With the launch of Diablo 4 fast approaching, players who participated in the pre-release betas like the Server Slam may have some goodies waiting for them when logging in for the first time. Blizzard offered participants the chance to earn certain special cosmetic items for their characters by completing specific tasks during the open beta that ran from March 24-26 and the Server Slam beta, which ran from May 12-14. Diablo 4 players who took part in these betas will want to claim any rewards they earned during those periods in order to show off their accomplishments to other players.
These special cosmetic items are more enticing than ever before now that Diablo 4's MMO-like approach to co-op allows other players to see each other in-game without necessarily being in a party. Players are likely to encounter others while in a hub like Kyovashad or while participating in a World Event such as battling Ashava the Pestilent. With how difficult some of the beta and Server Slam rewards were to obtain, players who earned them should make sure to show them off.
All Diablo 4 Beta and Sever Slam Rewards
There are four total beta rewards that players will be able to claim at Diablo 4's launch depending on whether they met the requirements to earn them during the beta or Server Slam periods:
- Initial Casualty Title: Reach Kyovashad with one character
- Early Voyager Title: Reach level 20 with one character
- Beta Wolf Pack Cosmetic Item: Reach level 20 with one character
- Cry of Ashava Mount Trophy: defeat the world boss Ashava the Pestilent with a level 20 character during the Server Slam beta
The easiest of these rewards to earn was the Initial Casualty Title which only required players to reach Kyovashad with one character during either beta period. Kyovashad isn't that hard to reach given that it's the major hub area of one of Diablo 4's main five areas, Fractured Peaks, that players will go to after completing the game's opening segment. Players will be able to access the titles they've earned via their character profile and display them so that others they encounter around Sanctuary will see the title above their character next to their name and know what kind of player they are.
To get the next two rewards, players would have had to put a little more effort and potentially spend several hours in the game over the course of the beta. Players who reached level 20 during either beta will receive the Early Voyager Title as well as the Beta Wolf Pack Cosmetic Item, and while a new title is nice, it's Diablo 4's Beta Wolf Pack Cosmetic Item that was a highly sought after reward since it gives players a cute sleeping wolf pup to display on their character's back. These three rewards were initially made available during the first beta period, but Diablo 4 offered players one more reward during its final Server Slam beta.
The final reward is likely the most sought after of all the beta rewards as it was only available to obtain during Diablo 4's Server Slam beta and was by far the most difficult to acquire. To get the Cry of Ashava Mount Trophy, players had to have defeated the world boss Ashava the Pestilent with a level 20 character during the Server Slam, a feat that is not easy when the level cap is only 20 and coordinating a raid party was difficult with players of all skill levels participating in the beta. For those who successfully defeated Ashava, they will be able to display one of her massive fangs on the back of their mount when Diablo 4 releases.
Diablo 4 releases June 6 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
