Uses Lightning To Power Up

The Fulgur Anjanath is a lighting-element subspecies of the Anjanath. It's a new monster in Iceborne and delivers powerful attacks with lighting-based elements.

Preparing For Fulgur Anjanath

Has A Weakness To Ice In Normal State

The Fulgur Anjanath has a weakness to Ice Element. If you have an Ice weapon, it is recommended to use it for the fight. Use your Ice Weapon in conjunction with the Ice Attack skill to maximize your elemental damage output against the monster!

Will Take More Damage From Water Attacks

Another viable element against the Fulgur Anjanath is water. Take note that Water will only be effective when the Fulgur Anjanath is enraged. If you do not have an ice weapon, you can opt to use water weapons to also deal effective damage!

Increase Thunder Element Resistance

It is recommended to equip a loadout that will increase your resistance to the thunder element. With a higher resistance to thunder attacks, you will be able to lessen the damage taken from most of the Fulgur Anjanath's attacks!

Wound & Break Legs To Topple Monster
