Shrieking Legiana is a Large Monster in Monster Hunter World (MHW). 凍て刺すレイギエナ (Itesasu Reigiena) in Japanese. It was added with the Iceborne Expansion on Sept 6th 2019. It is a variant of Legiana.


A Legiana variant shrouded in white frost. It specializes in freezing prey with the powerful chill it emits, 
then swooping down to strike at them from overhead."

Shrieking Legiana Details & Locations


Shrieking Legiana Combat Info

  • Kinsect Extracts:
    • Red: Head
    • Orange: Chest/Legs
    • White: Wings
    • Green: Tail
  • Shrieking Legiana tends to roar even more than regular Legiana, making Earplugs a good skill to counter it.
  • Shrieking Legiana will inflict Iceblight very easily, making you burn through your Nullberries fast. Blight Resistance might be useful.
  • As with most Master Rank Flying Wyverns, using Slinger Burst on Shrieking Legiana will work better than flashing it.
  • If another Legiana is on the Map, Shrieking Legiana will let out a unique, deeper roar that summons the other Legiana to its position. Taking them on at the same time is not advised. Either run away and hide until they separate or lure them towards a Barioth. One of the Legianas will have a Turf war with Barioth and fly to another zone afterwards.

      if you are stuck on this monster i will give tips
      so break his head if you want to weaken his roar if you have earplugs then go for the wings and tail that will slow him down if you break all the parts ( not including the head ) it will give you time to set a trap where he sleeps and when he is in the trap you can go for the head by the time he gets out of the trap his head will be broken he will be knocked over and whenever you knock him over go for the belly if he takes to much damage to his belly his ice attacks will weaken ( if you are a gs user like me then you can block his roar if you have a level 10 or higher gs so go for the wings and tail first and if you are a anything else user that cant block then go for the head first ) - smart guy

        I got really lucky on this fight. I only encountered one legiana and dung podded it away. Then, it left the locale and it didn't bother me again. After that, the fight was smooth sailing, first try.

          A solo will nearly time you out 49 minutes to solo, with a side of every monster jumping you, bring evasion +4

            Best way to explain this fight.

            Loud Annoying E-Girl calling her Simp to white knight for her constantly every time you so much as look at her.

              Not hard, but very cheap, like most of the new monsters. Also there's a basic Legiana that always seems to get in the way...

                  Whoever designed the moveset of this abomination definitely has a special place in hell. Finished mine on 18mins solo but jesus christ that fight is so painful I'd never do that crap again.

                    Note to Anyone Fighting This for It's Armor: Bring Dung Pods cause if There's a Legiana Around It'll Back It Up the Entire Time and It is Awful to Deal with.

                      (This is just a quick speculation and review upon what we know about this monster, so if you like this stuff then that's cool). Well so far... we know jack squat about this, subspecies? I suppose it is the best thing to call it for now, as for now then let's just review what we know, which is not much. The Shrieking Legiana seems to be a stronger version of the original Legiana that has been buffed by Velkhana in some way, now again we know just about nothing on this monster, so here are some of my theories on it. As we all know there will be a new armor set and upgraded weapons that will require his materials, now so far we only know of one new weapon in which that would be the Sword and Shield weapon, the Legia Rimespire as if you look closely at the Glavenus Trailer when the hunter is fighting the new Ebony Odogaron she seemed to be using some sort of version of the Legia Rimespire, however I am not positive on this so I may be mistaken. As for the power of this monster... man I have no idea as the normal Legiana seems to be on that tier of monsters like Rathalos, Diablos, and yes even Odogaron, however with the new buff it has received, my guess would be on the lines on Deviljho maybe, but I have no clue. Until more information is out I shall end this here, if there is anything I missed then just say something on this comment. Other then that I hope y'all are as hyped for Iceborne as I am and until further notice I'll see y'all later. (btw I also did a thing on Fulgur Anjanath and next I will do Ebony Odogaron so look out for that... just thought I'd mention that...)
