As soon as you beat the main campaign in Diablo 4, you can start taking down World Bosses that spawn around the map in Diablo 4. However, they are limited to spawn timers, and they are hard to track down with so much time in between, which is why I have the timers explained for you in this guide. Here are the Diablo 4 World Boss timers explained.

World Boss Spawn Times in Diablo 4

World Bosses spawn every 6 hours in Diablo 4 or four times per day based on the timer. So if Ashava spawned at 1 pm EST, then you can expect the next spawn to be at 7 pm EST. Based on all the recent reports for World Bosses around Sanctuary, they are always around six hours apart. However, there are some caveats to the main timer.

Some World Bosses have spawned at times like 1:15 pm EST, for example, which is one of the times when I took on Avarice. The next one will still be around six hours later, but there can be changes by the minute in some cases, which is what makes the respawn timer hard to track in Diablo 4.

I was used to the beta timers when I did my first playthrough of the game and I expected there to be scheduled times for each of the bosses in set locations. This isn’t the case though. On top of the vague six-hour window for World Boss respawn timers, there is also a random spawn. Each of the World Boss locations could be any of the three.

Everyone will get a notification that a boss is about to spawn 30 minutes before the event. Sometimes, there will be a specific boss. Other times, it’s a toss-up between Avarice, the Wandering Death, and Ashava. Before you head into your next fight, check out our guide on how to defeat Ashava in Diablo 4.
