          The Ballad of Rathalos

          Wyvern of fire and sky
          You might to daunting for those who try
          You inspire fear and hate
          For others have tried their fate
          But your fall grows near
          O how the Hunters hear your roar
          For most it is an ancient noire
          For Hunters will not stop till they see you gored

            I swear the Rathalos took me literally WEEKS to slay. I guess that's what you get when you fight the monster hunter mascot

            • A lot of lower rank players keep saying that he is annoying, a easier way to deal with his flying is to get your Palico the Flashfly cage, Go on a expedition, and find doodles, Once you get 3 small doodles and 3 large doodles you can follow the scoutflies to a cat, just follow it and you will get the flashfly cage.

                I find this guy very annoying also, flying off to all parts of the map. Fast travelling to the closest camp doesn't always work either, as sometimes i get to his new location and he just takes off again back to the other side of the map. The fight itself is reasonable, unless you have the Rathian join in then it can be a pain. Flash Pods are the best thing to bring him to ground then you just hammer the hell out of him.

                  Every time I fight Rathalos, at the end where it sleeps at its nest, there is always a Rathian waiting for me and they both gang up on me for a while, then Rathalos leaves the locale. How am I supposed to kill it then?

                    I finally came up with a good joke, alright here it goes... paRATHA the rapper. (If anyone didn't get that then... I wouldn't blame you its old...)

                      Someone thought that Monster Hunter World copied the Rathalos from another game created in 1994! That’s a 10000% LIE!! :/
