Notes & Trivia

  • This Nergiante Variant may have been created when a regular Nergiante eats something with a lot of power. (Like the Xeno Husk that fell after the assigned quest)

      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

            Finally fought for the first time and he was more annoying than regular Nergigante because his move when he slams his hands to the ground VERY wide spikes come out. Almost every time I got hit by it and results in bleed! I failed to superman dive so many times and it's really annoying. his head spikes are no problem but his hand spikes are a problem. And I think his dive bombs has more accurate aim. But I don't know if it's just me but when I clutch claw to his tail when doing his doing his dive bomb I didn't get hit but that just my experience. Overall more annoying than hard but an enjoyable fight. Also one funny moment and good karma happen after that fight, I was doing another guiding lands SOS flare and I was trying to get my rotted region to level 7 until Ebony odogoran was captured and I was about to leave when Ruiner showed up! AND he was in the rotted region! I really couldn't believe my luck so I fought him with the other hunters but sadly I disconnected mid battle. Luckily I and the other hunters already dealt 2 part breaks! So I kept fighting IN THE SAME AREA for 20 minutes while he was doing 9 dive bombs in a row! But after that he was almost dead and I used mega barrel bombs and he was dead. But it doesn't end there, after that I went to report the mission and My rotted region didn't go up that much so I was pretty sad.... BUT I noticed I got a gold crown Ruiner Nergigante! So I was happy again (end of my story and experience).

              his spikes spread out more and it causes bleed! I can't wait to fight him in the story quest since the fight with him in the shara ishvalda quest was kinda easy.

                Got to this boy way late, but it was worth it because Nergi is still cool. Felt pretty awkward wailing on it with Raging Brachy and Rajang gear though. For the comments, it's ENTIRELY possible to get to do Safi and hell, Alatreon before this spiky boy even appears as a full quest due to you needing to be MR 100. I play the game very slow, so that's why I got to him so "late" in the game after Raging Brachy and Safi was down for me. That said, laughably easy at that point. Mind's Eye (gem or set) and any strong blast or dragon weapon will destroy it. Mind's Eye is kind of a must for your sanity with it's spikes. I used mostly Stygian everything and Rajang mixed set for him. I don't run any "meta" builds, but I'll recommend you bring Speed Eating if you can slot it and boost your health, as it still hits pretty hard when enraged and you'll really like being able to drink potions fast if you don't already run Speed Eating. Also remember a Palico with the coral horn or shield buddy will save your butt much more on solo than with the healing spray and Immunizer can be used to stop bleed and heal more quickly if it tags you. To those still struggling, you got this!

                  Well... he was kinda easy, compared to black diablos that I cant beat without turtle gun lance, and well... that thing raging brachydios that I'll probably never try again, I could beat ruiner nergi in my first atempt

                    Honestly one of the most easiest hunts I've ever done, was scared of nothing. When I've done him I went to do his tempered version (Ode to Destruction) and it was easy as well. I'd say Raging Brachy is more difficult but :shrug:

                      This poor guy has not aged well. I bought Iceborne pretty late, and by the time i unlocked Nergi i already had full Safi, full Raging Brachy etc. - so not only was he pretty easy, but all his gear became obsolete before i even forged them. What a shame.
