Your Armor Is Still Useful

Despite being doing high rank quests, the armor that you have since you defeated Zorah Magdaros should still be useful at this point in the game.

Upgrade Your Poison Weapons

Your poison weapons can be strengthened by using the parts of the Pukei-Pukei and the Rathian you defeat while hunting. These will allow you to make your weapons more effective against the stronger monsters in the game.

Collecting Nergigante Tracks

You May Need Several Visits to the Elder's Recess

Where to Find Nergigante Tracks

Preparing For Nergigante

Upgrade Your Armor To Withstand Attacks

Without the proper armor, Nergigante will be able to make you faint in 3 to 4 shots. This is why it is best to upgrade your armors in order to withstand its attacks.

Create a Lightning Type Weapon

Nergigante is weak against lightning type attacks which is why it is best to create or upgrade lightning weapons for the fight. Weapons that use Tobi-Kadachi parts can be very useful when facing Nergigante.
