Gold rathian..

#1MellowButtersPosted 7/22/2013 11:03:41 PM
I usually take her down in about 20-25 minutes with the brachy x armor and the final brachy SA, not too happy with those numbers :/, and i have so much trouble cutting off the dang tail, thing is i REALLY dont feel like farming for some thunder weapons,so are any non-lightning suggestions you guys can throw at me?

also some tips would be appreciated

I use Spectral Demolisher DS and Rathalos Sol Z Armor Set. it usually takes me 15-17mins soloing without bombs or traps. If you already know how she moves you can go very aggressive with DS, just go on combo attack the legs while perfectly dodging her attack. Do not spam DD. Just use DD when she is down. I usually DD her tail first before her face. So always attack her legs so that she will always fall on the ground.

The best switch axe is the lucent narga one. Is that available to you yet?

Wow i must say, very impressive! not really aiming for silver sol armor right now tho, wouldnt the brachy armor be a good substitute? I mean it has bombardier which makes slime weapons better.

Also would the same setup be alright for farming silver los?

For MellowButters:
Yes, the brachy set is still a good substitute. I usually switch from those 2 armor sets. The only difference is for brachy set, you dont have HGE. HGE is very helpful for DS. This kinda helps a lot for DS users especially when you are already doing combo attacks, then suddenly the monster rages, so your timing and combo attack does not stop as long as you got HGE. Fencing can be obtain by going in demonization mode, but do not do DD, just do combo attacks instead. Release demonization mode if you are almost out of stamina so you can still dodge attacks.

So brachy gives bombardier for additional damage while HGE in rath sol Z, you can continue with your combo which means damage to monster which I think compensate with the additional damage cause by the bombardier.

Sorry, but I don't have any fast run picture wearing the Brachy Set Spectral Demolisher for Gold Rathian.


Regarding Silver Rathlos, yes this set (both Brachy and Rath Sol) can be a good setup since you don't get burn blights when you get hit by silver rathalos fireball. But I would still recommend HGE since when Rathlos rages, it fires a fireball on the ground while flying backward. There is a possibility that you are between the legs doing attack combos on the legs and you might caught up with the Rathalos Rage fireball combo if you dont have HGE or using Brachy Set. You can continue attacking the legs while Rathalos is shouting and then dodge to the left or right to avoid the fireball ones rathalos is about to fly backward and fires its fireball.

Wait a minute..all this time you were talking about rath SOUL armor, i thought you meant silver SOL armor lol ok not a problem, thats the second G rank set i made. This is perfect, thanks for all your help, i tried a run with it and took it down in around 20 minutes, but i have plenty of room for improvement and i can see the 15 minute mark in reach

Im using kelbi bow and full helios X gemmed for focus (and fire res 15, was on the charm) and cap it between 11 and 13 min normally.

shes one of those monsters where weakpoints are hard to hit and slime works well against, plus air staggers are fun :)

oh and EDIT: this takes only a small amoount of moveset knowledge to not get hit and barely any skill to do^^
