How do I fix the Diablo 4 error code 300008?

You can fix the Diablo 4 error code 300008 in a number of ways depending on the root cause, but given that the issue is most likely server-side, the best course of action is to simply wait until the issue resolves itself.

However, if all the above resources are pointing to stable servers, we recommend the following steps:

  • First, launch a web browser or other online application to see if your connection issues are isolated to Diablo 4. If they also aren’t working, the fault almost certainly lies with your internet connection. We recommend ensuring you’re connected to the internet via ethernet cable to rule out any issues that may be affecting your wifi. It’s also well worth restarting your PC and router to clear the memory cache on both systems.
  • If the problem is isolated to Diablo 4 but there are no reports of issues elsewhere, check with your friends to see if they’re also experiencing the issue or if the error is affecting a specific platform in Diablo 4 crossplay.
  • Finally, ensure that Diablo 4 is up-to-date by launching Battle.net and navigating to the correct tab from your game library.
