Diablo 2’s classes each have their own allure, but what characters and builds are the best in Resurrected?
Whether you’re new to Diablo 2 Resurrected or a returning player, it’s always good to have the sweet satisfaction of knowing that you’re playing the best class that you possibly can be.
With everything from the spell-slinging Sorceress to the animal menagerie that accompanies the Druid, choosing the right class for you can seem like a pretty daunting task.
If you want to stay ahead of the pack and really stick it to the hordes of hell, here’s all of the Diablo 2 classes ranked in terms of their best builds in Resurrected.

Best Diablo 2 Resurrected classes
With Patch 2.4 giving the game its first update in 11 years, the tier list has shifted slightly in response. Below we’ve listed all heroes of Sanctuary from best to worst. Of course, simply ranking the characters isn’t enough information, so we’ll get into the best builds too.
However, our general Diablo 2 class tier list goes:
It’s important to remember, though, that if you love to play one of the lower tier characters and are having the time of your life shredding hell’s finest then that’s all that matters.

Best Diablo 2 Resurrected Builds
It’s one thing to say that the Sorceress is topping the charts, but that’s very much dependent on using the right build. Some builds are simply built better, while others can be a bit more of a struggle to work with.
Below are all of the current best builds, but expect these to change as the seasons progress:

Of course, these are the best builds in the book in terms of raw power:
Character --- Build
Sorceress --- Blizzard Sorceress
Sorceress --- Lightning Sorceress
Necromancer --- Poison Nova Necromancer
Necromancer --- Summon Necromancer
Amazon --- Lightning Javazon
Paladin --- Hammerdin
Paladin --- Smite Paladin
Barbarian --- Goldfind Barbarian
Barbarian --- Berserk Barbarian
Assassin --- Lightning Trapsin

If none of the S-Tier builds take your fancy, then A-Tier builds will let you plow through demons pretty quickly, too:
Character --- Build
Sorceress --- Fire Ball Meteor Sorceress
Sorceress --- Fire Ball Blizzard Sorceress
Sorceress --- Fire Ball Nova Sorceress
Sorceress --- Bear Sorceress
Druid --- Fire Druid
Druid --- Wind Druid
Paladin --- Zeal Paladin
Paladin --- Dream Paladin
Assassin --- Kicksin

While none of these builds are awful, each has more drawbacks than they do positives. If one of them really appeals to you and you want to make it work we suggest you go for it, but on the whole, these are pretty average builds at the moment:
Character --- Build
Assassin --- Fire Trapsin
Assassin --- Fireblast Assassin
Druid --- Fury Druid
Necromancer --- Bone Spear Necromancer
Nercomancer --- Corpse Explosion Necromancer
Sorceress --- Zeal Sorceress
Barbarian --- Whirlwind Barbarian
Barbarian --- Warcry Barbarian
Barbarian --- Frenzy Barbarian
Sorceress --- Frozen Orb Sorceress
Sorceress --- Meteorb Sorceress
Sorceress --- Zeal Sorceress
Amazon --- Freezing Arrow Bowazon
Amazon --- Poison Javazon

As we wade further into uncharted territory, these are the builds we recommend only using if you know the game inside and out:
Character --- Build
Druid --- Fire Claws Druid
Assassin --- Whirlwind Assassin
Assassin --- Vampire
Amazon --- Multishot Bowazon
Sorceress --- Fire Wall Sorceress
Barbarian --- Wolf Barbarian
Druid --- Rabies Druid
Assassin --- Bladesin
Sorceress --- Meleeress

So that’s it for Diablo 2’s best classes coming into Resurrected. Remember, though, this list is just a guideline, and you should play the game however you want to!
