How to defeat Cyhrach, the First Born in Diablo 4
This boss can throw clusters of projectiles and a fast AOE attack. Therefore, relentless aggression can lead to a swift defeat. Rather, you need to fight at the right time to not take any unnecessary damage. Melee builds will have a relatively hard time against this boss if they don’t have any protection against it.
You need to dodge his projectiles by moving around and keeping an eye for the AOE windup animations. Following are the details about all of the moves:
Cyhrach simultaneously shoots 3 projectiles in your direction. These projectiles have no tracking capability and a slow velocity. Therefore, can be avoided easily by moving around.
However, if are close to Cyhrach while he casts this move, you can potentially be hit by all of them which can devastating. This ability is telegraphed so make sure to be an optimal distance for dodging.
The boss summons 5 sprits orbs and releases them in a radial direction. These orbs can track the player after being released and will continue for a few seconds. However, their turning speed is quite slow so you can easily maneuver them.
Just make sure to stay on the move to avoid getting hit. If you are using a melee build, stay clear of the orbs as they are summoned.
This is an AOE attack that covers a fairly large area. This move is well-telegraphed but still hard to dodge as the windup is fast. Using movement skills like Evade is the best way to avoid this attack.
If you are hit by this attack, any move that you are performing will be canceled and you will be knocked back by some distance.
