How to defeat Scourge of The Land in Diablo 4 

The Scourge of the Land has four primary moves that he repeats constantly. However, the attacks are powerful, and you must watch out for them every time. He mainly performs the following attacks.

Double Slam

The Scourge of The Land has a mace that he uses to attack in battle. He slams the mace twice, on the ground, right in front of him. Upon the impact of mace with the ground, red pools are made which will damage you for as long as you stand in them. You must ensure not to get hit by the slams and not to stand in the pools. 


Wide Swing

Clear from the name of the attack, he swings the mace in a wide arc twice. Stay as far as possible when this happens in Diablo 4.

Demon Summon

He will create red pools by slamming his mace on the ground and then summons three demonic species at random from them.

They can be Flesh Eaters, Sandstalkers, or Succubi. They are not too difficult to take down. Just defeat them at the earliest possible time. 

Fire Breath

The Scourge of The Land spits fire in a stream in a straight line. Just stay aside as he releases this attack. 

The Scourge of The Land has some weaknesses like any other boss. While he performs Fire Breath, he stays immobile.

So you need to stay close to him and attack him up close and personal. Avoid his attacks and look for windows of opportunity to attack him.
