The Barbarian's variety makes it an intriguing class. Historically, the class has been tagged to fill the support role and this is still the case. But with extreme mobility and tankiness, there are other avenues for the character.
This installment allows the Barbarian to finally unleash some legitimate DPS builds in PvP and PvE in addition to the new directions. There's something for everyone with this class, it's just a matter of finding out which something is most preferable to each gamer.
Those who go against a Crusader have a few options, none of them are good. They can run away from their teammates and get picked off alone. They can stay together and get whipped around by the Crusader. Or they can fight back and watch their attacks glace off of the character fruitlessly. This is far from a PvP-only class. The Crusader thrives in PvE situations with multiple damage, tanking, and healing skills. The right build can achieve heights that most free-to-play gamers couldn't ordinarily achieve.
The Demon Hunter is in a golden era right now. The class has always been solid when it comes to clearing out massive quantities of monsters but often didn't have the survival or finishing power to compete on the leaderboards with the best of the best.
The puzzle appears to be solved as the class now dominates in just about every facet of Diablo Immortal. This isn't reserved for Challenge Rifts, the battlegrounds are also a very nasty place to run into a Demon Hunter.

The Wizard has always been a damage-dealing machine. While the class is still not a smart choice for tanks, the mobility is off of the charts. In PvP, the Wizard can even go entirely invisible while doing laps around their opponents.
As a damage-dealer, the Wizard can handle mobs and bosses simultaneously, amplifying their utility in Challenge Rifts. Pro players that love an active class have a home with the Wizard.
Quests and Secrets
A simple guide is worth its weight in gold. At times, there are progression points blocked by a puzzle or a tough boss fight. Can't beat it? Can't move forward? Gamers who get blocked by these obstacles have choices: quit, try for hours until they get it right, or use a guide.
