If you aren’t sure yet what class and build you should play for the new ladder reset, why don’t you take a look at our list of 11 most popular builds? If you like the builds below, you can find more information on our builds guides. Sorceress was arguably the most popular class build in Diablo 2. Frozen Orb provided excessive amounts of damage in the early days of the game. However, the skill’s damage was reduced after a patch. As a result, the players started to use Blizzard instead which is still the most effective Cold spell. However, you can use Frozen Orb as a secondary skill, or to use this as a primary skill in combination with a skill from a different element. This way, you can counter enemies with every kind of immunity. Barbarian doesn’t provide a large amount of damage, but it has a great combination of support damage and survivability. Thus, it can act as a tank and it’s a recommended choice when playing with a party. Necromancer is one of the most special and fun builds in Diablo 2. The ability to summon a huge skeleton army and revive Diablo’s minions to fight at your side makes this build one of a kind. The Summonmancer is an ideal choice for a party as well, thanks to his curses that allow him to weaken his enemies. The Corpse Explosion is an excellent source of damage too. Druid provides a massive amount of AoE (Area of Effect) damage versus big groups of monsters. The Hurricane in combination with the Tornado spell results in large amounts of elemental damage output. The Wind Druid can take advantage of Oak Sage summon as well, to boost the entire party health pool. Sorceress has always been one of the most popular classes in the game. Over the years spells like Frozen Orb and Nova became less effective. When Lord of Destruction was released, the Chain Lightning Sorceress became a popular build choice. The ability to combine Chain Lightning with a different elemental spell, resulting in a build that is very effective versus every kind of enemy regardless of their resistances. You can use an Infinity Runeword on your mercenary, so the monsters would no longer be immune to your Lightning damage. Paladins are not a very effective choice for common Magic Finding and Baal runs. They are extremely popular due to how effective they are against the Prime Evils in Uber Tristram. It’s the only known class that can kill almost all Uber Bosses even solo. The only enemies a Smiter cannot slay are those with physical immunity because Smite is a melee skill. It’s not a very effective choice against large groups of monsters though. new ladder reset, our build guides or visit our store to find your favorite items! Stay tuned!
