Blizzard is hosting one final Diablo 4 open beta period before launch and this time, everyone is invited. This test is called the Sever Slam and the purpose is for as many players to test the servers as possible.

Although Diablo 4 is a live-service game that will continue to get updates and tweaks, it has gone Gold, which means development is over. That said, you can experience the latest Diablo 4 update during Server Slam weekend.

How to Play the Diablo 4 Beta Server Slam

Everybody is invited to the Diablo 4 Beta Server Slam. To play the Server Slam, all you need to do is download Diablo 4 on your device and get started.

Diablo 4 Sever Slam Ashava Schedule Explained

During the Server Slam Beta, Ashava, the first World Boss, is available to fight. They were available during the initial open beta test, but only for a very short window of time. Ashava will be available to fight much more frequently during the Server Slam test. You can face them starting on May 13 at 9:00am PT, after which they will continue to spawn every three hours. The last time Ashava will spawn is May 14 at 9:00am PT, so make sure you slay them at least once to claim your unique rewards for the full release.
