What Does Intelligence Do in Diablo Immortal?
Intelligence is an Attribute in Diablo Immortal, and as a primary stat it directly influences other stats, including Damage and Combat Rating. Intelligence directly increases the magical damage dealt by characters, making it useful for the Necromancer and Wizard classes, a boon not shared by the Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter and Monk. For the Necromancer and Wizard, Intelligence will also increase their Combat Rating, potentially increasing your damage output further while also reducing incoming damage should your Combat Rating be sufficiently high and you be fighting against monsters of your own level or lower.
The Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter and Monk will not gain Damage or Combat Rating bonuses from Intelligence, but since gear is instanced in Diablo Immortal, they’re not likely to have Intelligence-boosting gear drop in the first place.
How to Increase Your Intelligence Attribute
Most gear generally gives you flat bonuses to Damage or Life, as well as having a Magic Property and potentially a Legendary Property. In addition, equipment will give you Attribute bonuses, with rarer, higher level equipment granting higher Attribute bonuses. Any piece of gear - provided it’s at least of Rare quality or higher should have bonuses to two different Attributes on it. What two attributes a piece of equipment has on it is random, as is the value of said Attribute bonuses.
In addition to gear, your Resonance score modifies the Base Attribute bonuses your equipped gear grants you, with a higher Resonance score yielding a higher percentage bonus to your Attribute scores. Since many other derived stats like Armor, Armor Penetration, Combat Rating, Damage, Life, Potency and Resistance are directly influenced by your Attributes, your Resonance score is immensely important, and does much to determine your overall effectiveness in combat. Resonance is primarily gained by equipping Legendary Gems, the rare the Legendary Gem and the more it has been upgraded, the higher the Resonance bonus, hence the higher your Attributes will be boosted.
