    With Diablo 4 Season 2 now upon us, many players are re-launching new characters and trying out new classes in the process. As with any time of the year, some classes stand out above others. Below is where classes are currently located.

    Leveling Class Tier List in Diablo 4 Season of the Blood

    To start, Diablo 4 Season 2’s five classes will be able to clear the content the game has to offer, so don’t feel like you have to create a new character if you created one that is considered lower level.

    While many people focus on the final look of Diablo 4, the leveling process is equally important. You have builds that work for both, like Bone Spear Necromancer, but that’s not always the case. Interestingly, this can make a class better for leveling up, but then worse for the endgame. Here’s a look at where classes stack up as you level up.

    • Yes: Necromancer, Rogue
    • TO: Sorcerer, Druid
    • b: barbaric

    The Necromancer and Rogue top the list because of how strong the builds for these classes can be. Bone Spear is still a high-level leveling build, and might even be the fastest way to level up across all classes, period. The Sever Necromancer is another good build, and we can’t forget about Corpse Explosion either. For rogues, we have the Twisting Blades build, which is one of the most powerful leveling builds, and is joined by Penetrating Shot and Rapid Fire. That’s why Rogue is in S tier.

    Going down to A level, we have Sorcerer and Druid. Sorcerers are very mobile, and Chain Lightning is one of the highest damage-dealing builds we’ve seen so far. Ice Shards Sorcerer is also a good choice. For druids, we have the Pulverize build that will transform you into a highly mobile damage powerhouse. This build excels in both AoE and single target fights, so this build alone takes Druid to A-tier.

    For us, Barbarian is only in the B tier, but there are still many options available. While Whirlwind is one of the most popular builds, it’s quite weak in single-target fights, and that’s part of why Barbarian ranks so low for leveling. Your best leveling build for a barbarian is probably Hammer of the Ancients, as it’s fast and has little downtime.

    Endgame Class Tier List for Diablo 4 Season 2

    The endgame is a little different because we will see more builds become viable thanks to more skills and equipment available to us. As mentioned, we see that Bone Spear is still a solid build, but things like Werewolf Tornado and Stormclaw Druid also make leaps. Here’s how things play out by the end of the game.

    • Yes: Druid, Rogue
    • TO: Necromancer, Sorcerer
    • b: barbaric

    The Druid makes the biggest gains here, as Pulverize remains a solid late-game option when leveling up, and a few new builds join it as one of the strongest in Season of Blood. Rogue is still very strong with her Twisting Blades build, but you’ll also have the option to switch to Flurry Rapid Fire if you wish.

    For A level, we put the Necromancer here not because it’s bad, but because we feel the other two classes are ahead. Bone Spear remains one of the strongest builds in the game, and Infinimist will certainly see some play this season as well. Sorcerer has a variety of options with Blizzard, Ice Shards, and even Firewall. Chain Lightning slows down a bit as we move towards the end of the game, but you can make it work, it’ll just be a little harder to do.

    Barbarian remains in Tier B for us, but there are still plenty of good builds left to do. Double Swing, Rend, and yes, Whirlwind are still good options. Rend is a really fun build because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as watching a boss just bleed out.
