      Either my game broke or this bastard's AI is modeled after a kangaroo. It would use the jump attack on my palico constantly and i could not get close to it due to the horrendou*****box on that attack.

        When I first saw the acid pools I thought the exact same thing as rage gaming: "hmm what happens if I just step on it?". I literally thought it would get me dragon blight but instead defense down. I was really dumb that time like he doesn't even do any dragon related things! His armor is the best for rotton vale btw

          I hate him... I used to like him but now I don't. here's a tip... don't take a plaico with you into his special arena... he keeps chasing your palico with his jumps and barely uses his tail... I basically had to chase him for 20 min straight sins I'm a DB user... and every time I got anywhere near him, he would jump away again and deal way too much damage... and when I think "oh, since he ignores me, I might as well carve it's tail that I somehow managed to break off," my palico just desides to run back to me... F*k this monster and F*k my palico! both can go die...

            The trivia says acidic glavenus tail blade was based on a katana/longsword so then why the #$_#@ did they do my boy so dirty with the bone***** on the katana of all weapons when other types have unique designs????!

              The weapons this thing makes are extremely underwhelming. I sure hope they can inflict defense down because otherwise they are just an insult compared to other weapons.
