Xeno'jiiva Details & Locations

 

Xeno'jiiva Combat Info

  • Xeno'jiiva's Element Weakness is the same against every type of Element (Fire, Water, Thunder, Ice, and Dragon), ⭐⭐ each.
  • Weaknesses: Xeno'jiiva is very weak to mhw-poison-status-effectpoison with ⭐⭐⭐.
  • Combat tactics: Be very careful. As soon as it is in rage mode, its stomp becomes lethal once up close, since it adds an explosion after the initial stomp. Usually, when it isn't raging, the stomp is a good time to damage its feet, although its best to stay away from its front feet when it is in rage mode since anyone fighting with a close-range weapon will take heavy damage. 
  • Xeno'jiva will fire three kinds of projectiles while grounded. The first will be three projectiles first firing middle then 45 degrees to the right then 45 degrees from center to the left. Its second is a 180-degree beam that is fired from its mouth covering the entire distance of the map. The third is just a straight beam that is fired directly in front of it (This is a very good time to do heavy damage near the side of its face and claws.) 
  • When Xeno'jiiva takes to the sky, it is best to shoot it down quickly with any slinger ammo you find ( they drop on the ground). Xeno'jiiva can perform long-range projectile attacks and a diving claw attack that causes dragon explosions in its wake. 
  • Resistances: Xeno'jiva can't be put to sleep and resists stun and paralysis pretty well. Flash pods are also ineffective.
  • The head and tail are the weakest areas, followed by the chest. All of them can be broken.
  • Xeno'jiva is the only Elder Dragon apart from Zorah Magdaros that cannot be mounted.
  • Xeno'jiva beams will heat up the ground beneath it. A way to combat this is with Uragaan armour or the Fireproof Mantle, as they will protect you from Burning.

Notes & Trivia

  • Can't be lured
  • Camouflage works until ?? range
  • Xeno'jiiva is known as the "Dark Light Dragon"
  • Xeno'jiiva has been nicknamed by the community as the "Sapphire Star," as it is strongly implied that it arrived to the new world via the same meteor mentioned in The Tale of the Five.
    • The meteor in that story is seen as a symbol of hope (hence, "may the Sapphire Star guide your way"). This is ironic, since nobody knew it contained an extremely powerful and dangerous dragon (that is, until the player fights it themself).
  • Xeno'jiiva's name has Greek, Hindu and Jain origins.
    • "Xeno" is Greek for "Alien".
      • It is implied that Xeno'jiiva came from another world via the Sapphire Star meteor, and its biology is described as "alien" by researchers.
    • In Hinduism and Jainism, a "jiva" (Sanskrit: जीव, jīva, alternative spelling jiwa; Hindi: जीव, jīv, alternative spelling jeev) is a living being, or any entity imbued with a life force.
      • Likewise, Xeno'jiiva developed from the life energy of dying elder dragons.
    • In Jainism, "jiva" is the immortal essence or soul of a living organism (human, animal, plant, etc.) which survives physical death.
      • This could explain why Xeno'jiiva comes back to life after being slain, so that the player can hunt it again.
        • A far more likely explanation is that being able to rehunt it is simply a game mechanic, like Behemoth and Leshen, and nearly every Elder Dragon in previous installments.
      • It is theorized by fans that if Xeno'jiiva was left to incubate, it could become an unstoppable, godlike being.

      So, I've seen a lot of posts about the armor and determined that it's either the best armor in the base game... Or absolute garbage... Regardless, why don't we compile a list of pros and cons for it, keep it civil, and no fighting.

        It just will not die, I figured out its weaknesses times to bash it etc and spent fifty five minutes whacking it with a decently high tier gunlance. It Just Did Not Die. I did not find it to be a difficult fight, but my god it just refuses to eat the dirt for me

          this dude likes f***ing with you mentally, especially if you use the greatsword. it sits there for a few seconds and gives you the impression "hey I'm vulnerable! hit me!" you hit it ONCE and then it spider crawls away and ruins your framerate with that horrid laserbeam. but then again that's some great lookin armor so it makes the whole fight worth it... until you have you fight it again because you don't have the mats for the rest of the gear. 10/10 would spend an hour fighting again

            try using insect glaive for the first time at this boy (some people said it works on him pretty well) he got to hit me only a few times and when he hit me I just go extract his tail for free heal although I need run around from his head front legs and back legs to rebuff

              I'm a hammer main on my way doing this dude's quest thought I'm well prepared just keep hammering his feets and it took me 36 min OTL his hp pool is maybe 2 times larger than other elder dragons and he keep charging( changing his position ) or flying and I can't seem to find any pods around him lol also there's barely any environments at all just one ledge on the first fighting area and a few

                This dude was... Interesting. Every time I've fought him (... Like 3 times...) I killed him just after the '10 minutes remaining' message. Definitely time consuming, but kind of fun. He is a bit underwhelming though, you learn the moves and you've basically won. Best design though, he looks incredible! Also, would you say his armour and weapons are worth it? (mainly glaive and light bowgun)

                  How has no one commented that it is an obvious combination of the Ur Dragon and Daemon from Dragon's Dogma?

                    Think about it: This creature just hatched and it can already fly and fire lasers outta its mouth. If your character fail to slay it and it got away, lil' Timmy here will mature into a world-ender. By comparison, when I came out of my mother's womb, I can only do 1+1=2. So weak man
