Daimyo Hermitaur Attack Patterns

Daimyo Hermitaur is like a crab, so you can expect all common carb/shellfish tropes from Daimyo Hermitaur.

  • Froth Laser – Daimyo Hermitaur will gather Froth in its mouth and shoot them at you as a laser. While Daimyo Hermituar is shooting the froth, it will also move from side to side so you need to run to the sides, or jump over the laser. The froth laser is strong so you might want to watch out for it.
  • Jump Slam – Daimyo Hermitaur will occasionally jump up and land on you trying to smash you. The attack is extremely fast and you need to dodge as soon as you see Daimyo Hermitaur jump so you can avoid the slam.
  • Underground Attack – Daimyo Hermitaur will dig into the ground, and dig under you. It will then spring out and launch you into the air. The attack is also fast, but you want to time your dodge because it can turn to home on you.
  • Claw Pinch – The most basic attack, if you stand too close to Daimyo Hermitaur, it will use its claws. It can do it with both claws and smashing you in the center, or a single claw that smashes on you.

How to Defeat Daimyo Hermitaur in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

Focus on the Front

Daimyo Hermitaur’s back is covered by a strong shell and it takes reduced damage. Its best that you don’t waste your time attacking the back of Daimyo Hermitaur.

The best areas to focus on are the Face, Claws and Legs. These areas that have the highest damage and attacking the legs have a chance of knocking over Daimyo Hermitaur.

Regroup when the Monster is Blocking

Daimyo Hermitaur will often block your attacks by pulling both his claws in front of his face. Instead of attacking the beast, you should use this time to either heal or relocate, especially if there is another Daimyo Hermitaur near as it will come to its friend’s help.

Daimyo Hermitaur will hold the block for a short time so make sure you use this time to decide what you want to do.
