Keeping the Pressure

Kulve Taroth will try to escape if you do not meet the damage threshold needed in each area. Be sure to keep on attacking to prevent this from happening.

Breaking Parts and Extending the Time

Destroying body parts of Kulve Taroth will keep her in the area for more time to complete the hunt. Since the goal is to subdue Kulve Taroth not to break her parts, try to focus on dealing as much damage as you can while breaking vulnerable parts using different elemental weapons.

Breaking the Chest Armor

The chest area of Kulve Taroth can easily be injured and blown off by using explosives. Try to aim for this part the most until it breaks off since it is one of his most vulnerable parts.

Using the Wedge Beetles

You can swing and grapple across the map using the wedge beetles that are scattered all over the areas during the hunt, this will allow you to mount Kulve Taroth and down her quickly for your team to deal damage. Try to do this often to maximize your damage output and break off Kulve Taroth parts as you attack with your team.

Softening Kulve Taroth

Since Kulve Taroth can be pretty tough when she is wearing her gold armor, it is important to soften her parts using your clutch claws to make your attacks stronger.

It is highly recommended that you use Temporal Mantle during the hunt to avoid taking damage while focusing on breaking parts.

Use Environmental Hazards

Try to utilize the collapsable rocks that can deal massive damage on Kulve Taroth, these rocks are present in most areas and it can be quite useful especially if you are lacking damage to keep her from escaping. Using these rocks will not only down Kulve Taroth but also release her from enraging. This will allow you to use your clutch claws on both of her hind legs and tail to deal more damage

Kulve Taroth Weaknesses

How to Beat - Kulve Taroth 5.jpg
Kulve Taroth is weak against Thunder when she is wearing her golden armor, and weak against ice during the last phase. It is recommended that you use a Thunder-based affinity weapon at the beginning of the hunt and then return to camp later to switch if for an ice-based weapon once the armor is released.

Blast Damage

Blast-type weapons can also be useful in the hunt since they can deal 600 damage per proc. If used correctly and efficiently, this can be a can be highly effective especially if you do not have other elemental weapons.

Using Farcaster

As Kulve Taroth moves to the second area of the map, she will block off the path that can lead you back to area 1. Because of this, there is no way that you can walk back to the camp to replenish your items unless you use a Farcaster.

Final Phase

How to Beat - Kulve Taroth 5.png
Once Kulve Taroth has arrived in the final area, she will be enraged and there is no way to remove this unless you put her to sleep. Because of this, try to focus on putting her to sleep only during the final phase. As soon as she falls asleep, prepare large barrel bombs with the rest of your team to maximize your damage.

In addition, the Challenger Mantle can be extremely useful to keep Kulve Taroth from attacking the rest of your team while she is enraged.

Avoiding the Lava

During the last phase of Kulve Taroth, she will sometimes perform an attack wherein she drops lava from the ceiling which can be pretty hard to avoid because of the camera restrictions. You can easily counter this if you are using a weapon with a shield by holding your guard. However, if you are using a different weapon, you should try to avoid the lava by rolling away from the area.

Shiny Drops

A large number of lost items will drop from Kulve Taroth as you break her parts. Be sure to pick them all up as they can be used when making weapons and armors.

When to Loot Shiny Drops

It is best that you only focus on picking up these shiny drops as soon as Kulve Taroth starts to move to a different area. This will allow you to constantly attack her and keep on the pressure without losing any damage.
