      First time fighting him I thought he was easier than Banbaro, since i'm an Insect glaive user I felt the Viper version is pretty easy. Almost all his attacks are the same as regular Tobi but his poisoness blight is more annoying than lighting to me. Besides to make the fight easier and faster just find tigrex or maybe fulgur anjanath or maybe barioth.

        In all honesty, I found his fight much easier than regular Tobi-Kadachi for the first time. You basically know his moveset already, Poison Resistance 3 helps you not die and the Paralysis is just a bit annoying. I only had to keep my SOS-Party from constantly parting because they were seemingly unable to use a single potion. But in a bigger Party, the Paralysis just hits you and you lie and wait, no problem there.

          Of course I want to get poisoned with every tailswipe that makes up 80% of your moveset. I don’t mind running out of antidotes. No really... its fine...

            I am new to Iceborne, and I was able to prepare for this fight thanks to this wiki and the comments below. I recently got the Beo Beta Armor (which has Earplugs3--it helps with the roars), and I gemmed it for Poison Resist3, Paralysis Resist3, and Stun Resist 3. I still got hit a lot, but the fight was manageable. I hope this helps.

              I didn't faint once but it made me use most of my resources, I had hardly any potions, honey, herbs, antidotes, or medicine after the fight.

                  why does the article say that he "can" inflict poison and paralasys? is it just me or does he have a 100% chance to inflict those status efects?

                    I hate this bastard as a primary great sword user. I could barely get a hit in without getting hit with poison.

                      3 Antidote Dekos aparently dont work, still poisons. Maybe it got downgradet from deadly to toxic Poison? Immunity and Temporal makes him easyer. Bring Herbal Medicin against the Poison, after the Mantles run out.
