Diablo III Classes

Diablo 3 classes are a natural evolution from the 2nd game, as well as Blizzard’s other properties. Covering a wide array of playstyles, but sadly not as much variety as one would expect from an aRPG. All skills and abilities are super-polished, so it’s easy to figure out which classes you like the most, while you can also build each class in different ways – just not as much as we’re used to from the genre, and games like Path of Exile or Grim Dawn.
