      These things are massive! I was fighting it in the guiding land to level up my MR and I was sure it was a large gold crown. When I finished, it wasn't even a silver crown!

        Over my 2000 hours in this game i never fought this monster never had any reason too and most likely never will

          avoid fighting him if you can, unless you are prepared to be running after him during the whole fight. really annoying matchup for melee.

          • Anonymous

            hmmm I don't know if I hate this guy or just annoyed. I mean he's no where near my top favorite monsters but he ain't that annoying since he just covers the lava area in the elder recess and the guidings lands so if you fight something that doesn't go there then you barely know its even there. His fight is somewhat more enjoyable than Jyura's But still doesn't change the fact that when his skin hardens it will deflect your attacks so you have to consistently get torch pods or wait for him to go back in the lava. Sooooo honestly I just feel meh with this guy.

              I hate you. I hope you die. You’re f*cking annoying. Nobody likes you. Your creation was a mistake. You’re trash. You’re only the replacement for good clickity clack clack. I would say “die in a fire” but that wouldn’t work so f*ck you anyway. I never hunt you because you’re anti-fun. I wish you were the one getting f*cked by Behemoth instead of best boi. You’re ugly. You f*ckin’ f*cker f*ck, f*ck off, go f*ck yourself, and don’t ever show your face to me again because it makes me want to kill myself. The only good thing I have to say about you is that you’re not the worst fight, Kushala is however BUT AT LEAST HE LOOKS COOL AND HAS COOL LORE TO BACK HIMSELF UP YOU PATHETIC EXCUSE OF A MONSTER!!!!!!!! You don’t deserve to be in the Guiding Lands but if you weren’t the lowest levels of the vulcanic region wouldn’t have enough monsters to be initially interesting. At least your equally stupid sub-species didn’t make it there. But the only difference between you two is that that fish uses mud instead of lava. You’re a fish that swims through lava, but guess what; I have Heat Gaurd so I can also rub my face all on that magma. YOU’RE NOT SPECIAL, DOUCHEBAG!!!!!!!!!

                Can't get the mini-crown from this guy, compared to every other monster I have gotten it in a reasonable amount of hunte, not Lavasioth smh

                • Memes aside, I found this guy somewhat easier than his mud bathing brother. He doesn't "swim" as much (at least when I fight him) which greatly limits his move set. I'd hate to sound like a broken record but, CUT THE TAIL, BREAK THE FACE!

                    Tempered Solo (For "My name is Lavi!" of course) with the Tarroth Strongarm Water just for science. Was pleasantly surprised by the water phial damage and with with CB's on-board Minds Eye ability, and I "accidentally" killed it (no torch pods) before he had managed to drop about half of what you normally score by just sweeping-up decos between his fleeing phases...minor-groaner on the shiny loss, but gained a new favorite Lavi-whacker. This thing is also amazing for solo runs on AT Teo for farming Gleaming Aug Stones. -and you get to even demoralize it by dropping witty***** like "Welcome to Noah's Ark *****!". Wasn't an elemental CB fan before this drop.

                      capcom knew he's hated, so they intentionally trying to annoy their playerbase, by making him tempered jewel farm

                            For those comparing this to jyuratodus, actually lavasioth existed ~ 10 years before jyura, as he was part of the older games, unlike jyuratodus.

                                what's up with the in game weakness chart, is it 1 star weak to fire when hardened or 2 star? if 2 then it must be 5 star weak to water, so a cup should kill it like an M. Knight Shyamalan alien...
