Diablo Immortal Ming Shan: Location & Strategy

In this article I mentioned the location of Ming Shan and boss strategy for players to defeat him easily.

Ming Shan, also known as The Devoted, is an elite enemy in Diablo Immortal. Players can find Ming Shan at Mount Zavain, and after defeating him, you unlock an achievement (Defeated type of Achievement) called “The Devoted” for Mount Zavain.

Key Takeaways

Finding Ming Shan:

  • Locate Ming Shan by going to the Zakarum Cemetery Waypoint.
  • Head to the Western side of Sanctified Earth Monastery to find the boss.

Defeating Ming Shan:

  • Ming Shan’s versatile attacks can stun your movement.
  • Watch out for Flare, Flying Kick, Punch Combo, and Fireball attack patterns.
  • Dodge low-damage attacks; seize the right moment to counter.
  • Defeating Ming Shan yields “Enchanted Dust” for gear and weapon upgrades

Completing this achievement grants you various rewards and item drops. Most Diablo players get confused about Ming Shan’s location and lack strategies to defeat him. But don’t worry; I will discuss Ming Shan’s location clearly and tips for you to defeat the elite monster easily.

Location Of Ming Shan

Here the path I would recommend you to locate Ming Shan (The Devoted):

  1. Use the Zakarum Cemetery Waypoint to reach the zone.
  2. Head east from the waypoint to reach the Sanctified Earth Monastery.
  3. You’ll find yourself in a mid-sized circular area centered around an idol.
  4. Ming Shan is located in the Western Part of the Sanctified Earth Monastery.

However, I think some players experience difficulty in spawning Ming Shan. This may be due to higher game difficulty settings, which lower the chances of Ming Shan spawning. If you’re having trouble, try changing the difficulty to Hell 1, as players with Hell 2 and Hell 3 difficulty settings often face spawning issues. Ming Shan should hopefully spawn at the Devoted Location within 30 minutes.

Remember that unique Elites like Ming Shan can be rare, and if you can’t find him initially, I recommend returning to the same area later.

Boss Fight Strategy

To successfully defeat Ming Shan The Devoted, follow the steps I have mentioned below:

General Battle Tips:

  • Ming Shan resembles the Monk class and employs a similar fighting style.
  • His attacks consist of punches and dashes, with occasional ranged attacks.
  • The purple dome around him doesn’t damage or buff him, so you can safely engage him within it.

Special Attacks:

  1. Flare:
    • Watch for Ming Shan charging up before he fires a flare in 360 degrees.
    • Recognize the charging pattern and move away to avoid taking significant damage.
  2. Flying Kick:
    • Be cautious of Ming Shan’s Flying Kick attack, which has a long range.
    • It has a charge time, making it somewhat predictable, but it’s challenging to dodge, so be prepared to move quickly.
  3. Punch Combo:
    • Ming Shan uses a Punch Combo that involves three punches followed by a fireball.
    • This attack can deal substantial damage, so try to avoid getting hit by dodging or using defensive abilities.
  4. Fireball:
    • Ming Shan can launch Fireball attacks.
    • These are purple fireballs with a small splash radius and medium range.
    • Keep your distance and sidestep to avoid them.

General Strategy:
