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.
