Highlights:

  • There are 90 Tiers to the Battle Pass
  • Purchasing the Premium Pass gets you access to the premium rewards, including armour and weapon customisation
  • All rewards are purely cosmetic and do not affect the gameplay

If you're diving back in for the new season, you might be wondering if the Battle Pass is worth the money in Diablo 4 Season 4. There's a new pass each season, filled with cosmetic items that may tickle your fancy.

The Loot Reborn Battle Pass features plenty of divine-themed items, with some of the most angelic-looking items in the game so far. There's plenty to unlock, but is it all worth your time or money?

All rewards in the Diablo 4 Season 4 Battle Pass

In total, there are 90 Tiers to the Loot Reborn Battle Pass, with 28 Free Tiers and 62 Premium Tiers.

The vast majority of the rewards are cosmetic items for your characters, including either transmog costumes for your equipment, or decorations for your online profile. Some of the Premium rewards in the Battle Pass include:

  • Awoken Demigod Armour Sets
  • Awoken Demigod Mount Armour
  • Purified Demigod Thoroughbred Mount
  • Divine Banner Mount Trophy

There are plenty of new looks to acquire for your characters, your weapons, and your mounts. If you choose the Accelerated Battle Pass you can pay extra to skip 20 Tiers and unlock the Wings of Hell's Legion emote.

Smouldering Ashes are rewards from the Free Tiers that you can use to upgrade the Battle Pass in a way. You can spend them on Season Blessing XP boosts, which will level up the pass more quickly if you perform a specific action like killing demons or completing quests.

How long does it take to complete the Battle Pass?

The amount of time it takes you to complete the Diablo 4 Battle Pass will vary from player to player, but it could take you anywhere between 40 and 80 hours depending on your playstyle.

I’m yet to complete any of the Battle Passes myself as they’re a huge time commitment, but several players have chimed in with how long previous seasons took to complete. Some users on the Steam Community forums reckon it can be done in 20-40 hours, while others think a more reasonable estimate is around 40-80 hours.

The Battle Pass is progressed by collecting Favor, which is earned by simply playing the game. Completing quests, dungeons, and killing mobs will contribute in some way to progressing the pass. As a general rule of thumb, if your character is levelling up, you’re doing it right.

To level up the pass more quickly, you should look to complete as many Season Journey Objectives as possible. These are similar to the weekly challenges you see in Call of Duty, and task the player with performing specific actions in the game. Complete enough of them, and you’ll earn yourself a huge chunk of Favor.

Of course, if you want to unlock the tiers more quickly, you can purchase them all with real money - but it will cost a fair amount.

Is the Diablo 4 Battle Pass worth it?

It’s ultimately up to you to decide if the Diablo 4 Battle Pass is worth purchasing, but in my opinion, it’s not worth picking up.

There are some very nice cosmetic items included in the Battle Pass, but none of them affect gameplay. You don't need to purchase the Battle Pass to access any of the seasonal content such as quests, items, or skills - all of these are provided for free.

If your main goal is to have a cool-looking character, then you might want to consider purchasing the pass. However, Diablo 4 has plenty of amazing-looking cosmetic items in the game for free which you can find without spending any additional money.

My best advice would be to hold off on purchasing the Battle Pass at the start of the season and see how far you get through the free version. Since you don’t earn any additional XP boosts for purchasing the pass, you’re not missing out on anything by not purchasing it when it first becomes available.

Towards the end of the season, if you find that you’ve managed to progress the Battle Pass a fair way, then it might make sense to put down the money for the pass as you’ll be instantly rewarded with all the cosmetic item tiers you’ve unlocked so far.
