What you need to know
The Server Slam extravaganza is at its peak, with Diablo 4 gamers having an absolute blast battling against the formidable world boss Ashava, even if they are getting thoroughly beaten in the process. This monstrous adversary should not be taken lightly, especially considering that the level cap has been reduced to 20, a staggering five levels lower than the recommended level for this confrontation. Countless players have taken to Twitter and Reddit, pleading for mercy and exchanging survival tactics, including opting for a lower difficulty setting.
However, there emerged a single player who fearlessly embraced the challenge and achieved the unimaginable: he triumphantly confronted Ashava all by himself in hardcore mode, precisely on World Tier 2 – the ultimate level of difficulty amidst the intense server frenzy. Wudijo, a dare thrown at him by the developers during the Developer Endgame Livestream, showcased his exceptional prowess in this grandiose clash. Witness the astonishing video below as he vanquishes Ashava with a mere sixty seconds remaining.
Renowned for his prowess in action-RPGs such as Diablo and Path of Exile, the German streamer Wudijo has carved a niche for himself with his captivating playthroughs and expertly crafted guides. A seasoned player, Wudijo’s audacious solo takedown of Ashava is not an unfamiliar feat, having accomplished it previously during the Open Beta weekend albeit with a significant advantage of being five levels higher as a rogue.
The world boss battles during this weekend proved to be a formidable challenge, causing an uproar amongst the player community. Surprisingly, even Rod Fergusson, the renowned overseer of the beloved Diablo series, couldn’t help but express his frustrations while attempting to defeat the mighty Ashava.
I’ve had no luck against Ashava, losing twice already. I’m considering attempting World Tier 1 in hopes of achieving a more favorable outcome. The first battle was incredibly close, with just a mere 10% remaining. Alright, only 25 minutes until Round 3 – time to seize the moment! May 13, 2023.
Rod recently made an exhilarating announcement on Twitter, disclosing that it took him a remarkable number of attempts to achieve his goal, even after reducing the difficulty level to World Tier 1.
It is important to mention that during previous beta weekends, the drop rates for legendary items were increased to 300%, but they have been adjusted to more realistic levels for the Server Slam. This means that Wudijo has not only completed the challenge at a lower level, but also with less favorable gear. With multiple solo victories against Ashava, Wudijo reminds me of LetMeSoloHer from the Elden Ring community, who is known for defeating Malenia multiple times in co-op mode. Could Wudijo become the boss that Ashava dreads the most?
Input: Despite the fact that progress from the Server Slam won’t transfer to the official game release on June 6th, those victorious over Ashava during this weekend will be rewarded with the prestigious Cry of Ashava Mount Trophy, a valuable possession that can be proudly displayed on their mounts in the complete game.
