How to Access the PTR

To participate in the public test, you must have a Diablo III game license attached your account in good standing (i.e. it hasn't been suspended or banned). In addition, you will also need to download and install the desktop app if you have not already done so.

    Step 1: Create a PTR account. To create a PTR account, log in to Account Management and double-click on your Diablo III game license; this will bring you to the game management page. On this page, click "Create a PTR account."

    If you've participated in any previous Diablo III PTR (including the Reaper of Souls beta), the "Create PTR account" button may not appear. This is because you've already created a PTR account and can therefore skip this step.

    Step 2: Once you have created a PTR account, installed the desktop, and logged in with your credentials, select "Diablo III" from the main menu on the left-hand side of the application.

    Step 3: On the Diablo III screen, there is a drop-down menu right above the "Play" button (note that this may say "Install" if you do not have Diablo III currently installed). Select "PTR: Diablo III" from this drop-down menu before proceeding.

    Step 4: You should now have the option to install and play the patch 2.0.1 PTR.

The 2.1.0 PTR is available in all supported languages, and accounts from all regions are eligible to participate.
How to Copy Your Characters to the PTR

The option to copy your existing Diablo III characters from your live account to the PTR will be available and can be done directly through the PTR client. However, only one region per account can be copied at a time. So, if you choose to copy characters from your account in a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost.

    Step 1: Log into the live game and log out.

    Step 2: Log into PTR client and create a level 1 character. After you're done, return to the main character screen.

    Step 3: Click on the "PTR Copy" button located in the upper right-hand corner. (The PTR Copy button will not appear in-game until you have created a new level 1 character.)

    Step 4: Select your region.

    Step 5: Click "Copy." This will copy all characters on your account from the selected region.

    Step 6: You will be disconnected from the PTR client.

    Step 7: Log back in. Your copied characters will be available for play.

Please note that you can only copy characters from one gameplay region at a time. If you choose to copy characters from a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost.In addition, you can only copy characters over to your PTR account once every 24 hours. Attempting to copy characters before this cooldown is up will result in an error.

As a reminder: Any progress made on the PTR will not transfer over to your live account.
