Fresh 70 Demon Hunter? It’s time to get your FREE SET from completing the seasonal journey! In our Fresh Level 70 Demon Hunter guide, get Haedrig’s Gift and progress in the most efficient way possible, with builds and protips for every step of the way! Lezgo!

Natalya’s Vengeance is season 20’s free set.

You can freely cube any three items (IE:3 weapons, 2 armors and a ring).
Instead of being forced to use one weapon, armor, and jewelry.

How does Season of the Forbidden Archives affect me? 

In General...

In your journey to powering up, it mildly helps you since you can cube your “three best things” to help you fill out your build. This is quite a potent effect to help your growth snowball out of control. It is heavily affected by your luck, though.

As for the endgame? This is not the scope of this guide but I may put some notes on unusual cube combinations for each seasonal free set.

Fresh 70 Demon Hunter: Getting the Free Set!

You can CRAFT AND USE REAPER’S WRAPS for a huge boost!

Other craftable non RNG goodies?


Reaper’s Wraps are amazing on any set that needs constant resources. Natalya is one of ’em. Get this ASAP.

The Captain Crimson’s set is godlike on Natalya and you want to get this ASAP as well. Nats is a 7 piece set with weird pieces so you can use the Belt+Legs without a RoRG.

You can also consider Aughild’s for the extra anti elite damage. It’s pretty good for us since Natalya’s struggles with elites.

Funnily enough, with Ring of Royal Grandeur, Natalya can have:
6pc Natalya Set bonus, 3pc Captain Crimson, and 3pc Aughild’s.
This is due to the weird configuration of the base Natalya “7” piece.

IMPORTANT: Setting up!

I had a long note here back in the day about the nuance of playing Natalya’s “properly”. This is ultimately unneeded as I will be steering you towards a “easier to pull off speedfarmy” version of Nat’s which SHOULD be your focus this early on. No use tryharding with incomplete builds.


Fresh 70 Demon Hunter Items needed: You’ll be surprised how effective finding/crafting and rerolling yellow items are. These guys work hard until you get a full legendary build – so you might as well be carrying decent ones.

Demon Hunters NEED ALL RES and NOT ARMOR.

Dexterity is the main stat for DH, together with Vit. These are the basic stats you’re after. DH’s are a DEX char, you gain DAMAGE+ARMOR from DEX. Since you get a ton of DEX and Armor for free, the defensive value of armor gets “flooded” fast. Meaning any unnecessary armor values from gear are almost worthless.

What you don’t get for free is RESISTS that’s why ALL RESISTS will be your BEST DEFENSIVE STAT. Roll off ANY armor rolls on your gear in favor for ALLRES. Diamonds in sockets do wonders for this, too.

Weapon: Get a good 2H Crossbow! Dex + Vit are must have stats! Life per Hit will greatly help you as you progress! Having socket on it is very flexible, too; Allowing you to socket Amethyst for Life per Hit or Red/Green for damage.

Quiver: DEX VIT are a must. There are a lot of great stats possible on quiver but above all else, this early on, +HATRED REGEN is king.

Shoulder: THIS ONE’s IMPORTANT! It’s gonna be a while until you get a shoulder because NATALYA’S HAS NO SHOULDER PIECE. So tryhard and get a DEX >VIT >ALLRES >Life >CDR/RCR or something. Gotta stack those defensives!

Belt: With DEX VIT RES Life% – you need all the defense you can get. Besides, you’ll be using this alllll the way until you get Crashing Rain, so trying hard on a yellow is ok. Belts are a titanic source of defense.

Jewelry with socket: Rings and amulets with a socket in preparation for legendary gems! Don’t feel bad to roll defensive stats on temporary rings.

Bracer and Amulet: Lightning% is a must on these. Elemental damage percent are the two rerolls in the game with the highest damage output given. Little effort for large return.

Body and Leg: DEX VIT RES and sockets.

Gems: Diamonds! This early on you’re gonna need diamonds on your body and leg sockets. Diamonds give +ALLRES which gives a ton of survivability early on. You can use AmethystsDiamonds, or Topaz on helm for Life%, CDR, and RCR respectively.

Hire Templar! Get all the skills on the left side for that “free” Hatred and heals. Also, summon your pet for a helpful “gold collector”.

Fixing your gear and getting those stats mentioned above will “Vault” you farther
and faster than just blindly waiting for legendary upgrades!

Customize Skill Bindings

If you’re not allowed to put two skills on your bar because they’re from the same category – FEAR NOT! This isn’t a bug or a permanent in-game restriction. You simply have to CHECK ON ELECTIVE MODE, via Esc > Options > Gameplay > Elective Mode!

Binding Force Move to Mouse wheel up & down is a value change that every player should make IMO. It prevents misclicks and skill misfires, and forces you to move to where otherwise an enemy might be.

Hard Difficultyyou can easily finish Chapters 1, 2, and maybe even 3, if you stick to this difficulty. Only increase if needed (complete a neph on Expert).

Are you “lazy” like me?! Certain entries in the season journey can be completed in one pass. Just do one complete round of bounties (for Chapter 1) and the Acts 1-5 bounty cache entries (Chapter 3) will also be ticked off. If you’re lucky enough, you can also tag the bosses needed. Better do this when you’re level 60+. Got a bounty in Ruins of Sescheron? Why not visit the 2nd floor (Elder Sanctum) and look for the Kanai’s Cube. You should be getting your first set of Haedrig’s gift in no time!

The first 2 Chapters of the Season Journey is so easy to complete. I don’t think you will experience any problems here…

Keep the setting up tab in mind – you might just scrap what, otherwise, might be the yellow that pushes you to new heights of power!

Seasonal Journey Chapter 3: Getting the 4 piece

 This tab: If you’ve gotten 2 pieces of the free set, going for 4.

Leech Ambush

Why use the Shade rune? Man… I experimented with non-Shade runes thinking Shade is only good for high-end GR. Sadly, I discovered Shade is just damn good anywhere. The AoE is MASSIVE and it simply deals damage “faster” than the physical. Stick with it.

From now on, change your mindset: Trigger as many Rain of Vengeance‘s as you can!
Everything else in your kit is to facilitate this RoV spamming playstyle!

There are only two “meaningful” entries here. Completing all bounties and one Neph on Master. If you haven’t done both… Get the bounties done first.

Difficulty: Although there are entries that need to be completed on Master, the rest of the entries can still be done on Hard. No point in making it difficult for us to progress to the next chapter – so always use the minimum difficulty asked.

Beat the following on Master difficulty

  • Nephalem Rift
  • Kill Adria – Act V, Ruins of Corvus
  • Kill Butcher – Act I, Halls of Agony Level 3

Get this chapter done so we can finally complete Natalya’s Vengeance free set.

Seasonal Journey Chapter 4: Getting the 6 piece

 This tab: If you’ve gotten 4 pieces of the free set, going for 6.

No changes to the build. Keep triggering Rain of Vengeance! Switch BV for Perfectionist passive if overloading on resources.

Before we attempt our luck with GR20, let us finish off this chapter’s other entries and maybe fix up our gear a bit before we go in there solo.

Chapter 4 Entries:

Jewelcrafting Recipes: most of these drops from bounty cache but if you find yourself lacking a couple of recipes, you can go buy some from Squirt the Peddler in Act II, Hidden Camp.

Upgrade a Rare to Legendary w/ Kanai’s Cube: Try upgrading a 1H Crossbow, and hope for Dawn to materialize. Fortress Ballista or Calamity wouldn’t be so bad, either.

Complete a Torment I Rift: This season journey entry should be easy enough especially if you follow the build and stat recommendations above.

Set Difficulty to Torment II: Defeat Boss ? in Act

Set Difficulty to Torment IV: we have a bunch of things to do here…

You will notice a huge spike in enemy power at Torment IV! Adjust accordingly!

  • Kill Boss ? – Act
  • Kill Odeg the Keywarden – Act I, Fields of Misery
  • Kill Sokahr the Keywarden – Act II, Dahlgur Oasis
  • Kill Xah’Rith the Keywarden – Act III, Stonefort
  • Kill Nekarat the Keywarden – Act IV, Garden of Hope 2nd Tier
  • Keywardens maps have a key icon next to the waypoint. Purple arrows point you to their location after a short while once you’re in their respective map.

Once you’re done with all these entries, you can now focus on beating GR20 Solo. Check the next clicky for the recommended build. But before anything else, make sure that GR20 is already unlocked for you. If not, just do the highest GRs you can to unlock.

Demon Hunter GR 20: Natalya's Vengeance 4 piece

Nats CAN be tough if you do it raw. If you had no luck with legendaries and can’t be assed to play it “old-school optimal”, then simply do 3 greater rifts and equip 3 legendary gems – it should be much easier then. Video below on how to do it “raw”, which is uhhh… painful on the hands.

>>> NATS 4 GR20 VIDEO HERE <<<

This video was made in “The olden days”, but its a good example on how to “weave” Evasive Fires into Strafe. This play pattern is pretty unnecessary these days… but it might be useful to you when fighting rift guardians. NO CRAFTED LEGENDARIES (or any Legendaries) WERE USED. Only yellows.

Remember the setup tab above? Those “good yellows” will go a long way here. Seriously. For a “reference”, here were my stats and what I tested with:

  • Offense (sheet): 275K
  • Toughness (sheet): 7.9M
  • Recovery (sheet): 600K
  • Dex: 7000
  • NO ‘special’ legendaries aside from the Natalya’s 4-piece set.
  • NO Pylons taken.
  • NO Legendary Gems.
  • NO Cubes powers used.
  • Remaining Time: 4~ MINUTES!

Sadly, we have to drop Companion-Bat from the build – unless you’re confident you can dish out the DPS – then put it back in.

Surviving is a real pain so please play carefully – multiple deaths are your only risk here since you have more than enough damage to squeeze out a comfy timer. If you’re greedy and die 20 times? Nothing’s gonna save you from that. TRY TO DRAG ELITES TO CLUMPS: While it’s not so noticeable now, Natalya’s weakness is its pathetic single target damage. So try to drag elites along and keep moving!!!

The key to any GR20 run is SELF-HEALING. Leech does it wonderfully but don’t be shy to stack more! Amethyst on weapon is a good fallback.

RESULTS MAY VARY on how well you play the build! Not even kidding, the difference is huge. I sincerely hope for the best and there’s no shame in running a few practice nephs!

Offense numbers DO NOT take into consideration most Legendary Powers and Gems. But since I did it RAW – these will serve as a great estimation. It felt like I couldn’t lose, but I felt extremely squishy – this clear is ALL ABOUT DEFENSE AND SAFETY.

Watch the video to see how it works!

There is a high likelihood you won’t stick with Nat’s for much longer and opt for UE6 speedfarming which is absolutely CORRECT. So to help your transition into “anything”, I will design an “easy to use, fast Nats build”.

While there is a high-tier Nats build (you should at least be aware of), your immediate goals should be speed farming. Here’s the rundown of items needed for it so you can keep ’em

high end Nats build

Uses Rapid Fire + Grenades. You’re gonna want to hold on to:

Speaking of pain reduction, I hate to mention it again, BEAT MALTHAEL AND CRAFT REAPER’S WRAPS. It’s going to make your life much much easier. I will also remind you of the other crafted goodies Captain Crimson’s set (belt, legs, boots make ’em all), and a distant third Aughild’s Set.

So, what now?

Torment VIthe minimum torment to farm. You can, of course, go higher. The only thing that would hinder you is how well you handle the build. Natalya’s has too many variables for me to tell you where exactly you should be farming. Just remember not to take more than 10 minutes in a Neph.

A quick review before proceeding…

Keep these important things in mind as you progress!

Non-set pieces: Review

RINGS AND AMULET WITH SOCKET: Legendary gems are coming up!

Shoulders and Chest with RoV%. Natalya’s set doesn’t come with shoulders, you should then be on the lookout for a good shoulder piece. Craft and/or reroll if you have to. Aughild’s set comes with shoulders!

Bracers and amulet with Lightning%. You will see your damage exponentially go up!

Belt: stack it up with defense with these stats: DEX VIT RES LIFE%

Sockets: get these on both jewelries and body armor! Sockets in amulet and rings is in preparation for socketing legendary gems. Diamonds on body slots.

Templar. Make sure he’s following you! The resource regen he gives you is most welcomed.

Fixing your gear will vastly improve your game. Re-roll those stats that won’t help you in any way. Don’t let sucky gear stats hold you back from progressing.

Gaining Power!

Now we have to gain as much power, as quickly as possible. The first place to look is Legendary Gems, as well as keeping an eye out for critical items.

Legendary Gems

This is the easiest way to gain power simply because acquiring them has little to no RNG. Getting 3 of your best gems will increase your power dramatically in a short time span.

Click on the tabs to see Natalya’s Vengeance “Big 3” gems, and “others”.

Fresh 70 DH Natalya's Big 3 GemsOther gems?

Get these two to L25 ASAPTaegukPowerful

Bane of the Powerful: Is always amazing early on due to how cheap it is to upgrade. With only 25 levels it “maxes out”. It greatly helps your anti-elite woes.

Taeguk: Any build that channels will want Taeguk. It scales extremely well for each point invested and even gives Armor – pure value. Invest as many points as you want! Easily your most important gem in the build.

Don’t go for a third damage gem yet.

Esoteric Alteration: Since you use Leech and self-heal a lot, the only problem is BURST DAMAGE. Getting bursted down while you have a leveled Esoteric is very unlikely.

Want more defenses? Go double defensive gems.

The perfect pair for Esoteric if you’re getting dumpstered is Moratorium. Your self healing from Leech will erase any downside this gem has.

Need more damage / utility?

Gogok of Swiftness is great in many forms of this build. It gives considerable Dodge, ASPD, and CDR. Wew. This combos extremely well with Captain Crimson’s set.

I dislike Zei’s for Nats, I’d much rather have Trapped.

Best offensive Gems:
Taeguk (#1!) > Powerful (Speed only) > Gogok (All around) > Trapped (“I need DPS”)
Stricken is strictly for absurdly tough Rift Guardians.

Best defensive Gems:
Taeguk / Gogok (DPS & defense) > Esoteric (Mega toughness) > Moratorium (Early game)
Other gems such as Gizzard, Mutilation, etc are junk for you.

Any other gems worth it?

Bane of the Stricken: Will be used in LATE GAME GR’ing. There is never a downside owning a high level Stricken . Sadly, it’s quite worthless for any serious speed farming build which is what you should be going for.

Bane of the Trapped: Basic DPS increase.

Esoteric Alteration: is the lategame defensive gem of choice.

Boon of the Hoarder: You might need this for speedfarming.
(See: Speedfarming General, Demon Hunter Speedfarming Primer, Best DH Speedfarming)

Aside from these gems, the other’s aren’t really worth it for Nats.

Aside from these 5 gems listed in these tabs, any other gem is considerably worse.

Just get them asap while slowly climbing the GR’s you’re allowed to do. Do neph/GR/neph/GR etc until you get the big 3. Don’t overdo the level, just go for efficient farming and cheap empowering. GR 34 is enough to 25 a gem.

With 3 of your best gems at L25 – try much higher Torment levels (VIII at least). So now the real farming begins! From here on, obliterating elites is still the game plan. You’ll still face problems with mobs and you might need to put a little mind on defense, too.

Playing the Build & Adjustments

Here’s some really basic tips for playing Natalya’s to help you as you progress into higher difficulties. It’s by no means comprehensive, but still helpful.

Playing Natalya's 6 - BasicsOffense & ResourceDefense & HealingSpeed & Mobility

“Oh boy”

Natalya’s Vengeance is one of the most mechanically complex builds out there. Again, the idea is to weave your Evasive Fires while Strafing… there’s a very rhythmic timing to it! This causes the “Reduce cooldown” to happen a little more often AND allows you to “infinitely Strafe” – sounds easy, right? NO.

“Everyone has their own way”

Honestly, you can watch the GR20 video I have above to check it out, but I  personally don’t think it’s worth the pain (physical and otherwise) to learn it thoroughly. Just do it “good enough”.

Now for in-game non-mechanical strategy! ELITES ARE A PAIN IN THE ASS and you should drag them over to clumps, as I’ve mentioned earlier. From a strategic perspective, Nat’s is quite simple… AOE AS MANY GUYS AS YOU CAN – Nat’s has a very satisfying “meat grinder-esque” gameplay if done right. Keep ’em comin’!

Lord Greenstone’s Fan is an excellent anti-elite tool if you so happen to chance upon it.

More offense or Hatred /Discipline needed?

Offense is usually categorized in Damage or, indirectly, Resource Gain.

Any Resource Gain skill or passive that isn’t Vengeance-Seethe or Night Stalker should be seen as TEMPORARY! You can also change your build to allow infinite Strafe while SPEED FARMING, but strictly speaking, the build doesn’t need any of it.

Vengeance-Seethe isn’t included in the base build above since it’s not very consistent without Dawn. Just putting it here to remind you what you’re shooting for.

If I’m noooooooooot mistaken even Seethe was a filler for Dark Heart. If I remember correctly, you can keep the Aquila buff up even without Seethe!

Marked for Death is your best bet for a damage boost to replace one of your skills.

Passives are slim. Nat’s makes use of many Passives and DH isn’t known for great DPS passives. Ambush is the best one, the others are too unreliable.

More defense needed?

Defense is usually categorized in either Toughness or Self-healing capability.

Leech is listed in the main build since it’s a GODLIKE PASSIVE. I’m not kidding man! A lot of people overlooked Leech for a long time, but this is the real deal.

Passives? Numbing Traps and, eventually, Awareness would be my next bet. Both are great defensives, if you can fit them. Perfectionist is a distant third if you’re desperate.

There are other “weird” choices you can add if you’re desperate:

Aside from this, there is probably ZERO practical toughness increases. Seriously, I’m really not kidding with Leech – it’s GODLY.

More mobility needed?

Smokescreen-Displacement is recommended in the base build for its speedfarmy capabilities. Sadly, Discipline is really hard to come by…

Tactical Advantage is your one stop shop for increased clear times. It stacks with Displacement, but I like to think of this as “giving Displacement rune to Special Recipe”.

Any other changes for speed at this point is too greedy and I can’t recommend it.(See: Speedfarming GeneralDemon Hunter SpeedfarmingDH Fastest Speedfarming)

Items to look for

Okay, now that the easy part of powering up is done, it’s time for the farmy bit. Here, I will be listing all the high-impact items you can pick up and how to get them (aside from drops).

Remember our two previous reminders here (Crafted and High-end):

Non RNG crafted gear

Crafting a Reaper’s Wraps (drops from any Torment Malthael) is a great early boost, especially for an early game Nat’s Build which heavily relies on holding down a channeled skill. You can free up “some” (or one) resource related skill or passive with this!

Captain Crimson’s set and Aughild’s set are also great, without the need for RoRG even!

high end Nats build

Uses Rapid Fire + Grenades. You’re gonna want to hold on to:

Blood ShardsDeaths BreathThe Classics

Using Blood Shards:

Belt seems to be the best bang for buck here. The real prize is Crashing Rain. While I not only love the name of the item, its effects are downright obscene! 4000% bonus damage! There’s also a ton of good defensive fillers a la Goldwrap or String of Ears.

Shoulders would be next since there’s no Nat’s shoulder. Mantle of Channeling is a shoo-in and gives you damage and defense. Sadly, there’s no other random filler in this slot. You might want to use Aughild’s crafted set (with shoulder), too.

Bracers are good. Wraps of Clarity or Nemesis are the goodies in this pile.

Legs has a decent filler in Hexing Pants – a super good cube option for speedier builds.

Body comes last – and hopefully you’re a pro at this point… Because it’s Aquila Cuirass we’re lookin’ for! You know you’ve made it with Strafe Nat’s if the buff never drops! But this isn’t really crucial in the build.

I might as well remind you here to do bounties for:
Ring of Royal Grandeur: Act I bounties, to fit all our greed.
Avarice: Act III bounties, for speedfarming.

Using Death’s Breath – Rare to legendary:

Upgrading 1H Crossbows for Dawn is the ULTRA find. Dawn allows us to use Vengeance-Seethe in one of our open skill slots. It’s a massive jump in power. Thankfully, there are other fillers you can find here like Fortress BallistaCalamity.

Dawn is the only NECESSARY weapon for us.

Past this, you “CAN” upgrade Daggers for Lord Greenstone’s Fan. This was an old-school method to beat elites, but honestly probably isn’t needed. It’s usefulness could be here or there for you. Try it out?

Feel free to build towards UE Multishot speedfarm at this point.

The Classics: Good for any type of newer character, and even the most battle-hardened of builds.

Ring of Royal Grandeur: “Break” your 6-piece to make space for a good filler item!

Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac: Infinite Resource with Preparation-PunishmentVengeance… a great “filler” ring that can allow you to “cheat” past proper gear rolls on CDR.

Reaper’s Wraps: Not so relevant on DH but can free up a passive slot (Blood Vengeance). Kill Malthael for the plans – and craft it! A legit early boost with no RNG reliance.

Accessory SetsFocusRestraint or Traveler’s Pledge. Completing any of these 2-sets is a vast power jump. +100%++ is substantial for only 2 slots.

Convention of Elements: Good ‘ol CoE. Wear it, Kanai it, as a filler or till the end of time. Learning to maximize CoE in any build you choose is a turning point for higher GR’s.

Unity: Straight 50% damage reduction in the cube. Too bad you need two of ’em.

Goldwrap + Avarice + Boon of The Hoarder: I don’t care how many times I have to remind you about this combo. Be on the lookout. Avarice drops from ACT III bounties.

Bridging to the End-game

So you skipped a whole chunk of the powering up phase with the free set. Now what? Like I always say, “Speedfarming first before pushing GR’s”. So, convert what you have NOW to be as speedfarmy as possible, first.

  1. So i have killed the Keywarden over and over and have killed Urzael over and over im not getting any credit in the season jerny at all im on the right difficulty and everything. wtf?!

  2. Is there something missing(/wrong) in “Items to look for” (” [/su_tabs] “)? Usually there’s Blood Shards, Death’s Breath and classic section. Cheers for the guides anyway!

  3. I was lucky to find “Thunderfury…” leg sword early in season, so when I extracted its Kanai power, it became a nice step to making Impale more anti-group oriented than before 🙂 that lightning damage

  4. Holy wow. I stalled at Expert level because I didn’t understand the 2 set bonus. I went from weakling to god in a few steps by reading this. I owe you one.

  5. Hi, I’m getting piece 3 and 4 from “The Shadow Mantle” set. I’m using 1H sword in weapon slot 1 and slot 2 (off-hand), I can’t use anything (because all 1H). Since we need Karlei’s Point and Dawn later on. We should able to use dagger or sword/crossbow (both 1H) together. Why I can’t do it now. Did I overlook something ?

  6. Meticulous Bolts is no longer in game, it has been replaced by Augustine’s Panacea. Other than that great site and great guides, I am feeling a sudden urge to remake sevral of my toons when ever I see the guides here.
