Diablo 4 has been out for some time now, and players are already wondering which class of the five available is the least played.
The five classes consist of Barbarian, Rogue, Sorcerer, Necromancer, and Druid. Each of these classes brings a completely different playstyle to the world of Sanctuary.
Players are already finding that some skills are incredibly OP, but unfortunately, not every class seems to be as well received.
Here is the class players choose to play least in Diablo 4 and why the class ranks so low.
Least Played Class in Diablo 4
The Druid is currently the least played class in Diablo 4 due to its sluggish gameplay in the earlier levels. Players need to reach at least Level 25 or higher to get the most out of the class.
It’s also worth noting that the Druid class is the only class that wasn’t originally in Diablo 3. This could also potentially be why players start with other, more familiar characters first.
But many who have played as the Druid say that once you reach a level where you can properly set up your skills, it is one of the most powerful classes in Diablo IV.
This is because the Druid has a high skill ceiling that requires investment and a mastery skill that is a bit more difficult to get the hang of than others.
But Diablo 4 is still relatively new, and many players have yet to reach the endgame areas yet.
This means that once players complete their first playthrough with a class like the Barbarian or Sorcerer, they’ll start to dive into the more difficult classes to master, like the Druid.
Most Played Class in Diablo 4
Diablo’s Development Cheif, Rod Fergusson, recently revealed on Twitter that the most popular class in Diablo 4 is the Sorcerer/Sorceress.
This is actually a bit surprising, considering the Sorcerer/Sorceress learning curve is a bit steeper. It isn’t as easy as the Barbarian or Rogue to use during a solo run.
But thanks to their spell variety, it is possible to create quite a few viable builds with the Sorcerer, like the High Crit Storm Mage.
The Sorcerer is also one of the returning classes of Diablo 3, so it makes sense that many players gravitated toward it for their first playthrough.
This could potentially change once the first Diablo 4 Season begins if they follow what they did in Diablo 3 and bring in season-specific mechanics.
Ranking Each Diablo 4 Class For First Playthrough
There are five classes in Diablo IV, and here is how we rank them in terms of how well they pay off for first-time players.
The Druid is the most difficult class to learn and is also the only class that wasn’t in Diablo 3. This means that even returning players will need to first learn its playstyle before properly using their skills.
New players will find themselves enjoying the Barbarian and Rogue more easily due to the nature of their abilities and how easy it is to grasp their mastery skills.
The Sorcerer has one of the most powerful ones allowing him to turn one of his spells into a passive with the Enchantment Slot.
This class is likely so popular because it offers heavy firepower from the beginning of the campaign.
The Barbarian is currently one of the best classes to pick as a beginner since it is easy to pick up and form a build with.
It offers a ton of firepower and also a large health pool to allow players to maintain their DPS while staying alive.
