How to Unlock Specializations in Diablo IV


Specializations in Diablo IV allow for players to obtain additional passives for their class of choice. These passives can potentially change the way players approach combat, with some of these abilities adding Combo Points to Core Skills. Or even go so far as to provide unlimited energy for brief periods of time when certain conditions are met. These are something players will want to immediately unlock when given the chance.

Players can unlock Specializations in Diablo IV starting at level 15. Upon reaching level 15, access the character screen and navigate to the newly appeared Specializations menu. Select the first Specialization to track the corresponding quest on your quest tracker located on the right-hand side of the screen. After completing this quest, you will receive Specializations upon reaching specific levels.

This includes:

  • First Specialization – Level 15
  • Second Specialization – Level 20
  • Third Specialization – Level 30

Each Specialization will be different according to class. Additionally, each quest is unique as well and provides a little bit of backstory to each of the individual classes. However, once you unlock your Specializations, keep in mind that you can only have one active at any given time. That said, you can switch between any of the three freely. Which means you don’t have to stick with a Specialization you may or may not enjoy using.

Diablo IV will launch on June 6, 2023 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, and its Early Access beta weekend will be held March 17-20, 2023. The open beta will run March 24-27, 2023.
