Mastering Progression in Diablo Immortal

Mastering Progression in Diablo Immortal: A Comprehensive Guide

Fred Bahnson 


If you’ve been immersing yourself in the world of Diablo Immortal, you’ve likely experienced the exhilaration of swiftly progressing through levels and unlocking various skills. The game’s initial stages make it feel effortless to reach levels 20, 25, or even 30 within a few play sessions.

However, like many mobile games, Diablo Immortal presents a familiar obstacle that players eventually encounter: the “wall.” Unlike previous Diablo games, this wall significantly slows down leveling, requiring a more strategic approach to progress. And no, the solution isn’t as simple as spending money.

In this guide, we’ll explore the XP wall in Diablo Immortal, identify key milestones where progression decelerates, and provide effective strategies to overcome this challenge. Let’s dive in!

Navigating the XP Wall

The first noticeable obstacle appears around levels 31-32 when you’re required to reach a specific level (35) to complete the Zoltan Kule quest. While this may cause a slight delay, it’s merely a precursor to the true wall. After finishing the quest within 15 minutes, you’ll likely find yourself around level 36, with the next goal being to reach level 40 before advancing the story. This is where the real wall emerges, and it’s rumored to become even more challenging post-level 40.

So, what’s the best course of action?

Leveraging the Battle Pass

The primary method of progression in Diablo Immortal lies in leveling up the battle pass. Each level gained provides a substantial amount of XP, and this holds true for both the free and paid versions of the battle pass.

To level up the battle pass effectively, focus on completing the objectives listed. These objectives grant points that contribute to new levels. Here are the main activities to prioritize:

  1. Bounties: Participate in the daily bounty quests, even though they may seem repetitive or mundane. While tasks like “kill 50 spiders in the Dark Woods” might lack excitement, they grant XP and contribute to battle pass progress.
  2. Challenge and Elder Rifts: Monetization in Diablo Immortal revolves around selling “crests” that enhance Rift rewards, particularly in terms of legendary gem drops. Think of Rifts as loot boxes that require completing a level to open. Engaging in rift runs of any kind not only provides XP but also contributes to battle pass advancement.
  3. Dungeons: Revisit story missions you’ve previously completed and run them as solo adventures or in groups. Dungeons yield XP, valuable loot, and certain ones even propel the battle pass forward.

It’s important to note that the game undergoes a significant shift around this point. Prior to reaching the XP wall, progression relied heavily on following the story, similar to the traditional Diablo gameplay experience. However, after encountering the wall, the game encourages daily logins, diverse activities, battle pass leveling, and chunked story progression as you work your way towards the level cap of 60. The long-term appeal of this approach will depend on players’ preferences and engagement.


As you venture deeper into the world of Diablo Immortal, mastering progression beyond the XP wall is essential for an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. By focusing on leveling up the battle pass through bounties, challenge and elder rifts, and dungeons, you can continue your journey towards the level cap. Embrace the evolving dynamics of the game and make daily engagement a part of your strategy.
