Diablo 3 Tier List (Season 26): Best Solo Class Builds For New Season

Diablo 3 Tier List (Season 26): Best Solo Class Builds For New Season

What is the best build in Diablo 3 Season 26? That’s the key question players are asking now that the season is underway. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to the game or a seasoned pro, every new season creates a slight shuffling of the meta as well as the best builds and classes available in the game.

The best builds from last season might no longer be as powerful in the current season. With Blizzard experimenting with new seasonal features like Soul Shards, Ethereal Weapons and more.

Further down you can read our complete Diablo 3 Season 26 tier list for solo builds. It’ll guide you through the best S-Tier build options to utilise this season as well as some A-Tier and B-Tier options worth considering too.

Update - Diablo 3 Season 27 has reached the PTR for testing and will arrive on main servers fairly soon. We'll update this Diablo 3 Tier List again following the launch of Season 27.

Diablo 3 Season 26 Solo Tier List

Since there are just so many different builds available in Diablo 3, our tier list only runs through the best builds from S-Tier, A-Tier and B-Tier. Frankly, anything C-Tier or below is likely to be some of the more underwhelming builds this season and arguably not worth your time. If you do want a full rundown of the builds available from C-Tier to F-Tier then we suggest taking a look at Maxroll.gg where an army of Diablo 3 experts has created a full rundown of all tiers. Yes, including the infamous Angry Chicken Witch Doctor build.

As we mentioned, keep in mind that this tier list will likely change once again when Diablo 3 Season 27 is released. The best build of Season 26 might very well start tumbling down the tier list with a well placed nerf from the developers. For now, here’s a list of the best Solo builds in Diablo 3 Season 26.

Diablo 3 Season 26 Tier List Explained

Every season we also make sure to watch and defer to expert players like Rhykker to help us get a fairly solid idea as to the Top 10 Best Builds in Diablo 3. Though Rhykker spends most of his time producing content on YouTube, he also works closely with those Maxroll.gg experts to create a video deep dive of the top 10 builds each season.

Many of these builds will be the same as those mentioned in our tables above, but Rhykker also runs through the entire Season 26 tier list, starting at F-Tier and running all the way up to the S-Tier.  Everything is ranked in order of power and for solo greater rift pushing, with all builds T16 (Torment 16) viable.

The video lasts just less than 20 minutes, however, it provides a really comprehensive overview of the builds in Season 26, so is well worth a watch before you start the new season grind.
