Wandering Death, one of the three world bosses alongside Ashava and Avarice in Diablo 4, lives up to its name.

Remember that world bosses share their spawn locations. This means that Wandering Death will spawn at the spots where Avarice and Ashava previously did in Diablo 4. Before the fight commences, Diablo 4 will notify you by showing a flashing icon on the screen. This icon also accompanies a start timer to prepare yourself for the world boss fight. Refer to the image below to learn the various spot world bosses, and Wandering Death appears in Diablo 4.

As for the spawn times, Diablo 4’s world boss Wandering Death appears 4 times throughout the whole day in a randomized manner. And that unfortunately makes keeping track of their appearance times difficult. However, we suggest checking out Diablo 4 World Boss Timer. The Twitter account accurately shares its appearance times and notifies its followers.

How to Defeat Wandering Death in Diablo 4

While Ashava and Avarice have similar attack patterns in a few instances, Wandering Death in Diablo 4 stands out among the three world bosses. It brings new attack patterns for players to learn and adjust their gameplay. That said, we highlight Wandering Death’s attacks and how to deal with them.

  • The most common attack Wandering Death does is it pulls the ground towards itself in a straight line. Players standing in its trajectory will take damage. However, dodging the attack is simple, and it only requires you to move sideways or behind the boss.
  • The second attack by this boss is when it drops whirlpools of shadows around the map. These are not static and keep moving around the area. Any enemy caught in this whirlwind will become vulnerable and gradually take damage. The best action against these is to avoid getting hit by the whirlwinds. Keep moving around them, avoiding them.
  • Once Wandering Death’s health drops to 60%, it pulls a new trick out of its pocket. See those four hands of the boss? Wandering Death slams it down in a 1-2-3 pattern. Before it starts the attack, you will see the silhouette of the AoE on the ground. Hence, to avoid it, strafe away to a distance. Going to the sides is always an option. However, the AoE covers the sides in some cases.
  • The final attack also begins once it hits 60% health is a spin, where he shoots a beam of shadow for one whole cycle. The boss then slowly moves around the place while shooting the beam. There is another variant of this attack, where this beam becomes three-way. The best way to dodge this is to quickly move to the bottom of the boss. At the same time, try to keep pace with its spin. If there is one attack that will kill you, it is this one.

The best course of action to deal with Wandering Death’s attacks is to equip armor that protects you from shadow damage. Since this boss exclusively uses shadow-based attacks, and physical attacks, grabbing trinkets that nullify their intensity always help. Additionally, at the potion master, you can craft yourself an elixir of shadow resistance.

How well the potion protects you against shadow attacks depends on what the potion master creates. Since most of them are level-gated, the best course of action is to bring an Elixir of Shadow Resistance, which unlocks after you hit Level 45. For 30 minutes, it gives you 20% shadow resistance. Pair that with a ring that gives you shadow resistance, and you will have an easier time on the battlefield.
