The Wandering Death is the third and final boss in Diablo 4. Players might not want to go up against the huge raw-boned creature from hell, but the reward for taking down the beast makes it worth it. You just need to play it smart and evade the giant’s deadly laser beams and escape his clutches from the infernal realm. Of course, sometimes even the most skilled players will not know how to pull it off.

How to unlock the Wandering Death boss in Diablo 4?

Like Avarice and Ashava, you will need to complete the Diablo 4 campaign to unlock the Wandering Death boss. Once you have completed the main campaign, you only need to wait for the boss to spawn. 

When does the Wandering Death boss spawn in Diablo 4?

The Wandering Death boss spawns every six hours in Diablo 4. To make things easier, a spawn timer will appear on your map 30 minutes before the boss actually appears. The timer will let you know how long you have to make your way to the world boss’ location

So you can hop on your Diablo 4 mount or head to a fast travel point and prepare for the deadly encounter.

How to defeat Wandering Death boss in Diablo 4

Ways to Beat Wandering Death Diablo 4
Wandering Death uses Death Beam in battle.

Now, that you’re face to face with the Wandering Death boss in Diablo 4, here’s how you can take down the monster from the underworld. Disclaimer: it’s not that easy. The massive cadaverous boss has different phases, each marked by specific arrows on its health bar. To make things complicated, each phase will reveal different mechanics. 

But worry not. If you deal enough damage to turn each arrow grey, healing potions will drop around you that can help you push through the nerve-racking battle. Still, make sure you look out for the Wandering Death boss’ two caged souls. He will unleash them when staggered. 

When that happens, make sure you take care of these souls before anything else. Doing so will help you deal massive damage to the deadly world boss. If the Wandering Death boss consumes the souls before you can, you will be in a world of pain. Also, this is the time for you to unleash your most powerful attacks. 

Other than that, you need to beware of the seven death-dealing techniques in Wandering Death Boss’ arsenal. 

  • Death Beam – Wandering Death Boss’ most deadly attack. You’re safe as long as you stay between the two beams and move in coordination with the world boss. 
  • Death Crater – Remember that any attacks inside the crater will have no effect on the world boss. 
  • Death Grasp – You can avoid the Wandering Death boss’ lethal two hooks by observing the ground for any color changes. It will mean that the world boss is going to wreak havoc by shooting two hooks under the ground. 
  • Death Pound – Evading these is not a walk in the park, and to make matters worse, the spikes get worse as the world boss’ health takes a hit. 
  • Death Shout – Same goes for Death Shout. It gets more powerful as the Wandering Death boss’ health deteriorates. 
  • Death Tornadoes – The Wandering Death boss can create three tornadoes at a time and these can deal some serious damage so make sure you’re keeping an eye on your surroundings during the battle.

Well, this was everything to know about the Wandering Death Boss, the third boss in Diablo 4.
