Alatreon - Tips & Tricks

Alatreon Overview

Alatreon Overview

The Alatreon is a forbidden elder dragon that shifts between elements at will. It is a formidable foe that requires the best skills from every Hunter in the fight.

Shifts Between Fire, Ice, & Dragon Elements

Shifts Between Fire, Ice, & Dragon Elements

The Alatreon will shift between Fire, Ice, and Dragon elemental attacks at will. You'll need to bring neutral weapons & armor or coordinate with teammates on which gear to bring while hunting.

Preparing For Alatreon

Check Out Best Builds Against Alatreon

Use Immunity Mantle

The Immunity Mantle negates elemental blights and protects from them, too. Since Alatreon shifts between 3 elements, the Immunity Mantle can protect you from Fireblight, Iceblight, and Dragonblight.

Bring Max Potions & Astera Jerky

It's important to bring recovery items such as Max Potions and Dusts of Life. When Alatreon uses Escaton Judgement, Astera Jerky will keep your health gauge from going in the red during the powerful attack.

Bring Fire, Ice, Or Dragon Weapons

When in Fire Active, Alatreon is weak to Ice. When in Ice Active, Alatreon is vulnerable to Fire. When in Dragon Active, Alatreon is weak to Dragon weapons. Use them accordingly to deal enough damage.

Break Horns To Prevent Elemental Active Status

Break Horns To Prevent Elemental Active Status

Focus damage on Alatreon's horns to break them. This will prevent it from shifting to Fire Active or Ice Active status.

Supernovas Between Elements

Supernovas Between Elements

Alatreon will have a one-hit kill move called Escaton Judgement. This deals massive damage-over-time, in a matter of seconds, and can easily make you fail the quest. Use healing items and Astera Jerky to keep your health up.

Subpar guide. Not only do you contradict yourself, you don't speak about how to counter the OHKO aside from tanking and healing (which you can't do). You need to do high elemental damage fast, to negate being 1 shot.
