Apex Rathian - Hunting Guide & Tips

1Increase Poison Resistance or Antidotes
└ We also recommend equipping a Gear or Decoration with Fire Resistance Effect
2Always be on the lookout for a Somersault or Triple Somersault
└ You may try to attack her after landing
3Distance yourself when Apex Rathian uses Fire Breath
└You may try to attack from the side when breathing fire
4Aim to weaken the attack by cutting the tail
5Attack her when in fatigue

Increase Poison Resistance & Fire Resistance Skills

Poison Resistance Lv3Nullifies effect of minor poison and reduces effect of major poison
Fire Resistance Lv3Fire resistance +20, Defense +10
AntidoteA cure for poison/venom

It is recommended to equip Gears or Decorations with Poison Resistance Lv 3 or bring Antidotes since Apex Rathian attacks frequently with poisonous effect.

We also suggest equipping Gears with Fire Resistance Skills to reduce the Fire Damage from Apex Rathian's Fire Breath.

Always Be Aware Of Somersaults

Apex Rathian launches a devastating Sommersault Tail Whip three times. The first attack has a gap movement that will stop for a moment, but it attacks immediately for the second and third time. So it is important to be prepared to avoid it while assuming that the second or third attacks will come.

Attack After Landing A Somersault

Sommersault Pattern
Not Enraged・ Be sure to attack once landed
Enraged・Attack after landing the hits for the third time
・There also be another attack in the middle so be careful and observe her attacks

Somersault Tail Whips cause a large gap from the time they occur to the time they land. There are the above patterns in the behavior after Somersault and if you remember the pattern of landing, you will have a chance to attack.

Distance Yourself When Breathing

Apex Rathian's breath will not hit you if you are on her side, so it is recommended that you attack her head while breathing fire. But when enraged, she will use her Fire Breath three times, so the range becomes larger.

Aim To Weaken The Attack By Cutting The Tail

Cutting the tail of Apex Rathian removes the poison slime and further weakens Somersault when enraged. Cutting the tail is worth a shot as this will neutralize her attacks.

Attack Her When In Fatigue State

▲ Fatigue state of a Normal Rathian

Even Apex Rathian also experience fatigue like taking a stiff motion like shortness of breath and slows down. If you noticed that she drools from her mouth, it's a sign of fatigue, so don't be afraid to attack.
