Diablo Immortal: How to Improve Combat Rating

MMORPGs feature a list of stats and parameters players can upgrade by equipping specific gear or upgrades to their characters in-game. Each stat will affect each character differently depending on the character class, and players will try to augment stats that will also build their characters around their play style.

However, one stat in Diablo Immortal is non-negotiable. It is an important stat that affects the overall impact that a character can have in both PvP and PvE – Combat Rating.

This guide will show you how to improve your character’s Combat Rating in Diablo Immortal so you can easily take on more powerful opponents in-game.

What is Combat Rating?

Combat Rating is the combined values of a character’s Offense Rating and Defense Rating. Both determine how much damage the player deals to enemies or how much damage the player takes from enemies.

Combat Rating will always consider two units’ Combat Rating and determine how much damage one unit inflicts versus the other and how much damage one takes. Having a better Combat Rating versus your enemies means you will inflict more damage on them and vice versa.

Primary Attributes in Diablo Immortal will increase a character’s Combat Rating by 1 point for every point of Primary Attribute raised. So, raising your character’s Strength, Intelligence, Fortitude, Vitality, and Willpower will also raise your Combat Rating.

However, it is worth noting that certain classes will gain more bonuses from certain Primary Attributes.

For example, Barbarians, Crusaders, Demon Hunters, and Monks will gain 1 Combat Rating plus an additional 0.33 damage for every point of Strength increase. On the other hand, Wizards and Necromancers will also gain the same bonuses by increasing their Intelligence Primary Attribute.

How to Improve Combat Rating

You can improve your Combat Rating by acquiring more powerful gear and upgrading them through the Blacksmith, slotting Legendary/Normal Gems, and improving your Helliquary Level.

Gear Upgrades

Upgrading your gear in Diablo Immortal will increase the primary stats these gear provide to your character. The increased stats will also increase your character’s Combat Rating.

Acquiring Legendary Gear/Set Gear

Legendary Gear and Set Gear are the highest tiers of items you can obtain and equip your characters in Diablo Immortal.

As the best of the best items in the game, these gear will feature some of the best stat bonuses in-game and will help improve your character’s Combat Rating.

Legendary Gems/Normal Gems

Legendary/Normal Gems likewise add powerful stat bonuses when slotted into any of your character’s gear in Diablo Immortal.

Aside from these gems’ active bonuses, the passive stat bonuses will also significantly increase Combat Rating.

Check out our Legendary Gems and Normal Gems guide to understand where and how to acquire these valuable items in Diablo Immortal.

Upgrade Helliquary Level

The Helliquary allows players to locate powerful enemies in Diablo Immortal, and up to eight players can raid and challenge in-game.

When you are not going on raids with other players of your friends, you might want to start collecting that precious Hellfire Scoria, as upgrading the Helliquary with Hellfire Scoria will also give characters a permanent Combat Rating bonus.

Ready for Combat

Combat Rating is one of the most important stats players need to focus on in Diablo Immortal, as Combat Rating influences how much damage a player inflicts or takes relative to the enemy’s Combat Rating. Ensuring your Combat Rating is above everyone else’s guarantees you will come out on top of any encounter in Diablo Immortal.
