Their abundance of dragon energy has granted them greater agility, and even more devastating explosive powers. Very few will be able to withstand their ferocious attacks.

Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax Hunting Tips

MH Rise Sunbreak - Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax Hunting Tips

After inflicting a sufficient amount of damage to a Risen elder dragon, they'll enter into a Risen state. In this state, their attacks are much more powerful. With Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax, they'll amass all their strength in one wing before doing a spin attack, and skewering their prey. Stay on the offensive to prevent them from entering this state or to knock them out of it.

How to Beat Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax

Beware of Its Risen State

MH Rise Sunbreak - Risen Valstrax Risen State

In addition to its usual enraged state, Crimson Glow Valstrax will enter an even deadlier Risen State. During this time, Valstrax can deal enough damage to one-shot unaware Hunters so be extra-extra careful.

Deal Enough Damage to Remove Risen State

Like all Risen Elder Dragons, dealing enough damage to Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax will knock off the Risen state causing it to topple down! This gives Hunters a big window to attack!

Attack The Chest While Charging

MH Rise - Crimson Glow Valstrax Attack the Chest

The image above is for the normal CG Valstrax, but the technique still holds up for this Risen version.

Like the normal Crimson Glow Valstrax, this Risen Valstrax will also charge up dragon energy periodically during the fight. Whenever you see this, do not miss the chance to attack its chest!

Dealing enough damage to this part while charging will cause the chest to implode, dealing around 2000 damage to Valstrax!

Increase Your Defenses

MH Rise Elemental Damage Guide - Increase Your Defenses

Risen Valstrax can one shot Hunters, especially when in the Risen state. To increase your chances of surviving, make sure that your armor's defenses is upgraded at max level!

You may also slot in skills like Defense Boost and Defiance to increase your defenses even more!

Eat for Moxie

MH Rise Sunbreak - Eat Dango to Get Moxie

Since Valstrax can one-shot unsuspecting Hunters, we suggest getting Dango Moxie so you can survive a supposedly cartable attack. Take note that this only activates in the village, so eating in camp won't work!

Moxie is found in the Magnacrisp dango!

Magnacrisp Dango Effects

Collect Spiribirds to Increase HP

Knowing how hard Risen Valstrax hit, we suggest collecting Spiribirds to increase your maximum health gauge! The route above will let you collect enough to max the health gauge in around 1m20s!

Bring Followers in Solo Runs

MH Rise Sunbreak - Choose Followers at the Quest Counter

If you plan on running Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax solo, we suggest taking Followers in hunts! We recommend using Fugen and Hinoa since Hinoa's HH can provide buffs and can even KO Risen Valstrax together with Fugen's Hammer.

Sunbreak Best Follower Tier List

Bring Nulberries

MH Rise Sunbreak - Bring Nulberries

Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax's attacks inflict Dragonblight. This particular blight completely negates your weapon's element or status ailment so always make sure you bring a full stack of Nulberries into the fight.
