The world of Sanctuary is a vast and dangerous place, filled with enemies that will smack you down if you step out of line. Some of the open-world enemies are much more dangerous than the standard followers of Lilith. Yes, we are talking about those special, unique Diablo 4 elite mobs!

This guide outlines the spawn locations of every single unique special elite enemy in Diablo 4's five main regions, so let's get going!

Update on 19 June 2023: We've updated this article with the latest info on special elite spawn locations in Diablo 4.

First and foremost, remember that there is only one unique, special boss that randomly spawns in dungeons to slay unsuspecting Nephalem, The Butcher! You can even get the unique item, The Butcher's Cleaver, if you can slay this monstrosity, denying it of "fresh meat."

There are, however, also special elite enemies that spawn in the world, dangerous foes that can drop rare special items. At the time of writing, 20 of these special elite enemies have been found. The map below, from the fantastic resource MapGenie, showcases all their spawn locations.

It is important to note that these special elites in Diablo 4 are not always available. The spawn times appear to be random, and if a player has just killed one of these powerful enemies, they might not respawn for hours.

From our experience, we suggest checking on these locations for the unique elites as you complete Grim Favors or as you make your way through the campaign. Hunting them specifically, however, might not be the best way to farm more loot.

In case you've managed to miss it, check out Diablo 4's live-action launch trailer below, and dream about slaying all 30 special unique elites!

That's all the spawn locations for those special, unique elites in Diablo 4. There's always a chance that there are more out there yet to be found. We will endeavor to update this article if any more rare elite spawns are found. Good luck, Nephalem!
