A Diablo 4 player discovered a combo that allowed the Seneschal Companion to beat Echo of Duriel in a 1v1 fight. One of the main additions to Diablo 4 Season 3 is the Seneschal Companion, which becomes a valuable ally in the players’ journey. With this feature, Diablo 4 has given the experience a new twist thanks to an exciting pet robot feature.
Players unlock the Seneschal Companion during the seasonal quests and customize it with Governing and Tuning Stones. The Governing Stones determine the Seneschal’s attacks, and the Tuning Stones augment the companion. What makes the robot impressive, however, is that the Seneschal scales 1:1 with Diablo 4 players’ stats. Showing what this pet can do with the right build, a Diablo 4 player managed an impressive feat against one of the game’s most powerful foes.
Diablo 4 Player Shares List of Useful Senechal Companion Combos
A Diablo 4 player creates a list with useful Senechal Companion combos, and helps other players explore the potential of the new robot.
Diablo 4 streamer wudijo published a video on YouTube showing a player’s Seneschal defeating Echo of Duriel in a 1v1 fight. Wudijo explains that the effectiveness of the strategy lies in the synergy between the Governing Stone Firefly, and the Tuning Stones Multishot Support, Piercing Support, and Seeking Support. Firefly deploys a small firefly that explodes three times and deals damage. Multishot allows supported Projectile skills to launch additional projectiles, and Piercing makes supported Projectile pierce multiple targets. Finally, Seeking makes supported Projectile Skills auto-seek enemies for a limited time. With this combo, the robot produces six-figure damage and takes large chunks out of Duriel’s life, making it a formidable opponent for one of Diablo 4‘s endgame bosses.
Diablo 4’s Pet Robot Beats Uber Duriel Impressively
Some Diablo 4 players have criticized the Seneschal pet, labeling it “useless” because of its lack of impact in fights. Other players, on the other hand, have shown that the robot can be a good asset with the right adjustments. In addition to beating Echo of Duriel, another Diablo 4 player posted a video where Seneschal fights Uber Lilith and wins. While the robot divides players’ opinions, it is now stronger after Diablo 4 update 1.3.1, which buffed several Governing and Tuning Stones. The strategy analyzed by wudijo was directly affected by the patch, as the post-buff Governing Stone Firefly now deals 10% more damage.
Players are always finding unusual ways to beat Diablo 4‘s enemies, and this time is no different. The discovery of the powerful combo that allows the Seneschal Companion to 1v1 bosses opens up the possibilities for players to test other combinations. Over time, there’s a chance that new playstyles will emerge around the companion, making Diablo 4‘s gameplay even more engaging.
