Effluvial Expert is a Skill in Monster Hunter World (MHW).

Use mega nutrients and max potions for Vaal, This only stops environment damage.
Getting real tired of this game's lack of explanations.
Do people not read? It very clearly says it only works on environmental effluvium.
A Big Metal Gas Mask: Vulnerable to Effluvium
Plague Doctor Mask: Vulnerable to Effluvium
Shirt made of Bug: Immune to Effluvium
Belt made of Cobra: Immune to Effluvium
Effluvial Expert will specifically nullify Environmental Miasma Damage only. It will have no effect on the elder dragon Vaal
This skill is a lie :) I farmed a lot to make up a build against AT Vaal but I still get effluvia damage with effluvia resistance maxed + this skill. So, when is supposed to use, or against which monster? P.S.: Play on PC, so I don't know if this is a shadow bug...
The other miasma related perk, Effluvia Resistance, will stop the 50% health cap. This effect does not seem to do anything at all. Tested on AT Vaal, he still does regular damage ticks with this ability equipped. PC 04-29-2019
Does this stop Vaal's damage tick, though? I know the resistance stops the HP halving.
Doesn't deal with Vaal Hazak's effluvia miasma, for that you need Effluvia Resistance.
