What Is In The Server Slam Beta For Diablo 4?

  • All five classes–Barbarian, Druid, Necromancer, Rogue, or Sorcerer–will be able to explore Diablo 4’s Prologue and all of Act I. If you played the Early Access and Public Open Betas, all of your progress has been wiped. Server Slam Beta progression will not carry forward to the final game either, except for any rewards earned.
  • You will not be able to level past 20, but can keep playing for loot.
  • Legendary drop rate has been tweaked to more closely align with the final game’s rates.
  • Bug fixes and updates have been patched into this release.
  • All players also have one last opportunity to unlock the original rewards from the previous betas:
    • 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.

If you have earned them already, you will not have to repeat the feat. All beta rewards will transfer over to the final game when it eventually releases. The Ashava World Boss Event returns in Server Slam as well, with a new reward of its own.
