Notes & Trivia

      The furious rajang special assignment has ruiner nerigante and is the only way I know of to bypass getting to mr100 to get any of the materials from the real loot pool

          Is tempered ruiner nergi found in all lvl 7 GL regions, or just lvl 7 tundra? There seems to be conflicting information on this.

            This TRUE SPIKEY BOI is pretty Dangerous considering you aren't given much room to work with and hard to sleep bomb.

              I have like 100 guild cards from 100 other players and when I see the ones that are MR 999 their Ruiner kills are absolutely crazy! Like the most hunted elder dragon I saw from most of them. For example I saw a guy who defeated Ruiner over 400 time's! I feel like this is partially due the event quest "Ode to Destruction" which rewards you Great Spiritvein gems but idk :/

                They made a mistake of locking him behind mr 100. By the time you get there you have already probably fought much harder fights and put them on farm (like raging,furious,and alatreon and MAYBE fatalis but that one is quite the stretch) to the point where you kinda just slap the crap out of him. He isn't exactly easy per say but if you were like me and went through the very painful process of soloing alatreon, he really doesn't stand a chance.

                  ok ill admit it he IS VERY COOL but he is also one of the 7 kings of the new world ( maybe even a god ) i mean with spikes that fly of his body that get harder and harder to break he has got to be a king i will tell you the 7 kings: velkhana, ruiner nergigante,namielle,shara ishvalda, blackveil vaal hazak, safi'jiiva and,alatreon
                  fatalis? well, HE IS A GOD

                    Not gonna lie, now that we're at the end of iceborne, I hope they make this the last Archtempered as a sendoff. The stuff done with Velkhana was great but it just didn't have the same power that going toe to toe with Archtempered nergigante gave off in base world.

                      he could be the best fight in the game, or the worst. Depends on how many insta pepegas and *****slaps he wants to do. along with the side hop
