Jump to: navigation, search

Marked for Death is a Hunting Demon Hunter skill unlocked at Level 21. This skill places a curse on a selected enemy, causing them to take additional damage for the duration of the effect.

It is best used in conjunction with a full Hatred bulb and a readiness to inflict massive damage. It's a useful ability in multiplayer games as well, when everyone teams up to take out a powerful Elite monster.

Marked for Death was first seen at the July 2011 Press Event, where it was a level 8 skill. Unfortunately, no information about the skill's function was available.


When the beta started in September 2011, Marked for Death became a level 23 skill. The skill system was once again overhauled for the Beta Patch 13, and Marked for Death was classified as an Archery skill and moved to level 15. For Beta Patch 14, it was re-classified as a Hunting skill and moved to level 21. The "Hunting" category replaced "Shadow".
