Arch Tempered Namielle's dive attack is best dodged by using a superman dive. When the camera zooms out slightly, it is a good cue to immediately sheathe your weapon and go for the dodge.
Arch-Tempered Namielle's dive attack can inflict multiple hits and can easily break through guards. Avoid blocking it or suffer tremendous damage. The attack also cannot be completely blocked without the Guard Up skill so when fighting AT Namielle with a weapon that can block, try to include it to your skills.
Moves like the Greatsword's Tackle and the Longsword's Iai Slash can be double-edged in this fight. Namielle has moves that can hit an unstoppable character multiple times in a single attack. This also makes the Rocksteady mantle dangerous to use.
Longranged attacks such as bullets and arrows won't work on Namielle's hide when it's cloaked with water. Try to aim for other body parts when using ranged weapons.
|Skills||Reason It's good|
|Coalescence||AT Namielle can inflict two blights. It's more than likely that you'll get hit with one so instead of losing DPS trying to cure it, turn it to a damagebuff with Coalescence!|
|Critical Eye||More DPS, pretty much a staple in any affinity based build|
|Weakness Exploit||More DPS, pretty much a staple in any affinity based build|
|Evade Window||AT Namielle's lasers can be hard to dodge, especially since when it uses its breath, it tends to move the laser and it can hit in unpredictable angles. Having Evade Window makes dodging these lasers less irritating.|
|Critical Boost||More DPS, pretty much a staple in any affinity based build|
|Health Boost||A near necessity to survive AT Namielle's attacks. (Not required if wielding a 4 piece Fatalis set.|
|Tool Specialist||Ice Proof mantle is one of your best friends against AT Namielle and maintaining its uptime via Tool Specialist will greatly improve your survivability.|
|Agitator||With the addition of the Clutch Claw, enraging monsters is one of the easiest tasks to do in the game. Agitator is pretty much a flat buff at this point and you're losing out on damage if you don't have it in your loadout.|
|Fire Elemental Weapons||AT Namielle's Weakness|
|Waterproof Mantle||The ultimate use of Waterproof mantle isn't to reduce AT Namielle's water elemental attacks (but yes it can). It's real purpose is to improve your mobility whenever AT Namielle starts to spread water on the battlefield. It can also be used to cure Waterblight when you get afflicted.|
|Temporal Mantle||The next best mantle to use against AT Namielle. Its duration can run out pretty quickly due to AT Vel's hard damage and multiple random attacks but it can still potentially save you from otherwise lethal attacks.|
|Evasion Mantle||If you're confident in your dodging abilities, Evasion Mantle can be a huge asset for you. Not only does it improve your evasion invulnerability, it also increases your attack for every narrow dodges you make.|
|Vitality Mantle||An extra layer of life can be what you just need to survive AT Namielle's new moves.|

|Mega Demondrug / Armorskin||Increased Durability and Increased Damage for the whole duration of the fight.|
|Poison Smokebomb||AT Namielle is extremely weak to poison. Two poison smokebombs is enough to poison it (single player) and it's a free damage so make sure to use it at the start of the fight.|
|Vigorwasp||An extra life will always help. Be sure to swap this out with a different gadget like the Meowlotov or Coral Orchestra once its revive effect has been used.|
|Meowlotov Cocktail||Additional free damage is always welcome against AT Namielle. The short time that's given to you can likely make the quest result in failure if you fail to keep the pressure on AT Namielle.|
|Felyne Insurance/Safeguard||More lives are always welcome.|
|Felyne Moxie||Unlike Fatalis, AT Namielle's attacks doesn't have DOTs. This makes Moxie an incredible skill to have as a single max potion can instantly refill your HP to full.|
|Felyne Specialist||if you opt to use Blast (Namielle's 2nd weakness), the Felyne Specialist can make ailments proc easier.|
