Leveling Act 1-10

In order to be able to play this Build, you have to choose a Ranger in the Character Creation.

Before you reach the Endgame, players have to finish all 10 Acts of the Campaign. Most of the times, you will not be able to use the same abilities in the early game as you do in the Endgame. Here is an overview how you can progress easily throughout the Campaign. In this List, you will find all Gems to use in the Early Game, and To-Do Lists for all Act 1 – 10.

For even further advice to Leveling, refer to our Leveling Guide here.
