Diablo 4: Best Healer, Health Potions & Gems

The following is my take on the Healer Class in Diablo 4 that I customized myself as here isn't any healer class in-game!

With the variety of Classes available, there aren’t any Diablo 4 Best Healer classes. Instead, the players utilize the healing factor using different skills or items. Although not as good at healing as a dedicated Healing Class would have been, these skills and items do the job perfectly. 

Key Takeaways
  • There is no Dedicated Healer Class found within Diablo 4.
  • Each Class has a few healing abilities.
  • The Barbarian has the highest healing compared to others, making them the most durable class.
  • Druids can last longer in fights thanks to the different healing abilities available.
  • Most of the Necromancer’s abilities heal the corpses raised, and a few heal the Necromancer too.
  • Rogue and Sorceress are the worst classes for healing.
  • Apart from these abilities, the Potions and Gems are useful for healing.

Best Diablo 4 Classes For Healer Playstyle

As stated above, no dedicated Diablo 4 Best Healer Class exists. Instead, each class heals itself using different skills and items. Players can utilize that to ensure they can sustain longer in fights. 

Barbarian

The Best Healer Build In Diablo 4.

  • Why I Chose This: I chose the following build due to its high damage and its ability to tank damage while healing. 
Skill nameAbility TypeDescription
Invigorating FuryUltimateHeal for 3% of your Maximum Life for each 100 Fury spent
Enhanced Lunging StrikeBasicLunging Strike deals 30% increased damage and Heals you for 2% Maximum Life (1) when it damages a Healthy enemy.
Tactical Iron SkinDefensiveWhile Iron Skin is active, Heal for 10% of the Barrier's original amount as Life per second.
Raid LeaderBrawlingYour Shouts also Heal allies for 1% of their Maximum Life per second.
Fighter's RuptureWeapon MasteryHitting at least 1 enemy with Rupture heals you for 15% of your Maximum Life.

The Barbarian is said to be the strongest Class in Diablo 4. For that reason, Barbarian needs to have the most sustain.

If you take a look at Barbarian’s Skills, you’ll note that most of these have the ‘attack enemy to get healed’ factor. That is because Barbarian will often be in between enemy lines trying to deal with great damage and tank that damage simultaneously. That is why his skills are of such a nature.

In my opinion, if you want to go for a healer build, then Barbarian is your best choice.

  • Provides a good amount of healing.
  • Can take some damage and survive.
  • Not as good as a real healer should be.

Druid

  • Why I Chose This: Druid has what it takes to heal while doing a good amount of damage to the opponents. 
Skill nameAbility TypeDescription
Enhanced ShredCoreShred gains 30% Attack Speed and Heals for 2% of your maximum Life if an enemy is struck.
Preserving Debilitating RoarDefensiveDebilitating Roar also heals you for 4% of your Maximum Life each second for its duration.
MendingWrathWhile in Werebear form, you receive 5% additional Healing from all sources.
Prime LacerateUltimateEach time Lacerate deals a Critical Strike, Heal for 3% of your Maximum Life.
Circle of LifeUltimateNature Magic skills that consume Spirit restore {1/2/3}% of your maximum Life.
Blood HowlDefensiveShapeshift into a Werewolf and howl furiously, restoring 20.0% of your Maximum Life.

The Druid is a shapeshifter. He often changes into different animals, such as the Werewolf or Werebear. That allows Druid to utilize their unique skills to deal serious damage. Druid often uses its melee weapons to deal damage to the closer enemies.

  • Can do good damage despite a healer build.
  •  Shapeshift-specific abilities will heal you over time.
  • The early game progression will be pretty slow.

Necromancer

The Best Build For Healing With Passive Abilities.

  • Why I Chose This: I chose the following Necromancer build as its passive abilities also provide healing. 
Skill nameAbility TypeDescription
Enhanced Blood SurgeCoreBlood Surge Heals you for 2.5% of your Maximum Life when drawing blood from enemies. If 4 or more enemies are drawn from, then Heal for an additional 2.5% of your Maximum Life.
Blood MistCorpse & Macabre (1st Cluster)Disperse into a bloody mist, becoming Immune for 3 seconds. Your Movement Speed is reduced by 20% and you periodically deal X damage to enemies and Healing for 0.5% of your Maximum Life.
Abhorrent Iron MaidenCurseHeal for 5% of your Maximum Life when an enemy dies while afflicted with Iron Maiden.
Gruesome MendingCorpse & Macabre (2nd Cluster)While below 50% Life, you receive 10% more Healing from all sources.

The Necromancer, as the name suggests, resurrects different corpses in battles to assist you in defeating enemies. The resurrected corpses are the fallen enemies or risen using special abilities. They are the main ability of the Necromancer as they can’t sustain in fights.

  • Resurrect corpses to fight alongside you.
  • Healing is pretty good.
  • Passive abilities increase the healing capabilities.
  • Can’t do much damage on its own.

Rogue

The Best For Moderate Healing But High Damage.

  • Why I Chose This: Rogue is normally pretty weak, but the following build will ensure you stay in a fight for longer. 
Skill nameAbility TypeDescription
Siphoning StrikesCoreHeal for 1% of your Maximum Life (1) when you Critically Strike Close enemies.
Enhanced FlurryCoreEach time Flurry damages a Crowd Controlled or Vulnerable enemy, you are Healed for 1% of your Maximum Life, up to 12% Maximum Life per cast.
Mending ObscuritySubterfugeWhile Stealthed, you Heal for 1% Maximum Life (1) per second.

The Rogue is an assassin with command over close-quarters and ranged combat. Their high agility allows them to get in and out of fights in the blink of an eye. The best healing option for Rogue is to utilize the Healing Potions. I didn’t have a good experience as a healer with Rogue, so I won’t recommend using the class.

  • Good combos.
  • Plenty of healing skills.
  • Can’t stay in the fight for much longer.
  • You would need healing potions.

Sorceress

The Worst Healer Build In Diablo 4.
Sorceress Class

  • Why I Chose This: Sorcerers in Diablo 4 are hard to play solo, so the following build will ensure some amount of healing so you can stay longer on the battlefield. 
Skill nameAbility TypeDescription
Shimmering Flame ShieldDefensiveFlame Shield heals you for 50% of your missing Life.
WarmthUltimateEvery 1 second, you Heal for 0.3% of your Maximum Life (0.1) for each Nearby Burning enemy. Healing increased to 0.6% from Bosses.

If players are looking for the Glass Canon, the Sorceress is the best way. They are the High-Risk, High-Reward type class of Diablo 4. They aren’t durable on their own, so they must be taken care of, especially in the early game. However, I wouldn’t recommend using this class as a healer.

  • Deals great elemental damage.
  • Severely lacks durability.
  • Provides limited Healing.

Healing Potions

I would recommend you start with Healing potions. It is named the Weak Healing Potion. As you progress, you will unlock new and better potions, eventually making your potions better and more reliable. I didn’t have a good early game start with the healer build, so potions are necessary. 

So, here are all of the potions and how you can unlock them:

20x Angelbreath
10x Fiend Rose
20x Grave Dust
36x Blightshade
20x Demon's Heart
36x Howler Moss

The Healing Potions can heal a chunk of your health with a single use. They are great for the last resort. But, if your healing skills are on cooldown, you should use it as soon as your HP drops below 50%. That will ensure that you stay alive in the fight.

Gems

Like the Healing Potions, a few Gems in Diablo 4 allow you to heal yourself directly and indirectly. And like the Healing Potions, you can upgrade them too to ensure you get the best out of them. For now, as I am considering the ‘Healing’ aspect of the Gems, the best ones to consider are the Skull Gems.

Here are their stats and upgradability table:

18,000 Gold3x Skull
Royal SkullLevel 60Weapon: +14 Life On Kill
Armor: +5% Healing Received
Jewelry: +200 Armor
50,000 Gold3x Flawless Skull

As you can see, the Skull Gems provide a specific amount of Life on Kill and increase the Healing Received. They can be great if you want to sustain longer in fights.

Final Words

That was all for my Diablo 4 Best Healer guide. As there is no healer, it doesn’t mean that you should give up on playing Solo or anything. There are still great Classes that you can try out. Check out the Beginner’s Guide to ensure you get the best out of the game.

If you were one of the Beta players, you would get your hands on the Spectral Charge Mount. That is a great trophy for players waiting for a new installment. Check out all the different Dungeons that you can visit. Don’t forget to go to the Best Farming Spots to get the best gear.
