Diablo 4 bosses
Here are all the currently confirmed Diablo 4 bosses:
- X Fal, the Scarred Baron prologue
- Vhenard Act 1
- Tchort, Herald of Lilith Act 1
- Lilith s Lament Act 1
- Ashava the Pestilent world boss
- The Butcher random elite dungeon boss
These are all the bosses we had access to during the Diablo 4 beta period, which included the Fractured Peaks region, one of theDiablo 4 world bosses, and a significant chunk of the beginning of the game s story. This meant there were several bosses to find and fight, some of which during the main quest, like X Fal, the first boss you ll fight, or Lilith s Lament at the end of Act 1.
Perhaps most excitingly, we were also able to fight Ashava the Pestilent, a deadly dragon-like enemy and our first experience with the world bosses. World bosses are a challenging activity that will put your build to the test alongside other players. They will also form part of theDiablo 4 endgame, so it s worth taking these bosses on.
X Fall, the Scarred Baron
Shortly upon entering Sanctuary for the first time, you ll face X Fall, the Scarred Baron. They are your first experience with bosses in Diablo 4, taking place during the Darkness Within quest as part of the game s prologue. This large beast has a wide array of attacks at its disposal, from sweeping AoE strikes using a club to summoning minions to help. Despite its size, X Fall can also be surprisingly mobile so stay on your toes.
The Vhenard boss fight, which you ll encounter during The Cost of Knowledge quest in Act 1, can be quite tricky thanks to the small arena. Luckily, you ll have Neyrelle by your side as you take this boss down, so you won t have to do it alone.
Vhenard has multiple stages, including creating an impenetrable barrier requiring you to first eliminate the tough Hell Spawn and Pit Lord enemies they summon. Be sure to stay mobile and bring AoE abilities with you to take these mobs down.
Tchort, Herald of Lilith
Tchort, Herald of Lilith is a boss fight in the Act 1 quest Fledgling Scholar. Tchort is a highly mobile boss that will teleport around the arena, firing off deadly projectile attacks. During the encounter, several fire orbs will spawn around the room that will cause explosions after a set time. Either destroy these orbs or avoid the zone to save yourself from unnecessary damage.
Lilith s Lament
You ll encounter the Lilith s Lament bossfight in the Descent quest near the end of Act 1. This monstrosity of blood and guts can be quite the challenge given how chaotic the fight can get.
It will spawn a variety of AoE attacks on the ground, such as waves and puddles of blood, that you will have to avoid. Having mobility skills like teleports or making good use of the standard dodge will certainly come in handy during this fight. Meanwhile, Lilith s Lament is also attacking you directly with a range of projectile attacks. Stay on your toes and deal as much damage as you can when you get an opening.
Ashava the Pestilent
Ashava the Pestilent is the world boss in the Fractured Peaks. This boss will require good knowledge of the core mechanics, a strong build, and other players fighting alongside you to take down.
With two large blades, Ashava is capable of highly damaging sweeping attacks and ground slams. They re also surprisingly quick, despite their monstrous size. Stay alert of the AoE poison effect and the telegraphed attacks so you can avoid damage, while taking any opportunity you get to go on the offensive.
InDiablo 4, The Butcher, the iconic enemy from previous games returns as a random boss that can invade a dungeon run. If you re unlucky enough to have this hulking monstrosity invade, you will be in for a chance of earning The Butcher s Cleaver, a unique one-handed axe that will be great for the best Diablo 4 Barbarian build. With incredibly high health and damage, The Butcher is a boss to be feared, at least while you re still levelling up your character and perfecting your builds.
That s all the confirmed Diablo 4 bosses in the game right now. If you re struggling to take them down with the tips above, or perhaps you re not a fan of whichever one of theDiablo 4 classesyou chose, take a look at ourDiablo 4 class tier listto find out which is best right now.
