They release larger quantities of the Frenzy virus, resulting in viral explosions with increased radius. Anything that gets in their way will fall prey to their powerful wingarms.

How to Beat Risen Shagaru Magala

Avoid the Ultimate Move Pillars AT ALL COST

Risen Shagaru Magala's ultimate move is a One Hit KO Move and it can catch unsuspecting Hunters that gets caught in the crossfire.

Always make sure to avoid the pillars that this move summon, as getting hit by one of them ensures that you're gonna get hit by the final, powerful blast. Once you've avoided the pillars, execute an emergency evade to not get damaged by the final blast!

Take Note of Its Three States

Risen Shagaru Magala States

Normal State: Risen Shagaru Magala has a darker tone than the normal Shagaru Magala - boasting a shade closer to a Gore Magala.

Frenzied State: This state will see risen Shagaru Magala have frenzy virus floating around it.

Risen State: Risen Shagaru Magala will have the signature orange tone of a Risen Elder Dragon - most prominently seen on its wings and horns.

Risen Shagaru Magala has a third Risen State that can go on top of its Frenzied State.

In this state, Risen Shagaru Magala is faster & more aggressive, and it has access to more area of effect frenzy moves including its Risen ultimate - we dubbed as Rising Pillar Burst - that can cart hunters instantly!

Bring Nulberries to Reduce Frenzy Progression

Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak - Bring Nullberries

Risen Shagaru Magala still uses Frenzy attacks, so the ailment will still be present in the fight. The only way to positively mitigate this ailment is to attack enough and cure it.

But, in case you want to be cautious and bide your time to look for openings, Nulberries will be your friend.

Nulberry: How to Get and Effects

Deal Enough Damage to Remove Its Risen State

Shagaru Magala's Risen state is when it's most dangerous, so aim to remove it as much as possible. To do this, be aggressive and deal enough damage - like how Hunters have always dealt with all past Risen Elder Dragons!

Frenzy State KO is Different from Risen

The video above shows Risen Shagaru Magala being toppled out of its Frenzied State only.

Also take note that when a KO from the frenzy state is different from a KO from the Risen state! You might think it's out of its Risen state, but it's not.

Being KO'd from the frenzied state will see Shagaru Magala expelling dark purple clouds - in contrast to an orange effect when it topples out of its Risen state.

Getting Shagaru Magala out of its Frenzied State is more specific than Risen, as you have to target its head. Take note of this when attacking this Elder Dragon.

Safest Place is Around the Hind Legs

Like the normal Shagaru Magala, the safest place to attack is still around its hind legs. This is not optimal, as the highest damage is best dealt on the head - but in case you just want to deal damage to take it out of the Risen state, it's more consistent to stay around this area.

Risen Shagaru Magala Attacks and Moves

Risen Shagaru Magala share the same moves as the normal Master Rank Shagaru Magala. Once it activates its Risen state though, Risen Shagaru Magala unlocks a few deadly moves capable of carting any unsuspecting Hunter in one hit. Here are some of the new moves that all Hunters should be aware of!

Name Description
Initiator Arm Slam Risen Shagaru Magala hops a good distance to get near a hunter, then slams its powerful wingarms.
Risen Frenzy Breath Risen Shagaru Magala breathes exploding frenzy energy in a wide area infront of it while moving sideways to confuse Hunters.
Risen Wingarm Slam Risen Shagaru Magala slams its wingarms charged with Frenzy Energy multiple times.
Rising Pillar Burst
Risen Shagaru Magala's one hit KO move. It summons multiple pillars around the Hunter that narrows down to the center, then it uses a blast attack to finish the move off.

Initiator Arm Slam

Initiator Arm Slam Attack Information

Initiator Arm Slam: Risen Shagaru Magala hops and initiates an attack with its powerful wingarms. This can catch overconfident Hunters that think they have quite a distance away from Shagaru!

Always be aware of this move, as it can catch anyone off guard. Always be on the ready to avoid attacks even if Shagaru is far away.

Risen Frenzy Breath

Risen Frenzy Breath Attack Information

Risen Frenzy Breath: Risen Shagaru Magala breaths on the ground and scatters exploding frenzy energy that homes on the Hunter. It will also move while doing this, to confuse the Hunter even more.

To avoid this, simply sheath your weapon and move! You may also roll consecutive times.

Risen Wingarm Slams

Risen Wingarm Slams Attack Information

Risen Wingarm Slam: Risen Shagaru Magala slams its powerful wingarms, creating pillars of frenzy that propagates forward. It does this move for up to 3 to 4 consecutive times, so don't Wirefall haphazardly.

Rising Pillar Burst

Rising Pillar Burst Attack Information

Rising Pillar Burst: Risen Shagaru Magala rises to the air and summons pillars of frenzy around the battlefield that spins around while getting near each other. Anyone caught in the center will be incapacitated, opening them up for the final deadly blast.

It is imperative to not get hit by any of the pillars because that opens you up to the final blast. Don't be complacent if you've avoided the pillars though - the final blast has a wide area of effect so execute an emergency evade in time for the explosion.
