Namielle - Tips & Tricks
Namielle is one of the newest Elder Dragons to arrive in the New World of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. It has large glowing wings and whiskers, making it reminiscent of deep-sea jellyfish.
Has Both Water & Lightning Attacks
The Namielle is a unique Elder Dragon, having both water-based & thunder-based attacks. It can spew out water but can also do lightning damage on its targets.
Preparing For Namielle
Bring Water & Lightning Resistant Equipment
Since the Namielle has 2 elemental properties, you need to raise your resistance to both of them. Bring Water & Thunder Resistant gear or keep Nulberries in your Item Pouch in case you're afflicted with Water or Thunder blights.
Namielle Is Vulnerable to Fire
The Namielle is weak to fire-based weapons so make sure to have a fully upgraded, powerful fire weapon to deal enough damage and defeat this monster. Try equipping the Fire Attack skill to further amp up your fire damage!
Body Dries When Spitting Water
The Namielle soaks up water from its surroundings and spews it out as an attack. When it does, it dries its body up, making it vulnerable to your hits.
Namielle - Weakness & Effective Damage Type
This monster is weak in 3 spots - the head, chest, and forelegs. These 3 parts are breakable and additional parts such as the wings and tail can also be broken.

Fighting the Namielle can be tough as you'll have to face 2 very different elemental properties. Make sure to equip both Water & Thunder Resistance skills to survive through the fight.
Attack Its Side When Doing Water Breaths
Namielle's water breath attacks are always front-facing. If you move to the side of the monster, you'll be able to freely hit its body without getting damaged by its water breaths.
Large Electric Discharge Is Hard To Avoid
The Namielle's big electric discharge attack is hard to dodge, especially when it jumps from the screen. It's best to just equip yourself with Thunder resistant gear or mantle to avoid getting fatally caught in this move.
