Flinch Shot Kulve Taroth to Walls

Kulve Taroth doesn't go down when it is flinched shot, but it will receive a great deal of damage when it connects to a wall. You can use your Temporal Mantle to attach to Kulve Taroth without being shaken off.

When Kulve Taroth is not in its Molten State, you can wound it in its various body parts to create weak spots. This is recommended to increase the damage and get Critical Damage..

Do Not Mount Kulve Taroth Here

Although you can build up your mount in this section, it's not recommended to do it this early in the raid. Save the mounts for the 3rd Part where bringing down Kulve Taroth is essential.

MR Kulve Taroth - Second Area

Use Boulders Against Kulve Taroth

Use Boulders Against Kulve Taroth

Bait Kulve Taroth to stand under boulders and use a slinger/bullet to bring it down. This is a huge burst of damage to help you reach the required damage for the area.

Sleep, Paralyze if Possible

When you find yourself in a pool of Lava that Kulve Taroth has spewed, you can get out of it quicker by clutching on to Kulve and moving away. You can choose to flinch or wound it before going down.

Lunge Slam at 3rd Area has Bigger Range

Because of the molten rock that spews after it lunges, Kulve Taroth's lunge slam has a bigger hitbox and can catch you even if you're a bit far from it. The best thing to do here is to run to the other side or use your shield to block if you have one.

Lunge Slam can NOT be blocked and is OTK for ranged even on 200 hp. Have fun trying to get out of the way in time with cumbersome HBG.
