      Saw someone using Alatreon insect glaive on her. Either his goals are beyond our understanding or he is kinda stoopid

                This might be controversial to say, but I actually enjoy hunting her. Keeps me on my toes, it never gets boring and very satisfying to eventually slay her. I usually fight her as a warm-up. And it does help improve your mastery over your desired weapon. If you can comfortably fight her, an extremely aggressive and massive beast, you’ll get a lot more comfortable with the rest of the entire game. After I did that optional quest to improve my Rocksteady-mantle I just went to the Guiding Lands for fun and hunted like 10 high tier monsters and a couple of Elder Dragons with relative ease, and even if it took some effort, I didn’t faint once. I just love the challenge this provides. (Just fyi, I use mainly raw builds, nothing elemental. To me its the most reliable way to hunt, and fighting a Black Diablos like this excites me the most)

                  I just killed my first black diablos with the deviljho horn and **** armor and it's not as hard as people say if you set a trap next to a cactuar and let it do half the work for you

                    I really wished she wasn't resistant to dragon. Also tip: to make things faster find devilijho in the area. If he's not there than find diablos, if he's not there than find a cactuar. PS if black and normal diablos get in a fight the winner is random so I would rather use devilijho.

                      the key to to black diablos is that you have to be very evasive and patient and wait for the oppurtunity to strike
                      you can try bait out the double tail check and get some free slashes on the head, you could wait for it to burrow and hit it with a screamer pod stuff like that just try to see how it's behavior (or AI) works and be creative
                      this aint a time test you have well over an hour to beat this black monster (unless investigation lol)

                        Nearly 29 minutes fighting this thing for Rocksteady Mantle+. It was infuriating, annoying and tiresome but somehow I did it. ...yay. ~ * Collapsed. *

                          Jee some of this info is awfully subjective ain't it. ''Master Rank Changes - One of the most annoying monsters to fight - Overall, avoid at all costs. To bad a tempered Black Diablos is Guarding the Rocksteady Mantle +''

                            I am going to say this because so many people aren't doing this, ALWAYS KEEP YOUR HEATH UP. Do not underestimate this monster she will kill you If she gets the chance I recommend at least 75% of your health is still intact before engaging

                              "a female diablos in heat" Yet fights the regular and white version? Diablos are strange creatures aren't they...?

                                For anyone farming the horns: Bring any weapon with sleep (or a Palico weapon, will take longer though) and try to get it to sleep as fast as possible. Then just put 2 Mega Barrel Bombs next to it's head and wake it up with your strongest attack to the head. That is usually enough to break one horn and damage the other one. Good luck.

                                  Some fights in MH games are just more annoying than challenging, and BD is one of them, due to the moveset and how they balanced her. Most time of the fight is not actually spent fighting but just waiting for an opening

                                      She's like a hidden Arch-Tempered Elder Dragon, especially with multiplayer HP scaling. I had a lot more fun fighting AT Kirin with no elemental resists.
