The best offensive melee characters in Diablo 2 are the Barbarian and Paladin. Both classes offer unique playthroughs centered around melee combat but with some notable differences. 


Barbarians gain access to powerful melee attacks and abilities to increase their overall attack output, making them an excellent choice for those who love melee. Using a unique skill tree, the Barbarian class can also increase their damage with certain weapons. If you love charging in and causing havoc, the Barbarian might be the melee class for you.


Paladins are in the same boat as barbarians, but they also have great defense thanks to specific Offensive and Defensive Aura abilities. If you are looking for a great offensive and defensive in-between, the Paladin might be a good choice for you. The Paladin can also buff their allies, making them an excellent choice when playing with friends.

There are several classes in Diablo 2 Resurrected that have access to powerful magic abilities. The best magic users are the Necromancer, Sorceress, and Druid


Druid is a magic class that has a bit of everything from other classes and some unique abilities. For instance, they command the power of nature with powerful ranged attacks and can shapeshift into various animals to attack foes. Druids can also summon animal allies, making them a great alternative to the Necromancer for magic users. 


Necromancers are a great magic-user class for those who want to summon powerful undead allies and sit back while the undead do all the frontline combat. Necromancers also gain access to some powerful debuffs called Curses, and some magic ranged attacks, making them an excellent choice for magic users. 


The Sorceress class is an excellent choice for magic users who want to deal with powerful AOE magic attacks. Sorceresses can also weaken enemies with the Static Field ability, making her a great choice to play with other classes. The class is also easy to understand and play, so it is recommended as a starting class for those who enjoy playing magic characters.
