Thunder Serpent Narwa Hunting Tips

MH Rise - Narwa Artillery Phase

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.

How to Beat Thunder Serpent Narwa

Maintain the Offensive

MH Rise - Narwa KO
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.

Use the Artillery

MH Rise - Thunder Serpent Narwa Artillery Phase
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

Focus on Narwa's Charged Thundersac Whenever Possible!

MH Rise - Focus on Narwa
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!

Stun Narwa While She Charges Her Divine Ire

MH Rise - Thunder Serpent Narwa Cannon Phase
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!

Use The Dragonator

MH Rise - Use the Dragonator against Narwa
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.

Use the Splitting Wyvernshot

MH Rise - Use the Splitting Wyvernshot When It Becomes Available
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.

Tail Attacks Uses massive tail to deal high amount of damage.
Thunder Cannon Unleashes large beams that deal incredibly high damage. Causes thunderblight.

Divine Ire
A charged attack that unleashes a high-damage combo of a beam attack and a bomb attack similar to a wyvern blast.

Lightning Coils

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
MH Rise - Narwa
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.
MH Rise - Narwa
Double Coiled Fists: Narwa charges both fists and releases the coils towards the target at a staggered pace.
MH Rise - Narwa
Furious Fist Pumps: Narwa performs three quick double fist pumps towards the target, with each double fist pump unleashing a flurry of coils.
MH Rise - Narwa
Tri-Spark Combo: Narwa follows-up her Double Coiled Fists with a Coiled Thunder Bomb towards her target.
MH Rise - Narwa
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.
MH Rise - Narwa
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.
MH Rise - Narwa
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.
MH Rise - Narwa
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.

Tail Attacks

Narwa can use her massive tail to deal high damage to her targets.

Tail Attack Variations
MH Rise - Narwa
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.
MH Rise - Narwa
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!

Thunder Cannon

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
MH Rise - Narwa
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.
MH Rise - Narwa
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.
MH Rise - Narwa
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!
MH Rise - Narwa
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.

Thundersac Beams

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
MH Rise - Narwa
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.
MH Rise - Narwa
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.

Divine Light Show

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
MH Rise - Narwa
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.
MH Rise - Narwa
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

Homing Bolts Attack Information
MH Rise - Narwa
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

Spark Blasts Attack Information
MH Rise - Narwa
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

Dragon's Maw Attack Information
MH Rise - Narwa
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.

Dragon's Corkscrew

Narwa corkscrews in the air, travelling a great distance and potentially knocking anyone down in her path.

Dragon's Corkscrew Variations
MH Rise - Narwa
Uncharged Corkscrew: Narwa does a regular aerial corkscrew, similar to Ibushi's version.
MH Rise - Narwa
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.

Divine Ire

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
MH Rise - Narwa
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.
MH Rise - Narwa
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!
