Welcome to the Thea Wisdom of the Gods Leveling Guide Thea channels the power of the 6 gods through her Blessings, so naturally her identity revolves around using Agility Blessing, Focus Blessing, and Tenacity Blessing to charge Divine Punishment for massive damage. Thea is a great choice for both Spell builds, or Attack builds, and her builds unleash massive bursts of damage!

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
  • % Cold/Spell/Elemental Damage
  • Spell Critical Strike Chance
  • Critical Damage

Look for these Defensive stats on armor:

  • Max Life
  • Life %
  • Erosion Resistances
  • Elemental Resistances
  • -x% additional Physical damage taken

Core Skills

  • 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 that downside and allows you to have 100% uptime on the Mana Boil buff.
  • Frigid Transmission is the best movement skill option due to its cooldown being reset when you Freeze enemies. Support it with skills that increase your cooldown recovery speed and grant additional charges of the skill.
  • Compound Potion is your main way to quickly Restore Life and Mana whenever needed.
    • You can use Compound Source for more immediate access to recovery, however Source skills have limited uses on boss encounters.
  • Fixate is used to Mark enemies and grants you a large chance to deal Double Damage.

Thea Wisdom of the Gods Leveling Talent Tree
Move to slider at the bottom to interact with the Tool

Goddess of Knowledge

Reaching level 10 grants Beacon which allows you to generate Spell Burst. This is the core of your build as it causes your Ring of Ice to cast multiple times. Swap Insight for Burning Touch if you're encountering any mana issues.


This tree grants an additional Spell Burst as well as strong Focus Blessing synergies.


Is the best tree for quality of life, granting huge amounts of cooldown, Empower skill effect and an additional charge of cooldown Skills.

As you progress the build further, Off The Beaten Track combined with Precise: Seal Conversion allows you to run a lot more Auras. This should only be done late into the endgame once you have a good amount of Energy Shield so you can Seal more of your Life.

The Cast and Attack Speed penalty from Indifference slows your Spell Burst in exchange for significantly higher uptime on buffs from your Divine Punishment.

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.

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


One of the following mods are mandatory to transition off of Spring Resurrection. Ideally you should have both on your weapon.

  • +1-2 to level of Cold or Spell Skills
  • Additional Damage for Skills Cast by Spell Burst
  • After that look for the following:
    • Cold Damage, Elemental Damage or Spell Damage
    • Spell Critical Strike Rating
    • Spell Critical Strike Damage
    • Cold Damage added to Spells
    • Elemental Penetration
    • Cast Speed
    • Cooldown Recovery Speed
  • Craft your weapon using prototype crafting until you hit several useful modifiers.
  • Use Targeted Processing to add more modifiers from the above list until the item has 5 modifiers.
  • Enchant your item with a 6th 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.
  • Have a healthy Life pool.
    • Begin scaling Energy Shield for when you go Low Life.
  • Spell Burst Modifiers
  • Increase your Cold or Spell damage.
  • Increase your Cast Speed.
  • Spell Critical Strike Rating, or Damage.

Legendary Items


Keep an eye out for the following common items during your leveling journey:

  • 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.
  • Elemental Whisper Belt is another common Legendary, and a good way to get damage early on.
  • Grace Boots offer easy access to Movement Speed on builds which stack Focus Blessings.
  • Chain of Resistance a great early game item offering much needed single target damage early on.


The following items may be expensive but offer powerful effects;

  • Sky Devourer - Insight Armor is a good entry level endgame item offering defenses, area, and damage.
  • Surging Inspiration provides a massive bonus to your Spell Burst in exchange for you losing Mana when you Spell Burst.
    • Only use this when you have enough Mana recovery.
  • Hunting the Eye of the Kraken adds an explosion effect to your build allowing you to clear more quickly.
    • If you want to fight Bosses, instead consider Hekate's Vision or a Crafted item.
