Diablo 4: World Boss Times and Location

Some new features are introduced in Diablo 4, like World Bosses. They are different from the regular bosses like the ones in Diablo 3 or before. However, most gamers fail to locate a World Boss during their gameplay, which is the main problem as it does not stay for long.

In this guide, we will let you know the spawn times and location of these world bosses, so you can reach there on time and defeat them. Gathering a group together before interacting with these bosses is recommended, as it will be easier.

Key Takeaways:

In Diablo 4, World Bosses are powerful adversaries that players can face after completing the campaign. Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Whispers of the Dead: After completing the campaign, players unlock timed activities known as “Whispers of the Dead.”
  2. Three World Bosses: These activities involve combat with three World Bosses: The Wandering Death, Ashava the Pestilent, and Avarice the Gold Cursed.
  3. Unique Mechanics: Each World Boss has its unique set of mechanics and abilities. It’s crucial to learn and counter these mechanics to survive the encounters.
  4. Spawn Timing: World Bosses spawn every six hours, and their locations are randomized.
  5. Notification: Players receive an in-game notification approximately 30 minutes before a World Boss spawns. This notification helps them prepare and reach the Boss’s location.
  6. Diablo 4 Boss Tracker: For more precise tracking of World Boss locations, players can follow the Diablo 4 Boss Tracker account on Twitter.
  7. Team Up: It’s recommended to gather some friends or fellow players before taking on these powerful Bosses. Teaming up provides additional support and abilities, increasing your chances of success.

Facing World Bosses in Diablo 4 can be a challenging but rewarding experience, so be prepared and strategize accordingly for these epic battles.

What Are World Bosses

World Bosses are special kinds of bosses that come into your gameplay after you finish the campaign mode. After players finish it, they will get Whispers of the Dead. Players must finish these activities in the allotted time to get Grim Favors.

Defeating World Bosses is one part of these activities. Until now, there are three of them in Diablo 4: The Wandering Death, Ashava the Pestilent, and Avarice the Gold Cursed

World Boss Times

After some research from multiple sources, we conclude that all the World Bosses spawn every six hours around Sanctuary. However, their exact spawn location is random as it keeps changing. 

To give players a hint, the developers of Diablo 4 came up with the procedure of notifying the gamers around 20 to 30 minutes before a World Boss is about to come through an in-game notification.

Along with that, the boss’ location is also highlighted on the map. The early announcement lets you gather your friends, so defeating these bosses will be relatively easier. Moreover, you also get to reach the location on time due to this pop-up notification.

It is worth noting that a World Boss will spawn for only 15 minutes so, you must deal more damage in less time if you wish to defeat them in time. 

Expected World Boss Locations

As already mentioned, the spawn points are randomized, but there are several spots where the bosses have spawned too many times, so we consider them as potential locations. Moreover, these are different for each World Boss:

Avarice, the Gold Cursed Wandering Death Ashava, the Pestilent
Fields of Desecration Caen Adar Saraan Caldera
Seared Basin Saraan Caldera Scosglen

 If you are not having much luck finding the World Bosses in these points, you can always visit the Diablo 4 boss tracker Twitter account to learn about their spawn. Furthermore, players can also use Game 8’s Diablo 4 tracker for bosses if they want.

Strategies To Defeat World Boss

Team Up With Your Friends

It is always better when multiple people combine their skills and abilities to defeat a boss. This lets them gather more ground and deal more damage in less time because time is of the essence. 

Learn Their Mechanics

Every World Boss has their own set of attacks and mechanics which they use against us. If we learn to counter them, we can take much less damage while dealing more with them. When players successfully kill them, they get a lot of loot from the bodies. 

Take the example of Avarice the Gold Cursed; this boss has Gold attached to its central body. Players can target those areas to get collect the gold. However, it has a strong attack that can make you drop all the gold you possess. Therefore, try to counter it simultaneously. 

Don’t Die

As they all are special bosses, their abilities deal much more damage than the regular bosses. Hence, taking a lot of healing abilities along with a good defense is a good way to drop in a fight. Ensure you have all the stuff ready before the six-hour cool-down period.

Staying Alive through the whole fight is necessary as it saves time, and you can contribute more in defeating the World Bosses.

Achieve Milestones

During the fight, always keep an eye on the World Boss action bar. A milestone is shown by a red triangle which is pointing downwards. Once the health bar drops till that point, the triangle turns gray and the boss drops a health potion. 

Use the potion to recover your health bars. Moreover, the boss also unlocks a mechanic for themselves which they use to kill you. Therefore, look for this and improvise.

Controlling Abilities Is The Way To Go

These bosses are weak against control moves like slows and stuns, which prove effective on them. Therefore, using controlling abilities back to back combined with other aggressive attacks can prove fatal.

Ending Remarks

This is all about World Bosses and their times and locations. They can be tough to defeat, but following the instructions and keeping your friends close can lead you to victory. Ensure you are tracking the location from third-party tracker applications to get close to them.
