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. The easiest solution is to fire a dung pod at one of them. If you don't have any dung pods with you, 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.

      Here's a cool thing I noticed. In the mission where you fight two Legiana (one base and one shrieking), the shrieking Legiana will make a horrific noise in your ambiance, to show that it's coming when you attack its friend. It doesn't matter how far away it is.

        Solo most IB contents with this annoying monster as few exceptions. More annoying than challenging. Also not a fun fight in my opinion.

              This is easily one of the LEAST fun monsters to fight, especially as long sword. No matter if it's in the air or on the ground, it manages to stay just outside of the range of all your attacks, and somehow always manages to scream at you just as you're about to roundslash. I understand some monsters should be more difficult matchups for some weapons, but one being a damn-near perfect counter while also being required for the story is a terrible design choice.

                god i don't know if its intended but EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. i fight this thing a normal legiana appears and screws everything up

                  First time i fought it without Blight res 3 god that was hell went trough a good 5 nullberries.

                  Though HP wise its not too tanky if you can constantly attack it (Insect Glaive :P) Kadachi Fury II pretty much melted it.

                        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...
