How to Defeat Avarice in Darksiders 3

by Larryn Bell

Players can face Avarice after they have received the Flame Hollow in Darksiders 3. Avarice uses a lot of projectiles and is very mobile during the fight for someone carrying so much junk on them. We’ll go over what you need to do to defeat Avarice in Darksiders 3 so that you can continue hunting the other sins and obtain another Hollow Form.

How to Defeat Avarice

Avarice is located inside a museum in the Atrium of Greed, which is just beyond the room with the large T-Rex skeleton.  To get to this area, you must make your way through the Catacombs and then navigate past the bomb children until you reach the ground floor of the museum. Swing across the bars above the stairs to hop onto the T-Rex bones, then jump over to the scaffolding to reach the walkway that lines the room leading to the Atrium of Greed.

Once the boss battle with Avarice begins, there are several attacks you should look out for. First, Avarice will jump in the air and leap toward you, landing on the ground with a powerful (and painful) thud. Dodge out of the way as soon as you see him jump.

Avarice will also swipe at you with his grubby hands, usually in patterns of three. You can interrupt this series of attacks with a well-timed dodge into an Arcane Counter attack. The Volcanic Charge counter with your Flame Hollow works well, as the residual fire damage will help gradually whittle down Avarice’s health.

At some point, Avarice will leap up and hop across several pillars of junk surrounding the center of the room. Avarice will throw objects at you while atop these pillars, so be ready to dodge out of the way. You can’t really fight him while he’s on top of the pillars, so just keep dodging and wait for him to jump back to the ground.

After you’ve depleted some of his health bar, Avarice will pick up large objects like a bathtub or clock and will try to smash you with them. He’ll then use the objects as a weapon, swinging them from left to right to try to hit you before lobbing it at you. As always, be ready to dodge as he moves for each attack.

The fight is almost over when Avarice picks up a refrigerator. He’ll swing it around and try to jump-smash you with it as he did with the other objects, only this time Avarice will also sprint straight toward you with the fridge to try mowing you down. When the refrigerator glows and Avarice moves it in front of his body, be prepared for him to slam forward into you.

Keep dodging, making sure to get in some swings or counterattacks whenever possible. When Avarice leaps onto the pillars, you have just enough time to heal yourself or consume a Fortification Shard or another consumable if need be. Use your Wrath attack to chunk down Avarice’s health during battle and save your Havoc Form for when you’ve almost finished him off.

Once you have defeated Avarice in Darksiders 3, make sure you go around the room and pick up any Artifacts or Adamantine collectibles strewn about the room so that you can make a trip back to Ulthane and upgrade your weaponry
