Diablo 4 has hit a few snags since release, but no one can deny that it offers a great campaign with a villain we all love to hate. While you’re blitzing through the story, EXP is easy to come by, but it can be a real pain otherwise. The Mother’s Blessing event boosts EXP and Gold gain in Diablo 4. According to the official correspondence, “This bonus stacks with the Urn of Experience to maximize your experience gains.” The problem is, there is no ‘Urn of Experience’ in the game, so what could it mean? Let me show you what the Urn of Experience is in Diablo 4 answered, or at least what Blizzard probably means.
What is the Urn of Experience in Diablo 4? Answered
The Urn of Experience Blizzard refers to is more likely the Urn of Aggression. This Urn can be found in the Season Blessings section of the ‘Season’ menu. You can earn the Ashes required for these bonuses for free as you progress through the battle pass. By the time you reach the end of the pass, you’ll have enough Ashes for all of these bonuses but it makes sense to invest in the Urn of Aggression first to reach max level a little faster.
If you’re trying to improve your EXP gain as much as possible, you should always have an Elixir active. Even if you don’t need their primary effects, Elixirs offer a 5% Experience boost for 30 mins. It doesn’t sound like much, but it does add up.
If you’re leveling a new character from scratch, Dungeons are a solid place to earn EXP, but they aren’t created equally. For EXP farming, the best places to go include:
- Aldurwood (Scosglen)
- Blind Burrows (Hawezar)
- Guulrahn Canals (Dry Steppes)
Although Dungeon layouts are randomized, these are typically the fastest to clear and offer the best EXP yield based on completion time. Blind Burrows, in particular, is a well-known speed-farming location and is a preferred Dungeon for pushing high tiers. With any of these, I recommend mixing things up if you’re starting to get bored of running Dungeons on repeat. The EXP is nice, but not at the expense of killing the game for yourself.
Although they aren’t quite as good for EXP, World Events are worth participating in, as are World Boss fights.
When is the next Mother’s Blessing event in Diablo 4?
Only Blizzard knows when or ‘if’ another Mother’s Blessing event will go live. That said, the event has been met with a massively positive reception from the community. Booster events are popular in many live service games and draw players in despite no new content. Sea of Thieves has done this for years with their tremendously popular Gold & Glory weekends. I can’t say for sure, but it makes sense for Blizzard to follow suit with future Mother’s Blessing events.
