Diablo 3 tier list: Best character classes & builds for Season 28
Diablo 3 Season 28 is here, but which character should you choose? Here’s a breakdown of every class, ranked, and which builds come top of the tier list.
In every Season of Diablo 3, some characters shine more than others. Therefore, we’ve produced a tier list for you to see who’s already crushing Hell’s minions in Season 28. Diablo 3-tier lists boil down to character builds, which ones are popular, working well, and associated with which character classes.
We’ve ranked each of the classes in Diablo 3 for Season 28, then provided a tier list of which builds work best for each character. This way, not only will you be able to select the best characters this Season, you’ll know exactly how to build them.
Diablo 3 Season 28: Best classes ranked
Below, we’ve listed all of Diablo 3’s character classes from best to worst. Bear in mind, this is simply based on the current rankings for Season 28. The list may slightly resemble the end of the last season due to these builds rising to prominence during that Season.
This means, that by Season 29, the rankings could look very different. So, if the Crusader and Witch Doctor are your favorite classes, fear not, they will likely rise back to the top one day!
Remember, if you think you’re going to have more fun playing with a lower-tier character, then go for it. Diablo 3’s Seasons exist for fun. The tier list is simply here as a guideline to which builds are doing well. By playing as a lower-tier character, and dominating, you may actually help your favorite class climb up the rankings – especially if you create a powerful build.
Our Diablo 3 tier list is separated into classes with S-Tier representing the current most powerful builds available in Season 28. We’ve broken it down by character class and build, the higher the tier, the more powerful each is considered.
This represents the top tier and best builds in Season 28 of Diablo 3. The Necromancer is reigning supreme this season, but other classes are also represented:
