Savage Deviljho Details & Locations

 Avoiding Savage Deviljho

  • Fighting Savage Deviljho is in no way required to beat Iceborne. However, Savage Deviljho likes to show up uninvited.

  • Like his regular counterpart, Savage Deviljho can be encountered on every map that isn't a dedicated Boss arena.

  • Savage Deviljho invades Elder Dragons quests, even assigned ones. The longer the hunter spends fighting the Elder Dragon, the higher the Chance of Deviljho showing up. It will spawn close to the Elder Dragon and immediately go for a Turf War. Afterwards, it will  either leave or go for the hunter instead.

  • Most Investigations with good rewards and large time limits have a Savage Deviljho waiting in them.

  • Savage Deviljho will usually approach the hunter at least once if they are on the same map. To lose them, Flash Savage Deviljho, then run away. Never get between a Savage Deviljho and its prey. Use the interactions with other Monsters to scram and wait until your target and Savage Deviljho separate.


Utilizing Savage Deviljho

  • There are few monsters that can stand up to a Savage Deviljho, limited to most Elder Dragons (except for Kirin), Rajang (and potentially Furious Rajang) and Seething Bazelgeuse. All other monsters are mostly defenseless against Savage Deviljho. The hunter may choose to use this to their advantage by deliberately luring a Savage Deviljho to an unsuspecting target.

  • The Challenger Mantle will help the hunter to keep Savage Deviljhos, on the contrary, the Ghillie Mantle will make losing Savage Deviljo significantly easier.

  • Savage Deviljho will consistently slam other monsters for 500 damage that the player can see because it is considered environmental damage like Blast (other attacks will still deal damage, but no damage numbers will show up).

  • If the hunter wants to capitalize on this, they should watch out to not stand between Savage Deviljho and its prey, to not get caught in the crossfire.

  • Savage Deviljho is especially effective against Fanged Wyverns and Bird Wyverns, as Savage Deviljho will effortlessly pick them up with its mouth. Its target has no chance of fighting back and will repeatedly get slammed into walls and dragged accross the floor for very high damage. This lasts for quite a while untlil Savage Deviljho's prey is finally released and runs away. This interaction somewhat counts as a Turf War and has a cooldown period.

Savage Deviljho Combat Info

  • Kinsect Extracts:
    • Red: Head/Tail
    • Orange: Torso/Back
    • White: Legs
  • Enraged mode: Muscles expand and bulge out of its body, making Savage Deviljho deal more damage but also receive more damage. Attacks faster. Uses its Dragonbreath more often.

  • Unlike regular Deviljho, Savage Deviljho inflicts Defense Down with every other attack, which can be countered by Iron Skin.

  • Savage Deviljho also likes to coat half of an Area in Dragon Element clouds, so having the Dragonproof Mantle equipped will help.

  • Savage Deviljho enrages easily and stays enraged for large periods of time. It is also entirely possible Savage Deviljho will enrage immediately again after calming down.

  • Weaken and Attack the legs to trip Savage Deviljho. Attack the head during Savage Deviljho's multi hit combos to knock it over for a short damage window. Use the environment to your advantage and consider using traps to create damage opportunities. Note that Savage Deviljho still attacks out of a Pitfall Trap.

      He was so terrified of Rajang lol, when I was doing an rajang investigation in the waste I saw savage deviljho to. He helped me for a bit but rajang managed to tip him over. When rajang moved to the big lake savage deviljho followed me only half way! Finally after 5 minutes he decided to come and we basically worked together like rivals. He did over 2000 damage and I walled rajang. In the end I had to flash savage pickle and capture rajang. Woth the help of savage I finished the quest in 15 minutes!

        BTW watch out for his mouth when you grapple on to him because if his mouth has dragon smoke it will do chip damage to your health

          I get used to normal devilijho after 5 times hunting him in world but this guy is someone I would like to avoid for now like i have 1025 defense and he got me defense down until i was a mere 892 defense. I will be brave enough to fight him when I get full ugrade for my furious rajang armor.

              For everyone hating on my boy red pickle jo, he is my buddy and i won't stand disrespecting. Jonny booh is the best hunting buddy you could ever ask for: you hunt? He will hunt too! And no matter what you cant tell me he isn't a sweetheart. I mean, every time i find him in a mission, not only he kills my target for me, but than he goes away too leaving me all the loot for myself. Truly the best companion a hunter could ask for

                Waiting for a arena/event quest starring this guy and Rajang. Call me a masochistic maniac but I only want this for the possibility of this quest being called: The Angry Monkey And The Angriest Pickle.

                  You can actually use dragon pods to calm him down. Granted it takes about 6 shots to the head, but after that you can bang him into a wall.

                      Tempered asshole pinned me three times in a row, with no way to escape due to fixed stun lock/on the ground animation - the AI decided to spam it before breathing on me. *****.

                          I don't get it. What makes this guy so special? He RUINS EVERY HUNT HE SHOWS UP IN!!! Either one-shotting me or taking my target away like a dog toy. I've had to abandon almost every quest he showed up in because he takes away like 15 minutes worth of fight and because RNG hates me most of my investigations are under 50mins. F this Pickle Rick reject. It used to be fun and hilarious when I'd have to run from him now it's just downright annoying. He's like the annoying younger sibling of your friend that breaks all your stuff. Rant over.

                            It makes me immeasurably happy that I can type into Google "Savage Pickle" and it'll know exactly what I'm talking about.

                              Tempered version dies so insanely fast with 3 Impact mantle Spread HBG & a hunting horn user, general farming times ALWAYS sub 4 in Harsfrost reach. Easiest T3 farming of my life.

                                probly the toughest non-elder monster(rajang is also a contender) but his armor and weapons are utterly useless. not even for fashion

                                  I know he's a pain in the ass but the best encounter I ever had was in the guiding lands. A massive Banbaro chaged in just as Jho stunned me and proceeded to show the Jho that it was his turn to rule the lands. For thr entire fight we almost wwe style tag teamed the poor pickle. I olay IG with a blast kinsect. I just kept setting up blast dust as i rolled to staye out of ol ban's way. Jump in set em off, and let him charge it till it died. Then I split out of respect for the new king...
