Knowing how to change the World Tier in Diablo 4 is pretty useful. Maybe you’re finding your current tier too easy, and want to bump it up for a real challenge. Or perhaps the tier you’re on is proving to be too much, and stepping a level down will give you a chance to grind until you’re powerful enough. Whatever the case may be, it’s a useful mechanic. Here’s how it works.
How to Change World Tier Difficulty in Diablo 4
There are two ways to change the World Tier difficulty in Diablo 4. The first one is from the main menu. All you need to do is click the Change World Tier button, which you’ll find on the right side of the screen. This is definitely the simplest way to do it. Once you’re in the game, you can’t just switch the World Tier willy-nilly. Like, it’s not just an option you can toggle in a menu. Instead, the developers went with a system that honestly works better within the world of the game. See, in every major stronghold, you can find a statue of Inarius, aka the World Tier Statue. All you have to do is interact with it and select the Tier you want.
And there you have it, those are the two ways to change the World Tier difficulty setting in Diablo 4. If you want to know more about them in general, check out our World Tier 1 or 2 Choice guide. One thing that we do have to mention is that the first World Tier Statue you’re likely to run into is in Kyovashad. You can find it south of the Cathedral of Light. It’s in the northeastern part of the city. Take a look at the map screenshots below to see where to find it. And if you need help getting into the city, check out our guides titled How to Enter Kyovashad and Rite of Passage, Holy Cedar Tablets.
