UPDATE: The Diablo 3 Season 24 release date is coming TODAY! The official start time countdown is on for sure, but make sure to take some time to get ready for the new season with our guide to leveling up fast. Good luck!
Original Story - The Diablo 3 Season 24 start time is almost upon us and that means a whole new assessment of the best classes and builds to get stuck into.
Season 24 is known as 'Ethereal Memory' and whilst the new season is not due to start until Friday evening, some of the games most experienced players already have a solid handle on which builds are worth playing when it launches.
That's thanks to the games PTR (Public Test Realm) which gives players an insight into the upcoming buffs and nerfs before it hits live servers on PS4, Xbox, PC or Nintendo Switch.
In Season 24, the new Ethereal Weapons have had a big say in which classes and builds have come out on top. Compared to Season 23, there have been quite a few changes.
Based on the PTR over the past few weeks, some of the games best experts can eloquently determine which class builds are best for the upcoming new season.

As we mention, an upshot of the games pre-release testing - aside from sorting all those bugs and issues - is that it gives expert players like Rhykker (who is a prominent youtube and authoritative member of the Diablo 3 community) a chance to test builds before they release.
That's why we have a fairly solid idea as to the Top 10 Best Builds for Diablo 3 Season 24.
If you want a proper deep dive, Rhykker has pulled together a video (above) that runs the rule over the best builds and classes for Season 24.
Better still, the video doesn't just outline the top 10, but also the builds which are sitting in the A-F tiers which might not be worth your time.
So you'll also know which classes and builds you should be avoiding in Season 24. It's fair to say that the Angry Chicken Witch Doctor is not worth playing with.
"These are the best builds for Diablo 3 patch 2.7.1 season 24 for solo GR pushing." Rhykker's youtube description explains.
"Monk builds, barbarian builds, crusader builds, witch doctor builds, demon hunter builds, necromancer builds, wizard builds... Everything currently end-game viable, ranked in order of power."
As with all of Rhykker's Tier lists, all of the builds that have been tested are T16 (Torment 16) viable.
The video lasts around 20 minutes, so it's a lengthy watch but does provide a comprehensive overview of the full tier list for Season 24. Althought you might be more interested in just the top 10.
