Regardless of the lack of attacks in Nilcar’s arsenal, he is still one of the most difficult bosses to defeat in Diablo 4. During this fight, he will use two attacks: Blood Pallets and Blood Projectiles.  

He will flush blood from the ground to target you and bombard you with projectiles. Following these attacks, the boss will summon multiple Sanguine Knights.

These are formidable enemies themselves with devastating attacks. The best strategy here is to kill each Sanguine Knight as it is summoned before focusing on Nilcar.
