Seething Bazelgeuse Details & Locations


Seething Bazelgeuse Combat Info

  • Kinsect Extracts:
    • Red: Head,Tail
    • Orange: Back, Belly
    • White: Wings, Legs
  • Unlike regular Bazelgeuse, Seething Bazelgeuse is not an invading monster, meaning it cannot appear in hunts randomly. An example of a Master Rank invading monster is Savage Deviljho.
  • Enraged mode: attacks faster and starts dropping blue bombs more often.
  • You can obtain shiny drops by attacking the head or the tail.
  • Tail and chest drop blast bombs that do physical and fire damage at the same time.
  • Seething Bazelgeuse's bombs will always explode on their own, even if Seething Bazelgeuse is not enraged. A weapon or Seething Bazelgeuse's attacks will trigger the explosion early.
  • Seehting Bazelgeuse's body will gradually switch from an orange/red glow to a purple glow. Once the purple is at its maximum intensity, the scales will behave differently.
    • They will mutate to leave a purple lump on the floor.
    • They explode faster, deal more damage and have a larger blast radius.
  • Seething Bazelgeuse's only new attack, the "Ultimate Divebomb" sees Bazelgeuse rising into the air with a spin, scattering scales in a circle all around him. He then comes crashing down in the center of the circle, creating a massive explosion. He finishes with a unique roar that resets his color back to orange and ends his enraged mode. Seething Bazelgeuse only does this when he is completely purple and enraged.

        Iceborne may have too many invaders, but I really miss Bazel being one. They could have easily kept him as an invader while Banbaro just kept chilling in the Reach.

          so has it ever tried to gather up all his friends and blow up astera?
          or: get all of its kind and blow up fatails
          OR: work with deviljho and rule the new world but then the deviljhos would probably TAKE OVER
          ( that would be bad and we would all die )

            literally one of the best designed MR monsters, balanced moveset from hr with a few new good moves (Unlike ruiner), good hitzones (how rare) and still is kinda relevant in endgame since the tempered version is t3 for gems

              Expect the Savage Devilhjo to stop by pick a fight. Bring plenty of dung pods if you don’t want him to stay.

                  He is very beautiful and deadly but he ain't an invader so toned down the deadliness there. first time fighting him and seeing admiral behind me, me: WTF?! when i fought him he wasn't to hard but he still is more deadly than regular Bazelguese for me. But a very beautiful and and fun fight. Also one of the best armor sets againste Raging brachydios

                    Spent 70 minutes fighting it solo for the story quest using longsword; I reccomened using a bow since its flying around all the time; flashbugs; traps; it can runaway in expediation mode if you wake it from sleep, unlike other monsters this one will wake up and fly away, so you're better off trapping it/capturing it;

                      They took an already pretty fun fight and just double downed on the memes. He’s not very hard, but his divebomb super is probably the flashiest monster attack in the game. Total spectacle fight.

                        Actually kind of a laughable encounter. I play Chargeblade, nowhere near any decent set yet (just finished story), with Chrome Fortress III, elementless and a focus on crit. But no matter how you build, I think Seething is a joke. It was my 1st fight with it and went very well. Simple advice: 1. stay near its legs / under its belly where neither tail nor neck bombs can hurt you. Occassionally it will drop on its belly but with a huge telegraph so you cannot miss it. This is especially important during enrage. 2. Take max blastblight resistance and decent fire resist (at least 20 to become immune to blight) and you are fine. I have encountered far less 'dangerous' burst damage than with, to take an example at random, Brachydios. 3. Deviljho is nice to have but not necessary. Watch them massacre each other, collect the drops, if Bazel leaves all you gotta do is drop a smoke bomb and call your tail rider. No need to deal with Deviljho in any way. If you are lucky he will actually follow you (by chance) and f*cking do it again. 4. Chargeblade, Lance or anything with a shield is helpful in the rare situations when you cannot stay underneath Bazel and it does tailswipe or charges at you. I was very scared of this fight but it's kinda easy.
