What’s the Best Class in Diablo 3?
Now that Diablo 3 is out, you’re probably wondering what’s the best class to play so that you can get started in Diablo 3 and beat the game without having to restart or ending up with a weak class.
In Diablo 3 there are 5 classes: Barbarian, WItch Doctor, Wizard, Monk, and Demon Hunter.
So which class is the best?
Barbarian - brute force! This class causes physical damage just like in Diablo 2. You’ll be up close and kicking ass.
Witch Doctor - the new Necromancer. Death, disease, curses, and minions. Sit back and watch from a distance as you destroy everything in the area.
Wizard - Like the sorcerer from Diablo 2, forces of storm and arcane magic to destroy enemies.
Monk - martial artists, brand new class, holy warriors. Physical combat.
Demon Hunter - the new amazon. Similar to a Hunter. You can launch explosives from range.
So if you’re looking to beat the game on Inferno Mode here is classes ranked from best to worst:
- Witch Doctor
- Demon Hunter
Physical prowess is the key to this game right now, until Blizzard nerfs or changes it. Barbarians are hands down the best, followed by monks. Then we have Witch Doctors who also have a component of physical attacks with their minions. Followed by Wizard, who has no minions and is all ranged and weak. Demon Hunter being the weakest class. If you want to beat the game on Inferno stick with a Barbarian or Monk until Blizzard fixes the ranged classes.
