As of March 18, Ashava's portal seems to appear 30 minutes after the designated spawn time and gives players 30 minutes before the battle begins.

During these times, players can confront the Ashava World Boss alongside up to twelve other players.

This is a first for the franchise and a new cooperative event that Blizzard hopes to push with Diablo 4.

Players that obtain early access to the upcoming open beta will have four timeframes to face against Ashava, and four additional ones once the open beta opens up for everyone next weekend.

Where to Find Ashava, The Pestilent World Boss – Location + Map

Players can find the Ashava World Boss Spawn in The Fractured Peaks’ bottom right region, The Crucible.

Once players arrive, they will see a portal appear during the spawn time and a timer indicating how much time is left before Ashava spawns.

When Ashava appears for battle, the camera will zoom out due to the scale of this battle, indicating the event has begun.

Can I Join a World Boss After It Spawns?

Yes, players will have a short time frame after a World Boss spawns to join the fight.

Make sure to head to the location of Ashava’s spawn with plenty of time to ensure you can participate in this grand battle.

Once the camera zooms out to show the battle area, you’ll know you are in the World Boss fight.

What is a World Boss in Diablo 4?

World Bosses are high-intensity boss fights new to Diablo that offer greater challenges to players. They are menacing and intended to be taken down by a group.

Thankfully, up to twelve players can join in fighting each World Boss. Due to this co-op mechanic, the monster’s move set is dedicated to a larger party.

Ashava, for instance, will spread poison clouds to group players together and pounce from side to side to cover more ground quickly. Her attacks are vicious, and it’s best to bring players with all sorts of abilities to deal with her.

You can see just how Ashava compares to in-game players in the image below.

As a tip, knowing what every class in the beta brings can be useful to determine which one suits the party’s individual unique playstyles.

World Bosses are also noticeably larger than players. This is meant to emphasize the overall scale of the battle players will partake in.

How to Stagger Ashava World Boss

To stagger the Ashava World Boss, players must deal Crowd Control until the bar under the health bar is filled.

Once this bar fills up, Ashava will become helpless for 12 seconds, and her arm blade will break for the remainder of the fight.

Crowd Control is dealt when an attack causes a status effect. Usually, Crowd Control abilities are meant to deal with large groups of smaller enemies.

But, since their effects do not affect World Bosses, they serve in your fight by filling the Stagger Meter.

Crowd Control effects include Stun, Freeze, Chill, and Knockback, to name a few.

The image below shows the Stamina Meter slowly becoming filled.

This neat feature is meant to elevate any build players aim to create rather than punish them for focusing on Crowd Control abilities.

This is one of the best ways to get Ashava’s health down and make managing the fight easier.
