Tips to lower latency in Diablo 4
The first thing you need to make sure is that your net connection is working and stable. This may be an issue with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) or with Diablo servers. Ideally use a LAN cable to connect to your PC or console instead of Wi-Fi for a more stable connection. Here are some things you can do to decrease latency:
1. Close background applications: Programs taking up your internet bandwidth running in the background could be affecting your game. Close all unwanted background programs to free up more bandwidth for the game.
2. Reset your network devices: Resetting your router and modem may resolve your issues.
