September 1, 2023 - Here is our level up fast guide in Diablo 4.

Learning to level up fast in Diablo 4 will help you accelerate to the endgame. If you want to play multiple classes, it can be quite annoying to complete the campaign on all classes, so levelling up is crucial. Luckily, you do keep some stats between characters so it gets quicker.

Do note that the game world will scale with you, so if you level up too fast and do not have the right gear to take on high-level enemies, you will be in a lot of trouble. We will go over the best strategies to gain experience points so you can make your favorite builds as quickly as possible.

Tips to level up fast in Diablo 4 season 1

There are plenty of ways to farm XP in Diablo 4, and we will go over some of the most time-efficient methods.

Renown rewards

Exploration plays a major role in Diablo 4, and you can get Renown rewards based on your completion for each region. You need to go through dungeons, quests, and other content that each region has to offer to get a huge chunk of bonus XP from the Renown rewards.

Side dungeons

In addition to the Nightmare Dungeons, there are also side dungeons that you can clear if you want to get some bonus rewards. The side dungeons not only give you tons of XP, but you also get Aspects for all your characters.

Side quests

We know side quests can be boring at times, and a lot of players do not want to deviate from the main campaign in Diablo 4. But if you want to level up fast, the side quests are very important if you want to get a lot of bonus XP and other rewards.

Co-op bonuses

If you play with friends, you get a small XP bonus, so you might want to get a full party for a sweet 10% bonus XP. Being near another player can also net you bonus XP, so even if you don't have anyone to party up with, playing alongside random players against world bosses can also give you a solid amount of XP.

World tier bonuses


You can consider playing at a higher World Tier if you want to get more loot and bonus rewards. This is not something we recommend to all players, but if you have a solid understanding of the game mechanics and know how to gear your character, you should have no trouble levelling up fast.

These are all of the ways to level up fast in Diablo 4! In previous betas, players discovered spots where you could XP farm but they are likely to be patched and are unreliable. You can focus on dungeons and side quests for the most amount of XP playing with friends makes things go a lot quicker.
