The Season Journey is the main hub for progress and challenges in Diablo 4, and though many of the challenges are simple, they are tied to your progress in the Season of Blood story. With Season 2 starting out with some issues, your progress may be halted as the game gets sorted out, and I’ll update you on whether you should hold off on those challenges.
Is Season Journey Progress Tracking in Diablo 4 Season 2?
Note: The Season Journey tracking has been fixed for Season 2.
At the time of this writing, the Season Journey is not tracking any challenge progress for Chapter 1. If you have already started the Season of Blood story and made your way to the “Summons of the Deathless” quest, then you may have to wait. To get beyond this quest, you need to “Complete Chapter 1 of the Season Journey.”
I already tested a few of the challenges myself, and they don’t track. I tried to complete Cellars, collect Reddamine in the Dry Steppes, and complete a World Event. None of these challenges made any progress on the Chapter 1 bar. Of course, this puts a hefty brake on some important progress for Season 2 in Diablo.
Not only does Chapter 1 of the Season Journey allow you to progress the main story, but it also contains some Seasonal Aspects that are powerful additions to each class. You also won’t be able to progress the subsequent chapters in the Journey until this issue is resolved. It’s highly unlikely that this problem lasts for more than a few hours or a day, and I’ll be sure to update this guide if the status changes.
For the time being, you can still get your Vampiric Powers, and you can still level up your character. I recommend taking part in the Blood Harvest events so that you can level up even faster and get the gear you need before going back to the Season Journey.
