How to Create a PTR Account

  • To participate in the public test, you must have a Diablo III game license attached your account that's in good standing (i.e. it hasn't been suspended or banned). While the 1.0.5 PTR is only available in English, French, German, and Korean languages, accounts from all regions are eligible to participate.

    Step 1: Create a PTR account by logging in to your Account Management page. Select your Diablo III game license, and then click "Create a PTR account."

    Step 2: Download the client from the Diablo III landing page, or from your Games Download page in Account Management. (If you've installed a PTR client already, you should be able to patch up to the most recent build. Patching up to the PTR client will not effect your retail client.)

    Step 3:
    To play on the PTR, simply launch the PTR client and log in normally. You will be connected to the PTR server automatically.
