Within Diablo Immortal, your chosen class has the ability to tailor their skills, gear, and gems to better tackle whatever content you wish to take on. Here, you will find a brief overview of a variety of builds for the Demon Hunter class to assist you in solo or group content.

1.

Diablo Immortal Demon Hunter Builds

The Demon Hunter class offers multiple viable builds, but their individual power is relative to the task you are aiming to complete. The following guide will help you decide which build you should choose for your specific in-game goals.

2.

Demon Hunter Leveling Build

You should stick to this build for the duration of your leveling process — as you complete main quests and grind out the minor experience hurdles that unlock the next chapter of the story. Some deviation from this build is allowed as you experiment with the skills you unlock, but the choices made in the guide are meant to maximize your speed, efficiency, and overall power and will get you to max level effortlessly.

3.

Demon Hunter Crossbow Shot Solo Farming/Bounties Build

You should choose the Demon Hunter Crossbow Shot Solo Farming/Bounties Build when your goal is to get your daily tasks done on your own — such as the minor tasks from the Bounty board, the Shadow Contracts, the Side Quest daily activity, or Monster Essence grinding for Bestiary Page turn-ins. When in doubt, you can default to this build and expect reasonably good performance out of your character. It is designed to fit most PvE content done by a soloing Demon Hunter, allowing you to snipe down your enemies at a relentless pace — combining kill speed with movement efficacy.

While the build does not entirely rely on specific legendary powers, certain items will greatly assist its performance over others. The build benefits massively from high Vengeance Icon Vengeance uptime, as well as powers that amplify the effectiveness of Multishot  Icon Multishot and Crossbow Shot Icon Crossbow Shot — all of which comes from recommended legendaries further on in the guide.

4.

Demon Hunter Spinning Chakram Dungeon/Group Build

You should choose the Demon Hunter Spinning Chakram Dungeon Build when your goal is to grind one of the various Dungeons in the game with a group. Note that grouping for Dungeons is not necessary on the Normal game difficulty (applicable as you level), but will be mandatory when you get to the Hell difficulties — pushing you to eventually try out this build. The Spinning Chakram build is designed to tackle the vast majority of PvE content done by a Demon Hunter in a group, allowing you to maintain considerable AoE offensive capabilities while greatly assisting your team with the DH's innate single-target potential, as well as a party-wide damage buff from Spinning Chakram Icon Spinning Chakram.

The build is greatly adaptable according to the fight you are in, swapping between the multi-target decimation of Multishot  Icon Multishot and the single-target prowess of Rain of Vengeance Icon Rain of Vengeance, while maintaining the Vengeance Icon Vengeance buff for additional attack- and movement speed.

5.

Demon Hunter Rain of Vengeance Challenge Rift Build

You should choose the Demon Hunter Rain of Vengeance Challenge Rift Build when your goal is to progress on the weekly Challenge Rift leaderboard — especially if you aim to do solo progression. The build can also be adapted to group pushes of the Challenge Rift leaderboard, or you can adapt the Group/Dungeon build outlined above with similar success.

Carefully balancing between survivability, single-target competence, and massive AoE damage dealing, this build is meant to support the Demon Hunter in the scaling difficulties of Challenge Rift attempts. It focuses on the dual effectiveness of Crossbow Shot Icon Crossbow Shot and Multishot  Icon Multishot to deal the bulk of AoE damage and Rain of Vengeance Icon Rain of Vengeance to snipe priority targets down, while relying on Daring Swing Icon Daring Swing and Vengeance Icon Vengeance to bolster its speed and evasive effectiveness.

6.

Demon Hunter Knockback Shot Raid Build

You should choose the Crusader Conjuration of Light Raid Build when your goal is to conquer content that pits you against (mostly) singular, hard-hitting, and high-health encounters. Your most common usecase will be the weekly Raid, but the game features other tasks demanding similar endurance out of your build. In summation, the Demon Hunter Knockback Shot Raid build specializes in boss takedowns for content like the Helliquary, Kion's Ordeal, and Path of Blood.

The build shifts its focus away from the usual utility enhancements of farming builds. Instead, it leans into the powerful single-target damage capabilities of Demon Hunters and uses the full-on barrage of Vengeance Icon Vengeance-enhanced Crossbow Shot Icon Crossbow Shot, Multishot  Icon Multishot , Rain of Vengeance Icon Rain of Vengeance, and Untempered Hatred Icon Untempered Hatred-enhanced Knockback Shot Icon Knockback Shot to melt through priority targets.

7.

Demon Hunter Multishot PvP Build

You should choose the Demon Hunter Multishot PvP Build when your goal is to face off against other players in the (several) player-versus-player aspects of Diablo Immortal. The most common cases are the Battlegrounds, available in two-hour windows each day, and the Vault raids, which can pit you against other players on top of (trivial) PvE content. There is also the weekly Shadow War, which pits Dark Clan against Dark Clan in a competition who will get to challenge the current Immortals.

The Demon Huner Multishot build is molded by the needs of ranged combatants during PvP in Diablo Immortal, abusing the strengths of the long-distance barrage that Demon Hunters are capable of, while maintaining safety with the class's crowd control tools. It takes advantage of the combination of screen-wide devastation of Multishot  Icon Multishot and Rain of Vengeance Icon Rain of Vengeance, along with the crowd control capabilities added to those skills with supporting legendary items. There is decent flexibility in the remainder of your rotation.

Conclusion

With the proper build equipped, you will minimize survivability struggles while maximizing your overall damage and movement speed — the tenets of action RPG character building.
