Bring Recovery Items

The Raging Brach is definitely more powerful than its regular counterpart & that one already packs a punch, Make sure to bring a lot of Mega Potions & Max Potions to keep your health up in the hunt.

Stun Resistance Recommended

Raging Brachydios' attacks have a high stun yield, & will often put you in a stunned state. Having a Stun Resistance as part of your gear will stop you from getting stun locked to the cart.
