Blizzard announced in May that the first 1,000 Diablo 4 players to reach level 100 in brutal hardcore mode and, to properly claim it, had their names carved into a statue of Lilith, the game’s demonic villain. announced that it will Now we have our first proper look at this gigantic gameplay monument. And as giant video game statues go, I have to admit that this one is pretty awesome.
I found a picture of the statue of Lilith game radarwas shared by Diablo Global Community Development Director Adam Fletcher on Twitter. It’s big!
This isn’t the first giant sculpture to appear on the Blizzard campus. That honor goes to the famous Oak Statue erected in 2007.

Diablo 4’s hardcore mode is notoriously unforgiving. The main reason is that when you die (which is when you die, let’s be honest), you permanently lose your character and all of your acquired equipment. And that permanent death also applies to disconnects and deaths from bugs, so it’s doubly challenging at the moment, and some quests in Hardcore 100 have ugly endings.
Blizzard recently said it’s working on a way to (almost) eradicate these unfortunate, premature deaths, but it won’t be implemented for some time yet: game director Joe Shelley said last week that amputation protection is only available until Diablo. 4 Season 2, which was said not to unfold, is scheduled to begin in mid-to-late October.
