Game interface

The main game window may differ depending on the selected character class - Diablo 4: Interface - Basics - Diablo 4 Guide

The main game window may differ depending on the selected character class. The above example is for the Barbarian class. When playing as a different class, for example, you may see the mana gauge instead of the fury. However, the main elements of the interface are the same for all classes:

1) Health and additional resource - It varies for each class and the second orb can be located on the screen in a slightly different place.

2) Health potions - You can read how many potions you currently have and what is their current limit (default is 4).
