If you are someone who loves playing mages in a game, then this is your go-to character. Mage or sorceress has different powers, which can be very helpful in the game. She is one of the fan’s favourite characters because of how many other elements she can use. She is one of the best DPS characters in the game due to her cool downtimes, variety of attacks, teleportation ability, and versatility.

Three types of skill trees exist for Sorceress in Diablo 2 Resurrected. These skills include lighting Spells, Cold Spells and Fire Spells. Each skill tree gives you access to different powerful spells which you can use to wipe out hordes of enemies. Fire Spells focus on damage mainly, whereas lighting spells focus on defence and unique elemental effects. The last cold episodes do minor damage, but they can be very effective as they can make the enemy vulnerable and help increase the defence.

One of the most challenging yet fun classes to use in Diablo 2 is the assassins class. You can use her skills, including martial arts, deadly traps, ninja techniques, and even stealth, which keeps her from detecting. However, it takes real skill to use her properly and give justice to the character in the game. Below we have made a table showcasing all her skill trees.

Assassins use martial arts, traps, or hide and kill from the shadows. As their name suggests, their training allows them to kill with precision. Their unique abilities can give an advantage if you use them right in battle without depending on magical powers.

If you prefer jack of all trades, Druid is your go-to character in Diablo 2 Resurrected. Druids can manipulate nature itself by making wind and plants take the forms of animals. There are different builds you can do with Druid where each focuses on doing different things. We have created a table below to give a better idea about the skill tree of Druid.

Barbarians, as mentioned above, use raw strength to dominate anyone that comes in their path. Their skill trees will allow you to make more one-on-one combat attacks. They are made so that the skill trees only focus on making your barbarian character more brutal and powerful with every skill unlocked.

Diablo 2 Resurrected Tier List

In Diablo 2 Resurrected all classes have different abilities and unique skills, which is just the starting of the versatility in the game. Players can customize and make their characters according to them. There are different character skills trees that we have shown above. So it can be very tough to decide which is the best class to play in Diablo 2 Resurrected. However, we have broken down every type and made a complete tier list of all the classes.

Best Classes in Diablo 2 Resurrected (A Complete Tier List)

S-tier (Best)Necromancer, Paladin
A-tier (Good)Amazon, Druid, Sorceress
B-tier (Average)Assassin
C-tier (Not Recommend)Barbarian

Necromancer and Paladin are easily the best classes in the game because of their skill trees and abilities. Paladin and Necromancer are the most potent classes you can play in Diablo 2. Paladin has a wide variety of magical and melee skills and adds to that. Paladin also has access to ranged weapons. Necromancer after a level can be one the most challenging classes to face. He can summon an army of the dead and wipe out hordes of enemies in seconds.

Amazon, Druid, and Sorceress all are on the A-class as they are suitable classes if you know how to use them. With the right person using them, they can be deadly, but they come below Necromancer and Paladin without that. Assassin and Barbarian’s last two are in the B and C tier due to their abilities and lack of versatility. Stealth and lurking in the shadows might sound great, but when you are playing a game like Diablo 2, there is not much you can do with it. As for Barbarian, his melee abilities come short if he goes against someone who has magical powers, so using him is questionable.

Diablo 2 Resurrected Build Tier List

S-tier (Best)Hammer Build, Summoner Build, Hammerdin MF% Build, Summoner MF% Build, Frozen Orb Build
A-tier (Good)Archer Build, Lighting Javelin Build, Whirlwind Build, Frenzy Build, Elemental Wind Build, Elemental Fire Build, Bone Spell Build, Poison Nova Build, Blizzard Build, Fire Meteorb Build, Chain Lightning Build, Blizzard MF% Build, Whirlwind MF% Build, Fist of Heaven Build, Smiter Build, Zealot Build, Berserker Build, Throwing Build, Ice Bowazon Build, Lighting Sentry Build
B-tier (Average)Trapper Build, Concentrate Build, Fire Wall Build, Poison Build, Werewolf Build, Full Summoner Build, Werebear Build, Fire Bowazon Build, Poison Javelin Build, Explosion Build, Elemental Build, Chaos Runeword Build
C-tier (Not Recommend)Dragon Talon Kicksin Build, PVP Charge Build, Smilet Charger Build, Melee Enchantress Build

All the above-mentioned S Tier builds are the best builds you can do in the game. Each build gives you the best outcomes of your time spent with the characters and the game. For example, Necromancer’s Summoner Build and Sorceress’s Frozen Orb build are the most potent and reliable builds made in the game. They will always give you an advantage over your enemies if you use your abilities well. All A tier builds come as one of the great builds in the game. However, they are inferior to S-Tier Builds.

You can get great results using them, although, they only excel at a certain amount of skills, and they do not offer versatility like S-Tier Builds. B Tier builds average builds, and they are undoubtedly inferior. Although if you can use a class well, you can still excel at it by using B-Tier Class Builds. C-Tier builds are not builds we do not recommend using, but you can try using them for fun.
