Charge Attack

MH Rise - Goss Harag
Goss Harag charges towards the target in an attempt to rake it with one of its powerful claws. If you manage to get out of its way and follow it, it will rest for quite a bit — Allowing you to land couple of attacks in.


MH Rise - Goss Harag
Goss Harag can even use its head as a weapon! This particular attack can knock players down and is usually followed-up by a Double Claw Swipe.


MH Rise - Goss Harag
Goss Harag jumps away from the target. This is immediately followed by a powerful two-handed slam that creates a fissure that travels back towards its target. Always keep your eyes on Goss Harag to avoid this deadly attack!

Claw Attacks

MH Rise - Goss Harag
Goss Harag's claws deal high damage and can easily knock its target down, leaving them exposed to deadly follow-up attacks. Fortunately, these attacks are relatively slow and easily dodged or blocked.

See all of the patterns of this particular attack below.


MH Rise - Goss Harag
Goss Harag uses its massive claws to rake the ground in front of it, dealing damage and knocking down anyone caught in the attack.

Double Sweep

MH Rise - Goss Harag
Goss Harag sweeps the ground around it with its massive claws. Goss Harag performs two sweeps at a staggered pace, with each sweep covering 180 degrees.

Double Claw Swipe

MH Rise - Goss Harag
Goss Harag raises both arms before swiping them towards the target. This is a relatively fast attack so always stay on your toes whenever you're directly in front of Goss Harag.

Ground and Pound

MH Rise - Goss Harag
Goss Harag pounds the ground with his fist twice in a row, so don't be fooled and over-commit once the first one is over. Hunter's hit by either attack will be knocked down hard and will need to use the wirebug to escape or suffer a possible follow up attack.

Take note that Goss Harag can leap towards the target for this particular attack depending on the distance between the two of them.

Ice Breath

MH Rise - Goss Harag
When enraged, Goss Harag can unleash two ice beams that inflict heavy damage and Iceblight from its mouth. The first beam is a vertical swipe starting from the bottom towards Goss Harag's target. The second beam is a lateral sweep in front of Goss Harag and has less range than the first.

It is surprisingly easy to dodge both beams. The key here is to keep moving until Goss Harag locks the first beam's position and wirebugging over the second beam afterward.

Lastly, It is important to note that Goss Harag usually conjures its Ice Weapons immediately after this attack.

Ice Weapons

Goss Harag can conjure ice weapons after performing its Ice Breath attack. These weapons degrade overtime and can take the following forms:

  • Single Sword (Low Rank Exclusive)
  • Double Sword
  • Sword & Ice Block

It is important to note that every attack with these weapons inflict high damage and Iceblight. However, the good news is that we can damage these weapons with our own to speed up the degradation process. Dealing enough damage may even cause them to break entirely!

Double Slam

Ice Shards

MH Rise - Goss Harag
Single Sword: ◯ Double Sword: ◯ Sword & Block: ◯
Goss Harag flings ice shards from its weapons, dealing damage from afar at the cost of its weapons' integrity.
This attack is fairly easy to evade as long as you time your dodge just before the shard is ejected from the weapon.

Full Release

MH Rise - Goss Harag
Single Sword: X Double Sword: ◯ Sword & Block: ◯
Goss Harag completely destroys its weapons, flinging an icy salvo of shards towards the target.
Be patient and stay on your toes whenever you're targetted with this attack. The final two shards take longer to eject than the previous ones and can easily throw your dodge timing off — Always keep this in mind.
