Acidic Glavenus - Tips & Tricks
Acidic Glavenus Overview
The Acidic Glavenus is a subspecies of the Fire-based monster, Glavenus. It has several features that it shares with the original Glavenus such as a large, sharp tail which it uses as a weapon!
Sharp Tail Is Coated With Acid
The Acidic Glavenus is different from the normal Glavenus because it has an acidic tail that implements the Defense Down status debuff. When the tail is crystallized, every hit on you by the tail can implement the debuff.
Preparing For Acidic Glavenus
Equip Iron Skin Or Use Adamant Seed
To combat the Defense Down debuff the Acidic Glavenus can inflict, bring equipment with Iron Skin skills or have a stash of Adamant Seeds to instantly remove the status effect.
Monster Is Weak To Fire Element
The Acidic Glavenus is weak against fire-based weapons. Bring your most powerful fire elemental weapons in this fight to take the monster down fast.
Attack When Tail Is Covered In Acid
The Acidic Glavenus moves much slower when its tail is covered in acid. You can easily avoid its attacks when its tail is still blunt, leaving it open for powerful combos.
Acidic Glavenus - Weakness & Effective Damage Type
The Acidic Glavenus is weak in 2 parts - its head and its tail. The tail needs to be broken before it can be cut off and its back & forelimbs can be broken as well.

Acidic Glavenus - Moves & Counters
|Bite||Does consecutive bites while moving forward. Move away from its face to prevent getting bitten|
|Tail Pierce||Attacks forward with its tail. Roll to the side, away from the landing spot of the tail|
|Jump Tail Attack||Jumps and swings tail forward towards the ground. Move to the side to avoid taking hits|
|Spin Tail Attack||Bites tail and spins around. Very heavy damage, keep distance or do your invulnerable dodge to avoid taking damage|
Sharpened Tail Hits Harder & Faster
When the Acidic Glavenus removes its acid coating, its tail becomes extremely sharp & dangerous. The monster will attack harder and there will be less gaps between moves, so stay cautious during this period.
Dodge Acid Tail To Avoid Defense Down Debuff
The Acidic Glavenus's tail, when it has its acid coating, can inflict Defense Down on you when you're hit. Counter this by having Iron Skin skills or immediately using an Adamant Seed.
Roll To Side To Dodge Jump Tail Attack
When the Acidic Glavenus jumps and swings its tail forward, it's best to dodge to the side. You'll avoid getting hit and be able to set up for a short combo when the monster pauses.
Keep Distance During Spin Tail Move
The Acidic Glavenus can easily halve your HP with its spin tail move. It'll even do the move consecutively when enraged. Make sure to keep distance when it bites its tail to do this move.
