- The roar it uses that shows it entering enraged mode deals damage and pushes back, but has less range than a classic roar.
Tigrex has a variety of moves, but the one you will see most often is the charge.
Tigrex simply barrels forward, After it completes a charge, it may turn and charge you again.
While calm, it will charge up to four times, ending in a finisher.
While enraged, it may charge up to four times, ending in a finisher.
As a finisher, Tigrex can perform either a bite or spin attack
To best avoid the charge, run away perpendicular to Tigrex's charge. While Tigrex is turning, try to gain some distance from it and then repeat.
When its slowing down, either run away or get ready to dodge the finisher.
You may also Flash Pod Tigrex out of the charge, but their effectiveness will decrease with each consecutive use.
Baiting Tigrex to charge into the ice pillars in the hoarfrost reach or the rock pillars in the Wildspire waste will result in it getting stuck, providing a short damage opportunity. Watch out though as the pillar will shatter once Tigrex breaks free, potentially flinching you.
- Stamina thief is a good skill for this fight because Tigrex tires easily
