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

  • Kinsect Extracts:
    • Red: Head
    • Orange:  Torso/Forelegs
    • White: Wings
    • Green: Tail
  • Enraged mode: Wings shift to a gradient of green, blue, and purple lights. Whiskers also glow blue.

  • The monster mainly sprays water, which applies mhw-water-elemental-damage_sWaterblight. 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 mhw-thunder-damageThunderblight 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 should be dodged, 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.


The Arch-Tempered version of the Namielle monster can be extremely deadly. It's best for hunters to prioritize Range, and use the Canteen to get Felyne Insurance skill.

Special rewards: Arch-Tempered Namielle Pendant, Namielle Ticket - used to craft Namielle Gamma + Armor Set


  • Significant damage boost. Your defense should be above 1000 at this point, and most attacks still take around 70 health.

  • Now leaves water puddles underneath it as long as Namielle is coated in Water.

  • Enrages easier (Like most tempered monsters). Every Slinger Burst needs to hit its target, because Namielle will enrage after every single one.

  • Very Frequent use of the "Supernova" Move.
  • Will now sleep in the middle of area 10 when near-death, preventing any wake-up flinch shots.

Some tips for hunters:

  • Ranged weapons work best

  • Extremely difficult without Health Boost 3

  • Vitality Mantle and Temporal Mantle are very useful.

  • Lifepowders and such are very useful if you intend to do it as a group.

  • Namielle is weakest to mhw-fire-damage_sFire and status_effect-blastscourge_mhwi_iconBlast

  • Use Brightmoss to drain the puddles around the area

  • If your mantles are down and she is "electric" beware of OHKO from her slam

  • Patience! Slow and steady wins the quest

  • If you notice the camera zooming out, DROP EVERYTHING AND START RUNNING. That's the Supernova and its almost guaranteed a oneshot if you're caught in it.

    • The Supernova consists of two hits, one shock through all the puddles and a second one that makes all the puddles explode with a slighty larger blast radius.

    • Combined they can do serious damage through the bulkiest defense

    • Best avoided by diving right before Namielle hits the ground.

    • If you dodge it by standing outside the puddles, the Second hit may still hit you if you're standing too close.

Notes & Trivia

  • 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.

      If you are an SNS person then you can effectively block the supernova.
      Be warned while guarding, the supernova can still take out 50% of your health.

      But if you forget to Superman (like me) it can save you from a heap of trouble.

        hahah so easy for anyone struggling with him with Dual blades literally just spam the clutch claw in his tail if possible it never knocked me over from the tail only in front sometimes i did 80% of the damage or even more just by clutch clawing his tail lol (i had blight resistant too its good)

          If you're struggling with her, a solid advise would be slotting in Resuscitate, as of writing, I still haven't checked what waterblight does, but I never noticed what it does since resucitate negates it AND buffs you too, only for 1 slot compared to resistor. I beat her on my first try using 2piece rathian, and 2piece of the armor that gives critical status. I'm using mr pink rathian longsword.

          Poison works best, resucitate even better.

            I like it, but the hitzones make it rather annoying. After you Clutch Claw it's entire body (or at least the front legs and wings), it isn't so bad.

            • For a matter of fact, most people who say this and that monster is bad desgned and that's why they lose, are just pretty f***king much bad at the game. Get good instead of crying.

                nova attack is incredibly annoying can one shot most hunters and arch tempered namielle spams that attack! SPAMS THAT ATTACK!!! just let that sink in.

                  I assume the 1st part of her big move does water damage, but what kind is the 2nd part (the one that actually f***s you up)? Water, Thunder, Raw, or some combination? I've played around with resistance and defense combos, and can't seem to decide which reduces it more

                  • Hello my fellow hunters, Mortals seem to be having problems with this monster so I thought I could shed some light on some forbidden tips. I would recommend a fire weapon, You can do either Glavenus or Anjanath, or Rathalos. If you need Mantles just go to the steamworks and get a Celestial Wyvern Print. Water beams can be dodged by clutch clawing to the face and Resistor Jewels are helpful since you don't have to worry about water or lighting blight. Another weapon choice is Brachydios weapons because blast an stun are good. As for her Supernova, If the Camera zooms out and a puddle below her starts glowing, Just sheathe your weapon and superman dive. Anyway, My dads yelling at me to go to sleep so farewell and good luck my fellow hunters. (P.S if your having any troubles, comment down below and I will do my best to help.)

                      If you are havin trouble with tempered namielle and arch tempered namielle, I highly recommend using the wyvern strife dual blades due to her high weakness to both fire and poison. These dual blades with the proper element and ailment setup make every hunt for her so much easier. I only ever use dual blades for her so I don't have much experience with them, but the fact that I can complete her way more easily with them rather than my actual most comfortable to use main weapon set speaks to me about how good the setup is.

                        How are people having trouble with this thing? It's not that hard. Especially if you have full blackveil gear. If you're truly having difficulty, then step up your game, or don't even try alatreon.

                          I have managed to find a Namielle that is larger than the one stated on the page, coming in at 2560.31.

                            Just a tip if your doing a distant dark tide which is an Arch-temperd Namielle hunt, is that the amount of Namielle tickets you get is I think random because on my second attempt beating her I got 2 tickets, Namielle parts, and an elder dragon gem. But the third time I defeated her I got 1 Namielle ticket, Namielle parts, No elder dragon gem, but 2 sealed stones and carved. The Namielle fight doesn't have a lot of changes but I think the beam goes both ways? The most noticeable change is the place u fight her and where she sleeps, I forgot where she goes but she sleeps in the big/wide area. Also since she's arch-temperd of course expect high damage from her since even if I have over 1114 defense I still can get 3 shotted so make sure you have at least over 1000 defense. Also she spams her ultimate move almost every time and sometimes doesn't even leave after she does it. Fire/dragon weapons is recommended and even elder seal just to make sure. Also the more people you fight with the higher her heath is like up too 86.000 HP! But fighting her alone she only has 36.000 HP (still kinda a lot). Ok i'm getting tired and I hope this helps bye!
