This guide explains the exact Challenge Rift weekly reset times and dates so you can jump in and start strategizing as soon as possible to claim a place on the leaderboard. We also outline the Diablo 3 Challenge Rift rewards and requirements for those who are new to the experience.
Update on 1 June 2023: We've updated this article to reflect the most accurate and latest info on the 'Diablo 3 Challenge Rift Weekly Reset Times and Days'
Diablo 3 Challenge Rift Weekly Reset Times & Days
Challenge Rifts in Diablo 3 can be accessed through the Diablo 3 main menu and can be done either in 4-player, solo, 2-player, or 3-player. Each of these options has its own leaderboard, with Solo being the most competitive. These leaderboards reset on a weekly basis when a new Challenge Rift appears.
The exact Diablo 3 Challenge Rift reset time and day each week are different per region. Check out the details below.
- NA Servers: Challenge Rift resets each Monday at 13:00 PST.
- Europe Servers: Challenge Rift resets each Tuesday at 04:00 CET.
These times do not change, except in the unlikely event that server issues prevent the Challenge Rifts in Diablo 3 from starting at the correct time.
Challenge Rifts in Diablo 3 Requirements
New to Diablo 3's Challenge Rifts? Well, the requirements are quite simple. All you need to do is reach level 70 and complete a Greater Rift on your Battle.net account.
For the uninitiated, Challenge Rifts are based on Greater Rift clears that other players have done. You get the same character, items, and everything else, tasked with clearing the same levels. Remember, the difficulty will therefore vary from week to week and by region.
