ya I spent 45 minutes unloading my light bowgun into its skull before he finally brought me down. Now that I know his hp tells I just need to find his elemental weakness and get some better attack up. His instant kill is a real pain though.
He's weak to Dragon but honestly its not worth it to solo him, with a good group he only take about 20ish minutes depending on Gear. And the beam isn't an instant kill it just an instant kill from your armor standpoint, I've currently got a gunner set that can take a few hits while still doing work.
I though he was weak to dragon but was told he wasn't. Its his lunging bite attack that is a insta kill, the beam does half health. Im not too worried about it. I hunted the Dire Miralis like 20 times solo in 3U so I can make its armor. A little snake isn't going to hold me back for very long. I just haven't gotten around to it. Im currently sporting the azure rathalos armor and the stygian zinogre lbg and I can't up it any further with out G rank parts. My internet sucks and I don't really have anyone to play with anyways.
kiranico.com/en/mh4u/monster/d… Here is a site that can show you weaknesses and weak points on Monsters, its pretty helpful. and the Bite is so limited in range I often forget about it. AS a HBG I'm usually on the pillar opposite to where he can even reach with that. And do you have any other skills gemmed in aside from the base armor skills? And I can understand going solo if your internet is bad.
I use that site to find that stuff out. its the only real way to be effective as a gunner. Keep in mind I have only ever fought Dala once so I had no idea what it was going to do. Right now I only have attack up S. been grinding for better talismans so I can up it. I have like 12 different armor sets spanning different skills and 3 different armors.
I wish there was some type of forum or something so people can help eachother out :/. Hell if anyone wants to play or anything make a comment chain off of mine or (better yet) a more famous artist can start one so there is more notice for there is rarely a good time to find peeps who can "git on meh leval"
Honestly going on Twitch.Tv and looking in Monster Hunter Streams there are a lot of people who are willing to help/Need help themselves so if you really want some where to go that'd be the best place for you.
Thanks. I love watching the people on Twitch but sometimes I just cringe when I see someone use gear that just demolishes them because they didn't realize a water attack is über powerful against fire based armor.
