Diablo 4 Best Healers [Classes And Items Detailed]

Having played Diablo 4 for more than 80+ hours, I can provide the best information on the Best Healer.

diablo 4 best healer

Diablo 4 gives the players the option to choose from a plethora of classes. Unfortunately, it does not have an exclusive healer class. This might be off-putting for some players who like to go for those support builds or a self-sufficient build; however, rest assured because you can heal and provide utility for your teams through different items and skills.

Key Takeaways

  • Diablo 4 does not have a specific Healer class.
  • You can utilize other classes‘ healing skills or potions or gems to heal in fights.
  • The Barbarian Class is arguably the best Healing Class due to its numerous healing abilities, which also have an AOE effect.
  • I also recommend using Skull Gems, which grants you Life on Kill and increases the healing you receive.

The Necromancer Class

Best Minions-User Class

Why did I Choose Necromancer?

Necromancer doesn’t have a lot of Healing abilities, but they can survive thanks to many of their minion summonings.

One of the strongest classes currently in Diablo 4 is the Necromancer. This class enables you to resurrect monsters to do your bidding.

Necromancer Class

The class is structured to fight from the backlines, so they have little healing prowess. Their kit does allow them to have some sustain in fights. This is extremely important as, in my playthrough experience, the necromancers are defenseless without their summons and, hence, need the additional healing to sustain themselves somewhat.

Abhorrent Iron MaidenCurse AttackFor every enemy killed while affected by Iron Maiden, heal up to 5% Maximum Life.
Enhanced Blood, SurgeCore AttackThis ability rewards you with 2.5% Maximum Health upon drawing your enemy’s blood. If you manage to draw from more than 3 enemies, you heal an additional 2.5% Maximum Life.
Blood MistActive AbilityTurns into a bloody mist and disappears, becoming un-targetable for three seconds. You deal 2% more damage to foes and heal for 0.5% of your maximum life. However, your movement speed is lowered by 20%.
Gruesome MendingPassive AbilityIf your Life falls below 50%, all healing is increased by 10%.

Note: These abilities are highly integral for the necromancer build and allow him to have some form of sustain in fights. However, this much sustain isn’t enough to fight on the frontlines, so always make sure you stay back and only use this in the most adverse cases.

  • High AoE Damage.
  • Sustainability and Support by Summons.

  • Vulnerable without Minions.
  • Less Healing Attributes.
  • Bad Mobility.

The Sorcerer Class

Best Late Game Class in Diablo 4.

Why did I choose Sorcerer?

They can survive the late-game tough situations and have a few decent healing skills in their arsenal.

Another alternative for the best healer class is the Sorceress Class. It is one of the most rewarding and riskiest classes in the game.

Sorcerer Diablo 4
Sorcerer Class Selection | Captured By: VeryAli Gaming

They deal enormous elemental damage and are highly effective the longer you play. They must scale up and are very weak in the early game. Besides their damage, Sorceress is frail and needs all the healing they can get.

Shimmering Flame ShieldDefensive AbilityIt heals you for 50% of your Missing Life. Hence, the lower your health is when you use it, the more you heal.
WarmthUltimate Passive AbilityYou heal for 0.3% of your maximum life per second for every surrounding burning enemy. If they are Bosses, then the healing is increased to 0.6%.

These abilities ensure that the Sorceress Class has some ways to self-sustain during the early game and doesn’t get one shot by the enemies. The Shimmering Flame Shield is instrumental if timed correctly and can change the outcome of a battle.

  • Ideal for game battles.
  • Decent durability.

  • Less Healing skills.
  • Struggles in the beginning levels.

The Barbarian Class

Best High Damage Class in Diablo 4.

Why did I Choose This?

It is easy to learn and has many healing attributes that require you to fight to heal a chunk of your character’s health. It can also heal allies.

The Barbarian class builds have been making waves in the community as one of the fan favorites. This is due to the insane physical damage that the class provides. The Barbarian class acts as a bruiser that deals tons of damage but also has to stand at the frontlines and soak in the damage from the enemies.

Barbarian Class

To ensure that the Barbarian Class can withhold the enemy’s damage, they need to have some self-sustain. This is because the mobs become more brutal as you climb through the game and can even one-shot your character.

To deal with this, the Barbarian class skillset is designed to provide self-support and sufficiency, making them arguably the closest thing possible to a healer class.

Enhanced Lunging StrikeBasic AbilityThe ability boosts your damage by 30% and heals 2% of your Maximum Life upon hitting an enemy.
Tactical Iron SkinDefensive AbilityHeals for 10% of the Barrier's original amount as Life per second when Iron Skin is active.
Raid LeaderAOE AbilityWith your shouts, this ability allows you to heal your allies by 1% of their Maximum Life every second.
Invigorating FuryUltimate AbilityFor every 100 furies you spend, you heal up to 3% of your Maximum Life.
Fighter’s RuptureWeapon MasteryYou heal 15% of your Maximum Life upon every rupture hit on different enemies.

I recommend these skills because they mesh well with the Barbarian playstyle and force him to fight to heal himself. This perfectly encapsulates the barbarian class as those frontline damage dealers who aren’t hesitant to take damage.

  • High Damage.
  • Heals Allies.
  • Many Healing Skills.

  • Need to fight to use healing skills.

The Rogue Class

Best Class High DPS and Solo Play. 

Why did I choose Rogue?

The Rogue is a stealth and solo player, thanks to its versatile skills and healing abilities that allow it to survive independently.

The Rogue class is the next contender on my list as a potential healer class. The rogue class is an assassin class providing high mobility and damage.

Rogue Diablo 4

The class provides good offensive and defensive abilities that you can use to one-shot enemies or disengage. The class also provides numerous abilities that you can use to heal while you reassess your enemies to try again.

Enhanced FlurryCore Active AbilityYou receive healing worth 1% of your maximum life, up to 12% maximum life per cast, each time Flurry deals damage to a crowd-controlled or wounded enemy.
Siphoning StrikesCore Passive AbilityWhenever you Critically Strike a nearby enemy, you regain 1% of your maximum life.
Mending ObscurityPassive AbilityYou heal for 1% of your maximum life every second you are in stealth.

These skills work extremely well with how the rogue class plays out. You can shroud yourself using a Smoke Screen and heal yourself through Mending Obscurity whenever you are in a pickle.

  • High DPS
  • Good mobility.
  • Can heal itself easily.

  • Not many healing options.
  • Highly Vulnerable.

The Druid Class

Best Tanky Class in Diablo 4.

Why do I recommend Druid?

It has a high damage output with a tanky build and several healing options on the battlefield without relying on anyone else.

Last but not least, I have the Druid Class, which showcases exceptional prowess in battle. Having the ability to shapeshift, the Druid class can turn into werewolves and other animals and can take advantage of the unique attack and attributes of the animals.

Druid Class

They are known for being the most diverse class in how they attack and plan things. Furthermore, Druids can also cast spells and use weapons against enemies to heighten their damage and ensure their victory in a fight.

Enhanced ShredCore AbilityThe ability shred is buffed by 30% attack speed and heals you for 2% Maximum Life upon hitting an enemy.
Preserving Debilitating RoarDefensive AbilityGain 4% Maximum Life for every second the ability is active for.
Circle of LifeUltimate AbilitySkills from Nature Magic that drain Spirit replenish up to 3% of your maximum Life.
Prime LacerateUltimate AbilityRecover 3% of your Maximum Life after each Critical Strike delivered by Lacerate.
MendingPassive AbilityHealing from all sources is increased by 10% in werebear form.

From my experience, these abilities make the Druid Class one of the most all-rounder classes in Diablo 4 and one of the contenders for the closest to being the Healer type. Their biggest drawback is that their skills don’t provide any sustainability for their party/allies but only for themselves. 

These are the classes and their corresponding abilities that can provide you with healing. You must decide which class fits your playstyle better and can work as the healer class. Apart from the classes, various items and gems grant you healing.

If you have already selected a class that doesn’t have many healing abilities, worry not. The items below will help you sustain yourself in fights and come out as the victor.

  • High Damage Output.
  • Tanky Build.
  • Several Healing Skills.

  • Only heals itself.
  • Slow movement speed.

Best Healing Items

Diablo 4 provides players with items that can help them heal in fights. Knowing how hard the bosses get at the later half of the game, Diablo 4 has numerous healing potions, starting from the Weak Healing potion, which is given to all new players in case they don’t have a healer beside them.

The Healing potions require crafting materials, so refer to the chart below whenever you go to explore and watch for the materials you need.

Item NameRequired LevelRequired MaterialDescription

10 Forgotten Soul

These are all the healing potions available in Diablo 4. As the potency of the potions increases, so do their cost and the required materials. The materials become hard to find as you go down the table; hence, keep your eyes peeled whenever you explore.

In my opinion, the best time to use them is when your skills are on cooldown, and you are below 50% Life. In such scenarios, don’t hesitate to chug one of the potions down and stay alive until your healing skills come up.

Best Healing Gems

Lasting, I have the best healing gems to use for your build. The skull gems are the most useful for healing, so pick them up. They can provide you with an avenue of escape and can even save your life in dire situations.

Furthermore, they can be upgraded, so make sure you avail of that facility whenever you can. You must ensure a good gold balance to unlock the later skulls, as they are quite pricey.

Gem NameRequired LevelRequired MaterialDescription
Crude Skull15-+3% Healing Received+100 Armor
+2 Life on Kill
Chipped Skull20 3 Crude Skull
4500 Gold
+3.5% Healing Received
+125 Armor
+5 Life on Kill

+8 Life on Kill
Flawless Skull50 3 Skull

+4.5% Healing Received
+175 Armor
+11 Life on Kill
Royal Skull603 Flawless Skull
50000 Gold
+5% Healing Received
+200 Armor
+14 Life on Kill

These are the Gems capable of heightening your healing prowess and giving you a self-sustaining edge in a fight. These gems might not seem as much, but I believe they make a difference.

I suggest using them to farm a horde of monsters, as they provide additional Life on every kill. However, ensure you can have them in your Weapons and Armor to reap their healing prowess.

My Thoughts On Best Healer

All these skills, items, and Gems compensate you for lacking a specific healer class and provide you with utility for yourself. Every class has its own playstyle and ways to heal, so choose the best among them that aligns with your play style.
