How To Get To Max Level Fast In Diablo 4 (Best Method)

Are you looking for the best leveling guide for Diablo 4? Look no further. One of the most important aspects of any RPG game is leveling up your character fast; Diablo 4 is no exception. The benefits of leveling up quickly are clear: you can battle tougher monsters like the world boss Ashava, earn more lucrative rewards, and unlock your class's ultimate abilities.

Of course, leveling up quickly in Diablo 4 takes time, but you can do a few things to make the process more efficient. In this guide, we'll be sharing tips, tricks, and strategies on how to reach the max level in Diablo 4 as fast as possible, whether you're a veteran dungeon crawler or a newcomer to the franchise.

Updated on 24 March: This page reflects information that is accurate for the Diablo 4 Open Beta. We will endeavor to update this page ahead of the game's full release. So please consider bookmarking it for future reference.

Best Ways To Reach Level 25 Fast In Diablo 4 Beta

Important: Before we begin, it's worth noting that the max level in the Diablo 4 beta is level 25, and reaching this level will require significant grinding and effort. However, it's important to remember that the full release of the game will have a max level of 100, so this guide will only cover tips and strategies to help you reach level 25 and prepare for the endgame content.

If you want to level up quickly in Diablo 4, you can do a few things to speed up your progress. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

  • Finish the main story: This is the first and most obvious step. You must complete the main story in Diablo 4 before you can level up further. But don't worry. There are plenty of quests and events to keep you busy as you progress through the game.

  • Do side quests and orange circle local events: Speaking of which, while you're working your way through the story, make sure you're doing every side quest, orange circle local event, and zone event you come across. These are worth a lot of experience and can really help you level up quickly. We already have guides on the Raising Spirits and Secret of the Spring side quests in Diablo 4 that you can read.

  • Kill everything you encounter: Ensure you're killing every enemy you walk past. But don't go out of your way to grind; instead, only take it out if an enemy is in your way. For example, killing certain enemy mobs can award you significant XP but might not be worth the effort and time; you might be better off just progressing the main story and focusing on killing those enemies instead.

  • Play multiplayer: You get more experience playing in multiplayer mode, so if you have friends who are also playing, team up with them to level up faster. In fact, you'll receive a 5% bonus XP for playing near other players, even if they're not part of your party. This bonus is doubled if the player is in your party, making it a fast and effective way to level up quickly in Diablo 4.

  • Clear strongholds (super important): Strongholds are areas of the map that enemies take over. Once you clear them, you'll unlock new areas and get a ton of experience. There are three strongholds in the Diablo 4 Beta, and you should do them in the following order: Kor Dragan (level 25+) , Malnok (level 20+), and Nostrava (level 20+). Furthermore. Each stronghold is worth 100 Renown, which is significantly more than other activities.

  • Stack buffs: The Kor Dragan stronghold has a fire you can interact with to get a stacking buff that increases your experience gained from enemies. Get the buff up to 15 stacks and clear the other two strongholds for even more experience.

  • Participate in events: Once you clear the Kor Dragan stronghold, it will turn into an event called "The Gathering Legion" that happens on a timer. This event is a rush of difficult enemies and bosses worth a massive amount of experience, along with gold, skill points, and potion charges. Participate in this event as often as possible to level up quickly.
