Valla Features

Hungering Arrow

Fire an arrow that deals 157 damage to the first target hit, then seeks up to 2 additional enemies dealing 89 damage. Can hit an enemy multiple times.

Mana: 60
Cooldown: 10 seconds


Deal 172 damage to enemies within the target area.

Mana: 75
Cooldown: 12 seconds


Dash to the target area. Valla's next Basic Attack within 2 sec deals 6% increased damage per stack of Hatred.

Mana: 50
Cooldown: 10 seconds


Basic Attacks grant a stack of Hatred, up to 10. Each Hatred stack increases Basic Attack damage by 8% and Movement Speed by 1%. Lasts 6 sec.

Valla witnessed the ferocity of hellspawn firsthand as the demons ravaged her village and left her for dead. Now, with no people to call her own, her only allegiance is to her cause: to rid Sanctuary of the demonic filth corrupting its lands.


Strikes at the enemy from afar and gains Hatred, increasing her attack speed. Can Vault away if enemies get too close.

Role: Ranged Assassin

Difficulty: Easy


valla-the-demon-hunter-store-thumbnailValla debuted in the short story titled "Hatred and Discipline" written by Blizzard Entertainment publishing lead Micky Neilson. Follow the link to read it at the official Diablo III website.

The short story was reprinted within the pages of the eBook titled Diablo III: Heroes Rise, Darkness Falls (available on PC/Mac, Kindle and other Devices).

The latest appearance of Valla the Demon Hunter was in the pages of Diablo III: Storm of Light by Nate Kenyon. This novel is a Reaper of Souls novel tie-in bridging the gap between Diablo III and the expansion. Tyrael has sensed the Black Soulstone is corrupting the High Heavens and changing the Angiris Council. For this matter, Tyrael recruited a team of heroes in Sanctuary to raid the High Heavens in order to steal the Black Soulstone.

The heroes recruited by Tyrael are: Valla the Demon Hunter, Zayl the Necromancer, Gynvir the Barbarian, Shanar the Wizard, Mikulov the Monk and Jacob of Staalbreak. Shortly after the events of this novel, Tyrael and the new Horadrim deposit the Black Soulstone deep within the Bloodmarch in Westmarch (as seen in the Reaper of Souls cinematic).

Sample Description

These are the voice over quotes repeated by Valla the Demon Hunter when the player clicks on her multiple times. Transcript courtesy of Egrem. (Thank you)

"Hatred must be tempered by discipline."

"As long as this world is plagued by demons, my hunt will continue."

"If you hunt demons long enough, the demons hunt you."

"My training never prepared me for all this... poking."

"Are you quite done? You never touch the night elf demon hunters like that."

"Hm, you lack discipline."

"Not enough hatred. Just kidding, I hate you a bunch right now."

"(Tristram musical ringtone) Hello? Who is this? I don't know any "Darkness". Look, I think you've got the wrong demon hunter. Yeah. Yeah, good bye."

"Be vewy vewy quiet. I'm hunting demons. (evilish chuckle)" (Reference: Elmer the Hunter, Bugs Bunny)
