The second big boss in Diablo 3 Act 3 is called Cydaea. She is a giant spider and the wife of Azmoden apparently. She can be a tricky fight but with this boss guide you can bring her down easily! So let’s go.
This fight is best done in a group. This is for normal.
First off for the Diablo 3 Cydaea boss guide is her moves. Her basic attacks are bites and punches. These don’t hurt that bad so don’t worry about them unless you are low.
The most annoying part of the fight is the fact she is constantly summoning little spiders. They die quick but if you don’t deal with them quickly you will be overwhelmed. AoE them to bring them down quickly. I couldn’t tell if they dropped red orbs or not.
She has two ranged moves. One of which is a slow web that sits on the floor. Get out of the web to avoid the slow. Her second move is a spit. These can poison you if they hit but you can see them coming and dodge it if you are quick enough. Heal through it if you end up getting poisoned.
Like every other boss is she is see through that means she is immune to CC.
Now for the fight part of the Diablo 3 Cydaea boss guide. As soon as the fight starts the baby spiders will start coming out. If you have extra players make sure someone with range is picking them off now and then in order to not overwhelm you.
She moves around a lot and she is quick. Expect her to dash right past you launch a slow then do a poison spit. A good idea is to run out of the slow on an angle in order to avoid her spit. Any dash or roll type move can get you out of the web quickly. If she doesn’t spit at you she might just rush at you and start the melee attacks.
As she gets lower more and more tiny spiders will pop out. I cannot stress this enough do not let them overwhelm you! Before she dies she will go up into the ceiling and have even more spiders come out at you. At this point be sure to clear as many as you can before she drops. In the two fights I did with her she did that at about 40% and 10%.
If you can contain the spiders and avoid her poison this fight is fairly simple. Use potions when you have to and CC her when she isn’t immune. Beat her down and grab your loot.
