Apex Arzuros - Hunting Guide & Tips
|①||You can safely attack from behind|
|②||Avoid his jump attacks|
|③||Be careful of a wider attack range than normal individuals|
|④||Chance when eating honey|
You Can Safely Attack From Behind
Most of Apex Arzuros's attacks are always frontal. Therefore, you can attack while reducing the number of hits by attacking from behind. However, while it is safe, the Rear is hard, so aim firmly behind where you can attack the weak front legs as well.
Avoid His Jump Attacks
It may make a hip attack after jumping that deals with the highest attack power among the attacks of Apex Arzuros. Evade away from the jumping attack to avoid getting damage and have a chance to attack him.
Be Careful Of A Wider Attack Range Than Normal Individuals
The attack pattern of Apex Arzuros is almost the same as that of a normal individual Arzuros. But the attack range is wider, such as flying rocks when throwing. If you avoid it while thinking it was the same Arzuros, you will often be hit by his attacks, so fight while keeping a distance diligently, or sneak firmly behind.
Chance when eating honey
If you fight Apex Arzuros while bringing honey, it will most likely steal it from you. But he will also eat the honey on the spot. You can use this opportunity to attack him.Check Out Other Apex Monsters Here
