Minimum and Recommended Requirements for Diablo 4

Check your Network

If you are well above the Minimum or Recommended Requirements, then you are on the wrong path. It is the Network Issue that causes Stuttering in Diablo 4. Let’s check whether we are right or wrong here.

You can have a test: Simply get a second system around you and play Diablo 4 on that system. If that works just fine, then it is with your system and not the internet.

You can run the WinMTR to read and analyze the WinMTR data to check whether the connection issue is here or not.

Then again, you can also try the D3 IP Address. After performing the WinMTR test, you can check the Packet Loss. A figure of zero or close to zero should be there.

In case you have a higher percentage, then it means it is related to your system and not Diablo 4 or Blizzard. In that case, you can simply check your Internet Connection. Connect with an Ethernet, remove devices, check back with the provider, restart the modem, and so on. The typical stuff… Or, you can also check the guide here for Connection Troubleshooting.

On the other hand, if you don’t have the Packet Loss and have Host-Timeout, then it means there is some other issue with you. It is the server masking for security reasons.

Now that you know what’s the issue here, below we got somewhat methods to help you out. We don’t guarantee that it will fix it for you because the network issue, as well as the in-game issues, are related to the servers.

Then again, it might not be that way at all, or could be you. So, going through the things we will mention below might help you out.
