game pauses

  • hi guys having a problem where my game pauses for about 5-6 secs then goes back to normal happen every 5-10 mins what can i do?
  • Hey kingpin,

    I do have some things you can try that I have seen help with pausing/freezing like this before.

    • Run the Diablo III repair tool.

    • Reset In-Game Options.
      1) Select the game in the Battle.net Desktop App and click Options .
      2) Click Game Settings.
      3) Click on Reset In-Game Options.
      4) Click Done and launch the game normally.


    • To be on the safe side make sure operating system and the drivers in the computer are up to date.

    • It is possible another program could be interfering with Diablo III. To see if this is the case please run your computer with login items disabled. https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/200483
