LocationThe Great Span

Izual is the third boss in Act IV. He has a chance to drop the plans for Staff of Herding.

He gained notoriety for being impossibly difficult when Diablo III was released as he was able to kill players in a few hits and his periodic Freezing made survival very difficult. His normal attack hit for a lot of damage while his Charge ability dealt huge damage. His Chain Frozen ability used to summon 2-3 normal Frozen Orbs on top of all party members.
