Royal Ludroth Attack Pattern

Learning the attack patterns of the Royal Ludroth in MH Rise is very important before you go ahead and fight it. The Royal Ludroth will perform the following attacks during your battle.

  • Water Breath: Royal Ludroth will spray water orbs in any direction. These orbs explode when they hit dealing AoE damage, also inflicting Waterblight debuff.
  • Flatten: The monster will bend its body back to gain height, then slams down on the ground. Royal Ludroth will take ample time to recover from this attack, providing a perfect window for attacking.
  • Rolling: Ludroth can roll on the hunter. This can either be a simple side roll, or a charged front roll where Royal Ludroth aims specifically for the hunter. Simply avoid it with a single dodge.
  • Water Breath Run: A variant of Water Breath where the monster runs around recklessly whilst shooting water orbs. The attack is fast and can catch you off-guard.
  • Water Recovery: With low health, the Royal Ludroth will go back to a water source and use it to regain some of its health.

How to Defeat Royal Ludroth in Monster Hunter Rise

Although Royal Ludroth has some pretty aggressive moves, it is not as difficult to defeat as it might look. Its moves include Torso Slam, Curl and Water Thunder Split in general.

Take out the Support

Being the Royal Ludroth, you do get multiple perks, such as having lots of smaller Ludroths to support you. These can be a huge nuisance and distract your fight with the Royal Ludroth. It’s recommended that you first kill them, or take out time to specially kill them so they don’t become too hard to handle.

Approaching Royal Ludroth

So, when you first get into the fight against the Royal Ludroth in MHR, keep your distance and don’t attack from the front. Ludroth is not quite flexible nor too fast, so you can always move to its side and attack easily. Note that its tail and limbs are also more prone to damage, so you should consider hitting them more often.

Attack Methodology

Even in the early game, attacking Ludroth’s head with impact damage will almost inflict stagger on it every time you do. When you have staggered it enough, you can choose to do Monsters: Wyvern Riding and run it into the rocks to deal further damage. Besides, every time you deal a critical hit, you will get an extract from its parts.

Gradually, its parts will break off and you will have a good collection of various extracts to increase your strength and endurance. When the Royal Ludroth’s parts are broken, it will run far into another area to recover stamina and will puff back up.
