    [2] INTRODUCTION
    ================
    
    
    And here we are. welcome to the Yian Garuga in-depth guide!
    in this guide,I'll cover everything that are related to the ol' Garuga.
    including the move lists,equipments and everything you need in 
    order to conquer the Garuga.
    all right,here goes..
    
    
    [2a] What's Yian Garuga?
    
    Yian Garuga is the altered version of Yian Kut Ku. that is much stronger
    than any Kut-Kus.
    
    His body was deep-purple colored and lots of spikes over all his body.
    has bigger beak,and was half-broken, it shows that he's individual,wild 
    creature.
    
    His moves are the combinations of Yian Kut Ku's and Rathian's. so you'll see 
    some familiar moves from him.
    
    Yian Garuga,according to the Minegarde Biologist,Halos Nach Tariff :
    
    "Yian Garuga, I was wondering when that would pop-up, throughout the various 
    other Wyvern Theory topics I have been plagued with posts stating 
    Rathian + Kut Ku= Garuga. 
    This is simply not true, take a look at what we know; firstly the anatomy of 
    the Garuga, it is clearly an avian, bird-like, wyvern it has a large beak and 
    a bird-like pelvis, in this aspect it is similar to the Kut-Ku.The only aspects
    it shares with the Rathian 
    are it's poisonous tail and aerial backflip attack. Kut-Ku itself is also a 
    Bird Wyvern whereas Rathian is a 'True' Wyvern, it shares no characteristics 
    with the Kut-Ku. I think I would be fairly safe in saying that the two are not 
    only seperate species but from completely seperate genuses. Biology tells us 
    that two creatures from different species cannot produce fertile young, mules,
    ligers and tigons all prove this. Creatures from seperate genuses cannot mate 
    at all, thay are just too different, there is no way that the Yian Garuga is 
    the spawn of a Rathian and a Kut-Ku.
        Where did it come from then? In my previous topics there were a few 
    possible answers to this question: Firstly the game itself states that the 
    Garuga is a Sub-Species of Kut-Ku, it's as simple as that, Garuga is simply a 
    creature which evolved from the same ancestor as Kut-Ku but in a harsher 
    environment. This is one view. Secondly it can be argued that the Garuga is a 
    mutant Kut-Ku, perhaps there is a gene found in the Kut-Ku which, when 
    stimulated, causes the Kut-Ku to become a Garuga, in a similar way to Axotl 
    becoming Salamanders when they leave the water. Thirdly it is possible that a 
    Yian Garuga is a cast-out Kut-Ku which has learned to fend for itself, 
    becoming more adapted in the process. This is the least likely theory as it
    doesn't explain the Garuga's altered appearence, although it does explain the 
    scars on a Garuga's body. Those are the three basic arguments, I'm interested 
    in hearing what other people have to say about this."
    
    well,it's like what's on above. for more information about MH biology,
    go to Minegarde MHF2 forums.
    
    [2b] Why Yian Garuga?
    
    Even though that most hunter could overcome Garuga,some hunter couldn't.
    Yian Garuga is a bit tricky creature,that you can't fight it with a regular 
    basis of strategyused on Kut Ku. that's why I'm making this guide.
    
    
    Done with the introduction,we will move into deeper into the depth of this 
    guide.

    =============
    [4] MOVE LIST
    =============
    
    Most of Yian Garuga's attack patterns are similiar to Yian Kut Ku and Rathian.
    but they're somewhat mixed and harder to evade than usual.
    
    
    Since it got almost no original attack,I'll divide the move list into 3 parts:
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    [4a] Yian Kut Ku-look-a-like Moves
    ```````````````````````````````````
    
    -Peck
    peck like a chicken. pretty same with Yian Kut Ku and Gypceros.
    he use this very often. and if he turns to you slowly,that means he'll do this
    move.
    Damage? moderate.
    Tips? don't stand for too long in his front. use roll wisely
    
    -Chicken Run
    run like a sissies. similiar with Kut Ku and Gypceros.
    he uses this usually when he's going to retreat to another area
    Damage? umm,low.
    Tips? I doubt that you'll get hit by this because usually,a bite will follow
    after this move
    
    -Tail Whip
    well,he uses the Kut Ku's one too. but note that Garuga's tail whip is far
    more dangerous than Kut Ku. because there's a high chance you'll get poisoned 
    if you're hit by it.
    Damage? Moderate,plus Poison will make it high.
    Tips? as soon as you noticed that he's going to do this,roll outside or inside
    his body to escape his hitboxes
    
    
    -Charge Through
    again,same as Kut Ku. but the difference is that he'll do this VERY often and
    without any warnings. beware. everyone died because of this. and yes,it HURTS.
    Damage? High,beware.
    Tips? if you noticed that he's turning fast to your position,don't just stand
    still. run in circular way.
    Note that he'll do this way MORE often when in Rage.
    
    -Taunt
    he uses Kut Ku's taunt. and as usual,he ask you to assault his head.
    Damage? no,you do the damage.
    Tips? no need to ask,GET HIM!
    Note that usually he'll follow this move directly with Quick Scream. so for 
    those who didn't use Earplug,be careful.
    
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    [4b] Rathian-look-a-like-Moves
    ```````````````````````````````
    
    -Fireball
    shoot a straight fireball. pretty similiar
    Damage? Moderate.
    Tips? his straight fireball is very linear. just roll to the right/left OR 
    just block it.
    
    -Spreading Fireballs
    shoot multiple fireballs in 3 directions. same as what Rathian always does.
    Damage? Moderate.
    Tips? his triple fireballs don't have long range,unlike the single one.
    so you might want to stay beside him or just keep a quite distance.
    
    -Somersault
    he pulls back,jump and if you're not careful you'll kiss his tail along with
    99% chance to get Poison.
    Damage? High,plus Poison. eww.. 
    Tips? it's the same thing as Rathian's so don't stay for too long in front of 
    him.
    note that he'll produce several winds during this move.
    
    -Bite
    he does the Kut Ku's chicken run first then bite you like a maniac.
    Damage? Low.
    Tips? a little side step will solve all problems.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    [4c] Yian Garuga's Original Moves
    ``````````````````````````````````
    
    and guess what? 
    
    -Quick Scream
    he'll stand up (just like Gypceros's flashes) and scream. this happens usually
    after he's taunting and it's very fast,and I'm not sure if you could dodge 
    it/block it on time if you're not careful.
    Damage? vary. depends on his next move
    Tips? Earplug is more than enough to negate his scream
    
    -Back Jump Scream
    same as Kut Ku's back jump. but this time,combined with scream. 
    so,roars + winds = bad news for you  
    Damage? none. you'll be able to escape on time. supposedly.
    Tips? Earplug is your friend. if not,go with a weapon with guard capabilities.

    [][][][][]
    Armor Sets
    [][][][][]
    
    Since Yian Garuga does roar often and it has very thick shells,you might want 
    to use armor sets with Earplug or ESP on it.
    
    
    For Beginners (HR1-HR3)
    
    [Ceanataur]
    Skills:Autotrakcer, Sharp Sword, Sharpening Skl Inc, Defense-20
    (Psychic Jewel x5, Grinder Jewel x1)
    -this is the earliest all purpose set for blademaster.you won't have any 
    trouble with sharpness.

    Attack jewel),and Reckless Abandon+2 (again, add some Expert jewels)
    -You won't be affected by Garuga's screams and you'll get high boost power.
    
    [Tigrex]
    Skills: Autotracker,Quick Eating,Earplug (add 2 Earplug Jewel)
    -yet another perfect armor for Garuga. Quick Eating will help more than
    you can imagine.
    
    For Advanced (HR4-HR6)
    
    Anything with Earplug and ESP will do the job.
    let's say..
    -Dark Akantor (Earplug,Reckless Abandon+3 (1 Expert,1 Celebrity),Sharpness+1)
    -Silver Sol (ESP,Attack Up Medium,Earplug(10 Earplug Jewel))
    -Ceanataur [SUUSS] (Sharpness+1,Sharp Sword,Reckless Abandon or Sharp SkillInc)

    [9] FAQs
    =========
    
    Q : What's the difference between elder Garuga and the downloaded one?
    A : They're basically same. their moves and carveable items were same. though 
        their HP were slightly different from each other and the Downloaded one has 
        higher HP.
    
    Q : So,what's the point of hunting the downloaded one?
    A : you'll need to hunt 10 Kut Kus to unlock it in the Elder quest. also you 
        need to finish 2 Urgent Quest to reach him.so the downloaded one can be 
        taken at the very early game. but I see no point of doing that.
    
    Q : Why using Yian Garuga equipments?
    A : 1) His armor sets are good deal for those who just starting out. it has 
           the earliest Sharp Sword,RA,and Earplug combo.
        2) His weapons have the 2nd greatest affinity value after Akantor
    
    Q : I can't get Garuga Wing!
    A : Try to break both his wings. if you still don't get it,try capturing him.
    
    Q : I spotted some errors. can I e-mail you?
    A : sure.with the right ettiquette,I'll welcome any corrections and suggestions
