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.

      Should be mentioned that after a while MR jho stays enraged permanently, and if this happens it will relentlessly hunt you down no matter where you run on the map, how many times you escape with a flash, it will just walk straight to you and try to **** you up, it's so dumb I love it

      • Anonymous

        MR jho is piss easy. who wrote he is enraged immediately? At least for me the first 5 minutes of hunt he never enrages. Ranged attacks are the lamest kinds for Jho because what made him annoying in HR were gigantic hitboxes as he continued using melee attacks. Only two weapon types gunlance and lance will have trouble avoiding the leaping pin attack and even that is not dangerous just equip yourself with flash pod and you are safe. And I was shocked how his exhaust mechanic was not removed. He keeps getting toppled over or get exhausted by my palico attacks. Are you kidding me? MR Jho is a nightmarish creature in theory because he always win turfs, chew monsters like toys, rivals elder dragons and what not but in reality he's easier than a Teostra.

          I recently found out I love Lance and yeah it shreds pretty much everything if used the right way. Savage Uncle Joe though... I dunno, I feel like he's programmed to spam the pin attack against shields. I can easily avoid it with Gunlance+Evade Extender, but with Lance it seems there's NOTHING I can do. Tried everything, dash forward, hop back, dash to the sides... Uncle Joe gets me no matter what. I usually try to face him with some good slinger ammos ready to counter the body slam after the unavoidable pin, but it still feels so wrong. Hell I can even dodge Safi's pin attack with Lance with good timing and positioning, but vs Uncle Joe it seems 100% impossible. Any Lance user out there got some advice against smokey Joe and his om-nom-nom attack? :(

              Why do I even bother hunting this guy instead of old Jho, when the only shiny he ever drops are the gems? I have not gotten one Blackpiel yet, eventhough I usually break at least 3-4 parts and killed him about 30 times by now. Game, what have I done to you, that you treat me this way!?

                iunno why but i just love jho.. whenevs i need to test new setups i go jho hunting, and i always make sure i have at least one tempered one on investigation

                  He isn't any fun to hunt really. Big & fast with pins and crazy hitboxes (get hit from his tail a mile away!). At least his armor bonuses aren't good and neither are the weapons, so you won't have to struggle farming him.

                  The original one was difficult but at least it left a sense of accomplishment. This one, well, just is boring to fight. It's a battle of how many times can you avoid his attacks rather than skill. Weapons that have high flexibility like S&S, DB, etc seem to be the best since you can avoid all his hits. His AOE breath to the ground means guarding and tanking isn't viable since it goes through guarding even with Guard Up. Be careful using the Clutch Claw since his moves will randomly knock you off pretty much his whole body, even if he isn't using that part for the attack.

                    I might be making things worse, but just imagine millions of killer pickles riding a flying savage Deviljho, using another savage Deviljho as a weapon.

                      Man, frick. I thought that by capturing I was getting better odds of getting devil crook. I looked here and you have to kill him. All those traps and ancient potions wasted. Crap.
                      Must farm more.
                      If nobody sees me for like three weeks don't be surprised

                        I agree that he is a good companion. He saved me from a fulgar and an ebony odo. Because he was good boy, I catch him. He sleep tight.

                          i think savage deviljho is absolutely terrifying i always make it mad and then i realize that i´m in deep ****. so i just run and of course he just follows me and its scary to me cause i just look in to those eyes and i see the inner depths of hell and i know then to jest keep running. then when i get to my camp i kind of go in and out of my camp just to get him more pissed and just start taunting him. until the point i´m not quick enough and he kills me but all i´m saying is that he is probably the first thing you see in hell

                            Depending on his mood, Savage Pickle can be a great hunting companion.

                            For example, a few days ago I was hunting a Lunastra in Elder's Recess and suddenly Pickle came out of nowhere and started beating the ever living s*** out of her. Hell, he knocked her out of a friggin' supernova like it was nothing! I almost felt sorry for Lunastra. Almost. Sure, I could beat her on my own but not as fast as ol' Savage Pickle. In less than 15 minutes she was lying on the floor, stone dead. And then after asserting his dominance with a last roar, Pickle walked away like a motherf***ing boss. I still have a beef with that brute but this hunt changed how I see him, especially considering that he completely murdered the monster that I hate the most.

                              “Savage Deviljho are created when a normal Deviljho partakes in some cannibalism.” Yeah, I know. He’s so angry all the time because he ate his wife. And we (the hunters) keep talking about it in his face. No wonder he’s so pissed off.

                                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.

                                      Between Rajang, Diablos in heat (black diablos) and this savage pickle... I'd pick the pickle to hunt, I find it easy with insect glaive
