So which is the best class in Dungeon Hunter 4?.
When gaining a level, your character’s stats will increase. You will also receive a skill point that you can use to acquire or upgrade a skill.
Directional Pad. Used to move the character, and to face a direction when performing skills.
Action Button. Used to perform basic attacks, initiate dialogs and interact with objects (changes from weapon to hand when the latter are available)
Skill Button. Used to perform the active skill assigned to each button.
Spirit Spell Button. Used to perform the spirit spell assigned to it.
Potion Button: used to consume a health potion.
Social Button: Opens your Friend List
Mini-Map: Opens the Dungeon Map Menu
Character Button: Opens the Character Menu.
You will find regular chets in levels, some of them are clearly visible and some others are hidden in passages that would not visit when heading directly towards your objective. Bosses also drop elite chests.
A mission is a small quest that is available in some levels. Each of these levels contains a set of 3 missions. In some of them each set has its own Difficulty levels: Normal and Elite You will automatically receive a reward after completing a mission.
Additional quest-givers will appear along your way, these NPCs have a big blue ! mark on top of their heads. These quests are sort of challenge missions that you have to finish right after you accept them.
You have 3 types of Skills. Active Skills, Passive Skills and Spirit Skills. Tap on your character profile and then tap on the Skills tab to access the menu.
Active Skills: Skills that you can perform once they are assigned to one of the three Skill buttons. Each skill costs Energy to use.
Passive Skills: these skills have a persistent effect when assigned to a passive skill slot and don’t cost energy. You can only have four passive skills applied at once. They can be changed at any time in the skill menu.
Spirit Spells: Very powerful skills. Only the skill assigned to the Spirit Spell button can be used. You only have 1 spirit spell can be active at any time and the cool-down after being used is much longer than the one of active skills.
Skill Points: Used to level up unlocked skills and Spirit Spells. You gain 1 Skill Point every time your character levels up.
Adding skill points to skills improves them.
To equip a skill, you have to drag it to a slot on the Mapping Screen.
You can also win Skill Points by playing the Wheel of Fate. [you can get up to 2 free spins at the Wheel of Fate every day by playing cooperative matches]

These attributes are increased when the character levels up and when using elixirs or scrolls

Armor: increases your maximum health. They can have the same amount of charm sockets as weapons and the ratings is the same.
