      The RNG on the tenderplates is beyond ridiculous. I've killed this thing close to fifty times and gotten 2 tenderplates total. Breaking the head twice and everything, it just doesn't want to drop. It's already gotten to the point where I never want to see this monster ever again.

        How do I defeat this thing? Using the Velkhana LS and still took a long time to get to low health, only to get triple carted.

          To the editor: please update that you need to have two head breaks to get a tender plate and it you get this 100% of the time. Ive farmed this 6 times already with HBG. this item should be 5 stars as you get two tender plates every time

            His heads breakable twice in the second phase seconds break being a harvest able piece which no one here has mentioned meaning none have done it yet. Getting it in the reward bow after only breaking his head once is like a 5% chance at best.

              This guy, fittingly, has many similarities with Xeno'jiiva. Segmented wings, large beam attacks, and even very similar body structure. Their legs in particular are almost identical. To me it looks like Ishvalda is some sort of young Xeno'jiiva or something. It's all pale and its eyes are closed most of the time, like many newborn mammals. Only issue with this theory is that the Xeno'jiiva in the story was witnessed being born, so it's likely that the Xeno'jiiva we fight in game are probably newborns. I'm sure I'm not the first person to think of this, but I thought it was cool.

                You should update this so that it has info on both phases of the fight. They have separate weak spots and weaknesses. You can press Triangle to toggle between the two forms on the Hunter Info page.

                  Am I the only one who thinks that this bad boi uses the same (or at least a very similar) skeleton as Valstrax ? With the seperated wings that can fold forwards and are movable independently ? Some of his attacks are also fairly similar: like the wing smash. Imo we might be seeing rocket boi later down the line

                    Tenderplates (2 needed for those incredible arm pieces) can be acquired by breaking its head. As far as I know it's the only way to get them, and it seems to be a pretty low chance (I'm 1 for 6).

                      LOL Try fighting against it and say that. Theyre nothing alike... and not at all a reskin of Odogaron. Go sober up... First form alone is badass and not a reskin either...

                        Ishvalda seems just a deformation of "Ishvala/Ishvara", a term in Hindu meaning "lord" or "god" Fitting name.
