With Season 22 just a few hours away, it's time to look at which class to play and the rankings.
Solo Greater Rift Push Build Rankings for Season 22
If you like to play alone and would like to push rifts, we recommend you the following builds for each class, with more builds listed in our solo Greater Rift pushing guide.
Barbarian: Wrath of the Wastes Rend Build Crusader: Thorns Bomrardment Build Demon Hunter: GoD Hungering Arrow Build Monk: Patters of Justice Tempest Rush Build Necromancer: Masquerade Bone Spear Build Witch Doctor: Mundunugu Spirit Barrage Build Wizard: LoD Hydra Build
Speed Farming Tier Lists for Season 22
These are your best choices if your prioritize speed-clearing bounties, Greater Rifts, or Torment 16 standard rifts in Season 22. For more details, check out our speed farming and rankings guide.
Necromancer: LoD Singularity Mage Build + Masquerade Bone Spear Build Demon Hunter: Unhallowed Essence Multishot Build + GoD Hungering Arrow Demon Hunter Build A-Tier
Monk: PoJ Tempest Rush Build + Sunwuko Wave of Light Build Barbarian: Wrath of the Wastes Rend Build B-Tier
Witch Doctor: Mundunugu Spirit Barrage Build C-Tier
Wizard: Vyr Archon Wizard Build Crusader: Aegis of Valor Heaven's Fury Build
The Group Meta for Season 22
Determining the exact meta is more complex, which is why we're listing class roles at which the classes excel in Season 22. You can find a more in-depth look at how individual classes perform in a group environment in our group meta overview.
Best Trash Killers for Season 22 will be Thorns Bombardment Crusader, LoD Poison Scythe Necromancer, and Spirit Barrage Witch Doctor. Best Rift Guardian Killer compositions revolve around DPS builds that focus on single-target damage, mainly stacking the Bane of the Stricken gem. Best at Grouping are Support Barbarians with their Ancient Spear and other classes that utilize items like The Executioner and Strongarm Bracers. Best Tank Support for Season 22 goes to Inna Monk! The best class for Experience Farming is Wrath of the Wastes Rend Barbarian since Barbarians can move extremely fast while dealing consistently high AoE damage. Season 22 heralds the return of so-called "rat runs" that consist of 2 LoD Singularity Mage Necromancers, 1 Support Necromancer, and a Support Barbarian. We hope you will enjoy Season 22, and we'll see you in the game!
