Welcome everyone to our Gauntlet Guide, Tier List and New Writers update post! We've been quiet for a little bit, but for good reason. Behind the scenes, we've been getting ready for the Gauntlet, which is finally coming out today! With the Gauntlet, we have our new Resource Guide along with a new Tier List. Both of which will get updates as we learn more. Lastly, the Maxroll Diablo 4 Team extends a Hell-ish welcome to THREE new writers for the branch Lucky Luciano, M1PY and Ava!

Gauntlet Guide

The Gauntlet brings a new mode to play to compete against your friends, Clan, and the world! There are a lot of things, small and large, to keep in mind while smashing enemies inside as well as prior to entering. We got you covered in our Gauntlet and Leaderboard Overview linked below.

Gauntlet Tier List

Like clockwork, with the addition of a new system or mode...there comes a new Tier List. This is a preliminary ranking of builds based on OVERALL performance of a specific build against another specific builds of the SAME CLASS. We need to stress that Leaderboards in game only measure any one class against itself, so we did the same in our tier list.

In order to find the Gauntlet specifics for a build you are playing, go to the Endgame Progression & Variants section and look for the Gauntlet variant as seen below:

New Team Writers

It's always an exciting time when new "Fresh Meat!" joins a Maxroll branch. These three are no exception! We here on the Diablo 4 Team extend a fiery welcome, and hope you enjoy their content here as well. Go easy on those support tickets for their content for a week, then go nuts : D

Lucky Luciano

Lucky is a lifelong Diablo fan, having played Diablo 2 consistently more than half of his lifetime. In the daytime he works as a Senior Strategy Manager in the finance industry and on evenings/weekends he moonlights as a Diablo speedrunner and content creator. With advanced degrees in both Business and Finance, Lucky brings a highly analytical mindset to the game and makes every second of playtime count with maximum efficiency. He holds world records in both Diablo 4 and Diablo 2 and just this season was the number 1 Rogue in the world to hit level 100 in Diablo 4. His focus on the Maxroll team will be contributing to Rogue resource materials and hosting community events, which he has a long history of organizing across many Diablo titles.


M1PY is a seasoned Diablo player and content creator from Germany. Being of competitive nature, he led Juice Blasters EU throughout multiple successful years in Diablo 3 and participated in cutting edge mythic raiding during Legion in WoW. As a passionate theorycrafter M1PY always strives to create the most optimized builds possible, especially for his favorite class in Diablo 4: Rogue. When not playing games, he likes to geek about new PC hardware and learn facts about ancient history.


My name is Avarilyn, or Ava for short, and I'm a theorycrafter who specializes in analysis of in game data. I work as a teacher by trade, and a part of what I do is because I love educating people in subjects I'm interested in. I'm excited to formally join the diablo 4 team, and I will primarily focus on providing my findings for our content creators and produce technical articles regarding game mechanics for Maxroll.

The Gauntlet is Now Open!

With that said, head over to our Discord and select the D4 role in #roles to stay up to date with our content development to make the most of your Season 3 experience!
