BlizzCon 2019: Diablo Immortal Gameplay Livestream

A chinese streamer was allowed by Blizzard Entertainment to livestream his Diablo Immortal gameplay for nearly two hours.

The game starts with the hero being rowed through the river by a ferryman.

Ferryman: This is it... the dock for Wortham. That whole village has gone to hell... You sure I can't take you someplace else?

Demon Hunter: Yes, I am. Wortham is beyond the forest I take it?

Ferryman: Aye, follow the road and be on your guard. Unfortunate things happen to travelers in that forest...

Demon Hunter: Do not worry. I have seen my share of dangers before.

Alert: Head through the forest to the town of Wortham.

Demon Hunter: There is a madness behind that wolf's eyes.

Demon Hunter: An infestation... What has defiled these woods so thoroughly?

It didn't take long to reach level 2. Level 3 was just about 10 kills away as well.

Demon Hunter: With every step, the forest's rotten nature reveals itself further... I must be nearing the corruption's source.

You need to approach items on the ground and tap to loot them.




In order to accept a quest, you must approach the NPC and tap onscreen to start a dialogue. After accepting the quest, you take a portal to Ashwold cemetery.

Wortham Guard: Ah, an adventurer! Good. The undead are assailing Ashwold Cemetery! This portal should get you there. I'm sure they'll appreciate any help they can get.

Quest: Head into Ashwold Cemetery.

You arrive to The Outskirts in the cemetery. A red arrow in front of your character aims at the quest location informing you how many meters away you are from the destination.

You can destroy environmental props and doodads.

Grave Robber: There she is, bring her back to Gordon!

Samina: Please, no! Don't hurt me!

UPDATE: Kill the Grave Robbers chasing Samina (0/3).

Someone help me! Please!

When you complete the quest, a red question mark shows up above the NPC.

Samina: Thank Akarat for your help, stranger, but my husband... He's still in danger! Our home is to the north. He's all alone with those bandits! Please, don't worry about me... help him!

UPDATE: Head to the Groundskeeper's Home.

When you loot an item, you will see if it is an upgrade when green up-arrows pop onscreen.

Gordon the Jackal: Pah, you got lucky. Come on boys, let's deal with this little interruption...

Players need to click on objects or NPCs with a gear icon above them to channel interaction.

UPDATE: Help Ulric stand up.

Ulric: A thousand blessings upon you, friend. Ashwold's always had the occasional bandit. Nothing like this, though. What luck brings you to my door?

NOTE: Potential easter egg, or coincidence. Ulric is a name from Beowulf, but also one of the Mercenary Hirelings in Diablo II Act V. Unknown if this is the same guy.

Demon Hunter: I have my reasons. However, I heard rumors that the dead had begun to rise in Ashwold. Do you know anything about that?

Ulric: Of course! The whole guard's been fighting them for weeks. My son joined up at the Crypt of Honored Dead just this morning. If you find him, I'm certain he'll help you.

Level 4 earned.

Ulric: Thank you, again... I'm off to find Samina!

UPDATE: Head to the Crypt of Honored Dead.

18+ Kill bonuses still happen in Diablo Immortal.

Shrines can be found in the game. This Frenzy Shrine provided increased critical hit chance. The buff is seen beneath the character frame.

Lethes: Stop wasting my time, you peasant! I know her body was buried here... Where is Asylla's tomb?

NOTE: This is most likely Queen Asylla -- King Leoric's wife.

Wortham Guard: The Queen's tomb... was hidden. The dead... deserve... their rest.

Lethes: Wrong answer. The dead serve me! A fact you will learn soon enough. You! It's your turn, so I suggest you speak quickly. Where is the tomb?

Bramden: I don't know! None of us do! Only the queen's handmaiden knew its location, I swear!

NOTE: Lethes is a female necromancer who seeks the worldstone to reshape order in Sanctuary.

Xul: Lethes, stop this! Your wanton disregard for life ends here. You will be brought to justice...

NOTE: Xul is the necromancer hero introduced in Heroes of the Storm.

Lethes: Xul... how I tire of your jealous attempts to suppress my potential. No. Now, with the power of the Worldstone at my command, I will obtain true dominion over the dead. Your entire lethargic order will be swept away and replaced by one with the ambition to reshape this corrupt world. You are a relic, old man, and you are no longer needed.

UPDATE: Defeat the undead attacking Xul (0/7).

Upon killing the Enraged Phantom, he dropped a legendary crossbow named Flamespite which increased the player's Willpower +12, Vitality +17, Damage +11, Demolition (Active)

Xul: Thank you for your aid, adventurer... It appears I must go and teach my former student another painful lesson. The guard still lives, it seems. I leave him in your capable hands...

Bramden: Ugh, what a day. Certainly didn't expect to get choked by some death mage when I left stead this morning...

Demon Hunter: That "death mage" isn't past killing for the information she seeks. That handmaiden is in grave danger. I need you to help me or that girl is as good as dead.

Bramden: Light's mercy, you're right... wait, I know! Captain Azmir at Guard's Watch! He knows the maid! If you head there right away, there may still be time!

Reaches Level 5 - New skill unlocked: Strafe.

UPDATE: Head to Guard's Watch

Bramden: Good luck, friend! I'm headed back to my family...

Pool of Reflection found - Gain Bonus Experience. An EXP icon appears above the character.

With this buff, you have a high chance to spawn Experience Globe (purple orbs). Each Experience Globe grant +67 Experience.

[table id=122 /] [table id=86 /]

Location: The Ossuary

UPDATE: Defend Guard's Watch from the undead (0/25).

So far at level 5, the player has looted 235 gold. Here he shows the inventory again. The character stats appear on the left of the screen.

Rare Elites appear in the mini-map as their color code before they appear onscreen. Here is a blue rare elite pack of Hungry Corpse.

The Demon Hunter skills are shown here:

Reaches Guard's Watch (Safe Zone)

UPDATE: Talk to Captain Azmir.

Captain Azmir: What do you need, stranger? And be quick, I've got enough on my plate dealing with these rotten corpses...

Demon Hunter: I'm looking for Queen Asylla's former handmaiden. The girl's life is in grave danger.

Captain Azmir: Gods, I'm sorry... It's been a long week, but that's no excuse... Look, the handmaiden's home isn't far, just up the trail from here beyond the graves. I'd join you if I could but...

Demon Hunter: It's alright, I understand. Don't worry, I will find her.

Captain Azmir: We'll hold our own. Best of luck.


It seems Diablo Immortal also has a massive map that allows you to drop pins. These are like GPS pins that guide you to the destination.

UPDATE: Find the Handmaiden.

Reaches level 7. (It's been 17:55 minutes since the player started playing Diablo Immortal)

Location: The Handmaiden's Cottage

UPDATE: Kill the ambushing undead (0/6)

UPDATE: Talk to Xul.

Xul: Death has a way of following you, stranger.

Demon Hunter: I didn't kill her if that's what you're thinking...

Xul: Ha, of course you didn't. No, I recognize my old student's handiwork. The body is still warm too. Hmm, you may wish to stand back... reanimation can be, unpredictable.

Xul: Rathma, guide my voice to the soul of the recently slain. Return to us, child, we have one final task for you.

Handmaiden's Spirit: No, NO! Stop torturing me! I didn't do anything! I told you everything!

Xul: It's all right... No one can hurt you any more. You're safe now. That woman... the one who hurt you, what did she want?

Handmaiden's Spirit: She wanted the location of the Queen's tomb. I told her! I didn't want to! But, she... she made me. They buried the Queen in the old garden. Hid her tomb underneath, so no one would ever disturb her rest... I-I failed Asylla. I failed my queen.

Xul: Poor girl... I'll stay here-- ensure she's properly interred. You, however, need to get to that tomb. Do not let Lethes near the Queen's body. May your soul find rest young one...

NOTE: Special events seem to appear as green exclamation marks on the top-left, beneath the character frame.


NOTE: 19 minutes since the game started, this is the first time a treasure chest appears. It seems to spawn rarely because something new happened here. The entire mini-map flashed a green border, and a chest icon materialized.

Location: Queen Asylla's Tomb

5 minutes remaining


NOTE: If you enter the main objective's dungeon, before completing the special or bonus quest, it automatically fails -- as seen in the image below:

UPDATE: Investigate the Queen's Tomb.

UPDATE: Inspect the Queen's Burial Vault.

Reaches Level 8.

Skeletal Mage: The Queen's spirit will lead the way to the Black King, Leoric. Soon my master, Lethes, will have his wretched soul... and the damned shall bow before their new monarch.

UPDATE: Kill the Skeletal Mage

The Skeletal Mage is immune to knockback. He has a frontal beam attack, and rotates. He teleports. Summons several green spheres that form a line, then chase the player as missiles.

Skeletal Mage: Even if you reach the manor, her task will not be halted. The ritual... is underway.


Reward: Exquisite Epaulets (Yellow item)

[table id=122 /] [table id=86 /]

UPDATE: Head to Ashwold Manor.

NOTE: You can filter the item quality you wish to auto-equip upon looting, or which types to not auto-equip. In this case, White items, Blue items, and Yellow items.

You can also view your character's gear in a live animated render. You can rotate the character in this page. All your stats can be viewed here, and how much experience you need until the next level.

Legendary Crossbows: Flamespite and Blacktalon.

Yellow item: Exquisite Epaulets.

When a character dies in Diablo Immortal you can revive at the corpse (Ignore the countdown, that is what remains before the BlizzCon 2019 Diablo Immortal demo's 20-minutes gameplay limit ends)



NOTE: Sometimes when walking by a corpse, if it is near you, it will show a gear icon -- which means you can interact with and loot the corpse.

At 39:03, something unexpected happened. I am still trying to figure it out. A treasure chest spawned out of the blue. Either the Treasure Chest spawned as reward for a 20 Kills bonus or upon completing the special event's objectives. I am leaning on the latter.

If you don't loot a Legendary item that drops to the ground, eventually it will despawn.

Barbarian legendary off-hand - Stormbringer.

Barbarian legendary weapon - War Axe of the Ancients.



During the Barbarian livestream, the player reached a location he hadn't explored with the Demon Hunter and Wizard before. The quest continues to be Ashworld Cemetery.

Xul: Ah, hello again. I assume you followed the surge of energy here as well? Lethes never did have the patience for subtlety. Come, we must find the source of this profane rite. At its apex, we will find my wayward apprentice.

UPDATE: Follow Xul into the Manor.

Destroy the Ritual (0/1)

Kill the Bone Golem (0/1)

After killing the Bone Golem...

UPDATE: Talk to Xul.

Xul: A necrotic barrier... quaint. Well, there are always three of these rituals. Go and put an end to the others.

UPDATE: Find and destroy the Rituals (0/2).

The next Ritual is protected by a Decay Golem.

The last Ritual is protected by a Blood Golem.

Alert: Blood Golem has started to Charge. Break the shield! 4 seconds.

UPDATE: Talk to Xul.

A special event is found with a light green exclamation mark.


NOTE: Hmm... unsure, but this has potential for an easter egg. The first ever Blizzard eBook was written by Robert B. Marks. In Diablo: Demonsbane, there was a Captain Hagan of the Brennor City Guard. Siggard and Sarnakyle helped him fend off a demonic attack. The eBook was later printed in the Diablo Archive.


Lethes: Damn you, Xul. Always so persistently afraid of my talent... Well, no more! I am beyond you now. Rathma himself will fear my name... and you... your suffering begins now!

While Lethes channels her ritual on a tomb, you fight Lethe's Simulacrum.

The demo ended for the Barbarian.


Lieutenant Hudson: Adventurer, I need your help. My patrol has been fighting back a rather persistant undead assault and one of our guardsmen was gravely wounded. If we can put an end to the undead assault, Rayne can get the aid he needs. Will you help us?

UPDATE: Reach the Undead Assault.

The monk session ended before he could complete the event.





First treasure goblin I have seen in the Diablo Immortal livestreams.

[table id=122 /] [table id=86 /]


When you click a Conduit Shrine, a message onscreen says: Acquired Lightning Power.

Another special event - WANTED: PAKURU

Kill Pakuru (0/1).


This event starts at Lord's Rest when you approach "A Curious Corpse" -- with a yellow exclamation mark that starts a quest.

Demon Hunter: Hmm, what is that shimmer?

Objective: Pick up the necklace (0/1).

Power... in exchange... for freedom. Take the amulet. Free me...

NOTE: A Sapphire Necklace spawns on the ground with a gear icon. Click to interact.

Objective: Kill the Conniving Spirit (0/1)
