General Playstyle[edit | edit source]

As a range damage career, Huntsman should always put Special killing as your first priority. Then depends on your choice of range weapon, focus on Elites or Horde Mobs until you reach a point where you need melee weapon to block or generate Temporary Health. When there is a Boss on the field, focus on it as soon as there are no other threats for you on the map. However, you still need to pay attention and help your team on Specials.
