Diablo 4 Beta World Boss Times and Details

Craig Robinson

Blizzard Entertainment has revealed that the Diablo 4 Beta is coming with a world boss, which players participating can group up and fight the world boss. The Diablo 4 Ashava beta battle is expected to go live four times during the preorder beta, and the open beta, offering a total of eight opportunities to try the world boss, and see what the MMO-like aspects of Diablo 4 will offer both social and potential character progression. Let’s take a closer look at when you can expect to fight Ashava in the Diablo 4 beta weekends.

Diablo 4 Ashava World Boss Beta Times

Firstly, the Diablo 4 Ashava world boss is only accessible in the open and preload beta at particular times. The times are as follows.

  • March 18 at 11 AM, 13 PM, 11 PM. and 01:00 PDT
  • March 25 at 10 AM, 12 PM, 10 PM. and midnight PDT - This is based on the old notes, so either these are still valid, or they are like the ones above.

While this is scheduled on the pacific coast of the USA, we have translated the times below for the rest of the world. Here are the times and dates you can expect for both beta weekends in some of our readers most common timezones.

Timezone Slot 1 Slot 2 Slot 3 Slot 4
CDT (Texas, Louisiana, Minnesota, etc) 13:00 PM 15:00 PM 01:00 03:00 AM (March 19 or March 26)
EDT (New York, Florida, Maine etc,) 13:00 PM 16:00 PM 02:00 AM 04:00 AM (March 19 or March 26)
GMT (Portugal, Ireland, UK, etc) 18:00 PM 20:00 PM 06:00 AM (March 19 or March 26) 08:00 AM
CET (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Scandinavia, etc) 19:00 PM 21:00 PM 07:00 AM (March 19 or March 26) 09:00 AM
IST (India) 22:30 PM 00:30 AM 10:30 AM (March 19 or March 26) 12:30 AM
JST (Tokyo, Japan) 03:00 AM (March 19 or March 26) 05:00 AM 15:00 PM 17:00 PM
AEDT (Sydney, Australia) 05:00 AM (March 19 or March 26) 07:00 AM 17:00 PM 19:00 PM
NZDT 07:00 AM (March 19) 09:00 AM 19:00 PM 21:00 PM

During these times, players can gather around the location of the Ashava world boss in Fractured Peaks. From there, group up with players via the Diablo 4 coop party formation, or hang around in the world to tackle the Ashava boss fight. It is likely to take place in the Citadel area, but we will update that if it’s not.

The Crucible is a large flat area with nothing in it at the edge of the Fractured Peak.

Also, there’s a few teasers as to what to expect from the boss. We know the boss has a boney arms that are weapons, so there’s likely to be continuous weapon swings, and perhaps some heavy cone attacks to dodge. There will also likely be charges, if Lost Ark’s world bosses are anything to go by and perhaps even a chomp or two.

Remember, the pre order beta will only have three classes, while the open beta will have 5 classes. You’ll get to experience the Diablo 4 world boss beta event a little differently as the open beta will have five class as the weekend tests roll on.
