      If you're wondering how to upgrade the weapons from r11 to r12 you need to get materials from the tempered stygian zinogre that spawns in the hoarfrost region on level 7

        Does Stygian Zinogre destroy your armor? I heard from a friend who played the older games that it destroyed armor after each hit. Is this true?

          I don't know myself, but is Stygian Zinogre generally an invader? I know they generally like colder environments, but do they also wander into other locales I ask because from what I could tell of where we saw it fight int he trailer, we may get a Hoarfrost zone for Guiding Lands, where he would likely be the level 4 or 6 monster. But if he's an Invader, he would show up in other zones that are levelled like Rajang did when he was introduced.
