Jyuratodus - Tips and Tricks
Positioning - Avoid its Front
Jyuratodus's damaging attacks mainly comes from its front, and has surprisingly little moves against hunters that's not directly facing it. Avoid its front and you'll be fine.
Prepare for the Environment
When fighting Jyuratodus, water will slow you down(even your dodge) without proper gear, while Jyuratodus will utilize the mud to ambush you. Items with Aquatic Expert Skills will mitigate this.
Hit the Head and Tail
Jyuratodus's head and tail are its weak spots. Stun is also effective versus Jyuratodus, so bashing its head with a stunning weapon can down it in no time.
Don't touch the Mud Pile
Jyuratodus will spit out mounds of mud which will stay for a while. If you walk in/get hit with it, the mud will give you Water Blight, causing you to be locked in place and take increased Water damage, so stay away from them.
Break off Its Mud Layer for Easier Fight
Jyuratodus' mud layer can be broken off to expose its body. Attacking the exposed parts will deal more damage. Mud Layer can be broken faster by using Puddle Pods, obtained by gathering Watermoss in the field.Check out Jyuratodus Monster Info Here!
