What is the Season Journey in Diablo 4 Season 3?

The Season Journey lets Diablo 4 Season 3 players complete objectives that count toward the battle pass and offer additional rewards. Season 3 called the Season of the Construct, brings in new objectives. They are broken up into seven chapters, with increasingly difficult challenges. Luckily, players don’t have to complete all objectives in a chapter to receive its rewards. Each chapter only needs a certain number of completed objectives. Chapters can only be completed once per Season per account.

Season Journey objectives list in Diablo 4 Season 3

Season Journey objectives can only be finished in the Seasonal Realm. Characters created in the Eternal Season before Season 3 will not be able to complete these objectives. You’ll need to create a new seasonal character to begin your Diablo 4 Season Journey. Remember that all your Diablo 4 renown carries over this time. That means you start with bonus skill points, paragon points, potion charges, and obol capacity upgrades. If you’re looking for more renown, you’ll have to clear Strongholds, finish Dungeons, and side quests again.

Progressing in the Season Journey nets you Favor and Chapter Rewards. The former helps you progress through the new Diablo 4 battle pass. And the latter can be anything from more Favor to Caches of loot and Legendary Aspects.

Here’s a list of all Diablo 4 Season Journey objectives in Season 3.

And that covers the Diablo 4 Season 3 Journey. Remember that these Season Journey rewards are in addition to the free and premium battle pass rewards. While they do not provide Diablo 4 renown, the battle pass offers sweet rewards for those willing to complete its challenges.
