There are three world bosses in Diablo 4: Ashava the Pestilent, Wandering Death Given Life, and Avarice the Gold Cursed. These bosses can spawn in five different locations across Sanctuary:
World bosses are powerful enemies that can be challenging to defeat, but they offer valuable rewards, including legendary items and gold.
Ashava is a massive insectoid creature that spreads plagues and diseases. She is one of the most difficult world bosses to defeat, but she also drops some of the best loot. Ashava's signature ability is a cloud of poison gas that follows the player around the arena. To avoid this attack, players need to stay constantly moving. Ashava also summons smaller insectoid creatures to aid her in battle. Players need to clear out these minions quickly to avoid being overwhelmed.
Wandering Death is a spectral warrior who is constantly regenerating health. He is one of the most mobile world bosses, and he can be difficult to pin down. Wandering Death's signature ability is a teleport attack that allows him to move anywhere on the battlefield. Players need to be prepared to dodge this attack at any time. Wandering Death also uses a variety of scythe attacks, which can deal heavy damage. Players need to stay close to Wandering Death and avoid his attacks to defeat him.
Avarice is a miserly demon who is obsessed with gold. He is one of the most tanky world bosses, and he can be difficult to kill. Avarice's signature ability is a gold shield that protects him from damage. To break this shield, players need to collect gold that is scattered around the arena. Avarice also summons smaller demons to aid him in battle. Players need to clear out these minions quickly to avoid being overwhelmed.
