Diablo Immortal: 12 Broken Character Builds
When there’s a game like Diablo Immortal that has been refined, it’s hard to find a really “broken” version. Some builds might work better for PvP and some might work better for PvE, but are there any builds so truly off the chain that they can break the balance of the game?
In fact, yes. For players who are wealthy and lucky enough to have access to the best Legendary Gems, there are builds that can be infinitely better than the standard builds. Need proof? Check out the Challenge Rift and Battleground leaderboards in Diablo Immortal and find that these destroy the cards.
This list is divided into PvP and PvE sections. The order was compiled by averaging each build’s rank across all servers and uses the top player builds.
12 Barbarian – PvP – Whirlwind
Being constantly slowed down and pulled is both annoying and fatal. By investing in a PvP Whirlwind build, the Barbarian becomes both a source of constant harassment and a bit of a tank. This leaves enemies with the choice of unsuccessfully targeting the Barbarian or dealing with his constant slows and pulls as they attack the Barbarian’s teammates.
11 Necromancer – PvP – Command Golem
For builds that overpower opponents in PvP, they usually require strong neutralization, otherwise the enemies simply retreat to safety. The perfect PvP Necromancer build has a Golem that can constantly jump, close the gap to enemies, and stun them. Add bone armor and a spectral form to make the class both tanky and mobile.
ten Wizard – PvP – Black Hole
Catching even a single enemy in a combination of Black Hole and Disintegrate is often a death sentence for the victim. When the magician catches an entire team, he can end Battlegrounds in record time. What makes this the greatest version of the PvP wizard isn’t just that combo, but the invisibility and movement granted by Teleport.
9 Crusader – PvP – Rotating Shield
Although the best PvP build for the crusader might be called the Spinning Shield build, teammates will appreciate the skill set. The Crusader has a solid mix of support, tanking, and group damage skills that will make allies happy to have one on the team. As with other strong PvP builds, enemy teams will need to spread out to avoid taking group damage.
8 Monk – PvP – Seven Sided Strike
Seven-Sided Strike is amazing against groups of enemies and single targets, so it’s a natural choice for the best PvP monk build. In addition to some significant team buffs, the Monk can stun an entire enemy team if they group together, forcing them to scatter and lose the protection they would have had with their teammates.
seven Demon Hunter – PvP – Rain of Vengeance
The skill set for Demon Hunters in PvP and PvE is identical, but the best version for PvP Rain Of Vengeance characters is anything but a copy and paste of the PvE version.
With added mobility for the class and disables/slows against opponents, the Demon Hunter currently tops the charts on most servers when it comes to Battlegrounds leaderboards.
6 Wizard – PvE – Meteor
Dropping a comet on everyone’s head is as powerful against monsters as it sounds. Build around the Meteor in PvE and the Wizard is probably the fastest class to clear everything down to the boss in Challenge Rifts. Ice Armor and Arcane Wind can protect the wizard and disable opponents so the wizard is out of harm’s way for most of the fight.
5 Crusader – PvE – Draw and Quarter
No class gathers groups of enemies and shoots them down like the Crusader. Other characters may have a nod to mobility, but the best PvE Draw And Quarter build is the ultimate for killing fleeing opponents. There is also a good Holy Banner buff for the final boss. Add Falling Sword for even more mobility and this class can bridge the gap like no other.
4 Barbarian – PvE – Frenzy
The story of the higher difficulty Challenge Rifts is a tired story for the other classes. they can shrink the whole instance, but the final boss takes forever. With an ideal Frenzy build for the Barbarian, the final boss is actually the easiest part of the instance. Don’t worry, Whirlwind does a lot of damage to mobs along the way.
3 Necromancer – PvE – Summoner
One issue that prevents other classes from completing Challenge Rifts is that they take too much damage in sustained combat.
The best PvE build for Necromancers is to have other units tank instead, freeing up the Necromancer to focus on dealing damage and dodging major attacks.
2 Demon Hunter – PvE – Revenge
It is possible to maintain almost 100% availability on Vengeance with a version specialized in its use. This is an incredible damage buff that will kill most opponents before they can enter the Demon Hunter’s melee range. For bosses and elites with extra health, there’s more than enough mobility here to kite and down targets simultaneously.
1 Monk – PvE – Cyclone Strike
Currently the leader on all Challenge Rifts servers, the PvE Cyclone Strike version of the Monk has a bit of everything. Invincibility, mobility and, of course, massive group and single-target damage. Due to the nature of how skills stack, it will take more than just a damage nerf to reduce the output of this build. Building renders mobs useless for long periods of time.
