Seals away rage on Elder Dragons

Elderseal is a Weapon Mechanic introduced in Monster Hunter World (MHW). It will prevent certain Elder Dragons from using their special aura abilities and enrage attacks as often. 


How Elderseal Works

Weapons that wield Dragon Damage  have one of three levels of Elderseal - Low, Average, and High - indicating the rate at which the effect triggers. When Elderseal is triggered, an Elder Dragon will be briefly staggered and their special Aura will be dissipated for a short time. This has no effect on monsters that are not Elder Dragons.

The level of Elderseal wielded by a Weapon can be modified by the Elderseal Boost Skill.

Sources of Elderseal

The following Weapons can inflict Elderseal on Elder Dragons. All Weapons in the Dragonbone branch of each Weapon Tree wield Dragon Damage. All Safi'jiiva Weapons.

In addition, while both Light and Heavy Bowguns do not wield Dragon Damage, some can fire Dragon Ammo, which has a high chance of inflicting Elderseal.

Dragon Pods for the Slinger also inflict Elderseal, and can be dropped by Elder Dragons during combat.
