Diablo 4's first world boss, Ashava, is one of the main challenges available during the two Diablo 4 betas this month. Unlike dungeons and quests, world bosses wait for no slayer. Ashava has multiple spawn times during each of the beta weekends so you have plenty of chances to show up to at least one of them. Here's exactly when you'll want to be online to fight the giant plague creature.
Note: Due to a daylight savings mixup, Ashava was an hour late to her first spawn time on March 18. Blizzard posted a new list of spawn times on Twitter. Our timetable below has been updated to reflect the new times for the open beta.

Blizzard has updated the spawn times for Ashava during the open beta to match the four times that she spawned during the preorder beta. There are now four times to catch Ashava during the open beta.
Where to find Ashava in Diablo 4
Ashava spawns in The Crucible, which is a small level 25+ section of the Fractured Peaks on its eastern edge. You'll get an on-screen popup 30 minutes before Ashava spawns so you have time to head to the right area.
Like an MMO, world bosses allow for a lot of players in the same area to convene and fight together. You'll have 15 minutes on the clock to take Ashava down and complete the world event. Ashava is a "whirlwind of pestilence" and is capable of coating the ground in poison. Be ready to deal with lots of AOE attacks. Her big forearm blades are rather strong too, which she uses to swipe a full circle around herself. There is a way to weaken Ashava, Blizzard has hinted.
