Season 5 will begin just 3 days later for PC players, on January 15; it's coming soon!

  • North America: Friday, January 15 @ 5:00 p.m. PST

  • Asia: Friday, January 15 @ 5:00 p.m. KST

Start of Era 5
Era in Diablo III are the non-Seasonal rankings. Era 4 has ended and Era 5 is underway.
Era 4 has now ended, and with it, Season 4.

In Diablo III, an “Era” refers to a specific period of time in which non-Seasonal leaderboards are active. At the end of an Era, all current non-Seasonal leaderboard standings will be wiped and players will be unable to attain new leaderboard ranks until a new Era begins. Similar to Seasons, players will be able to view previous rankings in-game and as well as on our website.

Era 4 ended Wednesday, December 30. Era 5 has now begun, and Season 5 will begin on Friday, January 15.

All heroes created during Season 4 have become non-Seasonal and are able to compete on the Era 5 leaderboards. For more information on the end of the Season and upcoming Season rollover, click here.

Thank you for participating in Era 4! We look forward to seeing you in Sanctuary.

Greyhollow Island Lightning Talk
A third Lightning Talk from the Diablo III developers, that was originally presented at BlizzCon 2015, is now available for all to view. Senior Level Designer Matthew Berger talks about the level design of Greyhollow Island, from early ideation through the concept phase and to final development. The talk covers the design of both the monsters and events in the island, which builds on the earlier Lightning Talk about the story and theme of the haunting zone.
