Stay Away From Phase-like Shards
The Imp Overlord will throw phase-like shards that land on the ground in your direction. These have an area-of-effect damage when you go near them so it's best to dodge or sprint away from them.

When the Imp Overlord phases near you, it can do a dangerous melee hand thrash attack. Dash away from this move to avoid taking too much continuous damage.
Find Red Circle To Know Where Imp Overlord Will Appear
The Imp Overlord occasionally teleports towards or away from you. Look at the ground for a red circle, this is where it'll move to next. Lay in wait and unleash your strongest attacks the moment it appears from its vortex.
