Diablo 4 Dev Reveals Time Needed to Reach Level Cap

If you hope to max out your Druid, Sorceress, or any other Diablo 4 class after the game's release in June, you're going to have to grind a bit. According to a new tweet from Diablo 4 associate director Joseph Piepiora, it's going to take at least 150 hours for the average player to reach Level 100, the highest benchmark any character on the Action RPG can achieve.

Using some simple calculus, that means it'd take just under a week of playing straight-through with no breaks to max out your character. Since that's impossible, you should bet on it taking quite a while to reach max status.

Earlier this month, Blizzard officials announced another round of beta testing for the game. Starting May 12th, devs are opening the game up for play again, allowing gamers to tweak their classes or start new characters. Those partaking in the beta are also available to get a reward in the Cry of Ashava Mount Trophy.

Those characters that manage to beat the world boss Ashava—and also happen to be Level 20 or higher—will get the trophy as a reward. Unlike the character progressions from the beta, the Cry of Ashava Mount Trophy will carry over into the full game upon its release.
