How to defeat Airidah in Diablo 4 

Airidah, Keeper of the Dead has a bunch of attacks that can be a problem for you. In order to defeat her, you need to know them and then formulate a strategy to deal with them.


Airidah’s primary attack includes the lightning bolts she unleashes on the ground. The area of impact will be marked as blue circles on your screen and will always appear next to your location. Be mobile in the arena so you don’t get in the area of effect. Sometimes, you might not be able to dodge these bolts, so jewelry that provides lightning resistance and some elixirs will be helpful here. 

Airidah will also use teleportation and call some Wraiths for help. At this time, you must focus all your attacks on the summoned wraiths, as Airidah becomes immune as long as her pawns are around. Take care of the wraiths and focus all your attacks on the boss when they are down.

The number of the summoned wraiths will vary according to the health of the boss, but the strategy remains the same, defeat them before focusing your attacks on Airidah and earn the rewards.
