How to get Twitch Drops for Diablo 4 to earn the Orichalcum Collection — Oricalchum Quarterstaff now live!
With the release of Diablo 4 Season 2, Blizzard has made a new batch of in-game cosmetic items available via Twitch Drops, the Orichalcum Collection. Like the programs available for Overwatch 2, Hearthstone and World of Warcraft, players will be able to unlock items for their characters by viewing Twitch streams with drops enabled. This week, the Oricalchum Quarterstaff — which can be used by the Druid class — is available as a drop.
Here’s how to earn these cosmetic rewards from Twitch Drops, starting with linking your Battle.net account to Twitch.
How to connect your Battle.net account to your Twitch account
It’s a straightforward process that will only require logging into Twitch and then going to your Battle.net settings — but keep your Battle.net Authenticator handy if you use one.
- Login to your Twitch account.
- Go to the Battle.net Connections pane. If you’re not already logged into your Battle.net account, you’ll be prompted to do so.
- Scroll until you find the Twitch option, and click +Connect.
- Follow the instructions.
- Watch the streams.
Twitch channels that have drops active are labeled as such (there’s a “Drops Enabled” message near the stream categories). A great way to keep track of your progress is at the Twitch Drops Inventory page, which constantly updates with how close you are to earning the drop.
Once you finish watching for the required amount of time, a clickable message will pop up in the stream chat telling you that your drop is ready to be claimed, or you can claim it via the Drops Inventory page. You’ll receive the confirmation that you got it at that time, and you can always check the Drops Inventory page later to review successful acquisition.
Note that you don’t have to currently own Diablo 4 in order to earn these rewards; once you acquire the game the rewards will be available for you.
When to watch to earn rewards
To earn this week’s weapon appearance, you’ll need to watch any Diablo 4 stream on Twitch that has the “Drops Enabled” tag for a total of four hours. You can quickly find channels with Drops Enabled through a search, or by browsing the Diablo 4 game page on Twitch.
Here’s the schedule for this week’s drops:
- Start Time: November 6, 10 a.m. PDT
- End Time: November 13, 11:59 a.m. PDT
- Cosmetic: Oricalchum Quarterstaff (Druid)
The whole event will last for four consecutive weeks, including the following items:
Week 1 (Oct 17-Oct 24): Oricalchum Blade (Necromancer, Rogue, Sorcerer) Week 2 (Oct 24-Oct 31): Oricalchum Mallet (Barbarian, Druid) Week 3 (Oct 31-Nov 6): Oricalchum Greatsword (Barbarian, Necromancer)
- Week 4 (Nov 6-Nov 13): Oricalchum Quarterstaff (Druid) — Live!
