A mysterious elder dragon able to manipulate the earth itself. Vibrations from its wingtips reshape the earth, denying hunters footing.

Shara Ishvalda Details & Locations

 

Shara Ishvalda Combat Info

  • Kinsect Extracts:
    • Red: Head/Wings
    • Orange: Torso/Tail 
    • White: Legs 
  • Both stages can be mounted.
  • You can use your Clutch Claw to latch onto its head and knock it into the rocks traps(trap icons on mini map) to deal massive damage.
  • After it is freed, avoid being in front of it, and make good use of your Temporal Mantle, Health Booster or Vitality Mantle.
  • Bring Lifepowder or use the skill Wide-Range so you might heal your allies.
  • Stun Resistance is helpful during this fight.
  • You can obtain Shiny Drops by attacking and breaking its legs, head and chest.
  • Hunters must begin by stripping its sturdy rock armor: bombs and falling rocks are two proven methods. Skills to counter tremors are a boon against its wingtip attacks.
  • Armored form: Very slow, but immensely strong.
    • Be careful when standing underneath it, as it will occasionally jump to crush any hunters underfoot.
    • It will swipe at hunters with its wings, or use them as clubs to pound the ground.
    • It will sometimes burrow its body underground, exposing only its back, head, and wings. When this happens everyone should stay directly in front of it's face which is 90% safe from all its attacks in this mode.
    • It will also rake its wingtips from one side of the arena to the other, for 1 to 3 times. If you are up close attacking, and it starts to move backwards, it is about to use the "plow" move.
    • It can also create pools of sand around itself with its wingtips.
  • Unarmored form: Faster, and heavily relies on using its wings to attack with vibrated air.
    • It will continue to use its wings as melee weapons, along with the occasional bite.
    • It can shoot a single beam of air at a time, or multiple using all of its wingtips.
    • It can shoot a massive beam of air by centering its wingtips in front of its face.
    • Occasionally, it will burrow to the edge of the arena, create a large sphere of air, then launch it towards the center of the arena as a wide-scale AOE attack.
    • The pools of sand it creates resonate with it's sound/air attacks and explode after one of them touches it.

Easy Hunt

  • Make sure to eat at the canteen before going into this quest or Farcaster to do so.
  • For Shara Ishvalda's rock form, make sure to wall slam it twice into the falling wall trap. This can be easily set up by standing by it to lure Shara to it. You can also trigger the trap using bombs.
  • When Shara Ishvalda sheds its rock armor, you can stay on its rear, using clutch claw to weaken it. Just keep attacking the rear portion of its body and you should be very safe.
  • In the rockless state there will be 3 wall traps to slam Shara Ishvalda into, but if Shara Ishvalda triggers them (shoots with air) they will not deal damage to it. Again you can trigger these traps using bombs but make sure Shara is close enough.

Going for the Scalp

  • You need two Shara Ishvalda Tenderplates (and one gem) for every Shara-Ishvalda weapon, which are good for mid-tier Master Rank. Obtaining the Tenderplate can be difficult as it can't be carved from its corpse
  • Shara Ishvalda's head can be broken twice to get the Scalp to drop. Carving the Scalp will give you two Tenderplate
  • To avoid killing Shara Ishvalda before you get the Scalp to drop,you need to go for the head as much as possible
    • Partbreaker 3 is a must have, as it will decrease the overall damage you need to deal to the head
    • A Great Sword is a very good choice, as it has a long reach, high damage and a hidden Partbreaker bonus on the Charged Slashes. The Beo Slasher II is a good choice, as it will deal decent damage without charms or gems and is relatively easy to craft.
  • In Phase two (Closed Eyes), go for the head exclusively. If done right, you can get the scalp before phase three starts.
    • Tenderize the head as soon as possible with a grappled attack. Keep it tenderized at all times.
    • Shara Ishvalda leaves its head usually open after every attack. Put priority on avoiding its attacks by sprinting and go for draw attacks on the head. Avoid hitting anything else.
    • Some of its attacks will leave Shara Ishvalda's head unprotected for longer, letting you get a Strong Charge Slash in. Don't go for a True Charge Slash or Shara Ishvalda will hit you.
    • Using the slinger burst to slam Shara Ishvalda into a wall will count as damage to the head.
  • If Phase three (Eyes open) starts and you haven't broken the Head twice yet, go for the Front legs.
    • Breaking either one of the front legs will knock Shara Ishvalda down long enough to get a True Charge Slash on its head. Use this to finally break the scalp off.
  • Aiming to break Shara Ishvalda's head can result in a very drawn out fight.
    • Three pieces of Tigrex Armor allow you to stack three Free Meals, greatly increasing your healing supplies.
    • Carry a Farcaster to return to your camp if you ever run low on supplies.
    • Bring Dash Juice, as you will do a lot of sprinting.
    • Health Boost 3 is pretty good considering Shara Ishvalda's extreme damage output can easily twoshot you without it.
    • As soon as the scalp breaks, your first priority should be to carve it. Beam attacks are a great opportunity to go in for the carve.

Notes & Trivia

  • It is known as the "Earth Singing Dragon" or "Old Everwyrm".
  • It is the first large monster to have the "Switch Display" option in its Hunter's Notes entry.
    • It is the first monster to have an alternate form for its Physiology and Rewards pages.
  • When its eyes open, they track the camera instead of the hunter. The reason for this, as theorised by fans, is that Shara stares directly into the soul of a hunter, which is actually the player controlling the hunter, making this a fourth wall break. Also, when fighting it in multiplayer, every player perceives the eyes tracking them, disregarding anyone else.
  • Despite the Hunter's Notes not marking the wings as breakable in its unarmored form, they still are breakable; they're just harder to hit properly.

      So here is what I do to beat her. I usually use either the DB, LS, or GS. I think Rimeguard armor is a good choice along with either Velk or Legiana weapons. I would recommend Health boost lvl3 because she hits hard. Tremor resistance also helps. When it comes to actually fighting her I usually clutch onto her and soften the head. I then take the slinger ammo and wall slam her into the falling boulders. I think it does around 3600 damage. When she gets up she usually isn’t enraged so I just slam her into the boulder again. When she is toppled go for the head. After that she usually unarmors herself. If you are trying to get the scalp keep wall slamming her. If may end up a rage fight but you have a decent chance of getting the scalp. If not I would still recommend wall slamming her into the boulders for some high damage. I usually stay at her front legs because it is quicker. It is more dangerous though. If you want it to last longer but be safer I would suggest going underneath her. By the way it might be a him. I don’t know. It sounds like a her but I think Shara means lord. I thinks that’s all I have to say for now. Happy hunting and don’t give up!!!!

        weakness exploit 3, crit boost 3, damage up 5, divine blessing 3, constitution 5, stamina recovery 2, free meal, 730 defense and ice bow. took me around 30 minutes. First phase is probably one of the easiest fights in iceborne. dont be reckless though, the wing ground slam-punch attack can straight up one hit you. tenderize the face and lay into it. second phase... dont bother to much with trying to hit the wings (ranged weakspot) and just tenderize the face again and go for it (or legs/tail if you want to play it safe, you seemingly cant tenderize the wings. Atleast i couldnt latch onto them). most attacks can be avoided by staying at the left or right side of him. Watch for the sandpits, they can screw you over big time. In phase 3 you can mostly continue as phase 2, just be mindful that his ranged attacks now have a larger range of effect (he moves his "wing fingers" when shooting his high frequency beams). The "spirit bomb" can be avoided by standing the very edge of the arena or using the farcaster, which has the added bonus of allowing you to restock (which i would heavily recommend in doing, getting in cqc coating range is a bit dicey, i´d advice to go for evade window or atleast put on the evasion mantle). Overall the fight isnt to hard, velkhana is way worse imo. Ishvalda weapons arent bad for raw damage builds or if you have the unleash skill to unlock it´s dragon element (high elemental damage and elderseal).... armor skills are nothing to write home about though (except for the arms having crit boost). The set does have a lot of gem slots though. The set bonus is nice, but it only activates if you have a mantle on. Though that isnt surprising, MH story and endgame monster armors and weapons tended to be mainly a bragging right. There were easier obtainable and better alternatives.

          I recommend doing "The Naked Truth" event quest if you really need the scalp break as Shara has more health in this quest which gives you a better chance of getting the break before it dies. Yes Shara has a damage boost as well in this quest but if you are familiar with the attacks I say just put partbreaker in your build and focus the head and you'll get a scalp break, it's what I did to farm tenderplates and it worked well.

            I actually believed this thing was the fully-developed form of Xeno’Jiiva, until Safi came in and flame blasted my eyes open

              This was very easy I farmed for its armor and LS and was very easy. When it is in rock armor wall slam it in to the falling boulders. Then when it destroys its armor just keep wall slamming it. It may end end up being a rage fight but it it worth it

                with 2 or more hunters a good strat is to have someone fire him at a wall durring phases 2 / 3 and instanly have another person throw them so you get both sets of damage which i think is around 12k for both

                • Anonymous

                  DON'T fight this thing with the lance, or even worse, the gunlance. It's good in the rock phase but you'll get blasted (literally) in the next one.

                  If you're going to fight it with the lance anyway, stay on his tail as much as you can but do NOT block the big beam - the chip damage through the block will add up to more than what you would have taken anyway from getting hit, and your guard will break unless you're at +5 guard with dash juice. Instead either take the hit or use lance charge to either side to escape. You can still block the little lasers though and usually make it out ok

                      The Ballad of Shara Ishvalda

                      O great creature of earthen stone
                      Thy power far unknown
                      A Hunter rushes to his fate
                      To rid clean a land from your taint
                      A battle between dark and light
                      A fight of wit and might
                      One shall stand and one shall fall
                      Both shall inspire awe

                        Absolute anti-lance monster. Blocking his laser deals even more damage than getting directly hit.
                        Together with other ground-effect monsters which ignore blocking totally the designers of iceborne really killed Lance-classes and the tiny amount of players is easily understandable.

                          If your going for tenderscales / any part for weapons they changed the amount listed here so check in game first. The charge blade needs 6 though here it says 4

                            Whoever wrote down that if you carve the Scalp you have 50% chance to get a Gem is a liar. Plain and simple. I'm a GS user, i easily get the Scalp always... Are you telling me that i had 14x50% chance to get a Gem and i got one from 7 tries? 14x50%? Nope... Its just 5%. I even used a Ticket every damn time i could fight with Shara Ishvalda. Just delete that "50% from broken Scalp" part... Btw i really doubt that its 5% from the body too, considering the fact that i looted the body more than 42 times with Ticket(when i started i didn't know about the Scalp, so i killed Shara at least 8~9 times) and got 0, but whatever. """Fun""" fact is: i actually got another one at the exact same try as a reward. Obviously i only needed 1.

                            • When I was playing with my friend, She saw his wings/fingers and she was like, I want to be finger blasted by that thing, then I yeeted her into his super move.

                                I read the spoilers and I thought it was another pukei pukei variant the whole time. I was waiting to encounter it, but I was not disappointed. This studio has some good designers. This is some seriously inspired stuff here.

                                  Certainly not easy. Mirewalker skill helps with sand traps, start with blast and when it’s all cute with it’s eyes closed farcaster and switch for ice weapon. Part breaker is a must for the tender plate, but you can get by only breaking the head once. Do not give up. It’s really fun once you learn the boss

                                      Trash quest design... From the nergi to a 3 phase final boss? Nergis enrage hits hard, but is survivable.
                                      Then, boss design, starts slow, but its weak points in armored form are head and chest... which it uses its large size to smash you with (and... because its large this doesn't telegraph well). The slams are mostly avoidable. The armored phase is mostly just tedious busy work.
                                      Unarmored now you have issues with .... pools of sand slowing you, insanely wide sweeping hits, its weak points like the head.. aren't within hitting range for many/most attacks, you have to go for the forelegs where the wide sweep of one or TWO wings thrusting underneath. Then... sand pools explode, so if you're caught in them, you're slower, easier to hit even with telegraphed large attacks, and the boss stuns too.

                                      even the event vaal hazaak for bioweapon is far better designed (gear can mitigate zombie, or zombie isn't much of an invconvenience).

                                      all told this one quest makes you go through four phases with lots of hard hits, pack farcasters, you'll require them for the first time ever.

                                        A lot of people cart to this easily. Following the gear advice of this wiki is terrible. Tigrex for speed eating? Val Hazaak. Beo sword? Velk, barioth....etc better ice gear. You should have better armor for it. Add some armor jewel, health boost, armor meal,armor skin, you can tank two blasts easy, maybe three if you go that far.just at least enough so you aren't one shotted or somthing.

                                        Tip for head carvers, his head is high up, so besides slamming and ranged, you can wait for his laser to finish, he will lower his head for a bit right after, that's an opening for one hit, you can estimate where he lands. You can also try to spam clutch on his face with your friend, he will bite to shake you off, but the friend can smack his head while he does it. You won't take damage if you have temporal mantle.

                                                                One time I showed a friend of mine who doesn’t play Monster Hunter the intro cutscene of Shara Ishvalda. The first thing he said was; “whats with those giant arms?”. Then I said; “those are his wings”, and he was like; :o

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  This is the most boring monster so far. This thing is a massive damage sponge. It takes forever to kill it and it's not an enjoyable fight. I'll do it once just to progress and I hope I'll never have to do this again.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          I did around 20 runs to get that stupid armor, I got around 10 Gems but no Tenderplates. I have the feeling that this stupid Monster is laughing behind my back!

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            I think the official devs intended that but in the preview picture for shara armor set, male and female sets are paired with the other set, like in one picture its Alpha(M)+Beta(F) and in the other it's Beta(M)+Alpha(F). Not really a error though.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              So I went into this with tigrex armor (around 720 armor) and water db. Took around 10 mins for the golem phase, 20 for the 2nd phase. Not hard at all. Tips: On 2nd phase, once she goes underground ala diablos style, FOLLOW her. Get behind her and you'll never have trouble with her world ending beam. keep hitting her front paws and watch out for the wing underswipe attack. (Really telegraphed). Other than that, just stick to her paws and this fight is no sweat. The Nergi fight before her was harder. Idk what all the salt is about lol.

                                                                              • Opinion of this fight tends to divide based on whether you main melee or ranged: if you're ranged you'll likely wonder what everyone is so mad about, and if you're melee you'll probably see this fight as a giant middle finger pointed directly at you and any enjoyment you got out of the game. Personally I found this fight to be a chore: not so much challenging or interesting as it was long and frustrating. Advice? I dunno, just make sure you have above 800 total armor so you can survive a hit from the Kamehameha beam, prioritize stun immunity/sheathe/superman dive, throw in gobble if you've got the space since it'll help you heal quickly, and use Farcaster as your reset button. Shara has less health than you think, so don't feel the need to go through the entire combo before dodging again.

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  How is it possible for it to hit me while clutched to it's head with it's "beam attack" or even a "claw swipe" on the opposite side of its body? Trying to weaken/break its head, and it's not hard even that hard to kill, but farming gems and tenderplates is frustrating. What a garbage designed boss...

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    An extremely easy boss for the climax of the game. My recommendation is use 3 steadfast jewels. Not getting stunned will make the fight smooth. His spirit bomb can be easily dodged by running the the edge of the area or just farcastering out.

                                                                                    • Not the hardest fight in the game by far, but definitely the worst. Having a huge monster turn on a dime and constantly spam an instant activation one hit KO move over and over and over again is just objectively poor design and artificially difficult rather than fair and fun difficult. Idk how anybody can really argue that it's not. The "git gud," assholes of the world are really missing the point. One can overcome a challenge and also think the challenge was poorly designed and unfun, which this absolutely is. I failed the double rajang event quest several times and didn't get salty at all, because Rajang is a beautifully designed monster with a fun and fair moveset even though he's balls hard, but failing this even once is very annoying because this monster is garbage tier levels of design. It's the kind of hard like a mario rom hack asshole would be about, I.E. the wrong kind of hard.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        Honestly I agree. Not the hardest fight at all, but the worst designed. Nothing about it is fun, and having a giant monster that turns on a dime and spams a one hit KO move over and over that comes out faster than your react is just not good design. People defending are just wrong, imo. Git gud is not a defense for poor design. You can overcome a challenge and also think the challenge was bullshit, which this one is. I'd rather fight Rajang any day, even though he carts me more often.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

I usually always try to break its head asap, but sometimes other hunters aren't so quick to do so, and it sometimes doesn't end well...

Sorry, i would say is a *****ing boring chore as a final boss, it has too much *****ing health and can only be killed if you spam clutch claw attacks non-stop, it's ridiculously unfun to fight and it's *****ing ugly too.
