How to Emergency Evade

What is Emergency Evade?

Emergency Evade is a special type of evasion that has a very long invincibility time. This allows you to evade some devastating moves like Magnamalo's divebomb or Mizutsune's Water Breath attack.

To execute an emergency evade, make sure that you are dashing away from the monster and press B!

Very Long Invincibility Time

The invincibility time for the emergency evade is from the time you press B until your hunter stands up! This makes it extremely effective against unavoidable and deadly monster attacks.

How to Frame Dodge

What is iFrame?

The iFrame can be described as a very short invincibility frame that hunters can use to avoid attacks using the basic roll (pressing B). The invincibility frame (or iFrame) is often found at the start of every roll. If you activate the Evade Window skill, your iFrames will extend.

Roll Just In Time For Attacks

You can use iFrames to effectively evade monster attacks. Veterans do this all the time coupled with monster knowledge and a deep understanding of the game.

Do not be discouraged if you cannot execute this move from the start! Practice makes perfect so try honing your Frame Dodge skills!

Frame Dodge Only Works When Some Weapons are Sheathed

Since the evasion behavior for some of these weapons is different (eg. dash evade rather than roll evade), it is recommended to execute iFrame Evade only when the weapons are sheathed.

Unless you have the Evade Window skill, you are going to have a hard time evading some monster attacks.

iFrames at the Start of Rolls

iFrame exists from pressing the B button until the hunter's head touches the ground. This is an effective way to time your Frame Dodge against a monster attack.

Roll Towards the Monster Attack!

It is suggested that you roll towards a monster to better time your Frame Dodge properly. This is a very risky move as iFrames are very short and you can easily miscalculate.

Always decide properly if you can Frame Dodge a monster or just evade away.

Know and Learn the Monster's Moves Patterns

Along with the two tips above, you have to know and learn monster move patterns. This effectively gives you the knowledge to know if the attack can be Frame Dodge or not!
