      This monster is BROKEN. It attacks nonstop over and over and over gives you no time to heal and does massive damage. it doesnt help that the hitboxes are crummy AT BEST on this thing and it seems to hit me with every boulder no matter where its thrown. it makes no sense why this monster is not only the second one in ICEBORNE but its a must solo fight to make it even worse. If you want this monster to be this tough you gotta give us the tools to beat it!

        Until I fought this thing in the arena I didn't really appreciate just how massive this thing is. Definitely the biggest normal monster in the game.

            I have hunted a larger version (only marginally) of what is stated here, 2982.00 on the dot (maybe largests of the large gold crowns). I know it doesn't matter for the purposes of trophies/achievements but I thought I would add that. iirc small and large gold crowns are usually within 5-10% of the true smallest and largest vaules for example my small crown for banbaro is 2164.36, larger than what's on this page, but enough to register a small crown.

              Can he potentially deal effluvium build up like how tigrex can in the rotten vale? I've noticed a lot of these new roaming monsters get that gimmick.

                I never used dung pods up until this fat *****ing hit-box-face. If you're trying to hunt something else and he shows up, and a living creature looks at him funny or a spec of kinsect dust makes him sneeze, be prepared to have his *****ing aggro until one of you dies or you throw***** in his face. After he makes that petulant WAAAHHHH crybaby roar, of course. ***** this thing.

                  So weird seeing this monster in the other locales, seems so out of place, of course, I like the idea of more all-locale monsters

                    It looks really similar to duramboros from earlier games. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s phylogenetically related to it. Duramboros is a massive brute wyvern with ram-like horns. The lips and face resemble it too.

                      He's cool. Would have loved it, if it actually was a fanged beast and not a brute wyvern, but what'cha gonna do? Can't wait to sunbathe next to that thing.
