Diablo 4 Open Beta Known Issues: March 24th

Recommended Posts


Blizzard have posted an update with the issues they're working to improve on the Diablo 4 Beta.

Hello everyone -

Diablo IV Open Beta has begun and we want to thank everyone for jumping back into the world of Sanctuary. These beta tests are a crucial part of our development and help us make the game experience better for everyone as we head toward launch in June. Today, we have seen more players than ever log into the game. We are excited to see all the enthusiasm about the game and the two new available classes for testing (Druid & Necromancer) this weekend.

We want to provide an update on some of the major items the team is currently working on after the start of Open Beta earlier this morning.

  • We are looking at an issue where players disconnect from the game and are unable to rejoin after disconnecting. This is tied to a few other items that players are experiencing such as party errors and some network performance issues in-game.
  • There is an issue where Windows 11 users may run into a crash upon alt-tabbing while in Fullscreen. We do have a workaround for that and it is located here on this thread 4.
  • Some users are also experiencing issues with in-game voice dialogue. A workaround for this issue is for users to leave the game and go into their game settings and adjust language settings to English. English is currently the only available language available for voice dialogue in beta. We will have other languages available in the final game.

Beyond this list, the team is working on many other reported items and capturing them so we can address them either during beta or before launch.

As we noted earlier this week, we do expect queue times this weekend while we manage the flow of players in-game as we tackle these issues. We expect queue times to fluctuate depending on the time of day and traffic depending on where you are located. There may be a time where we need to take the servers down to perform maintenance and to push out an update. We will make sure to notify the community beforehand when and if that occurs.

We will continue providing updates either later this evening or tomorrow morning (PDT) once we have additional information.

Thank you again for the enthusiasm and feedback as we help bring Diablo IV to everyone come June.

      He did it again! Wudjio is back on the Diablo 4 Server Slam this weekend, pushing for the ultimate achievement: a solo kill of the World Boss Ashava. He had already done it during the last two beta weekends, but players were level 25 then and had a 300% buff to legendary item drop rates!
      That made this particular achievement especially great, as many players have been complaining about just how much harder the boss now is. This is in part due to the lower level cap, but there were also many tuning changes to the classes affecting their power.
      And if that wasn't enough for you, here's another one, from DeadgeRogue:
      And another, and this one isn't even a Rogue, as Alkaizer took the boss down on his Barbarian. You can check out the clip here.
      While you may not be able to solo the boss yourself, you can definitely find more players to help. You can also check out the boss spawn times here as there’s only around two more days left to get that exclusive mount trophy!
      Wudjio even got a mention by Diablo 4 Community Manager PezRadar!

      If you’re looking to defeat Ashava during the Diablo 4 Server Slam to earn the Beta-exclusive mount trophy, here you will find the exact spawn times for the world boss.
      Where Does Ashava Spawn?
      Ashava spawns in the bottom right corner of the map, as shown in the screenshot below.

      World Boss Ashava Server Slam Spawn Times
      The world boss will spawn 9 times during the Server Slam with each spawn being up for 15 minutes. A Reddit user has created a useful cheat sheet with localized spawn times for your region.

      Many players have been complaining about the nerf to Necromancers since the previous beta phase, with the weakness and very quick deaths of skeleton skills being the primary concern. However, we just heard that skeletons are in the process of getting buffed right now, as Community Manager PezRadar just announced:

      Hi all -
      The team has just deployed a hotfix for the Diablo IV Server Slam that will be addressing some of the feedback we’ve seen regarding Necromancer pets and their survivability. This is a backend change so users will not need to download a new update. The hotfix will take a few hours to deploy to all users.
      Just a reminder, the Server Slam test will be ending at 12:00PM PDT on Sunday. Thanks again to everyone who has logged in over the weekend to help test our servers prior to the launch of Diablo IV.
