For those bold adventurers searching for a formidable challenge in Diablo 4, look no further than the colossal world boss Ashava. This monstrous entity of pestilence has been spotted in Fractured Peaks, wielding her lethal forearm blades and dousing the ground in deadly poison. Although an ancient journal hints at a way to weaken her, the details have unfortunately been lost to time. If you want to know when you can fight this powerful boss, we’ve got the spawn times and a countdown to each time you can fight them!
Diablo 4 World Boss Countdown
Based on this Diablo 4 World Boss Twitter account, it looks like spawn times happen every six hours or so. The times are not totally consistent, so we’ve adjusted our countdown to trigger every 6 hours, which means that once it has nearly finished ticking down, there will likely be a boss spawn.
Defeating Ashava the Pestilent
Conquering Ashava will require a well-coordinated team effort, as the boss’s immense health pool and damage output make her nearly invulnerable to solo players. Rally your friends and other players to join forces in this epic battle, and a treasure trove of loot awaits the victors.
Ashava is scheduled to spawn in The Crucible, a level 25 area in the southeastern corner of Fractured Peaks. To locate it, head east from Kyovashad, the main hub area. A quest marker and countdown timer will appear on your map 30 minutes before Ashava’s arrival, guiding you to the battleground.
Surviving the encounter with Ashava demands preparation, teamwork, and an understanding of her attack patterns. Equip poison-resistant gear, focus on leveling up to at least level 20, and prioritize joining instances with players in the level 20-25 range. Throughout the fight, stay close to Ashava’s flanks to avoid her sweeping arm blade attacks and be prepared to dodge her other dangerous moves.
To weaken Ashava, utilize skills that inflict Crowd Control effects such as Slow, Chill, Daze, Stun, Freeze, Immobilize, Taunt, and Knock Down. Successfully staggering her will provide your team with a brief window of uninterrupted damage dealing, and potentially shatter one of her arm blades.
By overcoming the formidable and plague-ridden Ashava, players can earn a unique reward, the Cry of Ashava Mount Trophy, achievable by taking down Ashava with a character at Level 20. Additionally, previously offered rewards from the Early Access and Open Beta weekends are being reintroduced, providing another opportunity for players to earn these badges of honor. These rewards, obtained through the shedding of demonic blood, will be granted to players upon the official launch of Diablo IV. It’s important to note, however, that players who have already claimed these rewards during the Early Access and Open Beta weekends won’t need to reacquire them. These rewards include the Initial Casualty Title, awarded for reaching Kyovashad with any character; the Early Voyager Title, earned by leveling up a character to Level 20; and the Beta Wolf Pack Cosmetic Item, also obtainable by reaching Level 20 with any character.
