The weekly Diablo 4 Twitch drops are broken up by class. Week 1 provides cosmetic rewards for Rogue and Necromancer, while the second week is focused on Sorcerer, for example. If you don't care about some of the classes, you only have to pay attention to the week you need to watch Diablo 4 streams to earn the rewards.

All you need to do is watch any stream under the Diablo 4 category to earn the rewards, and remember that once you've watched three hours, you have to go into your Twitch inventory and claim the first reward to earn time for the six hour one.

Here's how this all breaks down:
