problem, but it is an important choice for many other players. There are many factors to consider, and some of them are not as obvious as one might think at first.

Before we get into the details, your preferences are the most important thing. There aren’t huge disparities between the classes in Diablo Immortal, since there aren’t really any specific roles. And even though the different classes are more or less good at certain things, you’ll usually never find yourself stuck or significantly handicapped by your choice of class.

BARBARIAN

The wild and gruff warrior of the license is once again present in the report, with a gameplay similar to that of the previous titles. Melee combat is thus favored by far. This big brute is probably the strongest class in the game and has good AoE. It also has several group bonuses with shouting, and it proved to be formidable in both PvE and PvP in the beta. This makes her a solid choice either way.

– Better survival of the game
– Good group input
– Good AoE
– Great in PvP
– Low single-target damage
– It depends on his techniques with a recharge time

DEMON HUNTER

With a fist crossbow in each hand, the Demon Hunter is considered the best single-target DPS in the game, which immediately makes it a very appealing choice for many players, as the bosses are as large as they are numerous in Diablo Immortal. Being able to deal a lot of damage while keeping his distance makes him an excellent single-player class, but this comes at a price, as the Demon Hunter’s mobility skill is perhaps the worst in the game, and it is also the most fragile class. Its group bonuses are also quite poor compared to the others, but the DPS makes up for it. In PvP, it’s a good class to attack other players from afar as well, while your friends take damage for you.

– Best single-target DPS in the game with its basic attacks
– Tons of long-range attacks
– It’s pretty easy to play
– Fragile
– Less mobile than other classes

CRUSADER

This heavily armored knight is probably the closest thing to a tank in this game, but you shouldn’t think that’s what he’s for. He’s an incredibly mobile class thanks to his steed skill, which allows him to ride through hordes of enemies with powerful area attacks in all directions. The Crusader has excellent group bonuses, which also makes it the best pseudo-support. For players who want to combine roles and features, this is an excellent choice: mobility, survival, AoE, and support. Of course, it doesn’t make the coffee either, its single-target attacks are by far the worst in the game, and it also relies quite heavily on its cooldown techniques. In summary, this is definitely the best class to play in a group.

– Excellent AoE
– Very mobile
– Probably the best group bonuses
– Good survival
– Good in both PvE and PvP
– Really weak single-target damage
– It depends on its cooldown techniques

WIZARD

The arcane master also returns in Diablo Immortal, with his vast arsenal of elemental spells. If you like elemental combos and controls, you’re in for a treat, freezing a group of enemies, stunning them with lightning, and pulverizing them with a meteor to finish them off is a staple of the gameplay. It’s a class with very varied gameplay, combining both excellent area damage, even the best if it’s localized, with good single-target damage with the laser. Add to that good mobility with instant teleportation from a distance and it sounds too good, right? The problem is that many of these techniques are skillshots, which means that you have to place them well, with the right timing, in order to create a combo, which is not always possible. The level of play required is, therefore, higher than for other classes, and this also makes it difficult to play in PvP. She is also terribly dependent on her cooldowns, which can leave you unprepared.

– Satisfying gameplay
– Excellent AoE if concentrated and well used
– Good single-target damage
– Good controls too
– Teleportation to move and survive
– More difficult to play than other classes
– It’s very dependent on cooldowns
– Really hard to play in PvP
– Little group input

MONK

This fast and agile fighter is a master martial artist who uses his fists, feet, and holy abilities to decimate demons. This is a melee class with a lot of control tools, such as the ability to group enemies together before dealing AoE, all with excellent mobility. The downside is that this fast-paced play style requires you to perform attack combos, which is not always easy or possible. Its one-touch damage is also a bit weak. As one would expect from the Monk, he also offers good group contributions with his shields and such. Let’s not forget to mention that he’s interested in PvP since he’ll move other players, which can prove to be absolutely formidable.

– Good area damage
– Very mobile
– Good group contributions
– Interesting controls
– Single-target damage is a bit weak
– Fast pace of play and difficult to master

NECROMANCER

Finally, the Necromancer and his undead summons are also part of the game. He stands out from the other classes thanks to his pets which will tank a bit and deal damage while he unleashes his curses and various bone spells. In addition to his exotic gameplay, he has both good group contributions and control techniques that are effective in many situations. As a bonus, it is played from a distance, making it a very powerful class early in the game, though the gap tends to fade later on. While it is a ranged class, it also tends to have to play relatively close to enemies, which exposes it more. Popular builds also tend to sacrifice mobility in favor of ultimate.

– Pets that fight for you
– Good group input
– Good controls
– Effective single-shot damage
– It’s very powerful at the start
– Must stay relatively close to the fray
– Mobility is often sacrificed
– It depends on bodies for certain abilities

Can you change classes in DIABLO IMMORTAL?

You won’t be able to change class at launch, but it’s a feature that’s said to be coming “shortly thereafter in a patch”. So you shouldn’t be locked with a class you don’t like, forcing you to start from the beginning with a new character. Details are unknown at this time, however, so it’s best to choose seriously.
