Namielle is a Large Monster in Monster Hunter World (MHW) Iceborne. ネロミェール (Neromyēru) in Japanese.


An Elder Dragon said to be able to command water and use it as a shield. Though very few sightings have ever been reported, they mention 'exploding water' and 'bright glowing lights.' Its existence remains shrouded in mystery."

Namielle Details & Locations


Namielle Combat Info

  • Deals mhw-water-elemental-damage_sWater and mhw-thunder-damage_sThunder damage, and can inflict waterblight-status-effect-mhw_sWaterblight and/or thunderblight-status-effect-mhw_sThunderblight.
  • Weak to mhw-fire-damageFire and mhw-dragon-damageDragon
  • Resistant to mhw-water-elemental-damage Water and mhw-thunder-damageThunder
  • Kinsect Extract:
    • Red: Head
    • Orange: Tail
    • White: Wing
  • Enraged mode: Wings shift to a gradient of green, blue, and purple lights. Whiskers also glow blue.
  • You can obtain a Shiny Drops by attacking ??
  • The monster mainly sprays water, which applies waterblight. These streams of water also leave behind puddles, which enhance Namielle’s movement and attacks. Namielle can fire a thin beam at these puddles, causing them to explode, or create large waves with a sweep of its wings. Namielle can also absorb these puddles to recharge its reserves.
  • Namielle will charge up lightning, which can be seen arcing in its wings and body. Namielle can enhance its physical attacks with this electricity, or fly up and store the electricity in its tentacle-like wing tips, striking the ground as it flies overhead. This flight attack can easily apply thunderblight if it should hit. Any puddles hit with this electricity will vaporize, dealing extra damage if a hunter is in contact, but causing the puddle to disappear. Connected puddles can arc electricity for a short distance.
  • Will let out a distinct roar and leap upwards, its center surging with glowing electricity. It will then slam into the ground, causing a “supernova” effect. A small arc of lightning will deal a bit of damage, then a massive shockwave will cause every puddle in the area to explode. Namielle will then leave, drained of all water and scales a beige color. This attack is one of the fastest “elder specials”, and can easily take out a hunter. The dive move is recommended to dodge, as areas such as the nest can be completely filled with puddles, making normal dodging ineffective. The total animation from roar to hit takes about four seconds.

Notes & Trivia

  • Can be lured with ??
  • Camouflage works until ?? range
  • It is known as the "Abyss Dragon."
  • Moss can be used to soak up Namielle’s water spots. However, since Namielle uses so many water attacks, it is not recommended to focus on absorbing these spots. Rather, in tight areas, use the moss to create safe spaces from Namielle’s devastating “nova” attack.

        Such a stunning monster. No cheap roar or chip damage tactics, just a fun and engaging fight that’s as much a spectacle as it is a battle. I could write a whole essay on why I love this monster. Simply incredible, no other way to say it.

            100% this is the original form of Vaal Hazak. I mean sure Kushala Daora was similar but this takes the cake. From movements and attack patterns it’s too similar to ignore. There’s a reason Vaal Hazak looks fishy and this monster is the reason why.

              15 water resistance, 5 lightning resistance. Level 1 or 2 vitality. (3 is okay but not needed) Rarity 10, 11, or 12 armor set upgraded to at least +3. That's literally all you need to be able to take very little damage from most of it's attack, and not die from being hit by it's strongest attack which it only does once or twice per entire mission. There are so many people dying in an SOS for this one and I think it's because people are neglecting their resistances.

                ok so i am here again... someone wanted me to look at this boy... I act like you all care when i know you don't but i just do this stuff for fun... Stygian Zinogre i mean Elbony Odogaron is coming soon so that's cool... anyways i am looking at the *****in three seconds we got looking at him and uhh... well yeah no that's a water elder dragon that's for sure... uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh he has glow whiskers on him... I got nothing people... alright well he does seem to use a more Chameleos like skeleton as the back is closer to the ground and the neck is longer then the normal skeleton, i say normal skeleton like there is one but you get the point his skeleton isn't the same as Kushala or Teostra and uhhh... his wings are bigger and glow like a *****in CEADEUS BEARD!!! ok I'm gonna go now this was pointless... also yes i agree with that one person about another water elder dragon after such a long time, he's about a comment down I believe but who cares really...

                  i wonder if hes an actual underwaterfight and a testrun for something like a water DLC after iceborne. it would make sense to test the waters (pun intended) for watercombat fith a single fight and look how it goes before rolling out a DLC about watercombat
