Diablo 4 Grigoire Strategy Guide

There are a few hoops you have to go through before you can challenge Duriel in Diablo 4 Season 2. One of them is having to fight Grigoire, The Galvanic Saint again and again. While the boss fight is easy enough, you'll need to properly prepare for him if you want to spend less time fighting him.

If you're hoping to farm Uber Uniques from Duriel, then you're bound to face Grigoire again and again as well.

How To Fight Grigoire

Like all the new bosses in Diablo 4 Season 2, you'll need to farm for certain materials before you can fight Grigoire. In the case of Grigoire, you'll need to get 2 Living Steel for everytime that you want to fight him. The good news is that he is the easiest to summon out of all the Diablo 4 Uber bosses right now.

Where To Find Living Steel?

To get Living Steel, you should find Tortured Offering Chests. Whenever there's a Helltide on the map, head to it as soon as possible and farm as many Aberrant Cinders as you can. The more Cinders you get, the more chests that you can open so you'll have more chances at getting Living Steel.

Ideally, you should farm for Living Steel with the help of others so that it's easier to get through the Helltide. The same goes for when you're fighting Grigoire as well. It's best to go in a group so that you don't need to farm a ton of Living Steel as the instance will be shared by everyone.

Where To Find Grigoire?

Once you have enough Living Steel, look for Grigoire in the Hall of the Penitent which is a level 75 dungeon. You can find the dungeon entrance in Dry Steppes, just south of Ked Bardu. Head to the altar and offer the Living Steel to begin the fight with Grigoire.

Grigoire Strategy Guide

Grigoire's attack mostly deals Lightning damage. As that is the case, make sure to get gear that gets you to the max Lightning Resistance cap of 70%. If not, you should begin stocking up on Potent Elixir of Lightning Resistance to further minimize the damage that Grigoire deals. Aside from that, consider these things as well.

  1. Once the fight begins, make sure to move immediately as there will be lightning squares that will spawn. These can deal consistent damage over time. The best place to be is behind Grigoire so that you can avoid most of his attacks.
  2. There will be a few lightning spires in the map and once they're activated, there will be a line of lightning between them. Avoid standing at the center of any two spires to avoid getting heavily damaged.
  3. Once his health drops to 40%, Grigoire will kneel down and spawn normal enemies. They're pretty easy to kill but make sure to get rid of them immediately as they can be very limiting while fighting Grigoire for the remainder of his life.

Aside from the materials you'll need for the Duriel fight, Grigoire also has a few great Unique drops that make the fight well-worth it.
