Thunderclap(or thunderclap+) and full lagiacrus armor will destroy ceadeus.

Use any weapon you're good with, a lance is a good idea because just him moving can hurt you. He's weakest to Thunder, Dragon and Fire(note: he's mostly weak to fire on his beard). The best armor for Ceadeus is Lagiacrus(Olympic Swimmer, Element Atk Up, Razor Sharp, Status Atk Down with +10 Water resistance).

Use full lagi for the skills and resistance, and use a thunder weapon. It does equal damage on the un-destroyed beard, and more damage on everything else. Fire does next to nothing on the rest of his body. I know that lances destroy ceadeus, especially with the dashing attack. Fire isnt a good thing to use.

ThunderClap+ or Heavens thunder if you can get it is the way to go. I usually am able to kill it right before times up. For quicker farming you can not kill him when you know you're about to and avoid everything he does. Start the next quest with him and he'll be killed within the first 5 minutes. Reset the Wii if you don't get what you want.

Good luck

@AllHailShadow13

fire? lol no. thunder or dragon, but if you havent played online go with thunder(even if you have an ancient weapon) the reason you should use LS is because of the spirit combo, in red it can do a LOT of damage.

pkmndudeman, although Thunder and Dragon are better, Fire is still an option. It does good damage on his beard and even more damage on his bread after you break it. And any weapon can do a LOT of damage if you use it right(even a SnS).

Ceadeus hitzone and Element damage(numbers in -s are Fire, in =s are Water, in <>s are Thunder, in []s are Ice, and in {}s are Dragon) :
Face -5- =0= <20> [5] {25}
Horns -10- =0= <25> [0] {35}
Beard -10- =0= <10> [0] {20}
Destroyed Beard -15- =0= <5> [0] {15}
Hood -5- =0= <15> [5] {20}
Stomach -5- =0= <15> [0] {30}
Fin -5- =0= <20> [0] {20}
Tail -10- =0= <25> [5] {20}

As you can see, Thunder and Dragon are the best but Fire is an option. Not the best option, but if you don't have Thunder or Dragon you can use Fire for ok damage.

SA suck under water as do GS's. go with your thunderclap. Honestly he is really easy and you don't really have to prepare that much. Just bring a lot of airweed and beat the Cea out of him.

The way I kill it wouldnt be open to you at this point but what I used offline was full lagi with the rusted lance upgraded as high as I could go offline only. Bring at least 2 barrel bomb large+ to drop in the area his beard broke. Drop em durin that animation. The next time you should use the supply barrel bOmbs to use while he is immobile for the first aproximently 45 second when you reach the final zone. Might pills rock. Good luck!

Oh. If rusted isnt an option use lagi lance. Sorry for answering twice!

This shouldn't even be a question. Look at a monsters armor in the forgery to determine its weaknesses, it's as simple as that. For the best damage dealing weapon/armor combo, wear Deviljho armor with an onslaught jewel attached (+5 attack). There, you already have atk up L by only using one armor's 3 slots. Throw in a hungerless jewel and you won't lose stamina faster than normal. Use Dark Claw "Demise". Hold the power charm and power talon (power charm combined with a deviljho talon) for high attack boost. Dark Claw "Demise" with all of this will have the attack of 709 and dragon element 470. Use a demondrug (or megademondrug if you're feeling wasteful) and your attack is even higher. If you use the dragonator twice and successfully Ceadus will be dead before the 10 minute marker has been reached, or near. I suppose you can use Ceadus armor to do it, but I don't think he roars enough to warrant it.

As for the barrel bombs, use them first thing in the quest. Swim ahead of Ceadus and angle your position to compensate for the downward sloped way he swims in the first part. Just get a little bit in front of him and use your camera to look behind you. He pauses quickly, and you can place both bombs. He'll either be paused where you set them, or will swim towards them slowly. If you're using a LongSword, you can use quickdraw on the barrels to make sure his horns are hit. Using dragonator only once after usually breaks off a horn.

Just finished the quest with 15 minutes left and only one dragonator use. If you attack him from around the area of his fin with a LS, your will not be hit by his tail, head wobble, or quick snakey-movement-rush. You can also parry away from his "hydro pump" and quickly resume attacking. When you do your super samurai rush with the LS you will also be able to avoid lots of getting hit situations.

I beat ceadeus with wyvern blade fire soooo fire is an option.
Wants ta kill it now...Thunderclap?

Rated: +0 / -0

Use the thunder clap, Guan Dao if you play online or undertaker
I repelled it with wyvern blade fire but I recommend you undertaker or guan Dao

Rated: +0 / -0

It doesn't matter but I would reccomend long sword thunderclap and lagi armor all you need to do is land a few decent hits on him, and in area 3 use the dragonator (twice for a quick kill) it is around the top of the map.
