Thunder Serpent Narwa
|Threat Level||10/10||Rampage Type||ー|
|Major Weakness||Other Weakness|
|Blight / Elemental Damage||Abnormal Status||ー|
|An elder dragon and Wind Serpent Ibushi's "queen." Its thundersacs glow with accumulated electrical charge; it is thought that these organs therefore generate the powerful magnetic field that lifts the creature and anything around it high into the air.|
Bold are the recommended Weapon Type and Elemental Damage.
|Tail Tip (Charged)||70||65||35|
|Tail Tip (Charged)||0||0||0||5||15|
Higher numbers indicate higher potential damage to the monster.
Attacking its thundersacs that have stored energy will cause them to discharge, grounding the beast. Those on its underside are its weakest, provided you can time an attack for when they aren't blocked by its fins. If you're crafty, you can even use the levitating terrain to your advantage.
Status Effect Vulnerabilities
If an ailment has more stars it means that it has better effectiveness.

The trick to knocking Narwa down is making sure you deal as much damage as possible — whenever possible! You don't necessarily have to use Hammers and Hunting Horns to knock this monster down. As long as you deal enough damage, it will drop and give you ample windows to dish out all of your heavy attacks.
Several times through the encounter Narwa will raise several stone platforms. Some of these platforms will hold Ballistae, Cannons, or Machine Cannons.
The platforms will only be up for a short time but deal tons of damage to Narwa. Doing enough damage with the artillery can stun Narwa allowing you to attack its weak points directly
Narwa's thundersac eminates a greenish glow after performing specific attacks. This signifies that the hits towards the thundersac deal increased damage — Use this to your advantage to finish the hunt as fast as possible!
The start of Narwa's Divine Ire leaves her exposed to a maximum of four cannons in specific platforms around the area. Use these to your advantage and knock Narwa out of the sky to prevent her ultimate attack!
The wall of rock beneath the Coral Palace is equipped with a huge Dragonator that will deal heavy damage. The range is long enough to reach Narwa if its in the center of the of the field.
The Coral Palace field also comes equipped with a Spitting Wyvernshot just like in Rampage Quests. You can either use as soon as possible to deal massive damage or save it for when she starts channeling her Divine Ire.
Thunder Serpent Narwa uses the following attacks in Low and High Rank quests.
|Lightning Coils||Blast small slow-moviing cicular halos to target. These attacks deal high damage and inflict thunderblight.|
|Tail Attacks||Uses massive tail to deal high amount of damage.|
|Thunder Cannon||Unleashes large beams that deal incredibly high damage. Causes thunderblight.|
|Thundersac Beams||Fires multiple beams from its Thundersac that will spread out in a wide cone. Causes thunderblight.|
Divine Light Show
|Unleashes a flurry of Lightning Coils and Spires that go through platforms.|
|Homing Bolts||Send bolts that track the targetted hunter.|
|Electrifies the air towards target which eventually combusts in a cascade of thunder blasts.|
|Dragon's Maw||Uses her massive maw to perform a lunging bite towards any hunter near her.|
|Dragon's Corkscrew||Corkscrews in the air, knocking anyone down in her path.|
|A charged attack that unleashes a high-damage combo of a beam attack and a bomb attack similar to a wyvern blast.|
Narwa can conjure lightning coils in a variety of attacks and patterns. These attacks deal high damage and inflict Thunderblight — Bring Nulberries and dodge these deadly rings as much as possible!
|Lightning Coils Variations|
Single Coiled Fist: Narwa gathers energy in one of her fists. After a few seconds, she releases this energy in the form of a coil that travels and expands towards her target.
Double Coiled Fists: Narwa charges both fists and releases the coils towards the target at a staggered pace.
Furious Fist Pumps: Narwa performs three quick double fist pumps towards the target, with each double fist pump unleashing a flurry of coils.
Tri-Spark Combo: Narwa follows-up her Double Coiled Fists with a Coiled Thunder Bomb towards her target.
Charged Piledriver: Narwa drives her charged fists towards the ground, unleashing a grounded Lightning Coil that slowly traverses a large distance. Use the elevated platforms or vault over the coil using a Wirebug to easily evade this attack.
Imploding Coil: Narwa releases an already-expanded coil from her maw. This particular coil shrinks towards the target and eventually implodes once it reaches its destination.
Coiled Burst: Narwa conjures six lightning balls in front of it. These balls transform into expanding lightning coils as soon as she runs a Thunder Bomb past them towards her target. This is fairly easy to avoid as long as you maintain enough distance from Narwa and avoid her Thunder Bomb.
Triple Coil Slam: Narwa plants her arms in the ground, summoning three massive lightning coils on top of her — Each larger than the last. Once her arms leave the ground, these coils begin to fall starting from the innermost one.
Pay attention to the radius of each coil to easily dodge away from them.
Narwa can use her massive tail to deal high damage to her targets.
|Tail Attack Variations|
Diagonal Tail Swipe: Narwa sweeps her tail from one of her sides all the way forward in a diagonal fashion. This pattern is very easy to dodge as long as you have a wirebug with you at all times.
Charged Tail Slam: Narwa chooses her target and charges her tail for a massive tail slam afterward. This attack plants her tail and exposed her charged thundersac for a few seconds. Take advantage of this window of opportunity by dishing out heavy attacks towards these parts!
Narwa can use her massive maw to unleash large beams that deal incredibly high damage in a very large area and inflict Thunderblight.
|Thunder Cannon Variations|
Thunder Cannon Uppercut: Narwa starts her thunder cannon underneath her. She will then flick the beam upward in a straight line towards her target, leaving Spark Blasts in its wake.
Sweeping Thunder Cannon: Narwa positions her maw close to the ground and unleashes a massive beam of lightning that sweeps from one side to the other. Use the platforms for cover or vault over the beam with a Wirebug.
Thunder Bomb: Narwa unleashes a massive ball of lightning from her massive maw towards her target. This lightning ball explodes once it reaches its destination so stay clear of it as much as possible!
Coiled Thunder Bomb: Narwa shoots an expanding coil from her maw with a Thunder Bomb at the center, preventing hunters from using the opening at the center.
Narwa fires multiple beams from its Thundersac that will spread out in a wide cone, similar to Rakna-Kadaki's web spray but inflicts Thunderblight instead.
|Thundersac Beams Variations|
Fanned Thundersac Beams: Narwa maintains her upside-down stance and unleashes a set of lightning beams from her Thundersac. These beams fan out as they travel outward so maintain distance until visible gaps from between them.
It is important to note that a second set of beams immediately follows the first that covers the gaps when Narwa is enraged.
Thundersac Disco Ball: Narwa curls up into a ball, unleashing lightning beams from her thundersac while she rotates. Use the elevated platforms to shield yourself from this attack.
It is important to note that Narwa unleashes Lightning Coils during this attack when enraged.
Narwa unleashes a flurry of Lightning Coils and Spires that go through platforms. It is important to note that some platforms have installations on them, use these to deal damage while Narwa channels her attack.
|Divine Light Show Variations|
Grounded Light Show: Narwa elevates multiple platforms and drives her fist into the ground, unleashing a flurry of Coils and Spires that travel a large distance.
Aerial Light Show: This variation is nearly identical to the Grounded version, only it is performed while Narwa is mid-air and the platforms are higher.
|Homing Bolts Attack Information|
Homing Bolts: Narwa sends multiple lightning bolts towards her target. These bolts track the targeted hunter so stay on the move or stand underneath an elevated platform!
|Spark Blasts Attack Information|
Spark Blasts: Narwa electrifies the air towards her target which eventually combusts in a cascade of thunder blasts. This is a very quick attack that can instantly stun you if you catch at least one blast — Keep an eye out for the electrified sections and wirebug away immediately!
|Dragon's Maw Attack Information|
Dragon's Maw: Narwa uses her massive maw to perform a lunging bite towards any hunter in front of her. This deals high damage and can knock you back so always be mindful of this attack whenever Narwa suddenly repositions mid-air.
Narwa corkscrews in the air, travelling a great distance and potentially knocking anyone down in her path.
|Dragon's Corkscrew Variations|
Uncharged Corkscrew: Narwa does a regular aerial corkscrew, similar to Ibushi's version.
Charged Corkscrew: Narwa unleashes massive Lightning Coils as she spins towards her destination. These coils have fairly huge gaps between them and can be easily dodged.
Narwa coils up in the center of the area, spawning high platforms with cannons on them. Once she finishes her charge, Narwa will proceed with her two-step ultimate combo that can easily knock hunters out. See the full breakdown of her ultimate below.
|Narwa Divine Ire Attack Combo|
First Attack: Supercharged Thunder Cannon:
Narwa flies even higher to unleash a massive supercharged version of her Thunder Cannon. This attack can easily KO hunters in one hit so make sure you are standing underneath an elevated platform at all times during this attack.
Final Attack: Supercharged Thunder Bomb:
Narwa unearths another set of platforms immediately after her Supercharged Thunder Cannon. She will then supercharge a massive lightning ball in her maw before releasing it towards the ground. This lightning ball unleashes a supercharged lightning coil that instantly KOs hunters caught in the attack.
Make sure you are standing on top of an elevated platform before the lightning ball reaches the ground!
