Safi'jiiva requires special strategies in order to defeat

  1. Environmental Attacks
    The perimeter of the 1st Level features several spots that can be used to greatly deplete Safi'jiiva's energy. Stagger Safi'jiiva and drive it out to the edges, where you can use the environment to your advantage.
  2. Safi'jiiva's Movement
    Safi'jiiva will doggedly focus its attacks on the hunter that deals the most damage to it. When it's focused on a hunter, it is more likely to use highly energy-consuming attacks, so take advantage of this chance to reduce its energy.
  3. Drawing Safi'jiiva's Attacks
    The hunter that Safi'jiiva is focusing on can draw its attacks by continuously attacking it. If the hunter fails at keeping its attention, Safi'jiiva will enter a much more dangerous, aggressive state. Hunters who are not being focused on can perform flinch shots on its head to draw its focus, so hunters with superior defensive skills can help turn the tide of battle.
  4. Avoiding Safi'jiiva Ultimate Attack
    Safi'jiiva can unleash a massive area-clearing attack that can cause you to faint in one shot, and cannot be dodged normally. The attack has a long build-up, so once you see it coming, take shelter behind obstacles in the environment.

        Just an FYI, Safi jiiva is not considered a black class dragon. He had potential but we ended up killing him before he can reach that title. Seeker has interesting dialogue though. Heavily hints at another one to do the "deed".

          After how long this content has been out and how quickly information was added, and still no mention of the 5th heavy bowgun, Safi's Rapidcannon? Okay.

            the weapons are awesome and you can do the normal augmenting on them along with the extra augmenting from the siege materials.

              I'm sure his fight will most likely be a combination of the kulve taroth siege with fight elements of the behemoth fight. People will have to break parts and do damage to force it to descent further. With each descent his skin will turn more black and his attacks will become more relentless. There will probably be less stalagmites to survive his star attack that will also work as damage check that will probably annihilate the team if not enough damage was done. The gathering hub will need to fight it multiple times to increase the persuit level which reduces the threshold for breaking parts and the damage check until you can finally kill it.

                Idk just my theory Xeno : a newborn sapphire star Safi : a red giant star Black phase : a black hole Since there's a space armor coming, well that's my hypothesis

                  I find the Deep red coloring to be quite interesting considering its larval form as Xeno'jiva. Almost gives it a demonic presence in direct contrast to the "divine" presence.

                    This is gonna be fun fighting my first black dragon. Im new to Monster hunter and Im still working my way to this point. I've heard of Fatalis and all the others. I personally thought xeno would never get an adult version. Let alone be classified as a black dragon and to add its getting a 16 player siege?! This battle will be LEGENDARY
