Open Beta Focus


During both the Open Beta and Early Access weekends, players will be able to intimately explore the early game of Diablo IV. This includes a first taste of the campaign via the Prologue and the entirety of Act 1. The first zone, Fractured Peaks, is yours to navigate as you please—stampede through the rugged landscape and cut down demons.

For the Open Beta and Early Access weekends, your character can only level up to Level 25, but you’re welcome to continue ripping through demons until the Open Beta ends. Make your mark on Sanctuary by clearing hellish hordes from dungeons, completing intriguing quests provided by the locals, and amassing powerful loot from fallen foes.

Simply put, this is your opportunity to combat the might of the Burning Hells prior to our June 6 release. With that said, the experience is not finalized and you may encounter performance issues, outages, and come across things that simply don’t work. After the Open Beta concludes, we’ll evaluate all feedback we’ve received and will make changes as needed. We look forward to you experiencing this small taste of what Diablo IV has to offer.

If you have not already pre-purchased a copy of Diablo IV for your platform of choice and want to get Early Access to the Open Beta, visit here.*

      The Diablo 4 Beta gave us a lot more than just Act 1 and a look at all the classes at level 25, as we now have quite a few Uniques to take a look at as well! Despite the fact that there was only 1 Unique item dropping in the Beta itself, the Butcher's Cleaver, there were plenty more in the files and diablo4.cc datamined over 50 of them (as spotted by chuanhsing)!
      However, BEWARE OF MAJOR STORY SPOILERS, as some of the item descriptions (and perhaps even names) very much spoil the game's story, zones and some other major events. Definitely do not go to the page if you don't want to know key details of what happens in the game, but at least the below image is spoiler free. But if you're ok with spoilers, head on over to diablo4.cc for the full list with over 50 items.

      There's a lot to see there, as Uniques all have major build-changing abilities and are more powerful than legendaries, so it definitely fun to look through them and imagine a future build now that we know how the classes work, but again, it may not be worth it due to some of the spoilers in there.

      You only have a few hours left to unlock the Diablo 4 Open Beta rewards before servers go offline.
      Diablo 4 Open Beta ends soon and when the servers are taken down, you will no longer be able to claim Open Beta rewards, which include:
      Initial Casualty Title: earned by reaching Kyovashad with one character. Early Voyager Title: earned by reaching Level 20 on one character. Beta Wolf Pack Cosmetic Item: earned by reaching Level 20 on one character.
      All you must do is reach Level 20 with one character. The rewards will be granted when the game releases on June 6.

      It seems the World Boss has a new nemesis after the daylight savings time one was defeated, as wudjio has managed to solo the boss and even did it on Hardcore mode! And that's not all, as he then went on to repeat the kill once more!
      It seems the gear from that one level 35 elite and all the legendaries that are dropping all added up quite nicely in this ranged Rogue build. Now, technically neither of the kills was a 100% clean solo, as there were was one Necromancer that came in in each pull - with 2% on the boss left in the first kill, and literally shot 1-2 abilities then ran in the second. But it's very clear both were indeed entirely soloed as there was plenty of time left, especially since it usually takes all 12 players at max level to take the boss down. Let's take a look!
      But that's nothing compared to the other kill, which took less than 3 minutes, courtesy of Vidjereii!
