Getting started on a new aRPG is always difficult. You have to get acquainted with the workings while battling gruesome monsters. During this learning period, there is a multitude of mistakes players wish they could’ve avoided had they known better. 

As a beginner in Diablo Immortal, you need to pay close attention to the side activities while saving as many late-game resources as possible. Consequently, you will also have to pay a great deal of importance to your class in order to find success. 

Needless to say, the game tends to get progressively lax the more you understand its mechanics and gameplay. Therefore, we recommend investing more in the early game. 

In this article, we will be taking a nosedive into the beginner level of Diablo Immortal in order to list down all the things you should do from early on to find in-game success.

Choose a Class That You Enjoy.

Diablo Immortal: Beginner Tips

It’s easy to pick a class based on how powerful they currently are in the game, but keep in mind that you’ll be playing it for potentially thousands of hours. If you don’t enjoy the gameplay of the class, it just isn’t worth it in the long run.

If you’re on the fence about which class to main, make each one and see how it feels first. We have a Diablo Immortal: Class Guide that shows the pros and cons of each class if that might help as well.

Salvage, Salvage, Salvage.

Diablo Immortal: Beginner Tips

Always salvage your gear at the Blacksmith while in a town.

As you might’ve expected, the number of objects you can keep in your non-immediate and immediate inventories is rather limited. While there is a multitude of solutions to this in the late game, you might have to forsake a lot of good loot just because you don’t have the storage space for it. 

In order to prevent such an incident from occurring, it’s recommended that you keep track of your storage space from the extreme early on in order to have the best whenever needed. 

If you’ve played Diablo 3 before, then you should be familiar with the concept of keeping your storage empty before any and every battle. 

Invest In Your Gear.

Diablo Immortal: Beginner Tips

An extremely common error that a player can make is being a cheapskate on gear upgrades. Surprisingly, saving your upgrading resources for the ideal weapon won’t matter much since the supply and demand of these resources scale accordingly with the level. 

Therefore, it is almost, always a no-brainer when it comes to upgrading your gear. Not only will it aid you in your grind, but will also serve as a valuable investment in almost every portion of Diablo Immortal. 

Make sure to always upgrade:

  • Weapons
  • Normal Gems
  • Legendary Gems

As they can be transferred to new items.

Do Your Dailies.

Daily activities such as Bounties and the Bestiary is a core part of the game. It’s what you’ll be doing every day, regardless of your level.

Bounties: 8 Battle Points (8x Daily)
Bestiary: 40 Battle Points (3x Daily)
Helliquary: 20 Battle Points (Weekly)

It’s not a huge deal if you miss a day, as they can stack up to 3 days, allowing you to do all 3x the amount in a day.

Group Up.

When doing Elder Rifts, Challenge Rifts, Dungeons, Lairs, etc, always try to group up with others. You’ll get extra rewards and it will be faster.

Utilize Auto Loot.

Diablo Immortal: Beginner Tips

The top-down design of the game can take some time to get used to, especially as a beginner. Therefore, certain items and objects can be hard to identify when dropped. Since you will be focusing on combat, the auto pick-up feature can be extremely helpful. 

Auto Loot can be enabled in the game settings.

However, battling a multitude of enemies also means that your inventory might fill up sooner than intended. Therefore, it’s recommended that you manually optimize your inventory whenever there’s an opportunity. 

Save Your Codex Turn-ins.

At certain points in the main diablo Immortal storyline, it will essentially say: “Go do other stuff until you’re level xx”. Yes, this pretty lazy game design. To counter it, always save your Codex turn-ins for this point.

Always Do Hidden Lairs.

If you’re lucky to come across a Hidden Lair, DO IT! They’re rare, so you won’t find them often.

Extract Legendary Essences

If you loot a duplicate legendary, you can extract the essence to store the special effect and use it on a different item later on. This can be beneficial when you loot the same Legendary down the line, but the modifiers on it are terrible.

Farm Monstrous Essence.

Diablo Immortal: Beginner Tips

Monstrous Essence is used for the Bestiary, which is a great early source of both experience and Legendary items. Obtaining it is an important part of your daily routine.

It drops from random monsters, and can easily be acquired while doing your bounties or any zone events.

You can only have 10 Monstrous Essence in your item at any given time, so make sure to turn them in when you reach the cap.

There is a daily to turn in 3x 10 Monstrous Essence, so make sure to always do them as there is no catch-up mechanic for missing out.

If you’re wanting to focus farming on them, these zones are decent:

  • Ashwold Cemetery (Level 8-22)
  • Library of Zoltun Kulle (Level 35-41)
  • Frozen Tundra (Level 51-55)
