Demon Hunter GR 20 Starter Build – Hints

  • Hire the Templar Follower: skill Heal, Intimidate, Charge, Guardian
  • Mark for Death and Preparation enable you to spam Chakram a lot
  • I recommend Chakram over Multishot for the GR 20, because it consumes way less resources. Due to it, you will deal more damage with Chakram overall.
  • If you have enough Death Breath’s, you can upgrade rare daggers in Kanai’s Cube for a Fan of Knives dagger, which will make the GR 20 a joke – replace Sentry with Fan of Knives in this case
