Diablo 4 has many quests and challenges to keep players engaged during the main campaign and the endgame. Since the list of new dungeons and missions keeps getting bigger, let’s take a look at how many acts, story quests, and seasonal quests there are in Season 4: Loot Reborn.

With new Diablo 4 seasons coming every three months to add more content and an expansion that will make its way sometime this year, players might find it difficult to track their overall progress while completing missions.

To help you with this, we’ve compiled a list of all main story quests, acts, side quests, and seasonal missions in Diablo 4 Season 4.

How many acts are in Diablo 4?

Lilith in Diablo 4
Diablo 4’s main story pits players against Lilith and her forces.

The story of Diablo 4 is broken up into six acts, along with a prologue before the game gets underway and an epilogue to conclude the campaign. Check out every act in the game below:

  1. Prologue: Wandering
  2. Act 1: A Cold and Iron Faith
  3. Act 2: The Knife Twists Again
  4. Act 3: The Making of Monsters
  5. Act 4: A Gathering Storm
  6. Act 5: Secrets Bartered, Fates Sold
  7. Act 6: Dance of the Makers
  8. Epilogue: From the Wound Spilled

Diablo 4 lets payers tackle Act 1, Act 2, and Act 3 in any order, as they focus on individual regions that can be discovered at any time. However, all three of the opening acts must be completed to access Act 4, and the rest of the story must be done in order.

Thanks to Diablo 4’s scaling system you don’t have to worry about Act 3 being any tougher than Act 1, just complete the quests at your leisure.

Completing the campaign ensures your character is powerful enough to tackle the endgame activities.

There are a total of 97 quests in Diablo 4, all of which must be completed before rolling the credits on the story and reaching the endgame content.

Act 5 spans the longest time, giving players 20 quests in order to set up the finale in Act 6. Meanwhile, Act 4 should take the least time to complete, as it is only made up of six main quests to serve as a bit of a breather after the intense opening.
