Amazon

First up is the deadly Amazon.

While the Amazon has gone through a few visual changes coming into Diablo 2 Resurrected, she still remains one of the game’s most powerful classes. With the ability to throw Javelins or use the spear and shield, she’s the perfect blend of aggressive and defensive playstyles.

Assassin

Players will finally be able to get their hands on the elusive Assassin upon release.

So far we haven’t seen much of the Assassin, which may not be a shock considering stealth is her main method of combat. Perfect for players that like to one-shot enemies and get out without a scratch, the Assassin nurtures a high risk/high reward playstyle.

If you’re looking to master the shadows, we’ve got a dedicated Assassin build guide here.

Barbarian

The musclebound Barbarian is perfect for tank players.

If you’re looking to cut down Diablo’s minions and look good doing it, then the Barbarian is the one for you. With the ability to wield both two-handed weapons alongside a shield and sword, you can either go fully offensive, or have a little bit of defense to make sure you don’t get obliterated.

Druid

Blizzard Entertainment
The rugged Druid is perfect for nature lovers.

Ever wanted your own animal arsenal? Then the Druid is the one for you. Allowing players to go down either an elemental or summoner-focused pathway, the Druid is perfect for tank players who want to scratch that magical itch. Also, he can turn into a werewolf, so there’s that.

In order to command nature to your whim, be sure to check out our Druid guide.

Necromancer

Diablo 2 Resurrected Necromancer
Blizzard Entertainment
Just like the Druid, the Necromancer relies on his summons.

The Necromancer has remained largely in the shadows during the Diablo 2 Resurrected alpha and beta tests, but he’s back in black and here for blood. Wielding armies of undead to his will, this macabre mage is perfect for players who are happy to send out ghouls to haunt the front lines while they bombard enemies with spells from behind.

Paladin

For more traditional tank players, the Paladin is the one for you. Focusing on sword and shield-based combat, alongside spells to help top up your buffs and tear down enemy health bars, this righteous warrior is perfect for skilled fighters. He’s a little more complex than the Barbarian though, so make sure you’re ready for some grinding!

Sorceress

Diablo 2 Resurrected Sorceress
Blizzard Entertainment
Last but not least, the spell-slinging Sorceress is one of Diablo 2’s most popular classes.

Rounding out our heroic roster is the Sorceress. Perfect for traditional mage players, her spells rely on the elements to heap damage upon her opponents. With the ability to rain fire, ice and lightning from the skies, the mistress of magic is one of the game’s most powerful classes.

Has the Sorceress lured you in? If so, be sure to check out our extensive build list for her to make sure you utilize her skills to their devastating potential.


So those are all seven of Diablo 2’s classes. With all of them available upon Resurrected’s release, you’ll be able to experiment away until your heart’s content!
