Tigrex Details & Locations


Tigrex Combat Info

Returning Flying Wyvern characterized by its powerful attacks, this monster takes the role of a powerful predator, overpowering its prey with absolute power.

  • Kinsect Extract:
    • Red: Head.
    • Orange: Body/Hindlegs.
    • White: Wings.
    • Green: Tail
  • Enraged mode: Eyes and forefeet glow red. Will jump back, and then roar.
    • 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.

      He was very intimidating when he killed the Radobaan in the intro but seeing 2X bigger in the event quest was soooo scary when he charged. BUT he does low damage in the event quest and honestly maybe lower than normal tigrex.

          Stamina Thief counters this thing, once it gets tired all it’s movement becomes really slow, with a high chance of it slipping after it’s bulldozer rush as well. Proceed to place down Tinged Meat for it to eat and do some free damage, rinse and repeat

            For those struggling, trap spam works well. Rotten Vale map is quite small so you can farcaster back to base get more traps and keep the thing locked down.

              Tigrex has more Ailments than ice and water, it applies fireblight in the enlder recess and the effluvia debuff in the rotten vale

                  This monster is just not fun to fight against. It deals way to much damage to have an attack with a tracking, lingering hitbox and whoever thought it would be a good idea to give it a ranged attack is beyond evil.

                    It would seem he can also apply Effluvia with the ground chunks projectile when fighting him in the Rotten Vale... So I guess that's one more thing that makes him annoying as f*** to fight XD

                      Its spin is more stupid than behemoths. You arent save underneath the monster. You aren't save above it. You aren't save 20 meters away from it. What an annoying piece of*****

                        All you mai ly need is the trusty vitality mantle and the one mantle used to dodge strong attacks since most of his attacks are powerful. In between charges just hit him IF you can

                          This things moves are easy to dodge and he is easy to deal damage to. But what’s annoying is that if his feet slightly brush past you, you get one shot and it’s his main attack, so in my opinion this fight isn’t hard or fun it’s just annoying
