Potency is the number in the world of Diablo Immortal that determines how long your debuffs will last on your enemies. It works on both mob bosses and other players and can allow you to get that edge in a fight. If you are a player who relies on CC which is what potency is for, this guide is for you. When you attack an enemy with one of your abilities, you are basically comparing your Potency against their resistance.

Having a good potency level doesn’t mean that the effect will always be applied. So it is more worthwhile to aim for It to be higher than the enemy’s resistance. If your Potency is significantly stronger than their resistance, it can allow you to CC them for ages. An extra 50% duration against players and 99% against mobs to be exact. Such a time difference in their attacks could make all the difference you need to win your fight.

As mentioned before, Potency is crucial for CC-dependent players. If you are of them, it can allow you to make sure that the lingering effects of your attacks, such as Chill/Slow e.t.c are prolonged to the point you can deal with your opponent efficiently.

How to Increase Potency in Diablo Immortal

You can increase your Potency by using Willpower, Paragon Abilities, and Items so let’s go through them one by one.

Willpower

One to increase potency is by raising your primary attribute “Willpower”. Combat rating increases by 1% of all classes so if you increase willpower, it will also increase your potency and resistance.

If you are not a CC-dependent player, you are better off investing your points in resistance rather than potency. This will give you a higher chance of winning fights against foes with high potency.

Paragon Abilities

The paragon levels start to rise once a player hits the maximum level cap of 60. After that, when you can exp, your normal level stays at 60 but your paragon level rises. You can use these paragon levels to increase your persistent attributes which will, in turn, raise your potency.

Items

Items in Diablo Immortals provide players with different stats and attributes. These attributes stay with the player as long as they have equipped the item. Likewise, some items increase potency. Equipping those items would boost your potency just the same.

You can even increase your potency by using gems and if you can’t find the right one, make sure to check our best gems guide.
