A new subspecies to the ferocious Glavenus, the Acidic Glavenus features a sulphur covered tail. Found only in the rotting areas of the New World, a corrosive fluid has crystallized on its tail, spraying acid with each swing that can apply a debuff to those that get caught in it.

      I stg, this dude loves trying to hug me when I'm playing bow. I literally can't see anything on the screen half the time when I'm aiming.

        He does have a Green Kinsect extract somewhere between his tail and belly. Managed to hit it few times but its really rare.

        • found Acidic Glavenus with a Large Golden Crown at the size of "2894.38" at the Event Quest. I do have Glavenus at "2978.41" Large Gold Crown but so far, haven't found Acidic Glavenus at the same size. I'm not even sure it existed. However, I did found Odogaron and Ebony Odogaron having the same large size of "1735.94" Large Gold Crown.

            • Hello my fellow hunters, mortals seem to be having a problem with this monster so I thought I could shed some light on some forbidden tips. If you use weapons that have a Pretty good damage outputs you can clutch claw to his Face and back since he has 2 or 3 moves that will knock you off in those areas. If you use HH and Hammer the head is a good place to clutch to because of stun damage. You Can also lead him to Tigrex and He will do 2000 to 4000 damage and he can possibly make him tired. Anyway my dads yelling at me to go to sleep so farewell and good luck. (P.S if your having any troubles please comment and I'll do my best to help.)

                  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.
