Glavenus Details & Locations

 

Glavenus Combat Info

  • Kinsect Extracts:
    • Red: Head/Tail
    • Orange: Back/Body
    • White: Legs
    • Green: Forelegs
  • Enraged mode: Throat glows a fiery red. Sparks its tail to light and inflicts fireblight-status-effect-mhw_sFireblight. (Firecharges are independent of enrage mode)
  • You can obtain shiny drops by causing its firecharged throat to explode, after either dealing enough damage or well aimed slinger shot (Puddle Pod is very effective)
  • Tenderizing the hindlegs is very effective since its head and tail are very high up and might be difficult for some weapons to attack.
  • Its back is riddled with breakable spots, making attacks from above very effective.
  • Be cautious when its throat starts to glow, it will start blasting fireballs. They stick to the floor, causing mhw-fire-damageFire damage in the area around them, and explode after a moment.
  • Be aware that its throat and head are separate hitzones, but attacking either will cause firecharged throat threshold damage
  • Shock Traps work well against it if you want to attack it's tail, if you would rather attack it's throat easily, Pitfall Traps are very effective
  • Fireproof Mantle can be extremely useful to reduce mhw-fire-damageFire damage and make you immune to fireblight-status-effect-mhw_sFireblight
  • Damaging its throat while it is glowing will cause it to fall to the ground over his back.
  • Be especially weary whenever it puts its tail in its mouth. It is an opportunity for damage but he might do a very high damage rotating attack.
    • This devastating attack takes about three seconds to charge. If your main weapon is a weapon with a counterattack ability, (The Longsword for example) take advantage of the free damage opportunity, count three seconds, then perform the counterattack.
  • Severing the tail: Glavenus' tail has a mechanic which stops damage going to the tail sever threshold when its tail is not flaming. This would make its tailtip only severable while it is flaming because that is the only time the threshold can take damage. The Lance's Claw counter is very effective, as you can take an easy hit whenever it attacks you with its tail.
    You can chip the tail however, by hitting tailbase with any type of damage, even when its not flaming. Its separate part from severable tailtip, with its own hitzone and breaking treshold.

      Found a Mini Gold Crown at the size of "2190.73" I did find a smaller Acidic Glavenus at the size of "2087.75" but I don't know if they have the same size for both.

        i will give you help if your stuck
        so in this fight you want to do a lot of dodging in this fight whether if your using a long range weapon or a short range his tail attacks make up about 85% of his move set so if you dont want to die right away the go for the head
        you can serve the tail but i would recommend attacking it when its not on fire also dont try to mount this guy because he has two different jump attacks he will also shoot fireballs out of his mouth three if he is enraged thees fireballs will explode in two seconds once it hits the ground so dont run into it ( one more thing when he jumps he will stab his tail into the ground but when he is enraged he will do this two times he will always hit you if you dodge to the side left or right so dont even try dodge backwards or superman dive to the side to avoid it ) - Smart Guy

          Hello my fellow hunters, mortals seem to be having a problem with this monster so I thought I could shed some light on some forbidden tips. His tail jabs can be dodged by one roll, during his two jab attack you can roll twice to dodge both attacks. He has a animation were he grabs his tail either means his massive damage beyblade attack or his unenrage animation, either way you probably want to superman dive because 75% of the time its his beyblade attack. For the assigned quest when he retreats to the zone above diablos and summon him to deal around 200-500 damage and afterwords the´ll have a turf war which will do around 600 damage. Anyway my dads yelling at me to go to sleep, so good luck my fellow hunters (P.S please comment any problems you have and I will do my best to help)

              he is a very cool monster and I expected for his great sword to be cool. "Sees great sword" wait what? I thought it would just be his tail stuck on a stick but this version works to I guess. but very cool fight and monster and weapons nonetheless.

                Capcom: Hey, so lets add in this t-rex with a flaming greatsword as a tail, not add any of the other fated 4 in this game, and to top it off we design it's supposedly beautiful GS with a metal wing with part of his face glued to it instead of JUST STICKING IT'S TAIL ON A METAL ROD

                  Capcom: What should we do for this guys great sword, let's see... he has a giant 1000 degree knife for a tail... You know what? Thinking of weapon designs is tough, let's just glue a scale to a regular one and be done

                      I really like this monster. Its design is great and the fight is intense and engaging BUT I utterly despise its tail sever mechanic. There are few things more annoying than finally getting an opening just to have its tail stop glowing. I really hope this gets changed to a simple reduction rather than full immunity to sever.
