Diablo 4 players can continue leveling up their character even after finishing the campaign and Nightmare Dungeons and Strongholds are some of the many features that help with this. If you’re a completionist, check out this guide on the max level in Diablo 4 and how long to reach it.

Diablo 4 will have seasonal play which means that every season, you’ll have a Battle Pass to finish and new challenges to complete. Another thing that makes seasonal play so refreshing is character-building as you’ll always have new builds/classes to try out.

Leveling up your characters is the key to progress in Diablo 4. You get the ability to upgrade healing potions and new skill points become available at every level. Having said that, you only get a limited number of skill points with this method, and knowing the max level helps a lot in planning your build.

How many skill points can you get in Diablo 4?

You can get a maximum of 58 skill points in Diablo 4 to unlock skills, passive abilities, and upgrades for your character. This is based on the number of skill points you get by leveling up from level 1 to 50, and the Renown system.

The skill points you get by the Renown system are common for all characters.

You can get 48 skill points by leveling up from 1-50 in Diablo 4. Moreover, accumulating 200 and 800 total Renown in a region will also reward two skill points, and considering there are five regions in the game, completing all the available Renown challenges should help you get 10 skill points. As a result, every character you make should get a maximum of 58 (48 + 10) skill points.
