You can only encounter Safi'jiiva at a unique place: the Secluded Valley.
Safi'jiiva has no elemental weaknesses. Poison, Blast, and Elderseal are effective against it.
No body part information is currently known for this Monster. Check back for more details as we continue to investigate!
It is recommended that you fight Safi'Jiiva with multiple hunting parties and divide which part each party will try to destroy for more siege points.
Sapphire of the Emperor is one of the most powerful attacks in the game. It can only be encountered when fighting against Safi'Jiiva during the siege. To avoid fainting from this attack. Be sure to hide behind the crags Safi'Jiiva will provide before executing the Sapphire of the Emperor
The crags will be destroyed after Safi'Jiiva uses the Sapphire of the Emperor in the final zone. You must attack Safi'Jiiva constantly to make him struggle and create bew crags which you can use to hide for the next Sapphire of the Emperor.
|Reasons You Don't Get Crags|
|・Lack of damage dealt to Safi'Jiiva|
|・Failure to get Safi'Jiiva's Ire|
|・Safi'Jiiva was not able to do his attack to produce more crags|
|There is a small chance that you can stop Safi'Jiiva from executing the Saphire of the Emperor by using a Flash Pod if timed correctly.|
In order to defeat Safi'Jiiva, you will need to deplete all of the energy present in each area by attacking Safi'Jiiva himself. Once you deplete all of the energy in the area, a notification will appear on the screen telling you that Safi'Jiiva will move on to the next area.
There are two droppable rocks in the first area during the siege. You can use these two rocks to deal massive damage to Safi'Jiiva to immediately deplete all the energy in the first area.
Stay defensive and try to survive for as long as you can when you are being targeted by Safi'Jiiva. If you want to get Safi'Jiiva's Ire, it is recommended that you use gun lance or lance so your team will have more time attack.
Elderseal weapons drains more energy than other status effect weapons. It is suggested that you use Elderseal in the 2nd and 3rd area where it is a lot more difficult to deplete the energy.
Safi'Jiiva will constantly regenerate his wounds when draining energy from the area. This can lower your damage output and give you a harder time during the fight. Try to use your Clutch Claws to soften up the parts you want to break off or to create new wounds to deal more damage.
Safi'Jiiva will shoot fire while someone is grabbed, this will deal massive damage and will apply burning to the grabbed hunter. Be sure to prepare Dust of Life as soon as the hunter escapes to prevent him/her from dying.
Safi'Jiiva slightly glows when you reach the critical state. Here Safi'Jiiva will be softer but will deal more damage than the usual.
Bringing a Poison weapon or a Poison Smoke Bomb can be helpful during the siege since you can easily inflict a Poison status to Safi'Jiiva. The Poison status can deal up to 2000 damage to Safi'Jiiva if it is applied for 1 minute. You can also further enhance the damage of your poison by using the Pink Rathian Armor Set.
