Diablo 4 – Should you skip the Season 1 campaign?
The wait is finally over – Season 1 of Diablo 4 is now live and players from every corner of the globe can’t wait to get past the waiting queue and jump into the Seasonal Realm. I spent the pre-season having a blast with the Sorcerer and Barbarian, but I’ve decided to choose a Rogue for Season 1 after Blizzard’s needed adjustments to the previously overpowered classes. I thought it was a good time to change things up a little.
So, you’re ready to make a brand new character in the Seasonal Realm, and you’re faced with some decisions. One of them is whether to bypass the main campaign and jump straight to the endgame with your fresh character. It’s like ignoring the simple starters and going straight for the delicious main course – sounds exciting.
The Benefits and Drawbacks of Skipping the Campaign
Before we rush into any choices, let’s consider the advantages and disadvantages of this strategy. Season 1 introduced new features, but is bypassing the campaign a smart decision? There’s no need to worry; I’m here to provide some insights on this topic.
If you’ve already finished the campaign with your pre-Season 1 character, you’re familiar with the process. When creating a new character, you’re given the chance to bid farewell to the campaign, saving you the effort of repeating missions you’ve already completed. It’s like skipping reruns of a show you love, although revisiting some episodes can sometimes be a nice change of pace.
The only downside to skipping the campaign is potentially missing out on certain loot. You might be graced with epic gear on your adventure, but if you bypass straight to the endgame, you could miss some exciting loot drops. But don’t fret! Even if you go directly to the Season Journey and start the Season 1 questline with Cormond, you’ll still have opportunities to earn even better loot. It’s a situation where you can’t really lose!
How to Bypass the Campaign in Season 1 of Diablo 4
Now, let’s discuss the specifics of how to skip the campaign in Season 1 of Diablo 4. Here’s the thing: to activate the skip campaign option for your Season 1 character, you must complete the campaign with your Eternal Realm character at least once. There are no shortcuts. If you haven’t beaten the campaign yet, get ready for an amazing adventure, as you won’t be able to bypass the story.
But for those brave individuals who have already completed the journey, pay attention. When you reach the character creation screen, design your daring character and at the end of the menu, you’ll notice the welcoming words “Skip Campaign” inviting you. Click on it, and voila! You’ll appear directly in front of Cormond in Kyovashad, prepared to begin the Season 1 questline. My suggestion? Don’t hesitate and start chatting with Cormond immediately.
So, that’s all you need to know about skipping the campaign in Season 1 of Diablo 4. Now, go on, take on the upcoming adventures, and may the loot gods always be on your side!
