      I 3 carted the first time using a hammer. I thought I was good with the hammer cause it was my main. But then I switched to the sword and sheild for the first time and killed him twice.

        Beat him first try without carting with Lance. Still have to go back and do the Gajalaka sidequest, sadly. Fighting this thing is so annoying, feels like it goes on forever and he loves to spam the ranged moves and teleportation. grrr

          I was able to finally kill the bugger. Granted I didn’t do the Laka side mission to save time, but I had 20 minutes left at least. But I still need to go back and face him again to complete the side missions and get the armor set.

            I thankfully beated him in my first fight but THAT WAS HELL PAINFULL. First i went with Gerald weapon until last stage where i got tired and went for my dual blades but it didnt changed much. My biggest problem were the godamn Jagras fliching me and stopping my combos, on top of this asshole summoning the branches. It took me 47min, just after the last 3 min warning and i was tired AF and was about to give up. Then the bastard dieded and i never want to fight him anymore

              I heat this twiggy turd so much. My death count is 7 so far. The whole mission wound’t be so bad if I didn’t have to redo the side missions and main mission each time I get K.O.ed. I use the glaive but at the end he jumps behind me and goes Alfred Hitchcock on me. What’s funny is that pukie almost always out last me

                    Any tips for taking this***** down with the light bowgun? I even went out of my way to load up on fire herb from the two plants that even grow in the Ancient Forest to be able to make more fire ammo and could not take it down
