What Is the Least-Played Class in Diablo IV?

Diablo IV isn’t exactly jam-packed full of classes for players to choose from. It launched with only five core classes—Barbarian, Sorcerer, Druid, Necromancer, and Rogue—and has the potential for more to come out in the future. Out of these five classes alone, which is the least-played class in Diablo IV?

Druid Doesn’t Get Much Love

Until we get more classes in Diablo IV through expansions and the like, it appears likely that the Druid is the least-played class in the game. Unfortunately, there is no confirmation or data from Blizzard Entertainment that gives an exact answer on this situation.

However, from what it seems on social media and my own experiences playing the game, I don’t see Druids all that often in Diablo IV. This isn’t uncommon, either, as Druid has been known to have this problem in the past.

It is a shame if this is the case since Druid has such a varied and interesting makeup this time around. But, unfortunately, classes like the Necromancer and Sorcerer are likely to be overwhelmingly popular.

And given the Barbarian’s ability to wield all weapon types, there are likely a fair number of players playing that class. As for the Rogue, it usually lands somewhere in the middle of the class population, so it is likely fine. The Druid is the odd one out in the end, most likely being the least-played class.

What Was the Least-Played Class in Past Games?

For reference, some of the past Diablo games can give us some indication of what the least-played class is. In Diablo II, for instance, the Druid was named by many as the least-played class around, alongside the Assassin. It appears that Diablo IV could be repeating that.

In the case of Diablo III, some on Reddit cite the Witch Doctor as the least favorite in the community, but that isn’t available yet in the latest mainline entry.

For now, at least, it looks like the Druid is likely the least-played class. But don’t let that stop you from checking out its wonderfully flexible gameplay and beast transformations.

Diablo IV is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Battle.net.
