Diablo 4 The Blood Bishop Location, How To Defeat, Loot Drops

Diablo 4's dark and disturbingly beautiful world is full of different activities for you to pursue. Whether it's figuring out the whereabouts of Lilith, the mother of Sanctuary in the main quest, or lending a hand to one of the town folks in the game's many side quests, there's plenty to see and do in this latest installment in the Diablo franchise. 

Often, you will also come across labyrinth dungeons that are full of vicious bosses and tantalizing loot. These are also one of the primary ways to farm Aspects. One such boss is the Blood Bishop. If you're struggling to beat this demon, you're in the right place. Here's how to beat Blood Bishop in Diablo 4. 

Update on 12 July 2023: We've updated this guide on finding and killing the Blood Bishop boss in Diablo 4.

Where to Find Blood Bishop in Diablo 4

You can find the Blood Bishop in the Chamber of Martyrs in the Hallowed Ossuary dungeon. It can be found east of Kyovashad, in the Fractured Peaks zone of the game. The recommended level to complete this dungeon is 14. 

Interestingly, the Blood Bishop also appears in the Gathering Legions world zone event next to the Kor Dragan Stronghold.

How to Beat Blood Bishop in Diablo 4

The Blood Bishop is a gigantic enemy with two tentacles that uses blood magic to deal damage. It uses its tentacles to deal this slamming-style attack that does a ton of damage. Occasionally it will also throw its tentacles towards you to grab you and deal bleeding damage. 

The Blood Bishop is primarily a caster, and it will spew high DPS spells toward you, so whether you are using a long-ranged class like Sorcerer or a short-ranged class like Barbarian, you're in trouble. The best way to avoid this is to always be on the move. If you're playing solo, you can hide behind the pillars in the room to avoid it. 

You will also notice multiple blood sacs forming in the boss arena that can burst and deal AOE damage to you and your party members. It's best to destroy them quickly or steer clear away from them.

Keep these in mind, and the Blood Bishop should be out in no time. 

What Loot Does Blood Bishop Drop in Diablo 4?

And that's it! That concludes our guide on how to beat the Blood Bishop in Diablo 4.
