How to defeat Den Mother in Diablo 4 

The Den Mother prefers close combat you need to be careful of her overwhelming attacks and evade them as much as possible. She will start her initial attack with a vicious Claw Slash. Simply dodge her attack and avoid getting hit by it in Diablo 4.  


Once you manage to bring Den Mother’s health to 70 percent she will use her second attack in the form of “Red Miasma Pools”. She will hit the ground constantly and in doing, 6 pools of red miasma will suddenly appear all around you. Avoid stepping in any one of these as you will get heavy damage from them.  

The Den Mother will also resort to using Stealth Tactics. She will disappear momentarily from the battlefield and then re-emerge to strike you back.

She will also summon small demon wolves to help her out. Finally, she will use a Charge Attack at you while striking you twice with her claw slashes in Diablo 4. To evade it by timing it right and proceed to attack her back in a manner of your choosing.
