While some people love to play Diablo III with their friends, others prefer to go it solo. As we¬†head into Season 25, let’s discuss which classes will make achieving your seasonal goals easiest. These classes have been determined from the gear being offered in Season 25 and from consistently good classes in other seasons. They are the kind of hero classes that are versatile and durable while still clearing waves in rapid succession. Even if destruction is more fun, survivability is really key here.

At the end of the day, though, play whatever class you love the most. These are just the trio that will make grinding the game by yourself a much easier task.

Crusader

This class is a perfect mix of tank, support, and damage. It very much depends on how you build the Crusader, but its versatility means that it’s a commonly popular solo build. Since you are trying to push through the game in Seasons mode, Crusaders’ buffness helps make that whole process easier. Pair them with the rogue archer or enchantress followers, and then they’ll do even better.

For Season 25, focus on builds all about Punish, Slash, Bombardment, and Thorns. They’ll synergize well with the Thorns of the Invoker set.

Monk

As a class, Monk combines the holy charms of Crusader and the speed of a Demon Hunter, making them a surprisingly sturdy and effective class. During Season 24, Monk was hands-down the best class. Though they aren’t always in the first place, they are always one of the best because of their wave-clearing and survival capabilities. After all, it eventually becomes valuable to be able to stand in the middle of a monster horde and survive.

For Season 25, try your hand at builds built around Sweeping Wind, with a dash of Tail Kick, Tempest Rush, or Wave of Light. Not only is it fun, but also it goes well with the upcoming Monkey King’s Garb gear set.

Wizard

Even if Wizards can be glass cannons, they are the burst damage champions of the game. The kind of insane damage output that you can accomplish as the Wizard makes them an easy top-tier option every season, regardless of the meta. They aren’t as durable as other classes, but they have very powerful synergies between their abilities, from Archon lovers to ice mage fanatics. Just be careful of avoiding ending up the center of monster hordes.

For Season 25, look into builds centered around the Disintegrate skill. Fun fact: It’s the writer of this article’s favorite ability as a Wizard main. So, guess who’s excited about this season’s Firebird’s Finery gear set?
