If you're wanting to get through Diablo 4 with as few setbacks as possible, then you've come to the right place. Although our Diablo 4 review in progress says that the live-service elements detract a bit from the series' greatness, it's still a Diablo game, ergo it can be pretty overwhelming when you're starting out. Fortunately, that's where our handy guides come in.
As with previous Diablo games, you'll be fighting world bosses, taking part in public events, and encountering all manners of weird and wonderful individuals and their fetch quests. You'll also want to keep on top of your builds when levelling so that, when you eventually reach that sweet endgame content, you won't be one-shot killed immediately. Here's every guide on Diablo 4, from builds to waypoints and fast travel, mounts and potions upgrades, and more.
