Everything You Need To Know About Diablo IV Quests

You will encounter hundreds of unique quests as you play through the Diablo IV campaign, and this time around, you even have the option to choose which ones you prefer to play first during the campaign’s first three Acts. The order you choose to play each Act won’t matter, as you will be one step closer to stopping Lilith one way or another through Acts 4, 5, and 6.

We have listed all the quests for all six Acts in Diablo IV so you can get a good idea of where you are in the game and how much farther you need to grind to complete the campaign.

How many Diablo IV Quests are there?

There are around 150 Quests in Diablo IV consisting of Main and Side Quests divided into six Acts, and 97 of the 150 Quests are main. In the first three Acts of Diablo IV’s campaign, you can choose how you progress and complete each Act.

Diablo IV’s main campaign for the first three Acts is non-linear, and you are not forced to play through a strict order of missions. You can choose which of the three Acts you want to play first and jump from one Act to another if you wish.

How long is the Diablo 4 Campaign?

According to an interview with director Joe Shelly and General Manager Rod Fergusson, Diablo 4’s campaign will be around 35 hours long, with Act 5 taking the longest.

As mentioned above, you can expect to complete up to 150 quests in Diablo IV, but you only need to complete Main Quests to finish the campaign. If you focus on Main Quests only, you should be able to complete the game at around the 35-hour mark.

It is worth noting that you can still progress in Diablo 4’s Battle Pass even if you haven’t completed the campaign, but you won’t be able to access specific seasonal content until you complete the campaign. 

You can skip between Acts 1-3 after you complete Diablo IV’s Prologue, but that doesn’t mean you should. Here’s the recommended campaign quest order for a smooth and hassle-free playthrough.

  1. Prologue: Wandering
  2. Act 1: A Cold and Iron Faith
  3. Act 2: The Knife Twists Again
  4. Act 3: The Making of Monsters
  5. Act 4: A Gathering Storm
  6. Act 5: Secrets Bartered, Fates Sold
  7. Act 6: Dance of the Makers
  8. Epilogue: From the Would Spilled

As you can see from the recommended quest order above, following the numerical order of each Act is the most optimal way of progressing through Diablo IV’s campaign mode.

While you can skip Acts during Acts 1-3, playing them in numerical order lets you level up and scale more smoothly from one Act to the next, making gameplay more enjoyable and less challenging.

There is no real benefit to skipping Acts in Diablo IV, as you won’t get better rewards by taking on a more challenging Act anyway. With that said, you can skip Acts for the more challenging gameplay.

Final Thoughts

Like any RPG game, you must complete quests to progress in Diablo IV’s campaign. Fortunately, you can choose how you wish to play the first three Acts in the game before you are placed back into a linear quest order by Act 4.

With over 97 main quests to complete, you’ll be better off simply completing all the quests as quickly as possible so you can move toward the endgame and unlock Diablo IV’s endgame content.
