Diablo 4 error 30008 troubleshooting

Diablo 4’s error code 30008 is a DNS error between the client and server, perhaps better understood as a confusion between the player and Blizzard. In order to solve this, you’re going to want to conduct multiple troubleshooting steps.

Note that this can be an improperly attributed error based on server congestion and server-related errors on Blizzard’s side, which means you’ll simply need to wait for a fix.

Complete these steps in order to fix error code 30008:

  • Turn the game off, exit the Blizzard launcher, and attempt to restart the title.
    • If the issue persists:
  • Exit the game, and select ‘Scan and Repair‘ within the Blizzard launcher, and attempt to start the title.
    • Only if you continue to receive error 30008:
  • Enter the command prompt, and enter ‘ipconfig /flushdns’ as an administrator.

After flushing your DNS, relaunch the title. Error code 30008 should no longer arise on this machine. If it continues to do so, your next step is to reach out to Blizzard with the issue and show the attempted steps in troubleshooting thus far. This error code may indicate a more significant issue within the Diablo 4 servers that they should be warned of.
