How to defeat Ashava in Diablo 4

You can weaken Ashava in Diablo 4 by constantly hitting her with Crowd Control skills that have effects like Knock Down, Taunt, Freeze, Stun, Daze, Chill, Slow, and Immobilize.

Doing so fills the yellow meter under her health bar and staggers her. Then, you’ll have 12 seconds to damage her without any interruptions.

Ashava specializes in dealing poison damage to players.

Apart from this, we have the following tips and tricks that you can use to defeat Ashava in Diablo 4:

  • Wear poison-resistant gear because the majority of Ashava’s attacks inflict poison damage that takes away your health over time.
  • You can evade Ashava’s consecutive sweep attacks by being really close to her or behind her. This strategy is more reliable than trying to get out of the attack’s AoE.
  • Move away from any circles that appear on the ground because this indicates Ashava’s imminent arm attack.
  • Avoid touching any poison clouds that Ashava releases during the battle as they can inflict heavy poison damage.

Do note that these tips are for players who’ve already reached level 20 which is the maximum level for the Diablo 4 Server Slam beta. Even in a group of 12, defeating this boss is quite challenging due to her high HP, high explosive damage, poison-inflicting abilities, and wide range of attacks.

If you’re below level 20, you might want to avoid facing Ashava in the Diablo 4 Server Slam beta. The progress won’t carry over to launch anyway, and you can eventually defeat her with a high-level build.
