|A gargantuan monster living in the darkest depths since ancient times. Gaismagorm's rock-like forearms boast tenacious strength which allows it to burrow undergournd. It has a symbiotic relationship with the Qurio, and feeds on their life force for energy. Once it has chosen a place to nest, it collapses the surrounding rock bed to create an opening to the surface. The opening forms a massive crater in which it releases the Qurio through.|

Higher numbers indicate higher potential damage to the monster.
Gaismagorm attacks with the explosive, crystallized Qurio on its carapace. Break these crystals by attacking, but beware: Gaismagorm can consume the shards and use them to deliver even more explosive attacks. When Gaismagorm climbs the pit's wall, it's readying a strong attack. Use the ballistae provided to stop it.

Follow Fiorayne's Advice
Prioritize Gaismagorm's Head and Wingarms
Flank Gaismagorm's Wingarms
Hide Behind the Rocks
Make Use of the Barrage Ballista
Avoid Red Zones
During the fight against Gaismagorm, Dame Fiorayne will notify you about certain mechanics becoming active or coming into play. Follow her advice and warnings to deal heavy damage towards Gaismagorm or avoid one of its devastating attacks.
Gaismagorm's head is its primary weak spot, so hunters should focus their attacks on this body part. There is usually enough time to perform a Switch Skill or a flurry of hits towards Gaismagorm's head between each of its attacks.
If dealing damage to its head is too risky, hunters should focus on its large wingarms instead. The wingarms are another major weak spot for Gaismagorm, so prioritize dealing damage on them over other body parts.
Staying behind or to the side of Gaismagorm's wingarms will keep you safe from most of its explosive blasts and slams. You will only need to move when it repositions or swings its body around, which deals significantly less damage than most of its other attacks.
When Gaismagorm performs its massive vacuum attack in the first phase, hide behind the rocks that protrude out of the ground to prevent yourself from being pulled into the Archdemon's maw.
During Gaismagorm's second phase, Barrage Ballista emplacements will fall from the sky when it decides to go for one of its strongest moves. Use these emplacements to shoot down the Qurio on Gaismagorm's back and prevent it from performing its attack.
Gaismagorm has several hard-hitting attacks that can instantly knock out any unprepared hunter when the ground or sky turns red. In particular, stay alert during Gaismagorm's second phase when the Archdemon's attacks become empowered.
|Wingarm Slam||Gaismagorm slams down one of its wingarms, dealing heavy damage on impact.|
|Explosive Clap||Gaismagorm charges up an explosive orb before detonating it by clapping it between its hands.|

|Gaismagorm Charge||A relentless forward charge that knocks away hunters caught in its path.|
|Biting Charge||Gaismagorm bites into the ground, knocking hunters upwards as it charges forward.|
|Gaismagorm Backblast||Gaismagorm charges up an explosive ball, firing it downwards and using the explosion's momentum to reposition backward.|
|Tail Slam||Gaismagorm slams its tail downwards before rotating to face the direction of the tail slam.|
|Gaismagorm Jump||Gaismagorm jumps towards the edge of the arena, knocking away hunters and making rocks protrude out of the ground after landing.|
|Straight Qurio Laser Breath||A Qurio-powered laser breath with a straight trajectory, dealing heavy damage on contact and causing delayed explosions on each surface it hits.|
|Sweeping Qurio Laser Breath||A Qurio-powered laser breath performing in a sweeping motion, dealing heavy damage on contact and causing delayed explosions on each surface it hits.|
|Archdemon Charge||Gaismagorm charges around the arena, leaving a trail of explosive orbs behind it. At the end of its charge, it roars to detonate the orbs, causing large explosions.|

|Wingarm Slam Attack Information|
Wingarm Slam: Gaismagorm winds up one of its wingarms before slamming it down, dealing heavy damage on impact knocking players backward.
Avoid this attack by reacting to the long wind-up animation and moving out of the attack's way.
|Explosive Clap Attack Information|
Explosive Clap: Gaismagorm spits out an explosive ball, charging it up before detonating it by clapping it between its hands.
Dodge inwards and underneath Gaismagorm's body to avoid this attack.
|Wingarm Sweep Attack Information|
Arm Sweep: Gaismagorm slams its wingarm into the ground before sweeping it across the area and spinning around, carried by the sweep's momentum.
This attack often comes with flying rocks or explosions, so remember to keep your distance from Gaismagorm until it finishes moving to properly avoid it.
|Gaismagorm Charge Attack Information|
Gaismagorm Charge: Gaismagorm rears back before relentlessly charging forward, knocking away hunters in its path. Afterward, it turns around to face the direction it came.
React to the attack's long wind-up animation and move out of its way to avoid getting hit.
|Biting Charge Attack Information|
Biting Charge: A variant of the Gaismagorm Charge, Gaismagorm bites down into the ground, launching hunters into the air before charging forward and dealing heavy damage.
Move away from Gaismagorm's mouth when it rears back to avoid being knocked upwards, and steer clear of the monster's path to avoid the charging attack.
|Gaismagorm Backblast Attack Information|
Gaismagorm Backblast: Gaismagorm charges up an explosive ball before firing it downwards and using the momentum to reposition backward.
Steer clear of Gaismagorm's mouth when it begins burning up to avoid this attack.
|Tail Slam Attack Information|

To avoid this attack, move away from Gaismagorm's tail and keep your distance until the attack finishes.
|Gaismagorm Jump Attack Information|
Gaismagorm Jump: Gaismagorm presses its limbs against the ground before jumping towards the edge of the arena. This move knocks away hunters when hit, and makes rocks protrude out of the ground upon landing.
This attack is quite easy to avoid since Fiorayne warns you when it is about to happen, giving you ample time to move away from Gaismagorm before it jumps.
|Straight Qurio Laser Breath Attack Information|
Straight Qurio Laser Breath: Gaismagorm rears back before letting out a Qurio-powered laser breath, dealing heavy damage on contact and causing delayed explosions on each surface it hits.
Stay alert for the attack's wind-up animation and move out of the laser breath's way to avoid this attack.
|Sweeping Qurio Laser Breath Attack Information|
Sweeping Qurio Laser Breath: Gaismagorm rears back before letting out a Qurio-powered laser breath in a sweeping motion, dealing heavy damage on contact and covering a large area with delayed explosions.
This attack has a similar wind-up animation to the Straight Qurio Laser Breath, so react accordingly by moving off to the side opposite where the laser breath begins to avoid it.
|Archdemon Charge Attack Information|
Archdemon Charge: Gaismagorm charges around the arena, leaving a trail of explosive orbs as it moves. At the end of its charge, it lets out a mighty roar that detonates each orb, causing large explosions that deal heavy damage.
Steer away from Gaismagorm's path and make plenty of distance away from each explosive orb to avoid being hit by this attack.
|Abyssal Slide Attack Information|
Abyssal Slide: Gaismagorm slams one of its wingarms into the ground before propelling itself forward with a blast, rapidly sliding towards the player.
Gaismagorm performs this attack twice in a row, so dive-evade perpendicular to the monster's path to avoid getting hit by each slide.
|Meteor Rain Attack Information|
Meteor Rain: Gaismagorm lets out a mighty roar upwards, causing the sky to turn red and meteors to fall from above.
While this attack leaves Gaismagorm vulnerable, prioritize dodging the red zones on the floor as each meteor deals significant amounts of damage.
|Abyssal Rampage Attack Information|
Abyssal Rampage: Gaismagorm thrashes about, repeatedly slamming its wingarms on the ground and causing massive explosions with each hit.
Gaismagorm's rampage ends with a delayed wingarm slam, so keep your distance from the monster and be prepared to dodge its final hit when this attack occurs.
|Vacuum Explosive Clap Combo Attack Information|
Vacuum Explosive Clap Combo: This attack happens immediately after Gaismagorm Jump. Gaismagorm vacuums everything in a large area in front of it, pulling in crystallized Qurios and hunters caught into the suction. Afterward, Gaismagorm performs a deadly explosive clap, dealing massive damage to any hunter it hits.
To avoid being hit by this attack, hide behind the rocks that protrude from the ground after Gaismagorm jumps.
|Massive Qurio Laser Breath Attack Information|
Massive Qurio Laser Breath: This attack occurs after failing to stop Gaismagorm from climbing up the wall when the Barrage Ballista arrive. A spark emanates from Gaismagorm's mouth before it lets out a massive Qurio-powered laser that deals heavy damage on impact and results in a massive explosion that deals immense damage.
Immediately run away from the laser and the red zones on the floor to prevent fainting from this massive attack.
