Preparing For Fulgur Anjanath

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

Dodge Away To Evade Spin Attack's Range
The Fulgur Anjanath's spin attack has a wide range due to its tail. When it telegraphs this attack by raising its tail, dodge backwards to avoid getting hit by its tail. Alternatively, you can opt to block the attack if you are able.
Move To The Side To Dodge Side Slam
The Anjanath will often do this move. The attack has a wide range as the tail has a chance to hit you when it rushes toward you. Make sure to dodge away a great distance to avoid getting hit by this attack's large hitbox.
Electrified Charge Is Easily Telegraphed
The Fulgur Anjanath will telegraph this attack by rearing its head back and opening its mouth wide. You can easily dodge this attack since the telegraph is hard to miss. However, it may do this attack successively so keep an eye on the monster after dodging.
Thunder Breath Is A Small Projectile Attack
Despite being a ranged attack, the Thunder Breath is only a small projectile that can be dodged easily. However, make sure to avoid its point of impact as it can become electrified and deal damage to you!
