↖ Sorcerer: Fireball
The Fireball Sorcerer has been a fan-favourite skill, finally getting some long-overdue attention.

These buffs apply to all Sorcerer specs, which is excellent news for endgame survivability. The Paragon board will improve the Sorcerer's survivability, making them more competitive with other classes.
↖ Sorcerer: Meteor
The Meteor Sorcerer will benefit from the same buffs as the Fireball Sorcerer, making it a strong endgame contender. With passive buffs to Fireball and Meteor, along with fire passives, this build should become powerful and exciting to play.
↖ Sorcerer: Firewall
Another fire-based build, the Firewall Sorcerer, will also be worth trying out. The new Season Journey aspect will be helpful in progression, making it a solid choice for endgame content as well.
↖ Sorcerer: Chain Lightning and Ball Lightning Builds
Chain Lightning will receive numerous buffs from the skill tree and legendary aspects, making it a good leveling skill. Similarly, Ball Lightning builds will become more viable with the gravitational aspect changing from a damage reduction to a damage increase.
↖ Barbarian: The Walking Arsenal
The Walking Arsenal Barbarian build revolves around the key passive "Walking Arsenal." With this passive getting a buff, players can benefit from different weapon types for each skill. A popular version uses Upheaval, Plunging Strike, Death Blow, and Iron Maelstrom for a high-damage and exciting playstyle.
↖ Barbarian: Double Swing
Double Swing is getting a massive 25% damage buff, making it a strong contender for Barbarian builds. With further buffs to Frenzy and the Battle Trance amulet, the Double Swing Barbarian could become an exciting and powerful option.
↖ Barbarian: Charge
The Charge Barbarian will receive significant damage buffs to the skill tree and the Aspect of the Ancestral Charge. This build could potentially outshine the Hota Barb and become a popular choice in Season 1.
↖ Necromancer: Sever Variant and Buffed Decay Aspect
The Sever variant of the Necromancer will receive numerous buffs from various legendary aspects. The Aspect of Empowering Reaper and Aspect of Decay will improve Shadow builds, including Infinitum's Blight, Corpse Explosion variants, and even Shadow Minions. The Aspect of Exposed Flesh buff will be a significant boost for Necromancer builds, allowing skills like Sever and Blight to benefit from its effects.
↖ Necromancer: Minion Builds Improvements
Minion builds, like the Reaper Skeletons and Blight variants, will become more viable due to specific Elite mechanic fixes. This change will make minions, especially Skeletons, less likely to die easily, making them more useful in various builds.
↖ Druid and Rogue
The Druid and Rogue classes are already quite strong, and while there aren't many changes coming in the upcoming patch, players can still enjoy their current viable builds. Be cautious about falling for traps with certain skills, and always explore new possibilities to maximize your enjoyment in Season 1.
With the major patch arriving in Season 1 of Diablo 4, players will have the opportunity to try out new and improved builds for various classes. The Sorcerers, Barbarians, Necromancers, and other classes will see significant changes, making them more competitive and enjoyable to play.
