How to Beat Fulgur Anjanath

Attack From the Sides

How to Beat - Fulgur Anjanath 1.png
When Fulgur Anjanath is fully charged, he will sometimes hurl a mucus projectile in front of him. It is best if you stay on his sides and move away from its mouth as much as possible.

Attacking the Head

Attacking Fulgur Anjanath's head can also force him to release his charged state. However, this can be difficult since the head is his toughest part when he is charged. Try using a Clutch Claw to soften it up before using your strongest attacks.

Using Nullberries

If you ever get hit by Fulgur Anjanath's lightning attacks, you will be inflicted with Thunderblight. This will make you more vulnerable to stun attacks and it can last for a minute or until you get stunned. Always use a Nullberry when this status ailment is present to immediately counter its effect.

Stacking Thunder Resistance

It is recommended that you build up your thunder resistance by raising your Thunder Resistance Skill to level 3. This will not only boost your thunder resistance by 20 but it will also boost defense by 10 which can be extremely helpful during long fights.

Lightning Rush

How to Beat - Fulgur Anjanath 2.png
Fulgur Anjanath will only use his lightning rush attack when he is charged. This attack can instantly cart you or take a huge chunk of your health if Fulgur Anjanath hits you. Always check his movements to predict the attack, Fulgur Anjanath will always charge up his lightning before executing this attack. Use this as a signal to prepare yourself to dodge.

In addition, once Fulgur Anjanath uses this move. Fulgur Anjanath will release all his lightning energy and return to its normal state.
