Blizzard’s latest offering, Diablo 4, has been generating immense buzz, both within the gaming community and beyond. Now, amid Megan Fox reading eulogies and Whoopi Goldberg demanding the game be release on Mac, new insight has emerged about the most played class in the game: the Sorcerer.

In a casual reveal on Twitter by Rod Fergusson, the General Manager of Diablo disclosed this intriguing piece of information. The tweet read, “Pssst! I didn’t ask for permission to share this but I thought you might be interested to know that right now, the number 1 most played class in #DiabloIV is the Sorcerer/Sorceress! But you didn’t hear it from me. In case someone from PR or Marketing asks…”

While the revelation of Sorcerer class’s popularity is not utterly astonishing, it does come as a mild surprise. Notably, players grinding their way to level 100 have majorly done so as Barbarians. However, the Sorcerer class, along with the Druid class, is close behind.

Interestingly, despite its status as the most played class, the Sorcerer does not appear to be especially overpowered in the current game dynamics. Maxroll, a trusted resource for Diablo 4 builds, does not presently rank any Sorcerer build in the top-tier (S-Tier). As of now, this elite list is occupied by Barbarian, Rogue, Druid, and Necromancer builds.

These rankings are, of course, not set in stone and could change as players delve deeper into the game, unveiling new strategies and build possibilities. What remains to be seen is whether the Sorcerer’s reign of popularity endures or is overtaken by the grinding prowess of Barbarians, or perhaps another class yet to reveal its full potential.
