      When I first saw this thing I thought OH COME ON NOT YOU!! (I played Mhfu) but he was surprisingly very easy. Or at least compared to mhfu. I still never fought the thing again. To many painful memories from him…

        There’s another mission they appear in called “I am tranquil, I am sound” or something close to that.

          He's like the really ****ty parts of other ****ty monsters rolled into one, why waste a spot on him when there are unique and interesting monsters they could of added

            By the time you can encounter Yian Garuga it is honestly laughable. By far the easiest of the post launch monsters but if you are struggling go in for the tail cut early as it will take away the poison and also weaken quite a few of its attacks.

              He was hard the first time a met him with the poison back flips and everything but once you cut of that tail it will be so much more easier. He doesn't to poison anymore and his range has shortened! So I suggest to for the tail until you cut it off.

                I finished furious rajang, I finished raging Brachy, and still haven't got his quest! I was so excited when the tracker gave me the special asiggnment but I thought that was for Yian Garuga but it was of stygian which don't get me wrong he is a very cool variant of zinogre but I really want to fight him. I also heard he can hold his own against devilijho which got me excited

                  I love this thing it looks cool. Good weapons and armor (especially the long sword) and is weak to blast giving that element a use again. Just get your ragging brachydios or regular brachydios weapons ready to kill him. Thats all i can say or

                    just check nearly all the weapon designs (even in prev ver.), if they did limit the weapons, why would stay at the bone/ore treatment, but its a great that they kind of added the layered edition.

                      Basically rathalos and rathian, but is armored, way fasyer, uses his head like a stupid, and is way more annoying

                        Not sure wtf is going on with this monster, but apparently max guard and guard up do nothing and he can just one-shot you whenever he so pleases.
