Rise, Nephalem! On 6 June 2023 (or 2 June for Early Access), Diablo 4 will release on PC and consoles. Some fans of the APRG franchise from Blizzard will surely want to race to the Diablo 4 max level and farm the endgame.
This guide explains what the maximum character level is in Diablo 4, alongside the Paragon Points cap, and where your character will be in terms of level progression once you've completed the non-linear story, so let's get started.
Update on 28 March 2023: We've updated this article with the latest information about the max level and Paragon Point cap in Diablo 4.
The Diablo 4 Open Beta has now ended and we look towards the game's full launch on 6 June 2023, or 2 June for those with Early Access.
Max Level in Diablo 4
Diablo 4's massive campaign will take roughly 35 hours to beat. As fans of the iconic ARPG franchise know, that's only the start of the journey, as the grind to the maximum level in Diablo 4 will continue for quite some time.
It has been confirmed that the max level players can reach on a character in Diablo 4 is 100. This might change with new seasons, but for now, there's no way to get past level 100.
For those who plan on playing in the Open Beta to test out Diablo 4, note that the max level is 25 for the tests, and players are limited to the Fractured Peaks region.
Diablo 4 Paragon Points Cap
Unlike Diablo 3, the Paragon Points you can earn in Diablo 4 are not infinite. Instead, players will unlock the Paragon Board at level 50. Players will earn 1 Paragon Point for every 25% of a level.
As we've already mentioned in the first section of this article, the maximum level is 100 in Diablo 4. To this end, it looks like the Paragon Points cap at launch will be 200 or 201, depending if you get one point once you hit level 50.
What Level When Completing Diablo 4's Campaign?
Once you complete Diablo 4's story, which should take around 35 hours to beat, your character will be roughly level 45. This depends, of course, on how many side activities, such as Strongholds, the player completes and much more. It also depends on the Diablo 4 World Tier difficulty, as World Tier 1 (Adventurer) provides less XP than World Tier 2 (Veteran), and both are available before completing the campaign.
Speaking to GameSpot in an interview, Game Director Joe Shely explained.
We know that it's fun to build your character and discover all these powerful builds. And we also think it's really important to have content to test yourself against. So we've really tried to expand the variety of activities. And as Rod said, the game, when you finish the campaign, you might be level 45 or something. Your character level goes up to a hundred through Paragon points. And you get access to whispers, you get access to Nightmare dungeons, other endgame activities that we're still working on.
We really wanted you to have a wide variety of things to do. And of course, you've got world tiers that are allowing you to step up the keep, make sure that the difficulty of the world stays on pace with the power of your character level. And to unlock those, you actually need to prove to complete a dungeon to access that more difficult content. So it goes back to the idea of making a build, making it powerful, and then testing yourself against some challenge.

So there you have it, an overview of the Paragon Points cap in Diablo 4, the max level characters can reach, and even what level your character should be once you've completed the game's story for the first time. We will endeavor to update this article if any new information comes to light or if anything changes.
