Diablo 4: Quick Guide On The Mechanics Of Ashava

Posted: May 13, 2023

For a lot of people, the Ashava fight isn’t that hard. But during my leveling progress, I had found some issues


For Server Slam weekend, Ashava is going to spawn every three hours in the bottom right-hand corner of the Fractured Peaks in an area called The Crucible. The easiest way to get to her is to take the Bear Tribe Refuge Waypoint and head south. If you check your Mac, you’ll see an event marker (Ashava, The Pestilent) and once you get into the area, a timer will show up as well.

Diablo 4 Quick Guide On The Mechanics Of Ashava


So, is she a hard boss to kill? Not at all. Her mechanics are pretty simple overall. It’s not like we’re playing Dark Souls here. 

Starting with the Bite Attack, it’s just directly in front of her. So, stay at her side or behind her and you’ll be fine. She can do this once or twice. And I call it a Swallow Attack because I die instantly each time.

The more dangerous attacks are her Slam Attacks. I see attacks because they change. In Phase 1 and Phase 2, she takes one arm and slams it down. But there’s a big huge circle that telegraphs it, so just dodge out of the way. Then, when you are into Phase 3, she’ll start to use two arms - two elbow claw things. Those slam into the ground and then sweep back doing a ton of damage. This one covers a lot of area though, so try to get to her side so you don’t die.

Hopefully, at this point, you’ll have a bunch of people using crowd control effects on her and she’ll get stunned. You’re going to want to stun her as fast as possible because after that, she has a broken arm and does reduce damage. The stun bar is right under her health and I start from the center and moves outward. Once it fills up, she’ll be standing for 12 seconds.

Now, the stun status for bosses will treat them like they’re affected by every CC (Crowd Control) status. So, if you have a build that does more damage to like slowed mobs, it’ll still apply now. If you have enough Diablo 4 Gold, you can start crafting such builds right now. I’m just very curious to see if it will double dip, though.

Let’s say you deal bonus damage to shield enemies and you deal bonus damage to slowed enemies. Will they stack? If so, that’s going to be pretty big. This is also the best time to keep a vulnerability to give everybody in the area that extra 20% damage. Though the ones that pick off range characters are the Sweep Attacks, she’ll step forward and do a full 360 sweep, stop and then do a half swipe. 

At any point, she might leap through the air in a random direction if she’s going forward. She’ll kind of take a step back and then jump, but the side jumps are a bit hard to catch. I recommend not using movement abilities to get to her like this because she’ll be attacking you when you chase her like that. And, you can rest people when they die. It makes it faster, and it saves a person 10% durability on their items.

Then there’s Poison everywhere. Ashava spits poison and creates three pools that stay on the ground and, just like any other game you played, don’t stand and crap on the ground. Granted sometimes, you’ll have to run through it. This is why you need more than just knowledge of the fight. You need the right stuff.

As you can see, at level 20, even with higher-level party members, I still get rocked. And to try and make myself feel a little better, this wasn’t World Tier 2 and was the first spawn, but we all know better. So, that just means stack poison resistance on your gear. You can drop an Emerald in your jewelry to give poison resistance. And you can choose the poison resist elixir in Kyovashad, which is called Weak Elixir of Poison Resistance.
