  • Multishot: Fires a volley of arrows that deals damage to all enemies in a direction. Maximum 3 charges.
  • Daring Swing: Use a rope to swing to a nearby location, dealing damage to enemies along the way while unattackable for a maximum of 2 charges.

  • Weapon: Breath of Winter/Flamespite - Multishot fires either Frost (slowing) or Fire Arrows (incinerating) at enemies. Multishot cooldown is reduced by 10%.
  • Offhand: The Hungerer - Crossbow Shot now penetrates enemies and hits additional enemies. Damage is increased by 10%.
  • Helm: Cowl of Absolute Punishment - Increases Multishot damage by 10%.
  • Shoulder: Chillwrath Mantle - Daring Swing now shoots ice darts at the ground, creating an icy path that progressively deals damage and slows.

How to play Demon Hunter in Diablo Immortal

The gameplay with the demon hunter is kept relatively simple. Although the Demon Hunter is slower than the other classes, they are incredibly good at dishing out DPS while moving. Due to the long range and multishot, which is one of the best AoE skills in the game, you are almost never within reach of your opponents.
