Velkhana is a Large Monster in Monster Hunter World (MHW). It was added with the Iceborne Expansion on Sept 6th 2019. イヴェルカーナ (Iverukāna) in Japanese.

 

An elder dragon with the power to freeze all in its path.
According to legend, it can control the cold, and use its freezing breath to conjure massive spires of ice out of nowhere.

 

Velkhana Combat Info

This icy new monster seems to be somewhere between a Rathalos and a Legiana, and is the main antagonist of the expansion, in the way that Nergigante was to the original launch.

  • Kinsect Extracts:
    • Red: Head/Tail
    • White: Wings/Forelegs
    • Orange: Hindlegs
  • Enraged mode: Velkhana will scream and rise into the air.
    • Velkhana will also use her ice beam attacks at shorter intervals
    • The Enraged mode is completely independent from its Ice-covered Form.
    • She is susceptible to double Slinger Burst into a wall, if fast enough (Slinger Capacity is recommended if you intend to use this tactic)
  • Ice-covered Form
    • Velkhana will cover its body in icicles. The icicles become its weak spots and can be broken off.
    • Velkhana will be extra aggressive when in this form.
    • It gains a variety of new ice attacks, such as using moisture in the air to create ice crystals that can fall on hunters, as well as summoning a cluster of ice that expands outward from the original targeted area. 
    • Its ice beam will create walls of ice that impede your movement.
    • Most ice beam and ice breath attacks now also summon clusters of ice that shoot out of the ground along the path of the attack, bursting shortly after, and dealing large damage as well as knocking the hunter back.
  • Tips and notes:
    • Iceproof Mantle can be extremely useful in this fight.
    • Velkhana's breath inflicts iceblight-severe-mhw-status-efect_sIceblight, which it will project long range and all around itself when in the air.
    • Instead of building up to 20 Ice resistance for Iceblight  immunity, the Resuscitate skill can be used to cancel the effect of Iceblight.
    • Keep in mind that its ice beam can not only shoot through its walls of ice, but occasionally the floor
    • While in the air, a Slinger Burst will generally knock Velkhana to the ground unless it is enraged.
    • While it's covered in its Ice-Armour, the parts of its body covered in ice become weak points, while the rest of its body becomes resistant to attacks.
      • It will also leave clouds of frost on the floor. These can be used to go into the sliding animation on flat terrain and perform a sliding attack
      • Breaking Velkhana's head or tail will sometimes stagger her out of her Ice-covered Form
      • When in Velkhana's Ice-covered Form, she will still have a functioning tail to attack with even after severing it off
    • The ice walls formed by Velkhana's attacks can be broken by attacking them
      • Torch Pods can also be used to melt the ice walls
      • After being broken/melted, the ice walls will leave behind a small platform of ice that you can climb on top of and jump off to perform aerial attacks
    • Velkhana's sweeping ice beam attack can actually be dodged by jumping off of a small ledge or platform, if timed right.
      • By timing the jump correctly, the hunter will hop over the ice beam as he jumps off of the ledge/platform.
      • The ice platforms left behind by its ice walls after being broken/melted can be used to perform this maneuver. 
  • All things considered, this is probably the hardest mandatory fight of Iceborne. If you saved your Potions and Drugs for the right moment, now is the time to use them.

      The biggest thing that won this fight for me was staying as close as I possibly could. I stood right underneath its belly so it can’t hit you with the ice spikes or its frozen laser beams of absolute destruction. It still was a difficult fight and I killed it with 2 minutes and no lives left, but staying near its belly is the biggest tip I have for people struggling to fight it

        Uhhh she is not docile during expeditions?? I literally found her in the ancient forest and she attacked me unprovoked

          I hated this fight all the way through, and the tail hitbox is awful along with the beam clipping. Beautiful design, but it was a long, painful fight. That being said, grappling on to her after finally getting a charged L3 attack to stick and getting the final blow with the hammer to her face was the most satisfying thing I've done in this game.
          That hit was crunchy.

            this thing is ****ing painful using lance weapons, its wings just out of reach of the stabs, the attacks are so fast youre forced to block and its stupid ice breath attack cant be dodged (expected for lance, youre meant to block, cant dodge) but also cant be blocked, so it basically always gets a free hit on you.
            Youre constantly busy blocking because it follows up its attacks so quick until it freezes and stabs you.
            Im sure I'll manage though, I've always managed to do it.

              When he does his unique Arch Tempered attack that makes radial ice walls appear distanced out and a few of them break his head takes massive damage from a leap attack while it's raised after the attack. Very important because the strict timer, will allow multiple mounts.

                Right... So I was fighting it solo with an Sns.
                I tried a blast build, a fire build and lastly I tried a dragon elderseal build but whatever I do I always end up running out of time.
                Also I never missed a wall bang and I don't care to it either...what am I missing?

                As a side note I don't use Safi, alatreon, kulve and I don't use fatalis weapons either.

                Are those weapons the key to Winning this fight?

                  I get zero f***ing openings with great sword ranged are much better and can guarantee trips if you keep hitting his head but man.. with gs? ib just ruined this weapon.

                    Its ice walls should block the ice beams WTF. They can implement that mechanic on Behemoth, why can't they do the same for Velk? I'm so tired of getting sniped from across the map when I can't even see it.

                      As a bow main, this fight sucks 'cause I can't see ****. It's all just ice walls and ice clouds. When zooming in to aim, even Khezu will be glad that it's blind.

                      Man, even AT Kush was less annoying than Velk. As cancerous as they are, at least AT Kush are rather easy to be stunlocked. Blast bow FTW.

                      But this swordsman wannabe, man. Learn to duel from Glavenus first, please.

                          What a fking shame, such good design and equipment but it's the worst elder dragon to fight with, not because of challenging but cheap as fk. It's bad enough that u can't guard its ice breathe(Lance user here) but it really loves to spam that as well as the the tail poke. Also the blast range in rage mode is dumb and can hits u when you're not even close. And with the stupidly long recovery animation the player does, it can easily combo u to death. I don't care if anyone think it's easy, this fight is just as bad as some of the deviant. It's hard because the dev was like "why the fk not, our game is fair, get gud u chump."

                                CB user, I make mincemeat out of Velk. Such an easy fight once you learn to read her signs. Wallbang and Savage Axe works wonders for breaking her parts down.

                                  She leaves little ice patches on the ground during the fight, hammers can charge and slide on these patches as if they were sliding down a slope.

                                    Insect Glaive main here. A tip for people having a hard time dodging the sweeping ice breath is to use an insect glaive as you can just pole vault jump over it ez pz. Flying attacks work pretty good when Velkhana is in the air too.

                                      If you're stuck on the last phase like I was, prep a bunch of mega barrel bombs and farcasters. Velkhana goes back to sleep every time you farcaster back to camp, so you get a bunch of free damage.
                                      It also looses enraged that way, so if you see a chance to wall bang it before you run away, its worth doing.
                                      Its not honourable or pretty, but it gets you through that phase so easily it feels unfair.

                                        Played around a bit and the only usefull piece for me as a SA user seems to be the layered armor.
                                        Any suggestions? Do I miss something?

                                        • Hello my fellow hunters, Mortals seem to be having trouble with this monster so I thought I could shed some light on some forbidden tips. Even though it says it is immune to stun, you can still do it 3 to 4 times. 3 Tigrex parts help because of free meal secret and Speed eating all in one go (You need to put on 2 free meal jewels) (The parts for speed eating and free meal secret are the boots, waist, and gloves.) Clutching to its face to dodge the beams is also a good move. If you are having trouble with his blights you can put on 3 restior jewels also put in mind that these are rare jewels and you can farm the greatest jagras for some but you don't have to. Brachdios weapons are also good for this fight since you can get that 300 blast damage numbers every now and then. Anyway my dads yelling at me to good to bed. So Farewell and good luck. (P.S please comment down below if your having any troubles and I will do my best to Help.)

                                            Pretty inconsistant, so I don't know exactly what does this, but if you are grappled to AT Vel and it does something that would normally knock you off, it puts you in a pin instead. Noticed that I have never just been knocked off, and a fresh Temporal just gets spent and I get pinned regardless. Didn't see it on the page. Could just be lost in the numerous details.

                                              AT Velkhana is really something. While almost everyone is still struggling with Fatalis. They might forget AT Velkhana all together. I guess the real challenge of the event is not Fatalis. But defeating him until you can decide to fight another monster.

                                                Surprised that AT velk isnt total trash, faster and a multitude of aoe but still actually has openings.

                                                Caveat is elderseal is mandatory, because capcom had to add a dumb gimmick to make it relevant for once in 3 years. Also they went out of their way to **** over ranged and HBG shield spread this time, therefore killing lance

The tempered version is actually trash at timesas she'll just make walls, and spam ice breath through them all the time at range, then spam the freezing puddle up close

Angle is good, clutch it's face, it wont shake you off if it's busy w a long breath attack. Ice resist gems, ice resist mantle. Learning to claw then, flinch shot,then ram him to a wall will help. Would recomend gobbler gems, max speed eating can let you heal very fast. Would recomend hit and roll away, esp if he rages, everything is faster and he may combo tail thrusts or ice breaths.

                                                                      • Anonymous

Elegant doesn't necessarily mean feminine, and just because an "a" is at the end of his name doesn't mean he's female. In other languages, though rare, some male names end in 'a'. Honestly though, this is all just speculation, believe what you want lads, imma stick with my opinion.
                                                                        Note: He is also my favorite monster

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            Why is the ice WALLS Velkhana creates acts as terrain for players, but you cant flinch shot her into it?

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              Velkhana's ice armor will consistently break (along with a prolonged trip animation) if you break the ice on 3 of the following: head, tail, wings, or body. The ice on the fourth part will break with the third, and it will have to start accumulating its ice all over again. Makes it easier to manage the fight if you can reliably do this, since its unarmored form is very predictable, and you can greatly decrease the time it spends in (or even entirely avoid) its second level of ice armor, which is where those giant ice crystals start falling everywhere.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

I spent all the time dodging, attacking, consuming little potions, and not dying, but the damage but still wasn't enough. Azure Rathian is more difficult. Barioth was ***** hard to me and I tried it like 3 times willingly. But this Boss doesn't want me to try another 50 minutes solo again...

Seems like Velkhana enrages anytime you rotate with grappling, smash into a wall, or stun. Was having a lot of trouble fighting until we realized this. The enrage happened much less frequently after I stopped trying to impact walls. Hope this helps someone.

I got the last hit with about 750 damage. I was esthatic. But the game crashed and deleted the whole battle from my save. I tried 2 more times and utterly failed. So I gave up.

I’ve run Investigations where I’ve hunted Velkhana in Hoarfrost Reach, Elders Recess, and Wildspire Wastes. I’ve also gotten Investigations for Velkhana Hunts in Coral Highlands, Ancient Forest, and even Rotting Vale (did not run those since meh rewards). These are from PC

                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

No use of armor, no special ice storm, just all of it’s normal ice attacks at once with maybe some range increase; but it benefits you to stay down if you’re hit! The other specials are terrifying, potential one-shots thats are great at invoking frenzy and evasion, but Velkhana, the FLAGSHIP, has a special that’s kinda just “Oh, it’s using the special. I got hit? Meh, Imma just stay down. And it’s over. Aight.” Yeesh... Compare that to Nergi’s dive bomb and you’ll see the issue.

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

Velkhana is not a pushover, it can basically wreck your hunt easily as not much can be done to get it down other than doing enough damage for a ko in midair and that's already a risk if you are still wearing armor that you stuck with for high rank all this time. (Unless you're one of those skilled few who actually managed to make it through master rank without changing builds at all) also flashpods work half the time you do flash it sometimes it goes down only for it to go back up and try to attack you whilest being blind. Velkhana often one shots any hunter below 500 defense with the most common death to velkhana is the ice blasts that she spams frequently.

                                                                                                                      • Anonymous

Velkhana is a very COOL Elder Dragon capable of coating itself in a icy shell like Zamtrios, however the way they CHILL themselves are most likely going to be different, as of now I do believe that you can fight this icy boi in the Iceborne Beta but I am not sure, haven't played this game in like a month, alright lets look at weaknesses. Weak points include but are not limited to the head... yeah that's all I know... Elemental weaknesses will likely include Fire and or Thunder and Aliment will include nothing... maybe Blast but eh... but that stuff doesn't matter when you have Elder Steal and maybe SAVAGE DEVILJHO WEAPONS!!! Weapons and armor have been leaked already, we know we have a Longsword, I can estimate the stats being something like 750 raw attack, 265 ice, white and maybe even purple sharpness, plus 10% affinity, and maybe even a level 3 slot or something, yeah i know estimating stats on a weapon we know nothing about is far fetched but I DO WHAT I WANT I CAN DREAM YOU KNOW!!! armor skills have already been leaked starting with something I already forgot... but anyways I didn't forget the Frostcraft ability as when your weapon is sheathed it builds a layer of frost around it and when you attack a monster, the ice acts as a projectile that can do some damage, to me it sounds like a skill to use with Critical Draw but be honest who uses that... Now as for the fight, he likes to use his tail a lot as a poking tool, he also likes to make ice walls that can act like a area limiter refraining your movement... And that's really about it you could just watch a video and it would do a better job explaining everything I said here... Welp... I'm going to sleep now... later...
