How to Defeat Tchort in Diablo 4

Killing it is quite the Tchore.

While playing through the Diablo 4 Campaign, most bosses will be as simple as throwing damage at them until they’re dead. This isn’t a bad thing per se, as it keeps the pacing smooth while still throwing the odd wrench in there. To contrast though, some bosses prove to be much harder than others. Take Brol for example, who before his nerfs was the bane of those trying to complete Act III of the Campaign. One boss fairly early on has tripped some people up, so we’re here to help. Here’s how to defeat Tchort, Herald of Lilith, in Diablo 4.

How Do You Kill Tchort in Diablo 4?

Tchort first appears during the later stages of Act I in Diablo 4, when exploring the Horadric Vault with Neyrelle. The latter needs a book, that unfortunately is within the demonic clutches of Tchort. As such, you’re forced to deal with the problem a hero such as yourself could only do: by absolutely obliterating it.

Tchort’s more basic attacks like her ranged lightning bolts and swipes are easy enough to understand. Either tank them if you’re feeling beefy or dodge out of the way to avoid the damage. It’s the other attacks that are more or less cause for concern. The first attack is a shove, which can throw you into the cyclone you found in the middle of the room. This does sustained damage to you, so get out of its radius as fast as possible. The other attack is the several fire orbs placed around the arena, which detonate dealing serious AoE damage. While your first instinct may be to run around and kill them all, this is actually wasteful. Instead, you want to destroy one or two and then stand as far away from the rest as possible. Doing this will save you time and health while also letting you get back at Tchort quickly.

Keep all this in mind, and you should have no problem taking down Tchort. You’ll also get six pots from reaching each milestone on its health bar, which should help your survivability considerably. Once it’s killed, you’ll find the Death Harnessed: Theories of Rathma book in the center of the room. Grab it, and bring it to Neyrelle to continue on your quest.
