Diablo 4 developers have applauded a player’s efforts after they managed to solo an entire world boss by themselves in the recent server slam event.

Blizzard’s popular action RPG series Diablo is set to receive its next title very shortly. In the leadup to that time, Blizzard has been hard at work polishing every aspect of Diablo 4, as well as squishing any potential bugs. Alongside the work in-game, many developers at Blizzard have taken to social media to answer player questions, or to tease potential features that are launching with the game.

After the first successful beta test earlier this year, Blizzard launched a second one called a Server Slam, in order to test the capabilities of the servers for the game. Fortunately for players, this meant they had a second chance to hop into the game for a brief while before the full launch on June 6, 2023.

One rather talented player, in particular, used this opportunity to claim their solo kill on a world boss, as the previous attempts ended up in kill-steals by others.

Diablo YouTuber wudijo would return to the lands of Diablo 4 during the server slam beta. This time the YouTuber had their eyes set on slaying Ashava, one of the world bosses available throughout the game.

Ashava the Pestilent would rarely spawn around every three hours in a level 25 area. However, the maximum level players could achieve during this beta was only level 20, so wudijo had their work cut out for them. Fortunately, they’re a skilled Diablo player and were able to take down the world boss on their Demon Hunter.

Wudijo also included a clip taken directly from the Blizzard developers, who spoke about the Ashava fight and specifically mentioned their expectations for wudijo to solo it.

One dev that acknowledged the triumph was Global Community Development Director Adam Fletcher, who ended up congratulating the player’s achievement on Twitter.

The achievement was so monumental that even the president of Blizzard Mike Ybarra applauded Wudijo’s efforts as well, cheekily implying their wishes to buff Ashava.

Whilst the Server Slam beta for Diablo 4 is over, players will be able to tackle Ashava and other world bosses when the game fully releases in a few weeks.
