Hi i am completely new in D3 and just started playing a week ago. I have a few question i hope someone here could help me out with.

OK, so i started playing D3 and since i don't have anyone to ask or guide me through. I started with the PTR server not knowing that it was only for Testing. And noob that i was (and a bit curious) after a week i was already playing rift and grift when i decided to click the copy button from the character page thus deleting my PTR character.

Now since i would start over again, i need some advice. I have been reading a lot and found out that Season4 is coming out (or is it out already) and i want to try it and make a seasonal character.

My question is if i start a seasonal character do i need to do the Acts or i can just jump into adventure mode? Which one is more advisable.

And is there any advantage in playing a seasonal char against a normal one?

Lastly if i start playing now, and s4 starts, will my char be able to continue?

Hope someone could help me out.

PS
And i am also in need of friend in game.

THanks!!

You need to complete Campaign mode with a Seasonal or non-Seasonal character to access Adventure mode. Unlocking it in one mode grants access in the other as well.

As Prosbloom mentioned, playing a Seasonal character in Season 4 gives you early access to a few Legendary items which are exclusive to the Season until it ends. You can also earn a cosmetic pet and portrait frames by completing Achievements in the Season Journey interface, and earn parts of the Conqueror's set by getting a Seasonal character to level 70. You can find more details on Seasonal rewards here.

You can absolutely continue playing a non-Seasonal character once the new Season starts. If you want to play in Season 4, however, you'll need to roll a new character.

Oh, one last thing: if you want to keep your progress, you'll want to play on the live server, not the PTR which is designed for testing. Hope that helps (and thanks to Prosbloom and Wichtelman for jumping in to help, too)!
