Diablo 4 Season of Blood brings many changes to the Seasonal Realms, including the boss fight Lord Zir. Like other bosses in previous and future seasons, you need to collect specific items scattered across Sanctuary to summon this powerful boss.

If you’re trying to find information about Zir’s lair or how to defeat the vampire, here’s what you need to know.

Where to find Lord Zir in Diablo 4

To summon Lord Zir in Diablo 4you need to travel to the Dark Path in Broken Peak. This is a cave area that last leading to the Seat of the Ancientsthat’s where you’ll actually summon Lord Zir.

This is a very short dungeon and has very little enemy resistance. As long as You are at level 91, the dungeon before the fight with Lord Zir will be easy. Apotheosis is the final section of the Ancient’s Seat and is where you will find the Bloody Altar to summon this final boss.

You can Summon Lord Zir in Diablo 4 via Place nine vials of Blood Essence on the Bloody Altar found in The Apotheosis. You can get Blood Flair by killing world bosses at World Level 4 or by participating in Legion Gathering events.

With the Blood Essence in hand, you will be able to summon Lord Zir. You can still enter the Ancient’s Seat and complete other parts of the dungeon, but you won’t be able to take on the Vampire Lord without this important item.

Lord Zir has a total of four battle phases Diablo 4. The basic attacks you need to worry about are two frontal attacks and a scythe sweep. Stay mobile and stay out of his front to avoid these attacks and focus on other elements of the fight.

  • Phase one – Defeat the elite Blood Hunters when Zir spawns them.
  • Phase two – Avoid the Blood Orbs that Zir places around the arena. They can transform into Blood Waves or enemy minions. Similar to Bloodseeker, kill the minions when they appear.
  • Phase three – Zir begins to teleport to opposite sides of the arena. Watch where Zir will teleport and avoid this area.
  • Stage 4 – Zir’s final mechanic is Blood Rain which can leave you vulnerable. Stay away from this AoE spell to avoid status effects.

Lord Zir may have been a challenge, but in the end I was able to defeat it alone. Before jumping in, I also advise you Take the Anti-Darkness Elixirbecause this is the main form of damage the boss deals.
