Farming Bosses for Legendary Loot - Do I have to close app every time?

I was farming Graveward last night on PS4 (I’ve completed the main story already). After defeating GW and collecting what I wanted, I quit the game via the in-game menu. When I went back in to the GW arena, he wasn’t there. Nothing ever spawned there. I had to close the app and then restart the game to get GW to show.

Honestly, I may have only fast travelled back to Sanctuary and went back to the GW arena, which didn’t respawn the boss, but I believe I tried quit game as well. The only thing that worked for sure was closing the app, but that seems to be excessive.

Which method is the right one? When I look at YouTube vids, this is not really made clear, to me at least.

Excuse the post length, I figured the more info I provided the less follow up questions. Thanks in advance guys and gals!

Just quit out of the game and reload. You don’t need to close the app.

Just Savequit into the main menu, then load back in. That should do the trick.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I will give that a try and report back. I’m assuming that I don’t have to go back to Sanctuary first? I can just save quit from whichever area I want to get back to?

Yeah just kill graveward, exit to main menu, restart the game in his map. Rinse and repeat

Thanks I’ll definitely try that. As I think about it I’m almost sure I went to sanctuary first and just went back to that board. I had it as high as Mayhem level 4 when I started farming but I kept getting killed by the time I got his bar to about 1/4 or less left. I was wondering why it was so damn hard LOL! Then again GW dropped two legendaries halfway through one of the battles while on Mayhem 4

Eureka! That worked without a hitch. Way to explain in plain and simply. Much appreciated!
