Lavasioth - Tips and Tricks
Use Fire Weapon Or Torch Pod To Melt Shell
When the Lavasioth is out of the lava, his shell will harden over time, making it harder for you to hit it with critical attacks. Counter this by bringing him back to the lava area, use Fire-based weapons, or fling Torch Pods to melt his shell.
Use Screamer Pod To Get Him Out Of Ground
The Lavasioth will burrow into the ground once in a while. To get the monster out, use a Screamer Pod. It'll fling the Lavasioth from the ground and leave it vulnerable for a few seconds.
Aim For Head To Stagger Lavasioth
Enough damage to the Lavasioth's head will stagger it. This gives you a bit of time to do more damage to it while it's immobile.Lavasioth Monster Info Here!
