They say the actual gameplay experience in any ARPG, especially Diablo 4, is the end game, so how do you make it through 100 levels efficiently? With a Diablo 4 Season 2 leveling guide, that’s how.
How to Level Fast in Diablo 4 Season 2
In the early days, everyone complained about the leveling in Diablo 4. It was too slow, too unrewarding, and they were right. But in Season 2, developer Blizzard Entertainment seems to have listened to some of our gripes because leveling is much smoother and more engaging. On my first night playing, with only an hour to spare at the end of the day, I went up nearly 20 levels by farming Blood Harvest and completing just two main missions in Season 2.
It’s entirely possible to hit level 100 quickly and efficiently, and this guide will help you do just that!
Tackle Side Quests
In every settlement you stumble upon, as well as while you’re traveling the roads and backwoods, you will come across villagers who require a helping hand. You should tackle these side quests.
Not only do side quests help you earn favor in the seasonal journey, but every quest rewards experience points and items to help you level and upgrade your equipment. Most offer a cache that includes resources for improving weapons and armor, upgrading health potions, and crafting gems.
But it’s the XP you want most, right? Every side quest offers a humble amount, but it all adds up. After all, they aren’t complicated. Most have you visit point A, kill enemy B, and return to the quest giver. A few stand out, like the exorcist in Kyovashad.
Fight World Bosses
Did you know they increased the spawn rate of World Bosses in Diablo 4 Season 2? I didn’t, at least not at first, but it’s true. The World Boss will now spawn every 3.5 hours, and each time you defeat one, you’ll walk away with a considerable amount of XP and items.
But there’s a catch, as always, with World Bosses. You must hit level 35 to participate, and you’ll likely want to group up with others to take down these behemoths. They’re tough; going at it solo is a surefire way to walk away empty-handed.
Unfortunately, they’re more difficult this season. Blizzard increased just about every stat the World Bosses have, including the amount of damage they deal to players, so you’ll want a competent group of high-level players by your side!
Farm the Blood Harvest
I’ll say it right now: Blood Harvest is many times more entertaining and efficient than Helltide. It’s a lot more fun and a lot more frantic, and I found myself leveling like crazy. I’m on my second character this season, and after just a single night of playing, I’m already over level 20.
The Blood Harvest event rotates around the map, covering a new zone every so often. Inside, you’ll discover hordes of vampires and undead, with mini-bosses to tackle. Furthermore, each zone features three Blood Lure Pedestals, requiring up to 50 Blood Lure to activate, which will then spawn tough bosses that drop additional rewards.
When Does Blood Harvest Spawn?
Each time a Blood Harvest ends, another spawns immediately in a different zone. You’ll want to watch your map, as the new zone may be halfway across the world. That is why unlocking your fast travel points everywhere is wise.
Is Blood Harvest Worth Doing?
Absolutely! As I said, I hit level 20 in a single run. It’s an hour-long event that spawns a ton of mobs, mini-bosses, and more formidable boss enemies to tackle. You’ll walk away with a lot of legendary loot, gold, and XP.
But don’t forget to use your Seeker Keys. They unlock Seeker Caches scattered about the event, and these offer better gear than what enemies drop in the overworld.
Increase Your World Tier
When you first start a new character for Season 2, you have a choice. You can begin in World Tier 1 or 2, with the second slightly more complicated but more rewarding overall. You earn additional XP and gold for every monster kill, making it a more efficient farming tier. Overall, World Tier 2 isn’t difficult, even while playing solo, so I highly recommend starting there for a significant early-game boost.
That said, at some point, you’ll hit a plateau. You will want to increase your World Tier at the World Tier Statue in Kyovashad.
If you do start in World Tier 1, switch to World Tier 2 around level 25. Then, once you hit level 48, tackle the World Tier 2 Capstone Dungeon. Once you beat that, switch to World Tier 3 until level 60. Upon hitting 68, tackle the World Tier 3 Capstone Dungeon to increase your game’s difficulty to World Tier 4.
The goal is to constantly challenge yourself while reaping the increased rewards of each tier.
Keep going strong in Season 2 by learning how to complete Prophecy Pluripotent in Diablo 4, and you’ll hit the max level in no time!
