Lair of the Despoiler is a story dungeon that is tied to a particular side quest called “The Old Ways” in Diablo 4.
What that means is that while the dungeon is optional just like the other non-story dungeons, you are going to need to complete it to level up fast in D4.
Lair of the Despoiler is home to several monster types like demons and skeletons. However, you will not unlock any legendary aspect here; only a quest-related item.
