Diablo 4The Apex of Misery quest continues after Harrowed Lament, where Yorin escorts Arla and his daughter Maisie back to the hamlet of Braestaig. You set off on Airidiah’s trail to discover new information about Lilith’s plans and location.
Lilith may not have been able to get Donan to help her, but that didn’t stop her from carrying out her evil plans. In the end, Airidiah didn’t see past Lilith’s lies, which had huge consequences. So, boost your impact resistance and get ready for an electrifying boss battle.
Apex Of Misery Quest Walkthrough
The Apex of Misery quest takes place in Ancestor Heights and Solitude area from Scosglen region. Braestaig is the nearest settlement and Waypoint to this task.
Traveling north from Braestaigyou will encounter phantoms, giant wild forests and large groups of barbed swarms.
Although Stinging Swarms are small, they reduce your movement speed significantly, making it difficult to avoid Wild Forest’s attacks, so take them out immediately.
Before completing Harrowed Lament, access to the Solitude area was blocked by roots. But destroying the Rise Remains cleared the way to this area. Again, you’ll need to kill these creatures to reach Airidiah; but this time they are protected.
How to destroy the remains of the climb
To remove an obstacle guarding two Rise Remains, you must find the source of the spell and kill the mob channeling the spell to damage Risa’s remains.
Enemies will continue to appear until you kill the Rise Remains, so look for mobs that direct obstacles.
The Rise Remains cannot attack but Wraiths that accompany phantoms are a a major threatespecially if they are Elite variants.
After killing both Rise Remains, you can continue walking down the path to Solitude. However, there are still many enemies between you and Airidiah.
How to beat Airidiah Keeper of the Dead
First, talk to Airidiah at the top of Solitude and Ancestor’s Heights.
Airidiah Keeper of the Dead has three phases in combat. However, he only has a few attacks and very little variation between them. Instead, he uses the same spells, but more often.
You won’t have to worry about any melee attacks during this fight, since all of Airidiah’s attacks are spells.
More, circles will appear on the ground indicating a lightning strike before Airidiah attackswhich gives you more than enough time to dodge the attack.
Airidiah’s Lightning Strike is her main attack, so you’ll want to equip this strengthens your Lightning Resistance and drink the elixir of lightning resistancewhich makes the fight much easier.
When you deal damage to Airidiah, she will teleport away from you to another part of the arena, making her difficult to hit.
Health potions will drop from bosses every time you lower their health to the next stage of the boss fight. There are markers on the boss’s health bar that highlight each phase of the battle.
Fighting Airidiah, Phase 1: Shields and Tornadoes
If she reduces her health enough, she will have it summon two banshees to shield her with a barrier. You will need to kill each Banshee before you can continue fighting her.
Airidiah’s lightning strikes will become more frequentand she will begin to cast a spell tornadoes with large areas of influence which will push you into the corners of the arena and damage you.
As a result, landing hits on Airidia becomes much more difficult, especially when she teleports into the line of fire of her tornadoes and lightning strikes.
Phase 2 of the fight follows the same pattern as the previous phase, but the attack frequency increases this time.
Airidiah Fight Phase 3: More Banshees and Lightning Strikes
In the third phase, Airidiah will summon four Banshees to protect her. As before, you’ll need to kill all four banshees before you can continue damaging Airidiah.
But during this phase, Airidiah’s attacks come thick and fast. You’ll have a little space to avoid her lightning strikes and tornadoes.
You will want to avoid tornadoes at all costs, as they can push you into lightning strikes. Since you’ll have less room to dodge Airidiah’s attacks, it can be difficult to focus the Banshees one by one.
Vig’s Amulet of Protection, a legendary amulet you picked up during the descent in the Act 1 quest, creates a protective bubble every 90 seconds after being hit while not healthy, making you immune to all damage.
Using the amulet, you can focus damage on the banshee.
