Royal Ludroth Attack Patterns

Name Description
Water Bombs Royal Ludroth drops Water Bombs on its targets.
Wide Range Side Attacks Royal Ludroth uses its mane for offense rather than defense.

Water Bombs

Monster Hunter Rise - Royal Ludroth Water Bomb Attack.png
Royal Ludroth has two types of water bomb attacks. The first is a single water bomb shot, and the second is three shots of water bombs in different directions. These bombs inflict Waterblight on impact, which slows down stamina recovery.

Wide Range Side Attacks

Monster Hunter Rise - Royal Ludroth Side Attack.png
Royal Ludroth has attacks using his sponge-like mane, so it can have attacks where it will shove you with it from its side. This attack will most likely have a wide range since it is attacking from its side.

How to Beat Royal Ludroth

Stay Alert When Royal Ludroth is on Water

Monster Hunter Rise - Stay Alert When Royal Ludroth is on Water.png

Royal Ludroth's attacks are deadlier when it is standing on water! Always stay on your toes and be ready to dodge at a moment's notice whenever he runs towards bodies of water.

Focus on Royal Ludroth's Mane, Head, and Tail

Monster Hunter Rise - Focus on Mane Head and Tail.jpg

Most of Royal Ludroth's body is tough and can deflect attacks (especially when your weapon has yellow sharpness). In light of this, it is recommended that you focus your attacks on Royal Ludroth's Head, Mane, and Tail!

Breaking its Mane, in particular, can weaken its Water Bomb attacks. This is extremely useful because it reduces Royal Ludroth's deadliness whenever it's on water.

The tail on the other hand can be severed for an extra carve! It is important to note that you should focus your attacks on its gray tip as the rest of its tail can deflect attacks from weapons with yellow sharpness.

Use Meat Bait

Meat Bait is extremely useful to have against Royal Ludroth. This particular item serves as a pseudo-damage trap when placed in water, inflicting damage to Royal Ludroth when in range and possibly making it flinch in the process.

Consider bringing a few with you. Alternatively, you can always check your Supply Box at the Base Camp for any free Meat Bait inside!

Bring Nullberries

Royal Ludroth's Water Bombs inflict Waterblight on impact. We recommend you bring a few Nullberries with you during the hunt to negate this deadly effect!

      Each upgrade level adds 2 points to defense. Depending on rarity the armor will have different levels to max up to. Take the total levels minus one and multiply by 2 to get the total defense plus what the armor started with.
