D2R 2.6 Terror Zone Tier List - Best Terror Zones To Run For Max XP & Loots in Ladder Season 3

1 - D2R 2.6 Best Amazon Build: Plague Javezone

The Plague Javazon uses Death's Web with Poison facts or swaps to it to cheat out a ton of additional poison damage. With the Plague receiving a big buff, this build has gotten a lot stronger got a lot stronger. The budget version is actually pretty nutty for how cheap it is and how effective it is as well. Even if all you do is just farm Nightmare and then hell cows and you're somebody who can't get enough of that, we think that Plague javazon has a really nice place in the early game of the latter season to be able to survive and capitalize very well on all the different D2R charms and D2R magic swords that people are trying to buy up to get enough power so that they can transition into Terror zones. While with the expensive version,  this build can do P8 Chaos in minute.

2 - D2R 2.6 Best Paladin Build: Dragon Auradin FOH

This is the powerful holy fire auradin build that you could just AFK and go anywhere, that's using Fist of the Heavens as backup and additional AOE. This might be one of the most controller-friendly builds, considering you literally just leave conviction up all the time and you are either charging just casting happens regardless of whether or not you have a Target since it will auto Target for you, focusing down and targeting monsters with either Zeal or holy Bolt. The other cool thing about the build is that it's specifically built so that you don't have to swap out any gear depending on whether or not you need to go into different Terror zones etc. Fix our resistance and survivability and Mana issues with our mercenary, so while they're not doing a ton of damage they're definitely adding a little bit on targets that are a bit beefier but they're handling all of the accounting work for you.

The charge for mobility, this to the Fist of Heavens so you can clear out and add AOE damage, Zeal for tanky mobs, and then Holy Bolt for tanky mobs that you don't want to hit with your weapon. This build is succeeding at density clear and being able to put on a good amount of magic find even without Enigma equipped. That really satisfying auretic damage is the major contributor to how you're killing stuff and allow for an incredibly relaxed play style. While this build could definitely be optimized for damage output, the more damage and minus threads you put onto the build, the less magic find you're able to stack on it, and that Balancing act is what is so important for actually maximizing the potential of a density clearing build.

3 - Best D2R 2.6 Assassin Build: Hybrid Trap Assassin Build

If you are looking for an Assassin build for Season 3 of Diablo 2 Resurrected, this hybrid trap build will allow you to very easily farm in Hell and deal with immunes with very little equipment! This is a very good build on Assassin in order to start with trap and easily farm in the end game, but this build is very interesting because you'll have lightning fire and a bit of physical damage, and it will be very easy to destroy any immune in the end game. If you prefer a melee version to take advantage of the new ladder-only Mosaic runeword , go for the Martial Arts assassin! 

As you're playing an assassin, it will be easy to trade items from other players for example Assassin is much more simple to trade compared to a sorceress dodge. We'll be using fire blast lightning Sentry and Death Sentry in order to apply the elemental damage.

4 -  D2R 2.6 Best Barbarian Build: War Cry Singer Barb Build

This Barbarian actually never attacks with any weapons and on top of that, you can teleport around at lightning speed. The 200 FCR Singer Barbarian is not too item dependent and does not rely on the physical damage from weapons,  but only uses the War Cry to stun and do damage. Being that said, though it is not an optimal end-game build with lower damage than other builds, it is good to season starter option with an easier PvE playthrough than a standard melee build.

  • Dexterity: 53

  • Vitality: 276

  • Energy: 288

5 - D2R 2.6 Best Amazon Build: Bowazon with Hustle Runeword

In Patch 2.6 Ladder season 3, you can expect to enjoy using this new Hustle Runeword, it absolutely opens up the Bowazon class to just become again formidable and actually competitive on players 8. Bowazon with the Hustle runeword gets much-increased attack speed and pretty solid movement speed as well because you get burst of speed, so Burst of Speed plus Fanaticism, Might, and Pride how does that look with the Wind Force if you go that way, there are so many options to talk about, but here we are going to show you two builds that I've made that we think you should use in the end game for the Bowazon in D2R ladder season 3.
