Preparing For Raging Brachydios

Bring Fireproof Mantle

Raging Brach also deals a lot of Blastblight and Blast-induced explosions that can easily tear away at your HP. Bring your Fireproof Mantle to help negate the effects of Blastblight.

Use Ice Weapons To Hunt

If the Raging Brachydios has the same weakness from older games, Ice-based weapons will be your best bet to do the most amount of damage.

Bring Recovery Items

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

Avoid Hitting Reddened Parts

Avoid Hitting Reddened Parts

When the Raging Brachydios has reddened parts in its body, these will explode when hit. Make sure to avoid them to keep safe from damage.

Slime Explodes Almost Instantly

When the monster drops slime on the ground, it won't have an elongated countdown like the normal Brachydios. Avoid getting onto the monster's slime at all cost as these explode almost immediately!

Tail Can Deal Massive Explosions
