Welcome to the Incarnation of the Gods Thea Leveling Guide. Thea creates a Divine Realm with her Trait Skill. Within the Divine Realm Agility Blessings become Tenacity and while outside of it all Tenacity Blessings become Agility. Giving you easy access to high speed or defense with the flexibility to dance between them mid combat. As a result, positioning is key!

The leveling guide is intended to take your character to Level 80.
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!

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.
  • Stay on level with the Zone as much as possible! You receive reduced experience for being too under or over leveled so ensure you kill enough monsters to remain as close to the zone level as possible.
  • When allocating Pact Points, prioritize Resistances 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 4 gear you find comes with varying amounts of Energy, this can make it difficult to determine whether or not an item is an upgrade. In general if you don't get enough Energy to add a Support slot pick upgrades based on their stats. After changing your gear, be sure to go to the Energy Menu under Skills to reassign missing Energy.

Equipment & Stat Priorities

Main stats to be looking for while progressing the campaign

Look for these Offensive stats on weapons:

  • Fire/Lightning/Cold Damage to Spells
  • Cast Speed
  • % Spell/Elemental Damage
  • Spell Critical Strike Chance
  • Critical Damage

Look for these Defensive stats on armor:

  • Max Life
  • Armor Bases
  • Life %
  • Erosion Resistances
  • Elemental Resistances
  • -x% additional physical damage taken

Core Skill

  • Ring of Ice unleashes a Cold AoE Nova around you, freezing and obliterating nearby enemies. Whenever you kill an enemy with this skill, you have a chance to trigger another Ring of Ice, making this a great pack clearing tool!
  • Mana Boil grants a large additional spell damage multiplier whilst draining your current mana. Magical Source completely mitigates the downside and allows you to have 100% uptime on the buff.
  • Blink is the best movement skill option due to having the lowest Cooldown, support it with skills that increase your cooldown recovery speed and grant additional charges of the skill.
  • Compound Source is our main way to quickly regenerate Life and mana whenever needed.
  • Fixate is used to Mark enemies and grants you a large chance to deal double damage.

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 non-legendary gear you come across. It costs very low amounts of Flame Dust and Flame Sand to lock 1 good affix in place and reroll up to 4 new modifiers.

Transitioning to Endgame


Focus on acquiring either 2 Wands or a Staff with the "Additional damage for Skills cast by Spell Burst " mod;

  • Search Beacons or the Trade House for items with any of the following modifiers on a Staff or Wands.
    • Additional Levels to Cold or Spell Skills
    • Additional damage for Skills cast by Spell Burst.
    • Cold Damage
    • Critical Strike Damage
    • Gear Critical Strike Rating
    • Elemental Penetration
    • Cast Speed
  • Craft the items using prototype crafting until you have Spell Burst modifier as well as multiple modifiers listed above.
  • Enchant the item with a 5th modifier.

Energy Shield

Start exchanging your Life gear with Energy Shield gear as you progress further into the Netherrealm and have Flame Fuel available to. Focus on crafting or purchasing your Helmet, Chest and Boots with the following affixes;

  • % Gear Energy Shield
  • + Gear Energy Shield
  • Elemental Resistances
  • Erosion Resistance

Once you reach a total of 2500 Energy Shield you can seal additional Auras with Seal Conversion as you now have a buffer to protect your low life.

Once reaching a large amount of Energy Shield an Sealing portions of your life; Replace your Compound Potion with Forced Start, use the skill as you would a potion, to stay alive.

Legendary Items


  • Elemental Whisper Belt grants a large amount of Flat Damage to your spells.
  • Chain of Resistance grants additional damage against Single Targets and Area of Effect whilst clearing groups of monsters.
  • Grace Boots offer easy access to Movement Speed on builds which stack Focus Blessings.
  • Spring Resurrection is great for damage while giving you much needed recovery. You'll often find these while leveling but if you don't have one by level 60 be sure to pick it up at the Trade House.


  • Sage's Insight is a great item once you start converting your character to Energy Shield.
  • Sky Devourer - Insight Armor increases your Ring of Ice Area of Effect and Damage whilst also proving valuable defensive modifiers.
  • Ralph's Engraving grants a source of Fervor.
