After choosing your server and Demon Hunter class in Diablo Immortal, it’s finally time to dive into the action and start a new adventure in the turbulent lands of the game. The first minutes and even the first hours of the game are pretty straightforward, as new skills are unlocked as you level up. But you’ll end up with more skills than available slots, and you’ll have to choose.
You’ll find or unlock your first legendary items a little later, and it gets even more complicated. Here is a relatively simple first build, with the skills we recommend you use and the most useful legendary items during the leveling phase, either alone or in a group.
Main Attack: Crossbow Shot
Ability 1: Multishot
Ability 2: Repellant Shot, to be replaced by Sentinel at level 28
Ability 3: Rain of Vengeance (Level 3)
Skill 4: Strafe (level 8) to be replaced by Acrobatics at level 15 to gain mobility and survivability. Many builds drop this ability for Vengeance (level 50) later on. But it is not a very good option during the leveling phase.
Skill rotation is Sentinel > Rain of Vengeance > Multishot until stacks are depleted. Keep using Crossbow Shots simultaneously, and you can also move while shooting.
It’s unlikely that you’ll find all of these items while leveling up, but it can sometimes justify changing a skill. Remember to improve your equipment as much as possible. Even if it is not legendary, you can transfer all this to the new objects you will find and equip later.
The vision of the Lost – Vengeance has its duration extended by 0.2 seconds per enemy killed, up to an additional 2.4 seconds.
Heart of Vengeance: Reduces the cooldown of Vendetta by 15%.
Skystriker’s Pauldrons: Rain of Vengeance summons a shadowy beast that throws bombs.
Coff’s Relentless Fury – During Vengeance, every two primary attacks, a rocket is launched.
Primary Weapon :
Flamespite – Multishot sets enemies on fire and deals bonus damage.
Left Hand – Battle Pass Rank 10 gives you a choice between several Legendaries for the Left Hand, and we recommend choosing The Hungry – Your crossbow shots will now pierce targets and hit additional targets.
Focus on damage (tourmaline, red gem) and armor penetration (sapphire, blue gem).
Unless you invest large sums of money, you won’t get many chances to choose your legendary gems or optimize them during the leveling phase. Use what you find at the moment.
General Demon Hunter Tips
The Demon Hunter class has the most single-target damage, making it ideal for defeating bosses. It even has good area damage options, but it doesn’t come close to the proficiency that others have. To maximize your damage potential, you need always to use your basic attack while slotting your skill usage between shots.
Despite these regrets, it is one of the most accessible classes to play. Because it has low mobility and is highly fragile, be careful with your positioning, so you don’t get shot down quickly. The Demon Hunter doesn’t offer exciting bonuses in a party environment and doesn’t have crowd control. That is, it’s a class that we can categorize as “selfish,” but that in itself is not a bad thing.
How to level up the Demon Hunter?
The tip is valid for any Diablo Immortal class: do the story missions until you get to a point where you need to fulfill some requirements to progress. Generally, this requirement is about having reached a certain level, so we recommend completing Battle Pass missions, which offer a lot of experience. This would be the fastest way to level up, but it’s not necessarily the most interesting.
If you’re looking for a more fluid experience, we recommend sticking with the story quests and embarking on optional activities whenever they arise, which include dungeons and lairs. That way, the chance of you getting to crash at a certain point is lower, and the game flow becomes more natural.
