Here you will learn how to defeat the Blood Rose boss in Dark Wood in Diablo Immortal. You will learn about its attacks and mechanics, how to defeat it and read what rewards you will get after defeating the boss.
Blood Rose is the first World Boss you'll encounter in the Dark Woods. You fought it during one of the story missions, but the World Boss version is much more powerful - has over 13 million health points. You will find it in the western corner of the map. Anyone can join the fight at any time. However, at least 6 people is needed for this fight, and the more the better.
How to prepare?
Preparation includes choosing the right skills, replenishing health potions and, preferably, charging the Resurrection Stones. Ranged skills that deal as much damage as possible in a short time are the best for this fight. It is not worth investing in defense here, because the fight, after you quickly learn the boss's moveset, can be completed almost without taking any damage. Remember that the damage dealt to the boss does not charge your Potions, so watch out for your health (however, it will occasionally drop Health Orbs).
It is a good idea to be accompanied by at least 10 strong heroes. On Hell 1, you have a chance to defeat the boss in about 3 minutes.
The boss has a few basic attacks:
- Beam - always goes from right to left, so it's best to stick to the left side. When you hide in the grass in the very corner, the beam will not reach you. But remember that after a while, it always goes back the other way.
- Summon - the boss summons a small army of wraiths. This is a good time to replenish your Health potions by eliminating them.
- Pull - This is the most important combat mechanic. Once the boss's health drops to around 7 million points, it will start an attack that pulls players towards it - a circle will appear in front of the boss before the attack. The boss will use this move regularly from then on. Anyone within the attack range will start healing the boss, which is of course highly undesirable. Fight from a distance if you have the opportunity - if not, you should watch out for this attack. Creatures summoned by you will not heal the boss.
- Area attack - once the boss has about 5 million points of health, it will start using a new AoE attack. Circles will appear on the arena - if you stand there, you will get hit. Just move away or stand in the gap between the circles to avoid the attack
This will be a disappointment for you - the boss doesn't offer any valuable rewards. You will get around 20k experience, some gold, random items, and 40 Hilts. Basically what you can find while exploring.
The boss, however, is one of the entries you have to complete in the Codex's Exploration challenges for the Dark Wood region, so this fight is mandatory for those who are trying to complete the game in 100%.
It is important to defeat the boss on the Hell 1 level - you will then receive a stone that you will place in the Iben Fahd's Sanctum, which grants a passive Health bonus and can be upgraded.
