Diablo 2 Resurrected is an Action-RPG game by Blizzard. This game lets you play in different styles by using classes.

Here I have shortlisted the three best classes for you to choose from based on your playstyle. I would highly recommend you to try all these three classes to understand how you play before you start story acts. But if I were to recommend one of these three I would recommend Barbarian. Now, let’s look at the best classes for beginners.

Barbarian – Best Beginners Class Diablo 2 Resurrected

If you like fighting your enemies up close this class is for you. Barbarians are very good in close fights thanks to them being very tanky and having high health. Their ability to wield two weapons on both hands is also very useful. They deal high damage to a single opponent but can have trouble handling situations when you face multiple foes at the same time.

A handy ability for Barabrians is their Warcries. You can use these to not only increase the attack and defense of yourself but also of your team. While this class is considered to be a tough one to start with, but if you are a melee fighter then it shouldn’t be a problem.

This class is recommended if you like to keep your distance from your opponents while playing. She deals very high damage and you can do that all from a safe distance. Her best ability is Teleport. This comes in handy if you are caught up in a risky situation and need to escape.

Additionally, her abilities aren’t just restricted to Teleport, she can also use spells that can deal Fire, Lightning, and Ice damage. One thing to keep in mind is that she has low health so you will need to make sure you maintain distance when getting into fights.

Amazon – Best Starting Class in D2R

You should use this class if you prefer a balance when using ranged and melee attacks. She can deal huge damage while maintaining distance just like the sorceress. And she can also participate in melee fights when she uses her javelin or spear. Once you figure out your play style max either Javelin and Spear Skill tree or Bow and Crossbow Skill tree. She has average health so you can fight in close combat but it is still recommended to maintain your distance.

That sums up this guide for the best starting class in Diablo 2 Resurrected. In case you need any help with D2R including how to identify items, classes/builds, understanding the controls, how to import old characters and fix the chat not working issue, we’ve got you covered.
