How to Make Large Monsters Sleep

Use sleep weapons

Somnacanth DB

Equipping weapons with sleep status ailments is the most basic method to inflict sleep against Large enemy monsters. Just keep hitting them until the sleep ailment affects them. There's a hidden stat that slowly fills up everytime you hit a monster with a sleep weapon and once the value reaches the monster's resistance, it will fall asleep.

Equip Sleep Weapons to your Buddies

Not only is the sleep weapon available to hunters, it can also be done by your buddies! Simple have your buddy equip some sleep weapons too and see the magic happen! Dual Blades, Bows, and Sword and Shields are particulalry effective weapons to inflicting ailments against monsters!

Use Drugged Meat

Drugged Meat is an item that you can leave on the ground during hunts. Monsters that eat the meat will fall asleep but they will only do so when fatigued and unalarmed. The effort and conditions required to use Drugged Meat makes it difficult to use so it is not a popular strategy for hunting.

Make the monster reach critical HP

Enemies that takes enough damage will try to rest. Most monsters that are on critical HP will look for a safe place to rest. While resting, their HP quickly recovers so it is necessary to track the monster as soon as you can to finish the hunt or capture it for better loots!

How to Capture Monsters and Benefits

Use the Great Baggi's finisher move

The Great Baggi's finisher move is its breath attack. Its Breath Attack can inflict sleep so do consider bringing Bombs when a Great Baggi is in the area for some burst damage!

      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
