Rogue is an amazing class in Diablo 4 that can have several different builds. No one build is truly better than the others; they are all excellently different in their own ways. Rogues are masters of backstabbing, archery, trap setting, poison, shadows, and movement, all of which can make for great builds in Diablo 4.

Best Diablo 4 Rogue Build

The best known Rogue build in Diablo 4 so far is the Shadow Flurry build. This build focuses on high damage attacks, high mobility, and creating shadows. With this combo, you’ll eliminate enemies very quickly, be hard to hit, and deflect incoming damage thanks to your shadows.
