      First time fighting him was the "Roar that Splinters the Sky" Event Quest. Easiest fight ever, don't know what I was so scared of. Just went in with Spread 3 HBG and absolutely clapped his cheeks with np at all.

        why do its weapons have sleep attribute? nothing about the monster sends you to sleep. hell why do normal tigrex have blast when the monster hasten got explosion powers ? I get the game designers wanted to give us some options for fighting ice dragon but we got glavanus and brakidios for new weapons or you can upgrade your old rathian weapons for fire or hell dodogama for blast if you want to keep your old equipment so this seams like a slip up.

          This hunt was single handedly the most disappointing hunt. I though he would provide some sort of challenge, a Tigrex with a major attack boost and great new moves. But no. It was just, "MMMM YES I ROAR WOULD YOU LIKE TO HERE ME ROAR!? AGAIN YOU SAY MMMM YES ROAR IS FUN RIGHT!?" It was just awful. He just roared. And missed. I got hit like twice. Brute disappointed me...
