Free 2 Play and You!
Since launch, and of this writing (8/21/22) I am at Paragon 154 on my Barbarian. I’ve probably done a bit of grinding now and then on certain days when I was trying to reach a goal of something early, but otherwise, I try to stick to just doing all of the daily items each day and stopping there. This will keep the game fun and a healthier play style that won’t take up all of your time.
I am currently running in a Shadow clan, so some of the items in my daily routine will be for Shadow clans only. The Immortal clans also have a set of extra daily activities as well, which I don’t know at this point, but will add in the future if we pick the Immortals at some point for our clan to follow.
I usually log out each play session at Rakkis Plaza Waypoint in Westmarch. This gives me the best starting point before I run off to do my daily quests and activities.
My current daily routine is focused on boosting my stats as much as I can for free, thus I am focusing on certain items and ignoring other items completely.
Better stats = more powerful character = play at higher levels = get better gear/rewards/etc
My Daily Routine
Depending what items are showing in the Codex as 2x Featured events, do those first, then do the others in whatever order you want. Bounties are often at 2x battle points when I log in to play, so I do those as quickly as I can before it changes to something else.
If the event you are doing has a 2x battle point bonus in the Codex, make sure you immediately claim them when you have completed your goal. They rotate periodically, so you don’t want to wait to claim that particular activity as you may lose out on the bonus.
Now that I have things to do, I go forth and doeth them!
Invites for anything
Back In Town…
Once I have finished playing for the day, I spend some time doing maintenance. This includes visiting most of the vendor and checking a few menus for various achievements or other rewards that were granted while playing.
I kind of do most of these in one big loop for efficiency sake.
Fading Embers and Runes
Charms and Skill Stones are basically P2P items in Diablo Immortal. Don’t get caught up in spending resources trying to get these perfect. It’s not going to happen. Grand charms are a waste for F2P players and can only be effectively upgraded by spending money. Instead, focus on creating grand charms, converting them to skill stones, and then selling them for platinum!
This may seem like a lot, but I can complete most of this in about an hour on most days. Extra events and challenges will add time, but the main daily events take about an hour a day.
I hope this helps in figuring out what to do as a free player. I know once I got a routine down, it really helped me focus and get things done quicker. Remember, only play to have fun. It’s not worth the grind if you’re not enjoying it.
I will try to update this article as I find new tips and tricks for us F2P players!
