      Is it normal to break every part off a rathalos and kill him with a landslide all with a odogaron charge blade? Cause I did that and man it was satisfying...

        Is it normal in the game to be able to walk up to Rathian and Rathalos without them attacking. I mean, I sat in the damn nest with Rathalos and he just sat there nesting with me??? My boyfriend says it's because they like me. XD

          flash pods for melee and/or a good bow/light bow gun wielder, alone is pretty easy as he doesnt combo much, Using a tobi-ka-dachi bow at max rarity shoot him in the wings when he flies up, usually will trip him up and bring him down on his head. Keep stamina up and get ready to roll(ALOT!).

          This fight is about keeping moving, and keeping clear of those talons, fire isnt too bad, but those talons hurt.

            So I ran into this guy when I was in the middle of hunting the Anjanath. I wounded him, then it ran away up into the trees straight into this *****er. My plan after pushing my jaw back up was to kill the winner...that plan backfired and I got curb-stomped.

              I killed my first rathalos yesterday. Me and my party got it to low health and it almost ran away. But it wasn't fast enough

                I cut off his tail and he left the world, and his cut-off tail despawned with him while I was harvesting it.

                  I've found that when using a heavy bowgun against Rathalos, Rathian and Diablos use the slicing ammo for headshots, wings and even the tail. It's so effective and lots of material come off too even sliced the tail off after a few hits. Use the wyvern ammo for headshots when it is on the floor for maximum damage! Hope this helps..

                    Not sure if this happens often, but when I fight Rathalos, usually a Rathian will come to assist, making the fight a 2v1. It's difficult to tell the two apart, but I was lucky and took out the tail before Rathian showed up. I didn't have too much trouble with it if I just focused Rathalos though

                      I'm Farming Rathalos for armour yet I haven't even hunted Legiana yet. Aww well. I just need 3 more shells and 3 more Monster bone+'s and Ill be done. For any people new to MHW who are struggling. All I can say for Rathalos is Gtg and you can hunt him in Barroth gear. I do so in Tobi Kadachi's gear since he is weak to Dragon, Lightning, Water and Ice.
