For Nephalem fighting the hordes of the Burning Hells in Sanctuary on their mobile device or PC, Combat Rating (CR) is of the utmost importance. It is the power measurement in Diablo Immortal, but oddly enough, it isn't as straightforward to check.
This guide outlines the steps you need to take to check your character's Combat Rating in Diablo Immortal and details its effects on combat.
Update on 14 March 2023: We've updated this article with the latest Diablo Immortal Combat Rating info.
How To Check Combat Rating (CR) in Diablo Immortal
Despite CR being of the utmost importance in Diablo Immortal, it isn't visible directly from your character screen.
Instead, Diablo Immortal will have to follow the steps below to check their Combat Rating.
- Launch Diablo Immortal on PC or mobile.
- Enter the game with the character you want to check its CR.
- Open your inventory.
- On the bottom-left side is a hero's silhouette, just above the Equipment button. Click or tap on it.
- This will show your attributes, but still no Combat Rating.
- Click or tap on More Attributes.
- Check your Combat Rating right at the top of the stats list.
Now that you know exactly how to check the Combat Rating of your Diablo Immortal characters, let's discuss why it is so important.
Diablo Immortal Combat Rating Effects
Combat Rating (CR) isn't just a measurement of your character's power. It also affects gameplay depending on the difficulty you are in and even affects PvP.
First, check out the Combat Rating requirement to have a level playing field in Diablo Immortal's six difficulty levels below.
- Normal: No CR requirement
- Hell I: Combat Rating 520
- Hell II: Combat Rating 1220
- Hell III: Combat Rating 2120
- Hell IV: Combat Rating 3250
- Hell V: Combat Rating, 5025
You also need to meet specific CR requirements to take on stronger raid bosses, which have strict minimums to face.
Diablo Immortal's CR also affects your performance in combat. First, your character will do more damage and receive less if your CR is higher than an enemy or boss.
The opposite is also true. If an enemy has a higher CR than your character, it will deal more damage to you and take less damage from you.
The CR effects in Diablo Immortal change depending on the gap between your character and the enemy it is facing. The gap in enemy power can become so great that you will not be able to defeat them until you increase your Combat Rating.
There is one exception: Player vs Player (PvP) CR effects are capped at 10%.
How to Increase Combat Rating
You can increase your Combat Rating in Diablo Immortal by continuing to level up and through various aspects.
- Getting better gear.
- Equipping better gems
- Equipping better Legendary gems to increase Resonance.
- Defeat raid bosses and upgrade your Helliquary.
- Upgrade your Legacy of the Horadrim by leveling it up daily.
So there you have it, everything you need to know about Combat Rating (CR) in Diablo Immortal, and how you can check this important measurement of power.
