Hardest bosses in Diablo 4
When it comes to hard bosses, we place them on this list based on the players’ feedback and ours. Also, we judge the boss’ difficulty based on how many times we died fighting them, and how much time it took us to complete the fight.

|2||Elias, Hatred’s Remnant||70|

This boss list will be constantly updated as time goes by and we get new updates and seasons.
Where can bosses be found in Diablo 4
Bosses can be encountered in multiple locations, and this adds a layer of excitement to the game as not all enemies will be just Elites or regular monsters. You can find bosses in the following places:
- Open world
- Side quests
Diablo 4 boss mechanics
Every boss in Diablo 4 has their own mechanics and attack patterns, however, they all have two things in common.
- Health marks
- Stun bar
Every boss has certain stages in their health bar, and they are identified by a triangle. If you look at a boss’s health, you will notice that either those triangles are placed equally apart, or they are not there for no reason.
When you deal enough damage to a boss, they will lose one health mark, and in return, they will drop 1 or 2 health potions depending on the boss fight. Also, a boss might add one new attack or increase the frequency of an existing attack after losing a health mark.
Health marks can be in the following health thresholds:
- Every 25% (4 marks)
- Every 33% (3 marks)
- Every 50% (2 marks)
Just like any enemy, bosses can also get stunned, however, there is a catch. Casting a simple Crowd Control ability is not enough. You have to cast enough abilities to get the Stun bar of the boss up to 100%.
Both soft and hard crowd control effects contribute to increasing the Stun bar. Some examples would be Fear, Stun, Knockdown, and so on.
After getting up to 100%, the boss will become Stunned and unable to move or cast any abilities for a short period of time. Any enemies the boss summons will also get stunned. This will last for a few seconds before the boss gets back to normal and the Stun bar goes back to 0%.
What do you get for defeating bosses in Diablo 4
Defeating a boss can reward you with Gear of any rarity, gold, and experience.
Moreover, since bosses are mostly in Strongholds and Dungeons, the rewards of those activities are indirectly tied to the boss.
So ultimately, a boss will also reward you with a Legendary Aspect and Renown points for completing a dungeon or Stronghold for the first time.
