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.

  • 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.

      Black veil Hazaak gear is wonderful for this beast, speed eating, super recovery and naturally high defense. Also has good armor vs water moves. The armor also buffs dragon attacks, it has a fair 2 star defense against dragon, which is not bad. Strangely resistant to slinger ammo, when raging, piercing pods don't make it flinch.

          She has more phys def when wet but takes more fire dmg, and takes less fire and more phys than dry.

          Also why is this page saying "ranged works best" when her wings take no dmg from bullets... and are the biggest hitzone

              I actually managed to slay Namielle on my very first try with just one other player in the quest. That was also the only time I slew it. Every other time I had a full party and we were just carting left and right. I think its easier with only two people because there is less health that way and because your palico can sometimes agro it, giving you and your partner more space to deal damage. But thats just my experience. Also, bring your waterproof mantle because those puddles WILL stunlock you and those lightning attacks aren’t as obstructive as those water attacks. You’re gonna do a lot of running so waterblight is a nono.

                Not really that different except that she attacks more often and will use her ultimate multiple times, and if you don't have have vitality 3 and great thunder resistance it will one shot you. i beat her on first try, i currently use mrkt gear which has wide range and speed eating which helped a lot. If you are having a hard time, have a elemental L meal, have high thunder resistance and use appropriate weapons.

                  So just fought AT nami. She doesn't really have any new moves, but her old gimmick has been much enhanced. Anything that could put down water spots now does so in a bigger area, and her slide movement now leaves a huge trail of water. As such all her current drags and lightning shocks all have much higher range. In addition she starts electrified and doesn't ever stop, so her full moveset is always available. She may also NOT run after her ultimate now so give them a sec before you pat yourself on the back.

                    Do note that AT Namielle’s beam is shown to be going in the opposite direction than is standard in the trailer. While it’s unknown if there will be any “new” moves, there are definitely some tweaks to keep us on our toes!

                      People whining about Namielle being too easy are going to throw a hissy fit if they can’t solo AT Nami first try, like bruh make up your minds. In the meantime I’ll just be enjoying the light show.

                        I WAY overprepared for this fight lmao full set of blackveil vaal set A gear and a rank 3 thunder charm and nether chainblades made this fight a complete joke. I felt unkillable, didn't have to deal with blights, attacks didn't hit very hard so my armor usually healed it up over time and I killed it in 20 min on my first ever try. also just used vitality mantle and temporal cause its what I always use

                          Did 4 temp namielle investigations earlier and everytime when she lost her "water armor" (for example after the supernova), my palico would put it to sleep a few seconds later and it would wake up with its water armor back up again. Dont know if bug or intentional, but that is so annoying. It happened in 3 out of those 4 investigations. and you put it to sleep, it will wake up having the water armor back up again. Dont know if this is intentional and happens everytime or it is a bug that happens occasionally

                                First of the master rank arch tempered monsters. Here's hoping that they get the AT xeno treatment and get some awesome new moves instead of just becoming a huge damage sponge.

                                  Very curious what the armor will look like when the arch-tempered update drops. The gamma armors have always been a bit different design wise and I'm curious what we'll get considering how much I already enjoy the current armor designs.

                                    You can dolphin-dive through her ultimate people. Even without sound - hear her sharp-pitch-scree and see rear back and splash water everywhere? Spam putting weapon away and prepare to dolphin-dive asap xD
