Clockwork Ballet

Welcome to the Erika Wind Stalker Leveling Guide. Erika is a highly mobile Hero who utilizes movement to deal damage through Multistrikes. She excels at using Attack Skills and feels great to play due to the high Movement Speed. She may feel a little inconsistent at times, because you need to move to build Stalker stacks to maximize your damage, then spend them with Multistrike.

The leveling guide is intended to take your character to Level 90.
This is the last level with unlimited free respec points.
Be sure to check the final section of the guide for recommendations on how to transition into the Endgame!

Check out the Complete Story Walkthrough for tips on how to complete the Campaign.

Treasure Troves

Treasure Troves are a way to super-charge your leveling experience. They give vastly more experience than regular zones and yield exclusive Legendary items. You need to complete each of them once for a Talent Point. For an easier leveling experience, you repeat the Treasure Trove until you're 8-10 levels above the zone, then rush through the next few areas. Follow your side quest to find the Treasure Trove locations.

Keep an eye out for the following Legendary items as you clear Treasure Troves.

  • New Ear Hills (L7): Look out for Pentagram Astrolabe, Lonesome and Rock Lizard's Skull.
  • Nectar Valley (L16): Look out for Boor's Iron Crown and Omniscient Prototype.
  • Dawn Avenue (L27): Look out for Omniscient Prototype, Lightning Conductor Armor is a reasonable alternative.
  • Sanctuary of Solitude (L35): Look out for Omniscient Prototype.
  • Silver Sands' End (L44): Look out for Chain of Resistance and Sea Splitter.
  • Hall of Grandiosity (L54): Here you should farm to level 60 to reach your next Hero Trait before completing the campaign.

Leveling Tips and Tricks

  • Your first active skill slot (top left in the Skills menu) is your "Main Skill," this matters because many items and Hero Traits have effects that only apply to the Main Skill.
  • If you're ever in doubt of where to go, click the campaign quest on the left of your screen and a golden path shows you the way.
  • This guide assumes you get most of your levels through Treasure Troves and rush to the objectives in other zones for maximum efficiency.
  • When allocating Pact Points, prioritize Elemental Resistance first, then select Damage nodes until you fill the section. If you have leftover points, put them into Drop nodes as you begin farming the Netherrealm.
  • Complete all 10 Levels of the Hero Forge to unlock all of your Hero Trait abilities and gain 6 additional Talent Points.
  • All support gems become available from the Skill Shop at level 55. At this stage cross reference with the embeds to make sure you're set up for the Netherrealm.
  • In Chapter 3 gear you find comes with varying amounts of Energy, after changing your gear, be sure to go to the Energy Menu under Skills to reassign missing Energy.

Equipment & Stat Priorities

Core Skill

  • Thunder Slash is a Lightning Damage Steep Strike Skill that converts 100% of your skills Physical Damage to Lightning Damage.

Erika Wind Stalker Leveling Talent Tree
Move to slider at the bottom to interact with the Tool

Goddess of Hunting

Begin with 20 points in Goddess of Hunting, this tree has bonuses focused on Lightning Damage, Dexterity, and Attack Speed.


This tree is insane for Erika as it has many bonuses to Multistrike, get 36 points here to unlock Quick Advancement.


Ronin gives you more flexibility with your mana costs along with providing Fervor, a powerful buff to your Critical Strike Rating. Falling Leaves is also a huge damage boost as once you convert to Dexterity stacking, your damage is not reliant on the flat damage inherent to the weapon.

There are tons of different Talent Trees to explore, if you want to learn more about this robust system check out our Talent Tree Guide.

Traits, Relics and Memories

Hero Traits

Hero Traits, Relics & Memories

Level 45: Interest grants additional Movement Speed for every stack of Stalker you have. It also provides increased duration to Cat's Agility.

Level 90: Cat's Vision grants up to +3 maximum stacks of Stalker.

Maximum LifeSteep Strike Chance
Critical Strike Rating+1 Lightning Skill Level
Critical Strike Damage+1 All Skill Levels
Cooldown RecoveryAdditional Damage to Enemies in Proximity

The Netherrealm

Racing through your Netherrealm quests as quickly as possible results in you becoming under leveled for the required zones to progress further, stay within 3 levels of the zones you're completing to avoid a harsh experience penalty. Check out our How to Progress the Netherrealm if you're unsure of anything.

Here's a list of things to do while progressing the early stages of the Netherrealm;

  • Level 60, The Trade House is unlocked. Be sure to read and understand our Trade House for Beginners Guide before making any big purchases.
  • Higher item levels of gear come with higher quantities of Energy. Look to improve your current gear with items that have increased energy so that you can use more Support Skills.
  • Utilize Prototype Crafting and Enchanting to greatly increase the power of gear you come across. It costs very low amounts of Flame Sand to lock 1 good affix in place and reroll up to 4 new modifiers. Legendary Gear with Legendary Aptitude allows you to roll mods and craft on those items well.

Transitioning to Endgame


The "Lightning Damage per x Dexterity" mod is extremely strong addition to this build but it requires a large amount of Dexterity to come online. Attribute scaling grants 0.5% additional damage to Thunder Slash per point so it isn't a wasted stat before reaching this value, so this is the first goal;

  • Search Beacons or the Trade House for items with any of the following modifier on One Handed Swords.
    • Dexterity
    • Critical Strike Damage
    • Gear Critical Strike Rating
    • Lightning Damage added to Gear
    • Increased Physical/Elemental Damage
    • Multistrike Chance
  • Craft the items using prototype crafting until you have the Dexterity stacking mod as well as 2 of the other modifiers listed.
  • Enchant the item with a 5th modifier.

Remaining Gear

Focus on crafting the remainder of your Armor and Jewelry with the following goals in mind;

  • Cap all of your Resistances at the 75% maximum.
  • Reach a high amount of Dexterity.
  • Have a healthy Life total of roughly 3500.
  • Increase your Physical or Lightning damage
  • Increase your Attack Speed
  • For every 10 points of Dexterity, +1% attack and cast speed. (Amulet)
  • While moving, trigger Burst of Anger with a cooldown of 8 seconds (Boots). Replace Burst of Anger with Bull's Rage once you get this modifier.

Legendary Items

Set Items

As you complete the Netherrealm you encounter Chaos Cards that provide a Set Item. These items are very powerful at a base, and provide powerful set bonuses. Be sure to farm the following Voyager's Commemorative Set Items;

  • Voyager's Commemorative Cape
  • Voyager's Commemorative Strap
  • Voyager's Commemorative Goggles
  • Voyager's Commemorative Boots
  • Voyager's Commemorative Cufflinks
  • Voyager's Commemorative Pinky Ring


  • Opening Heart gives easier access to Fervor but causes enemies to deal 30% additional damage.
  • False God's Skin can roll a variety of powerful attribute modifiers, though finding one with dexterity boosting modifier may be difficult.
  • Ralph's Engraving is a cheap method of generating Fervor, this drops from the Watcher in the Glacial Abyss.
