Diablo IV: How to Defeat Avarice, The Gold Cursed (World Boss Fight)



Diablo 4: How to Defeat Avarice, The Gold Cursed (World Boss Fight)

Diablo 4 has three world bosses that spawn randomly in the World of Sanctuary and players will be able to participate in the World Boss Fight event, once they have completed the main story of the game. One of the World Bosses available in Diablo 4 is Avarice, The Gold Cursed. The spawn point and time of Avarice are randomized like the other world bosses in Diablo 4. However, if you get managed to reach the location of Avarice at its spawn time, you will get to battle it in a boss fight.

In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Avarice, The Gold Cursed in Diablo 4.

Where to Find Avarice, The Gold Cursed in Diablo 4

As mentioned above, the spawn location and spawn time for the World Bosses are randomized in Diablo 4 and you never know which world boss you would get to fight. There is a 6-hour gap in each World Boss Fight and every boss fight is time limited. Meaning, players would have to defeat the world boss in the given time period. As there are three world bosses available in Diablo 4, they all have a chance of spawning at the following locations.

  • The Crucible in Fractured Peaks region.
  • Seared Basin in Kehjistan region.
  • Saraan Caldera in Dry Steppes region.

Avarice, The Gold Cursed would spawn in one of the three locations at the spawn time of the World Boss. You can wait at any location and as the time gradually comes near, the name of the world boss would be shown on the right side of your screen. Once Avarice has spawned, players would have to defeat it in under 15 Minutes. Otherwise, it would disappear and they would have to wait for it again to appear in the next world boss event.

How to Defeat Avarice, The Gold Cursed in Diablo 4

Like any other major boss in Diablo 4, Avarice, The Gold Cursed has a similar health bar but with 4 Triangles. The Triangles represent its phases and it means Avarice has four different phases and with each triangle down, Avarice will grow more aggressive and stronger. As the World Bosses have relatively higher HP than the normal bosses, it would be required to have more players around you to help defeat Avarice. Make sure to team up with other real players before going to the spawn point of Avarice. You can also find a number of players already on the spot so feel free to visit and wait for Avarice to spawn.

Once you and the other players get to Avarice World Boss Fight, follow the following steps to defeat it.

  • You and the other players should focus on the Stagger Bar under the HP Bar of Avarice. Deal with Vulnerable damage by using the Crowd Control Attacks and Spells on Avarice. As the Stagger Bar reaches full, Avarice will start to take more damage than the regular output damage. It is one of the key points of the fight that you and other players need to focus on for defeating Avarice under the time limit.
  • Avarice has a number of moves up its sleeves and it will use a couple of moves more often in the fight. One of the moves is the Gold Vomit where it will vomit gold out of it. It will usually do it when any player is standing beneath it. Make sure to stay on its side and use your skills to avoid the Gold Vomit attack. Another attack that it will do often is the Teleport. Avarice will use teleportation to charge throughout the arena battle. You need to keep your distance from the portal to avoid the charge attack of Avarice.
  • As you lower its HP to half, it will start to use its other attacks. It will use Mallet Attacks that create shockwaves to resonate throughout the arena. As you see it raising its Mallet, keep your distance from Avarice and stay away from any pillars in the surroundings. Once the shockwave past you, you can continue the aggression on it to deal damage. It will also use the Chest it’s holding and will swing it at 360 angles. You can easily avoid it by getting beneath it and using AOE attacks to deal damage to it.
  • One of the other usual attacks that it will use is the ground stomps which can be devastating for you if not avoided. Getting hit by any of the stomps can lead up to other of its attacks and you can lose your HP very quickly. As you see it stomping on the ground, get behind it or get to a safe distance to cast spells or skills.
  • One of the most useful tips is that pick up the Healing Potions after taking down every triangle of its HP. Use your potions to heal and pick the ones that are dropped on the ground to keep your HP to max throughout the fight.

Other than the attacks, keep your focus on building up the Stagger Bar to defeat Avarice, The Gold Cursed under the Time Limit.
